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

Hi M, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
Risks in my opinion, are made everyday, depending on how you look at it. Wether it is feeling unsure about a certain situation, wether it is feeling very confident or feeling like it is not the best idea. That is the beautiful thing about life, what ever way taking a risk goes, you as a person learn from mistakes/successes and always have an opportunity to redeem yourself. In my case, my risk worked out perfectly fine. I dropped out only attending a couple weeks of college. I was never really into school, I felt like i was never good at school, my ADHD would never let me focus and be the good kid with good grades. When I eventually got to Middle School, thats when I picked up my first ever laptop, of course for school. I ended up eventually downloading FL Studio. I instantly said to myself, Im doing this for the rest of my life. Risks have made me a better person overall. all the chances I took, wether it was choosing FL Studio over getting homework done, ditching school to make beats, barley attending any of my senior year, never paying attention in school, it all worked out eventually.

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.
I have recorded and engineered songs like “Jersey” by Baby Smoove which has done over 700,000 views on YouTube, Unreleased Uno The Activist, A project with Baby Yungin, and Lil Wop just to name. a few. I feel like what sets me apart from other professionals in my industry is the genuine passion and love I have for. music. I remember being 17 in my room, begging for success in the music industry, I wanted it so bad like nobody else. I had no connections, I had nobody to contact, not one single person. I remember I always had a tendency to message Artists/DJs on Facebook back in 2012 (I was about 11) I actually remember messaging Dj Tonic which is now Deorro. Building connections to me wether its on social media, or in the real world is one of my largest values. A lesson that I learned is with how advanced technology is that sky is the limit. It is crazy to me how easily you can get in contact with someone you used to listen to/admire since you were a kid. I would just want everyone to know to just follow your passion, live your own life, do what you want, make the decisions you want, at the end of the day you control your own life so live it to the fullest and do what you love.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
One of the places I would bring company around would definitely be Clubhouse Studios. Clubhouse is a place to me like home, Its a studio that used to be owned by Tricky Stewart which had notable artists like Prince, Beyonce, Ne-Yo, and The Dream just to name a few, The views, environment and instruments just make it feel like home.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to give a special shoutout to Alex Loyalty. For giving me endless opportunities and simply believing me. Alex has an amazing work ethic and has made many things possible, not only that but has inspired many including me. In my humble opinion I believe he definitely deserves more recognition as a CEO, Manager, and overall person. Thank you Alex.
