the only thing that takes me away from this worldly stuff where everybody has to have money. When I get on stage, I completely go back to that person I was when I was eight years old and remember how much fun I was having performing in front of people.

The INDIEgator: I love that. It’s so beautiful when we stick to who we knew we were, the gifts that we knew we had as kids. I mean that’s what makes it all so special!

Mr. Cap: It would be hard if I was just focused on getting money. I am fortunate to the point where I get paid a little bit of money here and there to do shows, or sometimes features and stuff like that. For me to be an Artist on the level that I’m on, I don’t feel like I’ve arrived to that level where I’m in such demand that people want to pay me all this big money; but I feel like I’m still in a really blessed situation where people still respect me enough to call on me for interviews, collaborations and guest appearance. I do take all of that in as humbling, you know?

The INDIEgator: Plus you get to travel a lot. With the Mr. CAP International movement, what is that like and is there a difference that you’ve noticed

between the International love and the Houston love you receive?

Mr. Cap:  Well, Internationally is a totally different ball game when you travel around the country let alone travel around the world. It’s already a big difference traveling out of Houston, TX. There’s a huge difference in how people perceive music; it often seems like the rest of the country and the rest of the world really take in music, they really embrace it. Then it seems as if in Houston, and I’m not shooting slugs at anybody…

The INDIEgator: No, you’re just keeping it real yeah…

Mr. Cap: ….people do not always embrace the Art of music. I think that many Artists are so caught up in trying to floss, be seen, or be famous that they lose the value Music has as a whole. It’s crazy how you can go somewhere overseas and they are listening to Houston music, but we’re out here and we don’t even listen to Houston music as much as the people all over the world.

The INDIEgator: Yeah, we’re known to support everybody but ourselves a lot of the times. I’ve seen that a lot

over the past decade that I’ve been out here.

Mr. Cap: That’s the craziest part. Texas is one of the states where we have our own power grid supporting us, making us completely independent from everybody in the country. So just like that power grid we don’t share with any other states, it’s funny how our own people don’t even follow that model you know what I’m saying? We’re independent as a city and have some of the biggest and best Artists coming out of Houston, but we just don’t stick together enough to have our own power grid, so to say.

The INDIEgator: That’s true. That’s very true. I know I have personally met TONS of super talented Entertainers during my journey here over the last 10 years. Unfortunately that means I have also seen many come and go. Even myself, I’ve disappeared and reappeared a few times but never give up. It is very frustrating for a lot of us when we don’t have support. I don’t want anyone to think that we’re just hating on or downing Houston, but I think most of us in the Entertainment industry down here know exactly what he’s talking about. There’s a deficiency of loyalty or cohesiveness often times.
