Framework Interview @ Seaspot

Today was quite eventful. Got home hours ago from the Pop Conference at the EMP|SFM. Saw a few heads from the past. Good seein both Kitty and Sam there. I left the conference one panel early to catch some dinner just off Lake City Way. Kona Kitchen has been buzzin in the air for me for a quick minute and I was able to finally experience it. Kona Kitchen receives the BiW stamp of approval for their fine Hawaiian cuisine. Think Ohana in Belltown, but with ample street parking along with a lot on the side of the building and behind the restaraunt.

Now, back to the subject of this entry. I opened up my email and saw that Seaspot had an interview with Framework who recently performed at Neumos alongside D. Black for the Bun B show. Click here for the full read. Also, Framework has not only got a MySpace page, but a website located here!

Seattle Slim: In an article on you by The Stranger, they described your past with the justice system. That was 2005. How have things changed for you?

Framework: I've grown a whole bunch man, as far as my craft and my life period. A lot of things done happened that done made me grow, you know what I'm sayin'? My son got shot three, four months ago.

Seattle Slim: Oh no! I'm sorry.

Framework: He almost died over somebody trying to take something from him, see what I'm saying?

Seattle Slim: Oh my God!

Framework: A lot has changed, but at the same time, a lot hasn't changed. Dealing with my daily activities and my longevity with this music, haven't changed see what I'm sayin'? I'm further than I was as far as my buzz and my fan base. I'm a little bit further, but it's time to get Seattle out there, man. But I've grown a whole lot. When they interviewed me, I bailed out and I'm still out on that same bail from three years ago. That's one of the reasons I'm going specifically hard with this music. I used to deal with the struggle all kinds of negative ways back then you know what I'm sayin'? But I'm dealing with it in all kinds of positive ways.
