In the music game you can waste your lifetime and allowance playing around in the studio. I can write
a book on the amount of people, hours and dollars wasted blowing my vocal chords in a session that went nowhere. From producers
I fell out with, some who turned out to be crooks; and the multiple singers/rappers who were not cut out for longevity
that ended up pregnant or in the military, or just decided to change their life. All these occurences while my music and my
life goes un accounted for. All the hard work i have to explain to my loved ones that I put in-- while they think im doing
just like the rest of them and havbing a good time. Making the music is just 20 percent of the process and its the only "good
time". All the rest of my blood sweat and tears over 15 years has been trying to make use of it. Well if nothing I ever
do can stabelize my financial burdens, atleast I have the scars and the glory to share with you. These are my recorded studio
is the sound behind the incredible songs Sweat, SuperNova, and Minions. He also produced Your love is a drug and many other
hits for other artists. Follow me on my journey in the BRONX new york, during a special time in my life where I made history
with producer Itill Wiggins.
2014 was the ten year mark of collaborations with the super producer,
JOE COX aka Da Barbarian-Backpacka HECTIC one. But that is not where the chapter ends. This summer we have
plans to officially record music videos for the string of hits we created together, soon to be available on I- tunes. Hectic
is located in Atlanta Ga and is available for bookings contact him through his you tube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/hecvisiontv
2015 was the beginning of something completely new with
the producer/rapper and director FEVALINO. Fevalino produced my unreleased and most highly anticipated song LIES. I am excited
about where the rest of our music innovations will go. Stay tuned andf subscribe to my studio magazines for updates.
I am not certain about the latest
single released; J. Nolan drops new music like war does bombs. But if you click on the link (to the left), there is direct
access to his face book page and website. He is also mentioned in FOCUS Magazine, on POLY-Nation. Most
recently I contacted jamar about a long distance, music collaboration for the website which he respectfully declined.

T.I. and the Holly-HOOD shuffle
Over 20 Years ago Robert Towsend wrote and starred in a film called “Holly Wood Shuffle”, satirizing the
black actors of Hollywood and how they all play a role in the denigrating black culture. This used to be a problem you could
not avoid if you wanted to be a working –black actor. There is even a name for the genre of film created back then,
which is commonly referred to as black sploitation.Through the 80’s, many black moguls (Spike Lee)
were able to shift their positions of power, giving them the authority to write, produce and even distribute their own product
on certain platforms. Since then the entertainment industry had a superfluous of actors and rappers, such
as Ice Cube, Queen Latifah, and Snoop DOG, who have cleaned their style up in real life by either progressing
in careers that are un commonly successful for blacks in entertainment, Or just revamping how they live
all together- in order to influence the youth . Well it would seem T.I. is participating in a little bit of both. On the business
front he is bringing in a healthy check from VH-1 with his hit reality television show “T.I and the family Hustle”;
displaying his life as a hard working father. Supposedly, He is merging his obligation with the fundamental elements of living
that life honest. In the show he teaches his sons (and daughter) about how a woman should be treated, and how to respect others.
He even teaches them the value of money, respect, setting boundaries, telling lies and being humble. But as of recent he is
back to his old “trapping” ways releasing an album(2013) called “Trouble man: Heavy is the head” where
in the first few sentences of one of his songs he began glorifying crack sales and popping “niggas” in the eye.
When the VH1 show was in its infancy, he was interviewed on the Wendy Williams show, telling the world how positive his life
was going to be, shortly after he was released from prison, for having military weapons with silencers in his possession-
which he only got 2 years for, but swears he never snitched on an inside agent who was selling him weapons of mass destruction,
during the countries alleged war on terror. (Yes, that’s something to digest), often evading questions when Wendy entertained
his criminally intense saga. He just wanted to promote his happy family life and new TV show. And everything seemed like it
was taking a turn for the best when the show got a second season and he stayed out of jail for a while. But he had no problem
sharing his true feelings with a local NYC radio station that insinuated he was a snitch and a hypocrite when it came to the
topic of gun laws. [see video below] Does the self-proclaimed, King of the south, deserve the royal gauntlet that he demands
credit for? Or is he asking for way too much respect he didn’t earn? Don’t be like him, you pick a side and tell
us what you think.

I have been thinking about dying my hair blonde. It seems like if I am going to live up to my name as (polystylez) I have
to have more than 1 everything, including hair color. So give me some suggestions on colors if you think that is a good look.
Some people dont like the rap music because they are so used to me being a singer, but I always have so much to say, it cant
be put in a song... Plus it is the core of my artistry. I was a rapper before I was a singer. So with that said.. I have
decided to re-open my RJDJ account and create some more freestyles, Look forward to a CAN of BEATS mixed tape Vol 1
and 2 (finally completed)
Nothing is more glorifying to an artist than to have LIVED...the message
Yesterday morning I get a call from my producer in New Jersey,
who has ended our project, for 2013 claiming that one of his clients was offended by our affiliation. It seems that I did
an album a while back called the HUMAN SEX TOY, and someone felt uncomfortable about the songs I did in it. Well the interesting part about
it all is that ... if they would have listened to the songs on the album, they would have realized that the entire concept
behind the album was a message that they helped me to prove, because the songs have NO words and the videos have NO erotic
images. Yet I was being judged based off of something they felt on the surface. The point of making that album was to
gain attention to begin with. (guess I was OUT OF BOUNDS for being myself.) Despite everything else I have done, from comedy, acting, journalism, photography,
comic illustration, r and b and rock music,...etc THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERED was an album that had the word SEX on it...
again, I had proven my own message through art. And I am very un abashed
about it's consequence. That is the price we pay as true artists...we share
the experiences that we are living through music, the Human sex toy is a musical example of how people feel about the most
vital element of human nature which is re-production. Desired in the dark tunnels of the train station but embarrased to admit
is a guilty pleasure in public.
Everybody is always plunging into something not knowing what lies beneath
the surface. Today I got to thinking about "ART" and all the people who claim to be a part of it. (part
timers )After watching a news report about people who are losing their jobs because of the stuff that they put out
on the internet, crying that it discriminates against art, without knowing what art is. If a NOUN can stop
you from expressing yourself you are not an artist, you are a politician. What many people don't understand
about art is that the value is measured in the blood sweat and tears of the person who created it. That's why replicas
are worthless, because they lack the age, and history, and story, behind the ORIGINAL.
people pass me on
the train everyday and ask me what I want to do with my life (im doing it); "what is my ultimate goal"? (im acheiving
it). My success is not defined by a plaque on the wall.
My self worth is not defined by a checking account, and my heart and soul is not measued on rather I give to charities
bleach my hair blonde, or say the word BITCH too much. And I have lost friends GLADLY, for all of those
reasons that simply lie on the surface.
The last time
I did a "professional show", I played B.B. Kings in Time Square, NY; what a night to remember. A booking
agent saw me in the subway and said that he loved my music and that there is no reason that I should be in the train. I told
him "everybody sais that, but there is a reason why I am still here" And I proved him right, because he arranged
for me to have a show where I was paid handsomely and offered food and drinks as well. But the club manager looked at me like
I was a bum when i walked in because there was just me and a guitar. The people loved my music, and asked me for autographs,
kisses and phone numbers but when it came time for a second booking which I was very persistent about, I was told that
MY style, was not right for the atmosphere...(later on googled
FOXY BROWN, performing at the same venue) Really?... why don't yall google BB King and see what he plays, we have the same
act. (BLUES GUITAR), I then realized that not only was I being cheated out of a chance because of my lack of popularity, but
that I was also a LIVING PROOF of what I had told the booking agent in the train days before he tried to prove a point by
giving me the opportunity, instead I
had proven my own message through art.
OUT TO FOXY BROWN BY THE WAY, NO DISRESPECT ABOUT THE REFERENCE I USED, BUT HOW CAN YOU TELL A BLUES SINGER IN THE TRAIN HE
DOESN'T BELONG AT BB KINGS, AND THEN HIRE FOXY BROWN? (WHO I LOVE)--she's not blues shes rap, thats all im saying, o..oh
an she has a birthday this week too.. on the 6th, happy Bday FOX
