Capstone Zulu first album a flop

Capstone Zulu first album a flop

 

Capstone Zulu was distributed through ReverbNation by many distributers to include:

 

iTunes (US, Aus/NZ, Canada, UK/Europe, Japan, Mexico), Amazon MP3, Amie Street, eMusic, Fox News, GetGreenMusic, GetPlaylists, Guevera, iLike, Immergent, InMotion Entertainment, Intertech Media, Think Indie (CIMS/Junketboy), La Curacao, Last.fm, Wal-Mart (Liquid), MediaNet, MOG, Moozone, MySpace, Myxer, Napster, Nokia, Pandora, Puretracks, Rhapsody, Secure Media, Shockhound, Spotify, Synacor, Tesco, WaTunes, We7, Zune.

The first sale reports are about to be delivered or are coming soon.  However it does not look very good, because the music is simply not being played very much.

 

Admittedly, it was not the best of productions, but it had a few very meaningful songs selections.  Songs such as Symbolic Castration, New World Order, Can we make it and You think I am bad, are songs that I am very proud to have recorded.  Perhaps a more mainstream artist could have carried it better, but if so would they still be considered mainstream? 

 

I think I made a mistake by rushing the release of this project as a BETA project.  In the process of attempting to learn and understand to distribution networks, for future releases I sacrificed this one.  I might re-master my favorite songs on this album and add it to my next project along with other new material.

 

I haven’t been promoting this album much lately, because I am a one man band so to speak and have been focusing on another agenda, my non profit corporation NCNCHINC (The National Network and Coalition of Highlands, INC.)  As we will meanly focus on community work, addressing the economic and social problems and situations of the Hood, we will build a state of the art DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) at the headquarters’ location.

 

We at NCNCHINC are very low on liquid capital.  However, we are in the green on equity and are seeking a line of credit and grants and of course philanthropic gifts.  We have to restructure our board of directors and tighten up on some of our administrative tasks to gain 501 c 3 statuses.  However our biggest challenge is the lack of liquidity.  We have a building that is two stories; however we are not able to move into it due to the lack of capital.  I have not seen many darker days, but for the first time I see light at the end of the tunnel.

 

We have a web site under construction, for further information check out www.NCNCHINC.org – This is our acronym and it was a blessing that we got the domain. 

 

Entertainment is about selling Dreams

Entertainment is about selling Dreams

 

Entertainment is basically a distraction from reality.  As times get harder the demand for to be entertained grows.  Yet we usually associate entertainment with discretionary funds.  It is common for us to believe that we will go to the he movies or buy a music CD or download if we have money leftover after we pay off our living expenses.  However this is the mindset of people who actually have discretionary funds.  The average poor person who actually has little optional cash to spend tends to chase after an escape from this dreadful reality.

 

As many of the poor and oppressed think they are getting over, by illegal downloads of music and film and going to the black market for a DVD in reality, we are the victims.  Have you ever heard the saying a victim of circumstances?  The state of affairs and conditions we are in are designed to cause us to resort to dishonest measures to deal life and the situation we are in.  People think that the meaning of entertainment is fun, because it is supposed to be fun to be entertained.  But hear me out; entertainment is by meaning a distraction, a diversion and an amusement as will.   So we are told it is fun to be distracted by Hollywood Stars in a nutshell.

 

So do not take this article wrong it is not designed to entertain but to inform, however we will entertain you as well.  My reasoning for entertaining people is that entertainment if done properly can bring forth longevity.  If a person is distracted from the feeling of oppression while being educated as to how to overcome the situation they found themselves in than the entertainment is good entertainment.  To distract a person from a situation that is bad as you display to them a way to overcome the situation is righteous.  But Hollywood tends to distract a person to create a worst mindset.  Hollywood is controlled by the Gay Mob and they are called the Gay Mob because of sexual preferences; but because their ways a perverted in the nature of their dealings.  Everyday people sell their souls for the opportunity to be an entertainer.  Why because the lack of moral standards is the price for recognition by Hollywood.  Why? 

 

Entertainment is about selling dreams and not about dreams being fulfilled?  We think it is the other why around, because we often hear the testimonies of the successful being from rags to riches. But they do not discuss the contract they made with the devil to gain the success and notoriety.  Hollywood is not about who people are, but about what they became.

 

Please help us build a better community support NCNCHINC.

 

Our web site is under construction and we badly need your support.

The $0.5M Avon Park Southside Stimulus Package

The $0.5M Avon Park Southside Stimulus Package

 

These are sad times here in the black section of Avon Park, FL.; especially in the Southside Community Redevelopment Area.  Where over 80% of the businesses are close and 100% or none are fully operational.  As the state of the Union may well be in a recession we here in the Southside Community are clearly experiencing a depression.  Something has to be done ASAP.

 

I call on the City of Avon Park, the State of Florida and the United States of America, to duly recognize the hardships felt by the citizens of Avon Park and Highlands County Florida.  We are a rural area and for that reason we know money has been set aside to face these difficult challenges.  We see our problems and there solutions as a boiler plate to the Nation as a whole.

 

First we need to reopen the doors to these establishments.  To do this we need a community based incentive business proposal.  Such a plan will be devised by the NCNCHINC and the SBDC in a cooperative effort with the local business owners. The purpose of this plan is to determine what business each property will be used for, that will help create a strong local economy.  We must come to a consensus. 

 

We call on the County of Highlands to give each property owner a tax exemption for the year 2010.  This tax credit is to be used and placed in a coffer directed towards paying the costs of utilities on the buildings.  In this package we call on the Avon Park Utilities Department to provide there services free of charge to qualifying businesses for the year of 2011, at a reasonable cap.  Now we have the lights, water and gas on and garbage maintenance covered and a new direction for doing business.

 

Then we want a full inspection of these properties done, to determine the costs to redevelop the properties and a renovation on all properties done at an estimated cost of no more than $300,000 in local labor and material brought as one major purchase, to create purchasing power.  This money will come from the Federal and State government.  Every building will be insured at its estimated value upon completion of renovation.

 

Meanwhile the owners of these properties or their management will be required to take and complete the Small Business Management Course at SFCC administered by the SBDC.  At which time a comprehensive business plan will be drawn up for each business to prosper in the long term.

 

Then we will provide grants and/or government subsidized loans to these businesses.  Such businesses should include and not be limited to activities necessary for the community at large to function such as; a grocery stores, laundry mate, office spaces, restaurants, hair solon and supplies store, barbershop, bar and other services as deemed needed and management qualified. 

NaQuila on the Rise watch out Nicki Minaj

NaQuila on the Rise watch out Nicki Minaj

 The Song “FindCure-CureAIDS” on MP-3

Her name is NaQuila L. Hardy aka Stackz2020 & Female Gotti.  A former member of the Young Money posse, who found a new home in Universal Music Group with a new Record Label name Involved Records, who is a subsidiary of the major label.

 

Her first single is about to be released in August 2010, the name of the song is “People Crying (Colors).” The song received the personal blessing of Ice T, who used a similar hook year ago in the soundtrack song from the movie “Colors.”  The song is Gambino Production writing by NaQuila L. Hardy and Frank Paul Jones.

 

NaQuila and Frank are currently engaged in major negotiations with one of the largest nonprofit organizations in New York City known as SUS acronym for the Services for the Underserved.  This organization has major influence in the nonprofit sector and does great work helping people with developmental disabilities, Mental Health problems and people living with AIDS to name a few of their services.  There is a possibility that SUS may receive a donation that is a song anticipated  to be the International Anthem for AIDS Research, which is also a Gambino Production performed by NaQuila and co-written by Frank Paul Jones & NaQuila L. Hardy.

 

Frank Paul Jones aka Gambino Productions is a personal friend of some of the high level executives at SUS, to include the CEO Donna Colonna and Senior vice President Priscilla Fuller who was his supervisor when employed at the Central Office of SUS in Manhattan, New York.  And the Chief Development Officer David L. Hertz made Frank make a promise before leaving SUS for undisclosed reasons.  He said, “Frank promise me someday you will make a donation to SUS.”  Well Frank called David and said “I am broke, but I can give you a hot song by new hot artist.”  And now it is all agreeing to terms. 

 

Meanwhile, NaQuila is being played at the local clubs in South Central Florida to include the hottest club in Highlands County called the MiXx; where NaQuila has powerful and influential friends.   NaQuila L. Hardy is turning heads as “she is to be taken seriously as an artist and is no Nicki Minaj” says the CEO of Involved Records Devon Gaithner.  NaQuila has gained the personal attention, respect and blessing of the Gotti Family in the use of the name Female Gotti, unlike Rick Ross who is perpetrating a fraud. 

 

So watch out Nicki Minaj there is a new high speed train traveling out of a small town called Avon Park, Florida that is about to reach out and touch the world.  Why?  Because the turn of time has come for her to shine!  

Carmine Gotti named “The Don” of New Pop

Carmine Gotti named “The Don” of New Pop

 

There are some many things under wraps and so many great things in the works.  As you may have figured out by now, I go by many names, 6 to be accurate; and my seventh name is yet to be revealed.  I am Frank Paul Jones aka Paul Castellano aka Frank Paul Gotti aka Frank Paul Gambino aka Capstone Zulu aka Jesus Paul Solomon.  I wonder what my 7th name will be.

 

It is not about multiple personalities, although I have been accused of that.  It is about paying due respect to people who were influences in my life and the role I played at that moment and time in my life.  It is not about disrespect to anyone but in fact it is about due respect and a way of expressing gratitude to important people in my growth.

 

Where am I going with this?  I hear Rick Ross named his new Album “Teflon Don.”  And I hear Victoria’s son Carmine has a problem with it.  Well I want to tell you Rick Ross you is no John Gotti!  However what I do suggest is that Carmine step up and be the Don of New Pop, sort of like the Frank Sinatra of the new millennium.  

 

It is all in fun and entertainment, however real connections exist in the real world.  They say John J. Gotti was a ruthless killer, when in reality he was a very charitable and good man.  Do they call the president of the U.S. a murderer in the tabloids for sending troops to war?  Enemies must be destroyed in all walks of life.  The Mafia is to big business what the CIA is to the government.  And until that is duly recognized the economy will never recover.

 

All to say, Rick if this was genuinely due respect to the Gotti family, here you have a 24 year old young man entering into a new stage in the business.  He is a friend to the Gambino Family and the grandson of Don Gotti.  If you want to be a friend to the Gambino Family and was showing due respect use your fame and influence in the Hip Hop game to give Carmine Gotti every opportunity to reach people in the name of the Gambino Family.  That said!

 

Finally, I think John A. Gotti should extend Gambino Records.  I used the name in my BETA project; however John I think we should incorporate the label with a major label as a subsidiary.  The music industry owes this to the Gambino Family.  It is time to restructure the family. 

 

Therefore to the Gotti Family I hand over Gambino Records and to my nephews I hand over Gambino Productions.  Now it is up to Carmine Gotti to reach out and connect himself to these networks.  Victoria should contact Egeria and give Gambino Records and Productions new meaning.  There is some tight stuff out there!  As for Rick Ross you owe us one.  W.W.J.D. but share the wealth! 

Blacks must look within self for fame and notoriety

Blacks must look within self for fame and notoriety

 

Through the late 1800’s to the 1960’s blacks played the Chitlin’ circuit, because it was considered safe for black’s during the segregated south in America.  Another piece on black history was the black educational institutions, whereby blacks went to black schools because they had no other choice.  The African American community fought hard to gain acceptance by white America to integrate into mainstream white American mindset, but at what cost?

 

Did the black community really gain anything, by gaining acceptance in mainstream white America?  Because like Minister Louis Farrakhan stated, who do we now depend on for agents, accountants, educators, managers and the many services that are conditional to these acceptances?  I mean are we better off making $100,000 for self or earn $500,000,000 for someone to else only end up broke and die?

 

We in the black community not only fought for acceptance by whites, but our mentality was the problem in the beginning.  We looked to white people to determine our levels of success.  White media determines if we are famous, the billboard 100, and other white charts determine if we are a hit.  And it is like Myspace.com whereby they are simply numbers of no true relevance.  So what if you sold 1,000,000 @ $9.99 each, when the cost was $10M in all types of silly expenses, for the mansion only employees get to enjoy to riders on your contract to get red jellybeans on a tray.

 

We measure successes by money made for our slave masters and yes I said slave masters and not the money that actually goes into our accounts.  But like Minister Farrakhan said the fault of the problem does not put food on the table nor can it be used as investment capital.  But we have to be aware of what is going on before we can develop solutions.  The solution is obvious we must return to doing for self.  We must self educate as we cater our system to what is necessary for a black people to survive in America.  We have to develop our own concert venues, develop our children to be managers, agents and everything necessary to be self reliant.  

 

Fact: African Americans are crucial to the consumer economy, with a population of 39 million and buying power of $892 billion – a figure expected to exceed $1.1 trillion in 2012.

 

We are already empowered, we are simply asleep.

Gambino Drops NaQuila’s Charges

The New World Order Song 2

Gambino Drops NaQuila’s Charges

 

Due to current circumstances NaQuila’s album release date has been pushed back.  After personal feelings got in the way of business, emotions flared and arguments got out of control.  Personally, I think it was a great job by Law Enforcement in Avon Park and Highlands County and preventative measures should be practiced more often.  Nobody even got injured in what seemed to be a dead-end and a dooms day to come.  But now for me I am refreshed and see light at the other end of the tunnel.

 

With so much going on we have to get this one behind us.  There are prospects for a world tour; I am on my time trying to find the proper production networks to make this happen.  I have the Capstone Zulu BETA Release that is very revealing. 

 

All the DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) Projects have been a great experience overall.  I would like to build a studio at the Commercial Site for about $40G or less though charitable donations and grants.

 

I almost completed the Production Process of the music industry and as much as I would like to give an in-depth report there are so many obligations to be fulfilled, between the non profit activities and music production processes.  The music studio would tie them together if located in the proper place, so there is a lot up in the air.

 

As for NaQuila everything has been put on hold pending the courts verification as well as decision based upon the request of the victim ( I ) that wants no further legal actions.  I never wanted her to be charged with anything to start with. We needed a cool off period, I personally think she caught cold feet, wanting instant results and it does not work that way, our act has to grow in the public eye.  Personally I think NaQuila needs a break anyway but the meek will inherit the earth, so we have to be persistent, dedicated, but long-suffering.  This is what makes her project so special; it is the realness of life show. 

 

Stay Tuned!

Opportunities Entertaining the Military

Opportunities Entertaining the Military

 

Everybody thinks that the only thing the military has to offer is work on the front line of war.  But little does a lot of people realize all the opportunities the military offers such as product sponsorship as well as your product on their shelves, I mean AAFES is a multi-billion dollar corporation.  Check out the hyperlink below.

 

Who is AAFES they are big money a must read:

 

Another opportunity wants to mention is the opportunity to tour the world and different levels of celebrity status and popularity.  Check out the hyperlink below and the short summery as well.

 

Who is the USO a must read for musical artist:

USO Tour Information at a Glance

Q: I am an entertainer who wishes to participate in USO shows. How do I apply?

 

A: We take pride in our ability to deliver some of America’s most popular and well-known celebrities around the world to the troops. USO tours can vary from a one-off to a complete tour with multiple destinations. The USO can also work with artists who may have available dates within their existing tours. USO celebrity status is not necessarily defined by experience of level of professionalism, but rather as a performer that has name recognition with the military members and families for who, they perform or visit. We also qualify celebrity status based on coverage in entertainment trade magazines like Billboard and Variety and as those seen on MTV, BET, CMT, etc. If you feel that you or the artist you represent meets these criteria, we look forward to discussing the possibility of a USO tour. Please send your press kit via e-mail to the Entertainment/Recruiting Assistant or materials can be mailed to:

Attn: Entertainment/Recruiting Assistant
USO Headquarters
2111 Wilson Boulevard, Suite 1200
Arlington, VA 22201

Non-Celebrity Entertainment

The USO realizes that there are many experienced professional entertainers seeking an audience with the troops that may not yet qualify for “celebrity” status. We encourage you to contact Armed Forces Entertainment (AFE). AFE is the single point of contact in the Department of Defense, for professional non-celebrity entertainment supporting our service members overseas. You can find more information about AFE on their Web site, or contact their offices at 1-800-458-0868.

Good luck and thank you for supporting our men and women in uniform.

NaQuila Prepares for Album Release

NaQuila Prepares for Album Release

 

Paul proposed a deal & NaQuila requested a continuance. 

 

NaQuila a resilient woman with so much on the plate regains focus.  There are so many details that have to be worked out.  I think the mistake a lot of producer’s and artist’s relationships make is to allow personal feelings to get in the way of business.  That is why Jermaine Dupri and Janet Jackson could not create a new hit.  I will not make the same mistake with NaQuila

 

It is my opinion that NaQuila, whom is the “Q” of 2020, has an opportunity to explode into the stratosphere if she does not abandon ship.   On court documents NaQuila musical genre was referred to as Pop/Political a new genre recognized by Homeland Security as a new way to reach and influence young minds. 

 

Not all politically popular music is USA friendly or God friendly, NaQuila is both.  With the mention of truth as the foundation to song structure the album sends out a strong message.  The Capstone Zulu BETA Project has been very informative, as it is moving up the charts prior to its actual release.

 

NaQuila on the other hand is a performer by song, dance and acting.  There are several options out there for her highly anticipated release in the political arena.  There is a possible world tour through the USO, doing GI night clubs and local venues.  There are so many opportunities open to her as she has gained celebrity status before her actual release through controversial blogs in a strong network.

 

Everything is in place as NaQuila is getting active again, losing weight, under pressure to act and being prepared for the long and lonely road called working in the music industry.  There will be lonely nights in the hotel, constant traveling and late nights under tight security.  Because the stuff she is singing about is going to raise eyebrows.

The Name Capstone Zulu & the Mission

The Name Capstone Zulu & the Mission

 

I was asked by a person who appeared to be poor, tired and weary.  His question was “what I can do for you, I ask because I have nothing?” 

 

We live in a world whereby many people are poor, tired and weary.  I fit in the category to many respects in General I am also poor, but refuse to be tired and weary.  The spirits of tired and weary has no place in my temple.  The outside conditions can be manipulated by others as we are all interdependent in the Universe.

 

The Capstone Zulu, first of all let me mention a piece of scripture. 

 

Ps 118:22 The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone;

Ps 118:23 the LORD has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes.

Ps 118:24 This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

 

No man you all talked about Michael Jackson being the King of Pop, based on popularity and record sales.  But this is really it.  This is the deciding factor for the entire world to witness and physically and emotionally experience the power of God.

 

Capstone Zulu AKA Frank Paul Gambino Productions is Paul Castellano in the flesh, meaning the spirit of God like in no other man or woman is with him.

 

1Th 5:2 for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 

1Th 5:3 While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

1Th 5:4 But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. 

1Th 5:5 You are all sons of the light and sons of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.

 

Capstone Zulu is a license stage name representing the highest achievement ever in the history of man.  Through music, writing blogs, screenplays that we hope will be produced soon, which includes music videos, documentaries and so on we will attempt to reach the world, not as a solo famous ICON but as the New World Leaders. Unlike Michael who was struck down in a disappearing act, this will never be struck down because the foundation is in the truth of the Lord. 

 

It is not about getting rich and living large now, be aware this is a hostel takeover by the people for the people, because Satan and the New World Order time is up.  The Hell the world is in must come to a halt say the Lord.  We will be the trend setters for the rest to follow.  Oh and the money will become useless, so why hold on to it, when tomorrow it will be counterfeit.
