#READ Exclusive Interview w/ @hrmiggo producer @ghettogovt NJ General @sneakvandel


You may remember the first interview I did with Sneak almost a year ago when he first became a part of GGO. Sneak has since had lots of new & exciting things happening so I figured it was time for an update!

QTP: Hello Sneak once again!

SV:  Hello Queen (pretends that he doesn’t talk to you 80 times a day)!

QTP: When we did your first interview, you had just joined GGO. Since then, you have become our New Jersey Chapter General and your chapter has done an incredible amount of work for HRMI and GGO including significant graphic contributions (which includes the official GGO Chapter Seals), commercials, as well as production. Can you talk a little about who’s in your Chapter & what you guys have been doing collectively?

SV: Of course!  The NJ Chapter (The Armory) is comprised of 5 current members that each serve a different purpose.  You have my brother Optimus Prime who serves as a graphic artist for GGO.  He is the one responsible for the majority of the graphics you see within GGO lately.  He has done our seals, album covers, promo’s, logo’s and t-shirt designs.  More recently he is in talks with Killah Priest for a new logo that will be used for Priest’s new run of t-shirts.  Next you have Scorcese who serves as a director and photographer.  He is responsible for the Ghetto Govt. Officialz USA mixtape commercial that circulated at its release.  Currently he is gearing up for the video shoot for the first single off my upcoming mixtape called “Run Harder” featuring TMF (Trife Diesel, Tommy Whispers and Kryme Life).  Also we have my long time friend Canil 1000 who serves as a graffiti artist and illustrator.  He is responsible for the dope character of myself that you featured in the last interview.  Recently he designed a SUPER SICK cover for Hell Razah’s – Renaissance Child 2 : Return of the Renaissance.  Lastly our newest member Dredz who serves as a blogger and runs the hip-hop enthuisist website  He will serve internet bullhorn for GGO.  This is my team and we are ALWAYS ready to get our hands dirty.  WINGZ UP ARMORY!

QTP: For those that don’t know, Sneak is the executive producer for my solo-debut project “Rise of the Phoenix” and has been putting together a project of his own that every true lover of hip-hop is going to want to own. Can you talk about your project how it started, who’s on it, etc?

SV: This project has been on my mind for some time now and I was always waiting for the opportune time to put it into action.  So on New Years Day after a conversation with QTP we decided that now was the time.  I bounced ideas off her and Razah and we fell in love with the idea and the green light was given.  The mixtape will be a throwback to the 90’s and will bring back that era’s sound of classic boom bap, gritty hip-hop.  All the beats on the mixtape are produced by myself and will feature a gamut of true emcee’s.  To date (cause it’s still in the works) I have features from Hell Razah, Buddha Monk, Rustee Juxx, Judah Priest, Automatic Greatness, Queen the Prophet, Killah Priest, The GZA, Inspectah Deck, Wu-Tang Clan, TMF (Trife Diesel, Tommy Whispers and Kryme Life), Jurny BIG & Peace 586, Scripture, George Young and Boss Bellz.  I am also talking with Souls of Mischief, Young Dirty Bastard and Prodigal Sunn to feature.  And if all goes well DJ Evil DEE and I will complete our deal for him to host the project.

QTP: Let’s talk about our project! I know that although you’re excited about your own, mine is your favorite because I am your favorite LOL. Seriously, for other producers (and go easy on me) what’s it like to work with me?

SV: You are a royal pain in the …naw I’m joking.  Working with Queen on this project has been a blast.  You have full vision of the direction you want and you relay your creative ideas clearly so it’s easy to visualize.  I feel like my answer might be bias because we work so closely together on everything else GGO that it’s only natural that we would be creative musically together.  But I will say that there is nothing vague about you and what you want.  You come across more than clear on what you like and need for your work.  All in all working with you is fun and a pleasure (graciously bows to the Queen).

QTP: For those that don’t know, (you can google or YouTube it) there has been a lot of press behind the fact that the iPhone Siri (ios7) was giving “predictions” I guess you would call them about certain dates. When asked “What is January 13, 2014?” Siri replied “birth of the Prophet” and as we know I of course released my latest single “Standing Ovation” (produced by GGO RI member Miverson). When asked “What is July 27, 2014?” Siri replies “the gates of Hades open”which of course is the date of Sneak’s project release and when Siri is asked “What isSeptember 3, 2014?” Siri replies “closing the gates of Hades” which we now know will be the release of my project produced by Sneak. The coordination of these dates and projects was a product of the obvious genius between Sneak & myself LOL. Do you want to expound on this?

SV: It serves two fold.  On one hand what a brilliant marketing idea that we established by doing this.  Second the events coincide with the ideas and theology behind us as artist in the industry.  For me releasing my project on the “The day the gates of Hades open” only makes sense.  Why?  A project so good…why wouldn’t the devil want to stop it?

QTP: GGO & HRMI are not your only affiliations. I actually got to see you preform some months back at a show with Buddah Monk & Juah Priest (Wu-Tang Clan Brooklyn Zu/ Zu Bullies). The track you preformed with Priest, appeared on Ghetto Govt’s last MXTP (released Election Day) USA {Under Seraphim Authority} volume 1. You are also now an official BKZU member as well. Can you talk about how that happened?

SV: Judah Priest and I have been friends for over 15 years and that led to me being featured on that record.  Also, Judah Priest had been talking to Buddha about me for months before that show.  That show was actually the first time I met everyone (Raz, You, Auto, Scripture, Buddha and the Zu Bulliez).  After the show Buddha invited me to crash at his crib for the night.  We stayed up talking and building till like 4AM that night.  I had to catch the train at like 7AM to head to NY then NJ so when I left he was sleeping.  A little later I text him to thank him for opening his home to me.  It was then he told me that I was family and that I was officially Brooklyn Zu/Zu Bulliez.  Buddha is that dude man…a good brother…I got a lot of love for him.

QTP: Sneak you’ve been a professional recording artist & producer for quite sometime but you are also a huge long-time Wu-Tang Clan fan. What’s it like now that you’re a part of Hell Razah’s GGO and the BKZU?

SV: It’s real dope.  To be associated with the group that inspired you and helped you form your own musical persona is amazing.  I just appreciate everything Razah, yourself, Buddha and Judah have done for me.  I’m at home with GGO/BKZU and I am Wu till I die.

QTP: What other projects are you working on? Who else are you working with? What can folks expect from you over the net year and your chapter?

SV: Besides my project and the one I am doing with you?  I am actively producing for Hell Razah, I have to get to Buddhas to get on the Zu Bulliez album,  I produced a few tracks for Judah Priest upcoming Dark Ages album, and I have other things in the pot.  As for my chapter…we will continue to grow and supply GGO and the world with quality work.

QTP: How can folks get in touch with you? Where can they hear your music and hear your beats?

SV: They can email me at, hit me up on facebook, I also have Twitter @sneakvandel and Instagram Sneakvandel.  I have a Soundcloud but I haven’t updated it in a long time because as soon as I make a beat it gets snatched up by someone before I can post it.

QTP:Is there anything else you want to add?

SV: Yeah…be on the look out because ISH is about to get real!  You’ll see this year when I’m in your face screamin WINGZ UP!

QTP: Thanks Sneak! I’m sure I’ll call you later lol

Exclusive Interview with HELL RAZAH @razah_rubiez GGO ALBUM PRODUCER @drgproductionz

Dr g black logo



QTP:  Wingz Up Dr. G!


Dr G: Wingz up and thanks for the love and support  .


QTP: For those that don’t know, please introduce yourself, tell them where you’re from and what it is that you do.


Dr G: I am Dr G from u.k manchester been in the game 15 years working as a dj and a street rep for sony music  and then for def jam/island for a good friend dj semtex (bbc 1xtra/defjam uk) . but now i am a full time hip hop producer .


QTP: Personally, I am a HUGE fan of your beats as you are well aware … LOL When did you start producing?


Dr G: Thank you and i greatful from the chance for u even to hear them. But yeah started producing 2002 by sitting and watching my homie at the time making beats.At the time i was starting too rap a bit after a about 5 years of djing around country i wanted to do more and never felt like djing was a nuff.So me and my homie formed a crew and started making tracks and putting out small ep’s in my city .People was instreaded because i was kinda already known from the djing and the street work too .But after making a solo album on my own in 2008 i was more into the beats then the rap side of I have a very angry loud rap flow so some people love it some hated it . But always got good feback on the beats. At the time myspace was a big site and helpful so i used that to help promote my 2008 release “LAST DAYZ”.


QTP: When did you meet Razah and how did you become involved with Ghetto Govt?


Dr G: Well i did get hell razah on a joint back in the day from my homie St laz (brownsville pottersfield) i was sending laz mad beats in the days of myspace and he was laceimg my beats and sending them back with some dope features too (Agallah/Boot camp click/shazbazz the disicple/Hell razah) that’s how we meet .But a few years after on sound cloud razah hit us on a comment.So i hit him back asking if he was cool with me sending him some jointz over.Some i just made him some fresh shit.Plus lets not forget that when i was young and listening to hiphop hell razah is apart of my youth because i was into any thing wu tang so i never missed a album .


QTP: Who else have you worked with or are you working with right now?

Dr G: I ‘ve worked with a good few .Got some links from st laz he helped me out a lot as far as getting my joints on hot 97 and power 105 plus features. I also  produced a joint for shyheim back in 2008 that i on the album last dayz i mention earlier . So ever since then i did joints with likes of Canibus/Inspectah deck/D 12/Hussein fatal/Outlawz/Rap p from queens/Twisted insane/Outterspace/Yukmouth/Kool g rap many more from different states in america. But uk wise i did with some of the best out here inculeding shotty horroh who is a real big rap and battler artists.


QTP: Dr. G, the Ghetto Govt album is mostly produced by you and I think it’s fair to say it’s one of the most anticipated albums of 2014. This album is featuring Hell Razah himself, his artists on Hell Razah Music, Inc. as well as various GGO artists. Are you excited to be the main producer involved with this project?


Dr G: Most def . I am exclusive producer on that joint so yeah i excited. But razah is so underatted if u ask me. He still keep it real with that deep 90’s era of hiphop vibe.And is a great lyricest And he is a man with a good heart too. But people might not see what he is tryin to do with GGO but it covers all side of the world.Due time it will be a take over movement.


QTP: What are you currently working on music and otherwise? Any upcoming projects to watch out for?


Dr G: A producer album similar to what alchemist/maro polo/pete rock does .All american artists my production. The theme is like britton and u.s coming together to form a coalition that’s the name i am calling the album COALITION (Nov 2013 release).Aiming to get some of the biggest names in hip hop on it with a lot of the underground up and coming artists too.


QTP: Is there any artists that you haven’t worked with that you’d like to work with in the near future?


Dr G: Oh fo sho mainly artist that i was listenig too when i was young (Onyx/smif and western/wu tang/black moon/nine. many more )and fan of hip hop .As i am still a fan i still bump mad albums and people must  think just because u are artist u can’t be a fanof other hiphop acts .But people need to go back to being fans. But artist i would love to work with would be :Redman /reks/saigon/prodigy/tragedy kadafi/ra the rugged man/Roc Marciano/Beanie Sigel/Ill bill.


QTP: How can folks find you via social media or get in contact with you?

Exclusive Interview with HELL RAZAH @razah_rubiez GHETTO GOVT member @sneakvandel

QTP: Peace Sneak!

QTP: For those of you that don’t know, Sneak Vandel is one of my new favorite people (mostly because he’s nuts) but also happens to be a brilliant producer and an official Ghetto Govt member. Sneak, tell the people about yourself, because you do more then just produce.

SNEAK: Glad you added “brilliant” in there or I wasn’t gonna answer this question. Lol

I’m a former gospel artist and that’s where I started my hip-hop career. I put a few records out in the late 90’s and early 2000’s. After a going thru some family things I decided to retire from that aspect of life. After a brief hiatus I started producing to ease my way back into hip-hop. I did a few local albums with some emcees from around my way and mastered my craft. To date I’m a producer,emcee, graphic artist and loyal member of GGO.

QTP: We have all seen the Wu-Tang tattoo, who are some of the Clan affiliates you have worked with in the past and are working with now?

SNEAK: The tattoo is homage to Wu because of their influence on me since 36 chambers. And the fact that they are and always will be the greatest group in hip-hop. I’ve recently just started working with Clan affiliates so my résumé isn’t THAT extensive. I was featured on Judah Priest Sleepy Hollow album on World War 4. I’ve contributed 5 or 6 tracks to his new album also. I know I have work I need to do for Buddha Monk and BKZU. I’m just taking it as it comes ya know…

QTP: I possibly may have heard a rumor that you are creating some sort of masterpiece beat for a collab track with Wu-Tang Affiliate Judah Priest (Brooklyn Zu/ Ghetto Govt) and the infamous Queentheprophet.  Can you confirm or deny such a rumor?

SNEAK: A tru master never gives up his secrets. But it is possible that those wheels are turning. Lol

QTP: You’re working on some things with Razah as well right?

SNEAK: Yeah me and Razah have been building and I have been constructing some heaterz for dude. He’s always been one of my favorite Clan brethren. So I’m excited to be collaborating with him. And I look to do a lot more with him in the future. WINGZ UP!

QTP: What other projects are you working on music & otherwise?

SNEAK: Right now my focus is on Razah and what he needs to complete his work. I don’t like to muddy the waters and take on too many projects at once. I like to focus on an artist so I can deliver quality music to them. Too many cat JUST put out whatever they can, very few put out quality.

QTP: To-date what has been your most memorable project?

SNEAK: My first studio album. It was with a group called Raiderz of the Lost and the album was Prepare for the Spillage. It was at that point that I was able to do music full tilt. Touring was dope and I met a lot of chill people. Plus it was my first world wide distributed album. Side note: that was when I met Judah Priest also.

QTP: That will change after we work together though right?

SNEAK: Depends on if you keep giving me a hard time. Lol

QTP: Is there anyone you really want to work with that you haven’t already? (besides me of course)

SNEAK: I like how most of these questions somehow involve you too. Lol!  Guess that’s why you’re the Queen.

I’d love to do work with Killah Priest, Gza, RA the Rugged Man, and any of the core WTC members. I’d also like to do work for a Sunz of Man reunion album (hint hint).

QTP:  Anything else you want folks to know?

SNEAK: I’m white…

Sike nah….

No really…I’m a white dude.
