Ullnevano (@Ullnevano) is a very dope individual indeed. Not only does he hold true to the true tenets of Hip Hop, but he is a very down to earth and knowledgeable subject. I've had the pleasure of knowing the brother for a few years now, first meeting him at the famed Reflection Eternal Barbershop co-owned by my Berea brethren Andwele (another individual deserving of a WISDOM SEEKER interview in the near future). Even though I'm no longer physically in B-more, I still keep in contact with my Hip Hop family, and I consider Ullnevano as an integral part of that extension.
I had the honor of interviewing Ullnevano for the highly anticipated project The Ghost Of Len Bias, a collaborative effort with Harm City producer/beatsmith Jumbled (@NapalmDef). We had an in-depth convo revolving around Len Bias, continued violence in Baltimore, the state of Hip Hop and the anticipation behind the labor of love that is The Ghost Of Len Bias. Our 30-minute phone conversation was definitely eventful and fruitful, but I apologize in advance for the audio quality not being up to par. I did not want to delay this interview any longer than I've already done, so please enjoy and listen (to the best of your ability). Support Ullnevano, Jumbled and TGOLB project when it is released.

9th Wonder has carved out a dope niche in the pantheon of Hip Hop lore because of his every-evolving and influential nature. Be it top-notch production, Hip Hop education, shining light on the vast NC talent pool, 9th has been a beacon as well as influence in my life. This PBS-based video gives another glimpse into the incredible life of 9th Wonder.

Pull that card from the evil one who thinks that his monetary status is all powerful
I said a mouthful but more needs to be said before our ideals are dead
Deceased from being released into a polluted atmosphere of fear and hate
Don't take the bait but wait for the opportunity knocking on our shore doors
Ban a man or woman because of religious belief is walking a path laid by slavery savored forefathers
And now we see this hatred come to strange fruition in this 21st century foxtrot
Through a wilderness that may soon be blocked by a wall called racism that will never be erased
White without black equals invisibility so is this what we want as our reality that is a virtual lie
Where alternative facts are believed and perceived as what is right but left out one thing, truth
Proof is right in front of our collective faces and at fingertips tweeting the revolution that is still now televised
Rise of the machine that doesn't deserve me to call by name because it is a true shame
Game set match but will not shake hands at the net I bet there will be regret sooner than later
Call me a hater but true hatred causes bloodshed and enough dead to make naysayers take a closer view
Cards dealt so should the hand be thrown in or played as they are you be the judge at this moment
Because this Trump card is nothing more than a dumb fraud to try and bump God off His throne
