    She's baaaaack!!! I know it's been a while but Lasuria Kandi Allman is back and the interviews are rolling in for a new edition of The Hotseat- THE UNDERGROUND. The first guest in the Hotseat Underground  is Michael "Black Rain" Flowers

    Michael Flowers also known as Rain, was born on May 19th, 1982. He grew up on the west side of Detroit raised by both parents. During his childhood he was exposed to different genres of music from artists such as The Funkadelic's, Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones and NWA. He gives credit to his father and uncle for that exposure, it caused him to fall in love with music but he ultimately fell in love with the creativity and the lyrical word play of hip-hop.


    His early experimentation with music bought him to a place of uncertainty, he couldn't decide which avenue he wanted to take and took a sabbatical from music. In 1996, at Redford High School, he found himself running the hallways with the wrong crowd. This behavior later led to him hustling, chasing girls and being unfocused in life. One day in the lunch room, the intriguing sound of a cipher going on caught his attention. It was at that moment his love for hip-hop was rekindled. Despite his love for the music, it still took a backseat to the hustle.

     In 2005, the street life almost got the best of him as his vehicle was shot at numerous times with his cousin being shot however he was unharmed by the grace of God. It was then he realized hustling was no longer for him and he wanted more. He wanted to live freely and make his love for music known to the world. In 2006, he started the journey to reconcile his life. He acquired a position that gave him the time to be more focused on fufilling his dreams.


    The birth of "The Bad Guys"... a group that included him, Killa Kev, General Beans, and Philly Fresh worked diligently to record 'Bad News The Mix Tape'. The mixtape was independently sold around the city with hopes of building an audience and eventually being the next big thing. Shortly after 'Bad News' hit the streets the group was dismantled but Rain decided to continue on with his journey to become a star!!! With the advice of Killa Kev, he decided to become a writer. In a matter of months he wrote 18 songs which he's currently in the studio recording new songs weekly. He has toured in different states, currently has songs in rotation, radio interview and recently released his first mixtape Rain Organics... and is currently working on material for the upcoming cd..
