All the way from Atlanta, GA, Mr. Flamboyant has been involved with the music industry since the age of 17, signing his first record deal while part of a rap group known then as the Southside Click. Check out his interview to see what he has to say…

HCM. How did you come by your stage/band name?

Mr. Flamboyant. A good friend in high school that was murdered gave me that name because of how flashy I dressed.

HCM. How do you feel about the present state of the music industry?
Mr. Flamboyant. I think it’s better now than before because it’s easier to release music with the help of social media.

HCM. Who influenced you to become an artist/band? And why?
Mr. Flamboyant. I grew up around music. My family influenced me. My mother was a singer. My paternal uncle was a drummer. My cousins are Hall of Famers Gladys and Bubba Knight and my Great Uncle is William Guest. My cousin Larry Blackman was also a Hall of Famer from the group Cameo. My stepfather was also a drummer.

HCM. Today’s music seems to be about collaborations with the “hottest” artist out. Who would you want to work with on a project? And why?
Mr. Flamboyant. I don’t just have one. To be honest I would love to collaborate with any and all of the “hottest” artist out. I love all genres of music.

HCM. Do you feel that you are an artist/band or entertainer? Explain.
Mr. Flamboyant. I feel like I’m an entertainer because I’m an Artist, Producer, Actor, and Engineer. I wear many hats in this industry.

HCM. Would you prefer to be independent or signed to a major?
Mr. Flamboyant. I prefer to be Indy but if the right deal was presented I would sign.
