LAist Interview: Cage (Chris Palko)
If the name Chris Palko doesn't mean anything to you, follow these steps:
Step 1) Get a fucking time capsule or something close to it --hell, go to the bank drive-thru teller if you have to and steal the bank drive-thru's tube-capsule.
Step 2) Write down the name Chris Palko on some deposit slips you prolly stole as well in the process.
Step 3) Rush home and prepare to bury this capsule --to be unearthed in say, 18 months.
Step 4) You now have 18 months to begin fucking --you have 1+ years to create a household. --get to "cramming"...'nuff baby-making time for 2 kids.
-Fast fwd in the space time continuum-
Step 5) It's been over a year, dig up that capsule and open it. Do you have a household? 'Cause you my friend, are holding a piece of paper with a Household name, and probably some Bank of America pens you stole. You bastard! You met Kennylz. . .
Welcome to the Cage Kennylz fan club. We've been waiting for you.
~Cage is my favorite rapper on this whole wide earth~
I want to get a picture of you, smiling. I think your next album cover should be a picture of you cheesing. Your label-mates, Hangar18 are rocking baking soda [in their video], you need to rock some Cheez-Whiz. What ya think? Too paradoxical?
No, I think artwork from Alex Pardee would be a lot better.
There is much reference to Stanley Kubrick in your music, obvs most notably the song Agent "A Clockwork" Orange. Did you ever get a chance to go to the Korova Milk Bar in the East Village of NYC? (Now moving to White Plains, NY).
Yeah, I was there, it was kind of novelty, but cute.
People want to know, out of your "old heads" (prior labels & groups --EasternConference/SmutPeddlers/etc), who are you still tight with? --Alchemist (producer)? Beetlejuice/Lester (appeared on the Smut Peddlers album cover/of Sten Show infamy)?
None of them.
Smut peddlers was a put together group, and Beetlejuice was Rawkus's idea.
I really didn't like that whole thing. Beetlejuice was famous because why??
