Dubcnn recently got the chance to sit down once again with a man who normally lets the music do the talking, producer Ervin "EP" Pope is from Watts, California and has firmly established himself in the industry. We sat down for our second exclusive video interview to discuss his most recent work, including Co-Executive producing The Game's LAX record, the Life After Math DVD project and a new project entitled "Bastards of the Party," a documentary that Ervin has completed the soundtrack for.

Ervin talks to us about his Furnace Production company that has just signed Dresta as well as a whole host of young and talented writers and producers. We get the lowdown on a mixtape he has dropping with DJ Skee, find out about his work with Mack 10, getting involved in the production crew "The Joint Chiefs" and lots more in this incredible feature.

Dubcnn: And you mentioned that you had a mixtape with Skee coming out?

Yeah I got a mixtape with Skee coming out, top of the year. We just going through, making good music. It's actually hard to pick the music for the street album/mixtape becase I want everything to be quality. As you know, when everything is quality, its hard to just give stuff away, but I'm going to give it out to you all, the fans, I'm going to give it up.
cool  :)

props  8) EP's a beast, shoulda asked him about the "Hard Liquor Interlude" on LAX, asked if that version of the song exist, because its clearly different then the one weve all heard (eg: different drums n more singing by jellyroll)
