Bun B

Texas' underground king knows an MC from a rapper and a producer from a beatmaker

Interviewer

Davide Bortot

Having sailed Germany’s premier hip hop magazine Juice to its 10-year anniversary as chief editor, this one-time dancehall sound selector and full-time Academy organiser knows a thing or two about breaking down the ice grill. Davide has dissected b-boy bravura to get to the core of some of the world’s biggest artists in hip hop, R&B, and beyond, and penned culture and technology pieces for broadsheets and magazines like Süddeutsche Zeitung, Spex and Das Magazin. When he’s not busy steering the good ship Red Bull Music Academy as “insert very long-winded job title here” (or despairing of his love for notoriously mediocre Munich-based soccer squad TSV 1860), he brings his no-nonsense interview techniques and razor-sharp segues to the Academy couch.
