Staples talks to us about growing up, the inside joke of ‘Shyne Coldchain’, and why a life of gang banging seemed like fate.
His newest album Big Fish Theory is out now.
This interview was recorded back in 2009 when Jesse was recording the show from his apartment in Los Angeles. Julian, Robby, and Bubbles do the entire interview in character. They tell Jesse how the success of their show has made it harder to engage in illicit activities. They also talk about their various stints in jail, and some of the perks of their job.
