I HAVE BEEN ON THE RUN BUSY TRYING TO STAY AHEAD OF THE RAT RACE WE CALL HIP HOP. ALOT OF GREAT THINGS ARE HAPPENNING AND AS USUAL ALOT TERRIBLE THINGS ARE HAPPENNING. I AM SURE YOU GUYS HAVE HEARD ALL OF THE RUMORS AND RIDICULOUS STORIES. I AM SORRY I HAD TO COME BACK TO THE BLOG WITH THIS BULLSHIT BUT HERE WE ARE. NO I DIDN’T GET ATTACKED. NO I DIDN’T SEE MY BROTHER GET ANY STITCHES LET ALONE 103. YES I AM TIRED OF ALL OF THIS BULLSHIT AND IN PARTICULAR PROPOGANDA OF THE NEGATIVE SORT. I AM ABSOLUTELY SURE MY CLIENT 50 CENT ISN’T INVOLVED. I AM SURE THAT WE WILL INVESTIGATE AND GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS MATTER. I AM SURE THE PRESS WILL CONTINUE TO PROP UP THE BULLSHIT BUT I CANNOT STRESS HOW WE DON’T CONDONE ANY VIOLENCE IN THE NATURE THAT HAS BEEN DESCRIBED. I WILL CONTINUE TO SUPPORT MY CLIENTS. IF YOU DON’Y KNOW WHO THEY ARE CHECK OUT WWW.VIOLATOR.COM . I HAD A FRIEND CALL ME AND SAY THEY ARE TRYING TO DRAG ME BACK INTO THE DARK SIDE OF HIP HOP AGAIN. I SAID I WON’T LET IT HAPPEN. YOU HAVE SEEN OUR PRESS STATEMENTS , YOU HAVE SEEN THE BEEFS, YOU HAVE SEEN THE SENSELESS LOSSES THAT WE HAVE HAD IN HIP HOP. I WILLNOT CONDONE ANY VIOLENCE. I AM A BUSINESS MAN IN THE BUSINESS OF BRANDING MY MUSIC AND EXPANDING HIP HOP. THE CHAOS AND MAYHEM WILL DESTROY HIP HOP. WE HAVE A FORCE OF PEOPLE IN HIGH POSITIONS LOOKING TO BRING HIP HOP DOWN. I AM TRYING TO KEEP IT ALIVE. MAKE A DECISION PEOPLE TO DISCERN WHAT IS ENTERTAINMENT , WHAT IS REALITY AND WHAT IS FICTION. WE HAVE TO LIVE AND ABIDE BY RULES NOT THE CHAOS AND MAYHEM HIP HOP IS IN RIGHT NOW. STOP HATING ON THE NEXT MAN. I WILL BE BACK BUT HOPEFULLY ON A BETTER NOTE AS THIS ISN’T WORTH THE ENERGY OR ATTENTION I JUST GAVE IT LET ALONE ALL OF THE PRESS. LETS STOP CONTRIBUTING TO THE CHAOS AND MAYHEM. THIS ISN’T ROME WE DON’T NEED TO SEE BLOOD. WE HAVE THE WWF FOR THAT. THIS ISN’T HIP HOP.

Where is the swagger? Where is the entertainment? I took a minute to put this blog up because I love hip hop and I didn’t want this to feel like I was hating on the south. I love hip hop from everywhere but New York is my home and lately I have been wondering what happenned? We haven’t went platinum since 50′s last album as a city. I think Busta but up one of the best albums of his career and we missed the platinum. We got the gold but feel short at platinum. While we are shoulder leaning which I love we are also “Ballin” but we aren’t entertaining enough to bring the platinum back home for some reason. My opinion is that we aren’t entertaining. Banks(gunit) is giving us the new york point of view lets support. love him or hate him Papoose is entertaining the kids. check out his myspace numbers. Love him and Hate him but I will be the first to say it if you rappers aren’t entertaining me the way “Diddy’s” new album is than thats part of the problem. I need to say diddy is by no means a rapper but he is an entertainer and that is what makes his album entertaining and fun to listen to!!! Let the hate come my way I am sure I will hear it for this statement but hey something is missing and its the entertainment factor!!! f your not making me laugh,dance or say noone kills that many people(uncle murder) than I amnot being entertained!! New york the flows are cool but before you flow off the album Entertain!!!

We saw greatness past away in the last part of 2006 with the loss of “Gerald Levert” and also one of the founding fathers of hip hop even though we don’t always acknowledge him “James Brown”. James played to his own drum and then allowed hip hop to borrow it!! Lets continue to make a funky drummer out of the new records and sounds inspired by his greatness. I look foward to making new trails and the impossible possible for our culture. See you in the 007!!!



THE MUSIC BUSINESS IS NOT FOR EVERYONE.

It has been a minute since my last blog but I am back with a few topics that I felt relevant enough to share at this level. The title really says it all for me. I have tell you I always meet people and even have family members that think just because I am in the music business so should they be and why aren’t I giving out the free handout. This is a business and despite all the glamour and glitz there are people really breaking their necks on an individual and team basis.I have 16 to 18 hour days and try to juggle my business,a wife,a family and people think it is easy. The best is when my friends from the hood decide this is their new meal ticket and don’t understand why they aren’t rolling in the dough and take offense when they aren’t being catered to as if they were a client and not someone trying to get on. I am very grateful to be in this business as something interesting is always going on and we are at a crossroads where the expansion of our business whether thru the digital realm or the brand marketing angle are creating new opportunities and income streams. That being said everyone should chase their dreams but remember it is up to you to make your dreams come true. The next man or woman shouldn’t have their career used as your personal spring board. You have to find your lane and make it work!!!! Next blog: New york hip hop and the new york state of mind. stay tuned
