PUBLISHER’S NOTE

Photo courtesy of WhyCauseICan.com

It costs to be the BOSS!!! I was out at a showcase when I ran into someone I hadn’t seen in a couple of years. Taking a few minutes to catch up, they told me about all the things they had been working on and then asked what I had been up to. I simply replied, “Working”. They looked at me a bit puzzled and then asked, “Oh... where do you work at?” I laughed and told them, “The same place I’ve been working at… The Magazine.” This exchange reminded me of an epiphany I had six years ago, when the magazine was still new and I had to work hard to sell ads. I would head into the office everyday around 9 AM to do sales calls, but somehow could never manage to make it home before 10 or 11 at night (This wasn’t flying with the wife… lol). Looking over my call logs, I noticed that while I would do all of my calls early in the day, nearly all of my conversations would be in the evening, when people got off from work and were able to call me back. That’s when it hit me like a ton of bricks! My business, this magazine, was my JOB, but for most of the people I talked to about

4 | Makin’ It Magazine

advertising, their job was something other than music (or whatever they were looking to promote). I then realized why I was having such a hard time selling ads.

(franchise fees, construction, licensing, payroll, etc) but when you get your check believe me it’s significantly larger than the guy’s working drive through.

Starting a business, you take on a lot of extra expenses and responsibilities (Office Rent, Additional Phone Lines, Internet, Web Servers, Accountants, Email Servers, Promo Services, Employees, etc) but you accept it as the cost of doing business because at the end of the day, your success will not be determined by how little you spend, but by how much MORE you bring in than you put out.

Printing some business cards with Vistaprint and calling yourself a CEO means nothing if you don’t accept the expenses and responsibilities required for your business to grow and make money. This is a concept lost on those who are stuck in the mindstate of an employee. An employee is accustomed to just walking into a situation created by a boss, doing their LIMITED part and walking away with a LIMITED sum of money.

A business is an entity designed solely for the purpose of making money. When you see yourself as a business, you understand that your purpose is to make money, and you accept the responsibility that you will have to invest in the resources to make that happen. It costs nothing to work at a McDonalds. Just show up, do your job and there’s a check waiting for you at the end of the week. If you want to own a McDonalds however, you have to accept all of the expenses that come along with ownership

The point of the story is, It costs to be the boss. So if you don’t have the resources or the stomach to go all in with your own business, save yourself the eventual heartache and play your position. Be an artist on someone else’s label; be a writer for someone else’s magazine; or be a promoter for someone else’s event because there’s nothing wrong with being what you are, the issue is being what you’re not. #BossesStandUp

Brandon Rossi by C Mathews

A native of Decatur, GA, rapper, singer, songwriter and producer, Brandon Rossi grew up in a musical household. Joking that everyone in his family is either a preacher or musician, he sat down with us to answer a few questions about music and his recent signing to RocNation.

As the self-proclaimed Prince of Chicago, Gerunimo, was born and raised on the City’s west side. Growing up in a single parent household, he has a story that many of his fans can relate to. With an unmatched grind, he has a hunger that, in his words, only a record deal will satisfy. With 24 mixtapes already under his belt, he has another 3 slated to be released between now and early 2014. Having opened for a multitude of artists including Crucial Conflict, Jadakiss, Cassidy, Bump Jay, Kanye West and B.O.B, he is building a reputation as an all-around entertainer.

When did you know that music was going to be your life? It was watching ‘The Wiz’ that got me interested in music. I started playing the trumpet when I was twelve and then joined the marching band in high school. I didn’t know I wanted this to be my career though, until I had the opportunity to be involved with the movie Drumline.” What are you currently working on? I’m working on a new album but I’m also doing music for RaVaughn, Casey Veggies, Jacob Latimore and Carl Thomas too. I’m trying to be the next Quincy Jones. How does it feel being signed to RocNation? I just feel really blessed to have the opportunity to pursue my dreams. I owe so much to my family and friends that believed in me and supported me and also my people over at Major Cosign for helping connect the dots. What advice would you give to Independent artists? Just to continue making good music, always stay working and build good relationships. Those were three most important things for me. Instagram.com/BrandonRossi

“Hell... I would walk to Brooklyn for some cheesecake if it got me a record deal. I’ve walked longer than that selling my CD at events and didn’t have a contract waiting in my hotel room.” -Kelby Cannick (The Rapper), 2002 I think we can all remember that infamous scenario when hip hop and reality TV first officially collided. Diddy’s Making The Band 2, showed us just how far some rappers were willing to go for the validation of a record deal. I too was one of those artists, as you can tell from the opening quote, but as that first season played out, I quickly began to see that Reality TV and Hip Hop didn’t mix. It was too up close; too personal; too intrusive into the lives and shortcomings of the cast. It magnified their character flaws to an extent that it overshadowed their talents. The artists quickly became too ordinary, too commonplace, too REAL. This observation would later be proven with the eventual failure and disbanding of the Da Band. Fast forward 10 years and it seems that Hip Hop and Reality TV have found their rhythm, with rap veterans such as Snoop Dogg, Ice T, Luke Campbell and even Reverend Run

“Basically, it’s another outlet to get your name and brand out to the people that matter... The Fans. However, it’s also a way into your personal lives. Your personal life almost always will impact your music career. You can be the best lyricist, creatively sound and skilled, but if you are a womanizer, a dead beat dad or a drug abuser, your actions will show because you allowed a venue into your personal life by living your daily activities in front of the camera for all to see.

“The craziest thing about ‘Reality’ TV is that for the most part it isn’t ‘REALITY’. Whenever you put a camera in the mix, NOTH-

making the idea quite commonplace. And who do we owe it all to? Flavor Flav, the man who accidentally discovered the formula for a successful hip hop reality show. Just take Hip Hop with all of its swag, dysfunction, vices and culture then totally remove the element of music and Viola, a winner!

rection of the show and how you’re presented. But when you’re an artist looking to use a show as a springboard to start a career or regain a stalling one, the leverage is to the advantage of the production company whose only concern is ratings, ratings, ratings!

Love and Hip Hop is a perfect example. With an ensemble cast spanning from producers to rappers to singers, this Reality TV juggernaut can pull in as much as 630,000 tweets in a week. How many of which are about music? Just take a quick trip to Google and search for any cast member. You’re more likely to find out who’s single than who has a new single.

I’m sure Keyshia Cole, Bobby Brown, Juicy J and DJ Paul all had totally different visions for what their reality shows would be and how they would subsequently affect their lives and careers. There’s a good chance that “All My Babies’ Mamas” was the best thing to NEVER happen to Shawty Lo. If a talented artist like K. Michelle has a prominent role on “Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta” (averaging 3.2+ million viewers per episode) and only sells 65,000 albums her first week, I believe thats a big indicator for how much (or little) reality TV shows actually affect an artist’s fan base. Meanwhile, someone somewhere is cashing a VERY nice check for consistently bringing in 3.2 million viewers that VH1 can sell to advertisers. So, while everyone is looking at Reality TV as the new hustle…. Many fail to see in most cases it’s hip hop that’s actually the one being hustled.

Is there anything wrong with that? No… But but lets call a spade a spade. Reality TV has become the rapper’s botox… A temporary solution to smooth out the wrinkles in their career. Providing an additional income stream, reality shows can serve as a 30 to 60 minute weekly vehicle (infomercial) for branding or rebranding. The biggest issue in most cases, is the production company producing the show has 100% control of how that brand is portrayed to the public. When you’re an established act like T.I., Chili or Snoop you have the leverage to negotiate for higher pay per episode; to control the di-

ING is going to go down the way it would if the camera wasn’t there. “First 48” that is “reality” TV to me. “Love & People You’ve Heard Of ” is a TV show. But let them get their money. When you can get 3Gs for a walk through just because you’re on a TV show, made up or not, you can’t hate that. I just wish they would make their own social site and release my news feed and timeline from the weekly nauseating posts I have to endure, especially from grown ass men!“

CurtCurt87 Huntsville, AL

“Reality Shows have been a way for artists to market themselves in a different light but let’s be honest though. These reality shows, like Love & Hip-Hop, R&B Divas and even Housewives of Atlanta, cater towards the African American female fanbase. I don’t know how many of them

P.S. For those of you who like numbers: 65,000 CD Sales divided 3.2 Million viewers equals an effective reach of 2%.

are rushing to buy Joe Budden’s CD cuz he was on Love & Hip Hop. At the end of the day you are either fans of these artists or you’re not. The foundation is music. Good Music. Being on a reality show will not drastically increase your record sales. K. Michelle didnt have the best record sales in her first week. I believe her music is great. At the same time, she’s not Rihanna either. She isnt in that Top 40 radio category. At least not yet. So at the end of the day, Music is what it all comes back to”

Jay Harris Atlanta, GA

“Music sales are down and TV views are up... Almost every week I post hip hop record sales and its the SAME artist selling records. The rest are just selling their souls. Reality TV is a good tool for creating visuals, but it doesn’t sell albums since ART-

IST’s music barely gets played due to licensing. I’m not against reality tv but at least get a good scripted scene where you can play your music.”

Schweinbeck Atlanta, GA

“I feel that reality TV is another lane to get noticed, but I wouldn’t consider it the “new” hustle. Everything in this industry to me is a hustle... whatever it takes to get noticed, Some choose reality TV and are never taken seriously.”

artists, you’re sure to see your favorite rapper in there somewhere making a cameo. Catching up with Zaytoven during a listening session for the film’s soundtrack (available on Livemixtapes.com), we learned that he’s already begun work on a second film project which he reveals will be a comedy. Even with his hectic schedule working on film projects and music for The Migos, Gucci Mane, Yung LA, Chief Keef and more, Zaytoven still makes an effort to give back to the independents. Partnering with Makin’ It Magazine for the 6th installment of the Kill the Track competition, he’s providing serious artists the chance to make their next single a Zaytoven Production and win a $2,500 promo campaign (Details at MakinItMag.com/Ktt6).

Tacoma, Washington probably wouldn’t be among the top ten cities you think of when considering urban music, but the work that Clem Rishad and Will Jordan are doing may soon add it to the list. Individually, the two are talented artists in their own right; Clem, a charismatic emcee that blends flavors from all coasts, and Will, a creative vocalist unafraid to cross genre lines in search of something new. Together however, the two form the Grammy Nominated, American Music Award winning writing and production team, The Writers Block. Rising from obscurity in Tacoma to work with some of the hottest artists in the game such as Rihanna, T.I., Nicki Minaj and Sean Kingston, they understand that great talent can come from anywhere. This is one of the attributes that made them the perfect partner for our 5th installment of the Kill the Track competition

(Details at MakinItMag.com/Ktt5). Providing independent artists with the opportunity to slay one of their beats, complete with hook, the two have been very interested in hearing the level of creativity they inspire in other artists.

Luney Tunez by D Banks

For a Multi-platinum producer who’s done records for a list of artists including Rick Ross, Rihanna, Gucci Mane, and Future among others, Luney Tunez remains surprisingly humble. With an intense work ethic, Luney is always ready to hop in the studio and create. Whether it’s working with an established artist or an independent one, the goal is always to deliver a hit. This dedication to consistency most likely stems from being and independent artist himself. Spawning several successful singles over the years, including “Powerful Draws” and “Acka Fool”, he knows firsthand what it’s like to have songs spinning in various markets and hitting the road to support them. His most recent single “Somebody 2 Luv” has been gaining steam online and getting picked up by DJs in markets throughout the Midwest and the Southeast.
