Rap Basement: Is your upcoming album still gonna be called ‘Hot
Sauce’ and whats the kind of schedule with that?

That got misunderstood. My new album is gonna be called ‘Statlanta’. ‘Hot
Sauce’ is the name of the mix tape coming out volume 3 hosted by Eminem.
But my album will be called ‘Statlanta’..

Rap Basement: Most people stereotype other rappers.. Do you feel
you will be stereotyped the same way?

Stat Quo: I think most people stereotype everybody. People period,
not even the rappers, people in general..One thing, I’m not gonna put
me in any kind of category. But I try my hardest to stay away from that,
and just be me and create my own category.

Rap Basement: Alright what new do you bring the the hip hop community?

Stat Quo: I’m bringin’ me man. I don’t feel like no body like
me. Cus’ no body like Dre, and no body like Em he’s an individual. You
know what I’m sayin’.No body like me, I’m just another individual bringin’
my own attention to it something that everybody might like.

Rap Basement: Alright, I know that you did a song for the new
EA Game Fight Night. How did you get on there?

Stat Quo: A girl named Abby, she had an oppertunity where she
knew some people over there and she contacted my manager (Zeek), and I
guess she recommends the producers. And I was out there late and I went
over there in L.A. and did a song for them, and they liked it.

Rap Basement: I read that you have a degree in business.. Is
that true?

Stat Quo: Economics and International Business yeah..

Rap Basement: You alternatley decide to take the music route.
What made you change your mind?

Stat Quo: I had Scarface, was a very big part in that. Him (Scarface),
Indi Ecentrik, Jose Ecentrick and G Wallace. Those four people right there
played a major part in that cus’ they actually thought I had talent.

Rap Basement:So they pushed you more to music instead of following
a business?

Stat Quo: Nah instead of going to Law School. I went to you know
I graduated from college but, I just didn’t go to law school or whatever.

Rap Basement: What was the first thing you did after you got
signed to Aftermath?

Stat Quo: Well the first thing I did.. Let’s see I went to Disneyworld..The
first thing I did after signin’ with Shady Aftermath was I went out and
bought ‘Straight out of Compton’.. again.. Then I went out and bought
the ‘Marshall Mathers LP’.. I bought the First ‘Chronic’. The other first
thing I did, was went on a cd spree and sat down and listend to those
