Legendary rapper MC Serch, who is a former member of 3rd Bass and Non Phixion hip-hop collectives, has recently appeared on Math Hoffa’s “My Expert Opinion” podcast hosted by Mr. Mecc, Sean Bigga and Champ.
During his three-hour long interview, the New York City’s golden age rapper revealed the reason Trick Trick stared no-fly zone in Detroit.
“You can ask anybody in Detroit, I killed radio. That no-fly zone s–t, that happened on my show. That happened on my show and I’m gonna tell the truth. So, here is what happened: Trick Trick did a record called ‘Welcome 2 Detroit City’ with Eminem. That was A BANGER. I go to LA, I go to visit Power 106. I’m looking at the playlist and ‘Welcome 2 Detroit’ is number two on Power 106, Hot 97 in LA, number two! They were rotating the record for 57 times a week. Every 43 minutes.” said MC Serch.
Then he continues: “Then…I’m in the car. I’m on my way to Roscoe’s and I hit the record and it’s Em’s verse only. Originally, Em started the verse and then it was Trick Trick. And then it’s Em’s verse again. And that’s it. So I said. Wait, maybe because its morning or the afternoon. Okay. Trick got little greasy, whatever. NO! They rotated that record ‘Welcome 2 Detroit City’ with two Eminem’s verses.”
“So, I came home. And Royce 5’9” and Trick come to visit me. And I said, congratulations on the success of your record but do you know what’s going on out there in the streets, outside of this city?! And I explained to him that I polled radio stations and all they are playing is Eminem’s verse twice. And Trick spazzed out! He said ‘this day forward, it is Detroit is no-fly zone!’ I was doing Serchlite Saturdays at Radio 1 station and he said it’s a no-fly zone and he meant that s–t! And the first person to touch down, that week, Rick Ross. Second guy to touch-down, YoungBerg and what I remember about that, cause I was in the hotel watching him walk in, they mopped him up there and I felt terrible for that kid.” MC Serch added.
