Dub-O recently gave The Illixer a bit of his time via an exclusive Q&A. Get to know the next star out of the EST19XX camp after the jump.

Remember the old school television show Hollywood Squares? It was a television game show that ran off and on from 1966 – 2004. The basis of the show pitted two contestants against each other in a game of tic-tac-toe for cash and prizes. The show featured a 3D version of the tic-tac-toe grid that contained a group of celebrities. The celebrities would be asked a variety of questions and then the contestants would have to guess if the star was right or wrong. The show was semi-scripted as sometimes the stars were given a little help with fake answers to the questions but otherwise everything was original. The show was also known for the comedic elements laced throughout the exchanges between the host, contestants, and stars.

The fellas of Bass Head Music have released their second set of visuals off of their upcoming album. It’s for their previously featured edgy yet dope single “Heartless.” If readers thought the single was crazy, then the video will definitely leave an impression.
