Kevin Boyce 22, of Philadelphia is the perfect guy to kick off the Mr.X section of The Mogul Minute for 2015. I met Kevin at T-Mobile and indeed he is absolutely one of the best salesmen I have ever met. He is so personable, informed,and and has a great smile. In fact I made multiple phone purchases from him. T-Mobile should definitely send him a reward A.S.A.P! Kevin cherishes his Italian and Irish roots . When Kevin isn't working at T-Mobile he is focusing on his music career as a rap artist and starting his own record label. Kevin definitely deserves a spot as Mr.X for being an X-excellent salesmen, X- extra special personality, and X-extra dedicated to all that he does. So check out his interview with The Mogul Minute below. Congratulations Kevin on being the first "The Mogul Minute Mr.X" of 2015.
1.) The Mogul Girl : What are some things that inspire you? Kevin : I have always been inspired by my mom. She taught me so much. She always maintained strong through hard family times. My mom was always a go getter and worked to support the family. Growing up with just one parent she always held it down and made sure we had everything we needed from a young age until now. She definitely pushes me to be the best I can be in everything I do and not take any short cuts. She is the definition of dedication and that’s why I named my music label after her (DEDICATION). Everything I do is for my mom because she always made sure we were first and she was last but this time around now that I’m grown it is all about her.
2.) The Mogul Girl : Growing up what was your favorite show to watch?
Kevin : Growing up I was a huge Sports-Center fan. Each morning I’d wake up, it would be the first thing on. I mean it would be on before church, school, and before I went to work. It was so bad I felt like if I didn’t watch my sports center updates I wouldn’t be able to go out and enjoy my day. I always had to know what teams won the previous night and what players had great games. I’m just a sports junkie . I like all sports but I prefer basketball.
3.)The Mogul Girl : So you're a T-Mobile representative. What have you learned from being apart of the T-Mobile team ?
Kevin: T-Mobile has helped me in many different ways. First, I would have to say it taught me to be responsible and develop personal relationships. T-Mobile has taught me how to consider myself my own business and promote myself.
4.)The Mogul Girl: Do you have a favorite phone?
Kevin: I stick with the iPhone because I’m used to it. Ive used Android and iPhone but once I got used to Facetime and iMessage I never wanted to leave team iPhone.
5.) The Mogul Girl: You're also interested in music. Tell me a little about that?
Kevin : I’ve always had a high interest in music. Ive been rapping since 12 years old with kids around the block. I always just enjoyed doing it for fun. I never really thought about taking it serious. My friends always told me to pursue music as a career especially if its what I love to do. I recently just started recording new singles . Growing up in Philly I always idolized Cassidy for his freestyle raps and world wide rap battling. I guess you can say he motivated me to make music. I am a fan of what rap used to be, hard punch lines, metaphors, and back to back bars.
6.)The Mogul Girl : Do you have a all time favorite song?
Kevin : There's too much good music out there to choose just one song, but I would say my favorite artist is Philly's own
7.) The Mogul Girl : Where can people hear your music?

8.) The Mogul Girl : Describe your fashion style?
Kevin : In the past most would say I dressed very unique. I used to wear flashy/colorful clothing. As I got older I decided to tone it down and stick with dark colors, mostly black. I just feel like the colors were a lot and it was time for a change based on my maturity and age. Keep in mind though I always matched even when I was wearing crazy colored clothes. I was always complemented regardless of what I was wearing because I always pulled the look off.
9)The Mogul Girl : Is there anything special you want The Mogul Minute readers to know about you?
Kevin : I want them to know that in my spare time / free time I like to write raps/make or record music. When I am not doing those things I enjoy spending time with my family and friends catching up and going out to eat. Yes, I love my food! I am a huge fan of sports games mainly NBA 2k15. I have a huge love for watches. There was a time I had about 50 different watches. I love fashion and have a crazy love for sneakers especially Nike Dunks or better known as Jordan 1s. Last but not least I have a huge love for cars and currently I am whipping around a 2015 Chevy Camaro.
10.) The Mogul Girl : You're into cars.What's your all time favorite?
Kevin : My all time favorite car would have to be the Rolls Royce. I am a huge luxury car type of guy. Even though I now have the American Muscle I like the luxury better. I had a Cadillac before with all the bells and whistles and all the extras. Nothing was like that car. I just love the size of the Rolls Royce and that expensive look it has. That’s my dream car and I would love to one day say I have a rolls royce. When that car pulls up I just think of a business man or a hard worker and that is what I represent and what I am all about.Yea it would be the Rolls Royce!
11.) The Mogul Girl : At the end of the day. What's one word that describes you completely?
Kevin : The one word that describes me completely would have to be DEDICATED. I choose dedicated because everything I do I commit 100% to that thing. Whether it is who can rap the best or who puts the most time into their raps or even to something like who cleans the bathroom toilet the best or the most, I am dedicated to everything I do. I am dedicated to my job and give it my all every shift and try my hardest everyday I clock in. I am dedicated to my raps and take my time writing them and practicing my lyrics. I am dedicated to my home and family maintaining a safe and clean atmosphere for my family to live in. I dedicate myself to every task in life and just want to make sure I give my all in everything I do. I don’t want to ever look back and say I wish I could have done better or tried harder. I leave a very small amount of room for failure and excuses. I am very hard on myself and push hard for all of the things I want in this life , ii’s my job to work hard and get it. I believe anything you want you can get if you put your mind to it and work for it.Don’t ever let someone tell you that your dreams are stupid and you can never be somebody. Go out and prove them wrong. I am a dream chaser and support anyone who believes in their dream.
