Heavy Gun Interviews Kait_Bee of Breathe Easy Live

Hey Heavy Gunners, we have not done an interview in a while so it’s time to pick that back up. Kait_Bee is a young blogger out of Pittsburg with an eye for indie hiphop, lets throw the Q/A gauntlet at her and see what she comes up with.

HG: So, how did your blog get its name (Breathe Easy Live Free)?
I actually saw the phrase somewhere a long time ago & it always stuck with me. It’s kind of always been a life-motto for me. When I first created my blog I didn’t really intend on it being a hip hop blog, so I named it Breathe Easy Live Free; then it turned into a hip hop blog. Even though it doesn’t sound very hip-hoppy, I’d like to think it’s more unique sounding than some hip hop blogs out there like Hip Hop Super Exclusive Zone VIP Swag or something along those lines.

HG: Name one thing you would change about hip hop right now.

I would change who record labels give attention to; labels are signing these wack rappers & deeming them cool. I want to see rappers that deserve to be signed get the record deals.
I'd rather them sign these artists on the come up who have genuine, talent & originality & who make quality music- those are the people that deserve to be heard. In my opinion, a majority of “hip hop” that is on the radio is total garbage & people don’t even realize it.

HG: What other music do you listen to besides hiphop?

I love all types; reggae, rock, classic, R&B, jazz, funk, except country, I don’t really mess around with that, unless it’s Garth Brooks, he used to hold it down.

I’m a huge fan of music from the 60’s, 70’s & 80’s like Earth Wind & Fire, Hall & Oats, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, Al Green, Johnny Guitar Watson, Marvin Gaye. My music library is rather broad and random. One minute you’re listening to Tupac then Dave Matthews Band will come on.

HG: If you got locked up what would it be for, sex in a public place or murder?

Haha, realistically probably marijuana possession, but of those two I’d have to say sex in a public place; I definitely don’t have it in me to murder anyone.

HG: Quick, name 5 songs that you have on repeat right now!
ScHoolboy Q – Blessed ft. Kendrick Lamar
The Fieldz – Jet Plane
Michael Francis – Pony 2012
Red Hot Chili Peppers – Did I Let You Know
Shady Blaze – Stars Will Light A Way

HG: What is your favorite place to do online shopping?
Probably – they always have sweet promo codes! 7. Have you ever been in the studio and dropped a verse?
I haven’t, I’ve been in the studio before and I’ve secretly wanted to try it out just for fun- it’s on my Bucketlist. I’d also like to learn how to produce; that would be really awesome, I always have beats & sample ideas in my head.

HG: What changes do you want to implement over at Breath Easy for 2012?
I’d like to see a whole new layout. However, I do everything on my site myself and I’m only decent at using HTML; but I have an idea in my head of what I want it to be, it’s just a matter of sitting down to do it.
