For those who haven’t been paying attention, Peter Rosenberg’s Noisemakers interview series features the Hot 97 morning DJ running a live Q&A session with Hip-Hop royalty, complete with a DJ and a studio audience. In the past, he’s chopped it up with Primo, ?uestlove, Pete Rock, Phonte & 9th Wonder, Raekwon, Q-Tip and Diddy, among others. Last year at SXSW he sat down with Bun B, and it went so well that he’s coming back this year with one Nasir Jones as his guest. “Nas’ importance in hip hop goes without saying. I have had the honor of interviewing some legends for Noisemakers, but in Nas you’re getting to hear from someone on hip hop’s Mt. Rushmore,” Rosernberg shared. “He is one of the all time greats who has stood the test time–still relevant today while never caving to industry trends”
The chat will be a part of a Def Jam event featuring K.R.I.T., Asher Roth and others, and will include yours truly on the turntables.
