Keyvon Thierry is a successful music mogul-turned real estate investor. For his trailblazing efforts and philanthropy, he is on the verge of receiving a lifetime achievement award for his work in establishing the South as a dominant force in Hip-Hop, both culturally and musically. What he started as Magnolia Music Inc. blossomed into Magnolia Holdings and Investments. The opposition he faced 25 years ago when starting a hard core rap label in the south, was conventional thinking from outsiders. The opposition he faces now, comes in the face of urban development, "old money," and corrupt politics. Keyvon sits with Senior Editor, Saul Gravy, from The Main Source Magazine to discuss 90's Hip-Hop culture along the Gulf Coast, gentrification, and how his money flipped three ways."Playerz from the South, is the first scripted Hip-Hop podcast. A creative blend of dope writing and pursuasive storytelling. The south has a deep, yet exclusive history in Hip-Hop culture. The evolution is evident, yet the curation of storytelling has always suffered from misinformation perpetuated by negative stereotypes. Now we get to tell our stories, our way!" Creator- Nathan T. Rideaux
