We got a chance to do an interview with the Nu Jerzey Devil. He is the head producer of Black Wallstreet and is releasing his album The Devils Playground later this year. You’ve probably heard of him on tons of mixtape songs featuring the Game and Lil Wayne. His new single “Different Girls” feat Lil Wanye is out now. Check out the video below to see the song “Rapper slash Rocker”. Thanks Jerzey for doing this interview with IM KING!
Beef Stew: How did you get the name Nu Jerzey Devil? Well I was in the studio with Game & we were working on a song & at the end of the song he shouted out "Nu JerZey Devil on the track" and from there on the name just stuck. Beef Stew: When and How did you become apart of Black WallStreet? I've been with Black Wall Street since day 1. I was introduced to The Game through a mutual friend (Phat Rat) and from the time we met we been we've been working together. From doing mixtapes to going on world tours. Beef Stew: Speaking of The Game what is it like working with him, what happens whenyou two are in the lab? Take us through the process of creating a song. Well The Game is the easiest artist to work with (for me anyways). We have a formula & chemistry so its damn near automatic. We hit the studio, I play the beat & he kills the track! Its that simple. Beef Stew: Who are some of the other artist you've worked with and who'sbeen your favorite artist to work with thus far and why? I worked with Amerie, Lil Scrappy, Busta Rhymes, Jim Jones just to name a few but Lil Wayne is probably my favorite to work with besides Game cause he's a real genius & knows how to make a hit record in a short period of time. Beef Stew: You've got your own clothing line going called "Heaven or Hell"for those who don't know, where does your fashion sense derive from? Well I'm a fly nigga so having my own line only makes sense. Plus fashion is a element of hip hop & I breathe, sleep & shit hip hop! Beef Stew: What advice would you give someone looking to be a musician or an owner of a promising clothing brand? Stay persistent focused & on top of your game. Give it your 110% cause trust me if u don't someone else. Hard work pays off & whatever you put in is what u get back so GO HARD! Beef Stew: What is your favorite piece that IM-KING has, and why is this so? Aside from the Jackets I live the city of angels t-shirt. I like how they made the wings with guns. I thought that was pretty dope. Beef Stew: What do you have in the works for 2009, how's The Devil's Playground project coming along and who's going to be on it? My main focus for 2009 is to finish my album which will be a classic! So far I have Raheem Devaughn, The Game, Lil Wayne & Neyo on there. As far as producers I'm going to do most of the production along with Scott Storch, E.P & my in house producers. Beef Stew: In what way's does IM-KING relate to the music you produce? Well how I dress is how I feel & how I feel is how I express my music so when u see me in the fly IM-King apparel you know my swag is right which makes me feel good & in return I produce better music. Beef Stew: What's one thing the public doesn't know about Nu Jerzey Devil? I'm a class clown. A lot of people just look at my backround & gang ties & automatically assume I'm a mean asshole but they don't know I like to have fun & enjoy life. If someone disrespects me or crosses the line then that's something different but I like to enjoy my life. Beef Stew: Before you leave this Earth what is one thing you would like to accomplish? To make sure my daughter's future is secure & to make sure she doesn't have to work a day in her life! Beef Stew: Any last words you wanna say to everyone out there? Thanx for all of yall support.
