    Kriss Kross. Cypress Hill. Those are the artists who've influenced L.A. rapper and songwriter KAPTN, a fact that he revealed in this exclusive video interview with ARTISTdirect.

    KAPTN admits that he loves the classic and pop-leaning hip-hop hits. He likes new rap music, but he doesn't listen to much of it. He likes the old, avant garde stuff, posing this question: Who or what is the new 2 Live Crew of this generation? Oooh, that's a toughie. We don't know if we can answer that. Can you?



    That KAPTN. He's a fun and talented dude. He revealed that he has 100 songs in his repertoire, too. He also plays characters and puts on masks. He's traveled the world, but in his head.

    Find out about the characters and more by watching our chat. It's best if we let him do all the talking as he discusses his track "Ricky Ricardo."



    In addition to discussing his music in our exclusive chat, he also talked about which movies correlate to his tuneage. He namechecks everything from Escape from L.A. and Encino Man.
