Jamie: Ok, I’m here with one of the most ridiculously funny comedians you’re ever going to see, Mr. Michael Malone. Thanks for taking the time out to do a quick interview Michael, I appreciate that.

Michael: Thank you for having me. That’s a pretty ridiculously awesome introduction. Thank you. I’m excited to be here!

Jamie: I start everyone off with a question about the cause… so let’s get right to that. What is it about cancer awareness that made you want to get involved? Was it just a general compassion, or have you had the misfortune of knowing someone who has gone through it?

Michael: Actually, it’s a mix between both. I’m on the road 48 weeks a year and blessed to meet many of my fans in countless shows across the country. One of the best parts of my job is being able to connect with the audience and make friendships at each stop. That said, it’s alarming how many folks I meet on a monthly basis that are walking through this disease with their family or personal life. After each show, I tend to get some version of a fan sharing, “I so needed a laugh tonight, this is what I’ve been going through,” and hearing so many of those stories and experiences, I’ve felt the urge to become active and contribute however I can.

Jamie: Well I’m certainly glad to have you involved. Ok, so let’s go back to the beginning. What got you into doing comedy? At what point did you decide it was something you were cut out for, and what was it like for you at first? Did it come naturally, or was it something you had to get a little used to before you became comfortable with it?

Michael: I didn’t fit in at school… at all. I was really overweight and didn’t have a male authority figure in my life, so it was hard for me to bond with the other guys about sports and eating steaks, because, well, I didn’t and don’t care about it either… but I could be funny. I figured that if I couldn’t fit in, I might as well stick out. I had absolutely no plan for my life, and at the time, I didn’t know that being a comedian was even the least bit realistic. My buddy called me up one day and said he was going to the Funnybone Comedy Club that Monday, and my first response was, “Why?” I was so clueless. He said he had stage time, and I all-out begged him to get me on too. Then, boom! A few phone calls later we had a 5 min spot on a Monday night, and my life got placed on a path that would never reverse. We felt like we made it that night. We were 18 and 19 at the time and getting sneaked into a comedy club to do what we loved. I say that I caught “the bug” that night: the energy, the laughter—it completely overwhelmed me. I had never felt that “high” before. And now, ten years later, I can’t go a few days without it.

Jamie: Let’s talk a little about your style, because I think you’re one of the absolute best at being able to improv off the cuff. Some comedians are programmed into their acts and get a little thrown off if a crowd is too vocal… and then some set the crowd up for expected or triggered responses that they already have scripted bits designed to play off of that with… but you incorporate a LOT of unscripted spur of the moment improv, and you play off the randomness of the crowd as well as anyone I’ve ever seen. Tell us a little about that. Does it just come naturally, or was it a skill you had to work on and develop over time, and how much do you anticipate that being a part of each show ahead of time?

Michael: First off, thank you! Secondly, it is true improv. I have nothing in mind before I step on stage, as far as the audience goes. As you mentioned, some guys plan on setting the audience up at certain points, or they scan the crowd before hand looking for ugly shirts and hairpieces, but I don’t. I also do not attack people; I wait for them to engage me. The way I see it, anyone can get on stage and make fun of things, but I try hard to listen to the audience and build off what they give me. In some respects, you could say that I let them dig their own grave. I did study improv for a few years, touring clubs, bars and corporate events. It was an amazing point in my career—sort of my “college experience,” if you will. I was on the road with friends; money was good, and the excitement of building a two-hour show from absolutely nothing was unbeatable. It really was like bringing a knife to a gunfight. I slowly found myself mixing those worlds together—stand up and improv. I would find myself doing 5-10 minutes off somebody’s pet’s name at one show, but then again there’s many nights that I don’t do any crowd work at all. When we filmed my new special “Casual Sext” I came out and did 50 mins of straight material, and as the encore I came back out and did 15 mins of crowd work. And God, did it feel good. I’m not one to stick to a script or plan, so coming out with the complete freedom that night was so much fun. I actually ended up using most of it in the special—that you can download for $5 on malonecomedy.com—shameless promotion, you know it is. But back to the story, in improv, I was taught that you should be “bigger than life” on stage. The analogy I always think of is King Kong. You take a suggestion and multiply it by 10. When I applied that concept to my stand-up sets, I really noticed a transition and style begin to develop. That’s when my career really started opening up.

Jamie: Getting the crowds as involved as you do, I’m sure you’ve had your fair share of crazy moments. What’s the craziest, or one of the craziest things that’s ever happened out on tour?

Michael: Ok, well, this may not be the craziest, but it sure as hell was the most fun… I was playing the Funnybone in Richmond VA around Christmas, and they had a tree on stage. Under the tree, Santa had left a Nerf ball gun. All week I kept staring at this thing while I was on stage and thinking, “I really want to shoot someone with this thing.” Long story, short: Saturday night comes along, and a crowd member engages me. We go back and forth a minute, when I decide to grab the Nerf gun and threaten him with it. Turns out that this dude is an ex-marine, now local sheriff, and he is HUGE. He stood up to challenge me to shoot him, and the crowd went crazy. First shot missed. Second shot missed. Third shot, though, I put the gun down by my crotch and acted like it was my dick then fired and the thing flies back 9 rows smack towards his forehead, when he reaches up and grabs it out of mid-air like Mister Miyagi from the Karate Kid! It was hilarious and fun, and really, those are the moments I have the best time, when everyone gets an experience not just a show. I make an effort to create that atmosphere wherever the tour takes me.

Jamie: Speaking of touring, you run a pretty crazy schedule. What did you say… 48 out of 52 weeks this year you’re touring? That’s insane. What’s it like being on the road nonstop like that? Are you constantly looking for new material, and are you still able to maintain a personal life and see friends, family, and your significant other?

Michael: Ha ha, it is crazy some days… hell, most weeks, but it’s been a goal of mine since early in my career. I worked with John Morgan, and he was talking about his schedule of 46 weeks, and I immediately took that on as what I wanted to be my standard schedule. I’ve been incredibly blessed by my fans’ support and great rooms to accomplish and maintain that goal for the last three years. As for writing, I do a lot of it on stage. I consider myself to be constantly developing, but of course, it’s a process taking new material from “new” to “polished.” I have jokes in all stages at any given time. I’ve never been a big fan of sitting down to write; I’m far too ADD inclined. But I love being in the moment. If I have an idea, or a loose structure in mind, I take it to stage and sink or swim, I find out pretty quickly if it has legs and riff to find the direction I want to develop it with. If I see it has potential, I take it home and tag it up. As far as friends and family go, naturally, it’s tough to stay connected. I can’t count on 100 sets of fingers and toes how many parties, weddings, birthdays, and anniversaries I’ve missed over the years. When you’re first starting out you don’t know when the next check is coming in, so you drop what you’re doing and take whatever opportunity is in front of you. But I am blessed by an amazing support system. My family is behind me 200 percent and in the audience at every opportunity they have, and my girlfriend is so supportive that she literally kicks me out of the house to do time on the few nights I am home because she wants me taking advantage of every opportunity… or she just likes having the place to herself. But technology makes life on the road much easier nowadays.

Jamie: Let’s talk influences. Who were the guys you enjoyed the most, and how much of an impact or influence did they have over your style or career?

Michael: I’ve found that by surrounding yourself with awesome people, it drives you to work harder and push more too. I have the pleasure of being friends with a great group of comics whom I not only appreciate as friends, but also respect and very much look up to. Guys like Marc Ryan, Tom Simmons, Collin Moulton, and Vince Morris. Each of them are always working on new material and finding new ways to be heard. When you place yourself in a wolf pack like that, you either find a way to keep up or get left behind. They’ve all had influences on me in different ways, and I value each of them. Now, that’s speaking about what influences me now, but growing up I would sneak out to the garage and play my mom’s Richard Pryor and Steve Martin albums. I drew a lot of influence and inspiration from black comedians too. Richard Pryor, Martin Lawrence, Sinbad, and Eddie Murphy were all staples during my youth, and I think that’s where a lot of my energy and characters come from. When I got older I started to really get into Bill Hick’s albums. He is hands-down my favorite of all time.

Jamie: Yeah, it was Pryor and Carlin for me early on, and then I really enjoyed the dry wit of guys like Steven Wright and Mitch Hedberg… but I watched or listened to just about anyone I could. Now before we get into your new stuff and what you currently have going on, let’s touch on your first release “Let’s Get Physical.” Tell our readers a little bit about that. What was it like to release your first comedy album, and how did it change the playing field for your career?

Michael: “Let’s Get Physical” was a really fun project and exciting time in my career. I was in New York the night of the iTunes release due to fly back to LA at 4 a.m. So, naturally, as the CD dropped at 11 p.m., I was up the entire time Facebooking, Twittering, emailing, and smoke signaling everyone I knew to promote the thing. The work paid off, though. It debuted at 27 on the iTunes chart and by 4 a.m. it had moved to spot 18. By my connecting flight, I was at spot 11, and when I landed in LA, I had voice mails and text messages from my family, friends, and management that it’d went all the way to number five. It topped out as the number three selling comedy album in the U.S. and number eight in the world. It was a really flattering and encouraging to me. In the comedy world, it seems that what a lot of people want to know is “Where’s your TV credits” and “What have you done lately?” I may not have my late night spot or Comedy Central Presents—yet—but my fans are friggin’ dynamite, and that top ten selling album is a great tangible accomplishment to show for the 10 years I’ve put in so far. It’s times like that when you’re reaffirmed and it makes all the awful hotels and weekends away from family worth it. I’m so grateful for the team behind me and my fans who gave me that day.

Jamie: How about the Podcast? Give our readers a quick synopsis and tell us what they can expect to hear when they tune in?

Michael: Ah yes, the podcast: “The Michael Malone Show.” Creative name, I know. I am a horribly shy person off stage, and I was scared to death of this thing originally… but I’m a music nerd and comedy fan, and I spend my time traveling and being exposed to amazing talents, so I started the podcast as a way to capture that. I interview artists, feature acoustic sets or live comedy sets intermittently throughout the interview, as well as comedy sketches that I write. It’s a mixture of chaos and hilarity, and it’s also been a great way to get me out of my shell. I mentioned earlier that I want people to walk away from my comedy show feeling like they had an experience and not just a show. The same applies to the podcast. I want the listeners to really have an experience with the artist I’m highlighting and be exposed to someone they may not have otherwise heard. And did I mention… it’s FREE?!

Jamie: I’ve tuned in quite a bit, it’s a great podcast. You mentioned technology, and one of the bad sides of technology is that just about any schmuck can throw together a podcast. There’s a lot of amateur garbage out there, which kind of puts a black mark on them a little. You can almost hear the silent “big deal” when people say “oh, you have a podcast?” But a handful of people actually know what they’re doing with them, and that’s certainly the case with yours. Definitely good stuff.  Ok, before I let you go, let’s plug that new comedy special some more. Casual Sext comes out October 18th. I’ve seen a few snippets and clips already and it looks to be another stellar and hilarious success. I’m looking forward to it. Tell us a little bit about that. You’ve gone the Louis CK/Jim Gaffigan route of cutting corporate America out of the fold and you took care of all production costs on your own to be able to offer it as a ridiculously low 5 dollar download… so tell us a little about that and a little about the album.

Michael: Yes! The special! I am SO excited to get this in everyone’s hands. And you’re right, I’m doing it the independent route for a $5 download on my personal website www.malonecomedy.com. I was really inspired by Louis CK’s release, because of the message behind it. He did it as a “Thank you” to his fans for all the support over the years. And, I want to do the same thing for my fan base. The last ten years have been amazing, and especially the last three, and I owe that to my fans and supporters. This is my way of giving back to them and making it as easy as possible to share with friends! The special is really fun. I deal with all the issues the important today, you know? How to handle sexting, pets, and ping pong balls with your partner. It was shot in the beautiful Strand Theatre in Indiana in front of a sold-out crowd of my biggest fans. The energy of the evening is apparent in the special, and I can’t wait to share it. Also, it’s chock full of new material and it’s less than most value meals at any fast food joint! Seriously, $5 bucks for an hour special is a great price.

Jamie: That it is, and I’m definitely looking forward to downloading it myself. I was a fan long before the friendship, so I always keep a close eye and ear on your stuff. Once again, thanks for taking the time to do the interview, and for all your support of Comedians For Cancer. I’m looking forward to having you perform with us in the future. Thanks man.

Michael: Thank you! I am really excited to join you guys, and I appreciate the opportunity to help out.

Jamie: There you have it folks… the very very funny Michael Malone. Click on his links here to check out his website and podcast, and follow him on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. Also get yourself Let’s Get Physical, and download Casual Sext on October 18th… trust me, you’ll be glad you did.

Cancer’s Not-so Secret Cure?

As the story goes, an unnamed pharmaceutical company spent seven years and millions of dollars researching the Graviola tree for its ability to treat and cure cancer. However, natural resources cannot be patented, so in the process of this research they worked frantically to recreate a synthetic version in order to patent it and not only get their seven year investment back, but then also reap the ridiculous rewards that would come with patenting a treatment and cure for cancer that didn’t involve painful radiation and chemotherapy. It’s been said that since they were unable to do that, they shelved the entire operation because publishing their findings would result in not only people being able to treat and cure cancer inexpensively on their own, but also allowing other pharmaceutical companies to possibly beat them to the punch in creating a synthetic version to be patented. In addition, other advocates of the tree and its fruit have stated that because these research and treatment centers receive millions of dollars annually, they pay experts to disparage and debunk its healing benefits in an effort to keep it under the rug because they stand to lose those millions of dollars each year if its revealed to the masses that the Graviola tree and its fruit can actually treat and cure cancer. The most common anti-argument is that it has yet to be tested extensively on actual humans.

So what exactly is the truth? Does this tree and its fruit actually treat and cure cancer? Are major pharmaceutical companies pushing a natural treatment and potential cure under the rug in order to keep millions of dollars rolling in and provide job security for millions of people in the field? Well, we’re not entirely certain, but let’s take a look at a few things and you can decide for yourself.

First, let’s learn a little about the tree and fruit itself from Farmer Ray. Don’t be fooled by the name, this is a very intelligent man and a very informative video:

Now let’s look at some information provided by the Architects of a New Dawn:

  • It’s been called a miracle tree. Indigenous people from the Amazon jungle have used the bark, leaves, roots, flowers, fruit, and seed from the Graviola tree for centuries to treat heart disease, asthma, liver problems, and arthritis. Scientists from North America learned of the legendary healing tree and, through dozens of in vitro tests, discovered its ability to kill malignant cells of 12 different types of cancer, including ovarian, colon, breast, prostate, lung, liver, cervical, lymphoma, and pancreatic cancer.
  • The most recent study, conducted at Catholic University of South Korea, revealed that two chemicals extracted from Graviola seeds showed “selective cytotoxicity comparable with Adriamycin” for breast and colon cancer cells. The chemicals targeted and killed malignant breast and colon cells in a test tube comparable to the commonly used chemotherapy drug Adriamycin.
  • Another study, published in the Journal of Natural Products, showed that Graviola is not only comparable to Adriamycin, but dramatically outperforms it in laboratory tests. Results showed that one chemical found in Graviola selectively killed colon cancer cells at “10,000 times the potency of Adriamycin.”
  • Perhaps the most significant result of the study cited above from the Catholic University of South Korea, and of each of the others we’ve found, is that Graviola was shown to selectively target the enemy, leaving all healthy, normal cells untouched. By comparison, chemotherapy indiscriminately seeks and destroys all actively reproducing cells, even normal hair and stomach cells. This is what causes such often-devastating side effects as hair loss and severe nausea. In this respect, Graviola looks to be a promising alternative or supplement to mainstream treatments.
  • In 1997, Purdue University published information with promising news that several of the Annonaceous acetogenins are not only effective in killing tumors that have proven resistant to anti-cancer agents, but also seem to have a special affinity for such resistant cells. In several interviews after this information was publicized, Purdue pharmacologist Dr. Jerry McLaughlin, the lead researcher in most of Purdue’s studies on the Annona chemicals, says cancer cells that survive chemotherapy may develop resistance to the agent originally used against them as well as to other, even unrelated, drugs.

Now let’s go back to Farmer Ray for an even more in depth look at the Graviola tree and its documented healing abilities:

And lastly, here’s some additional information provided by the International Human Rights Association:

  • The National Cancer Institute performed the first scientific research in 1976. The results showed that Graviola’s “leaves and stems were found effective in attacking and destroying malignant cells.” Inexplicably, the results were published in an internal report and never released to the public.
  • Since 1976, Graviola has proven to be an immensely potent cancer killer in 20 independent laboratory tests, yet no double-blind clinical trials–the typical benchmark mainstream doctors and journals use to judge a treatment’s value–were ever initiated.
  • A study published in the Journal of Natural Products, following a recent study conducted at Catholic University of South Korea stated that one chemical in Graviola was found to selectively kill colon cancer cells at “10,000 times the potency of (the commonly used chemotherapy drug) Adriamycin.”
  • The most significant part of the Catholic University of South Korea report is that Graviola was shown to selectively target cancer cells, leaving healthy cells untouched. Unlike chemotherapy, which indiscriminately targets all actively reproducing cells (such as stomach and hair cells), causing the often devastating side effects of nausea and hair loss in cancer patients.
  • A study at Purdue University recently found that leaves from the Graviola tree killed cancer cells among six human cell lines and were especially effective against prostate, pancreatic and lung cancers. (In a separate study, Purdue researchers showed that extracts from the Graviola leaves are extremely effective in isolating and killing lung cancer cells.)

As you can see, there’s quite a bit of very compelling information and evidence that suggests the Graviola tree is not only extremely beneficial to your body’s health, but could very well aide in the treatment and cure of numerous types of cancer. Has extensive testing on humans been done to provide scientific proof to back up these claims? Not exactly… but given the monetary ramifications of such testing, it’s easy to believe why that path may have been avoided up until now. However, numerous tests and studies show that it does in fact have a healing effect on various different bodily ailments and diseases, including cancer. Even without extensive testing on humans, I wouldn’t hesitate to seek alternative methods, and the Graviola tree is by far and away the most compelling alternative method I’ve come across in all my research. You can draw your own conclusions, but if you or anyone you know has cancer… it’s time to introduce yourself, or them, to the Graviola tree and its fruit.

Interview:

Jamie: Ok, I’m here with my man Oneshot BK Reppa, a fantastic hip-hop/rap artist who is just blowing people away with his music. If you already know him, you know exactly what I’m talking about… and if you don’t know him yet, you’re about to learn why you should. Thanks for being here and helping me kick off a great cause in style, Oneshot… I really appreciate that.

Oneshot: No Problem, I’m glad to be a part of something so positive. Thanks for having me.

Jamie: Absolutely. Let’s start out with the cause itself. What is it about cancer awareness that made you want to get involved? Was it just a general compassion, or have you had the misfortune of knowing someone who has gone through it?

Oneshot: Actually, my father is a cancer survivor. Cancer affects so many people and I have faith that there will be an eventual cure.

Jamie: Well we’re certainly doing our part to try to help the cause. Ok, so let’s go back to the beginning. Tell us about appearing on Kids Say The Darndest Things with Bill Cosby when you were 7. What was that like? Were you aware of the significance of being on television alongside one of the most well-known comedians in show business and nervous about it at all, or were you just a typical kid just rolling with whatever was thrown at you?

Oneshot: Well, Kids Say The Darndest things was the start of it all. My parents felt I had a nice look and wanted to get me into modeling and acting from a young age. My parents took me to an audition in my hometown in New York City to try out for the show. I was put in a room with thousands of other children my age and I was asked a bunch of questions. Months later, to my parents surprise, I was called back for the 2nd audition… which eventually led to me being on the show. It was amazing to meet Bill Cosby. He was very nice to me. At that age, I wasn’t really aware of the significance behind what was going on. It just seemed like something fun for me to do. Overall it was an amazing experience for me at such a young age.

Jamie: So how did you get yourself into making music then? At what point did you say to yourself, you know what… I’m pretty good at this shit, I think I can make it happen.

Oneshot: I started making music in High School for fun, but mainly to express all the pain I was going through. Life wasn’t easy for me, I went through a lot of pain. People treated me like crap, but I used their hate as motivation to make great music. At first, I was just making music… but when I began to put my heart, soul, and pain into the music, it took my career to the next level. As time went on I used social media sites like Myspace, Youtube, Facebook, and Twitter to take my career to another level. That’s when I began to realize I was really going somewhere with it.

Jamie: Yeah, follow up on that a little, because you became a monster on social media sites. First it was your Myspace getting over 20 million hits, and then you’ve had a lot of success with YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter too and seen videos like “Beat It Up” get over a million views. That’s a ridiculous amount of internet success right out of the gate. What was it like to see your stuff take off like it did?

Oneshot: It was truly amazing because I was the underdog in life and in the music industry. People always look down on the underdog, but my faith in God keeps me going in a positive direction, I used that positive energy to market myself on the internet. I put so much time and energy into marketing on those social sites, so I learned how to really work them to my advantage. I continue to use them regularly to market myself.

Jamie: Well it’s obviously working. Do you find it hard to keep up? I mean… you’re a pretty interactive guy with your fans and followers, and you’re sitting on almost a half million followers just on Twitter alone. Is it hard to keep up with it all and stay interactive as much as you do?

Oneshot: Not at all. We live in the mobile age, so I’m always tuned in to what’s going on. Even when I’m on my way to an event I’ll talk to my Twitter fans through my phone. I’m connected to the internet everywhere I go, so it makes staying connected with my fans easy on me. I use Twitter to update fans, so I’m always checking it. I try to stay very active on the social media sites.

Jamie: It’s good to see you staying in touch with the people who support your work. Not a lot of artists take the time to do that. Now obviously the music speaks for itself, but the internet is a very visual world and presentation is a big key as well. Tell us a little about your video producing and directing skills. What got you into that, and how did you become so good at it that millions of people keeping clicking on your work?

Oneshot: Well it all goes back to me being the underdog. When I started I didn’t have anyone to do my videos. Everyone was doing their own thing. I believed in myself, so I began to do my own videos. It took a lot of hard work to get really good at it, but now I’m doing amazing with it. Videos are the fun part for me. I love bringing my music to life in the form of a video. It’s like an art to me. Since I’m an independent artist, I’m in full control of my videos… and by directing them myself, I can do whatever I feel is best for them. I direct all my own videos now, and direct videos for others as well.

Jamie: You keep it pretty clean, which is hard to do in the rap game, so it’s one of the things I really admire about you. Tell us a little about that. Do you find it challenging at times to keep yourself out of the kind of bullshit that so many other artists in your position fall into so easily?

Oneshot: Thanks. Well, at first I did. I wanted to be like everyone else. I wanted to fit in. Now I couldn’t care less. Because the music I make is clean, I get a lot of sponsors and people wanting to work with me. Since I’m a Christian, I promote positive music and I have a lot more positive music coming. Some of the music I created in the past was a reflection of me trying to fit in. The music I’m creating now for this new album “Choosen” is a reflection of me not trying to fit in. The Choosen album is spelled with two O’s by design for artistic purposes. The album tells my life story. This album is very different from the music I put out in the past. It’s a reflection of my growth in life and walk with God. The music I created in the past represented me as a boy. My new music represents me as a grown man. So to fully answer that question, yeah… in the past it was hard not to fall into the trap of not being myself. Now it’s simple because I’m keeping God first in my life.

Jamie: That’s refreshing to hear man. So when you were getting started… who were your main influences? Who were the people that inspired you the most, or who did you emulate yourself after?

Oneshot: When I was getting started 50 Cent was very influential to me. His business sense was out of this world. I always knew I wanted to be a big business man. I always wanted my own label, company, and multiple businesses. Following his blueprint when I first got started really helped me out a lot. As far as emulating, I’ve always tried to be unique and create my own style. I try to be different and do things other artists aren’t doing.

Jamie: That’s the way to be… pave your own way. Ok, two-part question coming at you now. Who is the one person you’ve worked with or performed with that was the most fulfilling to you so far, and if you had your choice of anyone, who is the one person you’d like to work with or perform with in the future?

Oneshot: Wow… great question. I did a collab with LiL Chuckee signed to Lil Wayne’s record label Young Money. The song also features P. Diddy’s solo artist Donnie Klang, who was selected on MTV’s hit show Making the Band. Working with LiL Chuckee & Donnie Klang was the most fulfilling for me because me and LiL Chuckee became really close friends, and we are like brothers now. I don’t really think about working with anyone else. I stay focused on what I have to do, and right now that’s just doing my own thing and taking my brand to new levels.

Jamie: Ok, well… we’ll wrap this up with some plugs. A lot of people reading this will want to know what to look for from you. You’ve got a new CD coming out on October 5th, so tell us a little about that and anything else you’ve got coming up that people should keep an eye out for.

Oneshot: Yes! I’m excited about my album dropping October 5th called “Choosen.” In the past I made really fun music, but my life has not been a fun place. This album talks about my life for the first time, and shows everything I had to go through. The album still has the same commercial feel of all my other music, while delivering a more positive inspirational message. The Album has 15 songs, so I’m really giving my fans a lot of quality music while telling a great story. On top of that, I’m putting this album out for free for all my fans. I made a lot of money off many of my singles in the past, so I wanted to put out some free music for all of my fans. The album will be available on Datpiff, HotNewHipHop and many other websites on October 5th. Also be on the lookout for all of the videos. Since I do all of my own videos, I thought it would be dope to shoot a music video for every song on the album. That’s scary because there are 15 songs on the album, so it just goes to show how much of a workaholic I am.

Jamie: That’s how you do it man… just keep working. Well once again, thanks for being here and helping me kick off the Comedians For Cancer website with some hip-hop style. I’d wish you the best of luck, but with your talent and character, you’re not going to have to rely on luck very much. Pleasure speaking with you, as always.

Oneshot: Thanks for having me Jamie. I look forward to watching Comedians For Cancer grow and performing at some of your future shows. It’s a great cause and it’s going to be a huge success. SWAG

Jamie: There you have it folks. The new album “Choosen” is out October 5th, so make sure you check that and the upcoming videos out. And click his links here to follow Oneshot on Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook, as well as on his personal website. Don’t miss out on the rising talent.
