Why did you pick the name
Blaqk Dymn?
“Blaqk” as in Afro American. The “q” represents
queens and the “k” represents kings. So BLAQK
queens and kings. The “dymn”
is because no matter how
much pressure you put us
under, we still shine. That’s
the attitude I give and receive.
If I can instill a bit of hope in
anyone with my gift, we can
all shine!
Who are the artists currently on your record label?
Princere has the full package: image, style, swag, and
the music is not only good but
very marketable as well — a
real force to be reckoned with.
Mz.Kina is reppin’ for the
Polynesian women. She’s a
very special talent with a voice
everyone falls in love with the
first time they hear her. And
last but not least is the HottHeadz, a group out of Rich-

mond, California that resides
here in Utah and are some of
the hardest streetlife flow out
there right now.
What services do you provide for your artists?
I provide them with more
than one way to do things
and more avenues. We not
only do things locally, we
do things on a state-to-state
level where we are exposed to
more than just our local scene
but abroad as well! Being in
contact with other artists,
producers, studios, managers,
publicists, promoters, venues
and industry people is a great
springboard for all artists. I’m
happy to be blessed to be able
to do that for my artists and
close affiliates!
What do you wish more
people knew about how to
produce a good song?

It’s in your soul. You have to
really feel and kinda fall into
the track, and be honest when
you really don’t feel it. Honest
work and not just “Oh, he or
she’s my friend so yeah, it’s
good.” No, sometimes it takes
brutal honesty to get an artist
to understand how much it
means to be honest in the
studio, and get a track where it
needs to be.
Of all the live performances
you’ve given as a musician,
which was your favorite,
and why?
Opening for Slick Rick, by
far. The crowd response to
the show was euphoria and to
top it off I hung out with “The
Ruler” for the longest 30 minutes of my life! Very humble
and down-to-earth brotha.

did you find fulfilling about
it?
I think the Summer Jam
’06 Summer Jam After Party,
which I put together with
U92’s Pat Clark and good
friend Ryan Brown. We had
all of Bone Thugs, Fat Joe,
Oowee, NB Ridaz and more.
What can we expect at
“Let’s Get Stewie”?
It will include some great
talent: Princere, Mz.Kina,
New Talent Entertainment,
Jen, Dymnamo and Ill Flo and
much more. We are trying to
give everybody something
they want. You know, “heat
it up, cool it down, heat it up,
cool it down.” It’ll be an awesome show!
