Mr. C: Interview

\\

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

The Absolute, Fun, Determination.

 

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

I am That.

Why do you do what you do?

For both pleasure & out of duty.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

I knew I wanted to work in Music full time when I became a street rapper aged 16 but didn’t know how I’d get involved. I started rapping in clubs when I was 18 & made my first tune when I was 21, the same year I started spinning. It was my love of Soul, Fuck, Disco, Old School Electro & Rap that led me to choose this as my career.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

It’s a very closed industry & really is a case of not what you know but who you know. I had to make a lot of effort to get noticed & literally break in the back door. The key people who helped once I’d got my foot in the door were Ron Tom, Jasper The Vinyl Junkie & Eddie Richards but for the most part I helped myself. For acting my tutor was John Osborne Hughes where I learned the Spiritual Psychology of Acting. He got me back onto the path of Enlightenment after several years of no longer meditating, which led to me teaching.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

My Self & the Universe have been my inspiration to become who I am, but my step father David Stratful introduced me to Meditation & Positive Visualisation when I was 17, which really was the kick start in making my dreams come true.

I’ve inspired many people directly with my music & DJing. I also teach Meditation & Creative Visualisation & have had over 500 clients, most of who have picked up the ball & ran with it.

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

I make mistakes almost every day of my life. This comes from taking risks. If you don’t take risks you make very few mistakes & learn nothing. I learn from all of my mistakes as I’m lucky enough to have enough insight to recognize my mistakes & man enough to admit them.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

I’m constantly producing music as Mr.C, East LA Tek & Indigo Kidz & my new Mr.C “Illusion EP” is about to be released on 20th April. I’m also working very hard with my Superfreq label & events & I’ve just stated putting together a new band, which I’ll hopefully be able to announce fully by the summer once I’ve put the band members together & got some songs down. I’m also a budding method actor & plan to push much harder on that front too this year.

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

The only thing that’s really important in life is happiness. Most of what we desire is nothing more than illusion & not important. The best advice I can give is to get rid of fear, worry, anxiety & stress. This can be done by practicing daily meditation & letting go of your attachments. All attachments are ego & will only make you upset in the long run. Also be grateful for everything as gratitude is happiness.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

It’s time to stand up against the Elite Rich & their lies. It’s believing their lies that allows them to retain control over us. Join the Love Revolution now.
