Interview with Posta Boy

What’s been happening with you since you came back from your illness?

Just been grinding man. Recording my album. With my 2 producers we just been shopping to get a new situation.

How have you changed as a result of your health issues?

Yeah, definitely. I look at things in a different light now. Everything counts, you know? I played away.

Do you see yourself more of an underground act or are you looking to enter more of the mainstream?

I’m a mainstream guy. When I was on 106 & Park I was mainstream, you know? I maid Freestyle Friday what it is today. I’m definitely mainstream.

You became known for your work on 106 and Park. What are your thoughts on the current state of the program?

I think 106 & Park they switched a few things up and every now and then change is good. I can’t knock what they doing. I just feel good I was a part of setting their standards for Freestyle Friday. It’s modern, it’s cool. I don’t really get a chance to catch the show as much as I would like to but it’s cool.

Your video off of your last album is similar to Through the Wire. Do you feel a connection to Kanye’s situation after the accident?

You know its always good to tell a story, but when you got a picture the story just makes it that much better. My situation unique. I wanted to show people that yes I was really in a hospital laid up. Yes, I almost didn’t make it, know I’m saying? I had to show them that. It’s a big deal to me and my family and my fans and everyone who love me.

You are performing with NY’s favorites, Jae Millz and Raekwon. What are your thoughts on NY music now?

I think New York is always New York in my heart. You know they say now its Down South, but everybody gotta get their turn. Except New York is always gonna be New York. It started here and there’s a lot of artists here that make good music. So I think we in good shape. I don’t really panic too much when I hear talking if we got it or not. In my heart New York always got it.

Do you have a new album in the works?

It’s called Live From the ER. It’s basically about my hospital experiences and its about my life, from A to Z. the things I wanted to do before 106, when I was at 106 and after 106. The album tells it all like I’m in a hospital, know I’m saying? So its fool of singles. The whole album.

Is there anything you’d like to add?

Stay up. To everyone who supported me through everything I did, thanks very much. The team is in the building, Mr. 106! Stay tuned. And before I sign off I wanna shout out P. Reala. We doing our thing, look out for his mixtape.
