Steelo Discusses The Iranian Election
Tuesday, July 14, 2009

I caught up with Seattle duo Steelo this week and with emcee A. Uno being half Iranian we talked at length about the current election situation and the protests going on there. He and Bobby K, the R&B half of the group, also discussed going into schools with their Steelo Empowerment program and what people can expect from their just released debut LP, Music. Here are a few of the highlights from the interview:

A. Uno on the Iranian government:
“I think that the whole society is in need of change and basically the regime of the past needs to have their brick walls cracked and crumbled.”

Bobby K on Steelo’s cleaner image:
“We’re not trying to be the cool guys that are cussing our brains out and talking about stuff that’s been done before because it’s getting old as far as the quintessential Hip-Hop lifestyle and what people think that is.”

A. Uno on being real with students:
“It’s not like we’re putting on an act and then leaving that spot and doing something else. I think what these students really appreciate is the fact that we give it to em real.”
