Free Ebooks are better than an MBA

4 Oct

Free Ebooks are better than an MBA.

Yes, you read that correctly.

My wife was in the hospital this whole week. And being the dedicates partner she deserves- so was I. I’m not tooting my own horn, by no means. I am blessed to havea dedicated partner so I in turn am fully dedicated to her.

The below image shows some of the business ebooks I downloaded for free while she slept. I am a voracious reader, devouring books like so many penny candies (I was born in 1980 when this was a thing, don’t judge me). So I’m always on the lookout for free, quality reading material.

And without further ado:

-Where you from?
I’m From The Bx.

-Age?
32.

-How did you get in the game?
I started promoting records to the DJ’s for Sadaday & 5*4*20 Records.

-What made you embrace your position? When I started doing Scurry Life Dvd, it got me into the labels & I started meeting Major Artist.

-What keeps you in your position?
My constant grind.

-What are your secrets to success?
Staying on my grind everyday. Haven’t had a day off in 5 years. I’m on my Can’t Stop! Won’t Stop! Atleast until I get my infinity pool! Lol! 

-What don’t you like in the game?
I don’t like when certain people in charge force feed you wack artist.

-What do you like in the game?
I like how the game changed. With all the promotional & social networking sites you have more opportunities to promote yourself.

-What would you change in the game?
Just the truthfulness of it! Just because a certain artist makes a track everybody says that’s hot when they know deep down inside it’s just mediocre. If it’s just mediocre I’ll say it!

you invest in?
My damn self! Lol!

-What are your thoughts on 360 deals?
It’s good! Depends on the artist I guess! Records aren’t selling the way they use to. You’re lucky if you can go gold the first week. So in a way the labels have to be able to recoup the money they put out & their not doing it on sales.

N.W.A. & Biggie made me fall in love with Hip Hop. I’m married to the Game! I eat, sleep & breathe this sh!t.

Doing what I love & getting mucho bucks for it.
