Pearl Harba Interview by Zaahir " The Planet X Ambazzador "

 

June 24 , 2014

Zaahir :

 

Title: " State  of  The Gully Union " 

 

Zaahir :What was the first Hip Hop song you heard?

 

Pearl Harba :Run Dmc - "King of Rock"

 

Zaahir :How did the name Pearl Harba come to be?

 

Pearl Harba :I was originally called Stash Burna this was real 

 

early when I first started and would just spit verses in cyphers . 

 

I wasn't really happy with the name so one day I wrote a verse 

 

and said  " I'm Brooklyn's version of Pearl Harbor " I was really 

 

feeling the line so I stuck with it and never looked back.

 

Zaahir :What puts you in the zone when you create a song?

 

Pearl Harba :A lot of times I like to be secluded so I can get in 

 

my zone. First I'll listen to some great music , new , old , known , 

 

unknown from HipHop to whatever . Then I tell myself that's 

 

your competition that's what your up against all that great 

 

music that came before you . So I remind myself to never half 

 

ass it because it won't stand the test of time . Lastly I hear beat 

 

after beat to I find one that feels right like I belong on it.

 

Zaahir :The G Spot Gully Show is quickly blowing up,How did it 

 

come to be?

 

Pearl Harba :I believe it's a combination of things . First I would 

 

say that we're very dedicated to our show and very honest with 

 

our listeners . We're the same people on or off the air there's no 

 

gimmicks we pull no punches and always speak our mind . And I 

 

feel our audience appreciate's that and can relate . If we make 

 

mistakes we own up to it and never pretend to be perfect . I 

 

think people are tired of all the phonieness going on and like to 

 

" Keep it Gully ". So if we're comical , serious or informative no 

 

matter what we keep it real . Second I would have to thank Da 

 

Beatminerz Evil Dee and Mr. Walt for giving us a platform and 

 

believing in us . Threw Beatminerz Radio we've garnered a very 

 

strong and loyal following that we're very grateful for. 

 

Zaahir :Whats your favorite music instrument?

 

Pearl Harba : I would have to say the drums because I've seen 

 

my nephew Chehpo get busy on them it's very dope to see.

 

Zaahir :Do you have any up and coming projects?

 

Pearl Harba :Yes I have a mixtape I'm rapping up no Title yet , 

 

and I'm working on my first official release called Limitless . But 

 

I'm very secretive of my projects so stay tuned for more info on 

 

these next 2 works of mine I'm very excited about them.

 

Zaahir :How did you meet The Beatminerz?

 

Pearl Harba :It's a long story that go's back many years . It 

 

started when a friend of mine named Diverse introduce me to a 

 

D.J. Named Bazarro. When I first met Baz we hit it off and 

 

became friends we was both promoting something and had a 

 

good vibe . Fast forward a few years me and G.Pos started a 

 

show called Da G Spot . We didn't have a regular DJ for the first 

 

episode so for the second episode I invited 2 friends over who 

 

were DJ's / Producers as guest . The first one was my friend an 

 

early mentor Whitebeats the second was Baz . The show went 

 

great and we invited Baz to come back the following week and 

 

he became Da G Spots first DJ . Later on he invited Da 

 

Beatminerz over to do there own show and I met Evil and Walt 

 

we hit off as well and have been rocking ever since.

 

Zaahir :What inspires you? 

Pearl Harba :I would have to say pretty much the ups and 

 

downs of life . I try to put as much of myself in my music as 

 

possible . So whether it's a good a bad day I use it as inspiration 

 

to express myself threw music .

 

Zaahir :How can people stay up to date with what your doing?

 

Pearl Harba :You can find me on any platform by searching 

 

Pearlharba . For example on twitter it's @pearlharba on the 

 

gram search Pearlharba and so on . To see me live tune in to Da 

 

G Spot Gully show every tues. 6-8pm est. Time on 

 

BeatminerzRadio.com

 

Zaahir :Have you ever made beats before?

 

Pearl Harba :No I haven't but I've met a lot of dope producers 

 

and respect there craft.

 

Zaahir :Where do you wanna see Hip Hop 10 years from now?

 

Pearl Harba :Well I would like to see all the artist who are truly 

 

creative and original win and get noticed . It's a shame that a lot 

 

of great artist never get heard because they don't have a large 

 

budget or know someone connected in the right places . Let's 

 

take it back to great records  getting broken by dope D.J.'s and 

 

leave the politics to the politicians.
