[Interview] Moka Only talks Swollen Members relationship, new album title, and quitting your 9-to-5

We called Moka Only live on The Come Up Show Radio as he is on the Mammal Revolution Tour all across Canada. Last night he was in Guelph for his tour and he also was going to perform with the Swollen Members as they were in town. This naturally led to the conversation about his current relationship with the Swollen Members, being that it's my first time going to see Moka live in concert I asked him what to expect at a Moka Only show. He stressed the importance of crowd participation and making the audience feel like they are part of the show. My favourite part of the interview is when I asked Moka what advice would he give to artists and everyone who is scared to quit their 9-to-5 and pursue their passion, he gave me the most insightful and meaningful answer that you just have to listen to it in the interview. I want you to share your stories if you are thinking of pursuing your dreams and quitting your job and what you think of Moka's advice. Make sure to also check out our previous interview with Moka Only and subscribe to The Come Up Show TV.

[Interview] Haviah Mighty live Performance on The Come Up Show Radio

The EP is a story, a bad relationship, it's starts off by being alone and I've accepted it, I meet someone stuffs happens and it ends up badly. That is the concept of the record. Haviah Mighty.
I will never forget the feelings I felt after our interview with Haviah Mighty. To quote a listener "I was supposed to be in my car for 5 minutes but I ended staying inside my car for 45 minutes, she blew my mind!" Haviah Mighty has always found an effective way to emit emotion through words and poetry, as a child Haviah Mighty began vocal training at the age of 4, she sang for seven years it was when she was 12 that Haviah began combining her love for music and her love for language. Inspired by 50 Cent's Get Rich Or Die Tryin' she released her debut mixtape No Studio in 2010, #Eighteen in 2011, and her latest tape Bars, Girls, & Bars in 2012, which you can all download on her website. Performing her brand new records for the first time ever on radio we are proud to present Haviah Mighty on The Come Up Show. Check it out and let me know what you think of her!

[Interview] TFHOUSE talks Young Desperado, art of Sacrifice, being aggressive in his music and more

The homie TFHOUSE visited us on The Come Up Show Radio a few weeks ago and wow what an amazing interview and time we had. We started off by talking about what TFHOUSE was up to in 2012, he shared with us his best memories from opening for Mac Miller and Wiz Khalifa and how it improved his live performance. We continued to playing Play Your Part and TFHOUSE talked about his upcoming third project Young Desperado and how it's a collection of music rather than classfying it as a mixtape or album. He further explained Young Desperado is kind of being desperate for just about everything you really desire whether its love or money, that extreme point of desperation where you are willing to do anything to obtain those feelings. From there the conversation naturally progressed to sacrificing, letting go of something and wondering if you made the right or not.
When you hear it...put it this way, the ignorance on it, is really aggressive, I say some really outlandish things but when I'm being vulnerable, its also really aggressive, I'm literally letting it all out. When I sound depressed on it, its very aggressive at the same time, when I mean the aggression is there, it means every element of my emotions I'm trying to get out is a lot more aggressive, I really mean it and its coming from a honest place.
TFHOUSE discussed so many things with us in this interview that I can't possibly all type it out since its a 15 minute video interview, you will definitely learn a lot about him as a music fan and artists take note and check it out in full below!
