Any 90′s music fanatic will remember the song “Cantaloop” by Us3 for its infectious jazz grooves mixed with hip hop. But did you know that Us3 mastermind Geoff Wilkinson got the rights to sample the Blue Note Records catalog for that and other songs only AFTER thinking he was getting sued? And did you know that he later visited the Birdland Music Club in New York City, only to discover it was now a strip club?!? Dave O recently SKYPED with Wilkinson to discuss these things, as well as Us3′s new record, the future of the group and much, much more.
