Nope, nothing is for certain at all.
Its like literally winning the lottery. What is the probability of that happening?
This is not to discourage anyone, but just bringing to light the reality of music ventures. Let’s just talk plain and simple…………………………………….
Somebody, has to know you! Like forreal know you. Having some buzz on the streets would assist a whole lot, but again, someone that is in a real position to help you has to know you.
And I’m not talking about sexual favors for both males and females. In my personal opinion, I feel like that department is played out. Especially for the ladies who are career minded and the only way to get something is give it up! And 9 times out of 10, you still won’t get anywhere. Its not guaranteed.
The Music world is very dark, very lustful and very shady, all in the same breath.
Its like tossing up a coin 10 times and out of those 10 times, how many of those times will the coin land on heads!?
I wish I had the formula, but really I think the best formula, is no formula. You have to be at the right place at the right time saying all the right things, showing that you are ready and prepared for the new challenges and backing it up with how much richer you can make someone else.
Who wouldn’t want there pockets on swole?
I hope I didn’t run you off! I hope I’m not scaring you. That is not my goal. I like to be honest and upfront with people because I feel like a lot of people, moreso than not, beat around the bushes, are not straight forward. Just ask yourself. Listen to your own self-experiences in the music game. Honestly, what have you been through trying to reach your goal? Its rhetorical!
I’ve heard it many of times, “I could do this, I can get this for you.” and then nothing happens.
I am a songwriter and I love writing songs for both males and females. Its a huge passion. I’m not pushing myself as an artist, but the artist thing is not the easiest thing. It is a literal GRIND. You have to spend your way to the top and most of the times nowadays when you hear someone say that they are an artist, they are looked at as consumers.
Think about it. Its hard to swallow at times but its true. But you can judge for yourself. I’m just bringing to light and raising awareness to those who may not know and to those they may know but need to be reminded.
You can’t get too high and you can’t get too low. You have to stay at an even kill and know what you are going into on a day to day basis.
Nothing is for certain. It is only certain when the money is on the table and you are there physically witnessing it. When that happens and it is in your account, it is certain. ACTION people! An ACTION has to take place in your favor! That is certainty, is it not!!??

I don’t push myself as an artist. Being an artist may be a desire down the road, but my main focus is songwriting, laying down reference vocals, vocal production & vocal arranging.
Many people think its odd for me not to push myself as an artist, but I do have valid reasons. On my music page, I do advertise myself and what I do, but it’s more of promoting the songwriting and vocal skills.
If you didn’t know, I am the face of my songwriting team. So there is the explanation.
Which brings me to the the point of the title. Those who have heard me already know and those who haven’t, perhaps this read will spark interest.
IM WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!! And I mean that in the sense of the Real Talk & NOT the Fake Talk.
I don’t like to go on and on about how cold I am because I let my skills do the talking for me. Most people won’t dare say or put themselves with the likes of some big time artists around the music league, and I won’t say I’m up there with them as far as resume and finances, but I can say that vocally, I can rock with Mary J. Blige, Beyonce, Rihanna, Keri Hilson, Monica, Brandy, Jennifer Hudson, Jordin Sparks etc.
I can dish out the vocals of these different artists. And I’m not being over confident or getting to big for my britches. I’m quite aware of what I’m saying.
Now it’s not enough just to say it. Let me show you. Hit up my Reverbnation Page at Reverbnation
Yes, that is me singing!
Artists and rappers have asked me to sing hooks or do Adlibs and as any quality service does, I do charge a small fee that won’t break the bank on anyone.
I understand where I’m at, but I also understand where my skill set is and it is of very high quality.
People talk big all the time, I know, but out of all the thousands or millions you run into, I’m that one that actually isn’t full of crap.
As you read my blogs and just get to know me as a talented person, you will see that I’m a doer, an action person. People have to see it to believe it. We all know that, but don’t listen to me. Listen for yourself and you tell me.
And you don’t have to hate, I’m not pushing myself as an artist, but offering a service. The artist things Is more of if a project comes around, like a feature or something of that nature, it’s temporary or a short term venture. But no matter what it is, I’m Worth Every Penny! And I’m not going to break the bank, not like the artists with the bigger names.
This thing is all about letting people know, this is how I eat, how I live, how I continue to do what I do. As a creative being, I gotta survive. Many purchase many products from clothes, electronics, gadgets and so forth and a lot of times people will break themselves just to get those things, but don’t see the value of someone’s artistry.
It’s disappointing, but it is the truth. But I’m setting my bar and sticking with it. A skill can not be devalued. That is why I continue to prove myself. You have to, so people can be reminded on just how cold I am at a very reasonable price.
That is all!

I hate to say this, because I don’t really believe in luck.
Luck has never really been on my side.
But unfortunately, fortunately, u gotta get lucky when it comes to this music scene, meaning making it into the music industry. Its a combination of being in the right place at the right time saying and displaying the right things and hitting it on the knob.
Its hard to guess what A&R’s and managers and reputable producers and anyone else along those lines are thinking. Its almost like a mind game or something.
Then, you have to be yourself throughout it all. Not being yourself is all bad. I guess it has to be a natural gift or something. Its just crazy how it all works.
Its one of those things where, you have to depend on a coin being thrown up in the air and you’re praying that it lands on heads rather then tails. Lol.
And all the while, you have to continue to develop and master your craft to adjust to the trends, to always stay fresh on your sound, create a new sound and market what you do. Man, its a grind. A serious grind and the crazy thing is, is once you get in, it doesn’t mean anything. Its almost like you have to start all over and you have to be way better then what you were before.
“You’re Only As Good As Your Last Hit!”
4 real. It is true. This thing is about making money and nothin’ but. You are only considered, “Fam-” if you are making somebody else’s pockets fat. That’s what, “Fam-” is. Its all about that bread.
But, you definitely gotta get lucky. There is so much money out here to be made, but it is only available to a certain group of people. Until that door is unlocked, little, if not nothing is going to happen.
But I will say this, God is able. God is greater than luck. His Blessing are greater then luck and that’s what I focus on the most. What God has for you it is for you, no if ands or butts about it. I think that is my best advice for anyone. God will work on your behalf. Sometimes, if not all times, it is not up to us, to say what we want to do or desire to do.
But continue to do your thing. Believe in yourself and put actions behind it. Its too easy just to give up. Too easy. Fight for what you believe in.
