I'll save the juicy questions for the radio interview.
It was truly a blessing when I reached out to Wayne Wonder on Twitter asking to interview him. He said yes and told me to reach out to his team, which i did and the rest is history. I was truly excited to interview Wayne because his hit Turn Me On is a classic dance joint in the clubs when the Dj spin reggae music. He was running a little late for the show but it was worth the wait and more. He calls into the show and I'm doing the intro about the show and we get right to it. I love hearing about his back story about his life and his music. His expression was priceless once he learned that he was on a sex talk show. Then he really began to let his hair down and truly ride da choclate wave. Skirttttt, let me pump my brakes and shut up and you guys can listen for yourself and listen and enjoy. Please feel free to follow wayne on all his social media platforms and mos def stream his music.
This was one of best shows. I was very excited to interview Cuban. He has been one my favorite Spanish rappers since the early 2000's. I couldn't wait to get his ass on the line so we could let the games begin. Shout out to Ms. Boss Ladii for setting this interview up. Cuban really got into the swing of things real quick. We talked about everything. He even got in trouble with wifey. Hell yall gotta hear the show for yourselves. I aint gonna nothing else. Hit that play button.
I had to share this video with all of my fans. 50 Tyson came on my show and had a great time. I was shocked when he decided to give me a video shout out. All of my friends are tripping off the video and it was a good look from 50 Tyson. im a big supporter of his work and I give him big props. Enjoy the video and make sure you follow @50TysinOfficial on Twitter. Make sure you subscribe to his Youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/Official50tyson

Choclate City Radio presents 50 Tyson
I knew this interview was going to be special, I just didn’t know how special. I decided to have 50 Tyson on the show. I have been following him for a while and I reached out to him after he followed me on Twitter. So I asked him to ride da chocolate wave. We exchanged information and I emailed him what I needed from him for the show. We agreed on a date and took it from there. I ran my promo for the show and away we go.
I wasn’t sure how I was going to go about interviewing but I didn’t want to change up the show and treat him differently. So I toned it down just a little bit. He was suppose to call in at 10pm est but he was late as fuck lol. He called in at 11:27pm and the show stops streaming live at 11:30pm. I have so many different people calling in to speak to him. But once we got him on the air, shit started getting interesting. He introduced himself to listeners and they went in for him being late. So I muted my listeners. I proceeded to ask him my normal questions from what’s the freakiest thing you have ever done to do you like getting your dick sucked. We talked about his music career and his bedroom life. Dude gets it in everyday according to him. I can actually say I handled the interview very well. Now once the interview was over, then shit went left quick thanks to my crazy ass listener Moe from Brooklyn. I played 3 songs from 50 Tyson and I decided to put Hold You Down (remix) on my upcoming mixtape. That joint was kinda hot.
Im tell yall too damn much and yall will just have to listen to the show> let me warn you know that yo ass is going to be rolling on the floor. Scotte Mac from IMM Radio didn’t help matters at all. But I love all my supporters regardless of how bad of an influence they are on me.
Choclate City presents Mc Shan
When my friend Scotte Mack told me he had interviewed Mc Shan on his morning show, I had to get in on the action. I grew up listening to his music and I was very familiar with him and his music. So he introduced me to Shan on Twitter and it took off after that. We spoke via twitter then we spoke on the phone and set up a date and time for him to ride da chocolate wave. I was already told that Shan was going to be a handful.
Its Tuesday night and its time for Shan to come on and I started having technical difficulties and I was mad as hell. I had to keep working with my laptop and then jumped on the iphone so I could let him in. I had texted him and told him to give me some extra time. Now that was out the way. Shan came on and instantly took part in the topic. The topic that night was if a girl sucks your nuts, does that make her nasty? And rest assured hella people chimed in on that topic. Shan shocked the hell out of me because he was like for talking music, lets talk about sex and fucking. I wasn’t mad at him because he was in a zone.
The interview was a good one and he shocked a lot of people with some of the shit that came out of his mouth. He kept it 100 and nasty just like I like it. I am looking forward to having him back on the show. I also get to meet him next month at Foxy 99.1 summer jam June 15, 2013. So yall already know there will be a part 2 to this interview. Yall already know my style and I aint about to tell the whole interview in the post. You will have to listen to the show and hear Shan’s nasty and freaky ass. He was also good with talking to the listeners and clicking with them. His ass rode da fuck out of the chocolate wave.
When my good friend Jerry Doby asked me to interview Blanco Caine, I was very honored. Because I knew this artist had to be special and had a powerful movement. I jumped at the chance to have him on the show. Then I was also told I would be breaking his new single "Spend-A-Holic". That had me saying aww shit because that is a blessing and honor at the same time to be trusted with a project that important. Now I was very taken in by the name of his mixtape "White America". I knew it was going to be the start of a strong movement. The words alone are powerful. Once I had the opportunity to speak with him and hear his music, I knew this project was going to be epic. Now y'all know how my sexy ass gives it up. I aint about to blog about the interview. You need to stop being lazy and listen to the interview for yourself. But in the mean while read up more on Blanco Caine and who da fuck he is.
CHICAGO’S BLANCO CAINE STIRS THE POT WITH ‘WHITE AMERICA’ PROJECT Chicago Hip Hop artist Blanco Caine intends to stir the pot and inform the Hip Hop masses about some still smoldering issues dealing with “White America.” Blanco’s highly anticipated release, “White America,” hosted by DJ Supastar J Kwik and DJ Vic Lloyd, comes on the heels of Fox network journalist Bill O’Reilly’s rants regarding the loss of “White Privilege.”
According to his interview with The Hype Magazine, Blanco Caine states that his musical influences include “Everything they didn’t teach or prepare me for in school is an inspiration…basically “White America.” He continues, “Controversy may ruffle a few feathers with this next release, but hey, I’m not here to make friends --- just great music.”
Blanco’s previous record “V12 Muzik” (Prod. By Tony Flocko), created quite a buzz for him and his featured (Cash Gang Empire) artist Bodi (Maserati) Deeder. “V12 Muzik” drew the personal attention of Chicago’s FakeShoreDrive.com owner, Andrew Barber who named the project “…one of the Top 20 songs of 2012.”
Following that buzz is Blanco’s newest single from “White America,” “Front My Move (Remix)” ft. Tree and Mikkey Halsted (Prod. By Goldy Barra and Million Dollar Mano (Kanye West). This song is another branded as a FakeShoreDrive favorite and made the site’s Song of the Week recently. Million Dollar Mano (Kanye West’s official DJ) heard the original record on a radio show, loved it, and took a personal hand in creating the official remix of “Front My Move.” The video for the record is finalized and due to be released soon.
“White America” is currently scheduled for release in May, supported by a unique clothing line #ush Clothing that has created designs for the project which are as controversial as the music it will represent. The “White America” branded clothing will spark the attention of both the news and fashion media and speaks loud and clear through visual impact --- the general consensus in Urban America about our current state of affairs as a nation.
More than just a rapper, Blanco Caine is an aware product of the most challenging upbringing and lifestyle. His formal education was backed by the reality checks of the street and he is here to tell his story and wear the flag of those with little or no voice, on his back. “White America” is the culmination of years of experience of one embedded in the trenches of urban reality. Blanco Caine is the messenger; throwing the proverbial alarm clock into the graveyard; to wake the dead. Find out more about Blanco Caine on his official website BlancoMuzik.com

Choclate City present G2 Muzik
I have a lot of artist hit me up on Twitter getting on my damn nerves, but this particular artist caught my attention. he retweeted and commented about a post I had with Emanuel DeAnda. I wanna say he listened to one of my shows and became a fan. He asked if he could send me some of his music and I was more than happy to listen to whatever he sent to my email. Due to the fact that he had became a new supporter for me. I support people that support me. So he sent me a email with a few songs and some very interesting facts that I will share with you in a few moments.
Now I'm not a prejudice person at all. So i was shocked when I saw that his was white and then when I heard Fasholey, my damn mouth dropped to the floor. I was completely caught off guard but in a good way. I instantly became a fan of his. i had to get him on the show and let my listeners hear his flow. Being from the Bay area, you already know their accent is crazy and in the music world, it enhances the flow.
So I got him on the show and I was truly pleased with him and his interaction. And then he made me blush with all the compliments he was giving me. he even asked me out on a date. I dont date artist but if he is ever close enough, then he will mos def be the first one. He mind set is truly amazing just like his music. i had to put him on March Madness the mixtape. Now yall can listen to the interview and look at his video and I can stop typing. Im out. Lol!
