VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with Renz Young and Maal Himself
One of our contributors, Ben Slowey, is more than on top of the local music scene. In addition to his work for Breaking And Entering, he also hosts the Mr. Nice Guy podcast, an interview-based show that reaches out to Milwaukeeans for conversations about what motivates them. Many of these shows fittingly involve the local music scene, and we’ll be sharing some of them here as well.
For this episode, Ben sits down with Renz Young and Maal Himself. Renz dropped a ton of singles this year, including “DOA”, “Nothing Left”, “Demanding”, “M A N T R A.”, “Mantra Pt. 2”, “Waiting”, and his latest “What It Meant.” Maal dropped the song “96′ More or Less” and had his rollout for his late 2018 project “Wht Smmr” this year. He works with House of Renji. They discussed their origins in music, Maal’s takeaways from “Wht Smmr”, Renz’s catalog of songs, the old days of hip hop shows in Riverwest, and being told by your idols that you’re dope.
