Knowledge of Savage Brothers [SB]: Qualm is my real brother. We had a group with two other people, they faded away and we kept it moving, we went from there.
HHUG: What kind of lyricism would you say Savage Brothers incorporate?
SB: Gutter street shit.
HHUG: How did you guys start collaborating with Lord Lhus?
SB: Lhus is my best friend and we have always rapped together since school, we had a old group together called "Cobra Kai" and that developed in to Savage Brothers.
HHUG: Hailing from Columbia, South Carolina, how did you guys hook out with the Snowgoons from Germany?
SB: Lhus put us on to Snowgoons during the Black Snow recording. Lhus was invited to do a song "My Time" that was put on the bonus disc and at this time DJ Illegal was feeling the "Been Fighting Devilz" song and mentioned getting us on Black Snow as well. You can hear that track on the album "Hold Up" featuring R.A. the Rugged Man.
HHUG: In 2009, A Fist In The Thought was released from the Snowgoons featuring Savage Brothers and Lord Lhus. How did that project come about?
SB: That was the Snowgoons idea, we didn't make one cent off of that album because it was under Babygrande Records. But it is still a classic and that album being dropped help push all of our names so it is what it is.
HHUG: Are you guys signed to any label or having plans on doing so?
SB: No we are not sign right now and don't plan on being signed unless the proper deal presents its self.
HHUG: The Iron Fist is the follow up installment to A Fist In The Thought, which released on April 5, 2011. Can you elaborate how this album differs from the first?
SB: It's more gutter, more grimier. Kind of seems like it should of been our first album cause we are still hungry more than ever before.
HHUG: What can fans expect from The Iron Fist in regards to its concept and appeal?
SB: Straight hardcore real hip hop bang you in the face type of rap man, we do it all for the fans. We get deep on a few tracks, cop the album and see for yourself.
HHUG: Can you talk about the production featured in The Iron Fist?
SB: Yeah it's the European elite, Snowgoons, Crown, Al'tarba, Velvet Sick, Hitfarmers, The Returners, Shuko, 5th Criminal, White Shadow, Sicknature and more. What else could a underground emcee ask for?
HHUG: Who are your top 5 favorite music artists and why?
SB: 1) Nas - grew up listening to him. Always felt his music.
2) Onyx - hardest group out, they bring so much energy.
3) Wu-Tang Clan - they started all the raw underground shit in the worldwide mainstream.
4) Chief Kamachi - I been a fan of him since "Deer Hunter" on the Jedi Mind Tricks Violent By Design album.
5) Ol' Dirty Bastard - there's not a father to his style.
HHUG: What can fans anticipate in the future from Savage Brothers?
SB: More heat, more raw rap, more hip hop and more movement - Lord Lhus/Savage Brothers/Snowgoons = one camp
HHUG: Thank you for the interview. Would you like to give any last comments?
SB: Yeah Europe get ready, keep it moving.
