Quotes from The Come Up Show team members who began with The Come Up
Show as interns.
From Martin Bauman aka M-Bomb as a Music Blogger.
When I joined The Come Up Show, I didnt care what role I had on the team; I just
knew that I wanted to be involved. I knew it would open doors for me, but never
could I have imagined how soon those opportunities would start knocking, or how
often. Within the first month of my internship, I had opportunities to interview Iron
Solomon and David Banner. From then on, the interview opportunities only
continued. In the past 8 months alone, Ive interviewed over 20 artists, including
Brother Ali, Phonte, Skyzoo, Fashawn, Soul Khan, Kayo, SonReal, and many others.
Ive developed relationships with artists and their management, and discovered
more hip-hop this past year than I have in the rest of my lifetime. Believe me when I
say the opportunities at The Come Up Show are limitless. Its up to you to see the
potential and make the most of it.

From Michael Lavictoire aka Mlav as a Music Reviewer and Blogger.
Since my internship began, it has been a pleasure to work for The Come Up Show. As
an individual interested in the music industry, I have been fortunate to attend and
publish reviews in regards to several different artists and their performances. After
completing a course in Radio Broadcasting at Mohawk College, Ive had the
opportunity to expand my knowledge while gaining experience every step of the
way. Being a content provider and writer for The Come Up Show has enriched my
learning, giving me the ability to grow as a person. There really are no boundaries
for doing something in which you truly enjoy.
