Hope all is well! What is your philosophy on interludes on your records? I am loving the vibes from "Interlude I" and "Just Wanna Lil More" on Renegades right now, wish they were full songs! -Marques

i love giving people moments that are extra special and make people want "just a lil more" ;) the 'pino & mashi' interlude on tide's arising was a little of that and there was an even shorter one on that album too. in part they're inspired by larry dunn's interlude on Earth Wind & Fire's album That's The Way of The World... there's definitely some of that mixtape mentality to it too like a J Dilla mixtape where an ill beat might just play for 60 seconds. they're a chance for me to share some different flavors with the listeners :)
