Skratch Bastid and Buck 65 have been working together for years. Hi! welcome to watchmojo.com. I am your host Laila. Today the duo share some of their choice with us. So can one of you first tell me how you guys met and started working together?
Buck 65: I was hosting a radio show in Halifax, just like our college radio show for many years.
Skratch Bastid: When I was in junior high school I listened to his radio show. He used to play some of his music on his show too. One day he was performing at Dio Mio which was the ice cream store that fed about 50 people inside it and he was performing a show there. I want to see him and it's like Wow! This is awesome. I think later we met at a DJ competition. Yeah, which is when we first kind of chilled and hung out.
Laila: So your fan also turned out to be your rival. What struck you about Paul?
Buck 65: You know Paul here has talent that I think absolutely needs and deserves to be recognized on a global scale. So when we first started working on a record together. I think, our ambitions for it started out small to the point where we hadn't even really thought much at all. What we would do with that, I know in a really early discussion we had just like you know maybe we will do a seven inch single and press up 500 copies of it or something -- the record is called situation which is something of a reference to sort of a strange political art organization called Situationist International.
Skratch Bastid: When you listen to record there is like a lot of character descriptions, that's what I think a lot of the songs are pretty much character descriptions.
Buck 65: It's just a fun record about you know perverts in low life.
Laila: I read that your rise to fame wasn't through the most conventional gimmicky way. Any thoughts on this in retrospect?
Skratch Bastid: I would just say that's a tough thing to do.
Buck 65: It is a very difficult thing to do and you know one person could look at the sort of career I have and the kind of records I make and think that you know by my record company signing me do a contract, they were taking an enormous risk. Because it's not the most easily marketable thing and it's not very gimmicky but the fact is, I worked extremely hard for about ten years on my own, working as a independent artist before signing my record deal and I think you can find success faster if you have some sort of gimmick or something really marketable for a label to latch on to, but if you don't it's not impossible, you just have to work very hard.
