The legendary Erick Sermon sat down for an exclusive interview with VladTV and spoke on a few of his upcoming projects, as well as shared his opinion on the state of Hip-Hop.

Sermon will be dropping his next album, ESP: Erick Sermon Perception, this year with a number of A-list features, including Mary J. Blige, Sheek Louch, Joell Ortiz, Too Short, Fred The Godson and of course the home team, Redman and Keith Murray.

When it comes to the state of Hip-Hop, Sermon feels the conversation is boring at the moment, but has faith in artists like Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole and Joey Bada$$ who could potentially turn things around for the culture.
