Or else we'll broker beats or sell verses for each other and split the money. After doing a handful of shows with McNastee [with Intrinzik in attendance for a couple], he expressed interest in releasing my mix tape, Pick Up the Slack Vol.
People here just don't want or aren't ready to buy tickets to hip-hop shows and CDs from up-and-coming artists. So the situation at Intrinz INK is really good for me, since a number of the sales come from the Internet and people in other markets who are willing to buy underground music and come see underground hip-hop shows.
Intrinzik set up Shep in a condo his previous renters trashed, and Shep is doing home improvement work on the place while recording what could be a rap first — a been-there-done-that-buy-me-a-beer pimp.
It's probably the raddest thing I've ever been involved with. We may have to wait a while, since Intrinzik is true to every word he spits, even in jest, and he's unique in his knack for lowering expectations, too, with claims like "You're gonna hate this song," "My verses need work, they're the worst on the street," and "This song is number zero, it's off the charts.
And in the process, delivers a great record? Kevin Cox Intrinzik, the sensible mini-mogul. I'm gonna find my way around it," he says. Doing a greatest hits, which doesn't count, was one way. He also plans to release Intrinzik singles every couple of months online, and when he has 74 minutes, he'll design a three-inch album cover and put it up on iTunes as a digital-only album.
Kids going to high school have all got iPods and everything is already moving away from CDs, so why fight it? For a musician who grew up hanging around in record stores, trading in his punk CDs to get the new rap CDs and reversing the process when he missed having the old punk CDs, this particular passing of the torch is a bitter pill to swallow.
But kids in this country don't give a shit about that," he muses before brightening again. So do I want to run three miles and lose 10 pounds, or do I want to walk a mile and lose eight pounds? The album is his most epic release to date and features the late Proof of D12, Jason Cruz of Strung Out, Big B and many other national acts Intrinzik has crossed paths with.
As Businessman, Intrinzik has created one of the most lucritive franchises in the genre, Underground Hustlin. This collection of business includes the UGH mixtape series that has spawned over 20 releases in less than 2 years and has featured guest artist and hosts such as porn legend Ron Jeremy, Tech N9ne, Twiztid, Bone Thugs and many more. UGH offers up-and-coming underground artist the chance to feature their music along side household names for a fee in return for hard copies to distribute.
The series has replicted itself 60, times by pressing 3, units per volume. Along with UGH, Intrinzik heads the artist services umbrella that offers CD replication, beat produciton, graphic design, marketing, audio engineering and more. In just 6 short years in the game, Intrinzik has achieved more than most rap artists have in their entire careers.
INT is always taking his music to the next level and his business to the next opportunity in an ever changing industry landscape. The beats are simple yet effective, a lot of emcees rely too much on beats nowadays to try and disguise the fact that their lyrics are lacking. As far as guest appearances go, My Favorite Album packs a lot of star power.
Those four songs in a row really highlighted, and took it to another level for me personally. Both rappers have great chemistry together, and the saddest part is we wont ever get a chance to hear them work together again. Either way it was definitely the right thing to do, and earned Intrinzik my respect, as a person rather than just an artist. The Bottom Line: Fans of Fallguy should enjoy this album, as it shows a different side of Intrinzik, but also includes a few tracks from this breakthrough band.
In five short years, he's gone from a hardcore punk drummer to a novice rap-rocker in a ski mask to an accomplished MC who can hold his own alongside such heavyweights as Cappadonna, the Phunk Junkeez, and the late Proof of D12, who recorded two appearances on Intrinzik's album just weeks before his murder.
He's also become an underground rap mogul with his Intrinz INK record label. When the smoke clears, both will have probably sold somewhere in the 8, to 10, range, but one will be considered a dismal flop while the other will be deemed an underground success. And while Intrinzik is too smart to get caught making dumb-ass K-Fed claims like "The world is mine," he may already have a part of the world in his back pocket. That's right. Intrinzik's big in Japan. Although he may not have name recognition with your average Tokyoite, Intrinzik's got a serious distribution deal there with RB Records, a sizable rap-rock label.
Having already sold vast amounts of CDs by Intrinzik's old rap-rock group Fallguy, and Separated at Birth his horrorcore side project , RB is now giving the Intrinzik brand name a push.
While rap-rock is considered old hat worn backward in the U. A lot of the local bands there are in that Limp Bizkit mode. So it works out great for me. But the U. I'll wear leggings and a sweatshirt to a workout class, but I'll change out of it as soon as physically possible. Sports bras were only meant for workouts — never to be paired with biker shorts, denim jacket, and brunch.
