As the Co-Owner of Industry Unlocked, Luc Stephen is becoming a force to be reckoned with in the film industry. Born in Haiti and raised in Boston, Luc now resides in Jamaica Queens. This Haitian-American became intrigued with the film & television industry after being featured in a well-known BET series entitled, “American Gangster”. “Being featured in the American Gangster series and then becoming a consultant made me extremely intrigued with the behind-the-scenes aspect of the film & television industry”, states Stephen. “Television Executive, Curtis Scoon, taught me a lot about the industry in a short period of time”. Reruns of “American Gangster” are now being aired History and A&E channels.

“I love to write”, states Luc who is the co-creator of the film series, “Prey Before You Eat”. Released originally during the Spring of 2016, Part one of the series garnered well over a quarter of a million (350k) views on YouTube. With high viewership numbers within a short period of time, Luc and his partner Doc, then moved forward to produce Part II of this film series, which premiered in October 2016 reaching over (300k) views. Notables, RIP Michaels and Mimi Faust of “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta” are also featured in Part II of the series. When asked why he and his partner chose to do a film series instead of the ever popular web series, Luc states, “We watched “Respect Life” and “Money & Violence”. We loved them; however, we wanted to do something different, thus our film series, “Prey Before You Eat” which tells the story of two females who lived a life of crime”.

Luc Stephen states his film influences as Spike Lee, Tyler Perry, John Singleton, F. Gary Gray, Ice Cube, and Will Packer.

Another past time of Luc’s, is promotion. He had been very active with the promotion of Comedy Shows and Celebrity Club appearances or the likes of known talents such as Nikki Minaj, Kevin Hart, Brandy, Bobby Schmurda, DJ’s Envy, Clue, Self, and Kid Capri. In and around the New York area, Luc was a promoter under the moniker of Second Chance Enterprises.

In his spare time, Stephen loves to exercise, try different foods, and travel. In his hometown, he also enjoys feeding the homeless and completing volunteer work in his community of Jamaica, Queens (NYC).

When asked where fans can expect to see Luc five years from now, he states, “Within that time frame, I see myself as an Award-winning Film Executive with project on major networks and big screens”.

At the end of 2017, Luc’s company, Industry Unlocked, won several awards during the First Annual Webseries Awards at New York University and his film, “CIRCLES”, a short film based on HIV/AIDS, was entered into the Newark International Film Festival and The Hip-Hop Film Festival.

Circles is nominated for best short film in the 2018 Urban Web Series Awards.

DMV-based rapper/producer Santa Sallet and France-based producer Nemizzo are MSP, presenting their new single “Big Hands”. Sallet has been busy showcasing his brand of East Coast braggadocious rap across a slew of recent singles like “Camouflage” (watch on Youtube), “I Get Money” (watch on Youtube), “Championship Ring” (watch on Youtube) and “Chinese Funk” (watch on Youtube) in preparation for the release of Plutography, Sallet’s forthcoming album which blends salsa beats, southern trap, and eastern jazz with classic and conventional rap samples, reflecting Sallet’s international upbringing across South Africa, Dominica and the US. Sallet is planning a series of full-length releases, among them C.R.E.A.M. which recounts his journey from broke to financially free, and Women and R.A.P. which describe his pursuit of success in relationships and the music industry respectively. “This is the song that really started MSP Tunes,” Santa says. “Nemizzo had laid down his verse and I was like, let me try something on this and I just talked about what I knew. What I think is funny, the outro is actually me recording a bunch of potential beat tags. There was a miscommunication and Nemizzo extended the beat and made it the outro. I like it though lol.” Check out Santa Sallet merch here.
