Watch the New World Order Video

Rockafella Records, Bad Boy & Cash Money Records are said to be in a negotiations process to do in Hip Hop Rap only what Michael Jackson could do for Pop Music.  As a result of the huge success of MJJ’s “This is it,” showcase that made over $101M in less than five days, the hottest Rappers in the business plan’s are to do a huge Virtual Concert to be seen worldwide at Movie theaters near you.


I mean this is huge as Monster Energy Drink and Red Bull are being called in to sponsor this musical extravaganza featuring the hottest acts in Rap music all on one stage.  The show is planned to be very high energy and a promotional for the Energy Drinks companies. 


The show is planned to go on for about 3 hours in a mix of acts from Cash Money, Rockafella and Bad Boy.   There are a lot of logistics that has to be settled as far as media venue to pricing.


In an unusual arrangement by Live Nation the mega tour production company with venues throughout the United States, this promotional strategy is selfless as Live Nation will use a different type of venue to present these shows, being Movie Theaters rather than Concert Venues.


There is conversations out there that it will be a limit engagement with first come first served as tickets will be sold in advance with a system of Rhythm and Reason, meaning a setup by design to serve the fan base of these three mega record companies and entourages.


The estimated gross from ticket sales alone is predicted to be over $300M in less than a week, by being carried by thousands of theaters at once all over the world.  Lil Wayne can be released in as little as 8 months.   Part of the proceeds will go to AIDS Research and NaQuila Hardy is the BUZZ, she is being considered to open the show with the International AIDS Anthem, FindCure-CureAIDS. 

The Vision of Power

The Vision of Power


Some of us learn slow and other never learn.  I spent my life proving a point, which is love don’t love nobody.  The only think a black woman understands is control and I mean physical restrictions.  The old saying about first the money and then the power and then you can enjoy the rest to include sex, is real.


Sure you can alter the process and enjoy sex first but you will end up with nothing but a bunch of child support payments.   Women liberation screwed a lot of things up, women think they run the world, because they have college degrees, while the black man is incarcerated, but in reality they are simply defenseless and at the mercy of the men of the community.


Until the black woman can learn to step aside and let the black man lead the black family will be highly dysfunctional.   Look at the black community where there is very little unity among the people, they rob, kill and assault each other over trivial shit, because the black man today is disparate.

Hollywood Energy Drinks Campaign

Hollywood Energy Drinks Campaign


Many start old and new are siding with Red Bull and Monster Energy Drinks.  Artists are filming videos, making jingles and full songs that mention one of the products.  It is anticipate monster red as being a major drink promoted by Stackz 2020.  Many artist such as P. Diddy, Janet Jackson, Lil Wayne, Alicia keys, Beyonce, Jay Z then you have people like Chris Brown, Usher, Jermaine Dupri, the Time Band who is currently performing at the Flamingo in Vegas.


This is booked as being the event of the summer, with all types of giveaways and prizes and free energy drinks.  This campaign is a tie in with Live Nation, as Live realized energy drinks wakes up a crown and alcohol pit them to sleep.

NaQuila Likes Monster Red

NaQuila Likes Monster Red


With Energy drinks on the surge as many youths use it as an aphrodisiac (Intensifies sexual desires) and as we know in the music industry sex sells.  There is a big campaign between Red Bull and Monster Energy Drinks to start a huge rivalry in a limit partnership. 


Red Bull and Monster Energy Drinks are siding up with many Pop artists in a huge campaign to make Red Bull and Monster in the energy drinks market what Coke and Pepsi is in the soft drinks market.  .


We are hoping to get sponsorship from Monster, because it is our choice of energy drinks.  Monster is basically the same thing as Red Bull meaning it works the same, however Monster give you double the bang for your buck.  They are both equally quality drinks and the goal is to make consumers choose between the two as they corner the market with hop Hip Hop Commercials on stations like MTV, BET, VH1 and Nationwide Radio Airplay  that caters to the consumer group targeted by this campaign.

Gambino’s New Rules to the Music Game

Gambino’s New Rules to the Music Game


I will be located in Florida working at my home studio making music with NaQuila, we have a 100 songs deal.  With the music industry in a slump due to the economy “Economic Crisis,” many great artists are not getting their share of the industries market.  I mean let us face it CD sales are down and people do not buy album like they used to over the internet.  You now have cafeteria fans that pick and choose song by song on internet downloads.


So it seems that the old way of doing business is quickly fading in relevance.  Major record labels have yet to address to slump.  The idea that the economy will grow again in a major way has to be based on business tactics.


Basically the point is that historically artist went to the studio with the intentions of creating a album of about 17 to 20 songs.  Then they hope the project that often has little continuity sells as a project when in reality they are just pieced together material.  Rarely a storyline is involved in these new projects. 


I think the sound of 2010-20 will be an evolving and constantly changing.  I think that the new market will be radio airplay rather than trying to always sell millions of copies of CD’s.  Artist have to demand to be paid instead of being used as promos when they make music videos, I mean commercials sponsor stations like MTV.


I think the key is not to go to the studio and just create an album, but to address the demands as the happen.  We live in a world of unpredictability’s and very few major artists are addressing the current and important issues facing the world and America.


So it seems that the wisest move today is to address contemporary issues and test new sounds to promote a new industry for a new music industry future.  I think the industry can recover if it addresses the real issues facing the industry and the economy today.  I think major artist and labels should really address the demands of consumers and make music on demand.  Meaning we should address more political issues and make more singles the match the consumers on demand for downloads.   The future of music is about who has the best set of hot singles

Is Janet Jackson, fake, tired & boring?

Janet Jackson Number OnesIs Janet Jackson, fake, tired & boring?


She had me going for a moment; I thought she was going to do something different and new, than came “Make Me,” it is hot but nothing new.  Reminds me of a Tina Turner type return sort of except Tina has an adult fan base and sings about real issues, Janet is still running after little kids.  I hate to say it but I am too mature for the kiddy crap.  The little kid in an adult body refuses to grow up and the people who made her what she is are grown up already, can we address single parenting, black on black crime and the screwed up world in need of love?  Sorry Janet but you are no PYT these days maybe Rihanna or Beyonce can still pass as a PTY, but you are older and an over the hill or motherhood?  I mean what do you see in the morning before makeup?  Get real!  Blow my mind with something other than sex!  And how can I not mention Alicia a true PYT?


Are you fake and tired and boring and Jermaine’s charity case; but on the real side, I understand you are spoiled and fell in-love with the glamour and now you are a prostitute for tracks?  Did not mean that but it needed to be said!  Being real I understand you do not want people to know that you are a sucker for love loser, except you fell from grace because you forgot how you got there and betrayed a trust.  The people who made you, you turned your back on, but thank the Lord for Michael’s success after death, sad as it is I am sure you will get your allowance. 


My niece said you are ugly, I said no she is just a little over the hill, then again you are no Tina Turner she is pretty for her age, and you are just aged!  Too old and fat to dance anymore, almost fell at the Grammy’s and there is nothing special about your voice so welcome to the club called has-been’s. 


So why did I love you, because you were fine, I do not think so, the only thing you have on common with Halle Barry is you are both cookies, if you know what I mean?  Because you were rich, but the trust you betrayed and everything you got you were given.  Your youth is long gone.  So why did I love you Janet?  Oh that is a secret!  And now I care less!  Like Michael said, “This is it.”  It is too late and what we do not know we will never know.



Kanye West Steals the Moment of MJJ, Janet & Taylor Swift

MJJ and JDJJKanye West Steals the Moment of MJJ, Janet & Taylor Swift


The show was billed for the opening act tribute to Michael Jackson.  Madonna gave a beautiful speech as she explained her relationship with Michael and the few dates they had.  And then there were videos of Michael Jackson on a huge screen and great performance by Janet as the VMA were pack with many wonderful moments. Was this Janet’s first live performance on Syndicated Television since the Super Bowl of 2004?  I mean this was a major event that went all but forgotten.


Why?  Because a 32 year old Drama Knight terrorizes a young 20 year old woman, just because he felt someone else should have won the Grammy.  I mean this is supposed to be entertainment and Hollywood at its best among the most famous and we had to watch this senseless act on constant rewind.  It is like all the money invested in the VMA went down the drain and all the media remembers was Kanye acting a fool.


Is this because these are the expectations of the media when it comes to a black man?  I mean the underlying message is black people even after success cannot behave themselves at social events.  Rewinding Kanye constantly is an insult to the black community as we speak about him but little about Beyonce sharing the moment with Taylor or what it was billed as a tribute to Michael Jackson and Janet’s courage to perform. 


This was a black man at his worst and white media at its best, depicting black people as uncivilized animals.  Let us get over it; we should not acknowledge this as a good thing of excitement, but for what it was an act of very poor judgment and he should be seriously reprimanded and not pumped up to do this again.  It was verbal assault.  He frightened the hell out of that poor girl, in an unforgettable moment of embarrassment.


I think it was calculated, a publicity stunt by Kanye and very disrespectful not only to Taylor but to Michael Jackson and the Tribute, which is going unnoticed.

Kanye West Sold to the New Expectation

Kanye and Taylor SwiftKanye West Sold to the New Expectation


What Michael Jackson did with Thriller was an anomaly and it made Thriller the hit it was as Michael makes MVV what it is today.  However there will be no other Thriller album, unless something strange happens in the current music industry.


I like Kanye enjoys Beyonce performances she is a excellent performer and singer, but the problem with the VMA is that it has become an expectation, it is like every year the same people wins all the awards.


I think there should be rule to the amount of awards a person wins unwritten of course, but there are enough awards to go around, and furthermore Beyonce got hers and Taylor Swift fans are also happy and the bottom line is it will sell more records across the industry.


We seem to have turned the VMA into a NBA playoff, instead of what it is a long musical promotional that supports the industry, gives fans a chance to see their favorite artists and find out what new acts and music is out there.  It is an event of festivities to be enjoyed and not to take too seriously. 


You do not know how many times I got upset because Janet came in second or third place in the Grammy’s during the days of Whitney and the rest, but it was all in fun as Janet was just happy to be nominated.  What Kanye did was bad for business and he should be fined for his misbehavior because it should not be tolerated and can cost Taylor record sales.  And the bottom line is record sales.  Beyonce is doing just fine give others a chance.

Things are starting to take shape

Frank Paul GambinoThings are starting to take shape


A lot of little things are in the workings, I do not want to elaborate too much, but we have a few home studios up and one to get up and running, they all can produce radio friendly productions and most certainly quality demonstration productions.  I think it is a good thing, because this last studio will help channel energy of the Underground Network into doing good things and giving them a chance to pursue their dreams in music.  I think everyone deserves a second chance.


The Message of the Day


One of the best times of the year begins for you with today’s new moon in Cancer, so make your plans big and believe – really, really believe – that you will accomplish great things. There is nothing you cannot do.


I have so many ideas circling around in my head on how to make this happen, as I have people I want to work with also, like this guy from my job can really sing.  The main point of connection and collaboration will be on my sister’s studio, which are two separate components and recording studio 24 tracks and a music production system configured into a computer, unlike mine’s I have everything configured into a super PC. 


There was rhythm to my reasoning, a recording studio workstation requires less maintenance and I know my time is limited, hell I prefer to make beats for them; me and my nephew Raymond combined have a few hundred beats already  but I do not want anything to cause the studio to be down and a workstation properly used will require very little maintenance.  If all they need is a beat to work with we can supply that for 25% of the writer’s royalties.


On the screenplay front, as for the Apostle, there has to be two people to play me as I was young at the beginning.  I think a good opener for Will Smith would be my nephew Anthony Williams; they have the same color eyes, unfortunately mine’s are a little darker but brown as well with a black circle around them.  The movie “Everybody has Demons” with Janet, Alicia and Beyonce would be a great setup for John Gotti Jr. and Anthony Williams in the Apostle.  However the actual other leading role is my Stepfather Frank in the “Apostle.”  I think the “Apostle” will cost much more than “Everybody has Demons” to produce, because it takes you all over the Country and World  and covers about 25 or 30 years of adventures and dramas. 


Screenplay into Movie & New Recording Studio

Denzel WashingtonScreenplay into Movie & New Recording Studio


I have been getting excellent reviews about the screenplay “Everybody Has Demons.”  I have been told such words as awesome and thumb’s up.  My sister Egeria is going to take over from here as far as seeking financers she has a good network.  Any changes or additions to the screenplay have to be approved by me.  I still think Denzel Washington is the best Director in the world and any actor or actress under him will be at their best, because I believe he will bring the best out of them.  Janet and Alicia are written in stone for their parts I wrote it for them and Beyonce and Anthony I really want to give Anthony a break and Beyonce though it was written with her in mind, I think she may still have to be sold to the idea, also John Gotti Junior is in and I plan for him to play his father in the Apostle and honestly the best person to play me in the Apostle would be Will Smith.  First let us get “Everybody has Demons,” off the ground.


We planned to put up another home studio soon, it will be for recording vocals to musical tracks, then maybe later I will consider making it into a full production studio.  It will however have limited music creation capability but my focus is on doing vocal tracks on this one.  Hopefully we will have this done next month.  I want to work with my nephew’s crew the Underground Movement as well as other talented people of my choosing
