Interview with Mark NuYork

I had the chance to talk with hip-hop master Mark NuYork. You can buy his new single "We Made It" or check out "If You Could Understand."

Who do you respect in the rap game right now?

I respect artists like Lil' Wayne for his work ethic, Jay Z, I like newcomer Drake, gotta say Nas, Biggie, Pac, these guys help pave the way. Kanye West, Ludacris, and Common of course.

How do you perceive the opportunities for up-and-coming artists?

To answer this next question I see a lot of opportunities for new artists like myself, especially with the internet right now theres so much ways to get out, shout out to Soulja Boy he was smart to utilize the internet to get known.

Where are you from, and what was it like for you growing up?

Mark NuYork grew up in Brooklyn, New York, east Flatbush. It wasn't easy still not, currently I'm in Florida now.

You once said, "When I get paper, I'll become the hood's savior." How are you going to help people with your success?

One thing about achieving success is you never forget to give back. Not only where you come from but other countries as well, its so many unfortunate people out there. First off though is family my moms gotta get first.

Any questions I should have asked you?

You can let people know I'm thankful I'm around to see a black president. I am on facebook, myspace, youtube, also people can buy my music on either amazon or itunes. New album coming out soon don't have a date yet.

I always want to share.

And when I share, I always end up with more.

Imagine that.

With this in mind, I want to share with you some of the greatest technologies that help make my life a joy on a daily basis.

The first is Television can not compare with this site, an endless selection of the most amazing videos in the world.

Secondly, is the death knell of newspapers. On a daily basis, users vote for the most pertinent and most fascinating stories from around the world, be they political, personal, or pictures that say more than a million words.

And finally, I have to share with you my newfound love of Indian culture.

The shakti mat which I use frequently always relieves the stress in my back, accrued from merciless games of basketball.

Indian spices helped me concoct a culinary delight tonight, a wonderful feast of squash, onion, cauliflower, carrot, potato, peanut, and green pepper cooked in olive oil, garam masala, cayenne pepper, turmeric powder, coriander powder, and cumin powder.

And where would I have learned to cook like this, were it not for the Krisna movement. When I first experienced Hare Krisna lunch on the UF campus, I was overjoyed.

I can not overstate the greatness of the vegetarian feasts they provide on a daily basis.

Hare Krisna.

Hare Bo.

Don't trust me.


I'm just a person, and people make mistakes.

If someone tells you something is the truth, you should ask, "Who's your source?"

Google everything, and triple-check, because while there a many different points of view, some people are well paid to deceive.

To that end, here is a list of places I frequent for reliable information.

Don't trust them either.
