Damon Campbell Interviews Mod Sun

“This is the best fucking interview I’ve ever done,” proclaimed Mod Sun during our sit-down at The Crofoot in Pontiac, Michigan. But rather than take him by surprise, it instead lived up to his expectations after he and his tourmates, Pat Brown and The Come Up, spent some of their downtime on the road indulging in previous interviews of mine—which, needless to say, I was astonished to hear.

“This is, like I told you previously, going to be the greatest interview that’s ever happened,” prophesied the drummer-turned Hippy-Hop pioneer at the start of our conversation. During which, he gave me an advance copy of his first book Did I Ever Wake Up?, as we went on to discuss a high school friend introducing him to The Secret—which he credits for changing his life—passing joints to the Wu-Tang Clan at his first hip-hop gig, and more. “You already know probably fuckin’ half the shit in there,” he joked, before kindly reemphasizing his satisfaction with our one-on-one.

“Yo, best interview I’ve ever done. Seriously, this is the mothafuckin’ man right here. You are supporting good people by watching this. And I’m gonna spread the hell out of this video, OK? This is the tell-all. Label it that: The Mod Sun Tell-All Interview.”

Mod Sun Playing Piano Backstage

If you happened to watch my interviews with Honey Cocaine and DJ Carisma, you may have noticed a graffitied piano behind us. While backstage prior to his performance at The Crofoot in Pontiac, Michigan, Mod Sun decided to put this very same piano to use. Thankfully, along with singer-songwriter Pat Brown, who DJ’s for the drummer-turned-Hippy Hop pioneer, I was on hand to capture exclusive footage of this rare moment in music.

Damon Campbell Interviews Honey Cocaine

While backstage during the “Group Hug” tour stop at The Crofoot in Pontiac, Michigan, I sat down for an exclusive interview with Tyga’s Canadian protégée Honey Cocaine, who seemed floored by our entire conversation.

“What the fuck!? Honestly, how do you know this shit?” inquired the First Queen of Last Kings, as we discussed keeping a McDonald’s cup in her locker for free drinks after school, her first time reading pornography, and much, much more.

Damon Campbell Interviews DJ Carisma

“OK, we got a cookie monster! Damon’s a cookie monster!”

While backstage during the “Group Hug” tour stop at The Crofoot in Pontiac, Michigan, I sat down for an exclusive interview with Honey Cocaine’s official DJ, DJ Carisma of Power 106 Los Angeles.

“That was definitely one of the best interviews I’ve ever had,” praised the Young California ambassador, as we discussed overcoming the odds placed against her by a sexist co-worker at the House of Blues, makeup strengthening the bond between she and her “Cookie Jar” co-host Abby De La Rosa, her ability to whip up a mean salmon and crab dinner, and more.

Damon Campbell Interviews Chippy Nonstop

After recovering from a bloody nose, which she suffered while stage diving, Bay Area rapper Chippy Nonstop and I sat down for an exclusive backstage interview during the “Group Hug” tour stop at The Crofoot in Pontiac, MI.

“Wait, how do you know that?” asked the Kreayshawn affiliate, as we discussed her being on the receiving end of an eighth grade prank, getting mugged in Oakland on several occasions, and the undeniable influence of her mother’s past as a Bollywood dance instructor.

Notorious for getting kicked out of clubs, as her song “Kicked Out Da Club” indicates, Chippy also described a time when she was thrown out of a Flosstradamus show at the same time as members of the A$AP Mob.
