AllHipHop.com: Well at least you’re an educated dude. You’ve got a Sociology degree from the University of Washington, and as you said worked a 9 to 5 as a file clerk in a courthouse. Have you been able to apply that education to the game and working within the industry?

Jake One: You know, I don’t think anything particular I learned in college has really helped me as far as that. More than anything it’s just being disciplined and following through on things and being on top of whatever it is. Whether that’s sending somebody beats in a timely fashion, or showing up somewhere on time, or just being reliable and being somebody of your word. I think going through education on some levels gives you more structure in your life. Some people have issues with that and it costs them gigs, so I would say that part of it has been real good.
