We had the good fortune of connecting with Mama Bee and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Mama, what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
Mama Bee productions is the ongoing process of my creative experiences. I have been a performing artist my whole life. This company is the natural occurrence of things when you are a creative Goddess. The chance of success is greater when you pursue that which you love and thrive in.
My passions turned into a career, my career into a company, my company shall be my legacy, and that legacy into generational wealth.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Respectfully, my friends call me K to the C but if you don’t know me
put that Ms. in front of that name
give me my respect chief
like these double D’s
ego so big, I call that BITCH
original lyrics from The Mama Bee Experience
Mama Bee Productions is the ongoing Creative processes of Mama Bee; the alter ego of Ms. KC. A production company dedicated to providing a venue, for the underdog, to be recognized.
Many hats are worn by Ms. KC, as the sole proprietor, many responsibilities are involved in the creative process of a project.
For example, client needs vary: from creating promotional videos for an artist, artist development, or to bring awareness to a cause, the goal is to bring balance to the project.
Mama Bee Productions provides Creative Consultation to assist in the journey through the stages of the creative process. The idea behind the formation of the company is to assist the client in producing a project with commercial viability.
Project consultation and training, with a focus in presentation development, to enhance the chances of commercial exposure,
As a Creative Consultant, I get the chance to fulfill my dreams of making my world beautiful. As far back as I can remember, I created beautiful things out of what was around me. What people discarded, I created beauty from those things. I remember making beautiful doll clothes from old socks, or hair bows from my mother’s silk slips.
Family and friends have hired me to coordinate their weddings, birthday parties, and a host of other events. It comes naturally to me to make things flow with organized beauty.
What is organized beauty? Beauty that naturally flows together by creating an environment that people compliment it as such. Have you ever been to an event that just swept your breath away? Have you ever commented after watching a video, “Oh yea. that was awesome!” That is what I live for, to create those moments that create beauty and happiness.
The challenges that I face creating this company are dealing with the operational costs. From equipment to staff, finding reputable sources can be quite challenging. I strive everyday to find the necessary tools to make this company a formative competitor in the market.
The formation of this company is important to me because I want to create a legacy my children can inherit. Generational wealth creation is the secondary goal of Mama Bee Productions.
The Mama Bee Productions Brand is synonymous with the underdog. Bees don’t explain to flies why honey is better than Shit. It is not about fame. It is about creating projects that are commercially viable to obtain financial success.
As I stated, I wear many hats in the pursuit of expressing my creative abilities. Educator, Spoken word artist, entertainer, video personality are just a few examples of my experiences. Find me online teaching a summer camp for kids to learn how to braid hair, or teach their parents how to braid, too.
Performing and entertaining people have been my life’s history of colorful adventures. Talent shows, dance contests, and being on stage developed me into the person I am now. A love of entertaining and using my voice through entertainment to make a change.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Hang On to your seats and get ready for the Mama Bee Experience. First, we would have to go see my girl, LaLaNews3 (formerly LaLa Madness) , she is a host, with the most, that interviews hot, new Atlanta artists at different events around ATL. Then, I would have to go see my man J Dot Brown a.k.a Mr. Cake Me Happy, and get that Mama Ginger Pound cake that makes you want to slap your Mama, LOL. Not only is J. Dot Brown a baking extraordinaire, he is a prolific rapper with a message for the ages. Also, when it’s time to turn up, we would head over to the Black Only LLC Studios to check out the latest happenings of Atlanta’s hot, new rap and hip hop artist, Like Ms. Combat Pretty.
We may even go hang out with friends at the condos in Bank Head. Or, hanging out with friends at the Rasa Agency Studios. We may even end up at a Hookah & Hollering event cracking up with comedian Raheem Holt (#tittietuesday), and Mope Williams. Or, hanging out with me to watch an artist I manage perform at a 2hotradio event.
Whenever you hang with Mama Bee, believe you will have the Experience of a lifetime.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
