HIP HOP ARTIST SOLO TALKS ABOUT THE GUI­TAR GADGETS THAT HE WOULD LIKE TO HAVE AND SHARES HIS THOUGHTS ABOUT THE FACE­BOOK DATA LEAK.

1. In your world, what should a best smart­phone have?

Great cam­era. High res­o­lu­tion. Lots of space.

2. What smart­phone are you us­ing and how long have you had it?

I’m us­ing a Sam­sung S8. I think I’ve had it for close to a year now.

3. Do you use a fil­ter be­fore post­ing pho­tos on In­sta­gram? Why?

No. On av­er­age, I post pro­fes­sional pic­tures on my In­sta­gram now. Every­thing else is posted on In­staS­tory with no fil­ter.

4. What are your thoughts about the re­cent Face­book data leak scan­dal?

I think we gave up a sig­nif­i­cant amount of our pri­vacy years ago. I think I al­ways as­sumed some­one was ben­e­fit­ing at great lev­els in any case.

5. What do you think should be done to pre­vent data leaks from so­cial me­dia net­work­ing sites and the in­ter­net?

I re­ally don’t know. I’m sure there are more suited minds to fig­ure it all out. I’ll be here to ben­e­fit from those solutions.

6. What do you know about car jam­ming and have you ever ex­pe­ri­enced it?

I’ve never ex­pe­ri­enced car jam­ming. All I know is that I lock my car with the re­mote and then pro­ceed to check my door man­u­ally, to see if it’s ac­tu­ally locked.

7. If you were to in­vert an elec­tric gui­tar, what would it have and what would you call it?

I play the bass, so that’s all I can speak on. I’d ma­nip­u­late the weight in the head­stock to make it be as light as a feather. I’d call it the “Light-Headed Bass”. Have the name sell it­self.

8. Name two gui­tar gadgets that you would like to have?

* Ef­fects ped­als * Re­lay G10 dig­i­tal wire­less sys­tem.

9. Would you buy your part­ner a smart­watch? And what fea­tures would you like it to have?

My part­ner never wears watches. So, no.

10. What are your thoughts about cy­ber bul­ly­ing, and what do you think should be done to stop it?

Cy­ber bul­ly­ing is a huge prob­lem. I’m not sure how we can fight against face­less bul­lies. What I do know is that we con­trol how of­ten we fre­quent spa­ces where cy­ber bul­lies re­side.

11. Do you read reviews on the in­ter­net about the restau­rants that you are plan­ning to go to?

No I do not. I of­ten go to restau­rants based on rec­om­men­da­tions from peo­ple I trust.

12. If you were to own a restau­rant, which cell­phone net­work and tech­nol­ogy com­pany would you part­ner with? Why?

I have no loy­alty to any cell­phone net­work. They have all dis­ap­pointed at some point in my life.
