P.I.M.B. Interviews Debaser


From Potholes In My Blog;

P.I.M.B.: Talk about the title for the album, Peerless. Where did this come from?

Sapient: The title is def on some braggadocio shit, and that’s not really fueled by our arrogance, more just pointing out the inferiority of everyone else. So much basic music, dumb rappers…they are not our peers. Not all of our music is on this tip, but Debaser is definitely an outlet for that. There’s a time and place for everything, here and now is for Debaser.”

They also do some song breakdowns from the album after the interview, which you can peep in it’s entirety here.

Sandpeople interview with Planet Urban

PlanetUrban has posted up an interview covering topics from battling to the creative process of a 10 member group;

ILLmaculate and TheSaurus are both battle tested emcees, do you guys ever battle or spar amongst each other?

OnlyOne: I have battled IAME and M-OB, also Sape and Illmaculate in a two on two against Al-One and I. We got crushed.”

“Wookieepedia, the online Star Wars encyclopedia, describes Sand People as “a culture of nomadic, primitive sentients… often hostile to local settlers” does that sum you guys up or can you give us a better definition?

IAME: Thats pretty on point.

Gold: What is Star Wars?

Ethic: Someone really created something called Wookieepedia? But, yea, the definition is suitable.”
