This week I had a chance to speak with Compton native Hip Hop Artist, Justified. I was very awed with his mission for his role in Hip Hop. Justified’s mission is to bring positive light to fatherhood. In Hip Hop many times the glamorous life is shown, but artists are people too. A post that Justified made on Facebook caught my attention.
Of the many things that I like about Justified’s movement, one in particular is the underrepresented authenticity of Fatherhood in Hip Hop. Justified and his wife were rap duo, Mr. & Mrs. Smith out of Victorville, CA. A few years ago, Justified lost his wife to breast cancer, leaving him to raise his two young daughters while still grieving the death of his mother. Justified began to merge Hip Hop and fatherhood to share the real reality of fatherhood in Hip Hop. Beyond Hip Hop, fatherhood or the absence there of, matters in every family dynamic. In his song, My Life, he details his journey. He shared that his older children really stepped in as his foundation and support system. As part of Justified’s movement, this Saturday on April 7th, 2018, he will be filming the documentary, Fathers In Hip Hop: Volume 1, in Riverside, CA. I support this movement, I am excited to see!!!
Justified has collaborated with many other parenting organizations such as; Million Fathers and Daughter’s Lives Matter. Another of Justified’s efforts in which he is collaborating with Mc Eiht and Tha Chill of Compton’s Most Wanted of bringing positive light to fatherhood is his 2nd Annual Daddies on wheels event.
Daddies on Wheels is part of Justified’s Heal the Ville project. Daddies on Wheels is a fatherhood engagement skating event where sponsors donate for the admission and skate rental of a child to attend. What I love about Justified’s movement is that he is healing children who have lost a parent, parents that have lost a spouse, or lost a loved one through some type of separation through his challenges. He is not only bringing a positive light to fatherhood, he is also showing the positive light to fatherhood in Hip Hop. Great work!!!! His graphic skills are off the charts right!!!

This week’s Blonde Intelligence Blog is on new technology in the music business. I am always researching new technology in business and with music becoming more technologically dependent it makes sense to see what’s out there. Amper is a music tech startup company that empowers artists to create and customize their music for content through an artificial intelligence composer. Another is MAX (Music Audience Exchange), which is a platform that connects streams, video views, social media sharing, and live shows for analyzing data points. Dubset is another music tech startup. According to Dubset.com, Dubset offers an innovative music marketplace for distributors, artists, labels, publishers, and DJ’s built on transparency, ownership control, and simplicity. And of course there is Tunecore in which artists can stream on ITunes and others without backing from the record label.

Now there are application integration deals that move the parts of music and advertising such as Spotify and WAZE, Apple Music and Ticketmaster, and Echo and Amazon (Alexa). Blockchain Technology is peer to peer sharing with decentralized crowd funding. Blockchain Technology also essentially removes record labels and other centralized platforms. If you are an artist, new technology can remove the gatekeeper from the door that you are trying to enter. If you are in the music business I suggest you take heed to the new technology because new technology can be perceived as a threat in your S.W.O.T Analysis. It seems that technology is taking the power away from the record labels which means that record labels may become obsolete in the near future.

The Breezy Money Team out of the Tampa, Florida area has done it again!!!! On tomorrow Thursday, March 29th 2018 the Breezy Money Team Playback video show will debut. The show can be found on the Spectrum, Frontier, and Comcast Broadcasts. The show can also be streamed on www.tbch.org. The founder and executive producer of BMT Playback is Mr. Ike Breeze Burner, who also co-host of the show along with his artist, Hollywood, who is signed to the BMTMG Record label. The Breezy Money Team Brand consists of the BMTMG Record Label, BMT Urban Team Footwear, BMT International Apparel, BMT DJ’s (each with own radio show), BMT Advertising Agency, and now the Breezy Money Team Playback.
The Breeze Money Team Playback video show is for Indie Artists. BMT Playback feature videos from selected Indie Artist with an option for a Takeover show, which consists of two full episodes on one featured artist. Co-host and Executive Producer of the Breeze Money Team Playback, Ike Breeze Burner, has vast experience in the Hip Hop Industry. Mr. Breeze actually won a $100,000 project at the BET Hip Hop Weekend Showcase that was held in Atlanta for Ball So Hard. Co-host, Hollywood is a vocalist out of Mississippi. His latest single is “Ryder” which is available digitally worldwide under Breeze Money Team Distribution. Ryder was recently selected for possible placement on the hit series, Empire!!!
I had the pleasure of speaking with Mr. Breeze and was impressed with his business mapping skills and how I could envision the flow charts he described for the Breezy Money Team Brand. The Breezy Money Team is all in house and proven professionals. Engineering, mixing, graphics, advertising, and more are all done by the Breezy Money Team. This is a strong indication of a company that stands behind their product. With a team this sound and a stellar reputation in the industry, I think the Breezy Money Team Playback video show will discover many diamonds and next big sensations in the industry. I asked Mr. Breeze what information Indie Artists should know about Breeze Money Team. He said, “In the words of my homie Suge, if you’re tired of your executive producer dancing in your videos, call BMT”.
Don’t forget to tune into the Breezy Money Team Playback video show tomorrow night, March 29, 2018 at 11:00 pm EST on Spectrum, Frontier, and Comcast Broadcasts or streamed on www.tbch.org. As always remember to Like, Share, and Subscribe to Ms. Roni’s Blonde Intelligence 😊.
