This week things are starting heating up for ya boy Convict Da General! As he has his first live interview with MTV writer Julian from the most watched reality show "The Real World". Throughout the interview Julian asks Convict a series of questions regarding his background, personal influences and his ongoing schedule! It was crazy we had fans listening live from a link provided by letstalkwithjulian.com and people calling in to ask questions and share opinions. We felt like the people were really interacting with us, seeing that a lot of statements and comments were being retweeted. During the interview Julian talks about how he wasn't really a fan of the hip-hop genre but seemed to really like Convict Da General's music! One song he mentioned in particular happened to be a single off of the "Big Man On Campus" mixtape called "College Life". It's a very hype and adventurous record that i think would grabs any teenager's attention. Shortly, after he was done expressing his feelings on the Big Man On Campus Himself & the rest of his music the interview came to closure. Although Convict Da General Would like to give a special thanks to TheMeMeAgency for making the interview possible and Julian + MTV for blessing me with the opportunity of being featured on your podcast and talking the time find of who the man behind the music really is!
Meet Convict Da General & Chanel Monet
Tonight, I am very lucky to have two very, VERY talented people on for an interview. I have been working with Meme Agency, a small booking agency that represents stars such as, Ramona Rizzo from VH1's hit show "MobWives", and Final Draft, also know as "The Fab Five" who sing R&B, and Pop Music.
Convict Da General
Convict Da General is a Rochester, NY native that started rapping at the age of 12. Convict was blessed to have both parents in is life to keep his grades up, but he couldn't escape the harsh reality of the mean streets right outside his door. His friends were in the game and he decided to join them. Struggling with the decision to do what he felt was necessary to survive or find a way out with something he loved, rapping. Convict decision to rap became one of the best decisions he could've ever made. At the young age of 19, Convict has seen and experienced a lot but he wants the world to know that he is here to stay and conquer the rap game. Convict has dropped 3 mixtapes, teamed up with YNA, featured on the Grind Hard DVD, performed for BET Awards Weekend Artist 2 Know, The Peace Fest, The Penny Arcade, Water Street, and much more! This "Big Man on Campus" has been knocked down and pulled in all directions throughout his life at a young age. As a rapper, he expresses what many people his age go through and how sometimes you have to stand alone as one force, one movement in his upcoming mixtape "One Man Army" hosted by DJ Zeke.
