As you may have guessed after listening to Brenk Sinatra’s masterpiece Gumbo II (Pretty Ugly), he’s not a man of many words. But hey, what do you need rap for when you got the best beats around? We took our chance and asked our favourite producer a few questions, and even though he stayed quite tight-lipped we got what we wanted. Some of the answers don’t come as a surprise; we probably all agree on J Dilla when it comes to the most influential people in hip-hop, and most of us are at one when it comes to beer and ketchup. To be honest, though, we’ve never heard of Gilbert Einaudi and he’s definitely worth checking out.
