Guerilla Black Quotes
"I wanted to help rebuild the West Coast and be one of the first from the West to make universal music.."
"Say What." I dedicated that song to the ladies; I wanted to take it back to that point of rapping in the old-school style, but as well with having an old-school beat, with the feel-good thing.
My mother, I remember her playing the organ, playing the piano, directing the choir, choir rehearsals, stuff like that. My stepfather used to have so many old records: Nat King Cole, Bobby Womack, the O Jays, Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes, so many different records. And at that time, hip-hop was really coming into a big force, so (he also had) LL Cool J, DMC, all of these people as well. So with that coming about, I started playing trumpet and trombone, I knew how to play all of these instruments, I was taught in school. Then I wanted to be a DJ, had turntables and stuff like that. I think I was maybe 14 or 15 when I decided I like rapping, so I started freestyling and felt that I was pretty good at it. That's when I decided, "I really want to do this."
