ROT 023 Thinking Outside the Box with C.V.E's NgaFsh - Rappers Over Thirty

Episode 23

ROT 023 Thinking Outside the Box with C.V.E's NgaFsh

NgaFsh is a member of the “Chillin Villain Empire” (C.V.E) and the “Dynamic Duo” with his son “DJ NoWords”. He initially started rapping with “MC Spend” a rapper who would later become known as the “Bitch Better Have My Money” rapper “A.M.G”.

NgaFsh has been producing underground albums for years, toured the states and other parts of the world. As a member of “C.V.E” he and his label mates secured a quarter million dollar record deal which was quite unique whereas they kept creative control of their music and merchandise and would have all of their masters returned to them within a couple of years. 

In this episode I play music which features NgaFsh, DJ NoWords, Rifleman, Riddlore, and Imperator. We discuss current events, healthy habits, mental health, his dealing with gangs while being bussed to school from South Central Los Angeles to Venice, the “Good Life” and “Project Blowed” open mic venues, his thinking outside the box and non-industry approach to making music.

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
