BE THANKFUL EVERYDAY








EARTHA KITT R.I.P


"Never neglect the little things. Never skimp on that extra effort, that additional few minutes, that soft word of praise or thanks, that delivery of the very best that you can do. It does not matter what others think, it is of prime importance, however, what you think about you. You can never do your best, which should always be your trademark, if you are cutting corners and shirking responsibilities. You are special. Act it. Never neglect the little things."

ATTACK OF THE AUTO-TUNES / RETURN OF THE VOCODER

it started in Euro House / techno and trickled through R&B to clean up imperfections vocal wise so there's no bad notes , but done slightly to where you wouldnt tell ...now it's on to Hip Hop where it's becoming a staple of Hip Hop Hits and basically it has to be displayed for what it is that nothing subtle about it- The Vocoder used by the The Late Roger Troutman who was the Grandfather and now T-Pain the Godfather of this sound has single handedly made every record a hit as for T-pain he was on every top 10 hit last year - it was one point where T-pain owned the radio and ringtones ..so just like any trend that's Winning . others had to catch on and if you have pro-tools and this feature i must say its Fun To try i mean you can be a decent singer and pull it off..so if it works why not.
and i now bring to you Attack of The Auto-Tunes / Return of The Vocoder




IN THE BEGINNING ......










RIP ROGER TROUTMAN YOUR IDEA IS STILL ALIVE

TO EVOLVE PT 2

Visually we have seen black and White TV sets turn into Giant Screen Wall Mounted Plasma TVs





























Music Videos are like motion pictures










- TV sitcoms are now Reality Sitcoms



































-Video Games are Virtual Worlds









the Computer went from Desktop to in our pockets




















and just about everything is turning into HD ( High Definition )... We've seen how the rise of Hip Hop influences the youth ..as being that Adult Figure and promising Recording Artist / Producer / DJ / Actor / Athlete whichever Career we choose we are the Role Models..even though we may not want that role, subconsciously there is those who look up to us to Inspire and Motivate them in the Tough Journey they Travel in LIfe, even if they grow bitter because they aren't as successful in there journey , they feed off from our struggles to our achievements , our Strengths and our weaknesses -
As Artist we evolve , we grow with our listeners and supporters and as we grow we notice the Trends We've set..we gain fans far and wide and as the ones to musically lead them there's bigger messages to instill - its cool to have fun and spazz out on records but also remember put thought in your songs as Messages for the ones who get it .. the biggest question as artist is who's gonna buy my album if i aint talking about what the biggest artist at the moment is talking about ? in actuality everyone don't want the same thing ..if a cereal was named fruity rocks with the same flavor as fruity pebbles but retailed cheaper why would people buy fruity rocks when they can have the real deal for a lil bit more bread ? be original if someone got a formula working don't Imitate it cause about time people are tired of that sound its already outdated..one thing we're blessed with is Ideas and Choices ( not anyones elses Idea or Choice ) - if you keep at it with yout Idea you will open up ears who feel your sound and your message ..stay true to your sound and that will be yours for years to come ..remember there are people listening and Watching and there's also people Copying

Continue to Innovate .

RANDOM THOUGHTS : HISTORY



11-04-2008 UNITED STATES OF AMERICA'S 44TH ELECTED PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA



LOCATION : HARLEM, NY

This is one of the Greatest days in History , despite the Turmoil us the people felt for years and years and bitter feelings of the shorter end of the stick - through Racism, segregation , Poverty and a failed Government on Nov 4th 2008 we felt The Burden drop and our wishes come true..now what this say to many of us coming up is now that Barack Obama is president we have to now work and help our communities and uplift our youth - after seeing his Speech it became clear that he wants us to take the initiative of helping this country - after all we made him our president now lets keep this Momentum moving -
so as i got mad calls and emails about Obama i noticed how much it's affected the world..it has actually made other countries root for us..it made Fidel Castro endorse Obama...all my peoples in Canada are just as amped as us - this has opened up a major door in Motivation - Artist Motivated to Record and put out Great music / Producers ready to put great beats together/ Music Industry Financially getting back in order - it's the Dawn of a new Day and i'm glad to see the people i grew up with and built with witness this - lets keep the Momentum going in a positive direction and get back to work to get this Economy back up

TO EVOLVE PART 1



























Music is Evolving and i'm proud to be a part of this Era , there was a time when 45s was the shit then 12inch and followed by 8 tracks , Cassettes came and went and now CDs are just about joining the Extinction Level - Everyone has an Ipod if not an Mp3 Player or a Phone that handles Mp3s- There was a time when i shopped beats on Cassette and had to Fast Forward to the Next track and what not...now i can send a track anywhere in the world in a matter of seconds - Hip Hop went from Break beats and samples to full out Compositions , Hip Hop will never Die it can only Mutate
when i was growing up it was rare to hear New Music often - alot of us older Hip Hop Enthusiast had a couple of outlets twice out the week tune in Thursdays to 89.1 Martin Moore and Mayhem and followed by 89.9 Stretch and Bobbito thats where you go to hear the new Biggie,Boot camp Click, MOP , Mobb Deep, Jay Z ..thats where u heard the Treats off the album or just out the studio - Freestyles for days..my boy DJ TraJ prolly got all them Freestyles on the low
- but i remember making a Cassette in b4 i went to school and pressing record, with the auto reverse for full tapes..went through so many tapes that had to put tissue in the Commercial Cassettes i copped to record more shows - every week we'll talk about New shit we got off the Radio..but Forwarding ahead now you can subscribe to Sirius/XM satelite and get as much new shit you want and if you really want old or new joints The Blog SItes and Share sites are pushing out very very exclusive records
-Hip Hop has Evolved Musically , growing up learning from our mistakes, tackling issues, perfecting our crafts and outlook We've Evolved
now lets go back ---

Is it me or is the Knicks is playing much better these days - so far 3-3 in the Preseason and handed The Celtics a L and scored over 100 points 5 straight pre-season games
Coach D'antoni i'll know you're a Genius if you can take the Knicks to the Playoffs - you never know
-


Damn Dolemite died....1st time i heard Dolemite was on the Big Daddy Kane Taste Of Chocolate album..where the 2 went toe to toe battling with the most Ignorant Lyrics at that time - i was like this old cat was slick, sounding like an Old Pimp and shit
through hearing that i became a fan of his work and demeanor and he is responsible for alot of Todays Hip Hop Influence- Rest In peace Dolemite

QUICK RANDOM THOUGHTS : 4TH QUARTER


If you take the concept of Basketball and apply it to The Music Grind..u will see that when The 4th quarter comes its Time for the Clutch shots and going for the Win .
- As a Coach you would rest your starters half way through 3rd Quarter and put them in for the 4th Quarter or whoever is contributing to Compete with the rival , with the Line-up this 4th quarter looking real tough we're anticipating Dr Dre and Eminem to re-emerge this 4th Quarter also you got Jay-Z opening the Blueprint series back up with the 3rd one, then you have the Winners of Last Year Kanye West and 50 Cent gearing up for another round of sales and Then you have Ludacris ready to unveil Theatre Of The Mind..while also taking the Acting Reigns in 2 Motion pictures this Quarter (Max Payne , RocknRolla)
and on the R&B side Beyonce looks to Dominate the Year End with T-Pain moving up in the ranks of the Heavyweights
since every record he's on is guaranteed Top 10

- as an insider/outsider we learn from these artist and look forward to Hip Hop Winning on the Charts building momentum for the 1st Quarter and The 2nd Quarter wave of New Artist like Myself..and for looking in we Enjoy watching and listening to artist that inspire us and Entertain us
-
Everyone Pays Attention to The 4th Quarter and everyone who wants to play in the 4th Quarter some day Take Notes

So Until Then We Gonna Slow it Down Like This

RANDOM THOUGHTS : THE GRIND

No matter how you see it we all grind to survive and to pursue Happiness, when you want your own..you have to work hard to get it, when the chips is down you have to be optimistic in getting the chips back up - some are trying to reach the American Dream while there's few that want to get to the root of the Power that runs this System... and then there's those who will stop you by any means so you cannot get those answers or even enjoy your Life a.k.a Haters i checked out M Night Shalaman's The Village a few years back..now when i 1st saw it i seen it as mad corny..but as you sit with the message in your mind i realized ..the Village was founded and made up with rules and procedures and fear to never leave the grounds - so those born would not know the bigger picture - back to reality
think about the Village Concept and think about today's Society -
i'm no one to teach but i'm one to think Logically and use Common Sense..it's more out there then what's in the textbooks
through lies and deception there is a root wherever that root leads understand and be ready for the answer you seek
-
iiight so back in Album Mode .. since pushed back to mid-March enough time to start wrapping it up and starting the Campaign
and applying the Visual..so now the Overdose On Life record is ready to be made into a Video - and should be dope and very Cutting Edge which will definitely set off the Be The Judge Campaign ..Elaborate Musik Orchestra is being formed
and there is talks about possible Distribution
the Grind is Constant..Sleep is Loss..Leisure is non-existent even when you're not recording your thinking of your next step so you mind is still working -
i got this concept a while back thinking about the American Dream and ways to achieve it - THE AMERICAN SCHEME
where you go all out to get to pursue Happiness the american way

shouts to my boy JIGSAW



i fucks wit the new Jeezy album and one song in particular called " CRAZY WORLD" i was fucking with Imovie and came up wit this


Lastly til the next post i leave ya'll with my boy D. Lemon breaking down the SWIPE game

RANDOM THOUGHTS : END OF SUMMER

The Kid is Back 32 Years Later - did some small celebrating for the born day shouts to all the LEOS and VIRGOS
As The Weather slowly drifts into having to wear longer sleeves and jackets - Summer is a wrap and time to prepare to wrap up 2008 with a bang fall is one of the seasons i fucks wit - unfortunately BE THE JUDGE will be pushed back until mid 1st Quarter of 2009
so im back to the the beats and trying to manifest these features - and get these Ideas bubbling , during the course of the album i witnessed a few setbacks and rearranging so things can be worked out - this time has also taught me alot in preparation and what the Hip Hop world needs- a Cult Classic where you have fans believe in your idea and vision without the Machine being involved and start a mass Following all on word of mouth,and its time to give them another one
an Idea is a powerful gift we have to Gain Worldwide Appeal with Substantial Benefits
when we grow up before the Matrix Teaches us how to work their Ideas - we are given the ability to use our imagination
and create new Ideas
i know ..where am i going with this??
before i got into Music i was into Art and Sketching and Comic Book Art was my passion - going to La Guardia High School i had the opportunity of meeting some good people that had Visions and back then Hip Hop inspired us.. to paint pictures Vocally or Musically when it was still kinda in the pre-teen stages it grew with us
our Art was Hip Hop Influenced just like many facets of Culture, showing that an Idea can Grow
now with that one of my peoples from back in the school days recently dropped by the studio and showed His Idea that i think will Influence The Masses and is really Entertaining shouts to my boy Bamm
and this is his Idea



shouts to Poison Pen, Bishop Brigante, Swave and Skyzoo who all was chillin in Studio C-4 aka the New Room in Stadium Red that my boy Ariel (mix engineer,vocal producer) bout to have on Smiddash

and as we begin Fall a.k.a the Grind Season for many reasons be it with Schooling or Xmas saving or the 4th and 1st Quarter releases in music-- the beats will start being constructed and the ideas and songs will be manifested and in anticipation to the Highly Acclaimed Graphic Novel THE WATCHMEN
heres one trailer i went on

R.I.P : ISAAC HAYES


August 20, 1942 - August 10,2008
I can't say how much of a shock this weekend was...1st Bernie Mac left us and Today we Lose one of the sickest Composers/innovators of our time Isaac Hayes leaves us at the age 65 .. I have to say Issac Hayes is one of the main reasons i began Producing and Composing he gave us his soul through his music when the black community was oppressed and hopeless back in the 60s and 70s he created the Theme Music of the streets, growing up to his music since i was born through my pops countless collection of records,45s and 8 tracks (yeah 8 tracks) he inspired me to someday score films and to make elaborate hip hop compositions
his use of strings and hard drums and horns made a staple in the form of soul music - his sound was that of rhythm and blues classical funk - many Artist have sampled the works of Isaac Hayes as he embraced the Hip Hop Community and his sound will live on forever
Isaac Hayes thank you for giving us producers and artist the formula for creating Masterpieces
you'll be missed




Happy Bday in Advance you wouldve made 66

R.I.P : BERNIE MAC


October 5, 1957 - August 9, 2008
He gave this Planet 50 years of his experience, his pain, his Laughter ,his LIfe..and now that his physical is non-existent, his spirit will be here forever.
Gone too soon..i'm still shocked at this loss, Mac was sick for a lil but as we expected his Underdog persona was to come up out of the sickness and make us laugh for years to come ..for he was fighting his own battle which was unfortunately Lost this morning - when someone passes on we have to reflect on the memories and the Joy they brought into this world-
so in honor to Bernie Mac and Condolences to the Mac family here's a Tribute ...you'll be missed

THE RETURN : WEEK ENDING ENTRY # 4

LOCATION : TORONTO/NEW YORK
Back from Toronto , definitely had a good time and linked with good people and the team i run wit out there, shouts to Stone also Cylla ( congrats on that Jim Jones placement)...time to officially make noise out there..also Drake was in the mix and my boys 40 and Oliver as well..Oliver good look on the Ransom get ups for the shoot with Reesee one of the sickest photographers coming up (www.ziggazaggaproductions.com) for a lil shoot i did which should be up soon...the CIty of Toronto was Live..not as Live as previous years but still The Events was a lil retarded out there..my peoples at Maximus put on their Annual event every Caribana that featured Rick Ross and also had between 2000 to 4000 folks in the building so shouts to lil X , Taj , Rahmel and Diggz - it was a wild night and the Ladies was out and looking Phenomenal - shouts to Lola and her girls...also Mercedez and the team who was Extra crazy last weekend..lol
Zaire held it down too with her sexy self, Anaya Hayes made an appearance also the homie Destinee
who brought her fine ass friend Alusha..oh and much love to Chrissy
i enjoyed myself again and definitely will be back in a couple months to follow up on business ventures and more music
Overall there was great energy out there- Music was put on hold for a weekend- which was needed so i can return fresh and ready to make more great music -
so speaking of great music i was stumbling online and seen something kinda interesting it was Michael jackson's Demo of the song " The Girl is Mine" where he says around 2:00 mins in " don't write the song ..let the song write itself .. let everything form itself " ..which was a big Gem from one of the biggest artist of our time and from making great music for years i think we should take that advice ..instead of goin crazy to write a hook or a verse or producing a hot track ..don't think about it...let it just be -

GOOD MUSIC : CONSEQUENCE "DISPERSE"

LOCATION: NEW YORK CITY
I think when you got a vision and the right people around everything falls into place and the energy just feeds off
i remember back in the 90s when ATCQ ( A Tribe Called Quest) was making noise and the movement was electric..The Native Tongue was my shit - i mean i appreciated the art that movement brought to Hip Hop..which is sort of how the new movement of MCs is starting to develop into but its those who remain original that will lead the new school of MCs into the Echelon of Hip Hop Greats -
so as im a young dude back in mid to late 90s im into a vast array of Hip Hop..thats all i listened to all day and all night was Hip Hop - from seeing HOT 97 evolve into the station where Hip Hop Lives, from hearing Biggie 1st record on 89.9 stretch and bobbito to hearing Wu Tang Clan very 1st joint on 89.1
Hip Hop has grown ever since and has become the heart beat of music all over -
now with that said brings me to my boy Consequence - who came on the scene during the prime of Tribe Called Quest and dropped a memorable verse on "Stressed Out" - after the disbandment of ATCQ dude remained active..behind the scenes and in the right circle ..i give him much respect for staying at it and seeing his craft through ..so through the circles i've been linking with trying to link all the circles together and create a strong chain of success i was put on bout Cons through my boy Poly King who was peoples with dude and also my home girl ODESSA who is a actually making a lil noise herself..i'll get back to her in coming days
so she comes to NY and was like she was chosen to be in a video for Consequence called Breakfast of Champions which was real cutting edge vid when it comes to camera work and content
and i was like thats dope..and then after linking with Strings in the studio and also being under the same umbrella with GLC over at REVO MEDIA ..i take a call from Odessa that she doing a new Consequence vid and i should come check it out.so i come through and connect again with Strings also My boy Caleesh aka Poly King and GLC and Cons..who also directs his own vids and co-directed this one with RIk Cordero- the energy was dope and this was the outcome

shouts to Caleesh,Strings,GLC,Odessa,Ashaki,Cons and Sub Con with those Tees

SMALL TALK :

- if you had super powers what would you have the ability to do?

MYAMMEE : Besides snapping my fingers to my own personal make-overs everyday, I
would want to cure all diseases from A-Z. I just lost my mother and I
wish I could have had the powers to keep her here.


- how much time goes into keeping your body in shape,whats your routine?

MYAMMEE :You know what? I don't put too much time into a workout and I eat what
I want, I guess I have great genes.


- the most a guy went out his way to impress you?

MYAMMEE : Well I love to eat. I was taken out to eat at least 2-3x a day. I
never had to cook during the time. I ate good too. LOL


- what music and what song inspires you?

MYAMMEE : I love various of artist mostly RnB and Rap, but at this very moment
what really inspires me is "Never would have made it" by Marvin Sapp.
It is so true! Without God in my life I know I wouldn't be where I am
at today.

Myammee Preciate the time ...

despite the busy schedules from these ladies they show love
so i'll continue to pay homage

SAVE THE EARTH : LUDACRIS VS. TOMMY LEE

Being Part of The RELEASE THERAPY Album was a great achievement - as well as being affiliated with the SSP fam who from day one showed support and that support was returned, not knowing the family ties with Luda..but still kept it a hunnit.
As we connect and venture to do business on all scales the plan is starting to take shape to become Major Players in the Music Industry as well as Entrepreneurs and Humanitarians..you have to start from the ground up
even if it's literally the Ground, which brings me to BATTLEGROUND EARTH: LUDACRIS VS. TOMMY LEE
in a reality Television Series dedicated to Saving Planet Earth, a Battle between 2 teams Ludacris who brought on my boys 4-IZE and Willie Box to join in the Mission and Tommy Lee and his Crew.
Music for a Purpose is always a good look in my books - so Tune in AUG 3RD on PLANET GREEN 10pm EST on TLC

shouts to Ludacris,4-IZE,Willie and Big Al
