Black Rob and Buckshot will be coming up to the XXL offices on Wednesday, October 20 for a live interview on our weekly UStream show, Spoltlight.
Following our sit-down with Philadelphia rhyme slinger Cassidy last Wednesday, this week we’ll be catching up with Duck Down’s newest signee as well as the label’s co-founder to talk about their partnership, amongst other topics. The session will air in real-time simultaneously on both XXLMag.com and Channel Live at 4 p.m. EST. Fans are encouraged to hit @XXLStaff on Twitter with their questions for the New York rap vets.
The night before XXL‘s Spotlight Q&A session, BR will be performing at the CMJ Festival in New York City’s Le Poisson Rouge. The Duck Down Music VS Blacksmith CMJ Showcase bill also includes sets by Jean Grae, Pete Rock, Strong Arm Steady, Pharoahe Monch, Skyzoo & !llmind, Marco Polo with Torae & Ruste Juxx, Team Facelift and the Boot Camp Clik. Doors for the event are at 10 p.m., while performances are set to kick off a half hour later.
XXLMag.com has one pair of tickets to give away to the event. The first person to email XXL@harris-pub.com with their full name (first and last) and the correct answer to the following trivia question will win. Rob has worked with several big name producers over the years, but which former Gorillaz boardsmith did he collabo with before linking up with Diddy? Please put “Black Rob Tickets” in the subject line and do not enter the contest if you will not be in the Manhattan area on Tuesday night. A member of the XXL staff will notify the winner.
Be sure to tune in to Spotlight with Black Rob and Buckshot later this week. —XXL Staff
