I was talking to Pharoahe Monch manager on facebook and I came across this timeless song. Classic Ish.
I went to it starts with the DJ last year and this was a very informative event. I learned so much from all the different panelists. If you are involved in the music industry this is an event you want to go to.

Round 1: Business Fundamentals

Music is a Business. Whether you’re an artist, DJ, manager or producer, you are a business. As entrepreneurs, our panelists understand the importance of being a registered business, having a certified accountant and marketing strategies as some key factors to a successful career. The panelists have a lot to share about self-employment, self promotion and developing a strong brand. This round will provide a forum to education and advice on maintaining an effective business plan.

Day 1 – Madlib
I can honestly say that if J Dilla never met Madlib……we wouldn’t be listening to the same music today. Now with that said sure a lot of producers know of Dilla & Madlib but the connection these 2 had through their music was incredible. If you were listening in last night we started the show off with this track off Dilla & Madlib’s album Champion Sound. Half the album is Dilla rhyming over Madlib…and vice versa and believe me ALL tracks are dope. Madlib’s career is all over the place really. Not only does he produce hip hop but also R&B, Jazz, Soul, etc etc. He’s got over 10 different aliases (explained in a later post) which are all connected to completely different projects that he’s produced and arranged himself. He’s probably the most creative producer I’ve ever encountered. Please turn this up as loud as possible….check that sample use of the horns….and that bass line……OFFICIAL
