Sorry for the wait everybody! But here it is… the 9th Interview by the Hip Hop Speakeasy! Now, this one was really for Panacea, as a group. However, previously, we interviewed Restoring Poetry in Music, and Panacea and RPM share the same MC, that is, Raw Poetic. So, instead of reposting Raw Poetic’s answers, you can check his responses to these questions HERE, and below you can find the answers to the questions from the mastermind producer of Panacea, K-Murdock. There are a few exceptions, however, where we did include Raw Poetic’s answer as it pertained specifically to Panacea and not RPM. So… Check it out:
A: “As I’ve gotten older I try and listen to more and more genres of music, but I always come back to hip-hop, maybe it’s because I feel the greatest connection to it since I grew up in it’s golden era, and even though the majority of it that’s played on radio/TV is not what I relate to, I still love hearing some dope beats and lyrics and that’s what hip-hop is to me- beats, rhymes & life!”
Q: What is your inspiration for creating songs (in general and/or specifically)?
K-Murdock: “I just think it’s the lack of bravado and the ability to be ourselves, from the music to Raw P’s rhymes you get a good balance of our lives- often codified 7 hidden in the clever lyrics, as well as bigger more fantastic allusions to things we all can relate to, so it’s a unique chemistry that I really cant explain but am very thankful for it and to have linked with Raw P.”
