When asked about different artists leaving Strange Music, Bernz, candidly commented, “Sometimes you can’t be in business forever.”  The eloquent MC understands that financial contracts end; but, true friendship and creative respect may last a lifetime. Both Kutt Calhoun and Jay Rock are two former Strange Music artists that were brought up during the discussion.

Back in 2013 Bloody Cutty dropped Black Gold. This was the same year he departed from his long-time label. The group then concedes that  Kutt now possesses a new opportunity to personally brand himself. Soon they shared the “obvious” reason that 90059 lyricist left the K.C., MO indie imprint. “TDE has their own deal now,” said Bernz before he added, “I can totally understand from a business point-of-view why Jay Rock left. I don’t think it’s anything personal.”

Strange Music still boasts an amazing array of gifted lyricists. The eclectic and evolving group, which recently wrapped-up their Future Vintage tour, then expressed their thoughts on Strange Music, “¡Mayday! is happy when it comes to Strange!”
