Thanks Queue and Jericho,

It's not over yet - I'll find the man - it's a challenge now.

It's on, Pete - we need definitive closure.

We will just show up at a book signing and slam the albums down. Maybe he will get the hint :)

Nice!! I'd be interested in hearing about his days with Lord Scotch, his favorite new music, and how he & Bobbito discovered Cage back in '92/'93.  Good work.

my #1 question. What would it take for Mr. Nash to go away for a bit and let the Prime Minister back and record a new album.

#2 If he were to record an album, how hard would it be to make a Boom Bap album with all the sample issues in todays scene.

#3 Does he miss it? The music, the shows, the fans, etc.

#4 Does he have any unreleased material he might release ala Serch and his new 94 sessions

#5 If he was to pick up a mic again, is there any artists he would like to work with? Was there ever any he wanted to work with but never did.

#6 His thoughts on the state of Hip Hop and shallow songs that dominate the air waves.

#7 Did Vanilla Ice ever try to reach out to any of you as a response?

#8 When we can we expect the new album :) heh

Thanks John.

Thanks Jericho, PL, East Coast and Offishall,

Keep those questions coming - I'm going to submit 15 to Pete. Let's get 50-60 together and edit it down collectively to 15.

Make sure to get some questions about his books and non-rap endeavors in there.

MistaJohn great work!!!!!!!!!!

I've been away for a bit...
Thanks for putting in that work to get in contact. 
Out of all of the years I've listened to music - all of the groups and individuals I've come to really like - Pete would be the one I am most interested in hearing anything about.

If you wouldn't mind asking about if he ever did follow up material to Dust to Dust that just got shelved (or Derelicts).
Like how many tracks that never saw the light of day.

If there was a video that was supposed to have come after Kick the Bobo off of the D2D album - I recall Yo mentioning that they had a new video from him (might have been refering to Kick the Bobo... but that had already been out for 3 weeks at that point).

His thoughts on the White Rapper Show.

This is great.

Thanks again, MistaJohn

I'm nosy, so I would like to know more about Pete on a personal level as well (outside of his music) like:
His favorite food
favorite movie of all time
favorite MC or hip hop group of all time (and why)
favorite vacation spot
favorite author
political views, if any
role models/heros if any
what music/artists he is currently listening to

Those are just some examples of things I would like to know.

Oh yeah, I would also like to know the last time he spoke w/ Serch, and if the two are on good terms (or is there still a little animosity)??

Interesting. Did he mind you contacting him at home?

Either way i'm with the others; is there any chance he'd consider returning to the game, even if solo; and was there any of his solo material pre or post "Dust To Dust" that was shelved he might send our way?

Who knows, those may not be good questions, but I know they're one's most of us want to ask anyway.

I suppose I am curious what stuff, baseball aside he's into nowadays, music wise, hobby wise, how's the fam, etc.
