Hip-Hop Wired: I'm not from the city originally, so you have to familiarize me with that part of town. Is it wild or something?

Damien Lemon: Yea it's wild out there. People are getting killed often. Yeah it's not a game out there. It's kind of forgotten on a certain level, but, umm, it's funny I was talking to my grandmother and she was like "You know it would probably be a prime place given all of the intersections, buses, and trains like that would be the most natural place gentrification would hit.

Hip-Hop Wired: Seguing topics, since culture moves comedy, what sorts of cultural topics do you like to include in your work?

Damien Lemon: I talk about race, black culture, pop culture, Hip-Hop, food and a myriad of other things. I like to talk about my life and that's changing everyday.
