we revisited the topic of Big Caz visiting Death Row and beating up Reggie Wright jr and taking the Tupac masters/ There is a police report of the incident and Big Caz was not mentioned as the guy who came with Damon Thomas. We also talked about OJ Simpson getting on Twitter.

I enjoyed that Vlad one. You got to really press him on a lot of common gripes people have with his channel and interview style.

Most people thought I asked some good questions, but there were a few hater comments from people that thought I was either jealous of Vlad or being a hater of Vlad.

sorry, but i don't like that guy. Vlad deserves every bit of scrutiny that he gets. his motives are questionable, at best. Vlad grew up in a practically all white suburb called Belmont, CA that has less than 1 percent black population but every interview he wants to ask questions about crack, bloods/crips, single mothers, etc. it's laughable when he tries to interject his opinion on these subjects that he has zero real-life experience with. he's a sheltered, protected hipster going through a mid-life crisis but he keeps playing with fire,setting people up to get indicted, and interviewing known snitches, if it catches up to him i won't feel sorry for him. he says he's a civilian and the rules don't apply to him, he profits off of black-on-black violence. but more relevant to our discussion, he's appropriated SG.com's interviewing style and subject matter without giving credit where it's due.

I can see how they felt that way, but I liked how you had the decency to ask him to his face and he seemed completely cool with being asked whatever.


Vlad gets on my nerves at time, sometimes he a little cringe with his questions and comments but I disagree with the ultra Vlad haters out there. I think he gets some good interviews and guests, and asks them about their life in chronological order.
Like he says, it’s not just a typical hip hop style interview with the same surface style questions you heard asked a million times.

Honestly I think some of the criticism he gets in his comments are down right stupid.

But there were times where he pissed me off, like when he sort of instigated something between Mr. Criminal and Bg Knoccout and Dresta.

He had said something like “ well I had Mr Criminal in here and he says the Southsiders run LA” then tries to get Bg and Dresta’s reaction. Like, c’mon that’s some instigating shit.

But the blame cant only be on Vlad when the guys being interviewed should know exactly what they’re saying is only going to stir up negativity too.

What bothers me is that he relys on stereo-types about gang members, crack cocaine and gang culture to influence the questions and most of the time when YOU ARE PAYING FOR AN INTERVIEW, the subject is inclined to answer that question.

Not all gang members put in work, not all gang members go on missions, not all gang members sold crack, but he constantly reinforces those stereo-types that I am try to dismantle.

Yeah I noticed that. He thinks it’s all about selling crack and all the stereotypical things he keeps asking.
