HALO ROCKZ: First and foremost thank you for taking the time out for Support the Hustle...
Please introduce yourself for the few who may not have heard of “Tone C Da Mayor”
TONE C: The pleasure is all mine! I Thanks for Having me! For those who don’t know me....I go by the name of Tone C. Da Mayor, Mr. G.T.P, Get the Pu**y, Get the Paper! Lol... I’m also the unofficial Mayor Of Miramar but will be officially running for office soon!
HALO ROCKZ: Let’s hear it, Tell us about your name?
TONE C: My name Actually has a meaning to it! “T.O.N.E.” Means “Trendsetter Of The New Era” & the C is for Comcast because I’m on demand! Hahaha.... I just added on the Mayor due to how I move and contribute to the city! I feel like I really run the city...
HALO ROCKZ: It’s difficult for independent artists; especially support wise. Do you feel you have that support whether it’s from family, friends, or even social media shares or likes?
TONE C: Not at all! In all honesty, a lot of people are threatened and intimidated by me so they refuse to support or open doors for me.... Also, People follow what’s popular, not what’s real! & if we’re talking numbers, let me break this down....For example, Let’s say I have 5k fiends on Facebook and 5k followers on IG, that would make 10k supporters right? Which means I should be getting 5k likes and shares on each site and 5k downloads from each As well but that’s not the case.People down here in our market act like you’re a groupie if you support! As of lately I’ve been steering away from worrying about who doesn’t support and just focus on those who do!
HALO ROCKZ: What is your most influential creation? #track
TONE C: I would definitely have to say “W.T.F.W.Y.” , which is the last song on my album! I wrote that when I was in a very dark place mentally and emotionally but it connected with a lot of people! I always get great feedback from that record! That’s one of the realest songs I ever wrote!
HALO ROCKZ: Do you consider yourself an asset to the music industry? Do tell...
TONE C: Of course!!! I’m definitely not a liability! Lol... Not only am I a bilingual Artist & Songwriter, I also own my own music management company called “Mayor Management” where we develop talent, coordinate events, concerts and handle everything else industry related. I got my hands in all pots! I have much more projects to speak on but I’ll let those unfold in front on your eyes....
HALO ROCKZ: I personally feel you are more then a rapper but a creator, what other hats do you wear?
TONE C: Haha indeed. I do it all.... Artist, Songwriter, Manager, Mogul, Public Figure & Future Mayor! To keep it short and sweet, I’m just a playmaker! I make things happen! I got the Midas hand, whatever I touch turns into gold....
HALO ROCKZ: What other genre of music do you listen to?
TONE C: Being that my background is Panamanian & Jamaican, I vibe reggaeton & reggae heavy...
I listen to Hip-Hop, Pop and Alternative music here and there though...
HALO ROCKZ: Let’s talk about “Miramar We Live” , How did that come into play?
TONE C: Haaaaa.. Good question.. Miramar We Live started as an idea on social media and it has turn into one of the biggest platforms in the City. Being the Mayor, you have to be with the people and for the people so I wanted to create something that the whole city can enjoy. I only had plans to do 1 Miramar We Live but it has now turned into an annual concert that showcases Artists from Miramar and the surrounding areas! This year marks our 3rd installment of the concert series. All powered by my management company Mayor Management.
HALO ROCKZ: Is it going as well as you planned?
TONE C: It is ! Every year we get bigger and better! By the grace of god! The only problem I have is finding a venue in Miramar but the “real” Mayor and I are working on that as we speak.... The past 2 events have been held in Hollywood but I’m trying my hardest to get the clearance to Rock our in the city.
HALO ROCKZ: How did it feel to meet the Mayor of Miramar and to have him actually call you The Mayor?
TONE C: Super Dope! One of the greatest experiences ever! Who else can say that the Mayor of their city who is running for President of the United States calls them Mayor? lol ... That’s history!!! We’re good friends now too so it’s Litt! Lol
HALO ROCKZ: What was your most memorable performance?
TONE C: My most memorable performance would have to be performing at the Martin Luther King festival in Miramar. I was booked by the City of Miramar to perform in front of the city so that was super dope for me and heartfelt for me! Plus I got paid... Talk about a win win! Lol...
