First of all, why don't you introduce yourself to those of us who don't
already know you?
My name is KC Jockey. I am a
How would you describe your musical style, and some of your
My style of music is defined different
than most. It's melodic metaphors of clarity and different sounds all
mixed in one caliber. Any gerne of music I am able to go with so it's hard
to put me in one departmentt of musical flavour. My influences are a few of the
best of the best who have done it and still are doing it. KRS-1, LL Cool
J, Michael Jackson, AC/DC, Bruce Springsteen, Kenny Rogers, Smokey
Robinson, Madonna, Prince, Yellowman, Bob Marley to name a few.
A few words about your new single Girl
My new single Girl You're Free is aimed to
all people who are with me and against domestic violence. Just showing our
powerful females love and respecting them without hurting them physically
How did you find your way to
musicmaking in the first place, and did you receive any training on the
I found my way to music thru the elements and the
gift of God my higher power. Thankful and grateful for such a gift. Being
able to express good great thoughts and messages of positive things thru
musical words and beats is amazing and a blessing. I was born with swaggg
and meaningful flavor to the mind of greatness so there was no training
needed for it. From birth growing up I been musically inclined from
dancing to singing etc reciting poems at a young age.
What can you tell us about your record label Sweet
Being independent is the greatest,
having all the say so as we combine a team to make it all happen and be
heard and loved positively. I named this label after my belated mother who
died in a car accident with 3 others in 1997. She went to Jamaica to bury
her mom and on her way from the church to the burial ground I lost her in
a fatal car crash. So I got more serious with life and my careers from then. As I struggle to do it all alone without a investor. Many offers,
but always some BS, so I stayed alone to make it happen.
You have also done some acting
in your career, most prominently maybe in the indie movie What Goes
Around. What can you tell us about yur film work?
Yes I have played a few minor roles in American
Gangster and I Am Legend, with Denzel Washington and Will Smith
Russell Crowe to name a few. It was fun and a great experience as I do
needs to be done to reach the higher levels of acting in my career.
What Goes Around was a great experience as well, I played a major don who
schooled and told the younger ballers not to do the evilous things in life
and sex without condoms etc etc and be safe having sex etc. Positive
scripts were my aim towards great messages.
Being in a independent film is a trying procedure with the budget and all.
But the major film production is more catered too and more organized to
the capital T.
How did you get into acting in the first place, and
did you ever take any acting classes or something like that?
when I was younger I was always into acting like in kindergarten doing skits
and reciting poems. I'd not taken any acting classes for it. In Atlanta
2 years ago I had to do a particular skit so I went to an acting class to see
what it was about to get a few credits into the movie business. I was in a
class or 2 with Tyler Perry's colleagues to get a particular role.
How would you describe your
approach to acting?
My approach towards acting and my
career is deep but I must take it 1 day at a time. All will combine and go
great as God has planned as doors open in a timely fashion.
Actors (or indeed actresses) who
Actors who have inspired me are Sidney Poitier,
Bill Cosby, Al Pacino, Denzel Washington, Will Smith, Robert De Niro,
Clint Eastwood, Burt Reynolds, and a few others.
You have of course also appeared in your
music videos. How does this compare to acting in a movie?
my videos have been acting from day 1 till now, but more mainstream now than
ever. Pop mainstream now all is good as it gets greater. I get into
character of whatever I am tryin to act out and be that different
character. It's all fun.
making music and acting, you are also busy in a number of charities. Want
to talk about those for a bit?
As for charities I enjoy
giving back to all communities and people who are less fortunate than
others to have a few things in life. I love the world of people and love
to see a smile on others facee. Unity is strength as we all give a helping
hand, I do it from Jamaica my home country and in the USA grounds as well.
Other islands as well now and then like Trinidad, Guyana and the list goes
on. When all is said and done it's gonna get better when my income is greater
