Bonsu Thompson can be represented by many adjectives, but “average” isn’t one of them. The marketing and editorial producer has commanded titles such as Editor-In-Chief of The Source, Creative Consultant for MTV2, Editorial Consultant for Vibe and Spin Media, SLAM magazine Senior Writer and Music Editor for XXL magazine.
The cultural engineer’s vision, ideation and creativity in the marketing and branding space has satisﬁed powerhouse brands such as NIKE, Hennessy, Translation, Rocawear, Stoli and Beats By Dre, to name a few.
Mr. Thompson has interviewed and written on some of the grandest names in entertainment––music (Jay-Z, Clive Davis), Hollywood (Sanaa Lathan, Dan Akroyd), sports (Carmelo Anthony, Dwight Howard), fashion (Chanel Iman, Jessica White)––while outsourcing his pen to esteemed publications like Billboard, Penthouse and Details. It was Bonsu’s vivid pen, basset hound-reporting and riveting interview approach that lead to Rolling Stone anointing him their 2001 “Hot Interviewer.”
