We had the chance to conduct an interview with Pittsburgh native emcee Palermo Stone. His answers did not disappoint. Check out WhyNotOnDemand’s second interview ever published below.
- WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT BEING AN EMCEE?
– I like the connections I feel with people at my shows. Like when a song or lyric hits them in a way where they react with real genuine emotion. Yeah that’s my shit.
- WHAT DO YOU LIKE LEAST ABOUT BEING AN EMCEE?
– Ummm really just the perceptions, like everybody think I’m rich or like I don’t get invited to the same places I used to because people think “im above it” or “too busy” but really life is so regular hahaha
- HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN RAPPING?
– I’ve been taking it serious for like 5 years but I started rapping in like 07 … Just messing around with my homies making goofy ass jams about anything. Then The Come Up Boys & Mac Miller really made me take it more serious in like 2010.
- IF YOU COULD GO BACK IN TIME, WHEN WOULD TRAVEL TO AND WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO YOUR YOUNGER SELF?
– I’d probably just go to a point when I didn’t understand my potential like 08 or some shit. Like I was just doing whatever hahah & I’d probably just be like “yo wake the fuck up, you are good as hell at rapping, stop bullshitting you idiot” Hahaha or something more harsh
- HOW HAS YOUR SOUND CHANGED SINCE YOUR EARLY DAYS OF MAKING MUSIC?
– I’m just making the music I like to hear. I always did that for the most part. I’ve definitely had other people around to help put the albums together. I do like 3 times the tracks I have to for a project and we just put it together but now I’m just having fun & just going with the flow a little more.
- WHO ARE YOUR MUSICAL HEROES?
– The usual names really … Jigga, Nas, Big. East Coast rappers for the most part. When I first started rapping I listened to mad Lox shit. So Kiss, Sheek and Styles P – I just rock with the stories and how NY rappers told them.
- WHAT QUALITIES MAKE YOU RESPECT A FELLOW EMCEE?
– Ummm honesty, transparency & creativity really. I love hearing that vulnerability in the bars.
- WHAT DO YOU DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?
– I just be drinking and smoking like anyone else. I don’t really be having tons of spare time. I have two kids so they keep me busy. Other than that I’m locked in working on every angle of this culture. I do hoop though. I’m nice out there on that hardwood. Pause.
- WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SHOW ON TV, AND WHY?
– Currently on TV, probably like The Daily Show with Jon Stewart or any of those shows. I just have a thing for “serious comedy” – like I enjoying hearing world news in a way where I’m not wanting to blow my brains out digesting it. The world is fucked but it’s nice to smirk at it from time to time.
- WHEN ARE YOU COMPLETELY SATISFIED WITH YOUR WORK?
– Naw, I’m the type to never be satisfied. I’ve made and currently make amazing music that reaches people and changes lives but that’s what im suppose to do. It’s what I was born to do. I’m never content or satisfied. I’m THAT guy.
- WHAT DOES THE WORD “SUCCESS” MEAN TO PALERMO STONE?
– Success is happiness for my loved ones. I experience a lot of pain directly and indirectly. I see struggle and pain. Once I can help. I’ll feel successful. My main focus is not having my kids grow up in poverty like I did.
- WHAT IS THE FIRST SONG YOU EVER REMEMBER HEARING?
– Oh geeze, I don’t know. I can remember the first time I fell in love with hip-hop. I was like 7 or 8. It was 96 or 97 & I heard Reasonable Doubt for the first time. I heard the intro & the way it came on & I was really listening & Jay painted the picture so vividly I just fell in love with the language of hip hop.
- WHAT MUSIC ARE YOU LISTENING TO LATELY?
– Just random shit. Mindless music really. Young Thug, Rich Homie, Future, Drake, Big Sean, K Camp. I actually love everything right now haha hip-hop is in an amazing place.
- WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE ALBUM BY ANOTHER ARTIST?
– Reasonable Doubt is my favorite album ever.
- WHAT SONG OF YOURS ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF? WHY?
– Honestly it’s probably a song I never put out because I feared the world would know too much. Every song holds a piece of my story so they all mean the world to me. I couldn’t pick one.
- WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING IF YOU WEREN’T A MUSICIAN?
– Idk really. I’m really not extremely talented at anything else. I spent my whole adult life so far getting great at the craft but I’d have to be in a field that would yield a large financial outcome or really helped the world in a positive way.
- HAVE YOU EVER WRITTEN ANYTHING AND THEN DECIDED NOT TO SHARE IT? IF SO, WHY?
– All the time. Some things are too personal man. I give so much of myself with this music shit. Like the songs aren’t made up. It’s all real. I wish I had an imagination. Haha I’m just telling my truths. So it’s draining. I’m extremely private outside of rap. So it’s hard to give things away.
- WHAT IS THE MISSION STATEMENT OF RARE NATION?
– It’s changed over the years. But really man it’s just a hub where people are empowered to be themselves. Be an individual because your dreams are beautiful even if they are impossible. It’s a land for the dreamer. A place to not be alone.
- IF YOU HAD TO PICK ANOTHER GENRE OF MUSIC TO MAKE WHAT GENRE WOULD IT BE? WHY?
– I would be some type of weird singer… Like in a band maybe… Like Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros … Just because people connect spiritually to shit like that. Like out of body experiences that rap just doesn’t have on people.
- WHAT’S NEXT FOR PALERMO STONE?
– More of the things that make me happy, less of the bad. So just continuing to bring awesome music and events. I don’t really have a plan like I used to. It’s all in God’s hand. I just pray and create now a days.
- WHAT DOES A PRODUCTIVE DAY IN PALERMO STONE’S LIFE CONSIST OF?
– Productivity is all relative… Half this shit is mental so as long as I can think and express my ideas it’s a productive day. I’m up early in general any given day so just not wasting my day just sitting around. Living. I just like to live and experience things.
