I have received a lot of flack regarding my latest endeavors and advancements. I sat yesterday and even thought about WALKING AWAY and just becoming a fan again. Unbeknownst to me my savior and closest thing to a best friend I have in my life B-HARD reached out to assist me with my struggle. I don’t agree with a lot of things that happen in the music industry but I will speak on that later. I decided to post this so that people would STOP thinking I’m unloyal and being a traitor or whatever else they decide to feel in private and will never say to me. It seems to me people feel as if I owe them something and truly I don’t. All of what I do is different nothing really intertwines EXCEPT me helping an artist. I always try to remain positive and keep the ball rolling regardless of. I have a few announcements that will be coming in the near future so keep your eyes open. I always say I don’t do anything when in fact my true gift is me being knowledgable and resourceful. I should be proud of that right?? My main goal is to give artists a voice and an outlet when others won’t. Please stop preaching to me about the money I need to swindle out of people and how far you think I should be by now. Hell I’ve only been attempting to blog for a year! I’m not a writer/journalist but I know about music! Give me time! I have so much to learn and educate myself on. What I have learned thus far is that people think there is some type of magic formula to this. What I do is support people who in turn support me I know it seems like it should be more complex but it’s not. Outside of that the only explanation for me doing what I do is that I love music. GET IT? GOT IT! GOOD?
♥ Thank you B and Meechie I promise I would have made a few foolish decisions based on emotion had it not been for you two. ♥
S/O to Big Pup ,A-1, EP, and Murk of ThaPhoundation as well for being so supportive and encouraging!
