Buck 65 - Wicked And Weird (Porch EP version)
Wicked and Weird
The acclaimed Canadian hip-hop artist, producer, and radio host is speaking to me via Skype about his new memoir Wicked and Weird: The Amazing Tales of Buck 65 , unaware that he's just made the understatement of the century. Within the book Terfry recounts in vivid sensory detail the many adventures that have resulted from transforming his introversion into meaningful connection with the wider world. Such exploits include being held at gunpoint by rappers angry that a white man was "invading" their turf, inadvertently agreeing to dinner with potential cannibals, and spending two months in a Russian prison, to name but a few. Throughout his various trials, Terfry has remained a prolific musician celebrated for his combinations of hip-hop with blues and avant-garde elements nearly every review of his concerts features the word "magical". More impressive still, he's retained his faith in people's essential goodness. These paradoxes -- reality versus imagination and trust, sensitivity plus endurance beyond belief -- create the central themes of Wicked and Weird , which follows Terfry from his impoverished childhood in s Nova Scotia to the creation of his album More Heart than Brains a collaboration with Belgian producer Greetings from Tuskan.

Wicked and Weird - Buck 65
Aug 11, ISBN Star radio-host Rich Terfry presents the amazing tales of his alter ego, musician Buck 65, in this rollicking account of growing up poor, talented, baseball-obsessed, music-mad and girl-smitten. Born in a small town in Nova Scotia to a mother who begins yelling at him the moment he is born and a father who keeps his own counsel, Buck imbibes fear and insecurity like other kids guzzle milk. Along the way, Buck develops into a hopeless romantic and an obsessively creative, shape-shifting man who both fears life and dives into it with abandon. Wicked and Weird is a lively, sometimes shocking portrait of a life lived on the edge, by turns funny and heartbreaking.
