Jerry Hsu appeared on the Cameron Adair Podcast (Adair, a producer, interviews artists and music industry movers and shakers) recently to talk about his new venture, Sci-Fi Fantasy, his upcoming book Nazi Gold (lol), and to reveal a few more details about his split from Emerica. According to Hsu, the split was mutual:
I was upset about [being let go], but fuck them for doing this in such a lame way. I don’t want to film video parts for them anymore; I don’t want to do stuff for them anymore. I was kinda like… tired of it. It was pretty lame.
In the interview, Hsu describes the steps he took after the smoke cleared—sending the contract to his lawyer, going full speed ahead with Sci-Fi Fantasy—which, when spoken in his signature soothing Maple syrupy voice is a pleasure. Hsu reflects on his sponsorless status with optimism and, to his credit, shares his insights about how the skate industry works with utmost pragmatism and very little bitterness. This chat is refreshingly open and definitely worth your time.
