Today we’d like to introduce you to Muchacho Malo.
Hi Muchacho, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I started out as an art enthusiast very young.
In school, I would sing in school events, rap in after school programs, write poems for my friends for their loved ones, draw graffiti on peers’ notebooks and cardboard for their bedroom walls even drew prom dresses for them to get made and my class graduation and junior design to get silkscreened plus did small & huge pencil pieces for money.
After prep school college was the same, I was making couture clothing from scratch, drawing for magazines, assistant manager of a local ready-to-wear clothing line, performing at local events poetry, and recording music and battle rapping with my circle of the artist in the city. I ended up working part-time at a vegan cafe that’s where I figure out something else, I loved prep and serving food.
Fast forward I started a vegan cafe and made local history and then the pop-ups slowed up and I began personal cheffing for new and old customers (vegan and none vegan) around this time I meet my future manager and he at the time allowed me to do three events a week. We would sell out almost every time behind the scenes it was my self-made instrumentals playing while I was cooking, I had stopped rapping because I felt I was too old.
Currently, I am the creative director and pop up chef of the gallery about nothing the place that gave me a chance, executive chef of dos Migos seafood, and owner of anti-one art a creative hub with every kind of art, food, and plating, handmade and ready-to-wear clothing, paintings, prints, creative directing and graphic design, Muchacho Malo the rapper and producer – and one half of 72brix hip-hop duo.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
It has been very smooth. I feel like patience is everything on the road to success.
Every bump in the road adds character as a young entrepreneur, I felt the whole thing was a struggle and uphill battle I was overreacting and spoiled.
All I had to do was focus on each talent and allow the customers to come. The customers are here and I’m busy as ever and I now see there was no struggle but a smooth misunderstanding. Lol.
