Maf War Newz 2k7: So Serious of the Gimisum Army

So Serious, member of the notorious Gimisum Family, Ski Mask Troopaz are him, Playa Dre (a.k.a.Mista Dre), Killaeon, and Redrum.
He grew up in North Memphis and went to school with the other Ski Mask Troopaz Members. At first he, Killaeon and Redrum were a crew called "The Mob". They performed in their neighborhood until they caught the attention of KingPin Skinny Pimp - and 2 weeks later the Memphis underground classic Tape "Gimisum Dungeon", with the first
Track featuring Ski Mask Troopaz "No Ducking", was released.
That was in 1995, now in 2007 So Serious prepares to release his first Soloalbum entitled "Only Me".

What's up So Serious, glad to make this Interview with you. How are you doing? Blessed to b alive. Sorry it took so long to respond. Just got back in town.

So you grew up in North Memphis. How was grewing up there?
Like any other hood. Tryin 2 survive and stay alive.

How does your regular day look like?
A regular day 4 me would be tryin 2 stay in tha studio as much as possible.

After the Underground Tapes you were featured on CDs like Big Hill "Over The Average Lucky", Lil Gin "Blockin My Shine" and T-Mack "Out Tha Frame", but you were never featured on a Kingpin Skinny Pimp CD. Why that?
At tha time Skinny was on contract with Three-Six and we were just doin underground tapes wit Skinny. It's not like he didn't want us on tha album but it was paperwork involved between him and Three-Six and we weren't on paper.

All in all there wasn't really much news about you. What was up with you all these years?
Workin on my first solo project.

On you MySpace Page it says "A former member of Ski Mask Troopaz". You aren't a part of the group anymore? Why? What's you relation to them now?
I'm still down with tha Ski Mask Troopaz and we talk everyday. Look at fa Tha Return of Tha Ski Mask Troopaz.

Will you be on the upcoming Ski Mask Troopaz Album?
Fa sho!

What's your favorite Gimisum Underground Tape, and why?
Ski Mask Troopaz because Skinny gave us an opportunity 2 do want we wanted.

Even the Gimisum Family is well known to Memphis Fans Skinny Pimp is the only really known and successfull member. What do you think about that?
Once again that goes back 2 paperwork. His albums were pushed on a mainstream level and we were still underground.

You're down with Tracksmith Music now. How did you hook up with them?
I met Catina Johnson at a talent show and she wanted 2 work with me. The next day I was in tha studio wit her producer Tracksmith.

You're planning to drop a new Album, "Only Me". Any Info on that?
Look for it!!

You even have a Video for it. Do you expect to become better known or more mainstream with it?
Of course!

What other projects do you have for the future?
I am currently working on a mix tape that I plan 2 bring out before the album drop. Called "No Time 2 Waste". Like I said before we are working on "Tha Return of Tha Ski Mask Troopaz". And of course my solo "Only Me"

Any last words?
I'm still writin, I'm still in tha studio, kids gotta eat so daddy gotta grind!!!!! I appreciate tha interview.
