Yo Gotti Live From The Kitchen Interview

via SoJones

SoJones: You started in 2000, worked with so many artists in the game (Gucci Mane, Plies, Lil Wayne to name a few), and your next release “Live From The Kitchen” drops next year (interview conducted in '09). Tell me a little about the new album.

Yo Gotti: Well you know the new album is out 1st quarter next year. I’ve been working with a lot of producers like Cool and Dre, J.U.S.T.I.C.E League, Jim Jones, Hot Rod (who made “5 Star Chick”), lots of producers…

SoJones: You hit the top rap charts with “ridiculous” ft. Gucci Mane & OJ Da Juiceman, and currently you had a spot on the new Clipse record. What was it like working with the Clipse?

Yo Gotti: Those are my homeboys, we work all the time. I’m a fan of the Clipse music so, when they reached out for me to get on the record, I’m gonna get on it. I think it’s a good response, me being on the record.

SoJones: It really was. I was always curious, how did you get the name Yo Gotti?

Yo Gotti: It was like a nickname that they gave me in the neighborhood, before I even got serious into rapping, so it was already my nickname. Then once my music jumped off, we just kept it the same.

SoJones: You and Gucci Mane I noticed have a really keen ear for beats. What your process for picking beats?

Yo Gotti: I get 1,000 beats a week. Good beats stick out, you know what I mean? You hear it when it first come on; if a beat can rock the club with no words on it, that’s the beat you wanna rap on.
