Naked Highway Delivers Friends With Benefits

Naked HighwayMy buddies Sy Boccari and David Lee Rotten of Naked Highway sent me a really cute gift package including an autographed t-shirt, stickers and promo souvenirs plus David’s debut single, a cover of Cher’s If I Could Turn Back Time. I posted a sexy snap of me in the t-shirt on Instagram and the compliments made me feel really good. I promised the boys that I would post a selfie as soon as I got the drag. It was mild for me considering…

Interviewing Out Rocker Kent James

NickNameByRobHollisA few years ago I stumbled upon pictures of this very hot guy performing queer punk music under the guise of Nick Name. At the time he was giving me a mix of Henry Rollins and metal-shredder Scott Ian from Anthrax with a familiar dash of any in-you-face turn-us-out rockers from our day. And I say “our” day because anyone reading this of any age or generation knows the type I’m telling of. Current musical gruffers and scruffers have included Limp Biscuit, Korn and the like. Little did I know that Nick Name was so much more than just a catchy moniker

The Way I Am – Interviewing Colton Ford

Colton Ford - The Way I Am by Aaron Cobbett 06

When it comes to approachable and relatable celebrities, my friend and pop star Colton Ford ranks among the greatest. I had the chance to speak to Mr. Ford about his new music (which I’m living for!) and where he’s at in his life today. We’ve known each other very well for over 10 years. He is one of the only people I still know from my days in L.A. Life changes and people move on but good true friendships are hard but wonderful to come by. I believe we have that relationship. Time and distance often separates us but it’s as if nothing has changed when we do connect via phone or face to gorgeous face. Man, he hurts my eyes.

Colton has been over to the house a few times for dinner and we always have a true KiKi when we hook up. To know him is to also know his heart is of gold and the spotlight that follows him doesn’t blind him into an oversized ego that comes with fame. He is genuine, real and deserves all the great things coming way and more! This interview with Colton Ford has been a while in the making. I’m so excited to finally share our time together with you, his loyal fans. Thanks to Aaron Cobbett for the fierce photography and Marco Ovando for the amazing video images, and of course Mr. Ford’s team for making this happen!

Colton Ford - The Way I Am by Aaron Cobbett 03

Steven Michael – Hello, my Love! FINALLY, right?! Let’s get right into the all the Tea that’s fit to print. The rest we can laugh about afterwards privately. Can you give us a background check on where you came from and what your childhood was like?

Colton Ford – “I was born in Pasadena, California, and grew up in a suburb of Orange County, California, called Mission Viejo. My parents divorced when I was around 2-years-old, and my mother remarried when I was around 4. My stepfather and I didn’t really mesh, but all in all I had a happy and enjoyable childhood.”

Did you know early on that you wanted to be a singer and how did that all start for you? Who were your early inspirations?

“Well to hear my mother tell it, I was a very happy kid, always singing, performing and entertaining everybody. I’ve just continued to do what I’ve always done. I listened to everything from Boston, The Doobie Brothers and Fleetwood Mac, to The Commodores and Shalimar, to Stevie Wonder, Luther Vandross and Chaka Khan. I also really loved Olivia Newton-John, and got into Manhattan Transfer, Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald. I always seemed to gravitate towards R&B though.”

Colton Ford - The Way I Am by Aaron Cobbett 05

We need to play DJ next time you’re in because our tastes run along the same Classic Rock and Vintage R&B trail. I worship Olivia Newton-John! You’ve got new music coming out and a brand new album. Share the inspiration for the music and where does it all come from? Do you write your own music?

“Well it’s a very organic process for me. I don’t really go into a writing session thinking I’ve got to write this or that, or write a hit song, etc. Generally speaking, I get a track (or tracks) and let the track guide and inspire me. I start humming different melodies, which then start to evolve and lyrics starting coming through. Now I have gone into a writing session with an idea of what I want to say, but overall I let the process unfold in the moment. I write the topline (the melodies and lyrics).”

What part of the process do you enjoy most about recording music?

“I truly love the whole process really. From getting a new track, to writing the topline, to recording it and releasing it, not to mention creating a visual in the way of a video for the song. It’s all really an amazing evolution!”

Colton Ford - The Way I Am by Aaron Cobbett 02

I want to choreograph something for you sometime. It would be hot, trust. What part of the process do you like the least about recording music?

“Waiting to release it once you’ve recorded it!”

I bet! I don’t wait well when I am excited about something. What’s the biggest misconception about you?

“That I’m gay. (laughs) Couldn’t resist!”

Oh, I could say so much right now. (both laugh) Getting to the heart of the matter… Boxers, Briefs or Bare?

“Generally I wear g-strings. I don’t like panty lines, and I like the room you get for your junk.”

Colton Ford - LMLA by Marco Ovando 06

You make me smile. Now be a dear and send me one of those g-strings after a good workout. STOP IT! You’re being silly. What type of man turns you on and where/what would be the perfect date?

“My partner, Angelo, totally turns me on. I like a man that has a sense of himself and his masculinity without walking around as though he can’t put his arms down by his side. You know what I mean? That uber tough machismo bullshit! I’m also a huge sucker for a pretty face (cut to pic of Angelo). I also like brains and a good sense of humor. Now for the perfect date.”

“That’s a tough one. I’d have to say April 25th. Because it’s not too hot, not too cold, all you need is a light jacket. (laughing) Couldn’t resist quoting that great line from Miss Congeniality. Seriously, I know it sounds cheesy, but the perfect date for me is to stay home with my partner, smoke a little pot (yes, I said it) and have a bedroom picnic watching a great movie.”

Colton Ford - LMLA by Marco Ovando 04

Hunty! Sing it to the choir, advocate. Fierce. Have you always been beefy with brawn? Because my dear love, your body rocks the house. Have always had a secret crush on you. But please don’t tell yourself that. I’d die if you knew. I DIE.

(laughing) “You’re so sweet, but I’ll pretend like I don’t know. Rest assured, your secret’s safe with me. Better that way cuz I’d probably get a big head if I knew! I was leaner in my 20’s, doing more cardio and less weight-lifting, which I didn’t really need to do as much of as I had a fast metabolism. At that point in my life, though, I thought my ass was too big and wanted to get it smaller. Didn’t work, and my big butt actually turned out to be an asset in the long run. Good night. Here all week!!” (both laugh)

“I got bigger in my mid-30’s, with my most brawny period being in my early to mid 40’s. I’m 6’ and got up to around 218 pounds. I’ve sized down as I entered the latter part of my 40’s because it was time, plus the joints start telling you when you get a little older to not beat ‘em up as much. I’ve listened!!”

Colton Ford - LMLA by Marco Ovando 10

Do you find that people want to discard you from being a serious musician because of your film past or have you had open arms?

“I’ve experienced both. Some people just don’t want to recognize me as a musician, or anything else for that matter, because they think that since I did porn I don’t have anything else to offer, or that I’m not entitled to pursue anything else. I’ve had more people, though, that get me as an artist and support what it is that I’m doing. I also think that my body of work speaks for itself. I’ve been in the music business for 30 years, and have had some great success, and have worked with some pretty amazing artists that are significant players in the business. My music is not an afterthought of porn. Word!”

TESTIFY! How do you deal with the haters and are they out there waiting for you to fail? We all come across them but should realize their hate comes from a place of unhappiness with one’s self projected onto someone else. 

“Anyone who puts themself out there has to accept the fact that haters come along with it. I don’t care who you are, or what you do, you will have people who will lash out at you for a whole host of reasons, most of which have nothing to do with you. I’m very “Four Agreements” about it. I think the haters say more about themselves in their rants, then about the people they’re yapping about.”

Colton Ford - The Way I Am by Aaron Cobbett 07

When do you find time to relax and chill? What does that time consist of and what are you into?

“I find it, and if it’s not readily available, I work to make the time. I realize more and more how essential it is to create a balance between work and a personal life, and how difficult it can be in today’s world to strike that balance. That down time can consist of a number of things, from cuddling in bed watching TV with my partner, to going out to dinner, to going to the movies. Whatever works in the moment.”

You’ve just relocated to Southern California. What’s the plan for 2013 here on the West Coast?

“Just to continue to do the work that I’m doing. It doesn’t really matter where home base is in this global society we live in. I can do what I do wherever I’m at. I have my studio, and most of my collaborations are facilitated remotely. I’ve been going back and forth from Cali to NYC since I moved, so I consider myself more bi-coastal now.”

Colton Ford - LMLA by Marco Ovando 05

I’m just glad we have you over here more on the west coast now! What’s your advice for up and coming artists who are trying to get noticed in the industry?

“There’s no template. Just be ready to work your ass off, and prepare yourself for the ups and downs that are a huge part of the creative experience. Also, you’ve got to want it for the right reasons, and recognize that you will always have to be the one who wants it the most, even when you’re surrounded by people who believe in you.”

Colton Ford - LMLA by Marco Ovando 01

Your comment about being the one that wants it the most rings true. It’s like me getting back into the pageant/contest circuit a bit. I’m the one making it happen, nobody else, even though I have amazing support. We have to want something strong enough for ourselves to make a change or first (second and third) step! Any stories of hardship/adversity throughout the years in the business that you can share to prevent other’s from barking up the wrong trees and making wrong choices?

“My story of multiple record deals and finding myself at the short end of the stick is not a unique story to those who have had the good fortune of getting a deal. Won’t bore you with the details. All I can say is that it’s a process that you have to feel your way through, and a process that takes time. The overnight sensations don’t happen very often at all. Just try and align yourself with people who understand you and your vision, and want and have the means with which to help you in your efforts to realize your dream.”

Colton Ford - The Way I Am by Aaron Cobbett 04

After your move off the Island of Manhattan, what can you reflect on as the best and worst parts of the city? I know you had turmoil during Hurricane Sandy trying to get out of your place and out of New York last year.

“New York is an amazing place that covers the full spectrum of opportunity, from good to bad and everything in-between. It has so served me and my career, and the creative spirit is beyond! The day-to-day of it as a resident can wear you out. It’s relentless, not to mention the expense of living there, which continues to get more and more costly. I will always have a relationship with NYC, and it will change through the years as relationships do.”

I HEART NEW YORK CITY! Many, many fabulous memories and some tales of woe, as well, come out of there for me. You and I have known each other for a good many years which I really worship. I’ve been down many roads and have kept a certain group of confidants in my circle. Glad you’re one of them, my Love. What do you miss about your carefree days of yesteryear? Do you miss the circuit party scene that consumed us all at one time? We’re not 25 anymore, sweetheart.

“What? When did that happen? (laughing) I definitely appreciate my past, and there are certain things that I remember with great fondness, some I even miss. I do really love the place I’m at in my life, even with all the struggles, and I’m grateful that I haven’t gotten stuck in anything from my past that could have kept me from getting to where I am now. I totally enjoyed the circuit scene for what it was when I was in it, but it doesn’t carry the same attraction to me now that it did then, thankfully. I’d rather have dinner with my partner, sometimes with friends, and have a nice conversation. Everything has its time.”

Colton Ford - LMLA by Marco Ovando 09

It sure does. Glad I did it when I did! What tour dates do you have planned? Where can your fans and followers find you and your music other than our house for dinner next time you’re in Palm Springs?

“Tour is currently being structured and people can find my music online (i.e., iTunes, Amazon, Juno, etc.), and at specialty shops for those releases where we have physical cd’s pressed up. Please follow me on Facebook and Twitter at coltonfordmusic. Updates with the latest and greatest will be there to find!!”

I know you’re a personal trainer and a very successful one. Any advice for people out there to lose a few pounds before swimsuit season begins?

“Just try and stay consistent with your workout regimen, and if 90% of what you eat can be as close to the way it came into existence as possible when you consume it, you’ll be doing yourself a lot of good!”

COLTON FORD - The Way I Am - Album Cover

Any final thoughts, Master Ford? Are you about to dominate the gay dance music charts for weeks to come, or what?! I need one of your calendars, STAT.

“Just check out my new album, The Way I Am, including collaborations with Wawa, Ray Isaac, Jens Bergmark/RedTop, Chris Willis, Nervo, Ultra Nate, Chris Castagno, Count De Money, Razor N Guido, Julien Aletti, Raphael Aletti, Fagault & Marina, and Ron Schrader. The big album will be released by Peace Biscuit/ Woop Woop!”

I WORSHIP! My appreciation to my dear friend Colton Ford for sharing his honest thoughts and precious time with our readers and his fans. I’m so excited his smash Let Me Live Again (The Remixes) hit #2 on Billboard’s Breakout Club Play chart doing quite well! His 2013 calendar is also ready for your office or bedroom wall. That was entirely funded by Kickstarter as was his Marco Ovando-directed video for “Let Me Live Again” that pays homage to our hero Tom of Finland and the iconic imagery that came with his favorite videos of the 90’s. Read up on Colton’s blog at Guy Spy and dance down to his new music!

Colton Ford’s new album The Way I Am will be available on iTunes for pre-order on June 4, 2013 with the digital release dropping on June 18, 2013. SHWERQ!

CREATING HOLLYWOOD MAGIC AT JOE BLASCO

Steven Michael Life Cast - Joe Blasco

What do you get when you cross a room full of anxious students, one shirtless candidate for Mr. All American Gent 2013, eight knowledgeable hands working on his bald head and a jar of Vaseline?! HA! I know what it sounded like but it was SO much more. I arrived to Joe Blasco’s Makeup Training School in Hollywood only a few minutes late blaming that the “dog ate my homework.” You should ALWAYS blame it on the dog. I had spoke to Veronica at the school via the telephone a few times before arriving about what we were working on regarding my Creative Costume category creation. Joe had asked her personally to take on my project and her creative juices have been boiling! Without popping my Pageant Cherry in front of your eyes I will allow only so much of what went on in Hollywood last Monday. Come see me March in Dayton and I’ll show you EVERYTHING.

I made my way back through the school to the workroom where a dozen of students moved around making “Life Casts” (or head/shoulder busts) of each other’s heads for future prosthetics work. I stood and observed for a few minutes before sitting my ass down in a chair for my turn. It was explained by a few of the instructors what the process would be while I listened intently, half nervous/half excited. Standing there gave me a great chance to really see what transpires. Everyone seemed to be handling it well so I figured I’d be just fine.

When it was my opportunity to position myself in the chair, Veronica, a senior student at Joe’s school and my special liaison, placed a black trash bag around my legs and draped one over my shoulders like a yearbook portrait with tape to hold in place. From what was said, the alginate formula which is what they would be making my cast from dries very quickly and runs wherever it wants. Since I already had my head shaved there wouldn’t be a need for a skull cap. Veronica brushed Vaseline on my beard and mustache (and top of my chest hair) so the finished mold wouldn’t get stuck and rip my facial fur out at the roots.

Mr. Rob Burnam, an experienced instructor and true go-to man in Hollywood, mixed up the alginate and brought it over to us to begin. Alginate is like the thick mixture one would have teeth impressions made from. I was given a few instructions but the experience was worth more than anything they could have told me. As the cold mixture was immediately placed on me, four people stood around me and started working on my head pressing in crevices, smoothing it out with fingers. Slowly the mixture went over my ears and down past my chin and over my shoulders. The sensory deprivation was on overload at this point. If you’re into bondage, you may really enjoy this.

The alginate indeed does harden and gets very heavy fast. I was hearing conversation around the muffled atmosphere but would be told to either press against their pressure for resistance or to give me a time check. I returned with a thumbs-up from under my plastic California Raisin costume. Only a few times inside the head cast did I think “what if” I really needed to get out of this because from my angle I wasn’t going anywhere soon. I had the urge to blink my eyes inside but kept a round of patient breaths while the process continued. It gave me a few very peaceful moments to contemplate just what this title has truly become to me. It’s more than these words describe.

Atop the alginate, a full head and shoulders of white plaster bandage strips were then placed across the hardening mixture as one would have during a broken arm or leg to compete the casting. Even more smoothing continued and the weight was becoming considerable. Slow breaths continues peacefully. Slits around my nostrils were carefully trimmed for better accessible breathing. No straws, just my nose. Coughing would be out of the question. It was quite snug around my throat, as well.

I was alerted that when they begin to split the cast that they would not be cutting my actual ear but it may feel like it since the trim would be straight across from one shoulder to the other. I was instructed to lean forward as fingers began to find their ways under the neck slits for gripping the structure. Once I started to wiggle my nose and cheeks, I soon slid out of it with their help and my part was done. I was very happy to have finished it. They showed me inside the two pieces and how well it turned out. With the talented Chris Bergschneider, Mr. Burman, Veronica and her instructor working on me at once the process only took thirteen minutes I was told. I felt incredibly special having the full attention to every detail.

I cleaned up, slid my shirt back on and discussed some of the formalities and details of the pageant and what the mask would be in finality. Students continued to buzz about and I truly felt like I was on the set of Face Off. Man, this was quite the experience! I’ll be back in February for Veronica’s final exam and the reveal of my grand Creative Costume for Mr. All American Gent 2013. This creation is going to be SIQ off-the-chain for your nerves D-O-W-N the house, Hunty!

And yes, I’m just saying…

Joe-Blasco-Professional-Makeup-Artist-Training-Schools

The brilliant magic being created at Joe Blasco’s Makeup Schools needs to be seen to believe. If this has EVER been a remote interest of yours, look into it. Like I was saying to Veronica, this business will always be in demand and isn’t going anywhere. It’s made me even think about my future possibilities.

Big THANK YOU to Joe, Veronica, Rob, Chris and crew. This was one of my absolutely favorite experiences, for reals. I’m one lucky man to have Joe Blasco on #TeamStevenMichael for AAGent 2013. I can’t stop staring at the picture above of my life cast. I looked concerned but I thought I was smizing! Ah… It looks amazing, nonetheless. So damn happy!

ON THE ROAD TO ALL AMERICAN GENT 2013

All American Gent 2013

Every once in a while I update what’s happening with my pageant run for Mr. All American Gent 2013 on the special place I created for that The Road to All American Gent 2013 Blog but the updates don’t make it here too often. I’ve been very wrapped up in the holidays and found myself working quietly here at the house while people buzz about making waves around town and beyond. My “drag closet” is busting at the seams with costumery projects that would give Project Runway squirrels a run for their reality.

It does overwhelm from time to time as a patient deep breath guides me through the perfected process of running for a national title such as Mr. All American Gent 2013. However, please don’t confuse an overwhelm of moment with weakness and despair. Oh, contrare. Things look really good. Again, if it wasn’t for my sponsors I wouldn’t be typing these words and heading to compete. THEY are the reason I’ll be there with my A Game, because Baby… This isn’t cheap! Trust me. Gagging.

As I discover E6000 glue worms around knuckles and a stranded 20ss A/B rhinestone in the distance I see finality of the process in the horizon while another deep breath comes over me. But for a different reason. I’ll be sad to see this end. I much more invested, literally, than I ever imagined I’d be. Win, lose or WIN! I’ll be richer because of the experience I have gone and will go through. I hope to be living  and doing that as Mr. All American Gent while spreading Scott’s word and passion for the art of entertainment and illusion to listening ears and eyes. We’ll see on March 16.

And then comes the aftermath. If I don’t do as well as I’m seeing things now, congrats to the winners and continue my support naturally. No Tea, No Shade. I’m going to have a great time, regardless of what hands we are dealt. Everyone I know that is competing for Gent is either a former national title holder or quite the deal so we will ALL be fierce. It’s going to be great contest. Plus, the national All American Goddess at Large 2013 pageant is also happening alongside ours which means bigger crowds and more excitement for the weekend at Masque Nightclub in Dayton, Ohio.

The winner of Gent will have his first booking at the final night of AAG at Large which means even more drag and routine for him. This all comes into play for me since there’s a good chance that I may be staying to perform. I have to think this way or what would I be going to compete? The possibilities excite me considerably. Which reminds me… Off to the gym to train.

Dates of Mr. All American Gent 2013 – March 14-16, 2013. Hope to see you there! X

PALM SPRINGS PRIDE 2012 – GAY TIMES

Pride Palm Springs 2012 is approaching and here’s where and what and who you should be doing. If you’re part of the LGBT community and can’t miss the gym, World Gym will have a weekend pass for $29 so bring your muscled ass over to see us and we’ll take care of you. The staff is incredibly friendly and strive to make sure each and every member is well taken care of. Rainbow Gods will shine over our Palm Springs Oasis with the Block Party on Arenas (or Queerville to the locals) and the Main Festival 10-6 both days, November 3-4. Entrance to the Festival is $15 with $25 for both days, I believe.

I’m performing with Mac Valentine on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. on one of the main stages. I’ve choreographed two numbers for Mac-A-Licious who has surprisingly picked up very fast for never working with a professional choreographer. Shaun Waters is dancing alongside us and we plan on having a really fun festive time on stage being the showgirls that we not-so-secretly are. We’ll be offering Nasty Pig thug punk realness. Or maybe just a jockstrap. Come see for yourself. Would love to see and hear you in the audience giving us cheers and applause. I’m especially looking forward to performing. It’s been a while. Well, on a stage… X

NAKED HIGHWAY DOES SAMANTHA FOX

Grab a pillow and get into bed with these fun loving scruffy meat lovers. Naked Highway called out to me through the website looking for some media love for their brand new release “Touch Me” – a cover of the fantastic Samantha Fox brilliance. I simply had to give it a mention here since I am a HUGE Sam Fox fan. There are remixes a’plenty available on iTunes and Amazon. You can follow their outrageous Tweets on their Twitter page or find their website here at Naked Highway. Brett from Naked Highway sent me a message saying: The group has just received a msg from Sam Fox herself! She says “Fab X love it love Sam!”

I wanted to post their “In and Out” video with its too-many-men-I-wanna-bed content but the embedded feature was giving me crickets. Here’s a screen capture of one of my favorites from the video. He does things with his mouth that should be illegal. Most of the hot male tamales in the video work on many levels. Hook me up, Naked Highway!

THE ROAD TO ALL AMERICAN GENT 2013

I’ve written an open letter to friends, followers and fans about working towards becoming the very first Mr. All American Gent and wanted to share it here. If anyone is interested in helping a brother out, any amount of interest is greatly appreciated and will be well used towards the fierce glitz this grown man needs to grab his tiara, err, sash and crown. For your consideration…

Dear Friends,

Thank you for your time.

I come to you bringing exciting news! As many of you know I am a natural born performer wanting all the attention to myself. Sometimes I go looking for it. Sometimes it finds me. The stage is my home. Regardless of what I’m doing I find myself in a spotlight be it locally at work or with my words on the Internet with my blogs and social networks. I put myself there and I like the way it feels. To know me is to know these words ring quite true.

However, for years I chased my time on the stage and found a place on many. But then I took a reasonable break from it because I became comfortable and proud of what I had done. Quite content, actually. I began letting others live my dream for themselves, so to speak. It’s my time once again.

I’ve decided to compete for the title of Mr. All American Gent 2013 being held in Dayton, Ohio, next year in March. The will be the first year for the contest which is a new male entertainer division and companion to the already established All American Goddess pageantry system for female impersonators, drag queens and transsexuals. I would love to say that I thought long and hard about my decision which would be partially true. As soon as the contest was announced on Facebook I knew immediately that I would be there competing. It feels right to me.

In a way I feel like I’ve been representing promoter Scott Gonyaw ever since I judged his All American Goddess at Large 2012 pageant last year by championing his belief, dedication, passion and respect for the art of entertainment to those who haven’t witnessed. Hopefully I will find a stronger presence within his system after the contest is complete and we contestants play our best hands. It’s any man’s game. But I need your help.

I’m looking for support and sponsorship of any kind. I have a PayPal account and Fundrazr on Facebook set up and if anyone this reaches could help out I would worship and be all the more grateful. I also have an Official Gold Sponsor level offer to anyone interested in having a banner placed on my websites for at least one year and throughout my reign. Ask for details!

If anyone is in the Dayton area March 14-16 and wants to see a smart, talented and creative man live out a dream representing those who matter most to him then meet me there! With my reign I plan on giving back and reaching out to the community on many levels. If you have time to drop me a supportive note as I prepare, please do. Assist me in showing others to fulfill their dreams no matter what age, image, size or orientation. And let’s face it, I’m a just showgirl at heart so let the games begin.

Sincerely Yours, Steven Michael

Please follow out my amazing journey at theroadtoaag.blogspot.com and enjoy the days of living vicariously.

SOLOMON MAKES MAD MUSIC

Every once in a while I’ll do a feature on people who I call The DreamChasers. Ones that have reached out to me in hopes of some media love and recognition for jobs well done. I’m unable to get to everyone right away and some things just aren’t right for the site. I include artists here for features of entertainers that I believe in and who grabbed my attention. They are varied but talented and I’m thrilled to have a piece of them here on my domain.

“Life Goes On” is the latest offering from out rapper and singer Solomon who infuses his own experiences of adolescent rumblings, drug fueled youth and family turmoil to create honest music that has a really nice edge to it. The melody is comfortable and his voice is cool. I love his sexy pout. (I wanna chew his lips off!) Solomon says this when asked about being a rapper and a singer, “I’m an artist. There are days I rap and days I sing. Just so happens this new single is a dance single.” He also cover’s Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own” and does a great job on it. I love her version while he really makes it his own. I honestly enjoyed it. Especially the rap during towards the end. I was just getting off to the hot “Wit Us You Can’t…” Very kicky and up.

Check out Solomon and let us know what you think! I’m feeling him and what he’s doing! Wishing him BIG LUCK from my camp. WHURQ!

OUT RAPPER – SINGER
