I have a lot of artist hit me up on Twitter getting on my damn nerves, but this particular artist caught my attention. he retweeted and commented about a post I had with Emanuel DeAnda. I wanna say he listened to one of my shows and became a fan. He asked if he could send me some of his music and I was more than happy to listen to whatever he sent to my email. Due to the fact that he had became a new supporter for me. I support people that support me. So he sent me a email with a few songs and some very interesting facts that I will share with you in a few moments.
Now I'm not a prejudice person at all. So i was shocked when I saw that his was white and then when I heard Fasholey, my damn mouth dropped to the floor. I was completely caught off guard but in a good way. I instantly became a fan of his. i had to get him on the show and let my listeners hear his flow. Being from the Bay area, you already know their accent is crazy and in the music world, it enhances the flow.
So I got him on the show and I was truly pleased with him and his interaction. And then he made me blush with all the compliments he was giving me. he even asked me out on a date. I dont date artist but if he is ever close enough, then he will mos def be the first one. He mind set is truly amazing just like his music. i had to put him on March Madness the mixtape. Now yall can listen to the interview and look at his video and I can stop typing. Im out. Lol!

I went to CIAA in Charlotte, NC from March 1-3, 2013. I had networking on the brain. I had a lot events I was going to cover but for some reason or another, they got cancelled. But being the out the box thinker that I am, I was able to bounce back and meet the owners of the Pole Magazine. I was suppose to go to the Dj Smalls meet and greet but there was some issues going on with the venue and was moved to the Hyatt Hotel.
Now I got to meet Dj Smalls but then came in J Lou from the Pole Magazine. I was very interested in what they had going on.
We started talking and they told me what they do and vice-versa. I told them what I did being the female Howard Stern, it set the tone for a wonderful conversation. The Pole Magazine is a new publication that is dedicated to spotlighting adult entertainment dancers. It's not like your typical eye candy magazine. It covers so many bases from style/fashion, artist interviews, alcohol teasers and most important full substance stories about the women in the dancing world.
I had the opportunity to bring them on the radio show and give them a platform to speak on their publication and the interview was quite interesting. yall already know that I'm not about to tell yall everything we talked about. Listen to the show and find out first hand what Pole Magazine is all about.
I had a great time with interviewing this artist. I always like working with artist that are from home town. This artist has been working in rap industry for a while. And his working is finally paying off with his first solo project "Be Water". This album is very deep and not once did Munchini use an profanity. Talk about being mindful of the people that listen to your music and sending a positive message. Read his bio and listen to the show and learn something today. lol
Munchini, born John Spruill III was raised in Greensboro and Charlotte, NC. Like many other hip-hop artists, he resided in what is commonly referred to as the "bad part of town" throughout his life. He jokingly states "you know that part of town the pizza places won't deliver to." He was fortunate enough to be raised by both his mother and father. Away from his daytime job, his father was also a church choir musician/director, often taking Munchini to rehearsal with him so he could keep him off the streets. Although involved in AAU basketball, Munchini also fell in love with music. He admits that he used to sneak across the street to the housing projects to be with some of his friends and hear the non-gospel music that he was not allowed to listen to at home. His first and perhaps the single greatest influence on his love of hip-hop are his cousins, who Munchini states are more like brothers. "Ro, Reggie, and JR man, they all used to look out for me in the hood and...they were all well-respected so they would let other kats know about me so basically I would go through different hoods and people would be like, 'you're JR's cousin right?' or whatever...and then I could ball or freestyle with kats from that hood without a lot of beef popping off, especially with my cuz Ro being known for freestyling in the area." After his freshman year of college, Munchini's group "Head Swelluz" decided to link up with a few other close friends who also shared the same love for hip-hop and form "Seven Seaz," who in March of 2000 released their first underground album entitled "The Genesis 2G." It received acclaim locally and the "Seaz" got their first ever radio spin with the song "Higher," which was played on a Friday night mix session. Although Munchini was not featured on that song, he was featured on the track "Betta Dayz" which was premiered on the local radio station 102 Jamz with the "Seaz" introducing the song to the listeners live from the radio station. That song was the first single released from the Seaz' first professionally recorded album "The Perfect Number," released in February 2002 (under their manager JR Troutman's company, Full House Production and Entertainment) which generated a much bigger buzz than "The Genesis" did. During this time, Munchini earned a reputation for being a deadly lyricist, winning the "Verbal Abuse" MC battle competition an unprecedented three times. Since then, several of the Seaz have been working on new projects together and solo. In 2005 Munchini won the Mic Club MC battle at Apache Cafe in Atlanta where he has been residing since early 2004. This led to him being featured on Cartoon Network during the debut of the Adult Swim show "Robot Chicken" and also triggered the start of his company Clever Elements which was co-founded by his best friend since childhood, Furie. Munchini has been working on production for new and upcoming artists, including "C Rok" a.k.a. "Mr Re-Up" from NC, "Young Tex" out of Dallas, and "Benji Burns" out of Jacksonville. Munchini was also a guest writer for Beat Linx Magazine, working with "Choo the Specializt," the award-winning producer and engineer who has produced classics for Tupac and Ghostface. After several bouts with illness, Munchini has just released his solo debut album "Be Water."
