We had the good fortune of connecting with Slator Blacc and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Slator, how do you think about risk?
I believe it’s simple. There is no reward without the risk. It’s like trying to get on a skateboard and thinking you’re land a kick flip on your first try. It just doesn’t work like that. You’re gonna fall at least 100 times before you can even get two feet on the bolts. I’ve sacrificed so much just to be able to be in the position I’m in today and I’m still mashing. The grass is greener when you truly believe it is, not because someone said it was. I think that’s a journey you have to travel yourself to see and experience. Fear is merely a illusion in our existence.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Well I’m the creator of Live Great Die Awesome. A creative safe haven for those that seek artistic freedom. The thing about us is that we’re not the typical “music label” we plan on taking on every medium of art such as: architecture, dance, composition, film, literature, design fashion etc. We want to be a force upon that and cultivate a world for these same creatives to build their own universe. There are no rules to any of this shit. At all.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Ok first we’d have to slide to Mr. Leno’s on 83rd and McDowell Rd. Off top that’s some of the best Mexican food you can get on the westside. Then I’ll take them all the way to 59th Ave and Olive to Ms. Dorseys and get the 2 piece catfish and chips. After that we’d stop at Loco Style Grindz for that top tier Hawaiian BBQ off of 16th st and Roosevelt. Those my favorite spots foreal.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Yeah, luv to West Phoenix. Luv to my day ones and family. Luv to black people around the globe and beyond. Luv to life cause we truly take it for granted out here. It’s Live Great Die Awesome. It’s universal. Luv and Light.
