Dear Hollywood: Michael Jackson Was Black (and Proud)

Originally published on 1/29/16 at:   The casting of a white man as Michael Jackson in a TV series set in 2001 is more than unnerving. It is actually a complete contradiction of who MJ was in 2001 and throughout his life.

The industry was shaken by his outingContinue reading

Do want to get your music stolen or what?

  So here’s the thing, I’ve been doing promo for people for almost 10 years now. The majority of my clientele are music artists. I’ll be the first to say that I’m only speaking from my own opinions.
