Transcript MufaMUuG Are you from ATX [Austin]? Yes sir born and raised. What record label are you on right now? Right now I'm with Top Dollar/Mash Entertainment and Mash Entertainment is my own thing that I have going right now. Name off the artists on Top Dollar records how did y'all hook up? Me, J-Kapone, Bossaholic, Lil Rick, DJ Bam, and Carlos. I've been knowing Los forever. We go back to when he first had that record shop selling CD's off of 1st Street. ■ Who came up with the "What It Dew" shirts and the slogan? I That boy Los did that. We was sitting around chillin' and talking about it, then next thing you know he was printing up What It Dew shirts. >oes the What It Dew Family have anything to do with your click? No. Los made up the shirt and came up with that logo and the slogan and then everybody just took off and ran with it. Now you got the What It Dew Family and the What It Dew Club now. They did a What It Dew cd with Chamillionaire and then everybody started poppin up with the What It Dew. So how did you hook up with Trae and ESG to do some songs? Well Los hooked us up with Trae and I ran into ESG on 6th Street and I holla'd at him. I was like man, I'm going to call him and see what he's talking about. I called and talk to him and he laced me up and I told him let me send you the track and he said lets do it. How do you feel people look at Austin now as in musically, you think that people know its our time to shine? They are starting to pay attention, but in reality we gotta to pay attention to us. A lot of these cats around here are dividing, when we really just need to come together because that's the only way we are going to get it. Have you performed at any shows? Yea we opened up for Trae, we did that Heatwave last year, we opened up for DSR in Dallas and we have a show coming up in San Antonio. We are trying to do a lot of things, but I have ^g-^a been mostly promoting in the streets. What kind of support do you get from people? I get a lot of love in San Antonio and Houston and they feel us in Austin, but this is our city, so it's not going to be the same response as in other cities. They know us and around here a nigga will come up to me and say Mike you got that cd because I will bang it. But I can go down to San Antonio and sell them a cd for 15 bucks. They don't know who I am and they want to check it out. From my stand point I really think it's us as artists not really putting ourselves out there and when we do, we divide ourselves by not working together. That's just my personal opinion. What's the name of the new album and what makes this album different from your previous albums? It's called "The Champ", my previous albums I put out there just to see what it dew. But this album here, I went through a lot of stuff and the reason I call it "The Champ" is because I feel like everyday is a fight for life. Regardless, if you wake up or not you're going to go through something sooner or later, so I feel like I'm not going to let life knock me down. I'm going to stand in the ring and do what I need to do and that's how I came up with "The Champ". My album is going to be live. I got some tracks on there with Trae, ESG, we got a track we just did with Tumzilla [from DSR] and hopefully we get this track together with Jamie Foxx, then we will be good. What kind of deal are you discussing with Jamie Foxx? Well we are just trying to get him to sing a hook on a beat my ponta Curtbeatz aka The Secret Weapon is suppose to be making that's where I get all my tracks from so holla at the boy for some tracks. He was like just send me the track I will check it out and see what's what. How did you hook up with Jamie? My manager Oscar got in touch with his manager and they chopped it up or whatever and he was telling him I got a local artist and Jamie's manager listened to some of the music and he showed Jamie and we all got together on a phone conference. He said just send the track and the hook and we'll see what we can do with it. What do you think its going to take for Austin artists to come up? Unity. I'm telling you we have to unite like I said, If I got something I can help somebody out with and they got something they can help me out with, that kills a lot of stuff right there. That helps the whole city because once somebody makes it then they [record labels] will come back to the city looking for more talent. Look at Houston, they went from Screwed Up Click and Swisha House to just H-town. Do you have any shout outs? Check me out at Go to www.myspace.com/themixtapechamp. Shout out to Ms.Money for showing me a lot of love, my DJ Manyall, my boy Loud Mouth, my manager Big Oscar, my street team, my whole Mash Entertainment label, my nigga Jay Gee and K-l, my nigga Fif Letta, Pat McGurn and Street Wize Magazine because y'all niggaz hold it down for the local artists trying to get somewhere, because you know a lot of people don't even show support like that.
