Soul Supreme: DJ Premier, Stevie Wonder, and Kanye West.
MVRemix: Abortion. Pro-life or pro-choice?
Soul Supreme: Pro-choice. But, I don’t like that way of wording it. I don’t consider pro-choice being ‘Pro-death’.
MVRemix: Death penalty. For or against?
Soul Supreme: I am very much against it.
MVRemix: Where were you on the September 11th terrorist attack? How did you deal with it? How has it affected the music industry?
Soul Supreme: I was at home, studying. Since I’m not American and wasn’t in the U.S., it wasn’t as hard for me. Of course, it was shocking. I have no idea how it affected the industry, other than that, it temporarily allowed some worthless country singer to climb the charts.
MVRemix: How do you feel about the U.S. involvement in the Middle East?
Soul Supreme: I think we can all agree on that it’s more or less, a catastrophe.
MVRemix: Word association. I am going to say the name of a group, artist, or person and you say the first word that pops into your head. So, if I said ‘Public Enemy’, you may say ‘Revolution’ or ‘Fight The Power’. If I said ‘The Beatles’, you may say ‘Revolver’ or ‘Yoko Ono’. Okay?

MVRemix: What is the biggest mistake you have made in your career?
Soul Supreme: I seriously don’t know. I don’t think I’ve made that many big mistakes in my career, so far. We’ll have to wait and see.
MVRemix: What advice would you give to an up and coming hip-hop producer?
Soul Supreme: Make beats. Lot’s of them.

MVRemix: If you could remake any classic hip-hop song, what would you do it?

MVRemix: What are some major misconceptions that people have of you?
Soul Supreme: That I’m American.
MVRemix: How do you think that you have matured, evolved, or changed?

MVRemix: In hip-hop, what kind of styles of production do you see coming in the future?
