Mr. Cap: My form of Rap is mainly to appeal to pretty much everybody. So, I can do some Southern Rap, but then I can turn around and do something that’s more international. So it’s more versatility with how I do my songs. When the album comes out, you’ll see it go from “CAP International” to “Fa Money”… It’s gonna be all over the place.
The INDIEgator: So basically, they can’t put you in a box?
Mr. Cap: They can’t put me in a box. Yeah.
The INDIEgator: Ok, I gotcha. Cool.
Mr. Cap: Also, I want to mention some of the Artists that are featuring on the album, including some close friends of mine. K-Rino, Founder of the South Park Coalition; OG Point Blank, Wreckless Klan, SPC, SUC… I know ya’ll remember Lil Kano…
The INDIEgator: Oh yeah, you’ve got a lot of stars on the album. That’s nice.
Mr. Cap: I had to go drag Billy Cook out of the house and get him to come do something with me. I might surprise ya’ll with somebody, I’m not going say their name, but I might surprise ya’ll. It’s not said and done yet.
The INDIEgator: Of course! You can’t give us everything yet. Now you did mention the SPC. What is it like to be part of a coalition like that in Houston?
Mr. Cap: I mean, you know it’s an honor to be one of the original members of the SPC because that’s something that started way back in the mid 80’s. For me to get in during that time and see how it has grown since then, Man… It’s an honor to be respected as an SPC member as well as an Independent Artist. So that’s a real good feeling.
The INDIEgator: Alright CAP, in addition to rapping and traveling, you do a lot of speaking engagements at schools, talking to students. How does that feel and do you feel like you’ve impacted any of their lives?
Mr. Cap: Well when you go and talk to kids, you always hope to impact their lives. But as far as how it feels to do so, it’s an unexplainable feeling being chosen to go and speak to children at schools around the country. That to me is unbelievable, especially being in the position I’m in, I really don’t think I’ve made it to that level where I’m in demand like that. So once again, it’s just real humbling for me.
The INDIEgator: I see that you don’t take humility lightly. What makes you so humble? There are a lot of cocky people out here; I’ve seen them and they’re not even worth all the stuff they talk.
Mr. Cap: I think it’s my experience in the Music business and my experience in life. I’ve had a lot of success in certain things, but I’ve also had more failures in most things. I’ve been homeless before. So just that alone humbles me, knowing that you can be up here one day and the next day you can be down there. It takes nothing but 24 hours for your life to change for the good or the bad. I accept everything as a blessing, EVERYTHING! I’m grateful for everything. What you will hear in my music is me acknowledging God and acknowledging how grateful I am for whatever it is that I have.
The INDIEgator: One of the things that you do as a part of your whole being grateful is working with a charity. You give back?
Mr. Cap: I do a lot of giving back. I actually work with an organization out here in Houston called Social Good In Action (S.G.I.A.) and also 50% of all
my royalties from iTunes goes to the Fender Music Foundation (501(c)3 national music charity). I don’t make trillions of dollars or anything like that, but anything that I make, half of it goes towards them. They fund instruments and music supplies for young Music students around the country.
The INDIEgator: That’s a good way to keep a lot of kids out of trouble. They need an outlet.
Mr. Cap: Yeah.
The INDIEgator: That’s beautiful. Now we’ve featured Social Good In Action, Inc. before. What is your experience like with them?
Mr. Cap: Aw man, the experience with Social Good In Action and Martesha Haynes… It’s so humbling to be able to work with those guys because you can tell the passion to give is unmatched by anybody. They love to give. They love to help people and give to people that are less fortunate than we are. I told her that she can call me anytime, I’ll change my schedule, whatever I have to do. I even got my mom on board too. We came down and gave clothes and food to the homeless here in Houston.
That’s an experience because I’ve always wanted to do that kind of stuff. After all of my shows I always give a pair of shoes, usually the shoes that I’m wearing on the show, and the hat that I’m wearing on the show, I give it to the homeless person in that vicinity. I’ll go and find a homeless person that needs shoes and clothes and stuff and I’ll give them something off of my feet, my back, my head AND a couple of dollars. Everywhere I go in the country that’s what I do.
