Whether it’s serving up jokes on “The Rickey Smiley Morning Show” every weekday morning, or delivering some of the most clever punchlines in Hip-Hop with his group, The Bodega Brovas, or even on his solo music projects, Headkrack has yet again stepped up his game and is dishing out the laughs on the new TV show “Dish Nation.”
Check out AllHipHop.com’s interview with one of the busiest men in entertainment, Headkrack:
AllHipHop.com: Thanks for taking some time out to talk to us, Headkrack – we know you are crazy busy right now! So, tell us about this new project, “Dish Nation”, that you’re working on. How did you come up with the idea, and who all is involved with the project?
Headkrack: “Dish Nation” is a new show put together by a guy name Stu Weiss, who has a great relationship with Fox and its subsidiaries, and they take five different morning shows and let us put an ill spin on Pop Culture stories.
AllHipHop.com: So, it’s being syndicated then…
Headkrack: Yup! We’re on in like more than 90 percent of the country. Plus, we have viral clips on the web, too.
AllHipHop.com: How long have you been thinking on making the jump from radio to TV?
Headkrack: I’ve always wanted to do TV; I just had no idea it would be in this format. I always saw myself hosting a “Yo! MTV Raps” type show, but this definitely works. And it’s pretty def, ’cause I get to go to work and do two jobs at the same time.
AllHipHop.com: When can people expect to catch “Dish Nation” on their own TVs?
Headkrack: It varies from city to city, but you can peep DishNation.com to check the times and channels in your city.
AllHipHop.com: What are you most proud of with this show?
Headkrack: I’m proud that I can go on TV as a representative of the Hip-Hop culture, and kick that educated, slick isht that I’m capable of kicking, and I get to do a freestyle segment every Friday. All off the dome.
AllHipHop.com: What has been the hardest part of this transition?
Headkrack: I have a very dark sense of humor, and some of the stuff that flies on the radio doesn’t necessarily play well while ya moms is cooking dinner. So it’s pretty much about me finding my comfortable danger zone and keeping the vibe right.
AllHipHop.com: Besides the cameras, what has been the biggest thing to get used to during this transition from radio to TV?
Headkrack: On the radio, it doesn’t matter what you look like, but TV is way less forgiving. Beard gotta be crisp, my gym game gotta stay steady, and you gotta ham it up a notch for the cameras. Easy game. I’m ready to play it.
AllHipHop.com: You have mastered print, radio, music, now TV. Is there anything left for Headkrack to conquer?
Headkrack: In life, you never master anything. You can get good at it, but masters are always eventually overthrown. I’m spinning a few wheels right now to see which one will keep a ski-mask off my face and get my bills paid. I’m trying to conquer hearts and minds. I want to be loved.
AllHipHop.com: Where can people keep up with both you and the new project, sir?
Headkrack: On the music side, The Bodega Brovas are still cooking that heat. We don’t sell cocaine, so it takes us a minute to finance the things we want to do. See us at BodegaBrovas.com. As of recently, I’ve been galvanizing my stories of late night partying, travel, and debauchery to complete my solo works. Both endeavors will remind you why you gravitated towards Hip-Hop to begin with. Like me on Facebook.com/Headkrack. Chase me on Twitter.com/headkrack.
