Weekend Work - Cuban Link

As the sun shined over the bustling streets of New York City, Storm and I found ourselves making our way toward the iconic Sirius XM building. We were on a mission, armed with our cameras and microphones, to film Weekend Work’s interview with none other than Cuban Link, a legendary rapper, and fellow New Yorker who had left an indelible mark on Hip Hop history. I couldn’t help but feel a surge of excitement running through my veins, as the thought of sitting down with such an influential artist brought a sense of awe and anticipation. Cuban Link’s history in Hip Hop is one that has been both storied and respected. Bursting onto the scene in the late 90s as a member of the revered group, Terror Squad, Cuban quickly gained notoriety for his gritty lyrics and smooth delivery. His collaborations with industry heavyweights like Big Pun and Fat Joe solidified his status as a force to be reckoned with. But the year 2015 was a pivotal one for Cuban, as it marked the release of his highly anticipated album, “Chain Reaction,” which featured a blend of hardcore Hip Hop, Latin-inspired tracks, and introspective verses that showcased his growth as an artist. As we entered the studio and set up our equipment, I couldn’t shake the feeling of familiarity that washed over me. Being in the presence of Cuban Link reminded me so much of my brother, Angel, who had held the same demeanor in his early rap days. My brother had always been a source of inspiration for me, with his unwavering determination and passion for the craft of Hip Hop. It was as if, at that moment, the universe was drawing a parallel between these two influential figures in my life, reinforcing the idea that we are all connected in one way or another. The interview began, and Cuban Link’s charismatic personality filled the room. He spoke candidly about the highs and lows of his career, reflecting on the lessons he had learned along the way. He shared stories of his time with Terror Squad and the brotherhood they had formed, which was a testament to the powerful bonds that can be forged through music. As he delved deeper into his experiences from 2015, it became clear that this period in his life was a turning point. He had faced numerous challenges, both personally and professionally, but had emerged stronger and more focused than ever. The release of “Chain Reaction” was a culmination of his resilience and dedication, and it was evident that he was proud of the body of work he had created. His journey served as a reminder that, despite the many obstacles we may face, it is our ability to persevere and remain true to ourselves that ultimately defines our success.
