We had the good fortune of connecting with Joshua Ashton and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Joshua, why did you decide to pursue a creative path?
The career that I pursue is so creative because of the fact that I can reach people, I am a people person so if people can see me doing something good and seeing me doing something that they like then it’s gonna make people want to watch me and pay attention to me and when they pay attention to me that means they gonna watch every move I make and when that happens I got to be able to make a positive impact on them and that’s what I want to do is make a impact on them in a positive way
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 like I stated before I’m a Club Host/ MC and College Promoter and I know it’s a lot of competition and I got to be prepared for but at the same time I know my work ethic and I know I’m time consuming and everything I do I give it a 110%. The most thing that I’m a proud of is that me getting out my shell and being able to expand and show my talents to the world and my fans. I got to where I am today by the grace of god and me taking the steps to become the best Club Host/MC in the nation which means me reaching out and making phone calls and collaborating with different people from different schools and different cities.; no it wasn’t easy due to the fact that when you go to different schools and cities you is at a disadvantage and you is competing with people who has already done the same thing that you are trying to do at their school and city. I have learned that everyone don’t mean you any good you have to be careful with the people that you bring along for the ride with you because at the end of the day the same people that you think is there to support you are the exact same people that’s gonna eventually try to destroy your progress. Well I want the world to know that myself as MC Big Josh is a upcoming artist and that he is here to become the next big thing and before he does that he understand that it’s not going to be easy and he knows that he is gonna have to be humble and focus and loyal to his craft. My story is a story of perseverance and a story that will give you the tools to succeed and perform to the best of your ability.
Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
I believe and I seen in this day in time that most people that like to have fun go to arcades such as Dave’s and Busters or The Main Event that is just two places I love to go and just have fun and vibe. Many people like different things and are different persons so that’s just something that I know for a fact people love to do because people like to move around and be active
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Well I know I have a lot of people that helped me along the way and I know I can’t shout everyone out but the people I do want to shoutout is God for giving me the strength and ability to do what I do; I want to shoutout to my family for being there and supporting me and telling me what’s right and wrong. I have to give a big shoutout to my business partner Kizton Cole because we been through a lot together from business to personal and he always been there so I got to shout him out.
