Big Sean talks OVO Fest & Overcoming Fear [The Come Up Show: Canada]

Shout out to our neighbors from the North, The Come Up Show for coming through with another dope interview. This time featuring Detroit's own, Big Sean.

"Big Sean sits down with The Come Up Show in London, ON during his Canadian Tour. He speaks on the times he was full of fear and impatience coming up as an artist and why he feels the journey is just as important as the prize. Big Sean also shared his excitement of performing at OVO Fest and how he measures success. The interview ended off with if Big Sean had $100 million would he still be hungry as an artist? What do you think?"

Termanology "50 Bodies pt 5"

well DAMN it's been a minute since I updated this. I've been on the road off and on the past month or 2 and I don't have other people blog here. It keeps essince the essence of Essince, n'ahmean?

BUT, as I prepare for this show with Kevin Gates, I thought I'd share a li'l sum'in fo' ya eyes n listenin holes.

Termanology drops the latest installment of his 50 Bodies series:


Hudson Mohawke "Very First Breath" ft. Irfane [Scotland - France]

Scottish producer, Hudson Mohawke has recently been working with Pusha T, Drake and more (he's also affiliated with Kanye West and G.O.O.D. Music). I'm digging this.


Fetty Wap "Show You"

I'm on my way back from Seattle. I was involved with the sold out Boosie show at Showbox SoDo (check my IG for photos) but while I was waiting for my 5:10am flight to Milwaukee (where I'm currently posting this) I was using the MyMixtapez app and found this song by Fetty Wap. Something about that "Trap Queen" song hooked me. Maybe the melody? Singing? Who knows...but it hooked me enough to wonder if dude was a 1-hit I clicked on "Show You" and IMMEDIATELY became a fan and downloaded a mixtape of his without listening. I can't stop playing this.

Don't believe me? Let me "Show You" (good one, E)


Kehlani "Alive" ft Coucheron (US x Norway)

"Damn, I feel alive!"

It felt so good to get back on the road. This past weekend I was a guest speaker at the 12th Annual Southern Entertainment Awards and it was great (re)connecting with people, setting up new business, and just seeing something new.

I stumbled upon this song and we all need that feel good every once in a while. Produced by Norwegian producer, Coucheron, CA's Kehlani comes Alive.


Straight Outta Compton (trailer)

I was unsure when I heard they were shooting this movie. I was excited because I'd just finished reading Jerry Heller's Autobiography and a friend/former client told me he'd auditioned for this movie that was casting then. The story is incredible but the recent biographies have been a little...less than stellar but THIS trailer has restored my faith.


Young Buck x Dj Whoo Kid "10 Bullets"

He's back! I interviewed Buck and G-Unit a few weeks ago on our biweekly ECMD Entertainment Conference Calls (shout out to The Super Star Maker, OG Kermit Henderson) so I've been excited to hear new music from Young Buck. I love his debut! It was incredible. This is slick. Check it out.

2Pac Crewneck

All about this 100% polyester 2Pac Crewneck. I could rock this all day.

You know what? I just might! (especially at THAT price).
