If you’re not familiar with Sean Garrett, don”t worry.
We don’t really know who he is either. But soon we will all get a chance to learn more about this guy who apparently has penned hits for some pretty important music people, including Rihanna, Beyonce, andUsher among others.
Garrett released an album (Turbo 919) and mixtape (The Inkwell) as a solo artist, but would like to bring fans into his life on a personal level through a reality television show. I’m guessing that when he says “fans” he means…us? Anyway, the Atlanta based “hitmaker’s” show (which proves anything is possible) will focus on his relationship with his teenage son and the balancing act of managing his work.
“A lot of people don’t understand I’m a real father. I am definitely in my son’s life. He and I have a lot of conflict… He is dealing with becoming a young adult.”
Garrett was tight lipped about announcing the channel that will be the home for the show. With Rev. Run‘s “Run’s House” off the air, Garrett’s (ahem) show could fill the family friendly reality TV void.
“I can’t have the world raising my son, I can’t have the police raising my son. It is important for me to make sure my son understands key to life.”
In addition to the television series, Garrett released the lead single “Twilight Zone,” (yup, it feels like that right now) off of his upcoming mixtape, The Inkwell 2. He handles the singing while Trey Songz activates his rapper alter ego and joins Future for some bars. The project is expected to drop in July. It should be a classic.
