Exclusive Interview with Hip Hop/R&B artist Sean Hampton





So Sean, being from Brooklyn, I know there's a beautiful and rough side to living in the inner city. Could you tell us little about your upbringing?


I was raised in the 90’s and early 2000’s. I was in foster care before 1yrs old and later adopted at the age 9. My mom was a single mother who moved around alot from place to place pretty much just living off foster checks and disability because of she was unable to work . I had to go outside and hustle to get nice things like Jordan's and Rocawear. I always had to work hard for everything I wanted in life.



If you had to paint a picture of your style of music, how would it look? 

If i had to paint a picture of my style of my music it would look like Leonardo Da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa” because my style is so well balanced. Its almost flawless. Detailed lyrics you could compare to the details in the Mona Lisa, variety of flows comparable to diverse features also of the Mona Lisa. 



Who are some of the notable people that influenced you to go your direction of musical choice? 

I would have to say that my biggest influence musically was Diddy because he showed me more musically. He showed me different styles and how there could be sub genres of rap/hip-hop. Lanes that alot of artist use now. Melodic rap, sample beats, remakes, remixes or etc; he would showed me that first. He wasnt too cool for any kind of style or idea he would take it there if he felt the vibe for it. And to be clear I'm talking strictly musical influence. Not the business side just the music.



Besides music, what other things you love to do?

I love sports, cooking, i love to spend time with my family, take trips around the world.



Can you tell us about your latest project?

My latest project “Honorable Mention” consist of 16 tracks. The title came from my journey in this game. I have been around awhile rapping and doing my things but I don't get mentioned much. There’s always a list of artists somewhere excluding my name. Now I just kind of embrace it for what it is. Thats why its called Honorable Mention. 


What are your near future plans? 

get more involved in the NFT world. Invest in real estate. Open a few more small businesses.



Anybody you like to work with? 

That would be a very long list lol but if I had to chose just one and it was like right here and now it would be Jay-Z.



Any last remarks? God is great!

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
