ROT 013 UNITY Los Angeles Best Hip Hop Club ever with Orlando Fenderson

In this episode of the “Rappers Over Thirty” podcast: Imp proclaims that most people who do good things to help others out do it out of the kindness of their heart with no expectation of anything back. However in terms and philosophies like “show appreciation”, “Support those that support you”, and “Got each others back” have fallen on deaf ears, and is a detriment to the black community and must be remedied.

Imp also issues a fitness challenge: Asking the rappers over thirty to film themselves working out and post the film on social media with the hashtag #rotworkout

The special guest "Orlando Fenderson" worked alongside his partner "Bigga B" R.I.P whom together are known for creating "Los Angeles California’s “Best Hip Hop Club Ever”. That club was called “UNITY” and they brought some of the illest emcees and rap groups to Los Angeles for their first shows. Names like The Wu Tang Clan, Nas, Jay Z, Big Pun, Eminem and the Goodie Mob.

They provided a platform for west coast legends and innovators like Xzibit, Dialated Peoples, Self Scientific, Krondon, and The Freestyle Fellowship.

Orlando has worked for LOUD Records, RCA and Monument Entertainment as the director of marketing and promotions for the west coast. He’s studied Law and Marketing and is also a real estate agent.

Profile picture for Steven Laws

Steven Laws

My name is Steven “Imp The Great” Laws, I’m a rap music producer (By Any Means Music) and a filmmaker (From Rap To Film). I’m an accomplished rapper/emcee and novice filmmaker, and I enjoy cooking. I’m 57 years old and I’ve been rapping since age 13. I’m a well-known underground emcee in Los Angeles, as I’m from the “Project Blowed” and “Good Life” open mic venues. In the 1997 “Rap Olympics” I won one-round-out-of-two in a rap battle against Eminem. Although we split rounds he was declared the winner (go figure).

I’m also the founder and host of “The Rappers Over Thirty Podcast” (R.O.T). I started the podcast to support, network, and help build the fanbase for rappers over thirty. I believe the “Rap is a young man’s game” philosophy is a conspiracy that falls in line with the "Willie Lynch Letters”. The (R.O.T) podcast is open for healthy discussions with those who agree or disagree with “Rap is a young man’s game”. - Imp The Great
