On1 Culture Exclusive Interview: Stereo Boyz

Stereo Boyz
Recently, I was able to get an EXCLUSIVE interview with The Stereo Boyz from Detroit who graciously granted me access to their busy schedule. They have been locked in the Lab for weeks working on several projects at once. When we finally connected it went down like this...

WHAT WAS IT LIKE DIRECTING AS A RAPPER FOR THE FIRST TIME? 
 The same excitement as creating anything, Love it!



"CIRCUS ACT " IS INTERESTING TO ME; DO YOU THINK PEOPLE GET IT? THE ONES WHO SHOULD?
 Yeah & Yeah, because if you get it then someone else will. The world is huge, but we all connect. 

I'VE NOTICED YOU HAVE WHAT I'M GOING TO CALL " MICRO MOVIES " , DO YOU ONE DAY WANT TO DIRECT FILMS?
Thanks, great question. We approach everything in the same way & energy when creating anything. Film & music go hand in hand so directing films.....I can't say much , but there are some interesting things to come . All we ask is keep them eyes & ears open!

BESIDES MARVIN SEASE , I DON'T THINK I'VE EVER HEARD A SONG ABOUT EATING PUSSY. WHAT BROUGHT THAT ABOUT?

MIC AUDIO: 100-degree weather, working in a security booth with a hair salon next door. I had time to think outside the box.

WHAT GOT YOU INTO MUSIC? 
 Destiny.
 

TOE TO TOE, WHO WOULD YOU WANT TO BATTLE?

MIC AUDIO: Everybody that's worth it isn't here anymore, like Biggie.

KID BOOMBOX: 
Them All!
MIXO: I wish a motherfucker would, LOL! But like "MIC" said, it has to be worth it. Who is?

ANY ADVICE FOR ANYONE TRYING TO GET INTO THE BUSINESS?

MIXO: Stay focused , understand loyalty and unity is key . For every No there's a Yes. Get your ass up and find them!

HANDS DOWN, WHERE'S THE BEST PLACE TO GET A CONEY ISLAND DOG IN THE CITY?
We aren't Coney dog eaters, Chi-town got our favorite Midwest dogs. But the best Coney's to grab or any type of food are, Nickey D (on the Eastside), Detroit One (Downtown) & EL Georges (on the Westside).

WHAT'S NEXT FOR MIXO AND THE REST OF THE CREW?
We are currently working the European release of Mic Audio's new EP "Hometown Advantage", following that will be Mixo's LP "TeRayU: True Real Understanding" will be released late summer . We will be on another European Tour soon as well. Everybody from the Stereo Crew is in the Lab constantly, so we have lots of music coming out and more "micro movies" to film.

DEAD OR ALIVE, WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO WORK WITH? 

MIC AUDIO: Jay Electronica KID BOOMBOX: Steve-oGraphy of GLE (New York)

MIXO: Anybody that's down to create a better future for our culture & the people that Love it!

Sean Jones: Well there it is. Their dedication to the music is unique...proven by the thousands of hours put into Lab work, shows and tours. The visions they have look at the past, live in the now and see into the future. Much Love and Thanks Again to MIC AUDIO, KID BOOMBOX and MIXO Detroit's very own, The Stereo Boyz ! We Out!
