UGR: What inspired you to become a musician?
UGR: What is a Vanilla Mongoose? How was your group formed?
Nerdy: In my mind Vanilla Mongoose is when banks, myself and Lynk climb into a gigantic mascot costume that’s controlled by us in different sections kind of like Power Ranger’s. Other times Vanilla Mongoose is away to describe a taste or more of a flavor. How it became… BANKS DID IT! Banks thought we could all do some work and I had a human torch track I was getting ready to record so I featured Lynk and the rest just came together.
UGR: What direction do you see hip hop moving towards?
Nerdy: I see it being pure streaming really. I see the music business is turning smooth into the entertainment business a lot like pro wrestling. Can you cut a promo and can you sell.
UGR: Who are your top 5 favorite musicians?
Nerdy: Such a bad question!
UGR: Any upcoming projects or last remarks?
Nerdy: Currently I am working on something but it’s still in the infancy stages. I have T-Shirt available from Small- XL.
