Getting calls all day about the @bethiphopawards
coming back to Miami in 3 weeks. So let’s talk about the #MusicIndustry
This music industry is no joke! You hot one season, cold next season. They want you to give up. This industry is not build for the weak! I had to fight for years to get noticed. Then for years just to get paid what I deserved to get paid. But what about the Artist? .
When you look at #radioplays
and #mediabase @acehood
has always had a hot hit record every summer since the start of his career. I am proud to have helped him at the beginning of his career and over the years. I remember our first promotional tour in Tallahasee - and calling mixers all over the country from @djkhaled
Office telling them @acehood
is the next artist. Can’t wait to see what’s next. .
Flash back to the day that @whoissteviej
told me outside of oxygen “Yo Lex I think I want to start dj’ing. “ he had my support. I looked at him and said do it. Can’t lie, people did not see or understand what he had planned. But he was so focused. He beat down doors that were not open. Now he is on top! Residency’s all over the US and traveling internationally! That’s not by luck. .
got in the game. They said his music was street Music. They said that he was doing mixtape music. When he moved to miami, I was able to sit in the studio with him a few nights, introduce DJ’S to his new artist @blacyoungsta
- I looked at @keonn55 @pressplay_ent
- and said “if this crazy Artist is who you’ll want to push I’m with it (😂that Artist Crazy 😂) Now look at the CMG brand growing and @blackyoungsta
stay on the #billboardcharts
Now when it comes to working in the music industry. Whether you want to be on the executive side, behind the scenes or the artist. You have to be mentally ready, and mentally strong. This industry is not for the weak! But If you are serious about it! “All you have to do is outwork everyone else”- GUCCI PUCCI
