JOURNALICIOUS EXCLUSIVE!

PLIES
Real Talk


Whether you’re a hot chick with a “thing” for street souljas, a baller with hood appreciation or an industry insider with a love for the dirty south, one thing is for certain. Everyone is feeling Floridian rapper PLIES. With his subsequent album, Definition of Real, (which offers candid pleas of male desire (for the female, of course,) lucid accounts of street misfortune and genuine displays of love and appreciation,) the Slip N Slide recording artist speaks on success, his brother’s incarceration, industry friendships and the significance of being an astute rapper.

Now that DOR has debuted at #2 on the UK charts, PLIES opens up to The Journalista about his current (as he calls it) “situation.”

An artist’s dream is for their second album to out-do their first. Your second album, Definition of Real has done just that. Was your format for this album the same as the first?
Plies: With the sophomore album…, I followed the same formula. I talked about a lot of things I felt were important to me. A lot of issues I felt that people, especially in the inner city and hoods go through… I just feel like it’s a diverse album just like the last one. At the end of the day, I’m still making music that’s true to me.

What are your favorite tracks off DOR?
Plies: One record that I’m real crazy about is actually a Patti LaBelle sample called Somebody Loves You…. I got another track that I know… is just gonna make the females crazy. It’s called I Feel Like Fu**in’. (laughs) I know it’s gonna be a quick grabber.
I got The Dream on Please Excuse My Hands. I got a record called #1 Fan featuring Keyshia Cole and J Holiday. I got Neo, of course, Bust It Baby. I got Trey Songz on more of a street record called I’m Da Man. It’s pretty star-studded. I still don’t have any rappers on the album like last time.

How does it feel to have yet another song that the ladies are just loving (Bust It Baby)?
Plies: It’s cool, for me to have the track record that I have in radio right now, delivering great records is something I take pride in. I’d like to thank Neo for blessing me with such a powerful hook and record.

On your debut album, the song 100 Years was embraced by many and touched on a real subject, incarceration. Is there a song with a similar impact on DOR?
Plies: I have a track called One Day about a friend of mine that got killed and I wish I could just bring him back for one day. I’m just sticking to my same formula.

There tends to be beef in the hip-hop game (in some form or another.) On the other hand, who is Plies cool with in the industry?
Plies: Flo Rida. He does his thing. Shawty Lo is a good friend of mine.

You have somewhat of a devotion to prison inmates. Is it true that you are planning a prison tour?
Plies: Yeah, actually we got into a couple facilities. Then we had a couple bumps in the road. About four of the institutions we had confirmed backed out. So we’re trying to re-route and restructure it and get a couple more institutions in line. The most important one (for me) is where my brother is; Coleman Correctional Facility in Florida. For whatever reason, they’re playing hardball with me. So we’re still trying to fight that situation.

And you also have a website called Bidlong.com that’s dedicated to inmates?
Plies: It’s a site that’s geared strictly toward people that are currently incarcerated. Since the album was released, I’ve been spending a lot of time making sure it turns out the way I want it to turn out.

Many industry heads and front-runners have acknowledged you as being one of the most articulate and sharp artists in hip-hop. What is it in particular that they notice about you?
Plies: Having the opportunity to conduct interviews and deal with corporate America on a day to day basis is so important. That picture… of Uncle Sam pointing at you… reminds me…that this industry wants as many dumb artists as they can get cause they don’t want you to get it, they don’t want you to understand it. The least you understand, the better “they” are. They give you media training at a lot of labels to make sure you don’t embarrass their logo, but they don’t give you any business training to make sure they don’t rob you…of your money. So for me, I try to get as much knowledge and information as I can all the time. I want to be a sponge and pick up something from everybody. Sometimes the streets have you believe the more ignorant and dumb you are, the more…you’re perceived as being real. I just don’t feel that way. I feel that the most successful people in life…have been well-educated people. So…I just try to get as much… knowledge as I can and prepare myself for any conversation I’m about to have. I try to do my research. I think life is most importantly about preparing. I think any time you don’t plan, you find yourself in uncomfortable situations. I try to be a well thought out person no matter what I do.

So, what is Plies’ “definition of real.”
Plies: A person that’s responsible; a stand up ni**a. Whether it’s good or bad; willing to except any accident or his consequences in life. I think at the end of the day, my definition of real might be a little different. A lot of times the streets want you to believe you got to be broke to be real, a lot of people want you to believe you got to go to prison two or three times to be real. Those things are somewhat different from my definition. My definition is being not only the most responsible…, but the most true person I can be to myself. I tell cats all the time that snitching started from someone who wasn’t willing to except their punishment. So to me, my definition is probably a little different, but it’s my definition.
