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

Hi Shakur, what is the most important factor behind your success?
Success is what you determine it to be, God only puts his toughest soldiers through the roughest obstacles

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Well I the biggest underdog out of East Atlanta. I’m the woman who does it all, I work a nine to five, a full-time first 4yr generation college student, model, artist, and CEO of “KUR MAKES PLATES”

Overall a lot of people did not believe in me. Some judge me because I wanted to be different but overall I’m meant to be different

Baby someone needs to lead the way and I do , in my own way

KUR MAKES PLATES is a catering buisness where you can request meals, or order from my menu and the CEO travels with her food

Modeling wise I do all types of shoots and videos and my rates are very reasonable

Shakur is valid

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
My favorite sports are volleyball and basketball

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My biggest motivation is Gio and Myself, in this life you have to be very self-motivated. Everybody wants to eat and be wealthy but not hustle nor grind as hard to get it. Therefore, I go hard for us everyday! Everyone who has supported me and hated on me as well deserves some recognition because overall I wouldn’t be the person I am today without it. BLESSINGS
