S3R News: How did you and Juiceboxxx first connect and what made this collaboration for Scott Strapped’s release happen?
Tricky Youth: The first time I saw Juiceboxxx was when I was 19 and I thought it was the coolest fucking thing – this guy who was putting everything into this absurd dream and singing songs about the fucked-up journey that had taken him on, regardless of what anyone thought, regardless of if some people thought it was fucking stupid, because it wasn’t for them. It was for anyone who could relate to the idea of being hopeful for something better in the face of all of this miserable shit, and who just wanted to be themselves; I thought it was the coolest fucking thing, way better, more visceral, and meaningful than the cool-guy shit or the high-art shit; it was real, be-yourself, believe-in-yourself shit. And I related.
