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."
A good friend asked me to interview Diezel from GSM. I was more than happy to oblige him. Diezel is a rapper from Detroit. He has an interesting bio.
Being an entertainer has always been in the cards for Kaamel “Diezel tha Hitman” Mathis. Diezel was born in Detroit, MI to a mother who was a professional jazz & blues singer, and a father who was a DJ. He looked up to artists such as Trick-Trick, NWA, Jay Z, Nas and Snoop Dogg, who all highly motivated him to develop his skills to quickly secure a spot in the entertainment industry.
Diezel’s first experiences with music came when he became Captain of the hip- hop group Goon Sqwad- a group whose music is known to give off a rugged and street vibe. After sharpening his skills with the group, Diezel began to take stages across the country alongside many that include his older brother Trick-Trick, Ice Cube, WC, and D12. But performing on stage as a rapper is not where Diezel’s journey ends.
Diezel has assumed the role of actor, securing spots in stage plays such as “A House Divided”, “Last Chance” and “It’s My Life”- as well as roles in the movie “Hostel 3” and TV movie “Last Man Standing”. He has also had his hand in writing, with credits on Trick-Trick’s albums “The People vs.” and “The Villain” released under Universal Motown and Koch records.
Along with wrapping up his first solo project “25-8-366” which is a mixtape set to hit the streets by December 2012, Diezel is also working on multiple film projects and is in the process of writing his own stage play. He has also been very vocal in displaying his love for his hometown of Detroit and is working to display the importance of unity amongst entertainers in the city. Diezel is quickly making his voice heard among many in the hip-hop community and beyond, and has no plans of fading to the background until his influence is felt by all
The show was crazy and a lot of fun. Diezel rode the hell out of the choclate wave. He will be in Fayetteville, North Carolina for the summer jam June 14-16, 2013.Make sure you follow him on twitter @DIEZELGSM And I love the fact that he answered my questions truthfully. Yall gotta listen to the interview and hear all the wild shit we talked about and some of the questions I asked him.

This show started off crazy because I had fucked up my time slot for the show. So I had to make the best of the situation so I didn’t lose the moment. I first came across Hungry HD from M3pa Services on Twitter. He was pushing his single Maple Fudge. The song reminded of old school hip-hop from back in the day. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not dissing the new generation of music but I grew up with legends like Rakim, KRS-1, LL Cool J, RUN DMC, just to name a few. So when I heard the song I was hooked. Then I had to learn more about this artist aside from him being lyrically blessed. I went to his website www. HUNGRYHD.COM. I went on the site and instantly became noisy as fuck. I learned about this artist thru his own words.
I was really touched with a personal issue that this Harlem rapper had dealt with and overcame it like a trooper. I had a new outlook on him and his career. I knew I had to have him ride da choclate wave. The show was very good once I worked out the bull shit with the time slot. He answered the listener’s questions and interacted a lot with my crazy ass. I have a way of getting artist to come out of their comfort zone and let their hair down. The listeners love it when the artist opens up about his personal and bedroom life. And I’m the right chick to bring it out.
He has a mixtape called “No Thanks 2 You” on datpiff.com. It has over 25k downloads and has gone bronze status on the site. His video “Maple Fudge” has over 50k views on YouTube. It’s clear to see that this artist in on his way to great start for 2013. Hit him up on his social media sites.
I have also included his mixtape and video so you guys can check him out. When you hit him up on Twitter, tell him the Choc sent you.

When I asked Rikers to come on the show, I wasn’t sure what he was going to say. Rikers is one of the most respected men in the industry. He is the VP of marketing for Stall and Dean. And he has his own Ruckers line that many artist have sported in their videos and photo shoots such as T.I., Jay-Z, Diddy, J Cole, are just a few. Rikers is also one of the best managers and artist consultant in the industry to date. Did I mention that he is from Brooklyn? Lol But seriously Rikers has go to be one of the sexiest men I know. His brain makes you want redefine yourself before speaking with him. He is an example of what a man should represent in the future. You can call him a role model if you would like but that isn’t a title he would give himself. He is truly a man with gifts that God blessed him to be able to share with anyone that comes in contact with him.
Rikers was booked for the same night for an interview with Pinky. I was truly excited to have him ride da choclate wave. I was very nice to a point and playful at da same damn time. Rikers touched on so many different key points during the interview. We even talked about Brooklyn cats paying for pussy. Big Crypt popped up the ask him some industry questions and Rikers was more than happy to answer them. That night was the night for artist to call in and get some free advice from him. He was kicking mad knowledge to the listeners and he was very engaging. He even had his lawyer riding da wave with him. Lucky for him, I couldn’t pop off like I wanted too.
We even started a conversation about kids today, sex and religion. We were the air so damn long that we got booted da fuck off the air. Part 2 of the show will be coming soon. Rikers is a very humble guy that is very approachable. So make sure you follow him @Rikers and then visit him on https://www.facebook.com/RikersEl
This was one of those show the had the promise to be good no matter what. I had the honor of having adult entertainer and rap artist PinkyXXX live on air. Men get overly excited when they hear her name. she is a seasoned veteran in the porn world. While still in the game, she has branched off into the music world and is making waves. When I first was booking the show, I was told I had her for 20 minutes but she ended up staying on the show for over 1 hour.
She came on the show and we talked about her porn career then she wanted to talk about her music because that is what she pushing right now. She had a humble personality and was very in tuned with her fans. She spoke about the people she worked with in da music industry. She talked about how females could send information that was curious about being in the adult industry. I even asked about her about any advice she had for me because Im thinking about doing a girl on girl strap on scene for my next dvd. She was like send my pics and bio to her. I gotta be honest and say I can hang with Pinky. Imma take it slow when I jump out the window. She is doing a lot of traveling to promote her single “Bands On Me”. We played a few of her tracks and I have to say her beats were hard as fuck. Big ups to Pinky for being a business woman and not being one dimensional. Follow her @TheRealPinkyXXX and make sure you visit her site www.PinkyXXX.com And you can click on the player to listen to the show and hear what you missed.
This show was long awaited. It had been a while since I spoke with Dylan and I couldn’t wait to catch up with my sexy friend. The last time he was on, I had given him a nickname “Mr. Lay Way” and it stuck with him. His followers on twitter saw my tweet and started calling him that. So I welcomed him with open arms once he chimed into the show.
We talked about his new mixtape called “Rise Of The Dark Knight”. Just the name alone had my sexy ass curious. I had Dahlia and jazzy on the show also and you know us together is a hott mess. So we talked about the making of the mixtape and the songs that he had sent me to play. He has this one track called “Anything You Want” and that song had my hips winding. I instantly thought about fucking to that song. That’s when he said some of his fans had even downloaded the mixtape and fucked to it. Now that’s my kind of mixtape. That song has a nice ass appeal to it and I really enjoyed it. Then we played “The Bridge”. I cant even lie, that beat was a classic KRS-1 joint. If you are a true hip-hop lover, then you know “The Bridge Is Over” was that shit. This song was very well put together. I truly enjoyed that track as much I did the first song. Dylan has skillz out of this world and I was truly honored to have him on the show.
Make sure you guys check out his new mixtape and his new video for “Anything You Want. Then you can follow him on his social networks sites by clicking on the links in this post. @DylanDili www.facebook.com/dylandili Instagram DylanDili
