1. What part of the nation are you from?
Atlanta Ga aka Atlantis also heard it refered to as Shaykamaxum or the New Mecca.
2. What is A Bey Management?
A Bey Management is My Management and Development Company. I do Management and the Overall Development of the Artist from a Holistic or “Moorish Science” aspect. You should be Obeying A Bey when trying to manage your life.
3. How is artist management different in 2014 than in previous eras?
Man Ive learned that Management is always gonna be what it is and thats simply acting as a third party Verifier when it comes to Agreements and Contracts. Negotiating the terms and then retaining a Commision fee. I wanted to add More of Developing and consulting the Individual rather than the artist. So i do way more than what’s required of just a Manager. I develop your Mind, Body and Soul which makes u a Better person not just a Better Artist.
4. Why did you feel it necessary to proclaim your nationality in the Moorish Science Temple of America?
It is Neccessary to Proclaim your Nationality simply put to be “Right” and Counted in the Family Of Nations. I have read and Studied Prophet Noble Drew Ali his actions, not just his words! I even named my Youngest Son Shariyf after the Prophet. So when he brought the Moorish AMerican movement he layed the Foundation, to put us back in right standing in Law and Birthright. It is up to us To continue to build upon that foundation to Uplift this Nation as he instructed and did.
5. Ones don’t realize that economic security is intimately tied to our aims and objectives and you embody that principle, so will you share with us what drives your entrepreneurship?
Moors Must Be Industrious and Get back to being Producers rather than Consumers. If we are Not Producing or Making anything we will soon Perish! It has been my experience that other Nations and Races wouldnt mind Assisting in our Goals and Visions only if you are on your Square as a Moor, meaning not Negro, Black, Colored or acting Like a Ni@#er! I get so many smiles, and nods when i wear my fez out in public, and not just to the temple. They Respect it and know about the History and are waiting for us to Wake Up to get back on our Thrones. Economic power is what we already Posses, we just dont know how to Control it. We as a people have the economic power to save us, But we choose to buy Cars, Clothes, Shoes, weave and makeup. We can cripple this economy overnight if we ALL spent our dollars with those who look like us. So personally i dont wanna hear no more lectures, or debates, if its not about our Economic security and Future Businesses Being established.
6. The Orientalist paintings that we see Moors posting online convey to us a lot of information from their royal demeanor, architecture of their dwellings, fabrics and colors of their garb, style of furniture and flooring, etc. You are one of the young Moors who is bringing that whole aesthetic via hip hop culture to the modern era. Who are some of the designers that you rock with?
