Texas Rapper, Woody Mane proves to be a Contender in the world of Hip-Hop

 

David Austin (March 17, 1984) better known by his stage name, Woody Mane is an independent rapper born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas, signed to Oneof1 Management Company. Woody Mane will mark his territory with his forthcoming EP titled, “Ghost 2.5.”

Strongly influenced by his surroundings while growing up in the gang-ridden neighborhood of Eastwood in Fort Worth, Woody Mane quickly realized his passion for music early. Woody began using it as an outlet to express things he would see in his day to day environment.

Greatly inspired by musical acts like Tupac, Lil Wayne and Chamillionaire, Mane’s biggest motivation to pursue a music career came following the untimely death of his biggest supporter and eldest brother, Derrick Austin in 2008.

The loss was a pivotal moment for the rising star, as it motivated him to go harder with his pursuit of music and begin performing throughout the DFW metroplex. He quickly amassed a core following, which resulted in him being featured on Texas legend, Lil Keke’s 2014 hit, ‘Subtract Da Top’ off his “Money Don’t Sleep” album. Since then he has gone on to collaborate with other notable Texas rappers such as Tum Tum, Solo Lucci, and Jaio.

In 2015, Mane dropped his highly anticipated debut project, Codeine Fiend, which received a warm reception by fans with popular tracks ‘Regulate’ and ‘Masked Murderer.’ He then followed up its success with the release of his second project, Black Ghost in 2016 which earned him the attention of mega music executive, Debra Antney. Woody Mane’s third project, Ghost dropped April 19, 2017, and is still doing numbers.

WM’s latest compilation, GHOST 2.5 is set to be released soon! Make sure to follow him to stay in tune with updates.

(HEAT INTERVIEW) The multi-talented Evan Golden

Tuesday, June 5th, 2018

From host, print model, entertainment correspondent, philanthropist, athlete, and reality TV star, to being the breakout star on Ivana Trump’s reality show, Evan has been putting in work and seeing massive results.

The Florida native has quite an impressive resume that includes national commercials, TV appearances, hosting, and so much more. He currently hosts “Eye on South Florida”, a role in which he has had the opportunity to interview countless celebrities. In addition, he was recently nominated for the “Real Men Wear Pink Campaign” supporting the American Cancer Society. Evan says he stepped up to help fight breast cancer with all he has, while emphasizing the fact that both women and men can be affected by the disease. Most importantly, Evan says he recognizes that he is in a position of influence and that he is obligated to use his position wisely and to shine his light. All of that aside though, his most important role is likely that of a family man.

Suffice it to say, Evan is a busy man who is using his celebrity for good. It is no wonder why he has been blessed with such golden opportunities. He is truly a one-man show whose talent, personality and high energy stands out. It is because of this that he is highly sought after. It is also because of these qualities that we are confident it will not be long before Evan takes his place among the superstars of his generation.

We recently caught up with Evan Golden and here’s what he had to say:

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Growing up, who influenced you the most?

EVAN GOLDEN: My parents influenced me the most. They gave my sister and me the ability to pursue our passions and have showed us the meaning of true love and the importance of family.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: You have an interesting story. If you had to pinpoint one moment that solidified your entering the entertainment industry, what would that be?

EVAN GOLDEN: Being cast on Ivana Trump’s reality show, “Ivana Young Man” was one of the most exhilarating television experiences of my life. Ivana Trump personally hand-picked me to be on the show, as I was one of 6 bachelors given the opportunity of luxury, fame and riches. Spoiler Alert – I made it to the Final 2. If you have not watched this reality show, it’s a must see. You will laugh, cry and be in suspense the entire time.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Do you think excelling in sports helps you in your current career?

EVAN GOLDEN: In sports you learn valuable life lessons. You learn how to work as a team, taking directions, making effort, overcoming adversity, and responding to defeat. Practice makes perfect. Many aspects, I use every day in life. I have learned through team and organized sports.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What has been your favorite “gig” so far and why?

EVAN GOLDEN: Hosting the TV Show “Eye on South Florida” is a dream come true. I am able to share all the amazing things happening in our community.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What has been your greatest accomplishment as an entertainment personality?

EVAN GOLDEN: Having a platform to help bring awareness to so many small local non-profit organizations. As the recipient of South Florida Young Leaders in Philanthropy, I have been able to help bring much exposure and have raised thousands of dollars for many local non-profits.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What motivates you?

EVAN GOLDEN: I am motivated to be a good human and role model for my two sons to look up to and be proud of. I am a leader in my community and will help heal us as we try to overcome the Parkland Shooting Massacre.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What are you currently working on?

EVAN GOLDEN: Currently I have been nominated for the “Real Men Wear Pink Campaign” on behalf of the American Cancer Society, so I am raising money for breast cancer.
