G Yamazawa has long represented Durham, North Carolina on the national and international stage as a spoken word poet. Now, he’s putting on for the Bull City as a rapper as well. Following the surprise breakout of “North Cack” and the album Shouts To Durham in 2017, G has continued to release freestyles and music videos and play shows, most recently as a supporting act on select West Coast dates of Dumbfoundead’s Yikes! tour. Due to a coincidental scheduling quirk, G happened to be playing UNC the day before the tour hit Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro, and was added to the bill. We caught up with him the day after show, and despite slight hangovers all around, persevered for one of our best interviews to date.
If you enjoyed the show, PLEASE rate us on iTunes and leave a review, tell a friend, or even just shoot us a tweet @superemptync about what you liked! We’d love to get your feedback.
