Mr. Cheeks At The 2nd Annual Hip Hop For Healthcare Benefit Concert

Contributed Anonymously:

Currently, the music industry has a policy of not insuring artists on their record label. Medicaid and other programs such as those providing Child Health Plus and Family Health Plus offer insurance only to very low-income people. For instance, if you make $10,000 a year as a single adult you are not eligible for any of the above health plans.

The Definitive Take

Christopher O’Connor of the Dallas Observer caught up with C-Rayz Walz to talk about being on Def Jux and touring with other acts on the indie hip-hop label. The decision to join the label’s roster, he says, was an easy one once El-P approached him after a show. “Everybody here is an individual,” he says. “Each person is unique. It’s not easy to digest. Most of the great albums on the Def Jux label, I didn’t even like them at the beginning.”
