New Music: “Dream Catcher”

I love interviewing artists that have a passion for their music. I had the pleasure of interviewing this young man that goes by the name J-Bone a.k.a. JusBizness a while ago and decided to follow up with him and listened to his new cd “Dream Catcher” of which can be purchased at cdbaby.com, and to see what he has been doing since we last spoke. He is a veteran hip hop artist and founder of the “Grip Hop” Movement. He has penned a single to reinforce a positive image of black women. J-Bone grew up in a single parent household with a bevy of strong black females. It was the stark contrast to the way black females were portrayed in the hip hop industry that inspired him to release the Black Girl’s Anthem. “I wrote this song because I thought hip hop needed it. Some black women are always called every name but their own. Many of them even find that acceptable. I was raised by a strong black woman and I’m married to one, so yeah, this song is more than just selling records.” J-Bone made a name for himself when he was signed to 212 Records in 2000 and featured in the Source Magazine December 2000 issue. He worked with other esteemed artists such as Kool Kim from the UMCs and producer Nasty Nova. J-Bone also founded the group F.U. (Forever United) and his single, “Same to Me”, was in stores worldwide. Since the early 2000s, J-Bone’s music has headed in a different directions which unknowingly gave birth to his “Grip Hop” Movement. The Grip Hop Movement is exactly what it sounds like; it grips you. In other words, it grabs your attention because it’s not supposed to be like everything else. J-Bone added. J-Bone a.k.a. JusBizness founded the” Grip Hop” Movement in 2004 with the late producer and musician Eugene Singleton. The Grip Hop Movement has included community mentoring, political involvement and community performances.

SM: I listened to the album “Dream Catcher”. Great job by the way! What has happened since our last interview?

JB: Since our last interview I’ve been very busy at my job and working on completing this album, while supporting my wife with her new commercial cleaning business. I’ve been trying to dedicate more time to my real estate business as well, so I can really build more capital which will help me invest in doing the things I love.SM: What is the premise for the entire album?

JB: The premise for this entire album was to put quality hip-hop music that’s profanity free, but still real enough for everyone to relate to no matter where you’re from. Basically, I wanted to create an album that had a variety of songs that possessed lyrical content from the club tracks to the deep political conscious songs. An all around hip-hop album that was 100% profanity free so that all ages could enjoy the music.

SM:  If you could describe the feeling that you were having while writing and during recording of each song, what would it be?

JB: If I had to describe the way I was feeling while I was writing and recording this album; I would say determined and motivated.

SM: What would be your favorite song thus far?

JB: I have more than one favorite song on the album, but if I had to choose one I would say ‘MY COUNTRY’ because it really touches on the injustices going on in America. I think it’s important for us to know the history of systemic racism and how much it impacts people of color.

SM: Are you currently working on any other projects? Any collaborations?

JB: I took a little break from the studio, due to my busy work schedule and managing our side businesses, but I have recorded a few new tracks which will be on an upcoming EP Hip-hop and R&B album I’m putting together with a producer/ musician I’ve been collaborating with.

SM: Contact info?

JB: You can find my new Cd “Dream Catcher” on cdbaby.com

Behind The Scenes Of the I Survived Gospel Concert

MakeoversRecently, Women With Gifts presented the I Survived Gospel Concert on Saturday, March 7,2015. Women With Gifts is an organization for women that Women With Gifts is an organization of women using their gifts and talents that GOD has blessed them with. Our organization believes in leadership development, teaching and motivating others. One of the reasons that we, Enticing Resultz Magazine is so involved with this event because we were abled to be sponsors of this event. Since the event was organized by LaNette Kincaid ,we not only wanted an exclusive interview about the event itself, but we also wanted more of a behind the scenes account of the event as well. Here’s a detailed interview about 2015 I Survived Gospel Concert.

ER: What is the purpose for the I Survived Gospel Concert?Dunbar Choir

LK: Ultimately, ISGC is a concert and movement to allow survivors to have a platform to tell about the issues that they have experienced in regards to breast cancer, domestic violence, and sexual abuse. In addition, it was created to bring survivors and “pre-survivors” in one place. Pre- Survivors are people wanting to be in a survival state but they are not quite at the survivor stage yet. Gospel music heals the soul unlike other music genres that put you on a superficial high for a brief moment. So with you put the two together the concert was born.

ER: What surprised you about this event?

LK:I must say I was shocked about the survivors that came out to support the event. I’m also shocked by the people who randomly told me their survivor stories and they don’t know me, but they feel safe telling about their experience. I didn’t want to say anything about this but, I was also shocked that this event didn’t gain the exposure of major news outlets. I just knew that the public and the community would want to know about something positive happening in the city and state besides crime.

Another shocker was when I received an inbox the week of the event telling me that reality show “I Can Only Be Me” was going to not only attend the event but they would be filming certain parts of the show. I was totally shocked by that. I even cried!

ER: Why is it so important for ISGC to get media coverage or exposure?

LK: Media exposure for this event is important because sexual abuse and domestic abuse is now considered to be more of an epidemic or a pandemic in our society. Notice I used words that we normally use when speaking about diseases, but that the affect that these two abuses are taking on society. I mean really our children can’t even attend school anymore without hearing that their teachers are having sex with their peers. In addition we hosted this event at Paul Laurence Dunbar High School in Fort Worth, Texas. Although Dunbar is a great school with great educational programs on the inside, on the outside of the school everyone has branded this area as Stop Six-a community known for poverty and gang violence. With that being said, when something bad happens in the community media outlets are right on the scene reporting these horrific incidents. Why not report when the school is involved in something positive. By the way the school and the community has made great improvements by based on the lack of media coverage no one really knows that.

ER: What did you like most about the event?

LK: The overwhelming amount of support and the survivors telling their story at this event.. Their stories would start somewhat sad but end on a triumphant note. One thing that stuck with me even after the event is an example that Evangelist Patsy Cole used she compared experience of sexual abuse and being molested as a child to an olive being crushed and bruised but still producing oil. That comparison was so real for me. As survivors we all have gone through something, but we are still standing. Her statement was so profound. Afterwards each honoree was presented with a gift from the Chief Of Police, Rhonda Robertson. Granted, anyone could have given the honorees the gifts but it meant something for them to receive such honor from Fort Worth’s Chief of Police.

ER: Tell us about the performers and why they were selected for the ISGC.Nicole Lashaun Ministries Chozen Tx

LK: First let me say that I when I first started this process I wasn’t looking for any superstars that would think they were larger than this vision or larger than the purpose of the event itself. The full purpose of this event is about the survivors- this is their platform.Gwen GiGi Gray DSC_0251

Each of the performers brought something major to this event.

In start, New Generation and Minister R. L. Taylor & The Sons Of The Father were selected for lovers of traditional down home quartet gospel music.

Spirit of David and Nichole Lashaun is for lovers of great choir songs and also praise and worship music. Nichole Lashaun is also a preachers kid that leads and teaches vocal lessons. She recently performed at a gospel concert at The House of Blues.

Christian rapper and minister, I am Justified and quartet group Chozen were both selected for the youth, hip generation.

Gwen Gi Gi Gray is a jazz gospel singer and besides her being able to sing , I wanted her to be the example of the current Dunbar students and people of the Stop- Six District. Gwen is a Dunbar alumni who has a successful singing career. Her performance was followed a short motivational speech by Coach Robert Hughes Sr.-retired Dunbar Basketball coach, who led Dunbar to 35 state championships and 5 national championships. Lekisha Earles was referred to me by my prayer partner Pastor Clara Peters and when I heard her voice and read her bio I was sold on her being a part of the show. At the time, I had no idea that she was a cast member of I Can Only Be Me Reality Show. Last but not least, Dunbar High School Choir and band performed at our concert which was truly a bonus to the concert.

ER: If you could you change anything about the ISGC what would it be??

LK: It’s without saying that this concert could’ve use some tweaking. I Survived Gospel Concert was my first production of this magnitude. In addition to this being my first big production, I want to add that I wasn’t able to truly start planning until I received a final approval from the school district to host this event at their school. We didn’t get that approval until December of 2014. So in essence, I only had 4 brief months to pull everything together. I didn’t have a do-over button so I couldn’t change anything. I only want to take the experience from March 7,2015 and make 2016 I Survived Gospel Concert better.

Although I wouldn’t change the performers we had, I do want to clarify that this event is for African-Americans. The ISGC platform is for anyone who can really sing. It is also our goal to connect with more organizations to meet the needs of our survivors and pre-survivors.

ER: What do you expect from future ISGC events?

LK:I am striving for nothing but the best with these events. My ultimate goal with this event is to reach both survivors and “pre survivors” and eventually mend the gap between the two. In other words this event will be the platform as well as a healing ground for the people who have had battles with breast cancer or the experiences of sexual abuse and domestic violence. In saying that, I also want to reach families who have lost loved ones to these causes. I may be a tad spoiled but since our first show had a reality show involved I would love to keep the reality show present. That was pretty cool.

ER: What was the greatest experience of the ISGC this year?

LK: Meeting all of the performers and honorees and it was just like a big family reunion I picked up LaRonda Humphrey, one of the honorees who travelled from New Orleans and we talked for hours like we were sisters. I loved our sponsors that helped with the vision.

I loved seeing the honorees get makeovers from Chalkface Inc. Seeing some of the artists get makeovers before performing and having sound check put this production on another level. I kept thinking, “wow God this is serious”.

ER: What were some of the shows setbacks?

LK: When I first talked to my prayer associate Pastor Clara Peters about my plans with the show, she warned me to be prepared for setbacks of the show . She also warned me to always have a plan B.

Here were some of the setback of ISGC:

Host of the show

First host cancelled because I didn’t send the hotel reservation via email within the time they expected Not making excuses but during this same time my aunt passed and my brother was in the hospital. I didn’t communicate that to the host because I wanted to keep my personal life separate from planning

After finding another host for the show beyond our control, we lost the host in a split second. Dunbar High School is an older high school and wheel chair accessibility hasn’t been updated for the auditorium’s stage. Our host needed to be able to host from the stage and there was not a way our production or school could make that happen. Although I was really disappointed about that situation, I had to remember that things like this was one of the reasons for ISGC to give back to the school. A portion of the proceeds from the ticket sales were donated back to Dunbar High School. On a better note about the host and co- host of the ISGC, we landed Pastor Mel Keys of J Radio, author of Joshua Generation “Hell To The Know” and pastor of Joshua Generation and Tessa Allen from spotlight radio show in Houston . What a pair they were amazing!

My Health

In January 2014, I got extremely sick I thought I was dying. Turns out I was food poisoned, but this illness lead to other findings in my health. Not only was I severely anemic, I had two tumors on my ovaries. So to fast forward I finally decide to have surgery in October of 2014 to have issues corrected.. So I was contacting potential artist in October praying that they would stay on board while I recuperated from my surgery.

Mother Nature

Two weeks before the event the weather in Texas was a mess, just horrible. my plans were to be like a street team type of marketing right before the show. It was ice everywhere! Only in Texas will it freeze one day and the sun shining the next day. I love my state!

Untrustworthy People

People who pretended they really wanted to be a part of the vision. People who lied about ticket sales, people who lied about graphics we needed and couldn’t meet the dead line. People, People, People…..and I literally could go on about this all day. In saying ,all this about the negative. God really turned the negatives into positives. I’m grateful for that. Although these things sound horrible I actually laugh at how God still blessed and improvised throughout every circumstance.

OUR TICKETS:

Our tickets weren’t really a setback, but I wanted to mention them because all I cared about was how cute and professional the tickets were. I mean really these tickets looked as if you were going to superstar type concert and I didn’t realize until the week of the event that they didn’t have a time on them. Oopsie!

ER: What were the overall highlights of the show

LK: My mother was one of the honorees of the show. We also had a moment of silence for our host, Pastor Mel’s mom who he lost in December of 2014. That was huge!! Our show started to the beats of the Dunbar band which shocked everyone. Even me! I must say that Dunbar’s band and choir is one of the most talented in FWISD.

ER: Any one last minute thoughts?

LK: Yes, Thank you to Mr. Carlos Walker, the principal of Paul Lawrence Dunbar High School. It is very hard trying to keep religious functions in our schools and I thank him for allowing and approving the ISGC to take place at this school. I will never forget him for that. Thanks to my 13 year old Lady Zee she actually turned into a beast to market and promote my events and then after their over she turns back into a cute little book worm. Hugs and love to everyone for your love and support.

I tried to post all of our highlights on every social media network possible so please follow us at #ISurvived2015   or @ISurvived2015

ER: What advice would you give people creating an event or production ?

LK: Have a back-up plan for everything. Play in your mind as a perfect event , then you wipe your mind clean and replay your event again. The second time be sure to include possible disasters. Don’t trust everyone.. Don’t’ assume that everyone wants you to have a successful event.

Don’t give up !Don’t get distracted ! Turn off the phone, turn off the social media, 1 month,1 week before the event. You will love yourself for it. Stay focused on your event!

Diggy Simmons

As usual, I’m always pleased to get a connect with Future Star DJ’s whenever there is business with a major recording artist. When you get to have a conference call with a major recording artist from Atlantic Records such as Diggy Simmons, you tend to forget that he is only 19 yrs old. A pop culture icon for the teenagers, but making music for the cross over generation. His music is a hit in the clubs as well. Diggy Simmons is a star on the rise. Coming to the scene a few years ago debuting hits such as “Copy and Paste” and “4 Letter Word”. This young man, the son of Rev. Run (“Run” of Run DMC), and the nephew of Russell Simmons. Growing up around the music industry, this young man has become an icon. At 19 yrs young, he gets a lot of his inspiration from artists such as Anita Baker, Sade, Kanye West, and many others. He says that in 5-10 years, He just wants to be “happy making music”. I would say that he is ahead of his time. He introduced his first single off of his EP “Out of This World”, titled “Ain’t Bout To Do” which is about a young man “stepping up to the plate to do what your man won’t do.” This song in his own words was “cohesive”, all of the parts just fit together. This single which was produced by DJ Mustard, Featuring French Montana, was a hit before he even knew it. After hearing the beat by DJ Mustard, he immediately thought of French Montana to lay some verses down, because of his “NYC vibe”. Diggy wanted it to be something for the people, especially the NYC nightlife. He has another single “Honestly”, that you can view for yourself below. Expect to hear a new songstress that will be featured in some of his music by the name of “PJ”, she has that Lauryn Hill type of vibe, and another new voice that shall remain a secret until his EP “Out of This World”, is available for purchase. Stay tuned and stay up to date with what Diggy has going on. For booking contact his manager Laurie @lauriedobbinsgayle@gmail.com.

Jonathan-6869-1 (2)

Jonathan Valencia

“Jonathan Valencia is a 13 year old Gospel Recording Artist who loves Jesus. He is taking the music industry by storm with his bold and confident yet humble demeanor. As an independent artist, in just over a year he has accomplished some astonishing things. He has been nominated for 3 awards for Rhythm of Gospel Awards, a nominee for the Texas Gospel Music Excellence Awards for New Artist of the year and received 2 Prayze Factor People Choice Awards. He won the showcase for the Most Outstanding New Artist of the Year at the Texas Gospel Music Excellence Awards. He has a debut album titled ‘Kingdom Bound’ which was released January 2014. He has been featured on national TV on Gospel Music Presents with Shirley Murdock, Kelly Price, Regina Bell, Beverly Crawford, Howard Hewett and others. Jonathan has had the opportunity to open for Lisa Page Brooks, Slims Supreme Angels and he is confirmed to open July 19, 2014 for Canton Jones in Waycross, Georgia.

He was born in Jacksonville, Florida on August 3, 2001.  At the early age of 3, Jonathan’s idea of play was preaching on his Karaoke machine.  He has always enjoyed attending church.  One memorable moment was when he was about 4 years old and he fell asleep at a night service.  I carried him to the car and as we reached the car, Jonathan woke up with a big stretch and stated something like ‘Boy that devil will sure put you to sleep’.  I laughed out loud because I knew how he loved to be up and engaged in church.  Jonathan has always been recognized as being deeply grounded in God’s word and bold about his walk with Jesus.  Many Pastors would often state that Jonathan was a little preacher.  As for me, I refer to him as my tugboat because he has pulled me along in my spiritual walk.  He has been given the opportunity to preach in 4 churches in Jacksonville, Florida.  He has performed in various church plays and has performed a Christian song on a local television station several years ago.  He has delivered messages at several youth events in churches throughout Jacksonville, Florida. Jonathan expressed his concern for his peers singing songs that brings curses and death to their lives and his concern resonated in me.  Being inspired by God, I began to do what I love to do which is to write.  As a result, my words poured out as a song I titled ‘Kingdom Bound’.  The song was written for Jonathan to use to inspire other youth to pursue their calling now.  Matthew 19:14 speaks directly to us on how we should prepare children for the kingdom.  Jonathan’s grandfather has been a spiritual mentor and someone who Jonathan follows.  Bible studies are their most favorite time together.  Jonathan has a deep love for Jesus and wants to spread the good news to the world.  His first release “Kingdom Bound” is for everyone but the target audience is the youth due to Jonathan’s sincere concern for his peers who listen to explicit lyrics.  He understands that many of the words they repeat are not good for their minds and many of his peers are not even aware of the things they are speaking on their lives through the lyrics they repeat.  Jonathan wants to introduce positive words that his peers can repeat over their lives.  His favorite sport is basketball and he enjoys playing football too. Jonathan continues to rely on his faith in God’s word to overcome obstacles that have challenged his faith. The obstacles have caused him to develop a consistent prayer life and commitment to learn scriptures.  Jonathan is currently ministering his music in churches and various events.  His boldness in serving Jesus is evident when he is on stage professing the name of Jesus.”

-M. Valencia (Jonathan’s mom)

 

SM: How has your walk with Christ been over the years, being that you are so young? How do your peers feel? Do you influence them to walk the path of righteousness? How do you handle opposition?
JV: A. It has been a good walk because Christ has always been in my life. My peers know I am a Christian. Sometimes they are curious and ask questions and I am able to witness through their curiosity. A few of my peers are Christians and when they are influenced by the world, I remind them of their walk with Jesus. They may curse or sing inappropriate music and I tell them that as Christians we have to show the world our light. Opposition was more difficult to handle when I was younger but I find myself being wiser in handling opposition as I grow spiritually in the word of God.


SM: Who musically influences you? Who would you like to work with in the near future?
JV: Fred Hammond, Cece Winans and Marvin Sapp

SM: This question is for mom: What has been your greatest struggle raising a young minister of the Gospel? Did you ever feel that you wanted him to slow down and be a “regular” kid?

MV: The greatest struggle was dealing with various issues in school. No, My desire is for him to be who God has called him to be. I notice that Jonathan is happier and more confident than “regular” kids.

 

SM: What is family environment like? What do you do for fun? Any siblings? How do they feel about your success?

JV: Our family is very loving and supportive of each other. We strive for excellence and being humble. Basketball is something I enjoy and I also enjoy having bible studies with my Grandfather and Dad. I have an older and younger brother. I am grateful to have the opportunity to share Jesus with people.


SM: Is there anything that you would change? Musically?

JV: No, I cannot think of anything.


SM: How do you see your life progressing within the next 5years? 10 years?

JV: I see me preaching God’s word, so I am learning as much as I can to prepare for that time.

 

SM: Did you ever think that you would get this far in your career? How have you faced challenges?

JV: I never thought I would be singing at this level but when we began this journey, I spoke that God would increase our ministry to be internationally known. I pray about them and trust God to handle the challenges I face.


SM: What would you pass on to the next generation?

JV: I would tell them what I normally say to everyone and that is to keep God first and He will bless your life and help you through anything that you go through.
SM: Any closing remarks?

JV: My album “Kingdom Bound” was created to speak life and blessings over the lives of anyone that repeat the lyrics. It is available in most digital stores, such as ITunes, etc.

New Music Artist Spotlight: Lamar Starzz

 

I had the pleasure of listening to this hot new artist Lamar Starzz after being invited on a conference call with Future Star DJ’s. That night they were hosting a call with Music legend and Producer Jermaine Dupri and a few other new artists and dj’s. I must say that after connecting and listening to up coming cd which has not yet been released (“Elevation”), I was glad that I did.

Lamar Starzz is an R&B singer/songwriter based out of Atlanta, Ga. “Elevation” Cd soon to be released (date tba). New single/remix “Try Me” that you can listen to now which is a remake of Dej Loaf’s “Try Me” has been sounding off and ringing bell’s. He has previously released mix tape/cd’s in 2013 such as “H.E.R.” and “H.E.R. II” LAMAR-STARZZ-H.E.R.-FRONT LS-Front-Coverwhich is an acronym for “Hear Everything Right”, this young man buzzing. After listening to his music, it reminded me of some of the classic love ballads mixed with a twist of the 90’s love songs up to the “new age”. You will definitely feel the urge to love again. From past soundtracks up to the new releases off of his up coming Cd ” Elevation” which is soon to be released, he has upped the ante to “Grown People Music” and has taken it to another level. You can track him and his upcoming concerts at www.bandsintown.com (or download the app). Check out his website www.lamarstarzz.com. You can also follow him on Twitter/Instagram @LamarStarzz, FaceBook fan Page @Lamar Starzz, YouTube, search “Lamar Starzz”.

Music: SUPA EMCEE aka SUPREMACEE BROWN (Part 1)

After speaking with this young man that goes by the name of Supa Emcee aka Supremacee Brown, I see why he has been given the title “Supa Emcee” and he is definitely “The Immortal”. With fire blazing tracks and sharp hooks, this young man is tantalizing the scene. Raw edginess coupled with sharp rhythmic vocabulary. His vernacular is simply “dope”. You get the hip hop fusion of dope beats, and classic hooks. I love this music! This is one guy that you want to keep on your radar. He is a “Renaissance” man within his own right. You can actually call him a young legend. Officially from Highland Park, Michigan; within the Metro Detroit Area. Detroit (Home of Motown/”Hitsville U.S.A.”). This area once housed “Chrysler”, in fact it was headquartered there before it moved in 1992. This area was also home to a few movies like “8 Mile” that was filmed in 2002, of which Supa Emcee was a part of. The movie “Four Brothers” in 2005, the documentary “The Waterfront” in 2007, the film “Gran Torino” in 2008, the film “Highland Park” in 2009, “Real Steel” in 2011.

A friend of the family by the name of  Cherelle (female songstress of “Saturday Love” with Alexander O’Neal) encouraged his mother to have him start writing his rhymes down. Well…….the rest is history!

The successes of these projects graduated into the inception of his label “Prooven Records/Hood Hero Ent,“ in 2011, which celebrated its first release the “Supremeacee” LP (2011/12). The project was lent great distinction with the help of platinum producers Nick Speed “G-Unit” & Mr. Porter “D-12.” Additionally, his free-style talents have been no secret, blowing away audiences at the taping of UPN’s “Moesha” and “The Parkers” television shows.

Supa Emcee believes in his community and is committed to giving back through community involvement, advocacy, and education. In fact, his talent was truly giving back to the community.

In 2012, he was featured on the J Dilla compilation project “Rebirth of Detroit,” and was featured on the lead hit single “Dillatroit,” alongside fellow artist, Nick Speed and Guilty Simpson. The popularity of this track inspired a tour around the globe throughout England, Germany, Scotland, France and Denmark with fellow artists Guilty Simpson and the legendary Phat Kat aka “Ronnie Euro.” In late 2012, he released his first duo LP with fellow Dreadnaughtz member Konphlict “Blue Knight to Red Dawn” and his popularity has continued to grow with his brilliant use of social media like YouTube. His countless, unique, epic video releases spotlight his creativity and lyrical talents with videos that compliment nearly every track off of his recent “Supremacee” release. This ultimate emcee brings new strength, high dynamics, creative rhymes, and innovative styles to hip-hop. Michigan’s “Marvel Lyricist” is definitely a superstar in the making and the one to watch for in the years to come!”IMG_392319285257261

Music: Calimar White

 

I interviewed  a young man on my radio show Blackberry Hip Hop Radio a while back, I must say he was interesting, very humble and enthused about what the future holds for him. I decided to let the world hear from him for a second time.

Calimar White is a St. Petersburg, Florida Native that has been silently making a name for himself by coming with a distinctive voice and style of his own. If it wasnt for his grand parents listening to music of their time, it wouldnt have sparked his creative ideas to use that same music in his music which we listen to today. ” I always knew how to put words together, i just needed that one producer who can convey my style and energy through the ears of the universe”. Calimar White linked up with Stephen Whitaker also know as Trac Solution Beatz, and started to deliver a sound that is vintage and all their own.

SM: Please talk about your single Friday? What is it about? How did it come about?

CW: The single Friday came about with me just sitting in the studio with my producer Trac Solutions and we were just going through some beats and this one beat caught my ear, despite the beat just having a sample and bass line, I knew it would be a hit once my producer finished it. I asked why he didn’t finish it and he told me that it belonged to someone else but the guy never made his deposit so he never finished the beat for him. So I told him I was interested in the beat and we put it together right then and there.  He made the beat for me, emailed it to my phone, and I wrote the song that same day at work. The reason I wrote it at work so I could convey the feeling of a long week of work and Friday finally comes around, last day of the work week, payday, night life etc. And once you hear the beat and the lyrics, that’s the exact feeling you get or you SHOULD get.

SM:  Music distribution, how important is that for you?

CW:  I think for an Artist, music distribution is very important,  whether you’re distributing the music yourself or have a company doing it for you. Me personally, I’ll take both. To have a large, broad and diverse fan base I feel that you should want to get your music heard all over. That’s my goal cause I know I have so many styles that comes with my talent that I can reach out to different fan bases. I make music for everyone. I don’t discriminate, I’m not afraid to be myself.

SM: What plans do you have for your music? How do you see yourself in the music industry 5-10 years from now?

CW: The plans I have for my music is for it to just stay relevant. There’s a difference between relevant music and moment music. Moment music is music you will probably only feel in the club or if you’re in the car with your friends on the way to a party or something.  And that will probably only last to a good 4-7 months. Where as you have relevant music that if 5-10 years from now it will still give you that same feeling you had when u first heard of it. I.e. Friday. So 5-10 years from now I see myself being relevant for the simple fact that I’m an artist and I know how to compose good music.

SM: Who has been your mentor? Who would you like to work with?

CW: Well I have alot of mentors but the 2 that stands out the most are T.I. and Tune. The very first time I actually started listening to lyrics in a song was when T.I. released his first album “I’m Serious” and ever since then I’ve been one of his biggest followers. I became an avid listener of Tune when he released ” The Carter” and basically anything he released after that I knew word for word. I’d love to work with them two but there’s many more people I’d like to work with as well.

SM: Are there any regrets or changes that you would make, looking back at your life in the beginning of your music career until now?

CW:  Regrets? I don’t have any. Everything I’ve been through made me the person I am today. From playing little league football to the jail sentences. I’m definitely glad that I went to prison because I wasn’t even thinking about rapping before then. But I believe I went through that for God to sit me down and reveal what he had for me. So I stayed prayed up and eventually he revealed it to me and that was the gift to make good music. So I don’t have any regrets, I’m definitely grateful for everything God put me through cause it got me here today where I am.

SM: Who would you like to collaborate with in mainstream?

CW: I’d like to collaborate with August Alsina. He has the type of style where if you’re a female that don’t like rap then you can just put his music in and he’ll give you the element of rap but he’s singing with it. And I never heard no one do it like him. To me, he’s the first to create that sound. I’d have to call it R&B “Rap and blues”. Other than him, there’s a lot more mainstream artist, not just mainstream but artists period, if they take their craft serious, I’d love to collaborate with.

SM: Would you pass on your knowledge? If so, what would you pass on to the next generation?

CW: To the next generation,  I’d just tell them, don’t be afraid to be yourself, invest in yourself, and pray and believe.

SM: Any last remarks?

CW: S/O to Enticing Resultz Magazine for taking the time out of their busy schedules to conduct this interview with me. May God bless the whole staff.
