Kiearra Scruggs: Adorable, Talented Cuteness

Kiearra
This is Kiearra Scruggs. She writes, sings, and an avid music lover. Oh and I forgot to mention that she is pretty darn adorable. The 19 year old Farmington Hills (Detroit), Michigan native once broadcasted on the magical social media website called, “YouNow.” She also has a vlog on YouTube Channel where she talks about things she cares about. Kiearra to talked with me about her love of music, her love for the King of Pop Michael Jackson, her future, and other cool facts.  This kind-hearted young lady has an old soul which is quite refreshing.
Read and enjoy!
#1: When did music, singing, and writing become your three loves? Do you have a particular one that you love the most out of the three?
Probably when I was about five years old. I remember when I was in Kindergarten and we had to make a little project showing what we wanted to be when we grow up. For me it was a either doctor or singer. I found this picture of Brandy and slapped it on the paper. When I was little my biggest inspiration in singing was actually Aaliyah. Every time her videos came on I was always out in the living room singing and dancing along. 
 
As for dancing, I learned my first dance when I was actually younger. It was James Brown’s “I Feel Good.” When I learned this, I was no younger than four years old. Oddly, I shall not lie. 
 
I actually wrote my first song, when I was 10 years old. I would always travel with my Papa (grandfather) when I was little and when we stopped at rest-stops I would get these Activity Books. The ones where you make words out of the little picture codes and etc. One of the activities was to write a song for Barbie. Instead of this 10 year old writing a little song about her favorite cartoon or something, I wrote a love song. And like the little talent I was, I showed it to everyone, wishing I still had it though. I have always been on the creative side, I guess because when I was little I would always want to sing about love at the earlier ages. 
 
Singing along with Aaliyah had a toll on me as a little kid. My mom would always look at me like and say “Child?” Even though, through my childhood I wanted to sing, dance and do all types of stuff musically, I think I realized how much it meant to me when I was about 15 years old. A few months before I was starting to feel very uninspired, just by the kind of mainstream music I was raised on. One day I woke up and music just wasn’t touching me anymore. I would say out of the three I love music the most, because without music itself I wouldn’t have been able to have the blessing of the other two.

#2: You have so many nicknames. On the magical social website called “YouNow,” where you broadcasted quite a bit, one of your nicknames is “Little Oprah.” How did that nickname came about? 
The nickname, “Little Oprah” came along by, Eddie (my Ellen) actually. I was just kidding around because, I was ecstatic to have over 100,000 coins from going on before Tre Melvin once and I started giving away coins like crazy. Like I was a Younow Millionaire. I kept implying that I was the Oprah of Younow and Eddie heard it and he started saying it and somehow Timothy started addressing me by it.
#3: Michael Jackson is one of your biggest musical influences ever. When did your infatuation with this iconic artist began? What it is about MJ that makes you draw to his music and connect with it? 
Michael Jackson became, someone I adored and became so inspired by was probably two weeks after June 25, 2009 the day he passed. Not, because I felt sorry, about dodging good music for almost 15 years of my life, but because he helped me restored something in my heart that I was actually starting to not love anymore, which was music. I remember music just started getting meaningless and all the music I listened to was on BET. Yeah I got into James Brown but that was “I Feel Good,”” It’s a Man “World,” “Black and I’m Proud” and that’s all. When I was growing up I wanted to sing, but never really had inspiration anymore after Aaliyah passed, because she wasn’t something really playing on the radio anymore or her videos weren’t really on T.V. When I first saw and listened to Thriller, I realized there were things I needed to change in my life which a few months later it caused me to want to get into Stevie Wonder and other artists in music, that would inspire me so. He inspired me so much as an artist because he taught me to finally open my eyes and just realize some things. He helped me finally set standards for myself which I think every artist needs to do.
#4: You have a Vlog Channel on YouTube with about 200 plus followers. Can you share what your Vlog is all about? How is it different than the other channels that are out there? 
My Vlog on Youtube used to be about my music, I’m one inspired artist, but I’m one critical person to myself as well. I’ll would put one video up and then I’m like: “What the Hell was I thinking?” Which causes me to take videos down. As for now my Youtube channel its about just making videos to help someone smile. Which I want to do with my music one day once I get a better camera and reorganize myself music I will be back on there as well.
#5: Share five facts about you that your fans may be surprised to know.
 
One. I almost fell out of love with music before. 
Two. I can actually dance seems a little impossible since, I act too shy at times, but I even danced in my 5th grade talent show, because music just gave me that much joy and dancing was my escape from everything. 
Three. I love to bake; I love to make everything from homemade. 
Four. I love to sing, but I get nervous a lot when I plan to do it. Like I’ll get all excited to sing and then when it’s time to sing I’m not putting in my all at times, like on Younow, I sing Alto rather than Soprano which is in my range. 
Five. I’m actually very close to my parents than like doing normal teenage stuff. I rather be around them. There’s a reason, because I was sick a lot as a child, so that’s who I was around more of, just stating so no one will think I’m all crazy.
#6: Who are some of your other musical influences besides MJ? 
 
Mariah Carey is one of my influences and though I don’t listen to Aaliyah and James Brown as much anymore, without them I probably wouldn’t still be the same Kiearra.
#7: If you could pick 5 to 10 songs to represent the “Soundtrack of your life” which would they be? Explain why. 
Kirk Franklin- I Smile. This song explains it all.
Marvin Sapp- Never Would Have Made It 
Michael Jackson- Heal the World. Mostly, because, I’m that kind of person who just wants to help everyone as much as I can. 
Mariah Carey- There’s Got to be a Way. 
James Brown- I Feel Good. I say this song, because I’m just a person who’s probably always in that kind of mood.
#8: Random Question: What are some of your favorite TV shows that you are watching right now?
Awkward, Chicago Fire, A Different World, The Cosby Show, Rugrats, Spongebob and the list doesn’t quite end.
#9: Where do you see yourself in your music career 10 years from now? 
 
I see myself, on stage doing concerts and writing music for other artists. Though, sometimes I even say, Kiearra maybe you are aiming to high, but each day when I picture myself actually doing it, I know I’m doing something right.
#10: Are there any upcoming events or projects that you would like to share with the readers or your fans to share about? 
Sadly, no.
I would like to thank Kiearra for allowing me to interview her. I wish her nothing but love, happiness, and success in everything that she does. She is truly a talented individual that one day I hope that her gifts will be shown to the world.
Here are her links to check (and subscribe) to her YouTube Channel and to follow her on Twitter:

Kiara’s World

kika
The picture you are looking at above my words is Kiara Murray. The Grand Rapids, Michigan native graduated with her Bachelors Degree in English Literature & Language from Grand Valley State University in June 2013. Kiara has three passions: writing, speaking and teaching. I should add a fourth passion to her list: reading. I used to love to read when I was kid. I would get tons of books from the library. My reading love has slowed down. But I want to get back to it.
One of Kiara’s poems that she wrote was published in her university’s yearly literary arts magazine. Kiara shares with me about her three passions, inspirations, favorite books, and the Christian sorority she just joined as I took some time to interview her.
Enjoy ^_^.

#1: Your passions are writing, speaking, and teaching. When did you decide in some way that was the path what you wanted to go into?

I think I’ve always known I wanted to be a teacher. When I was younger, I’d always want to play “school” with my cousins. I would make up lessons and give them homework. We would really be in a pretend classroom, with discipline and all! LOL
 
I ended up getting my B.A. in English but decided not to continue with the education degree. Now that I’ve graduated, I think I’m going to go back and get my teaching certificate because I really feel like in a classroom is where I belong!

#2: What inspires you to allow yourself to put your thoughts and words on paper?

I’m the ultimate introvert. I kind of do my own thing. I don’t like small talk and I can definitely explain how I’m feeling when I write it down. I just love to write and read!

#3: Who are some of the most inspirational people in your life that you admire?

I would definitely say my Mom, my grandmother, and my first lady Erica Glenn.

#4: You have a YouTube Channel (KiaraJ007) that has over 1200 subscribers. Can you share what your channel is about? What makes it special than the many other channels that are out there?

You have a YouTube Channel (KiaraJ007) that has over 1200 subscribers. Can you share what your channel is about? Really? It has that many? LOL My channel is basically just about my natural hair journey, I decided to stop putting relaxers in my hair in 2010. I make videos showing how to do different styles, product reviews, and I even vlog about the struggles I’ve had with my hair!

#5: Share five facts about you that people may be surprised to know.

#1: Hmm I’m allergic to milk (I actually just found this out LOL)
#2: I LOVE dolphins
#3: One of my legs is longer than the other (you can’t tell though LOL)
#4: I used to be a cheerleader!
#5: I’m usually quiet, but I have a silly side as well!

#6: Your writing was featured in your college yearly literary arts magazine called, “Fishladder: A Student Journal of Art and Writing.” The poem you wrote entitled, “Last Week (An Elegy for Shane)” was published in the magazine. Can you share what the poem was about and also how you became involved in being a part of that particular publication?

This was such an awesome accomplishment for me. A campus wide email was sent out about the upcoming publication and told students to submit work to be review. I decided to send in 5 poems and this one got chosen! This poem was about a friend of mine Shane Welch who passed away while playing basketball on campus he had a enlarged heart. It was crazy because he had just expressed that he’d had a romantic interest in me a few days earlier. Then he was gone that quickly. It was just really a lot for me to deal with so this poem was a way for me get those feelings out. I’m glad I was able to share it with others! He was such a awesome person I’m glad I was able to know him!

#7: What are some of your favorite books you have read that you would suggest readers of this to check out?

Wow! I could list tons but a few: The Good Life by Trip Lee, The Circle Maker, Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren and The Hunger Games series LOL.

#8: You were recently inducted into Delta Lambda Christian Sorority. Tell me a little bit about your sorority. How much it means being in an organization of a lifelong sisterhood?

Yes! DLG is a Christian organization of women our main focuses are Souls, Study, Service & Sisterhood. Our goal is empower women through God’s love so that they are able to go out into the world and empower other women. It means so much to be apart of DLG. I’ve literally gained sisters who I can talk with about anything, who continue to build me up in Christ, have hearts for impacting the world, and being about Kingdom Business!

#9: If you would pick ten songs to represent the “Soundtrack of your Life” what would they be and why?

Wow this is really hard because I’ve gone through so many different seasons in my life and each season would have a different soundtrack so I’ll just do a soundtrack of the last few years: 
 
Israel Houghton- Moving Forward 
J. Moss- I Gave It Up 
Vashawn Mitchell- Nobody Greater 
Israel Houghton- I Receive 
V. Rose- Average Girl 
Andy Mineo- Curious 
Tasha Cobbs- Smile 
Trip Lee- One Sixteen 
Lecrae- Gravity 
Fred Hammond- He Lives

#10:  After you complete your Master’s degree program, what are your future career plans?

Well as I mentioned earlier, I may be putting my master’s degree on hold to go back an get my teaching certificate! But I know God has called me to the field of Education so I know that my career will have something to do with that! But stay tuned!

I would like to thank Kiara for allowing me to interview her. She is a very talented, beautiful, and intelligent young lady. I wish nothing but love, happiness, and success. I am sure that she will be an awesome teacher. Shout out to all the great teachers out there! Keep up the good work! Its true, y’all really deserve raises!

Macho, Just Wants to Make You Laugh

macho1

Meet Randy Nance. He goes by the name Macho. His goal is to make you laugh. His dream is to continue to make people laugh for years to come. The Saginaw, Michigan native traveled to Las Vegas, Nevada where he resides now, to pursue his dream. He is living in Vegas people. Of course I could give “The Hangover” run down  of things that may have happened. I do that a lot when I hear my friends go to visit Vegas. But I am pretty sure none of that stuff happened to Macho. I shall digress. Here’s a fun fact for you. Randy works as an On-Air Personality for Power 88.1 FM in Las Vegas. Pretty cool huh?
Read this awesome interview I did so you can get to know Macho and what his interpretation of bringing the funny is all about.

#1: Where did the nickname/stage name “Macho” came from?

My stage name is actually just MACHO. Facebook wouldn’t let me have just a first name so I rolled with it twice. The name derived from the wrestler Randy Savage. Friends from school called me Macho Man Randy Savage. The first part stuck.

#2: Who are you most influential comedians that fuel your passion of making people laugh?

I’m a fan of the art. So there’s a lot of comedians I look to. Rickey Smiley and Steve Harvey because they are both comedians that do radio as well. Just like me. I grew up in the Eddie Murphy era. I loved Redd Foxx and Robin Harris. Dave Chappelle, Cedric the Entertainer, Mike Epps, Kevin Hart, Gary Owen and Corey Holcomb. Even the comedians I know personally here in Vegas like Anton Knight, Booya, Bobby Stauts, J. Reid and Donnie Johnson all have helped fuel my desire to be a great comedian. But the passion comes from working. God gave me that.

#3: When did you decide that pursing comedy was what you ultimately wanted to do?

macho2

I was always a funny/silly person. People told me time after time I should do comedy. My response was “It takes more than being funny to be a comedian.” I still believe that to this day. But hosting live events like date auctions and step shows where I could interact with the crowd made me want to do comedy. May 6, 2011 was the beginning of my comedy career.

#4: Explain how the road to living your comedy dreams transitioned from Michigan (Your Home State) and to Las Vegas (Currently Reside).

If I never moved to Vegas, I don’t think I would have ever started. In Vegas there are so many venues and outlets for aspiring comics. If anyone has a comedic desire, this is a great place to start.

#5: What is your comedy based on?

macho3

My comedy is purely based on funny. I’m somewhat animated and silly. I draw on life experiences for material and also things I think about that just don’t make sense to me.

#6:  Can you share what your every first comedy show was like?

My first show was horrible in my opinion. It was a benefit comedy show where the honoree didn’t even show up. There were 14 people there, all of which were my guests. I had no stage presence or energy. I was just standing there telling jokes. Looking back, I did almost everything wrong and was still marginally funny.

#7: Is there a certain kind of ritual or mode you get into before you hit the stage and perform your comedy?

The only repetitive ritual I go through before a show is prayer. That’s it. I try to mellow out because I’m always nervous. 

#8: What has been the most important piece of advice you have gotten that helps you keep things in perspective as you continue to pursue your dreams?

Anton Knight and Joe Clair gave me the best advice on doing comedy. Anton spoke to me about my confidence after a show I did that didn’t go great. Joe told me to always have a beginning, middle and end. He said, Know what you want to say and be funny, funny, funny.”

#9: Where do you see yourself in 10 years career wise?

10 years from now I’ll definitely be a touring comedian. I may not be a household name, but I’ll have a solid career doing what I love.

#10: Is there anything you want to share with the readers or your fans about any upcoming events to look out for?

I encourage everyone to keep up with me via Twitter, Instagram (@macho1macho), and check my YouTube Channel MachoMan808. Love y’all.

I would like to thank Randy aka Macho for allowing me to interview him. I really appreciate it. Much love, respect, and success to you. Make sure you follow him on Twitter @macho1macho as well as his Instagram (http://instagram.com/macho1macho).

If you still have dreams out there, it is never too late to pursue them. You just have to have the drive dedication to work hard and make things happen.

Welcome to the Bigbake Show

bigbake2
Anthony Baker aka Bigbake is not only a hip-hop artist, but he is the CEO/Co-Founder of Smokngunz Records. So I can only take a guess that he has the best of both worlds. Being an talented artist and molding other talented artists who love hip-hop just as much as he does. You may be wondering how did Anthony got his nickname of “Bigbake.” It actually came from his football and wrestling days in high school. Cool nickname huh?
 
The Saginaw, Michigan native has been laying down tracks and spitting rhymes for quite some time now. I had a chance to interview him to find out more about how his true love for hip-hop began, how Smokngunz Records became to be, and how his lyrical style sets him apart from other hip-hop artists.

#1:  When was the specific time in your life you fell in love with hip-hop and made a decision about pursuing a music career?

In 1996, I bought Twista’s “Adrenaline Rush”. This is what inspired me to start a musical career. It started out as poetry and morphed into hip-hop once I met my click (The Smokngunz) in the U.S. Army.

#2:  You are the CEO and Co-Founder of Smokngunz Records. Can you give a little background history of how the record label was created? What do you think is the most prominent factor that has helped the record label last this long? 

The Smokngunz was started in the barracks of 2-44 ADA in Fort Campbell, Kentucky. Alexander Smith III (Smoke Digga), Haywood Clark (Wood District), and myself, Anthony Baker, Jr. (Bigbake) would have cyphers. Smoke Digga originally had the name for a group that he was rapping with earlier but they never used it. We like it so it stuck with us.

#3:  Who were some of your most important musical influences growing up? 

Music is my drug. I have kept it going on my own. Wood District is now a gospel singer and Smoke Digga is a family man. I just couldn’t give it up. I would do music for free if I would be able to live and prosper as well. I listened to music more than I watched television as a child. My mom used to blast Luther Vandross, Freddie Jackson, All of the Jacksons (together and apart LOL), Whitney Houston, and so many more. My father was more into bands. He played the guitar in a band when I was a child. Through him I listened to Prince, Maserati, The Gap Band etc. As I got older I listened to N.W.A., Rob Base, Salt-N-Pepa, Too $hort, Twista, Outkast, Tela, and waaayyy to many more artists to name. I have always been a music head.

#4:  Do you remember the very first hip-hop song you ever wrote? If so can you share what it was about?

The first song I wrote when I figured out that music would be my journey was called “A Nigga Like Me.” It was pretty much about a paranoid soldier’s thoughts in the military. It was very angry.

#5: What many elements do you think that current hip-hop artists are missing from their music right now?

Before the era of Kendrick Lamar and cast ( J Cole, Wale, etc.) I felt that the game was in a state of no substance. Drake opened that door again with the more sensitive rap, which was an ingenious move, then Kendrick Lamar blew the doors down. Now me are (rap is) more conscious again.

#6:  How would you describe your sound in four words? Explain the reason you picked each of those words.

bigbake3

My sound in four words:  Real, Militant, Truth, and Raw.

Real because it isn’t loosely based on my life, its what was happening at that point in my life.

Militant because I like to preach a lot, give directives and examples.

Truth because it is true LOL.

Raw because before the Drakes, Kendrick Lamars, and a few others, people wouldn’t say the things I say.

#7:  You have a blog on Tumblr (The Official Smokngunz Records Blog).  Explain what information you have on the blog site.

http://bigbake01.tumblr.com/ is raw and random at the moment. It will be informative about the movements of my associates and I. LOL (don’t judge me)

#8:  What gives you the most inspiration when you create lyrical content to your music?

Life gives me all of my inspiration. If I feel like being faithful or in love, that’s what I write about. If I feel like hopping in these streets and getting back to the grind, that’s what my music will focus on.

#9: What does the future hold for Smokngunz Records and Bigbake in the next 10 years?

I will be signing a few artists and releasing projects in the next 1 to 2 years. More signing at first. We will continue to be global. I will continue to push what we already have on the networks now, and simply grow and develop.

#10: Is there anything you want to share with the readers or your fans about any upcoming events to look out for?

You can check out the two singles that we already released:

Bigbake feat. Truth B. Told – “Hustler’s Anthem” (https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/hustlers-anthem-feat.-truth/id604365673)

You can hit me up on ALL of the social media sites @bigbake01 (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, etc.)

Yeun Man Crush Love

Steven Yuen

Before I start this blog post, I just want to define what a Man Crush is. It’s pretty much a musician, artist, or athlete who I am very fond of and respect mainly for their talents. Also if they possess an awesome personality they are considered a dope person in my book. For the record, I am in no way a crazy stalker groupie fan. I am one of those fans that would be totally calm and cool if I ever got the opportunity to meet a celebrity. So there ya go!

Those who know me know that one of my favorite TV Shows ever is The Walking Dead (TWD). I have been a fan of the show since last year. Yes I know I started really late on loving the show but through the help of Netflix and certain websites of the internet, I have caught up with all three seasons of the show. From watching the TWD, I have become a fan of a lot of characters on the show. But there is one character in particular who I am a huge fan of. His name is Steven Yuen. He plays Glenn Rhee on TWD.

Now there are many reasons why I love Glenn on TWD:

—- He is sweet.

——He is sensitive.

—— He has become a freakin’ badass.

—— He is smart.

—— He is pretty much a strategist in many ways.

—— He is adorable.

—— There are times when I see him on the show and he comes into the scene. I whisper: “I love you” as a formal greeting.

—— He is so badass. I know I have said this twice but it’s so damn true!

One day I decided to check out Steven Yeun’s bio just out of curiosity. I found out so many cool things about him.

—— He is a Michigan native! (Even though he was born in Seoul, South Korea)  He is from Troy, Michigan which is about 30 minutes away from Detroit.

—— His parents own two Beauty Supply Stores in Detroit.

—— He is a very handsome young man.

—— He has a brother named Brian who has a gourmet food truck called “The Bun Truck” which he runs in Los Angeles.

—— His birthday is on December 21st.  My birthday is on December 29th. Coincidence, I think not.

—— He graduated from Kalamazoo College in Kalamazoo, Michigan with a BA in Psychology.

—— He can sing and play the guitar quite beautifully.

—— He is a huge Detroit Pistons fan.

—— He did improv comedy at Second City in Chicago before moving to LA.

—— After his parents gave him just two years to pursue his acting dream, in 2010 he landed one of the main character roles on TWD as Glenn Rhee.

—— He has an adorable a black goldendoodle (golden retriever-poodle mix) named Agnes. She is just too cute!

To add more about my fandom, I have made a photo album dedicated to Yuen. I made a vlog post on my YouTube Channel (The AshNerdStar Report) pretty much sharing why I am a big fan of him. I have watched maybe every interview he has done. He’s such an interesting person. It would be really awesome to meet and have a conversation with him.

I have been thinking about a way for Steven to either favorite, follow, or tweet me back on Twitter. The only thing I have tweeted him so far was: “Hey Steven ^_^. How are you?” No response whatsoever. I will not give up my quest. Wouldn’t it be cool if I could interview him for my blog?!?! That would be dooooope!!!!

Well that sums up the many reasons of why I have a man crush on Steven Yeun. I have no idea if he will ever read this. You know what? I am not even going to say that anymore. I feel like I am jinxing a future moment of awesomeness that may occur.

I shall leave with this quote Steven said about Detroit:

“People think that Detroit is this barren wasteland. While there are parts that are not as nice as others, the misconception is not true. It is definitely not a thriving community in Detroit, but it is getting there. There is a lot of heart and love in this city.”

Stay Classy, Homies ^_^.
