Alphonse Philippe Mouzon, aka rapper 'Mouzon', was born on July 12, in Los Angeles, CA to attorney Linda Ledesma-Mouzon and legendary jazz-funk musician/composer Alphonse Mouzon. At 6 years old Alphonse Philippe landed a part in the 1987 hit movie 'Lethal Weapon' starring Mel Gibson, Danny Glover and Gary Busey. He was the cute little boy with the blonde hair and blue eyes during the fire truck scene. Now that Lethal Weapon is on DVD and TV, you can see Alphonse Philippe frequently. Also that year, he did a Nintendo commercial called 'Combat Basketball' videogame and performed on stage with his famous dad and brother Jean-Pierre Mouzon at the Los Angeles Forum playing percussion. Rapper 'Mouzon' attended Sierra Canyon and Chaminade Private schools before attending Granada Hills High School and graduating from Chatsworth High School. He has a BA in TV/Film production from CSUN and currently a director, cameraman and video and film editor, when he's not rapping and performing on stage. On September 3, 2009 rapper 'Mouzon' performed on stage in San Diego at 'Anthology' with his sister/singer Emma Alexandra Mouzon and dad/musician Alphonse Mouzon to raise money for Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontiers. 'Main Attraction' is the awesome debut CD from the hottest new rapper around. 'Mouzon' wrote all of the lyrics on the CD, while his 13 year old sister Emma Alexandra Mouzon sang on 7 songs; Philippine singer Sharon Tanyag sang on two songs and his dad Alphonse Mouzon, Sr. composed, arranged, sang, performed on all of the instruments and produced the music. The music flawlessly bridges the gap between jazz, rock, funk, dance and hip-hop. 'Main Attraction' was mixed and mastered by fame engineer Michael Vail Blum (Madonna, Michael Jackson, Kenny Loggins, Pink Floyd, Roger Daltrey, Kelly Clarkson, etc). Besides the extremely funky and danceable and hypnotic songs on 'Main Attraction', the lyric have auspicious and positive messages and very uplifting and is not misogynistic towards women. Everyone from 8 years to 80 years old will enjoy and appreciate the music and wholesome lyrics on 'Main Attraction'.
