With “STILL”, well, STILL in rotation. Last years stellar album had hardly any time to age when news broke that a brand new Clear Soul Forces album was once again on its way. The Detroit based hip-hop super group has cemented their status across a storied catalog worthy of deep listening. So when “Forceswithyou” was announced, incredible album artwork and all, needless to say many fans were hyped.

However, that anticipation for new music from Clear Soul Forces was soon bittersweet. The group collectively announced that they would be going their separate ways and that “Forceswithyou” would be their final album as a group. An announcement that took many fans by surprise! However, as they exit, leaving us all with ten more records of their signature sounds, we are left with a respectable departure, & a shed of hope that one day they shall return for more. Not that they need to

Separately, where-ever their paths may lead may they find their greatest success and happiness, let’s be thankful for the music Clear Soul Forces have gifted over the years, and enjoy a fitting 313 day release “Forceswithyou“.

Dame Black Releases “PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS” (Artist Interview)

Uncle P:  You have a serious buzz around the release of your latest release People under the stairs. With a title like that, what was your thought process around this project?

Dame Black: Well thanks to all the people who supported the movement and, the Dame Black brand first they’re one of the main reasons for the big buzz surrounding the project. So The People Under The Stairs is actually one of my favorite movies I had to mention that but, I used to be in the streets trapping and, what not an 90% of my content is street so I looked at the people under the stairs as the clientele. I took the movie and, flipped the perspective into a dealers view. I wanted to still reflect the movie as well so I used the actual movie cover as well and, flipped it to once people hear the EP they’ll definitely understand the similarities and, the references.

Uncle P: So when did you realize you wanted to make something out of that film? After watching it a few times or did the tracks inspire it all?

Dame Black:   I guess it came with the creative process of how I put together projects. The movie was definitely in the back of my mind but, I guess it was after the first song I knew how I wanted to sculpt the Ep. I try to give the fans a full meal to break down art, music, visuals, poetry, streets, all that exist with in this project so in short lol yea the tracks inspired me.

Uncle P:  What was your favorite song and what has the public gravitated to so far? What did you learn from having listening sessions?

Dame Black: I dont really have a favorite to tell you the truth and, there’s a reason. I dont have a favorite out of any music I put out yet…. Only because I know I have alot more greatness in me to achieve musically so I guess im still waiting on a favorite. As far as the listening party I learned alot and, s/o to the muzik shop for hosting the party but, wow it was amazing! I learned good music and, humility will definitely bring alot of great minds together. Thats the biggest thing I learned from that I could go on for days but, I would say thats the most important lesson I learned from the listening party.

 

Uncle P:  What was it like working with one producer for a entire Album? Can you share how it went down
Dame Black:  S/O to Aaron Green hes responsible for every beat on the EP hes an amazing producer which made it easy to put this project together check him out on IG @AGmusic1989. If I can recall im pretty sure it was Ub who tagged me in a IG post to a beat snippet on AG’s page. I heard one beat and, was amazed I loved his sound an feel so I checked out more beats on his page and, was convinced on the spot that I wanted some tracks from him. After I bought at least 3 tracks I was in album mode but, I wanted to bring that old feel of hip hop that I remember back one artist working with one producer feel. Im real big on the essence of hip hop even tho my content is street based I feel thats where hip hop came from anyways… I continued to search his catolog and, I asked him to do a couple special samples for me until I felt I had a complete body of work and, thats how the EP came together.
Uncle P:  How would you describe AG sound?
Dame Black:  AG is almost undescribable he’s so universal as a producer its crazy! Leaving the description up to me tho I would have to say he’s so soulful saying that he plays instruments as well its just a taste of soul its like grandmas cooking. I definitely would have to say his strong point to me is soul music he makes beats you can feel in your soul some of his beats I dont even want to rap to I can just ride and, vibe to them.
Uncle P:  The music scene is like the wild wild west right now, whats been your experience trying to gain exposure in the crowded space of music?
Dame Black:  Thats a good question I would say for me its just easy being me my artisty comes from a truthplace so im just focused on being the best dame. Im not into gimicks or jumping on bandwagons or co-signs and, its alot of that going on alot of artist not being who they really are. I really think that changes the game alot and, makes it hard for true artits like me to break through but, all my recent buzz has comes from all organic work, quality music, and, me being the best dame I can be for my fans and, supporters.
Uncle P:  Who you feeling right now musically? If somone was reading this interview and hadn’t heard a record yet, whos vibe would you say is similar.
Dame Black:   AG is almost undescribable he’s so universal as a producer its crazy! Leaving the description up to me tho I would have to say he’s so soulful saying that he plays instruments as well its just a taste of soul its like grandmas cooking. I definitely would have to say his strong point to me is soul music he makes beats you can feel in your soul some of his beats I dont even want to rap to I can just ride and, vibe to them.
Uncle P: What can we expect from Dame Black over the next year?
Dame Black: More and, more music lol I work hard and, I love putting out quality work for my fans so more music first. Im actually in album mode now working on another project with Sapiano Sounds as we speak. More dope artwork s/o to bryan gower on all my artwork hes the genious behind the Ep cover. Dropping more visuals s/o to mino shot dat on my recent drop the Kevin Garnett video on DetroitRap.com now. Ill definitely continue to keep people intrigued in my artisty with creative roll outs dope promotion s/o to my manager Ub hes a big driving force behind all that and, more. But im just gone keep grinding being humble and, putting out good music I think next year is MINE!!! Respect the scorpion.
Uncle P: You plan on getting out and touring any? How you plan on moving around the Midwest? Who do people contact to do some business with Dame Black?
Dame Black: S/O to my manager Ub again he put a dope concept together called “The pull up plays” and, the concept to that is we pulling up wherever rocking the stage. We get the dates in to the shows and, we give our fans acess thru flyer and, social posting then we pulling up and rocking the stage which is a “Pull up play”. Im definitely looking for bigger stages and, a bigger touring situation to reach more fans with the music but, for now we putting in all organic ground work trying to reach as many live bodies as possible which is a foreign art in todays game internet is the big thing. For anyone looking for verses, show booking, touring opportunities, etc… Contact my manager Ubadah McConner at   Beat6teen@gmail.com. Thanks for the interview I truly appreciate yall at DetroitRap.com s/o to Uncle P for all the help as well 6/21/22 I bring yall a true classic The People Under The Stairs Ep produced by Aaron Green (AG).
