Jammerzine has an exclusive interview with underground legend DJ Bishop Tha DJ. Having just released his new album ‘#trueOGseries Vol 2: New Day Co-Op’, I get a chance to have a really good conversation about a diverse and informative, yes informative, album with one of the kings of collaboration. To say king of collaboration is an understatement. To say the least. Just check out the talent on this album. You have Bishop swapping swing with his mega-talent brother, Sun Zulu. You have Ashley S., Defcee, Eze Jackson…. I could go on. As we say in this interview, #trueOGseries is hopefully a roadmap as to where hip hop is going. Forward to its roots with a new perspective. Moving forward.
