Remembering Allen Carroll
He repped MCA Records back in the day. In the early 80's, when I first got a job at Seattle's 1250 KFOX, he was one of the few record promoters who flew from LA to meet with me, give me vinyl & cds, take me out to eat and send me Gold plaques.
He BELIEVED in me.
I learned a lot from him on how to be a great promoter.

This man had the gift of gab and could convince anyone to buy your product.
I'm going to miss him and I'll never forget him.
Thank you for being an awesome role model to me. I owe a lot to you.
Thank you Allen (far right, with red tie).

If there's a story or movie that encourages you to NEVER give up, even after many rejections, this is it!
Michael Pena is easily becoming one of my favorite actors. You will love him in "A Million Miles Away,"
the true life story of
Jose Hernandez, a farm worker who became an engineer & an astronaut.
This will give you hope & ambition & if you're not feeling so great physically or emotionally, TRUST ME this will uplift your spirits. It did for me!
2 Thumbs Up

From the movie “A MILLION MILES AWAY” 
5 ingredients for success:  
1. Find your goal. 2. Know how far you are.

3. Draw a roadmap.
4. If you don't know how, learn.

5. When you think you've made it, you probably have to work harder.

Thanks for continuing to support indie rap music and the Rap Attack DJ’s.
What is good my Hip Hop friends!!? We just got done with summer and Labor Day weekend has come and gone. That means kids are back to school and football season is upon us! Plus, Hip Hop is winning in 2023! I want to share my incredible weekend here in Los Angeles.

Stacks Image 4619

On Sunday, September 3, the city was aglow in Hip Hop love. Delicious Vinyl (yes, that iconic record label!) are the proud owners of two pizza establishments in L.A. One is on West Adams, in the heart of the city. For many years now, they have curated and hosted an amazing block party that shows off why Hip Hop is a universal culture. They close a section of the block that is in front of the restaurant, bring out lots of cool local vendors and put on one amazing show for everyone to enjoy.
This year, the 4
th installment, was no different. On stage they had DJ Jam, Chris “The Glove” Taylor, Medusa, Kali Madden, Yo-Yo, Medusa, Georgia Anne Muldrow, DJ Battlecat, D Smoke with a special appearance by the God MC Rakim and headlined by Arrested Development. It was non-stop music and great energy. Amazing music all day long, one dope artist after another. This festival never disappoints with the music and vibes that it creates. Huge shout out to Delicious Vinyl, Delicious Pizza and the folks over in the West Adams (Los Angeles) community for doing such an amazing job.
Next year, you need to be there!!

Following that festival, I was not done yet and headed down the road to the Kia Forum in Ingelwood for the F.O.R.C.E. tour featuring Salt N Pepa, Ice T, L.L. Cool J and Rakim, all backed by the amazing DJ skills of DJ Z-Trip and DJ Jazzy Jeff, along with The Roots band. This show was another non-stop collection of dope Hip Hop music. Each artist rocked their set and the fans sang along to all of the songs, making the experience so much fun.
Needless to say, I had an amazing day and night of Hip Hop culture
Well, that is it for me this time! Peace and Love!
