Will Lean: Screwed Up Click Alive And Well; He And Flip "Cool"
The hip-hop world is a less than sensible place -lots of times, you're even required to clarify when bad means bad and when bad means good- so once a week we're going to get with a rapper and ask them to explain things. Have something you always wanted to ask a rapper? Email it to email@example.com.
This Week's Subject(s): Working with one's wife; the state of the SUC; anti-drug rappers
Ask A Rapper: First up, we suppose you should let everyone know where you've been lately. It's been a while.
Will Lean: I been busy with my fam, just got married and had a newborn, but at the same time still working on my music.
AAR: This is the most pressing question we have: What's it like working with your wife? We mean, let's say she churns out a verse or something that stinks pretty terrible. How do you handle that? One time our wife made arroz con pollo, but when we ate it we told her it tasted like arroz con caca. She didn't cook for, like, at least ten days.
WL: We criticize each other because I wouldn't let her put music out that would be just awful, and vice versa. But our relationship as artists, we both are supportive and honest with each other about our music.
AAR: We put the word out that we were interviewing you and received a few emails from readers with the same question: Where'd the SUC go? It's like, okay, we're all aware of the role that death played in the unraveling of the SUC, but what about the rest of the guys? There are still a few really talented rappers in it. Will the SUC ever rise back to power?
WL: We haven't went nowhere. We all have families to take care of. I just threw a DJ Screw 10-year anniversary tribute last Thursday, November 18, to honor and show respect to our mentor DJ Screw. With that being said, SUC is still here as the biggest movement out of H-Town. SUC 4 LIFE!!
