November 2014 I had the extreme luck of having a phone interview with Slaine, veteran hip-hop rapper from Special Teamz, and La Coka Nostra, as well as having a very reputable solo career. He was in Europe getting ready to head over and do a Canadian tour, which unfortunately was not scheduled for the west coast, I still look forward to seeing him sometime this year. I wasn’t aware at the time, but Slaine had recently gotten sober and was very inspirational in the way he spoke to me. He was an encouraging force and I was taken by surprise at his openness and honestly. Check the interview below.
