I've been Writing and Producing for over half of my life. There have been times where even I have considered myself to be 'too different'. I grew up as an outcast. I never did fit into any groups or clicks; from a child all the way to Adulthood. The uniqueness has a tendency to play out through the music. It's not so much that I try to be different; I was chosen to be this way. My real frustration with the Rap Genre is the fact that it all sounds the same. Everybody's following everybody else. There's almost no passion or life left, because the essence of the art is often sacrificed for riches and fame. I've been rejected for being a different Artist; from the Streets to the Church. So much so, that I decided years ago to walk away from the Art, rather than compromise my uniqueness and my passion for the Art itself. Well, it seems I've been called back. I can't fight it anymore. There are some things that need to be addressed, and I've been called to take a stand. So here we go. Who's my target audience? You. This album will speak to generations; from the youth who desperately need a more positive image to look up to, to the older individuals who've never even listened to or respected rap before. My endeavor is to change the minds and lives of those who listen. 
Closure {klow-zhur} is something we all need before we can really move forward in life. Everyone has to deal with getting closure on some level. On this album, you will hear me dealing with specific issues I've had to face in the last 5 years, as well as some of the situations I've witnessed others face. You will hear rejection, bitterness, frustration, inspiration, and encouragement all in the same project. This is not your ordinary Rap album, and is therefore not for the ordinary listener. This is Life Music.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
