Interview By: Carrick Wenke
Easily one of my favorite artists I’ve discovered this year, bujemane (and his cohorts in BBE) is exactly what I want Rap Music to be. There’s literally never a moment where I don’t think it’s appropriate to put a buje f bby joint on ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ . Not only that, but I truly admire his part in the Hardcore/Metal scene as well (he actually is a fan of the music he’s not on the foo “Punk Asthetic” tip lots of other rappers are on). This Thursday marks the release of his latest EP I Quit, which he worked alongside Gary on exstensively. I almost forgot to mention he and I recently started a Gang called “Fuck Cat Callers”, so if you’re reading this and Cat Call, stop.
Who Are You? What Do You Wanna Tell The World About Yourself?
I’m bujemane, buje no boof bags, buje no bluetooth, buje f bby, buje based god. I love y’all, but I want y’all to love me even more.
What/Who Are Your Main Inspirations For Making Music?
I think a lot of my main inspirations are my peers and people around me like a lot of my homies. Like Ghoulavelii, Aramis, Gary, those are the main ones just because I work with them so much. Inspiration wise, just the ability to create shit and say what I want on a beat is inspiring to me.
Who Are Some Producers You Work With?
We got my dude Brick Ruben, we got my dude Gary, we got my dude Tesla Tea, we got my dude Camren, I haven’t dropped anything with him yet but I’m excited because he’s sick. Jackie Zan. I like work with the same producers so I’m trying to think if there’s someone I’m forgetting. I’ll pat myself on the back for the “OOO” beat.
Are You Affiliated With Any Artists Or Crews?
I’m an avid member of Boiler Boyz, shout out to 4716 ganggangganggang. Shout out to Hellur Records, and WestVill Records as well.
Who Are Some Artists You Wish To Work With In The Future?
brrrrrrrrrrb, I thought about this the other day. I don’t really think about working with people who are popular right now, not because they’re popular but just because I think about working with people around me more. Definitely a lot of the people around me are an inspiration and I seek to work with them. Like Glenn and Khris P from ILLFIGHTYOU, and Yohiness, Ralph Dozer. There’s so many people.
*cop drives by*
Who is God Blessin’?
Of course Young Thug, I mean Jefferey, my bad, definitely blessed. I should have studied for this. Me, I feel blessed, I’m blessing everybody though. Shouts out to me. Y’all should definitely say I’m blessing you next time somebody asks.
How did you join BBE?
I became a member by meeting Crimewave over the internet. We linked up, smoked some blunts, and then I met my homie Gabe, and also the homie Jackson out in Beaverton bum fuck Oregon. Shout out to y’all. We all just became homies and became Boiler Boyz.
What is Red Zone?
It’s a community, it’s not street wear, it’s not a skate brand, everyones welcome to wear it as long as you’re progressive and bettering yourself. Sick.
Tell us about your Zine “New Gods”.
Shout out to Zayne from Hellur Records, we just did a Zine together called “New Gods”, and I got the first half of the Zine as my photos so I’m into photography now I guess.
What was your favorite late 90s/early 2000s Disney channel original movie?
I’m not a huge Disney fan to be honest, but Brink! when he goes into the hay bail at the end.
What are your top 3 favorite Rock/Metal/Punk bands since you actually listen to those genres?
I’m gonna keep it local for sure and give some shouts out to Ground Feeder, GF, my fuckin’ boys. I’m also gonna say Extortionist, shout out to Crimewave. Last I’ll probably say The Scare, they’re on tour right now going hard.
When Can We Expect Your Next Project To Drop?
9/15/2016 that’s Thursday the 15th of September. It’s a new tape called I Quit, it’s only like 12 minutes on some real hip hop shit, rap music. Play it while you go to school or work or some shit.
Shout out to everybody in the world stay safe and be happy and be nice to people and also Red Zone site is about to drop soon so get your gear, rep that shit. Shout out eTc Tacoma, shout out 35th in Federal Way. I got a whole bunch of shout outs but I don’t have time for that and I don’t wanna make Carrick type that much so that’s it.
