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.

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.

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!

He hit the streets like man
Gotta hustle real hard
Put a ring on her hand
He put the ring on her hand
She looked like man
Gotta fool him real hard
Hide the ring on her hand
He said he met her in a closet
Like a leaky faucet
She was running all out
And he wondered what the cause is
She said yeah I use to get molested
My family life was tested
So I hit the street corner
Where they asked me, “Who the best is?”
She looking like me
He looking like see
I can get you out the life
If you trust in me
So she worked the street habit
Said she had to have it
Not talking bout love
But the paper is a habit
In and outta hotels
Outta clothes like fashion
She a runway model
Or street corner has been
She use to run her mouth much
Familiar with the male touch
He thought it was crucial
That he love her like the future
Took her off the street corner
Sat her down for a meal
Said you wanna meet the coroner
She said naw you fa real
He said naw I’m not fa real
But fa real you just might
If you stay on them corners
Giving dome every night
She said don’t judge
You’n know nut’n bout my life
He said yeah you right
But you living real trife
That don’t mean I don’t love you
I been out here showing love too
Watching you for years
Making sure that you safe boo
Watching me for years?
She said it with an accent
New York strong
She said what… was it practice?
Naw just love
Trying to make sure you was safe
Just working up the nerve
To take you out this place
I been hustling real hard
Tryin’a get you up a ring
Since I first approached you
And ain’t had not a thing
Back then you shut me down
Said my paper wasn’t green
No cash all around me
You wasn’t ready for the king
She said what’s the deal
I got money to earn
And you talking all that mess
I done already heard
He pulled out the ring
Talking will you be my wife
I been yo’ body guard
You been living out yo’ life
I been here for you
When yo’ own heart
Really wasn’t
I been real patient
You casting stones at the covenant
Casting stones at covenant?
Naw I really wasn’t
What you talking bout
Men come a dime a dozen
While you been collecting dimes
You shoulda been my wife
Had this ring on yo’ finger
Took six years out my life
To approach you again
Now I got my money right
You gone act like you ain’t know
That you shoulda been my wife
Remember ’82
You told yo’ girl you had a dream
Said you saw yo’ Adam
And you were like his Eve
Tell me you can’t remember
I’m trying to bench you for the team
Not hold the past against you
Wipe the slate real clean
Yo’ girl’s name was Tina
She use to live up the block
Before she left the hood
She put a time on yo’ clock
Said six years from now
I hope you take his hand
He’s already here
Take the ring from his hand
Said take the ring from his hand
Then you was like damn
When I can make this paper
I’on need a ring on my hand
Put the ring on yo’ hand
Baby like damn
Casting stones at the covenant
You shitting on yo’ man
She hung her head low
Then she reached for the ring
Felt herself waking up
Realized it was a dream
In the hotel room
Reaching inside the cabinet
She put the ring on her hand
Just like it was a habit
Looked over her shoulder
Seen her lover laying there
While her husband was at work
And children, daycare
Put the ring on yo’ hand
Was inscribed inside the ring
Cause casting stones at the covenant
Ain’t nothing but a thing
