Dirty South legend, New Orleans hip hop icon and former No Limit Soldier Fiend aka International Jones pulled up to the “85 South Show” trap. Fiend, along with ATL Top 20, came through to kick it and drop priceless gems with Karlous Miller and Clayton English.
Mr. Whomp Whomp himself tells the story of how he got started in the rap game as a young kid and signing with his first label Big Boy Records. Fast forward from those days, the recording artist also talks about working with various artists and labels over the years. He tells the story of how he was introduced to No Limit Records by The Mother of Southern Gangsta Rap herself, Mia X. You’re definitely not going to want to miss that story.
For those unfamiliar with the empire, Fiend gives a crash course of No Limit and some of the things he learned as an artist while he was signed to the label. He even shares what it was like working with artists he looked up to such as Snoop Dogg and Master P.
With 20+ years in the game, OG Fiend drops advice for up-and-coming artists on learning the business side of the music game and staying true to oneself. The guys dissect some of his interesting outfit choices for his album covers in the ‘90s and ‘00s while giving him his flowers. ATL Top 20 chimes in from time to time with his views on the current state of the world.
Karlous talks about driving a stick shift in Germany and his unhealthy health teacher. He also introduces us to Marvin Luther King and the Touch and Ride policy. Fiend drops investment gems on buying and cultivating land. The guys end this episode with the creation of a new color: hash brown.
