Khemist has lyrically conquered multiple beats. Sharing his life and speaking on every day issues meanwhile still using his lyrics to uplift , he has perfectly puzzle pieced everything that the game needs. He is not afraid to stand flat footed , go against the grain and project the deep thoughts that he has in my mind and his heart. Although he embraces world-wide topics in his music, he still vividly paints pictures of his Philly - born "Logan Valley" bread story . He isn't you average "rapper" . You have to listen to him and sometimes run things back just in case the intensity of the lyrics or his profound vocabulary went over your head. Khemist just released a project "WOLVES" and has a few other things in the works , so it was about time that we did and interview, check it out below.
1. The Mogul Girl : What does hip hop mean to you?
Khemist : It is an outlet for me to express myself and be creative with different sounds and sh*t like that.
2. The Mogul Girl : You've done a lot of shows . What has been your all time favorite set ?
Khemist : I was in D.C at Bohemian Tavern. I did a show with BJ Simmons ( a jazz artist). So it was a hip hop/jazz set. I recently did the Clef Club and had a ten piece band. I like it when I get to bring in instruments and can rock out with no restrictions.
3.The Mogul Girl : If you can change anything about the music industry what would it be?
Khemist : Politics. It gets deep. I've seen a lot of things and its been a lot of foul sh*t . It's a uphill battle but I knew this when I started.
4.The Mogul Girl : I'm from North Philly you're from Logan Valley what has growing up in your part of the city taught you?
Khemist : A bunch of street lessons and different codes. I know a lot of Cambodians and picked up on a few Cambodian words. Their language is "Khmer". I grew up in a house full of musicians and we had a piano. On the weekends when I went to my grandma's house in Nicetown she had a piano too and my uncle was a jazz musician. So I've always been surrounded by music.
5.The Mogul Girl: What are you currently working on ?
Khemist : The "Wolves" EP is out with Zaytona and DJ Rick Geez .Rick is from Philly but lives in V.A and he DJ's for Pusha T. My album is coming . I've been working on it for two years.
6.The Mogul Girl : Besides music what are some other things you're interested in doing?
Khemist : Reading , poetry, spoken word, and helping homeless people. I love art. When I was 12 my mom put me in art school. So I like painting with pastels and water colors.
7.The Mogul Girl : If you could have collaborated with any artist that passed away who would it be and why ?
Khemist : Michael Jackson! Just the music, instrumentals, high musicality, you can't find that anywhere else. I'd also collaborate with Prince. Since I've been in the studio I've referenced to and learned from Michael Jackson.Its one thing to hear great sh*t and know that it's great. It is another reason to want to know why it's great. Michael Jackson said in an interview once that " I study the great people". So that's why I study him.
8.The Mogul Girl : Is there anything you want The Mogul Minute readers to know ?
Khemist : The "WOLVES" EP is out. Scrap Metal 2 is in the works . The album is coming but there's still so much more to be done.
9: The Mogul Girl : Since I ask everybody about food in my interviews , what's your go to favorite food ?
Khemist : I would say a cheese steak but I haven't eaten meat in four months . I'm trying to change my diet. Its not easy but I still like whiting fish , so you could consider me being Pescetarian .
It was so dope to interview Khemist, because he's definitely been putting in a lot work in the studio and on every stage he's touched. He's lyrically telling his testimony from the streets . So get the "WOLVES" EP and stay on the look out for his upcoming album.

THE MOGUL MINUTE : JUST "LISTEN" TO THE BEAUTIFUL MUSIC MADE BY RON BULTONGEZ ( INTERVIEW WITH THE MOGUL GIRL )
I'm scrolling through Periscope a few weeks ago when I discovered this young man playing his guitar and singing. It only took a minute to see and hear the beautiful talent of Ron Bultongez. His voice literally gives you the chills. Its so pure and heart warming . I could not wait to interview him about his music and get to know more about Ron Bultongez . His voice is magical and the emotion, soul, genuine passion, positive words will quickly intrigue you. Originally from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, currently in Plano, TX Ron is continuing to let his voice be heard. He just wrapped his tour and is set to work on his full project. His new single "Listen" is on iTunes, Spotify, Soundclud and more . He wants to create music that positively changes lives and heals pain. Overall, Ron want his music to be loved while spreading love through his music . He also wants to share his story that despite how or where you grow up you can follow your dreams , and he wants to leave a positive impact on all who hears him.
Last week Chris Voice , Anthony, Royce P and Markus Lee , posted a picture of them together with the caption [Guess Who ? HP Sweethearts] . The picture of them standing on the steps together heightened the suspense of their fans that the group was back in effect. The photo even made me wonder was this just the guys hanging out or is this really official ? So of course I had to reach out to them to find out what's going on , because the internet is buzzing about the reunion. I've been following Hamilton Park's career for a while now and these guys have released some very hot, seductive, and gratifying music. Their "Hamilton Park" album debut in 2011 under Andre Harrell's label at Atlantic Records. The project featured singles such as "Computer Love" and "Thing Called Us".
Hamilton Park exudes pure talent , power, and undeniable favor that captivates their listeners and allures you right into their charming and blessed world. I've been wanting to interview Hamilton Park forever and I finally had the opportunity to do an exclusive interview with them for The Mogul Minute. It was a pleasure to have all four of them on the line "live" . Their personalities definitely shined through and I had an amazing time talking to them . Without further ado all the way from Atlanta here is Hamilton Park.

Cowboy Beebop : I've been in love with music since the womb. My mom and pop actually met at a rap contest at the community center at 27th and Daulphin.My mom won the competition and my pop won her.So I feel like I never got a chance to fall in love with music .It just was always there, like a apart of me.
2.) The Mogul Girl : Who or what inspires you ?
Cowboy Beebop : I'm a very aesthetic person. I see the beauty in all forms of art. Rather it be visually or sonically. I go to art museums, plays, concerts, dance offs etc.., I draw inspiration from all these different outlets. That's why all my projects are conceptual. Cause I draw from these things then re-interpret them through my music. Far as a person Kid Cudi . He's the complete artist.
3.) The Mogul Girl : Favorite lyrics from a song of yours ?
Cowboy Beebop : "Get Free". A song from my mixtape called "Saturday." I say "Mama tell me face-time/but I never take time/I be on a straight grind/Girl I gotta make mine/She don't never judge me cause she love me like I'm Fazon/She just scared to lose me to the system like Trayvon" . I was basically saying that I been working so hard that I barely have the time to deal with anyone on a social level, not even my mother.

Cowboy Beebop : I feel like I'm the bridge between the gangsters and the hipsters at least at a local level. I am the beautiful contradiction. The hood N**** who can crowd surf at Powerhouse or SXSW. The artist who's on the same wave as the Uzi's and Thuggas but can rap like the Nas and Jay-Z and get respected by the J-Prince's and Shug Knight's.
6.) The Mogul Girl : If you could work on a song with any artist who would it be and why ?

9) The Mogul Girl : What does Philly mean to you ?
Cowboy Beebop : It's home. I have a love/hate relationship with the city.I've been to a lot of different cities and nobody has their own swag like Philly male or female. Everywhere we go we standout. But on the negative : The city is to hard (lol) . We don't gotta be ganster all the time. We gotta learn to embrace the fact that we're all different . Some n***** are street dudes , some dudes are hipsters . It's too cliquey.
10.) The Mogul Girl : Tell me what you want listeners to gain from your music ?
Cowboy Beebop : An understanding of me. My lyrics are so personal. Which I do intentionally. I want people to feel like they know me. I want my fans to be my friends , that way I'll be good no matter where I go in the world.Also if I can give some kind of insight on doing what you want with your life and not what people think you should, then I'm happy with that.
11.)The Mogul Girl : What was your dream growing up ?
Cowboy Beebop : My dream was and still is to be remembered. I'm scared to die as a nobody and have death and time destroy my legacy.

A Benjamin Franklin once said "Energy and persistence conquer all things". It's very rare that you come across someone whose energy is so magnetizing and sharp. Kev Young of Southbridge,Ma is very confident, committed, excited, spirited, and vibrant. After watching HIS "All Night" video , purchasing the single, and of course featuring him on The Mogul Minute I had to interview him. His voice and image is charming, dominant, and refreshing. His vibe is just so elevating , pure, and genuine. I'm so happy that he is the first "The Mogul Minute" interview of 2016. Oh yes this is how you kick off 5 years of The Mogul Minute the right way. So let's get into this interview with the spectacular Kev Young right now.
1.) The Mogul Girl : What's your favorite food ?
Kev Young : My favorite food would have to be pasta. Pasta is definitely my favorite but not just any kind. Chicken Parm and stuff like that but if the sauce isn't right it isn't happening. The sauce has to be A1. The sauce is everything!
2.) The Mogul Girl : So what does music mean to you?
Kev Young : Music to me is ......and I don't want to sound cliche but music to me is life. Music to me is a way to express myself and I''m not trying to put a downfall on my career but let's just say I wasn't going to make it , I would still make music. Music is something I personally use to release certain emotions....every emotion to be honest. Happiness, sadness, being mad, anything. Music to me is a way to keep me sane I guess. Yeah, it's going to stick with me. I catch myself singing without even trying to.When I'm cleaning my room or just doing simple things. It's just literally something that's instilled in my life. Its just going to be there forever.
2.)The Mogul : Now your single "All Night" is super sexy and the video is too? What was it like recording the song and shooting the video?
Kev Young : I definitely love the song. It was dope recording it and putting it together. I was already excited for it once everything was done. Now the video (Ahhh man) it was fun . If I could put it into any words it would have to be fun.
3.)The Mogul Girl : So tell me about your upcoming project?
Kev Young : I'm still debating on what I'm putting together. I've been putting out singles with my team and they're doing well. I'm debating on what I'm going to do either an EP or an album. I might just keep dropping singles but for my upcoming projects I have a few features , a few shows, and new videos .You know, basically just networking and promoting and trying to build a name for myself. So when the labels do come my portfolio will be situated . So my upcoming projects are basically just adding new songs, videos, and features. Not to many features because I'm trying to focus on myself but the ones I will have will be prime to my upcoming success. I just have to keep the faith. I'm not cocky but I'm confident. I believe in myself we're doing for each other we have a very solid foundation and 'm just trying to get there. A lot of people don't understand you can't do this by yourself. You need a team no matter what. Every person is just as important as the artist. I feel like a lot of people forget that.Everything is important when it comes to the team. Everyone is important when it comes to yourself.
4.) The Mogul Girl : Now what are some of your favorite things to do when you are not recording?
Kev Young : I play a lot of sports. I know I might seem skinny as hell but I eat a lot. So I'm always eating . Now that it's winter time I'm into snowboarding I'm an active person . I'm into snowboarding heavy. I like going to the mountains. I'm into basketball. If I'm not in the studio I'm either writing or listening to beats or doing something to keep me entertained but yeah I'm def into food. I don't know where it all goes but I love eating.
5.)The Mogul Girl : I'm from Philly and I saw that one of your inspirations are Boyz II Men. If you could've been on any Boyz II Men song which would it be and why?
Kev Young :Wow! That's a good question. Damn there's so many songs from them that I would love to be apart of . That's a hard one. If I could be apart of any song I think it would've been "Song For Mama" of "Water Runs Dry" .
"Song For Mama" because I'm a mama's boy to the max. I grew up with just my mom. That's my world. My heart. That's the first person that's going to benefit from this whole thing if it goes well. She gave me life. "Water Runs Dry" because that's just a dope song. It's emotional. That song is levels . It touches so many levels of emotions. I'm probably going to end up listening to another Boyz II Men song like damn I should've said that one.
6.)The Mogul Girl : What are some of the things that you value in life?
Kev Young : The first thing I would say is definitely my daughter. I value her so much she taught me so much just the whole way she came about. Everything about her has been a lesson to my life, I just love her so much. I value my music. Music is very important to me. I value morals. Just having good morals.I learned in life you can't be cool with everybody. That doesn't mean you have to be a jerk for a lack of better words. I value respect a lot. You have to give respect to earn respect. I just value every little thing that I have earned or gotten to this day. I value this interview. I'm just an appreciative person. I know that things don't come easy and things don't have to happen . Nobody told you to hit me up so the fact that this interview is happening .Just everything in general I appreciate it. I value God.God has a big role in my life.I grew up in a religious scene. Even though I make secular music to be technical I still value my relationship with God. That's something I'll forever keep close to my heart. I grew up in a religious home. My mother is still very religious. She goes to prisons to preach and she's constantly praying for me. she's up everyday at 5 AM because she has a dream that I would get stabbed when I was 17 . She wakes up at 5 A.M still until this day tomorrow she's going to be up praying for me.I love that woman she's a soldier. I feel like a lot of my blessings are because of her prayers. A lot of things have been avoided. I've been in bad places and literally leave the place 5-10 minutes later and something crazy would happen. A brawl, somebody shot,something crazy , and I literally just left and its happened a handful of times . So its like I feel I got something protecting me. So it definitely has to be the prayers of my mom.
7.) The Mogul Girl : Now the ladies are going to love you, your music, and image. What do you love about the ladies?
Kev Young : I'm hoping . I'm not a bad guy. I love women's honesty. I feel women are a lot like children they ain't going to tell you they like something just to tell you they like it. They're straight up. They'll say "It was cool, it was alright". I just like that women are honest. I feel that a women would be quicker to tell me "Kev that was alright you can go harder then a guy would". They're upfront. They know what they want and they know how to get it.
8.) The Mogul Girl : Now if you could be any animal for the day. Which would you be and why?
Kev Young : Ohhhhl! That's a good question. There's so many . I would want to be a lion off rip just because that's the king of the jungle. That's the man el captain. My favorite animal always been a tiger. See you got me thinking crazy like animal planet. I like eagles as well. They're high in the sky, flying over everything, and they have 20/20 vision they're not missing a thing. If I had to choose one it would be definitely be a lion just to to be the real king of the jungle out here.Lions are just so dominant. When you see them, they just demand your respect.
9.)The Mogul Girl : I love all types of movies. What's your favorite movie
Kev Young : I have a lot but it would have to be "All About The Benjamins". I have a lot but yeah that's my all time favorite. I could watch it 20 times and still laugh just as hard.
10.) The Mogul Girl : What's your favorite line?
Kev Young : Oh my god! There's so many. You know when he's like "You know what? I'm a start goin' D'Wights 'cause you don't laugh at my jokes or nothin' . D'Wight who? D'Wight around yo lip. You know that other line when he's like "You'll never find,blum, blum, blu , blum a hairline like mine". ( Laughing )
11.) The Mogul Girl : So what do you want The Mogul Minute and the world to know about Kev Young?
Kev Young : That I'm coming with fire music, but I'm coming humble. I'm not coming in this game trying to be better than anyone else cause that's not what I make music for. I'm very humble and I just want to make a name for myself. I will make a name for myself. So to everyone my name is Kevin Gonzalez "Kev Young" I'm a singer from Southbridge,Ma and I'm coming. You will hear my music and you will see me on BET one day very soon. Just know that I appreciate the love I get and I appreciate my team.My team consist of 3 0r 4 people. Shoutout to my Agresivo Records team . I do want to mention them. Shoutout to my boy Cam Yadier . I started with Cam when I started doing Spanish music . I do have to pay some respects to my boy Cam because they played a huge role in everything. They're still playing a huge role in everything that I do as well. Cam is a very good producer. He's always in Boston but he's from where I'm from.Also shoutout to "Sure Fire Music" that got me sounding amazing. These are my people. Teamwork makes the dream work. I'm in the studio right now but I cut the session just to do the interview. It's just flattering even to have an article written up on me . This is all cool and happening so fast and I appreciate you too. Thank you
I appreciate Kev Young for being such an awesome interview and just being an amazing artist.

THE MOGUL MINUTE : WHEN YOU START UP YOU CAN IMPACT THE WORLD ( INTERVIEW WITH SEQUOIA BLODGETT ) BY THE MOGUL GIRL
Air, the element associated with Libra means reaching higher and that's exactly what Sequoia Blodgett is doing. As a beautiful entrepreneur, college graduate, business owner, and Libra Sequoia has her mind set on impacting the world in a great way. With nine years in the entertainment industry as a commercial and music video director she has worked with major artist such as K.Michelle, Jacob Latimore, and Justin Bieber. One thing is for sure she's about her business and she will not be defeated. In March of 2014 Sequoia became ill and was hospitalized . During this time she was confined to her hospital room. The doctors ran numerous test and couldn't put their finger on the problem. As she sat in this hospital room she started to reflect on all of her work and began to wonder if she didn't make it through would that be her only contribution to the world. That's when Sequoia realized she had to get better, go harder and do it bigger. So she began brainstorming about starting her own business. She's always had an interest in self help and personal development and wanted to pursue that field. After her miraculous recovery Sequoia began teaching photography as the basics for branding at an all girls entrepreneurship camp across the street from Stanford University. The parents of the students were venture capitalists and CEOs of major businesses. One of the instructors mentioned Draper University and Sequoia was thrilled about the university. She applied and was accepted to the university. In the process she was given a partial scholarship . After completing the program at Draper University , Sequoia earned a investment from billionaire and third generation venture capitalist Tim Draper whom also matched her with another investor. With all the interesting things that were happening at Draper University in Silicon Valley, Sequoia thought that they should have a reality show. Words have power because that's exactly what happened. ABC Network picked up their show and began filming 10 students in a seven week program who pitch their ideas "Shark Tank" style. The show titled "Startup U" premiered
August 18, 2015. The finale airs on Thursday October 15, 2015 on ABC at 5 P.M.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Sequoia and lets just say I felt so motivated and inspired speaking with her. I hope you will feel the same. It's evident that when you start focusing on your dreams and goals you can do great things.
So let's get into the interview below.
1.) The Mogul Girl : You taught photography in 2014 if you could capture your life in a photo, what would it include?
Sequoia : Wow! Wow! If I cold capture my life in a photo? ( thinks) Probably a big black hole. I don't know what the next destination, milestone, or journey is. I'm kind of just going through it. I think that would be the best way to explain it. I'm blindly going into the midst and whatever happens... happens.
2.) The Mogul Girl : What advice would you have for people whom have a health condition but want to pursue their dreams and business?
Sequoia: Depending on what the health condition is. I would say if it's not debilitating and you can functionally move go out and do it. Regardless of your expectation, regardless of your fears, regardless of your opinions because you're going to get a lot of those. Just get out and do it. What I feel is really interesting about Silicoln Valley is that you are taught that "Failure is good". You can have a meeting with a VP and they'll say "Oh you failed that means you're seasoned". Where as anywhere else you feel bad, you don't want to talk to anyone. You just get a different perspective. If you do have a health ailment just go out and try it. If it doesn't work do as we say in Silicoln Valley " Pivot and try something else". We are all put on this earth for a short amount of time so if you have the ability to do something go out and do it.
3.) The Mogul Girl : The number seven in numerology means spiritual, focused, intelligent, intuitive, and wisdom. So why did you name your company "7 AM" ?
Sequoia: So what's interesting is at first it wasn't called "7 AM" . It was "Love Uncut". It was set out to be all relationship based with a little personal development. I spoke to the former CEO of match.com and saw a bigger opportunity for the e-learning course. This next point is interesting. Research the name of your business and the trademark. I thoroughly researched "Love Uncut" . I searched under rocks to make sure the name wasn't taken. After every aspect of the name was set including the domain etc I went to trademark it. It was at this point I found out a woman in D.C was using that name. She doesn't have to trademark it because she has seniority over the mark. So whenever she registered it it's hers. So then it becomes a situation because Love Uncut had become this huge business like Facebook. I was so married to that name. I had to just brainstorm to come up with another one. That's when I decided to name the company "7 AM " is short and catchy and to top it off its the beginning of a new day, Our company represents a new beginning. Maybe things didn't go right the day before, the week before, the month or their life before. We are here to help you start a new journey and start over. So that's what 7 AM symbolizes. P.S. I sent my life coach three other names and we went with this (laughs) .
Sequoia is super fantastic, inspiring, and it was a joy to interview her. I wish her tons of success and that she wins in all she does. Thank you La Tasha (@Tash1216) for this wondrous connection.

On February 23, 2015 I attended a private screening for the comedic, drama, crime film "FOCUS". The movie stars Will Smith as "Nicky" and Margot Robbie as "Jess" . FOCUS will teach you to pay attention to everything you learn, watch who you trust, to be aware of your surroundings and remember to be quick but also remember to take your time. Its a fast paced world and you have to be good and think on your toes. Will Smith and his co-star Margot are fiery and sexy together and their relationship will keep you guessing. I really enjoyed this film and I definitely will go see it again. If you are into taking risks and challenging games, this is the movie for you.

The vehicles at The Philly Auto Show are exhilarating, extraordinary, powerful, and seductively desirable. Today on January 30,2015 I got an exclusive behind the scenes look at the exotic, pre-production, classic, concept, and product cars on Media Day. There are 49 manufacturers with 700 cars displayed over the 700,000 square foot Convention Center. There is definitely a vehicle that will excite the car lover in you.
Walking into the auto show exhibit the NIssan GTR immediately caught my eye.
I interviewed Steven Oldham the Nissan North America PR Manager about the Nissan GTR.
The Mogul Girl: So tell me about the Nissan GTR?
Steven Oldham: So this is as we call it our super car. It has 545 horse power and its unbelievably fast. We call it sort of a halo car. We don’t sell many of these but its been around the Nissan line up for a number of years. It has a very huge following in the United States and Japan. Its for that single person that wants a car that is fun to drive. Its starts at a little over 100,000. Its definitely a fun style car. The car is so powerful it is nicknamed Godzilla.
The Mogul Girl : What’s your favorite thing about this vehicle?
Steven Oldham: The power. You floor this thing. You actually get sucked into the seat, thats how powerful it is.
I ventured over to the Jaguar display and checked out the Jaguar F-Type. After getting inside the very luxurious vehicle I interviewed Jaguar Representative Loraine.
The F-Type is definitely a great two seater sports car. I definitely loved the style and features of the F-Type.
The Bentley, Ashton Martin, Rolls Royce Ghost, Lamborghini Huracan, and
LP 700-4 are very exotic, exclusive and brilliant vehicles. The colors are super appealing. You can’t help but gravitate to these beauties. You will definitely fall for them. I absolutely love the LP 700-4.
Jeep Camp was so much fun. I sat in the passenger seat of the Jeep Rubicon 2015 as the professional 4X4 driver TJ gave me the full experience of The Jeep Test Track adventure zone. The Rubicon is very spacious. This was definitely a interesting interactive part of the auto show.
The Ford display was superb. Ford Representative James Tobin gave me the best tour of the latest Ford models. He was a great interview and such a kind person. Make sure you stop by the Ford display and see all the great vehicles. The 2015 Ford F-150 is truly Ford Tough.
The Mercedes Benz and Lexus display is incredible. The vibrant colors and beautiful interior is beyond fantastic. One of their classy models are guaranteed to draw you in. These vehicles are truly great.
Don't forget to visit the State Farm Booth and play the interactive driving game which is a blast!!

The P.A. Conference for Women was absolutely splendid. You could feel the love , power, and strength through out the Philadelphia Convention Center. The smiles, the warm embraces, the speeches, and the open hearts that shared stories and cherished moments with thousands of people paved the way for a powerful day here in the city of sisterly love. There were 100+ speakers . The keynote speakers were Tamala Edwards, Mrs.Jane Pauley, Jill Abramson, Candy Chang, Monica Malpass, Linda Cliatt-Wayman, Diane Keaton, Tory Johnson, and Robin Roberts. Guest speakers including Stephanie Humphrey "TechLife Steph" , Ms.Loraine Ballard Morrill, Emma Johnson, Susan Tabor- Kleiman, Tina Wells, Beth Rubino, Andrea Ramsey, and Lauren Mailian Bias. The day consisted of various sessions that uplifted, moved, and informed the women and girls on ways to change their financial situation, being brave, using their time wisely, how to market oneself, live a healthy lifestyle, maintain and pursue education/ career, informative ways on how to use technology and social networks, style in the work place, and how important your story and life is. In Diane Keaton's speech she said "you gotta have balls" , the room was full of laughter after that quote and by that she means you have to be super tough to make it in the world . Tory Johnson interviewed Robin Roberts. At the the end of the interview Tory Johnson had everyone stand up as she recorded a video of Robin Roberts and all the women in the convention center in Hall B screaming "Everybody's Got Something" which is the title of Robin Robert's book. The speeches were beyond touching and educating. There were also tons of exhibitors at the conference including Dress For Success, Partyhasher,Whole Foods Market, Polish The Nest, QVC, Cradles To Crayons, Rizzieri Salon/Spa , Mary Kay, Pearls With Purpose, Mainline Models, and numerous others.
