We had the good fortune of connecting with MR.1204 and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi MR.1204, what is the most important factor behind your success?
The most important factor behind my success and my brand is consistency. I believe if you find a formula that works for you and stay consistent with marketing and promotion then you can’t loose! Eventually everything will come full circle.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’m a hip hop artist as well as own the label I’m on which is Phat Boi Records. I also own and operate 1204 Promotions which is a management and promotional company which represents models and actresses. I believe what sets me apart from other artist is the fact that I embrace the business side just as much as the creative side. I always wanted to perform and be an artist I found out early on I had a knack for writing and once I found hip hop I never looked back! The hip hop industry is so over saturated that independent artist often gets over looked. I simply try to incorporate myself in everything that’s entertainment, from music to movies, to fashion, etc I try to do it all. The most important lesson I learned in business and entertainment is always make sure your asset. I can honestly say my story has never been easy, it’s always something or someone who is standing in your way I overcame all obstacles by never giving up and always believing in myself and what I’m creating. I want the world to know that I have a lot to offer in music as well as the other business ventures that I’m in. Oh your definitely gonna know MR.1204!
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I recently visited Phoenix,Arizona it was my first time there! I was in town for exactly a week! I can honestly say it’s one of the most beautiful places I have been! I would take my homeboys to eat at Fogo De Chão Brazilian Steak House! The food is just amazing and your definitely gonna get your money’s worth! We gotta hit the Scottsdale Mall and jump extra fly! They have all the latest fashion and the sites are just off the charts! As far as nightlife hey pick a spot hell any spot! From upscale to bar life or just hanging out downtown is just something different! The mountains were my favorite, to just look all around and see mountains everywhere is just different! The Gentlemens clubs have the most beautiful women, the music is great and the hip hop scene is new and exciting! Everything about Phoenix is Lit!
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to shoutout my client and business partner Kendra Kouture. She’s the true definition of loyal and dedication. Without her staying all the way down for me, I wouldn’t and couldn’t do what I do on a high level.
