Exclusive: Pre-fight interview with Mayweather Co-Trainer Nate Jones

Former Olympian and Heavyweight Champion boxer Nate Jones, is as ingrained in boxing history as some of his more famous compatriots from the fight game. Jones currently holds the distinction of being the only native born Chicago boxer to ever medal in the history of the Olympic Games. During the 1996 Atlanta games, Jones earned Bronze after defeating Fola Okesola of Great Britain and Jiang Tao of China, only to have his progress stopped via a debatable split decision in favor of Canada’s David Defiagbon. Prior to the Olympics, Jones was the National Golden Gloves Heavyweight Champion in 1994 and 1995. Currently Jones is an assistant trainer for Floyd Mayweather, Jr.

D'NME - Can't Nobody Do It My Way

Canada’s rising hip hop star D’NME and his music are catching fire throughout the digital music world. His newest single, “Can’t Nobody Do It My Way,” achieved nearly 1 million views on YouTube in less than a week and is materializing on high power urban music sites like StarforceHipHop.com and ThatCrack.com while gaining feature articles with digital magazine outlets like The Hype Magazine and Hood Stars Magazine. In essence, we could be seeing the next musical phenomenon to sweep the digital music industry.

An example of D’NME’s recent successes with his musical movement is , he and G Unit member Lloyd Banks, one of the biggest mixtape rappers in history, both celebrated achieving gold certification for recent projects on DatPiff.com , a popular mixtape site. D’NME’s golden goose was entitled “Guns & Roses” and received rave reviews by some of the top name DJs in the industry like DJ Smallz and DJ Green Lantern.

“Can’t Nobody Do It My Way,” is a divergence from the standard hip hop fare of today. Combining rock and pop music influences within the track, and the signature D’NME rapid lyrical delivery, has created what is proving to be a well received offering from Toronto’s “next to blow” hip hop star.

D’NME recently covered The Hype Magazine and in his interview, he describes his style:

My style changes depending on the record. Overall, I’d say I have a pretty dark sound, but if the record is lighter in regard to the beat I’m rapping on, the content is darker and edgier. My flow can be very rapid and in your face but overall, my style is hip hop. Even if I make a pop record, the way I rap and stay in the pocket of the beat is hip hop.”

Hunnid Mill

The first thing that struck me about this group is their work ethic as a whole, I asked for info and it came right up and that type of professionalism is what may take them forward in the game. HunnidMill has a pretty prolific YouTube presence, meaning more than 30 videos and none of them sound the same, which is a positive. I can say that I enjoyed seeing young people having fun and listening to some of the music like “Adventure Time”, which was freestyle over the music track of one of the artist’s favorite cartoons. Yeah all new skool Hip Hop heads aren’t talking about strip clubs!

One of the best of the joints was called HUNNID MILL – OMG NEW SWAGG ”Round Cher” (MUSIC VIDEO) although I did find disturbing the fact there were youngsters waving a gun around recklessly even while filming themselves playing video games. Where were the parents?! All in all this crew represents the fun side of Hip Hop and mix in the skater lifestyle with that as well.

HunnidMill doesn’t have an album and the singles are spur of the moment freestyles with a need for some better sound mixing but I looked beyond that! Look at these kids as young cats trying to have a bit of fun, which is what Hip Hop started from, and trying to do something other than shoot up everything. Check them out! What do you think…remember they are growing into professionals!
