Burnell Herring aka AK Swift

Can you tell me, how did you start your music career ?

I spent alot of time in my grandfathers church as a child and was also a member of his choir (Yes I can sing too) at age 9 I heard my first rap song which inspired me to write poetry, at age 11 I learned to play the violin, by age 12 I had learned the violin, viola, cello, and contra bass.

Patience... everybody must have it

Why you choose your stage name AK Swift? Does this name have a story ?

I had gotten the name Swift because I was the fastest runner on the track team in school, when I started rapping I added BK because they were the initials of my first and middle name, then I changed it to AK in 1992, the name used to mean Asiatic Knowledge Swinging With Incredible Force Totally, now the AK means African Knight.

 

How did you meet the producers of Magic Affair ?

I met them in 1991 through producers I was already working with, Franca Morgano joined us 2 years later.

Does it bother you that the people know you from Magic Affair project ?

Not at all.

 

Why did you leave this project... can you tell me the real reason if it is possible!?

I spent a lot of my time (Before Magic Affair) building my own career, for every song I did with Magic Affair, I made 50 AK songs, I've been a producer for 21 years, choreographer 17 years, and it was my time to show people what I got…

 

After Magic Affair, you joined Booya Family team... how was working with them and with Toni Cottura especially ?

It was a joke, I was never treated like one of the Booya Family. There was a lot of jealousy and bullshit, they did Booya Family videos behind my back, took Booya Family photos for magazines without calling me, I even showed them the Booya family hand sign.

Fuck Booya.

 

Burnell, what do you think about the 90's revival ?

I love it, it shows that there are still people out there thinking about us.

 

Are you thinking you and Franca to participate to one of that concerts as Magic Affair ?

We will be there, Magic Affair has been back together since 2007

 

How is Burnell in real life ?

Just trying to survive like everyone else, I'm looking forward to going back to Chicago.

 

What is the best thing that ever happened in your life ?

The birth of both of my children.

 

Being a dad is a hard job!?

Nope, my father is cool, and made raising us easy, I just used what he taught me

My mother was a Goddess, I miss her everyday.

 

You're one of the most popular eurodance rapper... besides Turbo B, Ray (2unlimited) & LayZee. With whom would you like to do a featuring ?

I know Turbo most of my life, we were in school together, and we were in the military in Friedberg together, so the answer is quite obvious

 

I know that you and Franca are working' at new M.A. material... what can you tell me about that ?

Shhhhhhhh...

 

It's a secret like Victoria's Secret !?

LOL you got it!

Let’s just say that there will be a couple of surprises.

 

If M.A. new material is a secret... Can you speak about your last project that you were involved, EuroRapRevival ??

I'm currently finishing my album, the eurorap album is finished, and I'm producing my Godson's Los Monteros. They rap in English, German, and Spanish.

 

Does the project have a message?

Many messages.

 

What are your future plans?

Music and acting, I'm looking at a few movie deals.

 

Do you have a message for M.A. fans ?

Education and respect for your parents and family, without those we have nothing.

 

Thanks for your time

No problem Bro, PEACE!!!.
