Hey Ubiquitous! Thanks a ton for doing this AMA. Your line "Life's 10% what happens to you, the other 90% is all attitude" has had a great impact on how I carry myself throughout life and how I handle situations. My question is, are there any lyrics like this for you that have affected your outlook on life or your mentality?

cescruofficial33 karma

"Actions have reactions don't be quick to judge, you may not no the hardships people don't speak of" RIP GURU

Hey Ubi!

Been a huge fan of Ces Cru since the early days. Got to see you guys play in Charleston a few years ago. Incredible! Thanks for all the good music you two have put out.

Are their any trends in today's hip hop that annoy you?

cescruofficial12 karma

over autotuned verses. like nails on a chalkboard :<

BirkaBirkowski3 karma

Ubiquitous, I just wanted to say that there was a time when my girlfriend hated rap and hip hop. Then one day, on a long car ride, I put in Constant Energy Struggles and is now dying to see you guys live and hear more and more of your material. Kudos.

As for my question; what non-rapper historical figures would you put into a cypher?

cescruofficial4 karma

Bobby Kennedy

Jilly_Willy3 karma

Dantecoupon3 karma

Ubi! you guys were sick as shit back on tour with Mayday and Murs for Mursday when you came to St. Louis. Got 1 question for ya.

When Tech got a hold of you about the phone call from Godemis from Dead Alive, what was your first thought and how did the convo with Gode go when you got a hold of him?

cescruofficial9 karma

There was some drama surrounding that voicemail, Tech was pissed off at first!! I had to check Godemis, then he apologized and it's all good. Now we can look back and laugh..... I guess. lol

bwaredapenguin3 karma

Biggie or Tupac?

cescruofficial11 karma

I lean Biggie, but they're both classic!

Hi, Ubi! Long time fan here. Who is your favorite rapper and what is your favorite hip-hop album of all time?

cescruofficial6 karma

I'm vibin off The Sun Rises in the East lately, but it's always changing. And it might be Nas, at least for now

Map6612 karma

Hey UBi, what do you think about music that's playing on the radio? I believe that the music and the artist are decent but the lyrics just suck, everything is pretty much saying the same things, what's your say on that??

cescruofficial2 karma

Blame Clear Channel, they control the content like a mofo!!
