At 4 :00 AM I Was Excited To Talk With The Star ! Mogul To Mogul I Was Very Interested In What He Had To Say About His  New Album And Get To Know The Man Behind The Beautiful Smile, Action Packed Movies, And Soulful/R&B Songs.

1.How Are You Going To Celebrate Your Thanksgiving?

Actually , I Celebrated Thanksgiving On The 20th, It Was A “Pre -Thanksgiving”. My Best Friends, Their Wives And Children Came Over . It Was A Good Time , I Might Have To Do A Part Two.

2.” Open Invitation” Is A Interesting Title , For Such A Great Album What Are You Inviting Your Fans And Supporters To Do ?

I’m Inviting Them To Hear My Heart On The Mic. I Put Everything Into The Album .There Is No Politics, No Label Drama, No A&R . I Just Want My Open Invitation To Be Embraced .

3.In 2000 When You Won Your First AMA For Fave New R&B/Soul Artist? What Was The First Thing You Thought Of?

I Couldn’t Believe  I Won. I Couldn’t Believe They Called My Name.I Was Very Honored And Greatful To Be Recognized By The AMA’s And My Fans .

4.Looking Back On Your Life From Now To The 1995 Coca-Cola Commercial , What Has Been Your Greatest Experience ?

You Know I Have To Many To Just Say One , I Can Just Say That For Me , Its Been Beyond Amazing Being Able To Travel .To Meet As Many People As I Have .I’ve Know Everybody From  Winnie Mandela To Quincy Jones, Will Smith To Oprah. I’ve Been Able To Meet Some Of The Most Powerful And Significant People In History. I Think I’ve Met Everybody But Martin Luther King Himself ( Laughs) . Its A Blessing In Itself That This Gift That God Has Gave Me To Act And Sing And Everything Else Has Put Me In The Presence Of Some Of The Most Powerful People In The World  Its Just Things Like That I Will Never Take For Granted.

5. I Also Wanted To Commend You On Starting The Watts Foundation , What Was Your Motive For Starting That And Whats Your Ultimate Goal?

My Motivation Was When I Was In The Hood Every Single Day For 17 , 18 Years, I Just Wished That There Were Certain Things That We Had Access To And Certain Programs That Were Available. So With My Watts Foundation I’m Hoping  To Initiate These Things.I Think A Lot Of People Forget About The Struggles And Issue And Things That Are Going On In The Hood Once You Have An Opportunity To Leave And Go Get Your Career Off The Ground.However These Issues Still Exist So Thats What Its Been About For Me.

6.When You Wrote How To Get Out Of Your Own Way Who Did You Have In Mind?

The Fans , Supporters, Book Readers, The People Into Self Help Books And Not Into Self Help Books At All.Its Like People Are More Inspired By Your Walk In Success. 1 Billion 700 Million Dollars In The Box Office Receipts , Its One Thing To Throw That Number Out There, Wow! Congratulations. But Its Another Thing To Give People Insight And Info On How One Day They Can One Day Be Apart Of A Huge Franchise Or A Movie. Its Very Important To Pay It Forward To Give People Insight And Information On How To Get To The Next Level In Their Life And Career, And That Is Why I Wrote It.

7. From One Mogul To Another Mr.Gibson You Are Doing Your Thing! We Know Your Brand Is Sexy And A Lot Of Celebrities Have Come Out With Colognes Are You Considering Releasing One? Not Right Now. I Tend To Things Different . I’m A Bit Of A Weirdo In My Own Way. Its A Bit Of Feeling.I’m Very Obedient .When God Says Do This .. I Say Okay And Jump Right On It.So I don’t Follow Trends And What Everybody Is Singing And How They’re Singing It Or What They’re Wearing In Their Videos. This Is What I’m Doing ! How I’m Doing It And When I’m Doing It !Hopefully , I’ll Find And Audience With Whatever I’m Doing So That’s Always The Hope.

8.What Is Your Advice That You Would Give To Others About Following Their Dreams?

The Best Advice I Could People Is Getting To The Top Of Your Career Isn’t Necessarily Just About Your Gifts And Talents .Its About Your Mentality, Your Surroundings And How Bad You Want It.So Many People Wake Up Everyday Saying They Want To Do This Or That But They’re Not Doing S### To Get To The Next Level.It’s Like Alright I Hear You But What Are You Doing?If You Want To Get To The Next Level In Your Career , Why Are Those Your Friends?You Don’t Even Like Your Friends , So Why Are They There?Its Like Your Riding Around Talking  Mess About  Your Own Friends Yet They’re Still There. Are You Lonely ? Are You Desperate To Have People Around You Because Their Clearly Not Adding To Your Life & Career.I Think So Many People Think  That Because You Can Sing  , Your Going To Get To The Top Of The Game.No! Its About The Way You Think And Your Surroundings. It’s About The People Directly Involved In Your Life And Career, Can Really Kill Your Career Single Handedly.There’s People Out Here That Sing, Look And Can Act Way Better Than Me But They Will Never Get Anything Off The Ground Because They Are Surrounded By Horrible People.

1.What Made You Want To Become A Music Artist?
I Just Always Loved Music. I Liked Being In Front Of People And Amazing Them With My Talent. Music Has Always Been There For Me. I Don’t Really Have A Personality To Work A Regular 9-5 I’m So Creative And I Express That Through My Music And I Just Want To Share That With The World Music Is Something That I Always Loved To  Listen To And When I Discovered My Ability To Write And Perform It Was A Wrap.From There, I Knew I Wanted To Take Being A Music Artist Serious And I Went From There.

2. Do You Have A Favorite Candy?
Reese Pieces & Hersheys With Almonds Lol!

3.When Your Not Recording What Do You Like To Do?
When I’m Not Recording I Love Love Love Chilling With A Fluffy Blanket A Large Pizza And A Good Movie. I Love Shopping! When I’m Not In The Studio, And Learning New Things, I’ll Read Or Watch The History Or Discovery Channel. I Want To Gain All The Knowledge I Can Because The More Knowledge You Have The More You Can Write/Rap & Sing About.

4.What Does Your Music Mostly Talk About?My Music Mostly Talks About Love, Past Experiences With It Whether It Be Good Or Bad, And Also About Living And Enjoying Life .

5. For People Who Do Not Know You What Do You Want Them To Know? I Want Them To Know I’m One Of The Nicest , Most Humble People They Will Ever Come Across.In Some Of My Music I May Come Off Cocky But I’m Not At All . I Get Compliments On How Humble I Am All The Time. It Makes My Day Because I Strive Hard To Stay Down To Earth.

6.What Other Female Artist Influence You? Lauryn Hill, Queen Latifah, Remy Ma. Not just Rappers Either,Jane Jackson, Beyonce and Brittany Spears Have Also Influence Me Alot Over The Years.

7.If You Could Change Anything About The Music Industry What Would You Change?
 I Would Change How Most Of The Males Degrade Females In Their Music.It Makes These Guys Out Here Feel Like They Can Talk To Us And Treat Us Any Kind Of Way.They Have These Guys Out Here Thinking All You Need Is Have “Swagg” To Get By. Or That You Need “Money”, “A Benz”, A “Redbone”, Or A Different Girl Everyday To Be Cool. I Would Also Change  The Fact That When Artist Get Signed The Majority Of The Time They Are Limited In A Way  To Do What The Label Wants The To Do, Wear, And what To Make Music About.We Need To Go Back To The Old Days When Artists Were In Control.  

8. Your First Mixtape , Could You Explain The Concept For It? I Recorded My First Mixtape When I Was 15. It Was Called “Warning Volume 1” And Basically Every Song On There Went Hard Bar For Bar. I Was “Warning” Rappers And Hip Hop overs I Was Coming ,I Was Breaking On The Scene So Watch Out For Me.I Wanted Them To Be Warned Like “Don’t let My Age And Baby Face Fool You.I’m A Beast At This Rap Ish Lol.

She’s Working Real Hard And Is Definitely A Dream Chaser, So Stay Tuned For The Exclusive Interview With The Mogul Minute And Lil Benji .

1.What Does Music Mean To You ?
In My Opinion , Music Is My Life. If Music Didn’t Exist Some People Would Really Go Crazy, Because They Wouldn’t Be Able To Express Their Feelings Through Music. I Know I Would.

2.Who Are Some Of The Other Artist You Look Up To?
    Some Artists I Look Up To Are Eminem, Tupac, Mc Lyte. I Actually Think My Flow Is Inspired By These Three Individuals.
3What Are Your Plans For The Future?
    My Plans For The Future Is To Go To College & Learn More About The Business Part Of Music.Its Important Because Theres Way More Fields In The Industry Than Just Being A Rapper Or Singer.So 20 Years From Now , I Plan On Being A Very Successful Music Executive.
4.Out Of Your Songs That You’ve Recorded Which One Means Alot To You?
    All Of My Songs Actually Have A Special Place In My Heart. But The One That Means The Most Is My Dreamchasers Freestyle Because It Wasn’t Just A Freestyle, It Was A Prelude To My Story.
5. You Have A Dope Stye Do You Have A Fave Brand Of Clothes?
     No , Honestly I Don’t Have A Favorite Brand. Clothing Wise You Can Say I Like  To Be Urban But Still Maintain To Stay Comfortable In What I’m Wearing.
6. Are There Any Artist You Want To Collab With In The City?
    Theres Not Many , But They Would Have To Be Young Savage , Yazz , Lean Bean , Lee Mazin , Young Sam , & Sincerely Tahj.
7.Why Did You Pick The Name Benji 
?

Its Funny , Cause I Didn’t Pick That Name – One Of My Friends Did. It Started As A Nickname In School Cause My Real Name Is Benjamina But Then They Started Calling Me Benji So I Took It And Ran With It.
