Major vs Indie: The Pros & Cons of Record Deals


As the recording industry continues to battle against the steady decline of physical album sales, and now steady decline in digital album sales, it can be difficult as an independent musician to determine the best path to take for long-term growth and success.

Ultimately this crossroads is met with three separate avenues:
  1. DIY (Do It Yourself)
  2. Independent Label
  3. Major Label
There are pros and cons to each avenue, which should be weighed carefully against what type of musician / band you are and how you expect to see growth.

How To Find Jobs as a Musician


Session work is one of the steadiest ways to earn a living as a musician. The work is often flexible, so you can schedule it around your other projects as you see fit.

Whether you’re a guitarist, drummer, singer, or play a different instrument, as a session musician you’ll be hired to play your instrument for studio sessions, live shows, and tours for either a percentage of the profits or a flat fee.

Here are some ways to help you find work as a session musician...

GALLERY: The Story behind Mistah Wilson's "Central District via 23rd Avenue" Collection of Conceptual Street Sign Photography


I took this walk in the Summer of 2017. After moving to Seattle, I was desperate to build my street sign collection. I was just anxious to see it done. Unfortunately, I didn't have the appropriate tools to manufacture the watermark & filtering process. Oh, trust & believe it's actual work involved. Formatting and all. And when you go on long-distant walks like I do, there could by quite a few images to go through.



I started out on 23rd and Jackson. I parked my car near Starbucks and snapped photos of the intersection. It should be noted that I didn't really plan to go as far as I did. But, I would only discover this determination once I made it passed Union Street. After passing 23rd & Union, I felt good about going even further. I mean, I wanted to be able to say that I got as many as I did.



Working in Seattle, I would sometimes take 23rd into the U-District. So, I knew how far I was willing to go. Once I passed Aloha, I knew the walk was nearing the end. And, of course, once I reached the end, I had a nice walk back. It didn't make much sense for me to take more pictures but I decided to take 24th Avenue on the way back. I didn't get many more street signs, but I did enjoy the walk through the neighborhood.



On this walk, I snapped well over 100+ shots of street signs. I just knew it was going to be a healthy collection. What was suppose to be brought to you months ago, I am still pleased to present... My "Central District via 23rd Avenue" (Seattle, WA) Collection of Conceptual Street Sign Photographs. I hope you enjoy them as much I do!

Video Gaming now the Most Popular Form of Entertainment in the World?


Gaming has been loitering on the edge of absolute domination for some time but now it’s official - gaming is the most popular form of entertainment on the planet. More money is spent on games than on TV, movies, books, and just about any form of entertainment you can think of.

According to Reuters, gaming grew by 10.7% during the last year alone, while television continued its steady decline with an 8 percent drop globally. The total gaming revenue for the past year amounted to an estimated $116 billion, compared to $105 billion for TV and TV streaming services.

Compared to movies and music, gaming absolute the dwarfs the competition though. Just $17 billion was made from digital music sales and streaming, while movie box office totals for the past year amounted to $41 billion. So to clarify - gaming is now worth almost three times as much as the movie industry.

Gaming’s big then, no surprises there, but where’s the increased coming from? Growth in China is one of the leading answers. In China, game sales increased 14% per year on average and we’ve seen this with the huge increase in the number of Chinese players using Steam.

The other answer, of course, is... (Continue Reading)

Artist Cody Prez unveils his Wu-Tang Clan inspired mural titled "Climate Change Ain't Nothing To Mess With"


“When it comes to the children, Wu-Tang is for the children. We teach the children.” Back in 1998, Ol’ Dirty Bastard stormed the stage during the Grammy Awards and interrupted the acceptance speech for Song Of The Year with those words. Since then, the phrase “Wu-Tang is for the children” has become iconic and taken on a life of its own. It has been the source of countless memes, punchlines and more. Recently, however, an artist who was inspired by Wu-Tang Clan took the turn of phrase to a deeper place and created a work of art that merged the legendary Wu “W” logo with one of the most important issues facing all children on Earth: climate change.

Tyrese Discusses His Beef With The Rock


Why They Are Planning to Expand Los Angeles County Jail


The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors recently approved the final environmental impact report for the Consolidated Correctional Treatment Facility–otherwise known as the new “mental health jail”. The approval green lights, what opponents to the project are calling “a wasteful spending of over $2.2 billion to build nearly 4,000 new jail cells for an already failing jail system.”

“Los Angeles County is the largest county in the U.S. with the largest jail system in the world,” explained Reform L.A. Jails Campaign Director Jasmyne Cannick. “Instead of planning on how to keep people out of jail we are planning for people to go to jail.”

But the supervisors don’t quite see it that way. The new facility is meant, they said, to become a national model for in the way medical and mental health services are provided to the growing inmate-patient population in the criminal justice system.

“By embarking on this project, the County is invested in...

How A Local Bicycle Club is Making a Difference in Watts, CA


Members of the East Side Riders Bike Club said their one part of their mission is to provide opportunities to vulnerable kids in South Los Angeles by steering them in a new direction. The ten year old volunteer organization has been doing work in South L.A. and Watts that focuses on keeping kids off drugs and from gangs through recreational activities, specifically bike riding said president John Jones III via his website esrbc.org. But just as important as keeping youth away from destructive activities, is the other part of their mission, to steer kids toward activities that help them enrich the communities in which they live.

“ESR aims to provide a comprehensive youth program that seeks to positively impact [things like] inadequate organized recreational outlets for local youth in the Watts area- a community that is rife with high rates of child obesity, asthma and other respiratory challenges amongst youth- lack of resources and lack of safe passage and travel” Jones said.

“This program encourages...

Ed Sheeran's $213.9 million grossing 2018 tour breaks records


If you're feeling just a little bit nostalgic for all those unnecessary news stories earlier in the year confirming that your main man Eddy Sheeran was the most successful recording artist in the world in 2017, then sit down and get ready to digest, dissect, analyse and enjoy this unnecessary confirmation that your dominant dude Eddy Sheeran is the most successful touring artist in the world in 2018.

US live industry trade magazine Pollstar has just published its mid-year touring report, packed full of data about ticket sales and box office income from the biggest touring acts of the year so far. And, somewhat unsurprisingly, Sheeran - along with his trusty guitar and box of pedals - tops the chart with gross income for his touring activity in the first half of the year reported at $213.9 million.

That's $100 million more than...

Experiencing Real Life: A Conversation with Gerald “ReaLife” Beamon By Jhantu Randall


“I could be like people I’ve come across and want the glory for myself, but I want to see those around me shine just as bright as they’re supposed to,” @ReaLife

It’s a dark, gray day with occasional flurries of snow outside the Hollow Earth Radio station on 21st and Union. While the cold outside could cut through bones, inside was a completely different environment. Inside there’s a man wearing a green Seahawks beanie sitting on a couch outside the recording booth chatting with his team before they go on the air. He is Gerald Beamon, known on stage as Tacoma rapper, ReaLife.

I met Gerald about a year ago at a show we were both performing in. His stage presence, words, and charisma were more intoxicating than the drinks at the bar. After getting to know him there, and through various other events, I never thought our paths would cross outside of a venue. So, naturally, when he agreed to let me follow him today I was both nervous and excited for the opportunity to learn from someone I admired.

After introducing me to his team we sat down to talk before his radio show went live. The discussion started off about how the Universe puts blessings on the path(s) of those with vision who work hard to achieve their goals. We talked at length about how any decision you make can lead you back to your original road, so there’s never a wasted opportunity. Becoming further intrigued by this man’s philosophy, I began to ask more questions and took notes as he gave careful and honest thought before answering. While most of us grew up wanting to be the national act we’d hear on the radio, Gerald went another direction. He was inspired by the vibes and allure of the hometown scene.

In Gerald’s youth, Motormouth Jones, a local artist, was one of his biggest influences at the start of his journey writing poetry. He honed his poetry skills in class, but told me that even before that he always had an ability and passion to create. Eventually he would listen to songs on the radio and put his own rhymes over the beats he heard. Gerald mused about how music runs in his family, about how his grandmother was a go-go dancer, his mother was a singer, and his father was a DJ. Now this 35 year old father of 3, who works long days at a moving company, has taken his dream of a music career and turned it into a viable reality. Gerald has expanded his vision and creativity to launch a radio program in just 5 months.

As the show on Hollow Earth Radio KHUHLP 104.9 Seattle begins, Gerald can be seen outside the booth pacing back and forth as he listens to the broadcast. Between song breaks he enters the room and tells everyone what needs to be done, but always with words of encouragement before returning to his production duties. When I asked him about his managerial style he told me about the name he and his artists go by, The Crown of Kings.

“I could be like people I’ve come across and want the glory for myself, but I want to see those around me shine just as bright as they’re supposed to,” he says when I ask him to elaborate. He continues by saying he believes in the creed of ‘Meet one, Teach one’ where he hoped that people he gave an opportunity to would someday go out and do the same for another and watch as it spreads. Hearing all this I asked him what drives him to do this for others? Most people you talk to only are out for themselves, but Gerald made it clear that being a rapper was his first love, his therapy and expression to the world, but the other ventures gave him more control over his overall situation. All of it stems from wanting to build a foundation for his kids and family to build on.

Gerald “Real Life” Beamon is currently booking shows up and down the west coast with his team in hopes of building on the foundation that he has already created in a short amount of time. To hear this artists music for yourself, just go to www.Soundcloud.com/ReaLife253. The melodies of the songs may throw off the casual listener but his lyrics are destined to connect to the essence of what drives someone to make their dreams come true.

Jay-Z & Beyonce's COMBINED Net Worth Is Now Over $1 BILLION


According to a July 12 article, Jay and Bey's combined net worth clocks in at an estimated $1.255 billion. Yes, you've read that correctly. Hip-hop's favorite royal couple are officially Black Bill Gates in the making, with Yonce accounting for $355 million and Hov raking in $900 million.

The Carters' massive wealth is attributed to their several streams of income. Beyoncé's pretax annual earnings total approximately $100 million, largely in part due to her ability to to sell more records and draw larger crowds than her husband. The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour grossed $212 million from nearly two million attendees back in 2014. Not to mention, Bey's athleisure clothing line, Ivy Park, sold out almost immediately upon its launch back in April 2016.

Jay, on the other hand, is quite the investor. The rap mogul has built his empire by founding his own companies, such as TIDAL, as well as owning equity in other large entities. Back in 2015, the Everything Is Love rapper paid a reported $56 million to purchase the streaming service which is now valued at $600 million following an investment by telephone giant Sprint.

Together, the husband-wife duo cash out on...

A Lesson in Humble Leadership


When you’re a leader — no matter how long you’ve been in your role or how hard the journey was to get there — you are merely overhead unless you’re bringing out the best in your employees. Unfortunately, many leaders lose sight of this.

Power, as my colleague Ena Inesi has studied, can cause leaders to become overly obsessed with outcomes and control, and, therefore, treat their employees as means to an end. As I’ve discovered in my own research, this ramps up people’s fear — fear of not hitting targets, fear of losing bonuses, fear of failing — and as a consequence people stop feeling positive emotions and their drive to experiment and learn is stifled.

Take for example a UK food delivery service that I’ve studied. The engagement of its drivers, who deliver milk and bread to millions of customers each day, was dipping while management was becoming increasingly metric-driven in an effort to reduce costs and improve delivery times. Each week, managers held weekly performance debriefs with drivers and went through a list of problems, complaints, and errors with a clipboard and pen. This was not inspiring on any level, to either party. And, eventually, the drivers, many of whom had worked for the company for decades, became resentful.

Take for example a UK food delivery service that I’ve studied. The engagement of its...

How YouTube is Addressing Excessive Plagiarism


It’s no mystery to anyone who has spent time on the site that YouTube has a plagiarism problem.

The company knows it too, which is why Google introduced Content ID back in 2007. Content ID has had a rocky history, though, which may account for the newest tool on the video streaming site: Copyright Match.

The Copyright Match Tool aims to protect YouTubers’ original content from illicit re-uploads. Despite the often devil-may-care attitude that permeates the internet, that original content is legally protected intellectual property. For those who make a living off their original videos, getting duplicate content removed is a matter of survival.

There is only 1 Blockbuster Store Left in the USA?


‘Blockbuster video stores have been officially closing around the country’ sounds like 2003 headline. But in the intervening 15 years, a few have been hanging tough.

Now as two stores close in Alaska, just one store is left standing. That store resides in Bend, Oregon, giving customers one chance to step inside the iconic video rental store before it too closes down for good.

According to a Deadline report, the two stores in Alaska stayed open because they remained profitable. Those Alaska outlets, in Anchorage and Fairbanks, officially close down on Monday (July 16th), and the store leases run out in August.

Did you even know there was a complete full season TV Show about Pasadena, California's local, native music scene? If not, that might be reflective of just how much the local government DOES NOT support it's local arts. So much for shopping local, eh?

Anyhoo, there is, in fact, a complete 10-Episode Season of the 'Pasadena Music Scene' TV Show. It was a show produced by Mistah Wilson of ThaWilsonBlock Magazine. It was a creative side project he put together while interning at Pasadena Media. 

The shows consist of raw, actual footage of local artists FROM Pasadena, California. A lot of the footage features rap freestyles, bagpipe performances, showcases & events, and visual interviews. It may not have been produced for syndicated entertainment, but it is a living documentary of local musicians from the great city of Pasadena, California.
