As much as it’s about being humble, NOBODY competes to be second. Your thought process has ALL OF THE POWER In how you approach anything, how you handle it and ultimately its outcome. If I allow myself to believe that I’m not the best at what I do, then I might as well get used to silver and bronze. “Cogito ergo sum!” ~ René Descartes .. “I think, THEREFORE I AM!” #Message#Life#Music#MusicBusiness#Marketing#DigitalMarketing#Business#STRIVE

G.O.O.D. Music Out This Summer: -
Kanye West returned to Twitter last Friday (April 13) and a week later, is dropping all kinds of exciting news. He promoted a new line of Yeezy shoes, shared inspirational words of wisdom with his fans and announced four new albums under his own label, G.O.O.D. music.
Pusha T is first on the batting plate, with his album out May 25. Pusha T had been teasing the highly-anticipated King Push album since last year, and the new music will mark his first studio album since 2015’s King Push: Darkest Before Dawn. West hopped on one of the record’s tracks, “M.P.A.,” along with A$AP Rocky and The-Dream.
Following T’s release, West himself will be releasing his own project on June 1. While the tweets were brief (7 words total), he did note that the record will have 7 tracks. The record follows the hip-hop mogul’s smash hit album Life of Pablo from 2016.
West will then be collaborating with his on-again, off-again pal Kid Cudi. Their joint effort, Kids See Ghost, is scheduled for June 8. Cudi was signed to G.O.O.D. Music back in 2008, and the two collaborated on a few songs together, including “Erase Me” and “Make Her Say (I Poke Her Face).” They got in a bit of a scuffle in 2016 after Cudi slammed West on Twitter, but they seemingly made up a year later when Ye joined Cudi onstage during a November show in Chicago.
Lastly, Teyana Taylor will release her sophomore album on June 22, which is a follow-up to her 2015 album VII. Pusha T and Chris Brown were among the major names featured on the record.

So many DJs are members of multiple DJ Coalitions but are no further in their careers. What's the point of joining a coalition if You are not using it as a tool to elevate Your career? You are reppin' names that are not helping You build Your DJ rep'. In Your email signatures or IG bios it's /// filled with different DJ crews and coalitions. To me it doesn't make business sense to be a part of more than one coalition cause it looks as if a DJ has no direction and just trying to be down with anything just to be put on. A coalition to me is like a Greek organization. You shouldn't be able to join a group of the same theme. You cant be a Kappa and A Sigma or a Delta and an Aka. It's about loyalty, exclusivity and pushing that brand forward. I could be wrong though.
Using Instagram Stories: Reveal Sneak Peeks in stories
Sneak peeks of what's coming up is perfect for instagram stories. These little bites provoke interest and enhance the connection between you, your projects and your fans.
I have used stories to promote music videos on youtube, projects outside the instagram app, blog posts and all kind of write stories I'm working on about artists and entrepreneurs .
I've also used stories for live streams and little video messages that don't need to be in my main feed. I've found that this is a great space to drive traffic to the clickable link and also alert people of your front content.
With stories, you have a chance to take your followers (and prospective followers) on a more realistic journey of what's happening in your journey—without the staged and beautified element that the general platform presents on the main 9 of every main account profile.
Posting a rehearsal session in the studio, a moment with your friends, the process of your art, and instrument you love or play or exclusive footage on a video or photo shoot.
The choices are limitless– just think about a significant moment that your audience would normally not get a chance to see.
COOL ANNOUNCEMENT ALERT 🚨:
as of last night I am officially the newest addition to the #FireTower team! like, whaaat? I’m overwhelmed with gratitude + excitement + am celebrating with the ocean 🌊 and unreasonably delicious street tacos 🌮. SO honored to have the insanely driven, freakishly brilliant @instaevan92 (a rep for Epic Records slash music management/production entrepreneur) as my official manager, along with assistance from my girl, the maddd talented @ruthtrumpets (an outSTANDing jazz musician)! *
frenz, we all have to remember — especially when life is so freaking scary, when our chests hurt from the anxiety — things don’t work out for a reason. I’ve had more no’s and slammed doors than I’ve publicized. I’ve cried harder than anyone knows (lol seriously y’all, the tears have been real). But now I lie here looking at this picture, with clarity for daiizzzzz — all the no’s and not-yets were pointing directly to this yes. 💫 *
ya gotta be the Simba of your own story. he was afraid out of his little lion brain, but still faced what he knew to be his purpose. *
look out at what you want.
stare it down.
and make it there.
whatever it takes — make it there. *
it’s mountain-moving time. ⛰
