Marisa Mendez x Royce Da 5’9 for HipHopDX’s ‘Hack3d’

I love doing interviews because I get to pick the brains of people who made their passions into their careers. And I love highlighting all the special moments along the way – like how my brotato chip Mike Zombie ended up on Eminem’s album all through the power of social media and good people! And what a moment for teen me…I had an itty bitty connection to an Eminem moment! WHUT!!!!!

Also, I was SO nervous to talk to Royce because I think he’s absolutely brilliant and this convo ended up SO amazing. Elsewhere in the hour-long chat his dad surprises him and Joell Ortiz!

Marisa Mendez x Jim Jones for HipHopDX’s ‘Hack3d’

I host a new show for HipHopDX called Hack3d! Our debut episode features the legendary Jim Jones and those that know me know this was truly a dream come true!!!! I got to talk all things Dip Set! So freaking grateful man!

The show is called Hack3d because we surprise the guests with people from their lives that can help tell more of their story, and so be on the lookout for appearances from Jim‘s cousin Dave as well as music industry exec Tuma Basa!
