WE CHOPPED IT UP WITH AK FROM TRENDSETTAH INC. 16


HM: Every time I sit down I get the question on where should we start. I know your products are everywhere and that's your slogan right? AK: Yea, we actually made a big push in the US market to really have al, the neighborhoods throughout the US to feel the impact of Trendsettah and the life style. The whole movement from Hood wraps to the new Blow Line and the eye drops and to the music, to everything. HM: Yes it defiantly hit the industry hard. We're sitting here with AK. So tell our readers how you got started in the tobacco industry. Ak: I have been in tobacco for about 15-16 years so it's just in my blood now. We're the first ones that made Swisher famous. Spiltarillos famous, Black and mild famous, Philly famous, the whole Garcia Vega, we got the whole neighborhood saying blunts still but we're here to teach them a whole new language now. Instead of rolling up blunts we're going to roll up Spilts. That's the new way.

AK: You can find them all across the US, in your local liquor stores, gas stations and smoke shops. HM: What makes your tobacco papers stand out from the rest? AK: We're unique. We have the top quality product at the cheapest domestic price. We don't believe in taxation in the hood. We want to show them the best so instead of making the cherry and grape flavors we got unique names like OG sweet and GSix grape, swag berry and the bomb blueberry, pineapple, express and a couple new ones to hit them with. HM: Rapper Ditch was handing out your red white and blue bag at the BET after party. You should've seen the lines. Do you sale that bag? AK: Yea you can go to www.Trendsettahinc.com and you can purchase these USA bags. We're representing the USA hard and you get samples of all of our products in there.

HM: OK! That's good to know because that line was crazy. AK: Yea we do that as a marketing tool. Like Swag phones, it started off as a marketing tool, basically Trendsettah get at us so we we're handing people the phones. It's a phenomenon all across the world the world. Same thing with bags now, same thing with our snap back hats, same thing with our glow in the dark shirts.

Grades) and its going to promote all the achieves In School to help them become A and B students. We're making a deal with the Unified School district to help with better grades so that's how we're going to give out Swag Phones.

HM: How did you come up with Swag Phone? AK: Swag phone was created about four years ago. Before Trendsettah was even out. It was basically instead of holding uncomfortable phones. We were like, we miss those old hand phones at the houses. One day I was with my guy that I've known for fifteen years from China. I was telling him about it and he said you know what, we should make an old school phone as a gimmick and connect to the cell phones. I said you know what lets do some R&D and see what we can do. Six months later we came up with it. HM: Are they any new flavors coming out for the Split a Rena or the Hood Wraps? AK: We have a whole new line of hood wraps coming out. It's called Hood Wrap Labels. Black label, blue label, green label, white label, just hit them with the labels. Why does Johnny Walker get to have labels and we don't. With spilt o rillos, the new ones to come is going to be Cali green, black label, purple k, white grape, K don't stand for king and a couple other ones. The main one that is coming out is called 18k gold and loud turnt up. I want to tell you something about swag phones so you'll know.

R.M.M. C.E.O. BIG PERCY @ THE ROOSEVELT HOTEL IN HOLLYWOOD CA.


HM: So how long have you been in the game?

come up and I been with him since that day.

Percy: I have been in the game 15 years. My cousin had a record label back in the day. Power House Records. It started with my management company out in Pomona, 7 South Management. From there is just escalated with the blessings of getting with Dogg and the Dogg Pound then from there it formed RMM. So yea, fifteen years in the game, strong as far as this music and entertainment shit but professionally, twenty years basketball coaching and doing some other things.

HM: That’s cool; I use to stay right on Grove St.in Pomona I know just where you at with that. So how many Artists are you now managing? Percy: Right, now on my roster I probably have about twenty musical acts, but I have models, actresses, I have the basketball players from the NBA. So you know musical wise I would say about twenty but I'm damn near signing somebody everyday.

HM: So when did you start RMM? Percy: Probably been bubbling and marinating going on about a strong 7 yrs. It's growing every year now. HM: Can you tell us how you started working with Dogg? Percy: Well, it definitely was a blessing. My brother, one of my artist, the world famous rapper CoCaine and one of my other artist Suga Free were already working with Dogg when he first moved from Long Beach to Claremont and La Vern which is the border of my city, Pomona. They were already working with him and it was just a blessing. They told me to

HM: I know you do marketing. Is clothing included in that? Percy: I do clothing. I was one of the founders and helped Snoop when he first has his Snoop Dogg clothing. I'm also the Vice President of Serious Pimp Clothing, which Snoop is the President of that. So yea I definitely dibble and dabble in the clothing. It's a lot of brands that want me to get to Dogg and get him to wear the outfits. A lot of my clients wear our outfits. But when they do that they have to bless me with a retainer, put me on the marketing. My main clothing line right now is Serious Pimp Clothing. HM: Can you give us the name some of your artists? Percy: Yea, we got No Face, Cocaine, Suga Free, you got the Dogg Pound, DC, Young Giants, Day Lyric, you got BC Swang, you got TC Bradshaw Which you interviewed for your magazine , Young Doty and Ambitious. I mean the list goes on and on. RMM, we out here.

HM: How do you select your artists? Percy: I don't really mess with nobody unless they got a movement. They already have to have a foundation for me to get involved. They have to have a fan base and a couple of my people have to speak on them then I will come check them out. From there we put the stamp on them then it's official like a referee with a whistle. HM: Tell us one of the best things that you do. Percy: “Make Money”, “Feeding our Families”, taking care of these Babies and enjoying these “Lovely Ladies”. You can't be a “Broke Nigga”, everything costs. I have to put my air in my “Momma Name” that even cost.

42


HM: How can our readers follow RMM?

Percy: RMM, is worldwide just pull it up. We have RMMEntertainment.com you can go to the website or Google me Big Percy the CEO.
