The Site, Radio And TV Show Always Putting The Spotlight On A Talented Individual Who Is Going Hard And Not Giving Up. Well Alan Pugach Barker Is Going Super Hard And Making The Best Out Of Life. Not Only Is He An A&R For Many New Producers That Worked With 50 Cent, Rick Ross, And Young Money (Just To Name A Few. He Also Is A Creative Model Director .Not Only Is Alan Well Connected In The Industry Musically But Fashionably As Well. He Is The Designer Bow Down Clothing. Alan Pugach Barker Is Definitely Mogul Minute Approved. His Models Have Been Featured On Magazines, WSHH, And Many Other Various Shoots And Videos (Featured Below) . His Clothing Has Been Worn By Many Celebs And Featured In Ozone Magazine And The Front Cover Of Gutta Magazine.

What Made You Want To Get Into The Entertainment Industry?

Grew Up Into It My Family Were Musicians. My Father Was In A Band In Buenos Aires, Argentina. My Mother Did Jingles For Commercials And Sings And So On. I Was Always Around Studio Equipment And I Love Business. Especially your Own, Nothings Better Then Being Your Own Boss And Working Your Own Way Up.

 How Has Your Life Changed Since You’ve Become An A& R?

Life’s More The Same These Days. You Don’t Really Have To Travel And Go Crazy To Make Ends Meet. Just more Contacts, More Business And Some Traveling To Take Care A Few Deals. Know What I Mean?

Do You Have A Fave Celeb To Work With?

I’d Like To Work With Dr. Dre & Eminem. I Know A Few People In That Small Circle But That Kind Of Stuff Never Jumps To Mind When I’m Doing Business But That Would Be Nice.

What Do You Love To Do In Your Free Time?

Chill, Kill And Fulfill A Thrill. 

How Did Your Clothing Line “Bow Down” Get Started And How Has It Progressed?

Just Did It For Promo, I Only Did It To Get People To Know That I Do Know These “Celebrities”. If They Don’t Know Who You Are, They Won’t Believe A Word You Say. So Sometimes You Have To Prove It To Them. I Got More To Come Than The Clothing Line, That’s For Sure.

What Do You Have Planned For The Future?

Working With The D.O.C., Had A Few Talks With Him Last Year & Recently, We’ll See What’s Up. Can’t Say The Name Of The Track Yet But I Got a Young Money Video Coming Out Soon, Sponsored By Me &You Guys Will See The Name Also A Short Dawg Video With Some Of The Promo Shirts And What Not. Doing Some Music Work With Lola Monroe, Possibly For Her Single, We’ll See And So On.

What’s The Hardest Thing About Being An A&R?

I Suppose What’s Hard Is Getting The  Connects And Making Business Happen, Got To Have A Relationship , Their Attention, Someone To Believe In You But If You Have A lot Of Money Its Easier For You But You Still Need The Right Vision And Understanding Of The Business, Can’t Be  Completely Blank on It , Not Even Money Will Let You Work With That Sometimes..

7. What Have You Produced?

More Executively Produced, Than Anything Right Now. “My” Tracks Will Be On For The Future Right Now I’m Working  With Producers That Have Worked With Young Money , Rick  Ross, Meel Mill, Cashis , Royce Da 5’9” ( With Eminem) Etc. the Recent Track Besides The Current Ones In The Making , Was Kid Ink- “ Hold It Downn” Off  That Daydreamer Mixtape Hosted By Dj Ill Will. They Are Going To Make 5 More Videos Off That Mixtape As Well, One Of Them Might Be Ours.

Advice To Artist That Want To Be In The Industry?

Like Anything Else, Make Connects, Learn How To Market Yourself, Get Yourself Features, etc. Learn The Business, In The End Its Not About The Music & Talent Its About Business   10% Talent, %90 Business And Sometimes Money Talks .Most People I See Have Studios , Equipment ,They Have Many Tracks But That’s Where It Ends. If Your Serious About It Then, Learn the Business And Get Things Going Otherwise It’s Just For Fun.

These artists find joy in capturing crowds and giving the masses a level of creativity that most will find hard to forget. Marcus ‘Keeb’ Marquez is one of those rare artists. The man, that most people recognize by his combat boot and designer jacket attire is referred to as the ‘Diddy’ of Chicago.

Interview With The One Man Army Dee 1

Strong! Powerful! A Leader! And Definitely A Blessing To Music Are A Few Things That Come To Mind When You Hear The Artist Dee-1. The New Orleans , Louisiana Native Is Using His Voice To Inspire And Motivate People Everywhere. I Think Dee-1 Is Extraordinarily Unique, Creative , And Setting Himself Apart From Previous Music Artists In The Industry. With The Release Of Two Mixtapes “I Hope They Hear Me Volume 1 & 2” He Has Gained Plenty Of Supports. With Just A Pen, A Pad , And Himself He Has Created A Full Force Of Lyrics That You Can Relate To As Well As Take To The Heart. Earlier Today I Interviewed The 504 Lyricist And One Man Army “Dee-1”.

What Does Music Mean To You?
Music is a form of self expression to me . I’m able To free my thoughts that were caged up. As an artist your music may help a fan release their thoughts or emotions that were caged up.
If You could have met any person In history who would It be and why?
I would have wanted To meet Malcolm X closer to the end Of his life because I’d have questions regarding his style and leadership . I’d also would’ve liked to meet Tupac.

How Did It Feel To See “One Man Army” Video On TV?
The One many Army song and video means so much to me . It’s my superhero theme music .                                                                                                            Just to see it get so popular on the internet and then make it to MTV                                                                                                                                                                   It let me know that people want that realness.I do real music regardless of the people who say I should do a strip or club song .

Are You On Tour ?
Yes. The tour is called “Grind &Hustle” Tour. So far I’ve been in Vancouver, Cali And Seattle.                          But you can go to Dee1Music.Com For All The Tour Dates And cities.

What Is “One Man Army”?
A One Man Or One Woman Army Is state of mind that people should live with . I like To call It Mission Vision. Everyone can have A mission for their own life and purpose. You need to have a strong team ,          be self motivated And grind. Dreams start and end with me. You can’t let the distractions of the TV,              internet, radio, or relationships mess up your goals and dreams. Don’t get distracted from your purpose.  True happiness comes From finding your purpose .

You Were A Teacher Correct?
I taught middle school in 08 And 09. I bonded with the students and I was able to relate and talk To them.

What Do You Want The Tristate To Know About You?
I want them To know that my goal is to make music that can inspire and entertain. I want my audience to be better people after they hear my music. The main thing I want the people to know is that the movement is going to go as far as you take it. People try to ignore positive movements and rather show love to negative ones. As for the people that show love and support positivity will make others support it as well. Just follow me on Twitter @Dee-1 , I want to be revolutionary pick up where Malcolm X and Tupac left off in my own way.
