Psykhomantus: You've also re dub Bill Cosby's "Fat Albert" making it into a Hip Hop comedy and using a lot of J Dilla productions as background music. Who came up with that crazy idea?
PiKaHsSo: On the cool Tahiti came up with that idea after we was in this popular rap group down here in Dallas called PPT everyone started treating us like we had rabies or we was the old rappers in the plastic bubble, so we said hey man i can look at these dudes in they eyes and tell they think we are old washed up & done lets do something to trip the whole world out. So i took Leave iT To Beaver old episodes and redid it and Snuggles The Fabric Softner Bear and made it as vulgar, raw and offensive as i possibly could. Then Tahiti sends me Fat Albert Episode 0 Prince Fat Albert Where He had the Fat Albert Character talking with British faux English accents i was like man thats funny as hell then he send me Fat Albert Episode 1 Who Shot Mudfoot & it was raw, polarizing, offensive, avante garde, insane and dope i was like wow thats so damn ill. I thought it was doper than my silly Leave It To Beaver & Snuggles The Fabric Softner idea somehow my boy Bavu Blakes tells me about Twitter and that i should start a account to get it out to a lot of people so i start my @PiKaHsSo twitter account and i blast out that Fat Albert Who Shot Mudfoot Epidsode The One & Only Erykah Badu see’s it and starts talking about it then Questlove of The Roots sees its then it just got so damn crazy over night my God. Honestly i looked in my inbox and i had bout 300 to 400 followers on twitter over night and people was calling me talking like Fat Albert Laughing and stuff and asking me how did i get on Worldstarhiphop.com I’m like i didn’t do that that Fat Albert N The Hood caused internet mayhem and its all because Bavu telling me to start a twitter, Erykah Badu talking bout and Questlove giving us a cosign saying we are giving the Boondox a lil competition. We had no idea that lil parody was gone do that to this day people come up to me quoting the lines and asking me about the J DiLLA Beats in the Backgrounds me & Tahiti are some Dilla Heads so we did that to pay homage to him. We even premiered The New Slum Village feat Marsha Ambrosia on one of The Episodes they had a manager named Scrap Dirty who turned them on to us & he had us saying man peep the new Slum Village i get bubbles in my stomach thinking of all the media attention we got from that silly stuff me & Tahit did just being dumb. And no Bill Cosby has not chin checked us yet everyone asks me that all the damn time.

Psykhomantus: Dangerous Question Is there an Rapper you feel that should just give it up?
PiKaHsSo: Dangerous Question hmmm honestly as crazy and zany as i may appear i hate to be cruel, mean, hurtful to someone or they dreams its not that im scared to say someones names its just that when i die i would hate to be like wow i said some hateful stuff they may make someone feel bad about they music. Yes its rappers out there who’s music i don’t like like its a lot of rappers who don’t like mines but to tell someone to give up just aint me because its something out there for everyone. To be honest some people have gotten mad at me because i think Drake is a dope rhyme spitter like its something wrong with thinking he can rap cause he can. But nobody should give up cause someone tells you to that makes me wanna do it more & i like to meet the person who can tell me i can’t
