We had the good fortune of connecting with Montel Johnson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Montel, we’d love to start by asking you about lessons learned. Is there a lesson you can share with us?
The most important lesson my business/career has taught me is what’s for me is for me and what is not for me is not for me don’t give up on what’s yours if that’s what you really want you will own it and anything else you put your mind too.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
What sets me aside from others is that I don’t follow trends I set them. And I mean that on another scale , not in a cocky way! Honestly being raised in a single parent home seeing that it can take one person too raise a tribe , that’s what made me stronger to always look at the bigger picture and get it by all means! Professionally if it wasn’t my mother , mentor and manger who over the years groomed me by following there foot steps in greatness I would probably be still following trends instead of setting them. It’s not easy too be on a higher level of being professional because too some people it can come off being a know it all , but hey I rather know enough than nothing at all. I just want the world too know there is not enough hours in the day nor enough time with life to play , make reasoning for every move you make you only get one life , one shot and one chance make it your best! New Music from “King Royal” (My artist name will be released this November stay tuned. They tried too keep me in a box but it won’t happen!

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
My favorite spots in the city are the midtown downtown area because it’s beautiful at night and during the day there’s always many places to play! Very optional.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want too shoutout God for allowing me too still be here and for not giving up on me knowing my heart as well as placing them people in my life , lessons and blessings! If it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t be able to be here to do or say anything. So I have to give credit to the highest honor.
