Pearl Harba Interview by VIP SOUNDLAB & Zaahir " The Planet X Ambazzador "
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
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.
