Thes One Tells Artists “You Don’t Have To Get Signed”

December 7, 2009

Thes One and Double K of People Under The Stairs describe first meeting through their mutual love for music and concepts behind bootstrapping a music career.  Besides providing some great vinyl talk, Thes One also offers his views on the unprecedented level of power and freedom that independent artists currently enjoy.

We met each other at a record store, where most good rap groups, as far as I know,probably meet.

I have a hard time feeling sorry for dudes when things are so much easier than they were.  You don’t have to get signed.  If it was ’86, the only way you were going to make a record is if  you went into the office with a cassette tape and was like “Please put me on” and it’s not like that anymore.
