We had the good fortune of connecting with Amillion Mayfield and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Amillion, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
Evolution… evolving my brand organically was an important success factor for me. I didn’t transition or go from Amillion The Poet, to Best Selling Author to International Hip-Hop Artist. I continued to grow and offer different products to different demographics and maximize the potential of my voice.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Music and Poetry isn’t just what I do, it’s what I am! My Movement consists of my music, Poetry books and community activism. My goal is to inspire millions to be one in a million and not another statistic. I’m blessed to be a blessing. I really went through nightmares to make my dreams come true. I am the new owner of 1NA Radio Show with an iheart partnership and owner of 1NA Record Label. My proudest title still remains to be Aaliyah’s Father.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
The best food may be in my kitchen lol but if your visiting the city make sure you also taste these local businesses Mama G’s, Delicious Cravings, Achibachis, Tasty Crab, Hibachi, Carribian Cusine, McGinnis to name a few. Go out to Fraziers, Irish Mike’s, Golden Fleece, Oasis, The Boulevard, Sugar Factory, the beaches down south and up north The Queen and House of Laughs.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
S/O to My God, my daughter, my family, my team and my community!!!!
