New York New York Big City of Dreams! They say if you can make it in New York, you can make it anywhere. I’m not one to get personal on the blog post, but sometimes it just feels right. I would like to tell you how I got introduced to Hip Hop. It was the summer of 6th grade and music had yet to become my passion. In fact I hated Piano lessons and Trumpet lessons. I would much rather play basketball and Mario Bros on my Nintendo. My cousin Phil who was from New York lived with us during this summer break ,while he went to school out here. His best friend was Michael. They had grown up sharing the same passion for music. Well Michael got a job at Def Jam working directly with Russell and Lyor as Def Jam started breaking Hip Hop. Before I knew it was tagging along with Phil and hanging out with the likes of LL Cool J, Public Enemy, and 3rd Bass to name a few. All of a sudden basketball and video games took second place to Rap Music. I fell in love with Hip Hop, It Got Me Open. Over the years I picked Michael’s brain about the Music Business and I knew I wanted to elevate my passion to a Higher Level. Over the years as the Music Industry changed, and Michael could not find a way to Straighten It Out, he decided to pursue other career moves. He had just got a new job working for a business firm and was super excited about being married and a little baby girl that was on her way. Unfortunately Michael did not get a chance to meet his daughter. His first day of work happened to be 9/11 at the twin towers. R.I.P Michael, God Lives Through your beautiful daughter and it is my honor to tell her the role he had in my life and the path I chose. So Today we celebrate the lives of those who perished in 9/11. “ Where Brooklyn At?” Biggie
