Click Link For Website

 

This week we will be focusing on a rapper from Niagara Falls, NY. Jamal Gasol aka Mr. 31, Diadora Don. He is 1/3 of The Big Turks ( Lord Juco, Rome Streetz ) and is putting on for Dirty Water, NY. Jamal blesses the mic with poetic street tales and paints a vivid picture of where he is from & what he has been through. He has already dropped tracks with artists like Benny, Estee Nack & Rome Streetz to name a few. This is one rising artist we recommend you get in tune with sooner than later.

 

 

 

 

1.  ( TM ) What inspired the “Kansas City SmackMan” Ep?

 

(Jamal Gasol )  I use to call myself “Kansas City SmackMan” as a funny nickname during a stage of my life. I was in the streets but shit turnt up at this point for me and that was my lil personal moniker

 

2.  ( TM ) I noticed the “Kansas City SmackMan EP” was posted as 1 song. Was that intentional to make sure the listeners hear the full project in its entirety?

 

( Jamal Gasol )   I did it a few times on SoundCloud but knowing you don’t really get any money for the streams unless you sign up for all that extra shit I put it on all streaming platforms too. It’s already a free download but fuck it let’s make it available in all ways too so that’s how that came about.

 

3. ( TM ) Being that your a PIFF head what’s your Top 3 favorite flavors?

 

( Jamal Gasol )  Papaya Cheese, GrandDaddy Purple, and Sour Diesel

 

4. ( TM )  Right now it seems like upstate New York is running rap like never before. What makes it harder for artists to get some notoriety upstate?

 

( Jamal Gasol ) We ain’t never have an outlet for the music up here. In my city the way out for anybody with examples of success was in sports. I had a passion for sports too but always wanted to do music. I was determined to make it happen and I’m glad I’m in the loop as I deserve to be.

 

5. ( TM ) How did the Big Turks come together?

 

(Jamal Gasol )  Jordan Commandeur reached out to me about doing a collaboration project with 2 other artists basically on a slaughterhouse/ wu-tang connection. With it being Rome Streetz and Lord Juco who I was cool with before the offer I didn’t hesitate to work wit my niggas. Jordan looked out for me a lot last year so I look at it as another he presented to me to further my career and I salute him for that 💪🏾💪🏾

 

6. ( TM ) For the people not familiar tell us about Niagara Falls, NY & what it was like growing up?

 

( Jamal Gasol )   It’s like any other small city but a big attraction. People from all over the world come see Niagara Falls so we use to the foreigners and all that. But as far as living here it’s the hood. I stay 20 minutes away but I’m always in town. I got all my friends and family there but it’s the hood. Gangs, drugs, violence. People I went to high school with didn’t make it to 12th grade they went upstate taking risks and poor decisions. Everybody don’t wanna work in a plant or be a nurse and I respect that.

 

7. ( TM )  Would you say it’s easier to market yourself now as an indie artist compared to the mid to late 90s?

 

( Jamal Gasol )  Way easier lol

 

8. ( TM ) Give up the goods 2K18 was one of the first songs I heard. You rapped “Give up the goods or get sprayed thinking of ways on how to get me & my niggas paid we don’t got time to be afraid real music for real niggas who grind everyday” Do you think you & Rome did that classic Mobb best justice ?

 

( Jamal Gasol )   I feel like we gave it all the justice it was due. I heard the beat from Camo Monk and said I gotta have this one. Rome is ill on the mic I knew he could deliver I ain’t have to worry about shit cause I knew I was gonna have my shit ready for this one and the feedback was as expected.

 

9. ( TM ) You rap about real life situations a lot in your music. Do the bars come to mind when you record more naturally because of that ?

 

( Jamal Gasol )   Naturally because of that. I don’t gotta think about some shit I didn’t or don’t do that’s like adding more on lies I only like to rap about what I know and what I been through or the niggas around me. A lot of these rappers be fronting and fraudulent. My niggas use to be tellin me to rewrite verses all the time cause I was saying to much with how they using raps in court now.

 

10. ( TM )  Being that you are that “New Nigga Now” what do you need to keep doing to stay consistent ?

 

( Jamal Gasol )   Stay on my Deen and be humble. I’m learning let good work marinate saturation ain’t necessary at this point I gave enough music in the last 2 years to show why I belong. But trust me I still got songs in the ready to go at any time.

This is another mix with a wider ranger of artists and some of our favorite songs that most people probably never heard like “Won’t Change” by No Juice Q & Almost Up by Foggy Bucks. The stand out song on this playlist in my opinion is “1994” by Black Dre. This tape overall has a lot of dope songs & artists on the grind delivering some good music. Please like enjoy & share.
