Interview With Freaky Franz

MP3:Freaky Franz-Karl Malone

Freaky Franz aka Franz Lyons is a funny dude. The Columbus skateboarder will disappear for about a month. Then someone will slide you a fashion mag, and he will be modeling. Or you will catch wind he is on tour with Trapped Under Ice. Or He will just appear in a MIA/RYE RYE video.

Anyway, he currently has a local hit poppin’ with his song about getting that mail, Karl Malone.

I caught up with Franz just to soak in a little bit of the game.

How do you feel about these lames handcuffin?

I can’t call it man. I don’t mind it . But don’t cuff a girl who is supposd to be out here gettin it in. Then your just being a ball hog. Hit me on twitter i’ll set them straight @FREAKYFRANZ
If you are Karl Malone then who is John Stockon?

I would say my best friend and dj Cj b.k.a. Cornelieus Jackson (@cjtownsend88)

Do you really play with Utah Jazz on NBA Jam?

Na I’m a cavs fan BROWE but i mean I’m the mail man in real life

How did you end up in that MIA/Rye Rye “Sunshine” video?

It was the last few days of a new york trip and my friend AL hit me up and was there and said they wanted another black skateboarder and so we both went and Mia and Rye Rye thought we were cool so we all just hung out all day.

Freaky Franz performed “Karl Malone” at last month’s Get Right to 1000 plus. This isn’t pictured above. I actually don’t know where the hell that photo is from. I put it up there cause Lil Eric is in it behind Franz.
However, DW has Freaky Franz’s local hit “Karl Malone” available so your lame-ass can try to swag up before going out on NYE

Interview with Fool’s Gold’s Sammy Bananas


MP3:Kid Cudi, Kanye West, & Common-Make Her Say (Sammy_Bananas_Remix)

Sammy Banana’s is playing at Bristol Bar this Friday along with CJ Townsend, and DJ Dan from Paradise Garage. He puts out music on Fool’s Gold Records (A-trak, Kid Sister, Cool Kids etc). The New York Native dejays all-around the globe.

I met Sammy in the beginning of November. Dood booked Columbus’ CJ Townsend to play at Piano’s in the Lower East Side of Manhattan.
I was in the city, hanging out with Pat, and Mike of the Carney family
We met CJ and Lil Franz up at Piano’s because it was CJ’s 21st bday. (if you know me, ask me about me getting really drunk and stomping on a grown man’s feet, and trying to run his pocket because I was confused of his intentions and didn’t like how he looked in general)

Sammy played classic New York rap half the time, and house the other half.
CJ and Sammy sampled Gucci Mane’s adlib “Burr” “Burr”,and would press a button that would repeatedly make this adlib audible at random intervals whenever they felt like it.
Regardless of what music they were playing.
Be it Golded Era Hip Hop, House, New Jack Swing, Electro or Fidget R+B.

Even though we were drunk in NYC, it felt like we were in Columbus.

Sammy really likes R+B and New Jack Swing. He is huge fan of the 90’s. So I figured I’d quiz him on his preferences.

In Living Color or SNL with Chris Rock?
In Living Color. I like the Fly Girls.

Living Single or Family Matters?


Living Single was was the show that Friend’s appropriated for white people like Elvis and Family Matters had Urkel.
Definately didn’t watch Urkel.

Family Ties or Alf?
Alf. I’m fond of Aliens. I’m a a big XFIles fan.

Haha..perfect…Fresh Prince or Independence day
Independance Day is a good movie. But I’m going to go with Fresh Prince.

But Independence Day had aliens.
I said I like Indepedence Day. It is a good movie. But Fresh Prince captured the 90’s, Fresh Prince had juxtapositions that allowed for comedic events to transpire.
