(AllHipHop News) West Coast rap duo Audio Push have been releasing music since 2009, but 2013 has proven to be somewhat of a breakout year for the precocious group. Last Friday (December 20th) AllHipHop caught up with Price and Oktane outside of the UCB Theatre after their appearance on Cipha Sounds’ Take It Personal and talk new music for 2014, their grind and how they relate to Wale’s rant against Complex.
After signing to Hit-Boy’s HS87 independent imprint through Interscope Records in 2012, Price and Oktane of Audio Push released their mixtape Come As You Are in September. The group revealed that they recently shot the video for the Joey Bada$$-assisted song “‘Tis The Season” off the mixtape.
One collaborator on Come As You Are, Wale, was also a labelmate of theirs back in 2009. The pair explain how the sentiment behind Wale’s recent verbal lashing of Complex Media was understandable:
Price: We been getting in and we were at Interscope the same time [Wale] was. When he got dropped, it was all the same. We went through the same things he went through so we know the whole grind period, man. These n*ggas is going to talk forever, man.
Oktane: I like the fact that it’s making his music better. That’s good to me. People say ‘your sh*t ain’t dope yet’ and if you know you dope like Wale know he dope, then you go in there and work and make it crazier than it already is.
