Rapper, spoken word artist, and activist Ise Lyfe adds acting and authorship to his resume
"Normally I'd be recording my next record," he says when asked about the two years since Prince Cometh. "But I want to put that money and energy into expanding our audience then dropping a record that changes everything."
"There's no one here who sells more records, fills more shows, or does anything more provocative than us," he says. "I keep hearing, 'Nobody's trying to hear that shit you're talking about.' But the numbers say somebody is. It's interesting that Ise Lyfe is an afterthought when I run this shit. And I mean that humbly."
