“In Sweetwater I get a lot of support and if it wasn’t for the fans I don’t think I’d be pushing myself harder. It’s what keeps me motivated.”

Check out the interview with Mun exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.

Skilly: Where did this all start? Tell us about your journey in the entertainment business.
Mun:
As a kid growing up learning how to DJ I wanted to DJ, but on the other side I learned how to write music. Growing up my dad had his Spanish band, his own group. This is where it all kicked off, out a small town called Sweetwater, TX.

What would be your biggest piece of advice for the young kids out there trying to do what you do?
Stay focused, be yourself, don’t try to be somebody you’re not; it will never get you anywhere. Invest in your craft.

What are some of the hardest challenges and tasks in your position?
Being a husband, a family man, and a father. It’s hard to be an artist at the same time because I have to support my family. I have to try to fit it in as much as I can.

We all know the entertainment business is very tough, but what do you find is the best way to promote and advertise your music?
Invest because it just don’t come easy. Invest in yourself, your music, your profile, and make yourself look like an independent artist that is hungry for the next step.

Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans?
In Sweetwater I get a lot of support and if it wasn’t for the fans I don’t think I’d be pushing myself harder. It’s what keeps me motivated.

Where do you see yourself a year from today?
More healthy and a lil’ farther then we’re am at today; reaching my goals.

Who and what were your biggest inspirations? Who do you look up to in today’s world?
I wanna say I grew up on hip hop. 2Pac is my inspirations today nobody because hip hop is at another level nowadays. It’s not the same, there is a bunch of trash on the radio. The real hip hop is unheard.

How do you feel about the music coming out today? Do you like it?
Not really because most is trash and I can’t understand most of what their saying. Hip hop is not the same any more.
