Music 2.0 Is Full Of Sh… Sheep

Music 2.0 Is Full of Sh... Sheep

I’m about to break one of the cardinal sins of blogging: I’m going to tell you why I haven’t updated recently.

I know I’m notorious for my gaps in posting, but that was usually due to time management issues, or writer’s block, or laziness. This time it was for a different reason.

I’m annoyed.

TwitterRant

There have been a few things going on recently that got me thinking some things over.

So, I decided to do what any self-reflecting person would do in today’s world – I vented via a TwitterRant.

Rather than re-typing it or paraphrasing, I figure I’ll just post a screenshot of it and share it with the 5 of you who aren’t on Twitter. (Remember to start at the bottom and move up)

Konvict Muzik's Bu Shows You The Life Of A Young Music Exec

Last year, I featured the big homie, Bu; co-CEO of Konvict Muzik.

Not only did that feature get some attention, but a lot of people started asking for more information about him, his ventures and his everyday life.

Well, Bu decided it was time, and so he recently joined Twitter & launched his own YouTube channel.

Make sure to subscribe to his updates on both sites, as he’s going to be offering some insight into his life as a young music executive.

Ryan Leslie Knows How To Connect With His Fans

leslie_1

One of the biggest questions every artist, manager & label rep asks themselves on a daily basis is, “how can we further connect with our fans?”

Amongst all the teams out there, one of the best examples I can think of (and one whom I mention in nearly every meeting) is Ryan Leslie.

From his initial YouTube videos, to his MySpace push, to his Twitter profile and blog – he’s consistently shown that he’s one of the very few, that truly does “get it”.

Last night, R. Les posted a message on Twitter, telling fans he would purchase & autograph an iPod for any fans that met him at the 24-hour Apple Store in NYC in the next 15 minutes.

And he kept his word.

Peep the video:

The Man Behind 50 Cent's Social Media Empire

thisis50

Love him or hate him, ever since 50 Cent first launched his media channel, ThisIs50.com,  nearly every other artist ran to launch their own Ning site in hopes of copying his success.

While others are frantically trying to emulate ThisIs50.com, the man behind the site and its success, Chris “Broadway” Romero, is continuing to move on and break new grounds.

Broadway was recently interviewed by TechZulu, where he offered some insight into the success and motivation of ThisIs50.com.

Mistah Fab – Hit Me On Twitter

mistahfab

Now that Kelso has become the first Twitter user to hit 1 million followers and Oprah has dedicated an entire show to Twitter, Mistah Fab drops what’s probably the best song themed around social media.

There’ve been a couple songs out there about social media, but let’s be real – most of them suck. They make for fun parodies, but aren’t actual songs that you would listen to.

This one’s dope though; it’s definitely going on the iPod.

Shout out to Rob-E on the production!

Listen to the song below:

New Design

I just wanted to drop a quick post to give a major shoutout and thank you to the homie Zilla a.k.a Mr. I Built Tha Innanets, for helping me make some changes to the site that I’ve been struggling with for the past 3 weeks.

As you can see, the site has a whole new look to it. It’s not stopping here though, as I plan to make a few more changes in the layout and design, as well as the content. (I haven’t finished tweaking all the colours & etc, so it won’t remain as dark as it is now)

I think this site will always be in some constant state of development though. I like changing things up and keeping it fresh, so this is my outlet for that.

Also, I want to say thank you to everybody on Twitter who offered their help when I mentioned that I needed some help with the site; namely @mizrik, @webpres, @robo3k & @littleavenue. You guys rock and I really appreciate all your help!

Btw, what do you guys think of the new Twitter section on the top right of the page? I did it myself, so I’m proud of it lol. (Roll over it with your mouse)

Let me know what you think; I’m interested in hearing your comments.

Twitterati Of The Week Feature

Check this out. I was this week’s feature on NerdLike.com‘s Twitterati of The Week!

Excerpt:

What is your favorite 80s song?
I’d have to say Billie Jean. Back then, I had this little leather baby jacket with zippers everywhere & a t-shirt with a massive picture of Michael when he had the jheri curl.

I also have to mention “Pour Some Sugar On Me” by Def Leppard. I was probably as obsessed with that song as I was with “Billie Jean”.
