ShooterMAC - Im Wit Video - Shootermakaveli


Born during the emergence of hip hop as a culture, Kelven Hunter Jr., popularly referred to as "Shootermakaveli," or "ShooterMAC" entered life in the 1980’s. Growing up in a neighborhood known as "Acres Home," located on the well known north side of Houston, Texas. Shootermakaveli experienced tragedy early in his childhood when his grandmothers home burned to the ground, killing his grandfather. After the loss of his childhood home, ShooterMAC and his grandmother relocated to the northeastern side of Houston where he graduated from SMILEY high school under the stern upbringing of his grandmother.
" I think I developed an ear for music in my younger days riding in the car with my dad," ShooterMAC reminisced to his first run-in with hip hop at the age of 7. "I remember when I first heard “A Pocket Full of Stones” by UGK... and that just did something to my mind..." Other influences came directly from the streets of Houston, as Scarface and Chamillionaire stood up for his home city. As life continuously threw ShooterMAC curve balls, he was constantly ridiculed for being the new kid from the other side of town, and also the darkest. Isolating himself from the taunts, ShooterMAC grabbed his pen and went to work. He would lose himself in the hip hop that bonded him with his father. Deeper and more detailed his rap passion became, and along with it came a fast -paced freestyle that he became known for- Thus the contraversial name "ShooterMAC" surfaced. The "MAC" stands for Move Any Crowd as this lyrical artist shoots his bars in a rapid-fire cadence.

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
