An Interview With Kelly Yvonne
I spend hours on YouTube searching for inspiration, creative projects and new things to try. It didn’t take too long for me to happen upon videos of Girl’s Next Door - a pole dance soiree - and one of the most prolific, innovative and creative artist I’ve come across, Kelly Yvonne.
An Interview With Natasha Leonora Spence (ItsReaLight)
There are few people I know personally who can control a stage. Who can capture an audience with their tenacity, confidence & poise. Entrance them with likeability & relatability. Sure, their are amazing singers, lyrical rappers & skillful poets - but it isn’t often you’ll get those qualities in one person.
An Interview With Ahmad Ali Lewis
I remember it vividly. I was siting with my bother in the trunk of what must’ve been a 1989 Ford F-350 pick-up truck; riding down the streets of San Fernando Valley in California. Two songs played over the radio that remain in my mind to this day — Snoop Doggy Dogg’s “Gin And Juice” and Ahmad’s “Back In The Day”.
An Interview With Lawrence “Larry” Gilliard, Jr.
Larry Gilliard, Jr. — best known for his role as D’Angelo Barksdale in Seasons 1 & 2 of HBO’s hit show, The Wire — took a couple moments to answer a few questions for CrazyDopetastic™.
An Interview With Martin Luther McCoy
I first heard of Martin Luther (aka Martin Luther McCoy aka Martian Luther) back in 2007 when I was browsing through television channels & stopped on VH1 Soul. An Erykah Badu video was on & on so I had to listen. When it ended this dude Martin Luther came up & I thought, “who’s this?” He began singing ‘NYCG (New York City Girl)’ & I became an instant fan of his art. I later purchased his albums The Calling & Rebel Soul Music; both of which are CrazyDopetastic™.
