Diddy is officially a fool for this one. But I see that this is where the prospect of having Palin in office will drive you. It is a frightening thought! Did Palin really give a "Shout out" during yesterdays debate? Well doggonet...gosh darn it (slapping my knee)..I think she did. (wink, wink)

This is pretty clever...

Artists put out new music ALLLLL the time and most of the time, the approach is the same w/ boring mp3 blasts. My friend sent me this cute "cartoon" and I think its a clever approach to putting out a new single. Probably really inexpensive too.

...I'm the one that gets asked "daddy, when you coming home?" & then when I get there, I'm the one that gets yelled @ from my wife "why do u get toothpaste on the mirror all the time?"

4. When I was growing up I was told that I couldnt______ but did it anyway.

make it doing music

5. How did you break into your industry?

By using my DJ ability to get on radio then build my show to be all over the world & create unique mixtapes with my production. By doing those things it made the right people Get Familiar with me but trust me it wasn't as easy as that just sounded.

10. Moment when your hustle paid off was/will be when....

Wow! So many cool things have come out of my hustle from being Diddys tour DJ, to becoming the music correspondent on the E! Channel, to having a show on Eminems station on Sirius to receiving my publishing deal to writing & producing w/ Akon to syndicating my radio show worldwide,etc.etc. It would be hard to pinpoint. Everyday I wake up excited to see what awesomeness will happen next. I wrote & produced a record on Beyonces new album, 2 on Ludacris new album, I'm working on Sean Kingstons, etc. I'm very fortunate & happy. My life is awesome!

11. My family is proud of me because...

Hmmmmm, I think they would need to answer that. Wait,Let me call my mom real quick - okay, she said "because I had a goal to make it with music & never let anything or anyone get in my way from accomplishing that goal" She also said " because u always said u would be a better dad than what u had growing up & u are" (side note) she was asleep when I just called so that could just be a courtesy stock answer to hurry me off the phone.

12. Shameless plug (what do u want the world to know)
That life moves pretty fast & if u don't get involved & do what it is u really want to do with it, u might miss it! Never take people or life for granted. As far as me, you can check me out on the E! Channels Daily ten every Tues & @ the biggest party in the world, Smashtime Saturdays @ the Hard Rock hotel & casino in las Vegas in Body English EVERY Sat night & I have 2 albums coming out next year. One as a DJ album where I will produce everything & the other ill produce & be the artist (yes ill be the artist singing) & to log onto my site & Get Familiar!

Thank you to those that cared enough to read what I had to say!
