Speaking of booking, Jackyl has concerts scheduled up until December 1st in Flint, MI at The Machine Shop. Will you then break for Christmas, and resume touring in 2018? “We do have a couple offers for New Year’s, but I don’t know yet? We’ll figure that out.” Jackyl tends to primarily play The United States, with the occasional sojourn into Canada. How about the UK, Europe, Japan, and Australia? “You know, we’ve been to Europe many times, but with all the things we have going on over here; we do all the festivals in the summer. Then I’ve got Sturgis; I’m standing on the grounds of the Full Throttle Saloon and the Pappy Hoel Campground right now. We’ve got thousands of people showing up as I’m speaking to you. They’re pulling in and checking in to party their ass off at the Full Throttle! We’ve got: hot air balloons, helicopter rides, a swimming pool, Johnny Cash impersonators, Elvis impersonators. We’ve got a firing range where you can shoot fifty-calibre machine guns, a dirt track with racing. The Full Throttle Saloon sits on 15 acres; it’s the largest stage in South Dakota. We’ve got vendors, 300 cabins, 1000 RV hookups; this place is off the chart!”
To come back after that devastating fire in 2015 which burned the place to the ground, that in itself is remarkable. “It was devastating, but we’re trying to turn a negative into a positive, and here we are.” Will you be filming or recording Jackyl’s performance at The Full Throttle in Sturgis on August 10th? “We generally record all the audio, I don’t know if we’ll do any video.”
The last Jackyl studio album, Rowyco, came out in 2016. Have you started writing for a follow-up? “I’m always writing. With Sturgis, and then I’m producing a five-day festival for Harley Davidson in Milwaukee on Labour Day, then all these Jackyl tour dates; it’ll be 2018 before we get back in the studio.” But you still believe in the album format? Some of your peers have said that singles are the way to go. “I’ve got people who follow us that are still mad cause we’re not putting out cassettes.”  

By the late 80s, some rappers rebelled against this commercialization of 80s Hip Hop. Groups like Boogie Down Productions, Public Enemy, and . took rap in a different direction. They rapped about urban crime and the violent lifestyles they encountered growing up in the inner-city. While critics said this new direction glorified violence and indiscriminate sex, Gangsta Rappers responded that they were just representing real life in the inner-city. This new style of Hip Hop set the tone for the direction rap would take as it moved on into the 90s. Some of the top Gangsta Rap songs from the 80s were:
