Hip hop lovers get ready, Connecticut’s Apathy and Celph Titled will be taking the stage at Spiritbar on Saturday night. Before they take the stage Christine Hunter caught up with Apathy for a few questions.

1. What have you heard about the Nelson hip hop scene? What does it mean to come here after all the years of Peter and Christine trying to book you over the past five years?

Honestly I’ve never heard of Nelson before. I’m not too educated on Canadian geography. But I’m definitely excited to see it.

2. What artists inspired you to become involved with hip hop? What is your favourite album of all time? What is your ultimate goal at the end of your career?

The list is so long as far as artists who inspired me. I’m an above average hiphop fan, so everyone from Run DMC, Beastie Boys, Rakim, Chuck D and Ice Cube to the more obscure groups like The Legion, The Boogiemonsters and Organized Konfusion, inspired me to want to do this shit. My favourite album of all time is Illmatic by Nas. And I can never call it, as far as career goals. I just take what comes and try to navigate through the industry, the best I can.

3. Having worked with the likes of Sage Francis, Fort Minor, Mike Shinoda, 7L and Esoteric, Jedi Mind Tricks, Army of the Pharaohs just to name a few. An with the forthcoming of your latest project Will Sing for Vengeance EP who are some other individuals you guys would like to colab with, or some of the most memorable ones?

Showbiz and AG, Pete Rock and CL Smooth and Ghostface, there’s a lot of people I wanna work with. My most memorable colabs would have to be working with DJ Premier, Xzibit, Cypress Hill, Busta Rhymes, Mad Lion, Beatminerz and Pete Rock, there’s a lot. I definitely feel blessed.

4. What’s there opinion on where hip hop has gone in recent years, An where do they see hip hop taking them in future years?

I can never call it. Hip hop definitely seems like it lost touch with it’s creativity and originality for a while, but I’ve been given hope by newer artists coming out. Action Bronson, The Doppelgangaz, Joey Bad A$$ are all really dope.
