CEO of DuckDown Records, Dru Ha
As CEO and co-founder of DuckDown Records, Dru Ha is one of the most influential entrepreneurs in hip-hop. He’s helped influence a flood of independent record labels that continue to develop their own empires and hold weight against the majors.
I caught up with Dru recently and had a great conversation with him in which he discussed today’s music business, getting Bootcamp on Twitter, and President Barack Obama.
Tha Bizness: Henny & Dow Jones
Producers, Henny & Dow Jones, better known as, Tha Bizness, have been making a lot of noise recently – namely, for their production of Young Jeezy‘s smash hit, “My President (Is Black)“, and Young Money‘s debut single, “Every Girl“.
As producers whose work is quickly taking over your iPod’s storage space, I asked them to share some insight for Producers Week.
If you’re an aspiring artist, producer, DJ or professional, you should already know how important conferences, showcases and contests can be. If you don’t already know; then I’m telling you now; they’re important.
I make it a point to attend several of these events, even if it doesn’t necessarily pertain to my profession, mainly because of the networking opportunities they present. If you know how to carry yourself and you have the necessary self-promo tools (business cards, CD, DVD, etc), events like these should not be missed.
If you’re in Atlanta, or will be on September 11, 2008, make sure you attend The Demo Clinic being held at Django.
