Why is celebrating Black music important to you?
Because Black Ppople have and continue to make such great contributions to music worldwide. Without the creative input that different Black culture’s brought to the game, music would be missing a lot of the flavor and ideas it now has.
What do you think of the current state of the music industry?
There are a lot of great artists backed by rich record companies that have the money to get their artists played in heavy rotation. But there are a lot of talented independent artists that should be heard. It would be cool to have sponsored radio stations that allow people to discover music from unsigned and independent artists and bands on the radio, not just the internet.
What is your favorite song currently?
Another Round by fat Joe & Chris Brown.
What do you love almost as much as music?
Peace, Love & Happiness
Who influences you most?
Everybody that works hard to achieve their goals and perfect their talents. It doesn’t matter what they do, just the fact of being dedicated to success and following through.
A world without music is…?
So very sad.
