Rhymefest spoke with Blender magazine about his debut album ‘Blue Collar’, devoted to underdogs like him. “I see a lot of artists doing what I call poverty pimpin’,” he explained. “They talk about drug dealing and strip clubs, but not about the mom who’s hooked on crack or the girl who strips because she was molested. Those are stories I was put here to tell.”
