Fresh is the Word Podcast - Episode 91 - Buck Dudley

EPISODE #91: BUCK DUDLEY – IN THIS EPISODE:

This week’s guest is the New Jersey-based hip-hop producer Buck Dudley. Most known recently for his production on a variety of projects from hip-hop emcee CRIMEAPPLE (links to stream/purchase below). Buck Dudley is one of a select group of hip-hop artists that are reimagining the grimy east coast hip-hop sound from the 1990s into a new era. During our interview, we talked about his beginnings as a hip-hop producer, the reasons he makes music, when too much promotion is too much promotion, balancing the art form with its branding, working with CRIMEAPPLE, and much more.

Each episode, the guest is asked to suggest someone from their life/career that should be on Fresh is the Word that would have good stories. Buck Dudley chose a friend of his, Church from the band Simple Man.

THE FRESH PICK OF THE WEEK:

This episode’s pick is the album Van Ghost from D.C.-based hip-hop artist ANKHLEJOHN (@ANKHLEJOHN), produced entirely by Big Ghost LTD (who you may remember produced a previous pick in CRIMEAPPLE’s Aguardiente). Van Ghost is another solid release from this new class of artists that are reinventing the grimy side of hip-hop. There’s nothing flashy about this ANKHLEJOHN and Big Ghost LTD collaboration, just street rhymes and dirty beats.
