Many times when it comes to entertainers, we tend to generalize and make assumptions about who they are. We mainly base our ideas off of what we see on the screen, or what we hear on the radio. This seems to be especially true when it comes to rappers. It is not uncommon for fans, or those who critisize the art of rap, to hear words of drugs, violence and the bravado that normally is heard throughout their lyrics to feel we know who they are. We feel we know their level of intellect and every aspect of their lives, but this is not true.
Recently, globalgeniussociety.com had the opportunity to have a conversation with the legendary rapper, Fiend (aka International Jones). As he prepared to put his youngest child to sleep for the night, he spoke to us not only about music and his latest release, #MFOK (Music For Our Kind), he also talked to us about fatherhood, being a husband, his dreams and some of the things he's had to deal with throughout the different stages of his epic career. With passion, great articulation, humor and laser focus, Fiend spoke words that will give everyone a much greater understanding of who he is as a man and how that impacts who he is an artist.
Take some time to enjoy this honest and insightful interview with Fiend.
