Arizona has never really been known for Hip Hop, but G-Unit’s Hot Rod is trying to change that. After being snapped up by 50 Cent, Rod went on a recording frenzy, staying at 50’s mansion and churning out his debut album “Fast Lane” within three weeks. He’s currently doing the rounds with his single “Be Easy” featuring Mary J. Blige and is set to release his debut at the beginning of 2007.
MVRemix: How are you dealing with all the pressure that comes with being an artist on G-Unit?
Hot Rod: Of course it’s going to be pressure. Pressure from me having the whole state (Arizona) on my back. Pressure from being on the west coast and being on G-Unit. It’s a lot of haters out there. A lot of G-Unit hate. I got on with a demo and of course there’s a lot of hate with that. I’m dealing with it. I’m not up thinking of it and crying every night. I’m not waking up in a cold sweat. I’m in a real major situation. I had to really get focused.
