I recently caught up with underground icon and battle rap legend Megabusive of San Jose, California for a quick question and answer session.  He speaks about his HipHop beginnings, five favorite albums, and we end it with a future thought.


1. Which HipHop element did you first gravitate to?  –  “First element I gravitated toward was break dancing, but everything else was soon to follow.”

2. Who were some of your artistic influences?  –  “Early artistic influences were so many. I don’t want to leave anyone out. The Fresh Prince definitely had a profound effect on me. My best friend showed me “Rock the House” before I’d ever even heard of him and Jeff. I think I was 8 or so. Around ’87.”


3. Which of your songs is most autobiographical?  –  “That’s a tough one. I’d have to say     “School Days” off my 365 project because I pretty much just ran down an average day from   when I was in high school.”

4.  Name five of your favorite albums?  –
    LL COOL J – Bigger and Deffer
    El-P – Fantastic Damage
    Nas – Illmatic
    Aceyalone – All Balls Don’t Bounce
    Wu-Tang Clan – Enter the 36 Chambers

5.  What would your future self tell you today?  –  “Today, my future self would tell me to relax and take it easy.”

Be sure to check previous tracks under the Computer Chip moniker and Fuc*ing Mutants with fellow underground legend Dave Dub.  Currently Megabusive is active with Gel Roc as part of Exalt the Anti and produced tracks “Gumbo” and “Wet Em Up” for Project Blowed pioneer Aceyalone on the critically acclaimed Ice Water release.
