Haji P is a funny dude. Funny in person, funny on the internet and funny in his music. His album “Neighborhood Kid” with DJ MF Shalem is a good example of his humor.
This track from Neighborhood Kid rules! Rob Rush HAHAHA.
Lets let Haji do the rest of the talking! Haji, got some answers for us?
1. Why Hip Hop?
Honestly, I just always had a passion for perpetual disappointment. Like, ever since I was a kid, I used to say, “Gee wiz, mom! I can’t wait till I grow up and graduate from college with a useful degree, so I can get the exact job I’ve worked so tirelessly for..and then, once I get it, I’ll stare directly down the beady little eyes of my approaching success and say…’Screw you, success! I’ma go write rap songs!’” And then I just did that sh*t. Cause I’m a boss. Now, instead of owning property and talking about fancy wines and expensive house pets, I do shows at dive bars with sucky sound for embarrassingly small crowds of people because all my friends that said they’d come always find some irreverently lame excuse as to why they couldn’t make it…but it’s totally cool tho, because the eight people that did make it were just as excited about not buying my CD as the hundreds of other people that would’ve come if their blank didn’t have to blank. Hip-hop, f*ck yeah!
2. if you had $100k Drop in your lap right now what would you do with it?
Invest in starting a charity that’ll benefit the youth. Haji P loves the kids. If there’s anything left, I’d spend it on booby watching. Haji P loves the boobies.
3. If you could have 1 super power, what would it be and how would you use it?
I’m really up in the air on that one (Ha, get it? Like flying!? I’m freakin awesome.) Anyway, I’ll tell you one superpower I definitely would NOT want. So, I’ve been up on this show “Misfits” lately. You should definitely peep it, its hype. But, on the show, this one chicks power is the ability to make people want to molest her. Seriously, she’s like Rogue, but the exceedingly slutty version. When people touch her, she absorbs their desire to aggressively perform lascivious deeds. It’s like having the power to request being raped. I don’t see how that’s convenient for anybody. Yikes.
4. Do you have any skills in the kitchen? If yes, what’s your signature dish, if no why the hell not?
If by skills you mean, ” applied proficiency at culinary creation”…then no. But, if by skills you mean “can you rap good where people keep milk and cutlery”…then yes. I feel like it’s just downright ill-mannered of me to cook my own food when theres people working in restaurants the world over, toiling over a hot stove to prepare dishes to my perfection. So, you keep on cooking your own meals…Im’a go down to Bo Jangles and show Devante behind the counter just how much I appreciate the way my biscuits are buttered.
5. Can you rap the answer to this question?
I don’t understand this question. This question is stupid. Don’t ever ask it again. Hotel, motel, Holiday Inn.
6. What is the #1 Junk Food you just can’t ever refuse?
I would say Chex Mix. I’m a huge proponent of Chex Mix, but the amount of pretzels they put in that sh*t is extremely too disrespectful for me…so I won’t say Chex Mix. Other than that…baked goods. Oh, and Bo Jangles biscuits. Which, are baked goods. So I’ll stand by my previous answer. Baked Goods.
7. What is the most memorable moment in your hip hop life?
I once had a girl throw panties at me while on stage…that girl was unknowingly standing next to my mother. Hilarity and humiliation would later ensue.
8. What is #1 on your list of venues that you want to perform at and why?
On the reals, I’ve always wanted to perform on the Muppet Show stage, with Scooter introducing me…not Kermit. But, as that show was cancelled a year after I was born, I’d gladly take performing on Sesame Street as a consolation. Specifically on some type of Guy Smiley game show. I like Muppets, man.
Bonus Question: Is GreenLight Jerky so good you want to slap your mama?
It’s definitely good enough to slap my mama, but I wouldn’t do that cause my moms is from the hood…..that motherfreaker can fight!
