It’s common knowledge that as NY (Let’s Go Knicks and Yankees) as I am to the core, I’ve always had a soft spot for Boston (or as we say Bawston) boys. Especially Boston rappers. Mixing members Everlast, DJ Lethal and Danny Boy of the historic group House of Pain with rising Beantown lyricists Slaine and Ill Bill, La Coka Nostra started making their mark in 2005. Performing with the group, launching a successful acting career and dropping solo projects, Slaine’s got a full slate on the horizon. Dropping his latest effort, The Boston Project , featuring a slew of dope up and coming artists a few weeks ago, he chose to spotlight the best the city has to offer.
I connected with Slaine right before he was set to fly to Mexico City and Chile to rock with the La Coka crew to discuss the recent Boston terrorist attack, his musical start, acting career, memorable concert performances and interestingly what he likes in a good woman. Peep the videos and soundclips below and check Slaine out on Twitter and Facebook !
