CRABZINABARREL.COM INTERVIEWS UCB

UCB2

Last night CrabzInBarrel.com attended a Welcome Home Party for our new hometown hero’s: UCB!  Here in the DMV, we’ve known about UCB for years.  But after serving as the house band for the MTV VMA’s last Sunday, we’re pretty sure UCB is going to be a household name.  After spending most of the year on Wale’s highly successful “Attention Deficit Tour” and being surrounded with megastars like Jay-Z, Lady Gaga, Kid Cudi, Pitbull and The All-American Rejects, UCB isn’t too good to come back home and hang with the people.  They came back, humble as ever and granted us the honor of an interview.

They gave us the inside scoop of the craziness that was the VMA’s (including what Jay-Z REALLY thought about Lil’ Mama!), what the band’s plans are in the future and how us CRABZ can make it out the barrel!  We were in a club, so the sound wasn’t great, but it was still an awesome interview.  Thanks guys!

Shouts to Byrd too, she really held it down!

El Solo Dolo: Why did you choose the name Greenspan? Why not brownspan, Purplespan, or Greyspan?

Greenspan: Art allows you to be creative with your style and identity…so Greenspan is who I am. Federal Reserve Music!

El Solo Dolo: What made you want to pursue a career as a rapper and How old were you when you first started writing?

Greenspan: I started taking this craft serious in 2003. I started writing years back… maybe 1995-96. I didn’t have it together then. I was just doin it, you feel me… I use to call myself ‘Raw Talent’…that would have went nowhere. lol

El Solo Dolo: What artists influence you?

Greenspan: AZ, UGK, Erykah Badu, Mos Def, Andre 3000…There are many more… For their passion and self awareness.
