HipHopInformant: Does your music have a message? If so, what is the message?

HipHopInformant: Which artists influence you and your music?

Fal August: Eminem, Bob Marley, Sting.

HipHopInformant: What are your views on “beefs” such as the 50/Rick Ross beef ?

Fal August: Well music beef has been strange now a days some are real beef and some like 50 cent beefing with Rick Ross is just another way for 50 to get some attention because his records sales has been pretty weak and Rick Ross his sales have been great, this isn't beef this is called hating.
