Posted by Safari Jeffries on Aug 6

Safari: Where are you from? How did it influence your musical style?

Kydd Jones: I'm from Austin, TX the live music capital of the world. I grew up listening to every type of music in my city because everybody comes here. In the streets you'll hear rock, electronic, blues, punk, and of course hiphop.

Safari: If you were stranded in the desert and there were 3 items that you could have, what would they be and how would they be used?

Kydd Jones: Solar panel with USB plugs, my computer to make beats and my cell phone. I'm a figure the rest out myself.

Safari: Tell us about the Righteous LP. Where did the concept come about?

Kydd Jones: The Righteous LP came out because I wanted to show the righteous young kid in a world full of greed. It was a progression from my last album in that I got back to my Southern hip-hop roots.

Safari: Why is A3C Important to you and Important to the Culture?

Kydd Jones: A3C is very important to me and to the hiphop culture because it's one of the largest hiphop festivals in the world and it tries to include every style and genre of hiphop which is great for emcees and producers to hear new sounds and network.

Safari: What should we expect from you at the 2014 A3C Festival?

Kydd Jones: To be THAT dude. I'll be putting myself out there with a highly energetic set with lots of crowd participation and definitely want to network with as many people as possible.

Safari: Since A3C, how has your Career been affected? What Milestones have you achieved?

Kydd Jones: Since my last performance at A3C in 2012, a lot has happened. I performed with Chuck D and Public Enemy in LA for the Hip Hop Gods Tour, opened up for Danny Brown in Austin during SXSW, and opened for Jay Electronica and Raekwon at the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival 10th anniversary show. I even did a show in Canada at the A3C event for NXNE a few months ago.

Safari: Where do you see the Hip Hop Culture in the next 5 years?

Kydd Jones: Weird as fuck, the game is changing everyday and we might be going back to the early 2000s style of music with trap and whatnot. Sometimes it seems like wack music is in or that's what is promoted a lot of the time but I'll be making good music regardless.

Safari: What up-coming projects are on the horizon?

Kydd Jones: My new album GR33D is coming out this year so make sure to cop that!

Safari: If the fans want to connect with you, how can they reach out?
