Mistah Wilson: Yo KStone, what's good wit it! Thanks for coming thru for this exclusive interview with ThaWilsonBlock Magazine! Before we get further into it, what was it like growing up in Pasadena, CA and what does it mean to be from tha City of Roses?

KStone: I'm a 80's baby so around that time it was turnt meaning the gang life. You seen the rising of the crack era. Pops a gang member so I remember hearing gunshots. 46 E. Montana St yea is where it all began. Mama got us in the kitchen clutching down I remember all of that. My childhood was nasty. To be from here City of the Rose it's a wonderful feeling blessed it's no other city like it.

Mistah Wilson: When did you know you wanted to pursue music?
KStone: I wanted to purse music at a young age. I remember pops got his beats playing on his stereo he had back n the day telling me to catch the beat read in his rhyme book at like 9. Since then it waz a go. But I didn't really start taking it serious til' like I hit the county jail at 18 shit got real for ya' boy. Just took my life and put it on paper.
