Interview with Christopher Lee Davenport (@madman_one)


Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path? 

I started rapping in the 7th grade at the age of 13, was mostly influenced by late 80s and early 90s rap and rock, used to freestyle in my mind, until my cousin and friend finally talked me in to start recording, really liked doing it and went from there, I went on to do it until my early 20s getting better and better. 

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this? 

Shook hands with Tupac, I was downtown Indianapolis In, probably 1992-1993 Tupac was in town doing a show me and my cousin was at the clay pool court a nice hotel to get a drink, a couple of guys asked us if we knew where they could get a new pair of shoes we told them how to get to the mall, when we were done we all shook hands when they walked away my cousin said that was Tupac, he turned around and said dam right. 

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”? 

God and family come first, stay positive, stay motivated, always be real, be honest, appreciate your fans, work hard, never give up.

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story? 

My Cousin Encouraged me to do this, he had faith when no one else did I am forever grateful.

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world? 

I Always resort back to something positive in my music and keeping family values. 

Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
