Your first solo record PRECEDENS was released just days before Christmas and it contains songs you written in past 10 years. When did you decided that it was the right time to put them together and release?
Look, it was released last year, because I didn’t have any priority joint projects, because as you know, I prefer teamwork, so I finally gave a chance to my ego.
The album has been out for over two months, are you satisfied with it, or are there some things you would do differently looking back?
Haha, there are always some things, but overall, I am really satisfied, especially with the positive feedback from people. If I had to pick one specific thing I am happy with, it would probably be that there are no disses or curse words.
Each song has a different producer, lyrics were being written continually during last 10 years. Were you afraid that the album would not be unified - or too diverse? Was there an effort to unify the sound of the whole album?
I promised the people that different Czechoslovak producer would produce each track, so the diversity was guaranteed, and my job was to secure the unity. To be honest, I am really happy with the result, it doesn’t sound like one big song and my mum is also satisfied for the first time. I had to go a bit more mainstream, because many different people from different social environment were waiting for it for the album time.
It seems like there is a certain storyline that joins the songs together. Did you set the album tracklist so they would tell the complete story?
Yes, it was a concept from the start. I wanted to map the typical hip-hop story about rebellion, goodwill and hopefully a happy homecoming.
