Real Talk: Kinda Dusty

“Kinda Dusty is a support system of artists that operate as a crew, label, platform and whatever they want it to be” says Ethereal, one fourth of the artist collective. On a Monday afternoon in Ding Ho, Lex, Rev and I sat down with some of the most focused brothers in the city of Wor. This is how we break bread b, REAL TALK.

WM: What is Kinda Dusty?

Ethereal: Louie Gonz (MC/DJ), DJ Manipulator (Producer, DJ), Paul Mighty (Engineer, Producer, MC) and myself Ethereal (MC, Graphic Designer, Site Manager, All Around Artist). Kinda Dusty is a artist collective, basically a support system of artists, we operate as a crew, label, platform, whatever we want it to be.

WM: How did you get together?

Paul Mighty: Skivi is my brother who couldn’t be here for the interview, Louie I have known forever, E left a prior situation and started recording over at my camp, I got in touch with DJ Manipulator through him. Manipulator lived close to me and we both did the same kinda thing so I thought that was cool. DJ ImageManipulator dropped a mixtape called “Studio Kinda Dusty,” one day just talking in my room I said it would be cool to do something with the name “Kinda Dusty,” maybe another mixtape or something like that. We have a friendship, a bond, these are my brothers, we go bowling together, movies, etc. I went to school to learn music, I still got student loans and everything! I don’t charge E anything to record. I do this for the love, I just ask he shows respect and if I ever was in a jam he can help me out, one hand washes the other.

WM: What are some of the projects you have released and are currently working on now?

Ethereal: The one physical release we did was Spit Supreme’s — Quick Strike II hosted by DJ J-Ronin. This came out a few months ago prior to Spit’s name change.

WM: Lou, what made you change your name from Spit Supreme to Louie Gonz?

Louie Gonz: The backpack got too heavy! Nah, I mean a lot of people got confused, I’m not a 5 per center. I be in New York a lot and they think I’m a 5 per center and I always have to explain myself. I like Louie Gonz, it’s my first name with my last name shortened. I’m 24 now. I’m getting older. I’m thinking long run, new chapter, fresh start.

ImageWM: What is the “Wall Street” project?

Ethereal: That is the next big release from Kinda Dusty.

Paul Mighty: What happened was E and I were working together and I showed him some beats, he picked one, said he loved it and he was gonna use it. A week later he comes back and does a song called Gordon Gekko to it, he basically watched Wall Street and there you have it! Watch what you say around him cause it will turn it into a song, that’s been the running joke through his career! After doing that one song, E called me and said he was thinking bout doing a whole concept album around the movie Wall Street. I mean how much more creative can you get than that!

Editors Note: This was more than just an article we put together it was an experience. Breaking bread w/Kinda Dusty showed me how far Worcester Hip-Hop has come in these last few years. With the success of the Mass Stand Up shows they have put together and constant flow of digital media it’s only fitting for us to feature them, beyond that we fam and have nothing but the utmost respect for these brothers. This is only the start stay tuned because Worcester Magazine & HHTT have a lot more in store for you w/Kinda Dusty! Be sure to grab the latest edition of Worcester Magazine and get up on REAL TALK!

The Smack Down Bboy Competition in Allston, Ma

First off I gotta big up T.R.U. member Reez for bringing me to the event and making sure I got the best footage I can.  I’ve never been to an event like this before and have never seen so much love between people in hip hop that were competing against each other.  Being at this event I realized the difference between rap and Bboying and how commercialized the emceeing part of hip hop is and how it has been exploited by the companies that control its distribution.  Witnessing this event (both the cyphers and battles) showed me first hand that even though dancing has had its share in the limelight , for the most part it is just as pure as when it began.  Big Shot Out to the Floor Lords for sponsoring the event as well as the other brothers involved in putting the jam together, I look forward to being at many more.

T.R.U. Crew Practice Session

We recently had the opportunity to get up with our brothers from T.R.U. Crew ( Top Rock United Crew ) and get some footage of them practicing. I’ve known these cats from way back in the day ( 96-97 ).And these dudes been on they grind the last few years , everytime I see them perform I see more and more improvements as well as witness the human body move in ways I never thought possible. Funny thing about all this , is that they do this stuff EASY , my boy Backspace had a twisted knee and was all over the place and Reez was just messing around with the headspins , Backspace told me they were his “shitty headspins” these dudes really leave me speechless. Big shot out to the rest of the members Maximus, Lace, Rek and Fuse. For more info on T.R.U. Crew visit Myspace.com/TopRockUnit
