you tell us about your new venture Mixtape Movies?
I got together
with Draze a couple of years ago and this kid has talent. We started talking
about the music game and taking his stuff to the next level. We came up
with Mixtape Movies. "Trading Places" is the first one. It's
real big. We're excited about bringing a new sound to Hip Hop. Draze is
going to be the new face of New York and Seattle.
you describe Mixtape Movies for everyone who hasn't seen it?
I would say
Mixtape Movies take old classics like "Scarface" and you put
a new song over it. It's a clever way to put everything together.
you want to do this?
are really just the next step for everything we've been doing. Draze had
a bunch of great songs and we had to come up with a new way to hear them.
do you see Mixtape Movies going in the future?
I see it
having its own station like MTV.
getting involved in any other Hip Hop ventures?
got my mind and my hands in things. I know several people in the game
like Mario Winans. I'm not a rapper or a singer. I just enjoy seeing people
challenge themselves and try something new. I connect people together.
some similarities between football and Hip Hop?
I think the
biggest similarity is that there are always people working hard to become
the best and no one ever stays the best. The best keep on working and
getting better and changing the game. There are guys with talent and there
are guys with less talent but a lot of drive.
are your teammates by Hip Hop?
I think there
are always a couple of guys on every team freestyling for fun. I don't
think they want to take it to a professional level.
have any plans to start a record label?
If I did
start a label, it would definitely be after I retire because right now,
football is my first job and I have to stay focused on that.
hard telling who your friend is and who wants to use you for money?
No. I didn't
change my stable. People have to go through the ringer to get to me.
did it feel to see Seattle step up and keep you?
to be in Seattle and they knew that. My family is there and we have a
great team that we've put together.
your offseason going?
a lot of good times. With the MVP, it kind of takes it to another level.
critics finally be silenced now that you're an MVP?
I don't think
that the great players ever silence the critics. Even Emmett Smith, who's
broken all the records, they still argue if he was the best. Back in the
day, they were saying he was too small to win a Super Bowl. The critics
jump on you no matter what. Until I retire, I probably won't get the great
even pay attention to the critics?
I don't pay
attention to nobody. For me, I want to be a great running back and get
better. You set your goals before the season and then you go after them.
your goals for next season?
To get better
from last year. That's been my goal for the past five years.
still sounds a little heated about the officiating during the Super Bowl.
How do you feel about the officiating in the Super Bowl today?
I'm a winner,
so I'm never going to feel good about losing the Super Bowl. I think we'd
be giving too much credit to the referees if we said we lost only because
has never given the Seahawks a lot of respect. Is that going to change
I think we
earned respect towards the middle of the season last year when we started
knocking off the big teams. We have one goal for next year, and that's
to end the season with a win in Miami.
is family to you?
is the second-most important thing to me. Faith is one, and football is
hard balancing your time during the season?
balancing my time. I'm pulled in every direction from doing things with
my family, doing things with my church, doing things with my team
always going to have a plan because if you don't have a plan, you'll fall
for anything. I just stay focused on what I'm doing.
you want to say to everyone?
Go to MixtapeMovies.com

If you've got a family, love them like crazy.
