Q: Who are some of the artist you represent and why should my readers listen to them?
A: Some of the artist I work with are Chris Brown, Tyga, Trey Songz, Lil Wayne and Fabolous to name a few. There names are already out there. Sometimes you may not hear the song we did cause its not spinning on radio but might be on a mixtape, album or on the net to hear.

Q: . What do you like about the music industry?

A: I always was in music. I went to a performing arts school and played in bands. I just took a liking to the production side of more.
Q: What is the biggest change you have seen in the industry?
