I see more freedom, more creativity and overall fun in music these days. The artists really know how to turn up and be themselves. I love it!

Why is it important to highlight independent artists?

Because most mainstream artists were independent at some time or another. I just want to acknowledge dope artists and give them the motivation to keep going.

Where have you experienced the biggest areas of growth over the last 5 years?

Hype Off Life has experienced phenomenal growth in its caliber of content. What started off as a blog, has now morphed into a magazine, YouTube channel, and now live events. Personally, I have been stretching out of my comfort zone to take Hype Off Life where I see it in my mind.

Hype Off Life is online, in print, has a show on YT, where do you see HOC going in the next 5 years?

I see Hype Off Life continuing to be a player in the game, in a major way. Events, expansion of our media coverage, headquarters, and all that great stuff.

Your anniversary coincides with Black Music Month and the annual celebration of music, the BET Awards. Why is it important to honor Black Music?

Black Music Month is a celebration of Black culture to me. I like to use the month to celebrate, reminisce and revisit the artists that paved the way for the sounds we hear today.

Tell us about Hype Off Culture?

Hype Off Culture is a collaborative event between Hype Off Life and a dope Black female owned independent label, Sistah Music Snax. It'll be held at LA's only Black owned Thai food restaurant, Giti Thai during B.E.T. Weekend. Aside from the showcase and panel, it'll be good vibes all around.

What do you hope participants will receive from the event, Hype Off Culture?

I'm building a community. So, I really just want those that stop by to have a good time, enjoy some good food, and mix and mingle with some good people. I also hope the artists in attendance walk away empowered, with the knowledge and fire needed to propel their careers amongst the stars.
