The Hot Seat: Lee-Coc, Richmond Revolutionary

Every Friday, Rocks Off will beam hip-hop artists into our demented, imaginary, incredibly witty, fantasy world of pretend scenarios. We predict it'll soon be known as a feared interrogation of hip-hop artists, revealing their most-inner thoughts and desires. In reality, it's just a fucking cool Q&A.

Some people take the hip-hop mike to one day be seen as great, to be admired, to fuck beautiful women, to be rich. Richmond's Lee-Coc just wants to save the world. He wants to save you from government conspiracies, from poison in water, from digital chips hidden in your flesh, from everything that's killing your body and your soul.

He wants to wake you up from your sleep, but with the inaugural "Hot Seat," we probably woke him up at what we thought was 4 a.m., but it was actually 6 a.m. Friday morning. Something about alcohol must distort time.

Good thing Lee picked up or you'd be learning about our mother, who would have saved our ass with some insights on the Tejano music genre. Anyway, meet Lee-Coc: Wolf in sheep's clothing.
