This by far has been one of my greatest interviews. Not many know all the positives about Mandeecees because people are so concerned about the drama. I had the opportunity to sit down and talk with him. Mandeecees Harris is from Harlem, New York. I asked him was it hard growing up? He said, Absolutely! I grew up in the projects it was real rough! So than it made me ask what’s the hardest thing you ever been through? He said, “My family breaking up because of my mother being on drugs, but eventually other family members stepped up and we got through it.” Now I know you all watch Love & Hip Hop. I see Mandeecees and the first thing I think is HUMBLE. So I asked him, how do you remain humble with everything else going on around you? He said, “For the most part it’s like growing up not having to getting to a point where I have it now it’s always appreciated I know nobody owes me anything so I’m just grateful for every little thing.” I see him even though I didn’t really know him and you can tell that he has grown as a man and being humble helped him get to where he is. I asked Mandeecees who’s the biggest influence on your life? He said, “My mom because she got through her hard times she been positive almost 20yrs now I see her grind everyday she’s one of them.” “Also outside of my mom I’ll say like Jay-Z cause he from the projects and what he accomplished today it just gives us hope that anybody can do it.” And that’s right no matter how young or how old no matter where you come from anything is possible! I asked Mandeecees, what do you want people to know about you that they don’t know? He said, “I’m not like a talkative person but I’m trying now being that this whole camera thing this tv and movie thing I’m just learning to get comfortable with it and talking in front of crowds.” Where do you see yourself in the next five years? He said, “Shiddd Hopefully not in jail (knock on wood) I mean I’m still fighting this case so hopefully not there I wanna see myself alive and healthy and with my kids.” Nobody can argue with that! What’s the advice you’ll give to someone trying to make their dreams reality? He said, “Never Give Up!” “Believe in God, pray, act on what you speak and start taking baby steps crawl into that direction if you have too if you want to be a rapper hang out at the studio listen to beats write, if you wanna be a doctor go to school start reading books take steps to your dreams and goals and it makes it that easy to accomplish it stay consistent and never give up.” You know, I’m listening to him give me these answers and I could really tell that not many if any media person has ever tried to show the positive side to him. Mandeecees is very down to earth I spoke with him for about 3 hours. What touched me the most was that we have the same beliefs. So if theirs negative energy that’s what you’re putting out to the universe and that’s what you are getting you’re getting the negative. But if you can remain positive and find the positive in even bad situations you will realize your growth will be remarkable ! Most people that judge you don’t know much about you so if you’re willing to judge your best bet is to get to know the person first. And I did! Mandeecees is a very good man and he spoke from the bottom of his heart. I will never forget this day and if I can share more with you all I will. He has some major things coming up, stay tuned. Never Give Up! Yo Mandeecees! Part 2 ?
