Do You See What I See
Indeux Shabazz: I get why people want an increase and I'm not saying that they do deserve what they feel they deserve, I'm I'm saying is its a trap that's played from a different angle. We look at things from a feed me Seymour type of mentally, we look for someone to give us the head start instead of going to get it. Rappin' Mitch: I get cost of living, completely understand that... After moving to Atlanta one of the early jobs I had was a driver, and I did that for 7 years. My first driving job I was making $13 per hour, I stayed there for 2 years and before I left I was making $15 per hour. When I left and went to another driver job they started me off at $16 per hour but they based on that my experience. My point is there has to be levels, you can't just come in at a certain rate with no experience [Cont...]

The Great Divide
Indeux Shabazz: I don't want people to feel like I'm coming at people's head based on where they're at, because I don't care about that - I care about where you're going because you're a reflection of me at all times. When we win, we won, we you lose it's like damn we're losing. When Black Panther came out is like "Yes" it's a win for the culture, but individually, within the culture it's so divided.

Let Me Tell You About Life
Indeux Shabazz speaking on how the best way to learn is from the mistakes of others: The last thing you want to do is to throw your whole childhood away or young adulthood away just to get out here and be like they told me so because you ain't going to get that time back. It's really not the years, it's just the time wasted doing dumb shit. You look back at it like I could've really been way up - or pass where I am right now and I'm just getting started at 40.

School Or No School
Indeux Shabazz: This is about understanding the whole business, when think about rapping you think about grabbing the mic, getting in front of people and saying "Yo, check" but when you understand the business it's other avenues.Rappin' Mitch: But you didn't get into it for the business you got into it for the love and for the passion. If I came into it for the love and for the passion then that means that you want to grab the mic [Cont...]

Rappin' Mitch and Indeux Shabazz debate whether or not children will slow down you momentum: Especially for a female, If you were to have a child back when we were coming up, that's the end of your career. I remember the talk back when Cardi was pregnant, she had the biggest record of her career, she was moving, she just had the tour with Bruno Mars, or at least it was scheduled and then it was like she's pregnant. Indeux: She was done. Rappin' Mitch: There were so many industry insiders like yo she's done.Indeux: So how do you feel about City Girls... How many more years? [Cont...]

No Ceilings Part 2
Rappin' Mitch speaks breaks down his definition of a culture vulture: [Someone] is only a culture vulture if he never had any kind of participation in this culture at all, and he jumped into it, not knowing anything about this culture and he is hyping up beefs, or hyping up anything in a negative way to gain monetary value off of it. Personally Lil' Wayne is a bigger culture at this day and time, with his present project, than Vlad. Indeux Shabazz follows up: It's about having no clue about what you're getting involved in, getting involved in it and then making a killing off of it. So there are a lot of people in the industry that are culture vultures that are not black and brown people, however their are a lot of black and brown people too...

Rappin' Mitch speaking how the era can affect the perspective: I might’ve been 13 maybe 14 years old and Jay-Z was the hottest rapper on the planet at this time. And I had a nigga debate me that Kool Moe Dee was lyrically better than Jay! Jigga! You know what I’m saying. I don’t want to get into these debates because it is always going to come back to the era. It’s always going to come back to what era you’re from. If you’re from the 80s and that’s when you listened to music and you were engulfed in that era, you were engulfed in the fashion, in the slang.. the films.. you’re automatically going to say any and everybody from the 80s - Those were those guys, they were legend.

Rappin' Mitch speaks on his direct issues with Lil' Wayne's No Ceiling 3: My issue with Wayne is this stop trying to get political bro, like stop trying to do it. I seen the album cover and I immediately said I'm not about to fuck with this shit because for me, the black lives matter movement and the the things that we go through as black people, as a culture, it means a lot to me. And I don't think you should play with that. You remember how like people took Ma$e when he came back, like after he pushed like the God shit, and then he came back into rap after all that he said about it, and people were like "Yo you're trying to hustle religion" I feel like Wayne is doing the same thing with this because we know where he stands when it comes to black issues.

Indeux Shabazz breaks down the difference between coaching and playing: It's kind of hard to say, because some people again are good coaches and never played the game, But their great coaches, you know what I'm saying? And then some people are great players but can't coach. So they have been in the game that could tell you how to score 30, 35 every night. But then they were just scoring points. They can't tell you how to read the other defense. They can't tell you how to run the offense correctly.

[00:01:23] Couldn't it be like point one. Point "O" one. [00:01:23] I don't know man, you know, technology dealing with technology when your an old nigga. [00:01:46] Speak for yourself. My brother, [00:01:48] I'm the one who fixed it. [laughs] if we want to be technical nigga. [00:01:55] We had and "Aha" moment at the same time, and you were like no wait, I got it, trust me I got it. [laughs] [00:02:04] Yo, man, yo, man. I won't be 100 with you, man. I'm over 100 with the listeners. We spent 40 minutes yesterday, yesterday trying to you know, we went through the whole preparation and telling the listeners who we were and just, you know, just going through all this. I'm not doing that again. I'm not doing it - You listen to us long enough, you'll figure it out. [00:02:34] Right - I'm the calm one, this is the angry negro over here. [00:02:41] I mean, we we have a difference of opinion on some things, but on most things, I like to feel like we have many commonalities when it comes to certain shit. You know, I'm saying especially music and just kind way things the way things are moving, you know what I mean, in the city being from Charlotte. Even when you just look at it from an independent level, you know what I'm saying? No, this podcast isn't just about music, but that is the one thing that we are both extremely passionate about, because it's definitely been a key part of our lives for a very long time. [00:03:32] I'm glad you're glad it started there. This is Induce, by the way, Mr. Induce Shabazz, welcome to Joey and The Cap Machine. You know this dude on Carolina Grinder be posting a lot of different material just by industry stuff.... [cont.]
