Styles P released his fourth studio album Master Of Ceremonies and he stopped by The Breakfast Club to discuss the new project, the art of MC’n, and the various business ventures he’s working on.
DJ Envy asked him about hating everybody and being a mad rapper. “Dudes suck,” Styles says. “I don’t really hate everybody. I be outside with the real. When you in the industry and you deal with people that’s outside, like blue collar people outside, it gets difficult sometimes. It’s a thin line, because to real people outside, realness is real all day. In the industry its like a bunch of fake smiles, lying, party rapping, we gon get up, we gon do this just cause you see the person. I ain’t in to all that.”
P talks about his endeavors outside of music with the D-Block car wash, Juice Bar, and his novel. He’s also working on his next book. He said their’s a lot of good young mc’s right now such as J. Cole, Vado, Meek Mill, Kendrick Lamar, and Fred The Godson.
“I’m a bias person when it comes to music,” Styles says. “But then on the other hand, I’m a business man. For me, it’s good to see young men and women, minorities, non-minorities making money off of something they love. So on the other hand, I be like ‘thats cool.’ The only thing about hip hop that I would say bothers me is the non-cultural part. That’s why I dont really bump with everybody. I’m into culture.. I love money, I love clothes, I love all that stuff that comes with it. But we got to be able to talk about something in real life of substance at some point of the day or it ain’t gonna be cool for me.”
Envy talks about The LOX always being cool and coming through. He talks about booking studio time to record a track for his album with Styles. P broke his hand earlier that day, but still went to the studio to lay his verse.
Styles discusses The LOX album saying they have a couple offers from major lables. Charlamagne Tha God asked him about spazzing out on a radio host. P said he didn’t know them, they were acting funny playing games and he didn’t like the environment.
Angela Yee asked Styles about turning his novel Invincible into a movie. Lastly, P gives an in-depth explanation as to why he owns a juice bar and the importance of it in the community.
