Melly’s Thoughts

We get a bit of background on Dot Rich and what he is all about. Then we get right into the review. Josiah breaks it down by showing us a clip and then he talks about the album in general. Josiah tells us who the album is and isn’t for then breaks down his rating system.

Per Josiah: Content gets a thoughtful rating, delivery gets amazing ratings, production and sound quality ratings are beat selection is great but vocal mixing had some room for improvement. Arrangement also gets a good rating as well as the skits included. Cover art gets a great job. Josiah also names his favorite songs but you have to watch to find out what they are.

While this is a general synopsis, Josiah does a good job of going into his ratings in depth. He also discusses his top four songs from the album and why. Overall, Josiah would not revisit the album as a whole but would revisit for his favorite songs.

Thoughts on the Interview

Sticking with the layout form last episode, Josiah does a great intro about C3 who is a returning artist. We previously met him in another interview and get to catch up with him. we get a clip of him “March Madness.”

We get another brief introduction to C3 the Prince and now six months later, he has been just working and focusing on the music. He recently dropped a new video for his song “Irrelevant” and continues to work on other videos. We discuss his recent shows and how long he has been performing in Kenosha.

Learn about C3’s pre-show preparations and how you have to stay humble and keep working on your craft before a show. Preparation is the key to success and you should not miss a sound check. The tow keys to performing according to C3. We also get to watch a clip of his recent performance.

Josiah asks C3 how he feels about women in hip hop and how they are dominating. He gives women the respect and flowers they deserve. They both discuss various hip hop queens doing their thing. Women in hip hop should not be overlooked, just saying.

Since it’s an update interview, it was much more casual and just felt like two friends chopping it up. It was fun to get some updates on C3 and general talk about the state of hip hop. Look out for more music videos from C3 coming soon. Stay until the end for never before seen footage….

Thoughts on the Interview

I’m loving the new intro setup, as time goes on, Josiah continues to change and adjust how he does these interviews to find the best method. During the interview, we do not see much of Josiah.

Armon has been wring music for about ten years and describes how his whole family is musically inclined. His music is definitely inspired by real events and he has bene described as an affirmation rapper. What he raps about comes to fruition. Words are powerful and what we say comes to us.

He talks about his music and EPs and we even get to see a live performance of “Clarity”. The song goes hard, I was tapping my feet and bobbing my head and even as a live performance, it was clean. Getting back to the interview we hear his top five local and industry artist, with Biggie as number one.

Find out what sets Armon Wilkes apart from the rest, directly from his mouth. What separates you as an artists or creative compared to everyone else. He also leaves us with some sound advice that he would give his younger self and what drives him to keep doing what he does with his gift. He drops several gems so make sure you stay until the end for some essential advice.
