Interviewer: *nods* I see. I sat down with Lisette yesterday and she told me about her experience playing as her character. In your experience in playing as Mike Delgado, what was it like having a love interest with the daughter of the King of Pop?
Kells: It was cool. She is a very talented young woman and damn, the daughter of one fuckin' legend. Shit.. She is lucky af. I love Lisette. She is like family to me. Everyone in Race Rage is. Shoutout to Chyna, Marco, Shoutout to Sheldon & Tyga. Allie and Amelia and most especially, the Rap God, Marshall.
Interviewer: You’re in Yours Truly Records, yes? I heard that your album Bloom released, what was it like working on it?

Interviewer: Wow! Really nice *smiles* As a father to Casie, what do you want her future to be like?
Kells: I dont care what she does unless she doesnt be doing bad things and being a criminal *chuckles a little* She loves to sing though and jam out to my songs.

Kells: What in the fuck is this? *takes one and laughs confused*
Interviewer: In this one, I’ll be asking you questions in helium and you’ll be answering in helium as well, are you ready for this?
Kells: Oh boy 😂😂 *chuckles and looks at the balloon* I guess. I mean I smoked bongs and hookah and shit before but helium 😂
Interviewer: *takes my balloon and inhales the helium, speaking in a squeaky voice* What songs are released and what songs are in the process? *most of the audiences are laughing*

Interviewer: What songs do you release recently and what songs are you currently working on?
Kells: I released Alpha Omega and 2 tracks from the Race Rage soundtrack, "At My Best" and "Conversations". I’m currently working on a collab with Keke Palmer called "A Little More"
Interviewer: Interesting. How does it go? Can you show us?
Kells: Which song?
Interviewer: A Little More with Keke Palmer.
Kells: *raps the first verse to little more in an acapella* I had a dream that the world changed
And for a minute there was no pain
Instead of presidents and old sayings
I heard lyrics from Kurt Cobain
Then I wake up to see the world’s ill
Oceans tainted from the oil spills
How many kids have these wars killed?
How many families can’t afford bills?
I wish that I could let the world know
That it’s okay to let the pain show
And even though times seem bad
It always rains before the rainbow.
Interviewer: *audience cheers and I clap for you* Amazing Kells!
Kells: Thank you, thank you *smiles*
Interviewer: In your opinion, what do you think of the other labels?
Kells: I think they kinda cocky and some artists are egotistical and disrespectful. I mean, you have to be humble at some point. Well yeah I understand being cocky sometimes but not too fuckin’ much, like dude.. Chill… And dont disrespecting artists making your shit all about you. That’s my opinion…
Interviewer: *nods* I see. What makes you say that?
Kells: I dont know *shrugs* They just dont give Yours Truly credit. We have so much potential, but they still dont give credit and give us a chance, like not even bother to actually listen to our music.
Interviewer: Ah *nods* How long have you been a rapper? And who inspired you to become one?
Kells: I grew up listening to Eminem. Been writing lyrics and playing the guitar. I was actually a huge fan of punk and metal rock first then rapping came in when I jammed out to Eminem, of course Tupac. I mean those two are legends. And what rapper doesnt at least look up to Pac. *smiles and chuckles a little*
Imterviewer: Tupac and Eminem are legendaries all right *smiles* *one of the female audiences said "I love you Kells!"*
Kells: *smiles* Aye love you too!
Interviewer: *one of the female audiences starts fangirling* Are you excited for Race Rage to come out soon?
Kells: Yes I am. *nods* The cast is great. Im family with all them.
Interviewer: And I’ve heard that you’re performing in the MTV Awards as well, yes? *audience cheers* What songs are you going to perform in this event?
Kells: I will be performing Alpha Omega and At My Best with Lisette *smiles* Its gonna be dope.
Interviewer: *audience keeps cheering* Is there anything you would like to say to new rappers who just started their career but they’re nervous to perform?
Kells: All I gotta say is keep your head up and dont let anybody bring you down.
Interviewer: That’s it for today’s interview! *audience cheers again* Thank you for being here, Mr. Kelly!
Kells: *waves* *peace* Check out Bloom!
