Interviewer: How did you choose your name?
Before I began creating Conscious type music I was given the name Platinum by those who enjoyed the type of music I was singing. It was said that my voice would propel me to go Platinum in the music industry. When I abandoned that whole persona and begin singing music with a purpose I ditched the Platinum title by shortening Platinum with Plat and adding Conscious to reflect my state of mind.
Interviewer: Do you perform live?
It has been many years since I performed live. I am looking forward to networking and visiting many States and Countries to circulate the messages in the music.
Interviewer: How have you managed to circulate your music?
The Internet has made it possible for my music to reach People all over the world exposing many People to the messages in my music. My next direction is to travel and spread my music.
Interviewer: Do you do any charity work?
As a child I began singing in homeless shelters, hospitals and prison facilities. I currently work with the homeless by donating and creating songs which raise awareness of their situation.
Interviewer: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
I feel major labels can cause some artist to loose sight of who they are. I would sign a major deal if I was allowed to stay true to what I believe in and that is spreading message music. Music meant to inspire, uplift, inform and unify.
Interviewer: Why do you feel Conscious music is so important?
It is important because music is very powerful and has the ability to alter one's thought process. The youth are the most effected by music these days. Many of our youth listen to music with raunchy lyrics and degrading messages. These types of songs can cause one to have a negative outlook on life. I've created songs such as Black Pharaohs which speak about our Ancient Egyptian History, Harriet, which is a dedication to our Ancestor Harriet Tubman, The Homeless song, and many other songs which disseminate crucial messages. I feel these types of songs can have a positive impact on today's youth and People of all ages.
Interviewer: What is your motivation?
My motivation is receiving positive feedback from others after hearing my music. Many have shared stories of how certain songs I created made a difference in their lives. They express gratitude for creating music which inspires others.
Interviewer: Any place you would like to travel to?
I have never been to Africa. This is the place I long to see in my lifetime.
Interviewer: Any last words about your music and outreach?
I would like to ask all my Brothers and Sisters to please set their differences aside and join together as one. This is the only way we are going to rise above the global oppression of Africans. I would also like to ask each and everyone who supports my music to please help circulate the messages in the music. We must deprogram our minds and know our self worth. I strive to inspire and uplift all who listen to my music.
