UTW-Who are you?
Jaff-The name’s Jaff and I’m an emcee from Toronto
Rez Raida-I’m Rez Raida aka Smooth Ope-Raida aka Genius Shuttlesworth aka Angry Aviator aka Worth The Price Of Admission
UTW-What is your passion?
Jaff-I love music, I love listening to it, making it, how it brings everyone together. I love that feeling you get when you’re bumping a track and just vibing, it’s like nobody can tell you nothing! But more specifically I love hip hop, the culture and the art form. I’d say I’m most passionate about my contributions to Hip Hop and making sure good music always stays relevant.
Rez Raida-My passion is entertaining the masses with the hip hop artform. More particularly, MCing
UTW-What’s your biggest accomplishment to date?
Jaff-My biggest accomplishment so far has been completing my first album “About Time”. Which just dropped today, 11/11/11. I feel like this project was 25 years in the making, and to finally have it done it’s a great feeling. I got to work with so many talented people in the process, most being from my camp and the friends and family I surround myself with…for real it’s been a labour of love, and it’s only just the beginning
Rez Raida-My biggest accomplishment to date is releasing ‘Genius Shuttlesworth’. I have done 4 projects in my career but this is my first all original instrumentation out of those four.
UTW- Perseverance is key in proving to yourself AND any detractors out there. We tell em’ “You thought wrong” what else would you like to say to any doubters right now?
Jaff– As far as the sceptics go…I don’t really pay them any mind. You’re never going to be able to please everyone nor am I trying to. In one of my tracks I say “I’m not asking for all of you to love me/ but if you do I’ll give you nothing but me, trust me!” And that’s my philosophy. I’d tell them if you’re down with me, hop on now while you still can, if not see ya later…cause regardless I’ma keep it moving!
Rez Raida-I acknowleadge and have love for any of the haters. Thanks you for your continuous support.LOL. Their are the ones who speak your name most, so I must thank them for the free promostion.
