Simply put… I am a REVOLUTIONARY… Messenger of Truth. Time to gather knowledge and break the chains of slavery of the mind.

FreeStylitry is a concept based upon words displaying emotions in poetic form in an instant…. I write poetry… I am not a spoken word poet, but I have challenged myself to spill my emotions into freestyle poetry at the time it hits me… FreeStylitry captures the essence of my emotions in creativity. I hope it touches someone.

OK…. with all of the talk that’s going on about the beef between Nicki Minaj and Lil Kim… do you think Kim handed Nicki her ass on this track? And uuuuuuuh check that pose… is that not another bad ass Kim Pose… I wonder if Nicki will try to do that one too or has she learned her lesson…. Nicki should become a vegetarian because she doesn’t digest BEEF very well.

Take a listen…. YOU TELL ME!

97.6 BreakIt! Radio HIP HOP Music Fest (Networking Opportunity)

97.6 BreakIt! Radio HIP HOP Music Fest (Networking Opportunity)

“Your Network determines your net worth” is the most powerful statement I have ever read in business.  I worked for one of the top accounting firms, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and my focus in the Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) department consisted of writing winning proposals. In writing proposals one of the keys to being successful at it is doing your homework – clear, concise research.  I found in my position I was always faced with this question while doing my research – who is doing well in the market right now?  Then I was faced with the second question – who is doing better?  The bottom line became how will it benefit he who is doing better to collaborate with he who is doing well and how do I convince them to come together?  To understand this concept you have to know that M&A doesn’t always happen because a company is failing and the only way for them to survive is to be bought out or combined with a company that is doing much better in the market. M&A also takes place between companies that are doing extremely well. Why?  Corporations have recognized when they combine their efforts and strategies they can grow rapidly in their industry.  That goes back to that age old concept that two heads are better than one.  When you make a collaborative effort with another organization you increase your man power, your talent pool, your resources, your strategies, etc.

So what do words like network, net worth and collaborative efforts have to do with Independent Music Artists and Labels? It’s a clear concept and I am sure most have figured it out already, but figuring it out is not the key. The key is actually doing it! If your network of people that you do business with in this industry is solid, on point and running in the same direction as yours and if your network compliments your business, you have the makings of a powerful team.  You have to align yourself with individuals who share the same dream and drive. When you collaborate with people who are on that same page you increase your visibility and opportunities tremendously.

So often, we forget that it takes a team of people to build success and we try to do it on our own… all alone. That method gets you nowhere fast. First, we have rid ourselves of the attitudes that we don’t need anyone to be successful in this industry. Once we realize the benefit of working with others, it is time to put it into action. Utilize every opportunity you encounter to network with others. You never know what relationships will build from there. When you show support for others in this industry, if you have made careful selections and screened properly, you will find that they will return the favor.

Imagine for a moment all of the major success stories and think of how they formed a network and collaborated together to build in this industry.  Just to name a few Jay Z, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Drake and Common. Somehow all of these individuals found ways to collaborate and build with others and even one another. When you hear one person dropping something the other is featured and then a piggy back follows with the featured artist’s new album. Old game… and guess what it’s still the same. If we think on a local level, I will use Houston because that’s where I currently reside; Wreck Shop collaborated with many artists and non-artists to create a buzz for their company. They generated some buzz through Fat Pat; however, they capitalized on that buzz by dropping a movie, The Dirty 3rd.  In doing that movie they worked with a lot of people in the Houston and surrounding areas to make it happen – from Slim Thug all the way to the camera crew, actors and actresses.  A lot of people may not know that there was never a script for that movie. However, Wreck Shop worked together with all involved in the movie to come up with lines, shots and strategies for the movie. Seemingly the movie was low budget, but it served its purpose. It created a huge buzz for Wreck Shop Records at that time.

In saying that, I will also say when you create these opportunities continue to nurture and grow them because just as easy as it is to blaze the scene and create a huge visible force, it is just as easy to turn the lights off on your success. Stay determined, focused and never lose the drive, hunger and passion for your craft!

With the recent loss of my grandmother, a friend told me to keep PUSHING…. Today hearing the words in the letter my grandmother left for us is confirmation that MY GRANDMOTHER would want me to keep PUSHING this MOVEMENT. Everything about this MISSION is what she instilled in me as a little girl… LOVE… UNITY… FAITH. I have FAITH that we can do what some deem to be the impossible. We have seen it already… people coming together as family… the display of love and respect…. and faith in this MOVEMENT by so many people. WE are ALL PUSHING the MOVEMENT!

As I share this Interview/Conference call that I had with Brandon Tha Politician Glaspie of Prison Youth Radio, I am remembering that I am who I am because she was who she was to me. I am my GRANDMOTHER… My grandmother is ME! ~Chozen Marie/Vince Most’Wanted
