ON SCREEN TEXT: FRESH EMPIRE COM PLEX A title pops up. ON SCREEN TEXT: PRESENT THE NEW WAVE A neon green screen opens up to a warehouse, where a young artist with short dreads interviews as a crew prepares a photo set behind him. ON SCREEN TEXT: UNGHETTO MATHIEU UNGHETTO MATHIEU: It's the kid. I'm Unghetto Mathieu, and I was born in Congo, Africa. I now stay in Atlanta. I would say my sound is unique because I know how to make my lyrical ability and mix it with the New Wave to create sound people want to listen to. I can switch from lyrical hard flow right back to the New Wave style in like a second. Unghetto Mathieu walks down a warehouse hallway, then poses sitting on a crate near a sunny window as a photographer snaps photos. Interviewing, he counts on his fingers. UNGHETTO MATHIEU: People just care about my music 'cause: One, it's good. Two, I'm beautiful. And three... The music stops as Unghetto Mathieu thinks. He laughs and shakes his head. The music starts back up. UNGHETTO MATHIEU: I try to turn everything into a positive. In his photoshoot outfit, he dances energetically. He interviews. UNGHETTO MATHIEU : You won't catch me mad a lot. I'm always just dancing or happy. I'm a rapper, but dancing really makes me happy, so I just, I dance sometimes. I answer right with my crowds by joking with them sometimes before and after the show, and just being funny and doin' funny stuff on stage. Like... He shakes his head, smiling. UNGHETTO MATHIEU: ...Funny stuff. I'll look at a fan and be like... He gets low as he shimmies. UNGHETTO MATHIEU: And they'll just start laughing. He smiles. UNGHETTO MATHIEU : A celebrity crush? He hesitates, smiling bashfully and licking his lips. UNGHETTO MATHIEU: Keke Palmer, get at me. An interviewer laughs. UNGHETTO MATTIE : Living tobacco-free growing up has impacted my life because I have seen a lot of people throw money and time and a lot of tears into tobacco with their families and their life, and I just really didn't want to live that way. Cigarettes kill more than thirteen hundred people each day. I'm not with that. He addresses the camera straight on. UNGHETTO MATHIEU: It's Unghetto Mathieu, and I ride with Fresh Empire. Always keep it fresh. Live tobacco-free. The Fresh Empire logo appears with text over washed out footage of highways, and a chain-link fence. ON SCREEN TEXT: VOTE NOW FreshEmpire.gov/TheNewWave FRESH EMPIRE KEEP IT FRESH AND LIVE TOBACCO-FREE SWAY: Fresh Empire. Keep it fresh, and live tobacco-free.
