Greatness don't come from rushing, it comes from patience.
Los Angeles-Long Beach, CA (1888PressRelease) April 30, 2012 - America's Independence holiday is the 4th of July, but on May 7th for Kenneth Monroe-- it will be celebrating the Independence of a young boss. Turning 30 is a very important time in a young boss' life. It's a time to reflect, grow, throw away old habits and lay down a life changing foundation of inspiration. The New Fresh Prince of Bel Air is ready to shine at the highest level.
Monroe's 20's were challenging but a great learning experience about life. Not following the industry's blueprint made him who he is today. Making mainstream moves, building factor connections and crossing over on a independent level is rare. You can check off all three because the mission has been accomplished. From big endorsement deals to starring in/exec producing/co-writing 3 impactful indie movies in one year, not to mention bankrolling 3 soundtracks into distribution, producing high end parties in Bel Air, Beverly Hills and other exclusive Hollywood destinations. Along with being named the 1st ever "Cub of the Year" and producing exclusive campaigns for celebs, People like Monroe don't come around everyday. It's a breath of fresh air to witness a leader when we live in a world of many followers.
"I've never really did what other people was doing. I've always thought outside the box and I'm respected for being different. When I walk in a room you will notice me and when we're done talking- in minutes you'll realize that I know my stuff. Success is about who you know but the key to life is longevity. Presence can make you stay around in this industry. You could also have a million fans but if you don't have talent you will soon fizzle out. It's not a coincidence that I'm independent yet handle big business with celebs, studio producers, big fashion designers, professional athletes, film festival owners, big International companies, politicians and a slew of rich people. I had select city theater and record label deal offers before completion of my films and soundtracks but turned them down because I didn't like the deals. When you don't know your value you will sign to anything because you're desperate. I never been that guy. You can't b.s. me because I'll read through you. Agents and managers have been pressuring me to sign but I'm still weighing my options. Greatness don't come from rushing, it comes from patience. Hollywood is about crossing over- period. If you don't have the presence and charisma to crossover and the talent to stick around then you are very limited. I'm internally humble and grateful to have both dimensions. I'm connected with different nationalities and I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. I didn't get the nickname New Fresh Prince of Bel Air for no reason" (Monroe)

You never know what he will do or wear from hair, wardrobe and shoes. With no limits this is a fun and creative project to take on. He trust me with all the small details and his presence never disappoints. He has been a good friend of mine for years and blinging him out is my forte. Without giving away too much, we will definitely create the pizzazz and glam he is well known for." (Bizzy B)

We both see the never ending ladder that goes far above and we pull each other up. It's hard to believe he's packed all his efforts in only 30 years and it's wonderful to be apart of his 30th bash."
