somebody is always getting choked up on them Rhianna Q's & A's...

...on to a better observation...

That's amazing that you got an ABC Interview. National television broadcasting to millions of viewers is great exposure for someone who hasn't even released his LP yet.

..Thank Me Later will do amazing in sales...

Whats Going On Drake, Ima big fan of yours and been rockin with you since I heard replacement girls and thought it was just a Trey Songz track, lol. As soon as I Found out who you were I went and searched for you online and found Room For Improvement and been bumping Drake ever since. I even put everybody I knew on to your music and told them, “this is that dude.” After looking at this interview I can see that you have what it takes to do some pretty big things. I can see more confidence now than in earlier interviews, or that could just be from doing so many interviews. But with the right marketing and timing, I feel you could be that “legend” you talked about. When I think of people becoming the next big thing, it all depends on the right time they enter the game, the delivery, and their flexibility. If you look at people like Jay-Z, and Kanye the reason they are still relevant is due to those three things I just named. If you look at people who were huge at one point, but couldn’t hold the test of time like DMX, Ludacris, Nelly and etc. they didn’t change with the times. Jay-Z came out with the whole mafia theme with the drug dealing, and boss type deal, but as he started to make money he knew he had to transcend from that style and talk about things that he is more comfortable with. He attracted males and females, because even though he had female tracks he still kept it real enough so that the males would be able to vibe with it as well. As the time went on he had a good ear for new sounds and great producers that produced something that was different and new for the audience. Every CD he had a new sound but it was still the same Jay-Z we listened to in Reasonable Doubt. With Kanye the same thing… All people were listening to was that Down South Crunk music. But Kanye started a new trend by talking about things people could actually relate to. Kanye made a great statement on 106th and Park when Graduation came out. He stated “My music is like a time capsule, Whatever is hot that year, I mix it in with my album, so years down the line when you pop in my cd, you start to reflect on what happened that year and you can relate. Most of the people who don’t last have over aggressive styles that can’t be altered so when the times change their style can’t. That’s why I believe you can be a big deal, because it’s only rare when keeping it all the way 100 can make it to the mainstream, but when it does it’s almost like the next big thing since sliced bread. The one thing you have to maintain is your image. People reflect on who you are by what you do. And people listen no matter what so in interviews you have to make sure what you say is strong and well thought out. Most of the time, people only get one chance and it can be blown by saying something that could offend a fan or listener. Another thing that made people like Jay-Z and Kanye such big names was by keeping a low profile. The less people see and know about you the better, because it keeps suspense up about you as a person, not just a artist. Also the less time in front of the camera the less amount of time you speak and you won’t slip up and say the wrong thing. I believe this is a vital time for you right now and having full control over everything you do is great because that is what hurts a lot of artist now. I saw a interview with Trey Songz and he is one of my favorite artist. He stated that by him not doing so well on his first two albums or them not exceeding what they expected, its more pressure on this album to do well. And that’s when the labels start digging in to your albums more and making you produce music that just hot for the moment and not good wholesome music. Trey is a awesome artist, and I just hate it when the mixtapes are better than albums because the labels dig so much in to the albums and they lose their creative control as an artist.

soulfulcat said...

But full control is awesome as an artist, and people get to actually view who you are, because you didn’t start off with a fake image so they can see you through your music. A lot depends on your first single, because its almost like your first impression on what they are going to receive from Drake as an artist. What has helped out a lot of people for example, The Clipse, Young Jeezy, Souljah Boy, and Kanye is a very catchy and some can say “pop” track that people can remember. But with these people I named they kept it 100 even though it was a simple track. The Clipse had Grindin’, Young Jeezy had Soul Survivor, and so on and so on. But even though they was talking about something the majority didn’t relate to, it still stood out. A crazy club/pop track with Lil Wayne would be crazy as a first single, then a Excuse Me Miss/I know track with Jay-Z and Pharrell would rock out as a second single, and a Female R&B track with Trey Songz would kill it as a third single, and with all your hype you would definitely get a fourth single so a cool soulful track with kanye maybe something dedicated to moms. But man my hat goes off to you, I wishing and hoping for the best, because the outcome of your future will determine the future of hip-hop.

Today, many of the uk Tiffany from the first decades silver charms was in business are prized collectibles with a value far beyond their original purchase price. Some of Tiffany charms are still kept in their original boxes, a light blue container that was recognized among jewelry enthusiasts. This color is still used for silver sets packaging in the 21st century.

ROUTE 66 or Digital Versatile Disc is far better than the typical CDs since it stores nth times of information compared with the CDs. It is more precise in terms of compressing videos, pictures, and others alike. ROUTE 66 DVD display incomparable quality compared with VHS and CDs, thus making it convenient and attracts more consumers. There are standards to consider before deciding what type of ROUTE 66 DVD COLLECTION to purchase.
