U-God Slams Soul Temple Records
On His Issues With Soul Temple Records
You want me to talk about these dudes? I have nothing positive to say right now about that so I don’t really wanna talk about that. Just how they handled my record. I’m not feeling it. I’m not gonna sugarcoat it. I’m not gonna be saluting somebody that did a bad job. Fuck that. I ain’t come all the way here to be…it could’ve done 10 times better. For some apparent reason they always fumble my ball. If I’m throwing a fucking rocket down the middle, they gonna fumble my ball for some apparent reason, and I’m getting tired of that shit. It’s not me. It’s the company. But RZA is supposed to make some new changes and stuff like that. We’ll see.
“They fucking handle my record like it’s ghetto or something. I’m more of a businessman than some of these people.”
It ain’t do shit. I’m not feeling that. The fans aren’t receiving their mail, their autographed signings. I signed like 700 copies and fans are talking about how they didn’t receive it. That shit pisses me the fuck off. They need to lift their game a bit. Right now I’m doing all this on my own. All this press and promotion and pushing it around. Thank you for having me come through and interviewing me. I’m really appreciative. That’s basically where I’m at right now.
We’re making changes up at Soul Temple. We don’t know what’s going to happen. It’s a funny thing when you’re trying to perfect something. You gotta work out the kinks. There’s always going to be kinks with brand new shit. Now motherfuckers are probably like, “Damn, you shouldn’t be going through kinks. You’ve been in the game for 20 fucking years!” But they fucking handle my record like it’s ghetto or something. I’m more of a businessman than some of these people. But it’s whatever. It’s getting out there. Slowly but surely, it’s getting out there.
