A Breath of Vast Aire.

E.T. How did you come up with the name Vast Aire?
VAST I AM MOORISH NATIVE AMERICAN (Chactaw Indian) so I always wanted a name that sounded like broken english...like "big hawk" or "red cloud"...lol...a close friend of mine named me "VAST" it had a double meaning....it was for my size as well it represented my wits. Air was added on by me....it represented my zodiac sign. the Air also meant "Heir to the throne". I changed it a few times...but by 1998 it was VAST AIRE-

E.T. If you could change anything about hip-hop today what would it be?

VAST THE RADIO COULD AND SHOULD BE PLAYING MORE THAN THEY DO!!! RADIO IS WEAK!!!! HIP HOP IS A CULTURE, WE HAVE MORE THAN 12 SONGS A MONTH???? I LIKE SOME OF IT...BUT AFTER YOU HEAR THE SAME 12 SONGS ALL DAY YOUR READY TO SHOOT SOMEONE- LOL


E.T. What made you pursue a career as an emcee?
VAST I'M A MUSICIAN...NOT JUST AN MC. AN MC IS JUST A HOST- THE THE HOST WITH THE MOST...YA DIG- I COMPOSE SONGS AND I PRODUCE AND CO-PRODUCE. I DO A LOT THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH RAPPING. RAP IS JUST ONE PART-

E.T. Who do you got playing on your ipod?
VAST
GHOSTFACE & RAEKWON, JAY Z, YOUNG JEEZY, ERYKAH BADU.


E.T. Cannibal Ox's The Cold Vein is probably one of my favorite albums of all time. When you and Vordul where working on this project did you know it was going to be such an influential album?

VAST WE JUST EXPRESSED OURSELVES OPENLY AND FREELY! JUST LIKE I DID ON THE EMPIRE STATE LP BY MIGHTY JOSEPH OR MY NEW LP DEUCES WILD ON ITUNES!

E.T. What's next for Vast Aire?
VAST OX 2010 DUE OUT LATER THIS YEAR! I'M ALSO WRITING A BOOK ON SPIRITUALITY CALLED "THE ASIATIC CALENDAR"
IT WILL BE UNDER MY PEN NAME "VISHNU ALLAH"

E.T. Are you still a Definitive Jux artist? (if not, why?)
VAST NO NO NO AND THATS OLD...SINCE ABOUT 2003!!!!
IN FACT THE LABEL JUST FOLDED BECAUSE I DONT WORK WITH THEM ANYMORE.....THEY LOST ALL OF THEIR GREAT TALENT...LOL
THEY WERE VERY BAD WITH THEIR BIZ. THIS IS WHY NOBODY WORKS WITH THEM ANYMORE!!!! I THINK THEY MAKE DONUTS NOW??? LMAO-

E.T. If you could name 5 producers and 5 emcees you would love to work with,
who would they be?

VAST I WOULD LIKE TO WORK WITH A LOT OF PEOPLE...I'M NOT GOING TO LIST 10.


E.T. Are you still painting?
VAST ONCE IN A BLUE MOON-


E.T. Look Ma No Hands and Dueces Wild are both super fresh albums, but when will myself and other fans get to here another banger from Cann. O?

VAST I AM CANN OX...SO WHEN EVER YOU GET MUSIC FROM ME AND VORDUL THATS CAN OX- ME AND VORDUL ALWAYS WORK ON MUSIC, THATS CANN OX! LISTEN TO MECCA AND THE OX! OR BLOOD SPORT BY MIGHTY JOSEPH


E.T. What can we expect of Vast Aire in the future?
VAST NEW MUSIC LATER THIS YEAR, LOOK OUT FOR THE BOOK! CHECK MY MYSPACE AND FACEBOOK FOR UPDATES-

PEACE TO MAN WOMAN & CHILD-
