Sirius Blvck recently dropped a new album titled Ancient Lights, so HG shot him a few questions about the new project.
HG: How did you come up with the album name?
Sirius: The album name is a take on the idea that, at the core we are spirit beings having a human
experience. Our essence doesn't belong to this body. We are Ancient Lights. We existed long before
we entered these shells and we'll exist long after.
HG: You mentioned your Mother a few times on this album, what does she think about
Sirius: My mother is very supportive of my music. The life of a musician is not pretty, but she knows
I'm here on a mission and she believes in what I do to the fullest. She's a poet herself and writes and
performs to this day. She in many ways will always be my inspiration for how I go about this life.
HG: The simpsons, family guy, futurama or…?
Sirius: If this was 1999 i'd say Sinpsons. I hust got into Futurama. Never really gave it a shot till recently. I dig it, its smart but eh. Family Guy is my choice. That Peter, he's a hoot.
HG: How did the name Sirius Blvck come to you, did you choose it or did it choose you?
Sirius: The drummer of Indian City Weather Tyler Bayne swears up and down HE gave me the name.
But I love Harry Potter. & Sirius Black is a motherfuckin G. I just kinda said fuckit and used it. Flipped
the "A" to a "V" so when you google me you find me.
HG: Fill in the Blank: This album "Ancient Lights" is like a the sound track to the movie
Sirius: Cloud Atlas Or Small Soldiers.
HG: What was it like working with Grey Granite and Ejazz?
Sirius: It was dope. I've worked wit Grey and the HG crew on quite a few occasions at this point and
we always come out wit a dope joint. Ejaaz is on the come up like myself so I wanted to get him on a
track as well, mad talented and a prime example of the wave of new hip hop the city has to offer. They
kilt it too.
HG: Is there anyone dead or alive that you would have liked to be able to drop a verse
on this album?
Sirius: Not really, I like how the album turned out. I plan to get Yoni Wolf from Why?
on a track before I die tho. Him Gibbs & P.O.S
HG: Fill in the blank: When I am in the studio I need... w33d, Arizona Drinks, Good vibes.
HG: If there was two things you want people to take away from this album what would that be?
Sirius: I would hope that people take away some type of inspiration. And the power of imagery and
imagination. The album is above anything an ode to imagination.
HG: Anything else you want the people to know?
Sirius: Everything is going to be fine. Have some fun.
