Man. So....Im here at Quad, just got my Sesame Chicken from the chinese restaurant. These fools..lol...man.....ok...so the delivery guy comes up to studio c, where im chillin, gettin ready for Steele and Yuk to come thru. This man gives me my food...the total was 6.80. I gave him 8 dollars man. 8 dollars. This man has the nerve to tell me, "thats not a good tip." Thats atleast what he was trying to say in his broken english. "Not a good tip, only 1 dollar!" I told him "heres a good tip, get an education bruh. Or intern here at quad." This is some 45 year old man riding a bike around manhattan. Get outta here wit that son.
They start demanding more money now?? It aint like i didnt give him a tip at all, he wanted MORE money. My assistant for the night, Corey, was lost as well.

Now...This is what a producer goes through.

I took out this cat's name cuz I ain't the one to put someone CrazY on blast, but i will put this on regular blast. Nothing personal to you bruh, really. I hope the same success that i mentioned in our AIM convo, but damnit, when will niggas stop f**kin playin themselves. Just peep. It starts off with me simply making a joke about entering a contest, only to end up congratulating this person who I have known for a some years, but has never been my homie, close friend, even affiliate. I don't call him to chill or hang out, or expect him at my bday party.Just a cat around the way doing his thing thats gets respect when Im out and about. Read.

1:11:42 PM NeMo Strange: let me jump in the street life battle son
1:11:46 PM NeMo Strange: i represent.
1:15:08 PM Rapper/BattleHost: lol
1:16:08 PM NeMo Strange: how much is it to enter son. i got it.
1:16:20 PM Rapper/BattleHost: $30
1:16:57 PM NeMo Strange: to enter the street life battle? it should be 2 dollars, same price as a subway ride, nah mean.
1:28:01 PM Rapper/BattleHost: lol
1:28:51 PM NeMo Strange: congrats on all, much money and sucess to ya.
1:32:07 PM Rapper/BattleHost: you should send me some beats sir
1:34:37 PM NeMo Strange: for ur showcase?
1:35:11 PM Rapper/BattleHost: for me to check out
1:37:57 PM NeMo Strange: no doubt. nothin personal brother, but i would have to charge you. I hope you don't take that the wrong way.
Rapper/BattleHost Changed status to Idle (1:52:12 PM)
and never returns.

notice there's no "thanks man" response to me congratuling him. Just goes straight for the jug my man. BEATS. Soon as i say bring up dough, nigz disappear. Atleast have the decency to say "no doubt, i aint got that" or "i wasn't looking to spend much dough" or something.

THIS IS WHAT I DO FOR A LIVING. THIS IS MY CRAFT! who goes to college to be an engineer, to work for free????
man i gotta pay rent, phone bills, heat bills, electro bills, water n all that sh*t, and it aint cheap in BK, NY.

Imma start forwarding IM's to my manager and call it a night.

IMAKEMADBEATS 08....ehthing changes with it.

Steele of Smif n Wessun n Yuk

In the lab this friday. Should be great. I should have some kinda video of that up afterwards, but once again, like the previous video, it won't be for long.

I have been doing a lot of mixing lately, some for Butta Verses up n coming album to be released on Domination Recordings, and others ranging from Bollywood Movie scores to new artists on Pharrell's Star Trak label. Its been an interesting first month in my new home in Brooklyn. I see a lot outside of my window i've never seen outside of a window, cuz i've never lived on a main street in my life. Here, I've seen anything from random beatdowns, to not-so-sane people yelling "helicopter!" over and over again, to the same old lady asking me for change 1531413 times a day, and not reallizing im the same person. Some of these things we had in Memphis, but some of this stuff is just strange. The 4th day i was in this apt, i saw a man fall from like the 20th flight of some building in the distance, then another man fall right after him. The first man died (rip) and the second lived. I have also seen snow go 100% horizontal....and not FALL at all...just fly to the left...down the street. Butta V also saw something flying from the sky around midnight one night. The sincerity in his face and eyes led to me believe somethin was about to go down!....its all good though.

And now a message from one of our sponsors:

"NeMo i need some of that food brother. You got me on that? Get me some beats!" - Spliff Star @3:47am

Is it me or do cats take themselves wayyyy too seriously man. More and more i see it. I aint saying be the most modest "let a brother get the shirt off ya back" type of person, but damn, don't let YOU trip YOU up.
It aint that damn serious.

....At least dont do that where im from:)

Random thought: If it was up to me, I would never show my face in this rap sh*t. I'd just be a sillouhette (spelling?) of myself. Rap dudes is so caught up in themselves man. So caught up, when you reach out, they deny you, not knowing who you are and what you bring to the table. AND THESE DUDES IS NOBODY. Sillouhette huh? hmmmm... You know what, thats not a bad idea.

hmmm....**wheels are spinning**

AND ...
a pic for the road....TzaRizM, J-Zone, Critical, and ....IMAKEMADBEATS.
