He ventured into his own business, The Lucky Johnson Production and Studio. It provides acting classes, theatre, community center, several activities for the youth and homeless. Lucky also also individuals to volunteer at his studio in exchange of acting classes. This drives the youth and people inspired, to work with him even more. Being an entertainer most of his life gave him the idea to share with others who want to work in film. There is opportunity and motivation shared throughout his city with the work he commits to.
As an entrepreneur, Lucky Johnson inspires others to keep consistent and stay positive throughout their journey and success in film:
“Stay true to yourself, go to acting class, be authentic, and work in your purpose.”
Creating a platform for artists to express themselves the right way has been our main objective. Houston’s Finest Unplugged TV viewed how unity within businesses can bring a great deal of people together. Since we began this blog site, we wanted to show what matters the most in our society. We created a team featuring DJ Mizzle, Don P, Sherita, and Nyte Lyfe Lexx. Once connecting dots with Music Exchange Radio and Vision4Productions, we wanted to share our insights on some very interesting hip hop artists.
Music Exchange Radio is an innovative media network which uses the combination of 24 hour live streaming, radio, television, website, and smart phone app. They market and promote independent music of all genres, culturally influence entrepreneurs, music and business education, all in relevance to independent artist.
We teamed up with some great entities to curate the show where people can be apart of. There were interviews in place for a few artists we felt need awareness bought to their dopeness.
It was only right to bring out artists such as Bam Rogers, BG Kenny Lou, FNM $hoota, and JR The Lyrical Angel.
We spoke with Arkansas Hip-Hop Artist Bam Rogers who truly is an artist. Bam states how he has been influenced by Music all of his life. He began at the age of 12. His family has a strong presence with Gospel music. This reflects on how talented Bam is and we are excited to see his future.
We talked about his album which dropped on his birthday November 14th called “Change of Plans”. His upcoming event is held at Astroworld Festival, November 17th. Be sure to check out his new album and our album review on “Change of Plans”.
Next we had a chance to chat with BG Kenny Lou, who is an aspiring artist out of Southpark Houston. This fella has a very interesting story and we commend him for sharing it with us. Kenny has been doing major performances with several high schools during their football games and homecoming activities. With his dope music and strong presence with the kids, The students highly anticipates his show and his words of encouragements. Kenny Lou is indeed what you will call a hardcore rapper, but in his music his melodies becomes anyone’s favorite.
Well not everyone enjoyed his work at the schools. For sure it doesn’t seem pretty having the Houston police displaying the artist on the news. The Houston Police are complaining about how are the schools can allow this artist to perform. In our opinion, how could any school let any rapper perform? Kenny Lou defends himself by telling his side of the story. The media played manipulation in this matter. Kenny shares how he does positive acts for his sake and not for any publicity stunt. He even volunteered with us at The Senior Luncheon at the church and fed the homeless afterwards. We planned prior to the accusations to have artist participate in our volunteer programs.
Besides that, we got a chance to hear his major single “Damn Thang” which is doing crazy numbers at this time. We hope and pray all goes well moving forward to his success in his career.
What’s Family and Money if you don’t see FNM $hoota. Westbank New Orleans artist has migrated to Houston and become an all around guy. You may see him in Atlanta one day, next in L.A. $hoota came chat with us about his future projects and next moves. His humbleness spreads in the room everywhere he go. We went to his video shoot for “Playing Games” a week ago. This tack is on his EP titled “All Hype Shit”. $hoota touches on how being able to move around helped him connect more than ever. He is definitely an underdog in the industry. His clothing line FNM Apparel is another example of his great work ethnics and sense of style.
We consider him a true artist who stands behind his brand. It’s never a doubt you will catch this artist with his children. It is never a time you catch not on point. He is the true definition of Family and Money.
Last but far from least, Westbank New Orleans singer and rapper JR The Lyrical Angel blesses us with his presence during the show. With his strong yet angelic voice, we placed him spot to give us a taste of his sound. JR is an aspiring artist moving forward to become the next big sensation. His ability to sing and spit major bars keeps everyone astonished. We ask him how his life has been affected music. He had a tough Road to where he is today. He is truly a living testimony. He allowed the audience to hear his upcoming track “Crossroads”. One of our favorite projects he produced. JR is currently working on a project and we look forward to hearing more from him.
Overall the show became a success! We united artists and entities they may have never met before. We had several we would like to thank for being apart of our project:
Rudy Alexander (Takeover Studios/ A&R with Rap-A-Lot)
