Bonsu Thompson

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.”

Gallant Talks Signature Falsetto, Being an Introverted Songwriter & His Introspective Debut 'Ology'

Gallant’s debut album Ology offers some of the most abstract and excruciatingly vulnerable writing heard from a rookie this decade––there are WTF song titles like “Percogesic” and labyrinth lines like “I’m a tritone bible with misprint logic,” off the smoky “Bourbon.” This summer, you can experience these numbers live as Gallant tours with label mate Zhu and makes his Coachella debut. For now, get to know the raw talent whose muse is his own complexities.
