    How to be a Player in the Game of the Recording Industry Tip 4/07/2014: It’s Never About You, Except….

      This one might get a little confusing so please follow along. Some of you have lost your way. You are making music that you “think” others want to hear based on the perception of what is currently being played on radio, in the clubs and what you are programmed to watch and see in videos and television. The people you see doing music are on a much larger scale than you. They have promotional machines behind them. They have […]

    How to be a Player in the Game of the Recording Industry Tip 03/05/2014 Black and White

      The is not a race post. When I say black and white and in reference to the recording industry, those term apply to some very critical information… IS IT ON PAPER! White paper, black words, with your signature in preferably black or blue ink. We, Hip Hop people, seen to run from the notion of having things “official” with signed documents. But the fact of the matter is, if you do NOT have something in writing in THIS industry, […]

    This one is strictly for those of you that plan on having a music career and you are expecting an income tax check. Don’t blow it! I know those new Jordans look nice or those new Kobes would make a nice addition to your collection but before you start splurging on those ACCESSORIES you might want to stop and look at the NECESSITIES. Aside from you paying in bulk for household expenses and catching up on a few bills and […]

    How to be a Player in the Game of the Recording Industry Tip 01/22/2014 “the next”

    Today’s tip is dedicated to you label execs and recording industry personnel out there. I get a LOT of music sent to me daily. From time to time someone will call me based on the information that I put in my videos and ask for some advice. One of the consistent topics that come up is “the next”. You guys are looking for “the next” Migos, “the next” J Cole, “the next” Kendrick. I realize to some it is just […]

At any given moment […]

    How to be a Player in the Game of the Recording Industry Tip 01/15/2014 No Dollar$? No sense…

    Aint shit “free” in this game. Let’s get that out there first. As much as we try and put the wheels in motion, the oil that makes these moving parts in the engine is an expendable resource that we all call ‘money’. When it runs out, just like in a car, you motor will lock up and it will NOT move until it is thoroughly lubricated once again. You need to start looking at where you will get your oil […]

    How to be a Player in the Game of the Recording Industry Tip 01/14/2014 Legacy!

    Today’s post might be a little somber because I lost someone that I knew today. As I sit back reflecting on our interactions I know that they were not all great. We bumped heads a couple times and a few times he had me arrested (I deserved it, lol). But all of this has me thinking… What is his legacy? Or to put it directly back at you, what will be YOUR legacy? Where you are in your career, what […]

    How to be a Player in the Game of the Recording Industry Tip 01/13/2014 There is a “M” & an “E” in team.

    I know you have heard the age old cliché, “there is no “I” in team. True But there is an “m” and an “e” in it and that spells ME. I am not being overly objective and sparking a revolution or some sort of confliction. This is not something to use as motivation to buck the system…no. This is merely a reminder of YOU being YOU. In every team or crew, we all have a role to play. Some minor […]

    How to be a Player in the Game of the Recording Industry Tip 01/10/2014 $$Budget$$

    Budget, Budget, Budget! You probably hear that a lot in the game. Usually it is in the context of you asking for services provided by someone else and the instant reply is “do you have a budget?” now depending on how you reply, that could go one of two ways… Either the asker is seeing how much money they can get out of you (normal) OR The asker is seeing if you have planned that far ahead (industry insiders). It […]

    How to be a Player in the Game of the Recording Industry Tip 01/09/2014

    10 Days! FACT: Ninjas are simple. Really. People have a 10 day attention span, look it up; its in the bible. On day 11, they are on to the next, but from 1-10 they will be in the crack of your ass trying to smell what you had for breakfast. WE live in a reality tv/social media era, people are nosy. Now that you know this little fact, you need to put together a promotional calendar where you do something […]

    How to be a Player in the Game of the Recording Industry Tip 01/08/2014

    Respect it! I catch a lot of slack because when I give feedback I do not hold back my opinions. They come out with no filter. I do NOT believe in sugarcoating. I don’t hold back because I feel like by the time you present material to the world (especially to me) it needs to be presented and treated as if it is the best work you have ever done. That is not normally the case. When I hear half […]

    React, Respond, Repeat! Many of you are some ungrateful sumbitches. Let me explain… If you know someone is giving you a shout-out, it is your duty as an artist to at least REACT in some sort of way with a RESPONSE and REPEAT the process. Some of you actually do it. Some of you actually take the time to reply to every @ on Twitter, thank those who like your images on Instagram, and do some sort of social reaction […]
