Blaq Poet – Interview Pt. 2 (At Harper’s Ferry – Allston, MA – 7/9/09)
Part 2 of 2: A legend from New York’s infamous Queensbridge housing projects, Blaq Poet first gained notoriety back in 1987 during the Bridge wars when he attacked KRS-One on the song “Beat You Down.” This was the first of a career riddled with taking shots at made rappers including T La Rock, Kool Moe Dee, Melle Mel, LL Cool J, Rakim and the Ultramagnetic MC’s the following year on “All Hell’s Breaking Loose.” That track cemented Blaq Poet’s legacy as hip-hop’s villain long before 50 Cent went at industry greats on “How To Rob.” Blaq Po speaks on who he would aim at with a diss track in 2009 along with what it was like recording at Marley Marls’ original house of hits on 12th Street in Queensbridge. Be sure to check out Blaq Poet’s new album “Tha Blaqprint” produced by DJ Premier & available at UGHH.com.
