Read part of interview below, full interview on Ameoba Website here.
Amoeblog: Its been two years since the last BPos release. How long did it take to make this album and how was the process?
Goodword: We actually started making this album over two years ago. We just weren’t sure exactly what we were doing. We were just trying to stay creative and just continued to make new songs while we were finalizing our last album, Pos Tapes: The Album. Some of these songs are [actually] older then that though. We had a couple in the vault that were hella rough but once we we revisited them and fine-tuned them, they were right up to date. Over the two years between releases we actually made way too many songs so it was really hard to narrow it down. We were really fond of a lot of the songs that got cut. But we came up with a criteria for choosing what tracks made the album. Basically songs that had any type of negative message in them didn’t make it. However there are a couple songs on here that might sound a little condescending toward certain people. But those songs made it because they were too good. And they were condescending toward negative individuals. And we all know, two negatives equal a positive, right?
Amoeblog: What is the one thing you would hope listeners take from listening to the new album?
Goodword: The idea is that people will dance and enjoy themselves the same way they would while listening to any type of rap music, but with this one, they might come across some new information they can take with them without realizing it. And they are gonna feel this positive vibration.
Amoeblog: Production wise how is this new album different from previous BPos productions?
Goodword: We just keep getting better in the studio. We are more efficient. So we use our time to the fullest. We’re up to our same old tricks of showing respect to a lot of our influences by referencing them through samples. I’m mostly proud of how we did it this time around tho. Production wise, this is our best work yet without a doubt.
Amoeblog: How much of a difference to the overall BPos vibe has the addition of new member Gyrl Ab’Strakt added?
Goodword: Sheba aka Gyrl Ab’Strakt definitely brought a whole new realm of creativity. Kinda opened a new avenue for us. It’s working out really well because lyrically we really need the female perspective for the topics we touch on. She plays her role in the group really well. Hopefully we can expand on that in future projects.

via ScratchedVinyl.com: “If you had no preconceived notions of the group BPos, you’d just think that this was some funky, good time hip hop with some emcees who could really spit. And that’s what @BPos is, first and foremost.”
