If you were one of the thousands to download Print’s [AOK, Good Day, Good Night] Comic Books: Unlimited album from that other site in the sidebar, you probably have listened to it, more than once; and you probably have a lot of questions about the man behind the “S” and the cape.
Well TheOvun.com was able to grab an exclusive interview with Man of Steele himself, to break down the whole Print movement, who is Good Day Good Night, how he got in the game, and what he plans on doing with it. We wouldn’t be TheOvun if we didn’t add a little twist to the interview. So for all you real Comic Book heads we picked his brain on some comic-related topics–without further ado:
TheOvun: For those who don’t know, can you break down the whole Print vs. Good Day, Good Night situation. Who is in the band, where can we find your stuff, etcetera, etcetera?
Print: I had a band, my first band we broke up. I find that it’s so hard to keep bands together–so basically no matter who is playing, I am the band. What I do is that I have a group of artists/musicians that I play with all the time, but no matter who’s playing, it’s always going to be, Print of Good Day, Good Night.
TheOvun: Ahh, I gotcha, on some Print Presents: Good Day, Good Night;, Print of Good Day, Good Night, like Prince and the Revolution!
Print: Exactly, so whatever happens to the “band”, I play the instruments, I know the notes…
TheOvun: So, do you also produce?
Print: When I produce, it’s always live. When I produce, I say I want the drums to play in a count of 3, I want this to come in here. Most of the time I perform with a live band, so that’s how I operate.
The Ovun: What instruments do you play?
Print: I know the drums, a little bit of guitar and I’m teaching myself the keyboard.
TheOvun: Okay cool, so let’s break it down, Comic Books! Comic Books Unlimited, how was it conceptualized, and why Comic Books at all?
Print: To keep it real funky, Comic Books came into play because I just wanted to do it for myself. I came back from London with my boy Outasight and I was like I wanna do something fun for myself, just to keep my skills tight. I dropped the original Comic Books back in March 08, nobody heard it—well some people heard it, and they were telling me, Comic Books is dope, you need to redo it and you need to do it right, other than that, I’m a fan of Comic Books in general so it was only right.
TheOvun: Okay, so where did this dude Print come from? Where did your get your start?
Print: I started performing in 2005, professionally. My first show I opened up for Young Jeeezy and Juelz Santana and it was my first performance ever–never been on stage at all.
