Interviewing Music Journalist, Producer and Artist Jesse Rodriguez

Jesse Rodriguez and I met through KTSW as he joined the Hip-hop group. Rodriguez joined the station as a DJ and music journalist but sought out the challenge of covering Hip-hop. I had the privilege of working with Rodriguez and quickly saw his potential.

Later in the semester, I discovered that Rodriguez was a producer and he sent me some of the beats he had produced. Once again impressed by his creative ability, I offered to interview him. Fortunately, the collaboration came to fruition.

Rodriguez and I discuss his entry into the genre and how his roots in Del Rio Texas influenced his sample obsession. We also talk about his ambitions, not only as a producer, but also through the artistry of his alias Pink Box. Rodriguez tells the origin story behind his alter egos of Pink Box and Mottle Blonde. 

The interview is available on all streaming platforms and you can listen here:
