In this episode of the Solecast I speak with my longtime friend Ceschi. I really can’t say enough good things about this guy, when my career was in the dumps his label had my back and brought me back from the dead… He has gone on to make some of my favorite music to come out of the indy rap scene and is a one of a kind performer blending rap, punk and folks into a unique and compelling package. In 2019 he is releasing a trilogy of records and then ending the “ceschi” monicker, so like our coastal island cities and marginal desert eco systems… catch it before its gone!
In this conversation we cover a lot of ground. We talk about his roots in the bay area, his motivations, his relationship to revolutionary politics and why he does what he does. We discuss how his experience in prison has made him a more empathetic person and he gets into his criticisms of the left, the right and these sick modern times. We talk about race, indie hip hop, Marxism, his label Fake Four and so much more. We close the interview with some live performances from his forthcoming projects.
his new record Sad Fad Luck is available at sadfatluck.com
