Mr. Brite is the Prez of HMB Multimedia First Hip Hop Sensation. While on the come up he has been working alongside HMB aka (Hand Made Beats) for some time now. This has been a great aspect of his career. From the studio to the stage, he knows how to “build the energy up” (in my mr. brite voice). While performing Mr. Brite owns the stage and crowd. He has performed his Summertime remix at The Elegant Hoodness Musical Park Tour and showcase at club Pyramid, hosted by A.D. the General. He’s performed at the Laugh Lounge as well. Very much a diverse artist as expressed below. Mr. Brite has a mixtape coming soon called “Thugz Passion”, so be on the look out. Let’s take a moment and find out more.
SPECIALGIFT: Who is Mr. Brite?
MR. BRITE: Is the new kid on the block with that fire for the people . I am a diverse artist with a old school feel down loaded and upgraded to a new sound.
SPECIALGIFT: Polish us up on “Thugz Passion”.
MR. BRITE: A Thugz Passion is a mixture of street fight music, club bangers and of course for my ladies Thug love.
SPECIALGIFT: You’ve performed at Elegant Hoodness several times. Was your experience diverse each time? Elaborate please.
MR. BRITE: Yes I have performed several times at Elegant Hoodness Music Program and each time it taught me more about how to control a crowd (meaning building a better stage show). I also learned how to network with other artist as well as other promoters.
SPECIALGIFT: Tell us about your newest video “Blackout”. Is that your first video? Enlighten us on the process of it.
MR. BRITE: First of all I am so proud of this video because of how tedious my director Brandonsvision.com and I worked on this video for three months. We were shooting scenes during the "Irene hurricane" and it was all worth it .It was a lot of hard work and in the same sentence a bunch of fun.
SPECIALGIFT: What’s up next for you, Mr Brite? Tell us something that would be new for us all, something we can look forward to.
MR. BRITE: Well in the near future I have a mixtape about to be released called Thugz Passion. Coming soon to Mixtape factory. I also will be performing at the Laugh Lounge Nov 1, 2011. Also working with my team mates as well as artist Gorgeous and Mottz Gigante of HMB.

Jaeden Zoe definitely has that je ne se pas affect going on for herself. She is a native of California and a resident of Brooklyn N.Y.. When I spoke to he manager "Eddie Rosa" about evolving her in The Elegant Hoodness Musical Program my monthly showcase held at Club Pyramid in the L.E.S. (downtown Manhattan). I was automatically pleased by her writing ability and catchy pop hooks. Her look and sound was a bit different than the average competitor in our arena. But when I listen to her single entitled “Hello” I knew that the Elegant Hoodness audience and supporters would enjoy my new diamond in the rough finding. Dec 21, 2011 four days before Christmas, JAEDEN ZOE tore the house down and placed 3rd in the competition. Giving you the reader now the opportunity to know her story and fall in love with her music. I caught up with JAEDEN after the competition and discussed everything from being in Love, California and the art of song writing. I present to you future pop sensation “JAEDEN ZOE”.
A.D. THE GENERAL: How long have you been writing and composing your own music?
JAEDEN ZOE: I've been composing my own music since the age of six. That's
when I knew I had the drive for it.
A.D. THE GENERAL: So you’re originally from California? Born & raised? Is that where you acquired your sound?
JAEDEN ZOE: Yes, Im originally from california born and raise in Santa Monica but i wouldn't say I developed my sound from my environment because I was inspired by artist like I Blame Coco, One Republic and others.
A.D. THE GENERAL: Some of your lyrics talk about being in love. Is being in love an inspiration for your song writing?
JAEDEN ZOE: Yes, I would say its an inspiration because love is a very rare thing to find in a friendship, with a family member or in a relationship its a healthy form of life that some people aren't use to and hopefully through my music they can feel that feeling.
A.D. THE GENERAL: You have won 3rd place at the Elegant Hoodness Musical Program. How did you enjoy the program and would you recommend the program to another artist?
JAEDEN ZOE: I'm very thankful that I had an opportunity to come out and perform, and winning 3rd place is an honor to me. I believe any inspired artist with a passion for music will highly appreciate this offer and I would recommend upcoming music artist to take a chance to win.
A.D. THE GENERAL: Who are some of the artists that have influenced you to pursue a career in music?
JAEDEN ZOE: The artist that influenced my career when i was younger was Mariah Carey because she have this distinctive sound that i was interested in.
A.D. THE GENERAL: Where do you see yourself in a year?
JAEDEN ZOE: I see myself going pretty far with my music and with the new year motivating the hype. I believe i'll be the Artist of 2012.
A.D. THE GENERAL: Where can our readers listen and download your music?
