To the joy of their fans, and the apparent dismay of their detractors, Da Korum has come out of hiding to release their latest and most ambitious Mormon Hip-Hop offering to date: What I$ Reality?: Da Concept Album. Instead of being discouraged by the Philistines who lack the high level of cognitive abstraction necessary to understand their work, Da Korum has stuck a metaphorical stick in those eyes and ears by creating a complex, deep concept album worthy to sit between your copies of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and its sister album Ringo the 4th.
Even more astonishing than the brilliant depths that this album has uncovered for the first time in all musical history is the fact that masterminds Valiant B and MC Hot Drankz were willing to sit down with me (for the second time) and talk about this momentous album and its inevitable future impact on the music industry.

Linescratchers has a long history with Young Sim. He was one of our first interviews way back in 2008. A year later, I did a podcast interviewing him about his childhood, and I later wrote an in-depth account, from Sim’s own words, of his family’s escape from the murderous Samuel Doe, dictator of Liberia. You could say that Sim has been one of our strongest and most ardent supporters since the very beginning. Now, Sim’s Feel Good Music Coalition has been expanding by leaps and bounds; “Teach Me How To Jimmer,” a less-than-serious rap about Jimmer Fredette written by Sim and his colleagues, has a million views on YouTube; and Sim has just now released a new album called Audio Diary. In this interview, Sim talks about his recent successes, his inspirations, and his plans for a grand takeover of the future of music. Continue reading “A peek into Young Sim’s diary.”
