Today we’d like to introduce you to Maurice Hamilton.
Hi Maurice, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
Well to start I love music especially music from my city I feel like Detroit have a vibe that everyone can connect with and it’s so much talent around just not enough exposure of the talent. Being on social media you don’t see many of Detroit artist on big platforms like “World Star” for example so I had an idea of starting exposure for us. “Detroit Rap News” A Platform for our city artist and over time the page grew even to people outside of Michigan.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Actually, it has been a smooth road building my platform. Along the way, I have gained a lot of support. I put a lot of time energy and effort into it. I stay consistent seven days out the week on Music and also the latest topics.
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I call myself a marketing genius and so far, the name suits me (lol) I work on brand marketing, making organic content, promoting music from the city, and shooting/editing videos.
That’s what set me apart from others you can one-stop shop with me basically. Not only can I shoot your video but I can also promote your video at the same time I look at that as a double win. I want to help people reach their goals I love to see when someone from my city wins, you never know who is watching I have some videos done by myself that have over 1 million views on my YouTube page.
Something I’m proud of was a goal I set for myself last year to do a compilation mixtape titled “Ear 2 the Streetz vol.1” with artist from all over the city I worked all summer putting the tape together I was excited to release it. Checking on the streams I got people over in Canada tuning in, even people playing my tape in Arizona since then I have worked on other tapes as well.
Can you share something surprising about yourself?
What a lot of people don’t know that not only do I run the blog myself but I also shoot a lot music videos. I’m the man behind Michigan Made Films.
