”I just want to feel good about music again,” says famed hip-hop producer Prince Paul in a new video for Scion A/V's latest documentary series.
Even as a well-versed music vet, he's still looking for fresh inspiration, and in this episode, titled “Grease-Dripping Garage Fest,” he and buddies Mr. Dead and Soce head to Lawrence, Kansas on a quest to find new, exciting music.
This video stars Best Coast, The Spits, Hunx And His Punx, Humane Eye, Gaye Blades, King Khan, The Gories, and Sex Beet. Watch Prince Paul talk to Best Coast about their songwriting process and get freaked out by Hunx's crotch pins below:
