Interview with poet Darrell Herbert (The "Artivist")



Southeast Hip Hop Magazine recently sat down with rising poet, songwriter and Blacktopian poet Darrell Herbert to discuss his poetic masterpieces, humanitarian work, and more in this in depth exclusive interview!  Step into the mind of this superb writer, poet and master of the English language.  




Southeast Hip Hop Magazine:  Hey Darrell Herbert, how are you?  You ready for this interview?
Darrell Herbert: I am fine.  I am ready for my interview.


Southeast Hip Hop Magazine:  You call yourself an "Artivist", for those that may not know, what exactly is an "Artivist"?
Darrell Herbert: For those that may not know, what exactly is an Artivist is, it is an artist who combines their artistic expression with acts of activism. 





Southeast Hip Hop Magazine:  What are some of the causes that you take up and believe in fighting for?
Darrell Herbert: Some of the causes that I take up and believe in fighting for are gender roles, diseases, and homelessness. These causes, among many others, have really made me more of an aggressive writer, especially when I read about it, or hear about it through multiple media outlets. 


Southeast Hip Hop Magazine:  Do you also take part in volunteering your time and services to charity or participate in humanitarian work?
Darrell Herbert: I actually do take part in volunteering my time and services to charity, and participate in humanitarian work.  I have volunteered my time by reading my poetry special needs children, or the ill.  I volunteered at the Presbyterian Nursing Home by hosting bingo night.  I volunteered at the Sauquoit School District by helping move boxes of food for families in need.  I volunteered at NY Mills Elementary school by handing out Valentines Day cards and candy to a kindergarten class. I have also volunteered in an artist collective called Live from Underground by volunteering at community events including food drives, fundraising, and children activities. I donated money to a charity that ensures more educational opportunities for unprivileged youths. My participation in humanitarian work include Making Strides against Breast Cancer Walk­, Kidney Walk, Heart & Run Walk, Relay For Life, March for Babies Walk, Walk To End Alzheimer's, and The Revolutionary Challenge Summer Project. 




Southeast Hip Hop Magazine:  What are some of the changes you would like to see in America, or in the world?
Darrell Herbert: Some of the changes I would like to see in America have to deal with censorship, and this crazy unrealistic body image.  I hate that someone is excluded from a certain group just because they do not look the part.  Nobody should feel isolated from another group of people just for the simple fact that they are too skinny, or are overweight. 


Southeast Hip Hop Magazine:  Now, getting on to the subject of your poetry, how does writing poetry make you feel?
Darrell Herbert: Well, that all depends on what I am feeling at that particular moment. Writing when I am at my most vulnerable state of mind gives me more of an inspiration to piss people off with what I write about. Making people uncomfortable is how I want them to feel. I say this because so many subjects are translated in music videos and the media, and we are so used to it.  I have to be the one to break that cycle.  Pushing buttons also pushes the envelope.



Southeast Hip Hop Magazine:  What are some of the topics and subjects you usually write about?
Darrell Herbert:  The topics and subjects that I usually write about deal with relationships, isolation, depression, suicide, addiction, bullying, self-harm, racism, resentment, feelings of indifference to others, insecurities, among many others. 


Southeast Hip Hop Magazine:  Where can the readers find some of your material?    
Darrell Herbert: Readers can find my material in "Best Teen Writing of 2014," by Hannah Jones, Writers- Black Artists Connected Blog, Yellow Chair Review, Poetic Treasures Magazine, Section 8 Magazine, Blacktopia: Black Utopia Society Blog, Woman of P.O.W.E.R. blog, Media Blast Press, as well as in HangTime Magazine and The Lemonade Stand Magazine.




Southeast Hip Hop Magazine:  Have you considered writing a book of poetry, or some type of project showcasing your true talents and gifts?
Darrell Herbert: I actually have considered writing a book of poetry, or some type of project showcasing my true talents and gifts.  This was actually brought to my attention when a friend of mine suggested that I write a book about my life.  There's a lot that I can go into, but, you be the judge of that. 


Southeast Hip Hop Magazine:  You also write songs too, who are some of the artists that you've worked with so far?
Darrell Herbert: I have worked with artists such as B.R.E, James Brown, SIRR, and there are others. 




Southeast Hip Hop Magazine:  How would you describe yourself as a songwriter?
Darrell Herbert: I would have to describe myself as a person with zero filter, and I understand the beauty in simplicity.


Southeast Hip Hop Magazine:  What's the difference between writing poems and writing lyrics?
Darrell Herbert:  For me, writing poetry is about being more blunt and in your face.  Whereas writing song lyrics allows me to release more of my vulnerable side.





Southeast Hip Hop Magazine:  Who are some of your favorite recording artists from any genre of music?
Darrell Herbert: Some of my favorite recording artists are Rosangelica Lopez, Wombman, The Tree Lady, Angeline Sol, Last Dinosaurs, Animal Collective, Panda Bear, Sol Stones, Darrell Herbert, Bob Marley, Janis Joplin, Bonnie "Prince" Billy, Michael Jackson, Jim Morrison, Alexisonfire, Paramore, Egypt Central, From Autumn To Ashes, My Chemical Romance, Nonpoint, and Kurt Cobain, just to name a few. 


Southeast Hip Hop Magazine:  Is there anything else in this interview that you would like to plug or mention?
Darrell Herbert: I can by found on Facebook at Darrell Herbert. My Facebook page is Darrell Herbert. I can be found on Instagram at tales_life. My Tumblr is darrellherbert, and my Vimeo is Darrell Herbert.

PhLi Cargo - Stiff Arm Music Video and








 
Tell Me About PhLi Cargo….
PhLi Cargo aka Anthony Love was born December 21 on the south side of Chicago. PhLi Cargo is the most organic artist in the game today and his goal is to NOT put out fake music or represent anyone or anything fake for that matter. His plan is to bring the South Side of Chicago to life. Renegade!


Why should I become a fan of PhLi Cargo? 
If you like authentic food, you would go to an authentic restaurant. If you want organic music, you listen to PhLi Cargo. There’s nothing fast food about my sound. This is my craft, and I love it. I take my time, and I put out quality music.
What is your long-range objective?
To open doors. Everyone deserves a real chance. I want to create outlets for me, my family, and other people. I’m doing just that through my music.
How has your education prepared you for your career?
Knowledge is power. It’s not the institution, its the education. I guess you could say I stole a lot of knowledge, but everything you want to know is somewhere out there. At what cost are you willing to pay to get it?


Are you a team player? 
I talk about giving an assist in a lot of my rhymes because I like to see others make it. To me it’s more gratifying to help the team win. I can’t imagine or believe I did it alone, "only WE shall overcome".

Interview with Blakk North (The Lyrical Truthologist)



Southeast Hip Hop Magazine recently sat down with rising Ohio based emcee, Blakk North AKA The Lyrical "Truthologist".  In this in-depth, one on one interview Blakk North talks about his new album Creation, the types of subjects he tackles in his music and more! Read all about what he has to say in this interview below.  






Southeast Hip Hop Magazine:  How are you doing Blakk North, are you ready for this interview?
Blakk North:  Yes



Southeast Hip Hop Magazine:  Why do you call yourself Blakk North?
Blakk North:   Blakk North comes from the idea of ones journey inward to knowledge of self through the Creator. The North part is me heading upward toward the mind/ brain thus using the energy of the Creator to open the spiritual/ third eye to see the truth of the Creator.  Blakk is name of the apprentice who learns the ways of the Creator.



Southeast Hip Hop Magazine:  You are from Ohio, how is the hip hop scene where you are from?
Blakk North:  The scene here exist but has no real outlets. Plus artist nor people stick together in support of each other.  This makes it hard to have a successful career unless you promote outside of the city.  This we call the Jesus Theory meaning if you can't get love at home go else where.



Southeast Hip Hop Magazine:  The lead single to your current album Creation is titled "Freedom", for those that may have not heard the single yet how would you describe it?  What is the single about?
Blakk North:   Freedom express the cries of people looking to be free from hatred, fear, pain, sorrow, separation, divide, and manipulation.  It's about standing together as one race....THE HUMAN RACE....WITH THE CREATOR LEADING THE WAY...





Southeast Hip Hop Magazine:  What are your thoughts on all this police brutality going on in America on young black men?
Blakk North:  I believe we need to teach our youth not to express themselves all over the Internet media holding guns.  Posting videos talking about what they going to do to people if they come to their hood and so on.  This doesn't make cops right in shooting first and asking questions later. Every person should be held accountable for their actions just like with any job you work at.  However, until we as a people commit to unity and stop our hatred for ourselves and for others nothing will change.  We must stop trying define each others cultures and learn from each other.  Thus building relationships that advance us toward peace and intellectual upliftment.




Southeast Hip Hop Magazine:  You touch on a lot of heavy issues in your music, what are some of the topics and subjects you tackle in your songs?
Blakk North:  I touch on fathers who try to be fathers but are being messed over by woman who use the children to hurt the fathers.  I speak on finding peace within yourself through the Creator and realizing we are all one.  I talk about Karma and how it can hit you in ways you didn't expect and have negative consequences.





Southeast Hip Hop Magazine:   How would you describe the overall feel of your current project Creation?
Blakk North:  The overall feel of the album is to teach a person that you are not alone in your struggles.  However, this is how you can over come it through the help of the Creator.


Available to purchase on CD BABY


Southeast Hip Hop Magazine:   Who did you work with for this album?
Blakk North:  I work with producers SS Traxxx, Mung Parker, Eliot Slaughter, Vs Pro, JC Chino (Riff Artist) and Metal Band - DemonShifter. On the artist side Tony J. Collins(Vocalist DemonShifter), Skool, Jillian Brooks (Singer), Ms. Dee Dee Vernell (Singer), Ja` Meze Latrail (Singer), AfroSoul (Rap), Meche` (Background Singer), Jazmyn (Background Singer), Shamon (Rap), Mista Swift (Rap), Moezart (Rap), Alyssa, and G.L. Davis.





Southeast Hip Hop Magazine:  Who would you like to work with in the future?
Blakk North:  I would like to with anyone who has a great sound and is looking to be on some truthful music.





Southeast Hip Hop Magazine:   What are your favorite songs from Creation?  In your opinion what are some of the highlights?
Blakk North:   Creation is my favorite but I love  them all. Highlights of the album is the songs that relate to the everyday struggles of people everywhere.




Southeast Hip Hop Magazine: What plans do you have for the rest of 2016?
Blakk North:  To keep spreading the word about this album.






Southeast Hip Hop Magazine:  Is there anything you would like to plug?  Any shout outs?
Blakk North:  Please check out my website at www.blakknorth.us and spread the word about what you hear on this album even if you don't buy it. So we can change the world together.  Shout out to everyone who put this album together and to those who spread the word. However, the greatest shout out to the Creator who believed in me and strengthen me every step of the way.
