You've been given a robot that can be trained to perform one standardized
task perfectly, as often as necessary. What do you train it to do?
Radioinactive: I would train the robot to rap; then the group would
be called Radioinactive and MC KID ROBOT, and we would
sell a gazillion records. MC Kid Robot will serve any
MC, human or otherwise.
You are seriously ill. There are two vaccines that will save your life,
but both have side effects: one will permanently eliminate your sense of
taste, and the other will permanently eliminate all feeling in your
genitals. Which vaccine would you choose?
Radioinactive: I will take the taste losing vaccine. I'll probably
be eating a lot more pussy. I guess if I took the other vaccine I'd be eating a lot more pussy as well. Did a woman come up with this question?
Somehow you've gotten into a fight with someone twice your size. Where do
you aim the first punch?
Radioinactive: If I could reach this monster's throat, that's where it
would be. Otherwise, it would be a kick. A kick to
the knee or to the family jewels. Or now that I think
about it, the first punch would be right in the chest.
It's just a distraction for the follow up kick to the
gnads. He would take a step back and open himself up
for the goooooaaaaaal! If I could use a flame thrower,
that would be my choice.
If given the perfect opportunity to be unjust, would a just person succumb

If you could instantly learn to play one instrument that you don't
currently play, what would it be?

shoes on all fours, doggy style.
The people of the town where you were born want to name a building after
you. They've asked you to choose the sort of building that best matches
your personality. What kind of building do you choose?
Radioinactive: The Building of Complete and Utter Nonsense and
Appreciation of All That is Good Institute.
What month of the year do you least anticipate? Why?
Radioinactive: I don't like October, because in the US Oktoberfest is
just a bunch of commercial hype. The charlie brown
Oktoberfest special, the Oktoberfest volleyball and
xtreme sports tournaments. Those big f---king glasses
of beer and all those special Oktoberfest school
assemblies and the "I brake for Oktoberfest" and "honk if
you're drunk, driving home from an Oktoberfest
beer garden" bumper stickers.
What animal would you most like to house in your back yard, if you could?
Radioinactive: I would like to have a platypus in the yard, 'cause egg-laying mammals that nurse their young are pretty fucking interesting!
When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Radioinactive: I wanted to be a paleontologist. Is that spelled right?
Until I saw Jurassic Park; then I wanted to be Jeff Goldblum.
If you could buy any rare collection in the world, which collection would
you choose? (This doesn't have to be a famous collection...but it can be.)

The West Coast Work Force presents its finest plumber ever, the legendary Radioinactive. By way of Los Angeles, Radio has set foot on stage with a multitude of ground breaking artists: Freestyle Fellowship, The Shape Shifters, CVE, Off Mexican Descent, The Coup, The Sugarhill Gang, Afrika Bambaata, House of Pain and Lighter Shade of Brown. A poet in arms and true maintenance man of the underground terra, he has been putting out new music since the last president. From his rip roaring days with Log Cabin (ex-members include Eligh, MURS, and Scarub) to his classic EPs Balance and Fotractor, Radio has infiltrated fine music collections around the world. More recently, his show-stealing performance on the Celestial compilation Beneath The Surface has left ears wanton and himself in the 1999 Urb's Next 100. Now it's payback time and Mr. Radioinactive means business. Stopping at no cadence and fitting no particular mold, it's time to unleash the rhythm, the poet, Radioinacive.
