A couple posts back I linked you up with The Sufakaterz latest free downloadable EP.
A couple days later, I came to find that Afiliated Clothing’s blog had the opportunity to interview them. Personally, I love reading the interviews that Afiliated puts out. They ask really good questions and I always come away feeling as if I got to know the artists that much better.
Hopefully, you got the opportunity to take a listen to the album. And if you did, you heard that these guys had a lot to say. Below are some Q’s and A’s that fill in the blanks as to who these guys are on a more personal level.
Sufferkaterz: IF YOU DONT KNOW ASK SOMEONE WHO DOES,OR JUST SAY IT REAL SLOW….
Afiliated: How did you guys meet?
Sufferkaterz: WE MET IN 7TH GRADE,BEEFING OVER AEROSOL
Afiliated: What do you feel like your bringing to the table with your new release, “Kill Yard?”
