Derrion Albert : Unknown In Life, Famous in Death as A Martyr of City Youth

Now as I'm writing this.... I'm listening to Tupac & Scarface's Smile...and next on play is Tupac's Changes.
Watching this video of inner city teens senselessly beat each other...and attack people who had no involvement with what happened previously that sparked this fight.

Now I graduated High School almost 3 (three) years ago...and I lived in Los Angeles, graduated from Inglewood High School (Yes the Infamous Inglewood)...and miraculously only 3 people died during the 4 years I was in High School ( Maybe it was because I only went to school down there for 2 years?) One girl died my freshmen year from lupus ( a disease ) , sophomore died. Junior Year a boy got shot in a arguement.... and Senior year a guy I knew who had graduated a year before me got stabbed after a dice game and died ( sad thing is someone who was his friend did it, and left his body in an alley by my cousin's house)
None of them should of died...Especially at the hands of someone else. No-one has the right to take another person's life.

Since I've been out of school I've noticed that the kids younger than I have simply gone out of control....and it's shocking as hell to me. How could there be such a drastic change in only a few years difference in age? These kids are the same age my sister & brother who are 16 and 17... I have siblings that arent even in their teens I'm even more concerned as to where the hell the youth of urban areas ...and America period are headed.

I mean....gang banging was around before my generation...and their's arguably ( some consider them a new generation)..Heck my father is a Founder Inglewood's Neighborhood Piru (NHP)....
when I moved down to L.A during the summer before Junior year all I ever heard in our down time from running around the city doing family things and taking all 4 of my siblings to school were my father's stories of him and the homies.
He never really glorified it....He was just reminiscing about his childhood & the age when he met my mother. He made one thing clear, they started their gang to protect themselves from other gangs who'd try to force them to join, and then beat them up and rob them ( how could they force you to join...and then fucking rob you?). Now a days...these kids make gangs just because they think it's cool. He also said...he regretted some of his hot tempered ways. He said the only good thing that resulted from it was him meeting his best friend, my mom and then Myself and my siblings being born ( Had he not of been a gang banger strolling down Inglewood avenue one day , he probably would of never met my mom, they never would of later divorced, then he never would of met my step mom and had my other siblings).

When I was a Senior...there was this clique of kids...who claimed not to be a gang....( Ha yea right) but they wore red...would beat up kids who belonged to other cliques , they'd put people on ( Jump Them In ) said the infamous "Blood" word and called themselves the Murder 1's. Long story Inglewood High...and the city Of Inglewood period...the biggest gang is Inglewood Family Gangsters.....and the murder 1's later were forced to join them.

I just don't understand why people feel it necessary to start and join gangs today?? We're not living in the same helpless era our parents were. They didn't have teen shelters,job-corp, out-reach centers, community centers and urban leagues like we do to help with these problems.
Alot of our parent's generation didn't have much a of choice but to sell drugs...They might even have had a parent on drugs ( My cousin Giesla's mother was addicted to cocaine &crack cocain for several years) They spent more time with my mom ( their cousin) and our grandmother as kids than anywhere else...
Then there are other scenarios such as my father's. My dad's mother was a very very VERY successful single parent. She had my father at 16 in St.Louis and moved to California in the 70's to work....scored a great job with Pacific Bell Telecommunications company and even got her Master's Degree while raising my father and his younger brother...and they didn't live in an apartment. SHE HAD A HOUSE! ...My father my opinion gang banged to be around older male figures to fill the void of a father figure in his life... I mean my dad knew where his father was...but was never ever to get in true contact with him....(not his fault)

Now I am the classic example of a kid who didn't have their father around much...and could have turned out wild. HOWEVER ....I didn't...growing up I saw the cycle of rebellion friends, family and people I didn't even know at school...and I decided I didn't want to be a part of that. That type of behavior is destructive, nothing good comes from it at all.
I devoted my high school years graphic design, soccer, year book staff , photography and the student council... Sophomore year I through a little depression and stopped going to school...pulled myself out of it and got back on track. Sure Junior & Senior year I more after school classes than I had pimples but who cares...I handled it without resulting to ignorant ass behavior.

I just can't remotely find an excuse for why people behave like this in 2009...
there's just too many options for people nowadays to not have to result to these animalistic...tactics of " resolving" things.
The saddest part is will only get worse...things always hit rock bottom before they get better.

I think Derrion Albert is going to be the most memorable victim of this kind of violence...because people always hear about these kind of things happening but never has it ever been showed to them. People watched that video and saw his life slip away from his body.....People saw and watched those same kids who killed him run off and senselessly attack others...
To me Derrion Albert has become a Martyr for Teens who are Victims of this Youth Crisis...called Gangs Violence.

My prayers go out to the Albert family...
My heart goes out to all teens & kids in America....
When I was a little kid I used to worry about dying when I was older...
Kids now a days worry about dying when they're 13 and walking home from school...sitting in class...or anything. It's sad, and there's not much else I can say really...

Balance Interview

Ok so I got hit with a little bit of good luck & love. Balance ( One of my favorite rappers from nor-cal has agreed to do an interview with me !)
The moment I heard his song can't go.... the lyrics and the beat stuck to me....
I had to find out who's song it was ! So I called KBMB 103.5 The Bomb the local radio station here in Sacramento and they told me who all was on the song.

I looked him and the other artists up...and became an immediate fan...
I love music, especially when it's someone coming up without a major record label backing them...
The interview will be coming soon...But in the mean time...check out his myspace ; blogger and twitter . From everything I've seen He's really interactive with his fans...therefore he has my respect to the fullest. Alot of people when they make it...or think they've made it get cocky and start to distance themselves from those who truly love their music.....

I'm going to close this post with the video to his song " Can't go" Featuring Big Rich , Jimmie Reign ( Chorus Vocals ) , and The Jacka .

Twitter™ the world's newest and most modern weapon : the art of going in

Ok so everyone who has a Twitter™ who is someone on Twitter™...or at least thinks they're someone on Twitter™ has seen or heard of another person bashing,slandering or down right just talking shit about another person on Twitter™.

Things have even gotten to the point where celebrities are trashing other celebrities on their TWITTER™!

We've seen Fabolous go in on Lil Mama for her stunt at the VMAS...
Now tonight I witnessed Trey Songz virtually rip Kia Shine from Kinfolk's sweater wearing ass to shreds. ( Do I even need to copy his twits and post them here?!?!?!!!! )

We've seen people call Kanye West a nigger x's 300,000,000...I've began to think of Twitter™ as a tool of social weaponry....
If you can't call the person and cuss them out,text them and rant....or flat out whoop their ass..what the hell option do you have? Cut their ass ( flame them ) on Twitter™!
It's all the rage honey!

So next time someone pisses you off, dont reach for a gun ( no no,no don't do that'll only lead to jail time and messing up your outfit with blood ) don't haul off and Rick James a bitch ( Slapping is so out of style babe ) ...pull your PDA or cell phone out, or turn on your computer sign into Twitter™ and slap a "# "symbol in front of the person your mad at's name...and roast that bitch shamelessly!

Exlcusive Interview with Drawzilla

Divinity:What's the meaning behind your name?I'm Curious.
Drawzilla:Basically, I flipped the name concept as to say I draw and big picture when I create records. So Zilla, describes the HUGE illustration of my music. I tell most folks to call me Zilla for short. lol
Divinity: Interesting...that's DEFINITELY different...I like it. It's not just something plain and virtually meaningless like D-RO or LZW & no-one else has it ( I.E: Sean Paul...v.s. Sean Paul of the Youngbloodz)

Divinity: How old were you when you decided you wanted to impact the musical industry? - why?
Drawzilla: I was about 17 when I decided to pursue music but not as a career at first. I was focused on a cooking career at the time but was unhappy. I always had ideas of taking music more seriously but never had an outlet. I slowly started meeting some established people in the business and found a lane to dedicate myself to it. I geniunely just love music so that's the reason why I chased the dream. I didnt make any real money until years later, it was all for the love of the art. Now, I'm a record producer full time and have a licensing deal with VIACOM that keeps me afloat. Ascap sends checks for the music I have placed on MTV, VH1, etc shows.

Divinity:How did you begin to pursue it?
Drawzilla: I really reached out to as many people I knew that was in the industry. I started attending music seminars to educate my self and to network. I found my current entertainment attorney at a music conference in NYC. I built a home studio and focused on creating records for up and coming artists and a few in my hood. Once I found a team, and aligned myself with my business partner, it made things a lot easier to take it seriously. I had support and a backbone and ran with that.

Divinity: In 5 years were would you like to see yourself in this business?
Drawzilla: I see my myself running a successful production company, signing producers, artists, and writers exclusively and having distribution with a major parent company. Im honestly half way there. I just have to continue networking and make powerful records as well as placing them to major recording artists.

Divinity: What's your spin on the major label artists v.s. underground ones?
Drawzilla: Major record companies only focus is to make revenue. There is no development or creative directors any longer. Artists nowadays have to come to the table with a buzz to even be considered by a major. They are not investing hundreds and thousands of dollars in any marketing plans without a track record of the artists first. So basically, a business plan has to be presented to the majors to insure themselves, money will be made in the long run.
Independent labels have the relationship with the artist and do all the things majors would do but on a lower scale to build the artists up. They control the creative process however incur all costs. They really take the biggest risk but reap the monetary benefits when selling their product. So, if they sell an album via ITUNES etc, they retain the majority of the sale. We are an independent production company. Inasirkl Music Group (IMG) ! We signed 1 hip hop artist named Sic Osyrus from Philadephia !

Mariah Carey f/ LL Cool J " Love you long time" (official remix)
Chrisette Michele
Remy Ma
Capone of CNN
Jae Millz
Tek of Smif and Wessun
Sheek Louch
ETC !!

I really have to say....I'm honored to have had the opportunity to interview him...
I know for a fact..this is someone we will definitely be seeing more of in the music business.
Thanks Drawzilla for a great interview...and giving us insight into what makes you tick :) !
May this be insirpiration to all those who are underground artists ...or underground musical anything!

Recap of tonight's show 9/11/09

Tonight show started broadcasting at 8:30pm PST/11:30pm EST ;the beginning of the show was a memorial segment dedicated to the victims of 9/11 ,all military personal...and the federal officers who now work under the department of homeland security ( which was formed as a direct result of 9/11).
Due to connection problems the show was restarted several times ( sorry guys )..... and upon kicked off into the motivational portion to jump start the weekend with Motivational speaker Myles Miller.

September 11th - 8th year anniversary-Memorial

It's only right...that I say this. Rest In Peace to all the victims of 9/11... May God or what ever religious entity if their families believe in them ...protect and continue to watch over them.
R.I.P to all my Military family &comrads who have perished in this battle...and may the hands of the lord protect and guide those are who still there fighting and bring them home safely and swiftly.

8 years ago... I didn't understand to the full extent just how big an impact the W.T.C. (World Trade Center) Terrorist acts had on my life. Now an adult I see it everyday and I literally mean e v e r y d a y....
In fact 9/11 is the exact reason I have the job I have.
The Government department I'm sworn in under : D.H.S (department of homeland security) wasn't even in existence prior to 9/11.

In high school I always knew I wanted to work for some branch of the government...but this was the last thing I expected.I wanted to go into the military as a military police officer or do military journalism.

Now I'm on the frontlines of a different field...the homeland one. Because regardless to what people think...and see on tv ( which is usually only a dramatized event broadcasted to attract viewers) The Department of Homeland Security is not just T.S.A and C.B.P...
and I'll go even further to inform you..that T.S.A is just not at the airport...nor are its officers "security guards" a common misconception.

I won't get all political on my Music &TV Blog...I just wanted to say something in remembrance of 9/11.

We will always remember

Hold up, stop the track.... [Louchiano]

Have you ever listened to a song...and been like (Lil' Wayne Voice) "Hold up, wait a minute mothaf**ka."???
Well yea...I just had one of those moments, after listening to Louchiano
I don't promote bullshit,nor do I sell it.
So when I said on my twitter I was mad I had never heard of dude till today , I meant that.
It's a shame how there's so much good music out..and SO MANY GOOD ARTISTS putting this music out...but it only is popular in their particular region....

People go on and on about how technology has semi-raped the music industry....but I think it's done more help than anything.
If this was 1996 I'd probably never have found this dude.
The internet is crazy kid....

But back to my point... Louch is hot. This is somebody I look forward to seeing and hearing more from.Especially with that accent.... I keep telling people embrace your regional accents makes a sick illness...translation if you already sound accent is like the polish on it. It makes it even better...In my opinion.

Check out his music if your'e disappointed ( which you won't be ) You can slap me
with a bag of old plantain peels [ Louchiano 's Music ]

The one song I've been working on for the past few days I put together using Reaper..but that gay ass shit ..I couldnt figure out how to put my vocals on it. So I'm beginning to production....=not my thing? Maybe I should just stick to writing and looking cute singing&rapping. Because this production shit is no where near easy...
