Welcome, welcome, welcome - and since this is a very special episode indeed, go ‘head - have another welcome - to the great and grand Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! Episode 177 right here, hot and fresh out the kitchen and ready for your immediate devouring… Truly this episode is a long awaited one, hinted at for a good while… Well, paths have aligned, the gawds have shaken hands and good fortune has stood in the DPP path as we welcome Jeannie Grigio aka Jean Greasy aka JEAN GRAE!
Pip warns at the start that this may be something of a ‘love-in’ and two people sitting there agreeing with each other, which - sure - may be somewhat true… But what could be better than that? In a time where articles and blogs scramble for your attention with negative and shock headlines, let’s take some time to indulge in a straight up lovely, fully varied and positive chat with two very like minded people, who drop gems and jewels like their moth-eaten swagbags got caught on a nail along the way. As a fan, Pip exercises terrific restraint and does not fan-out at all - it’s perfect, as Jean delivers all manner of nuggets pertaining to her illustrious career as rapper, beatmaker/DJ, singer, writer, composer, actor… Too many jumping off points to start from, but somehow the whirlwind of awesomeness is contained in this humble podcast, and you’ll hear about all of it including internet nut-jobs, theoretical fans, how to manipulate a crowd and leave “blood on the stage”, her early days (you may remember her as ‘What What’, or her old crew Natural Resource), her attitude to today’s hip hop scene and how her limits outside of it are endless, the New York state of mind and the diversity within, super powers, dark sides, and TONS more… Prepare to offer this chat a standing ovation at the end, it’s golden!
