Whats good ya'll! so i know i am a little late on this, but if you didn't already know, twista has a newer song out entitled "I Can Make You Say". This song is a mid tempo banger that features prince in a sample heard frequently through out the tune. Since the song leaked, many people are quick to say the song is a Chicago collab starring Twista and produced by Kanye West.
BUT it really is a slap Doc Savage sold to Twista (GMG Entertainment)for his upcoming album. Sources have said that since the prince sample could not be cleared, the song has been used on a mixtape to promote the upcoming album.....(Problem. Doc Savage was not notified about this). The contract basically stated that Doc Savage would get 1 pt on the album, production credits, and $1200. Mr. Savage received his money at least six months ago, but was not notified about the mix up with the song not being cleared. As a businessman myself, I would say that is unacceptable and would likely do some things about that but Doc seems to be satisfied with his money, so what can I do. But just so you know who's music it really is that you like. Doc Savage made that beat. We may make a video about this situation soon enough seeing how we have the beat on Fruity Loops and the contract, but i figured i would throw this up for now. Whether Kanye was involved in taking credit or not I don't know but if it were me, I would clear it up quick to avoid getting a bad rep.

Okay...I am not going to be long winded with this, but I have a few things to say about the passing of my Idol...Michael Jackson. One, I cannot believe this is happening...so soon. I used to tell everyone that beyond the passing of my mom, dad, grandmother, etc, Michael Jackson, would be right up there with them. He is the only person I would be interested in going to a concert for. Ever since I was 4 years old, my aunts told me how I used to sing "Man In The Mirror", in the mirror everytime it played. I was doing the moonwalk with my friends in the hallways of my school in my wingtips...in highschool, I wore one of my church usher gloves down the hallways (even though they weren't studded), just because, it was like Mike...I never met him, but I feel like I lost apart of myself...
I know there is a lot of opinion surrounding the life of the King, and I feel most of it was bullshit. I am going to go as far as saying Michael Jackson could have lived a long, happy life, but he wasn't happy, and it was 1. Because of the media...and 2. The people that believed the media...and if you are one of those guilt participants...yes...then I am talking to YOU. Michael Jackson, if you did not notice, had a child spirit...he was almost innocent in my opinion. People were constantly trying to take advantage of him because he seemed so oblivious and I HATE the people who did this to him...yes...HATE the people who did this. Whether it be those of all social and ethnic backgrounds...He was a damn legend, and the overwhelming majority of the negativity that was spewed was in the pursuit of a green dollar...so from me to you...if you are the guilty person...Fuck You...You Killed Michael...
I hate the music industry folks who banned his music in the states, saying his album(s) flopped when they went platinum in every other country in the world. I Hate You too...because now you are going to make money off of his passing with "Greatest Hit's Albums"...I Hate You. I am saddened by the stress he must have constantly felt when people looked at him and said "wacko jacko"...you guys should be ASHAMED.
I can go on and on, but to sum it up, ever since I was a little kid, anything unreasonably negative said about M.J. I took it just as seriously as if he were my brother, and I miss him just the same. I actually teared up when I heard the news. I will forever be saddened by his untimely death and he will never never never be forgotten. I miss you M.J...the King...is gone, and I truly believe I will have a chip on my shoulder for the rest of my life towards those who disrespected him, because it really shows the truly disgusting and unfortunately, familiar face of human nature......I'm ashamed.
Mike...my whole family misses you. Thank you for your inspiration, influence on other artist, talent, stage presence, style, and innocence. There will be none closer to you in influence for at least the next 100 years, and you will be remembered until the end of time...man......

BREAKING: Max B Found Guilty In 2006 Murder Case, "[He] Took His Verdict Like A Man" | SOHH.com
Shared via SOHH.com
Former Byrd Gang associate Charles "Max B" Wingate has reportedly been found guilty on multiple felony murder conspiracy charges stemming from a fatal 2006 robbery.
While details are still scarce, the rapper has reportedly been detained by police after being read a guilty verdict Tuesday (June 9) morning.
Max B's verdict was announced just moments ago in the Bergen County Court House. He along with his brother were found guilty of 9 out of 11 counts. Max B was detained immediately. His sentencing date is set for July 30, 2009. Witnesses state Max B kept his head up and "took his verdict like a man". He did not break down once and remained strong through the entire verdict. His attorney plans to appeal the verdict. (Hip Hop Stan)
Max previously spoke on his legal case and prepared for his trial earlier this year.
"I'm just gonna leave it up to God and my lawyer Gerald Saluti, you know," he said in an interview. "Everything will work out. I'm just gonna let him do his job. I'm here on time. I'm at every court appearance, you know, I'm just here. People stay strong for me. Keep the support up." (Max B TV)
It was Max' former girlfriend who accepted a plea deal and implicated him in a fatal robbery.
Gina Conway and two others were charged with murder after a botched robbery at the Holiday Inn on Route 4 ended in the shooting death of one of the victims in September 2006. Conway met David Taylor and Allan "Jay" Plowden and told her boyfriend that the two men drove flashy cars and carried a lot of cash. The boyfriend, Charly "Max B" Wingate then recruited an associate to rob Taylor and Plowden, prosecutors said. (North Jersey News)
Max's laywer, Gerald Saluti, previously spoke with SOHH about Max's trial.
"It doesn't hurt his case in the least bit. You're talking about a person facing anywhere from 30 years to life basically attempting to snitch against Max and Kelvin Leerdam," Saluti said. "It is our position that Max B will be completely vindicated after the trial, which I think will be starting in April -- I relish the opportunity to cross examine Gina Conway." (SOHH)
THE REAL QUESTION ABOUT THIS...WAS HE REALLY GUILTY...OR WAS THE SYSTEM DOING ITS JOB...NOTHING AT ALL...
keep it wavy max b! we're rootin for ya!...or at least blackbox is :)

Anyway, even though I am not a big shot...yet, I still keep in contact with the folks because I love their work. Though I am workin on my own projects, I have to give props where they are due, and these guys at ELUSION CLOTHING got that STUFF.
I got an email about a very positive campaign that they have going on called THINK R.I.C.H. and this is the email I received in my inbox:
Hey what's up. We have a big-time campaign going on and we need all of
the help we can get. If you could post this on your blog prior to or
on Friday, May 1st, we'd appreciate it greatly. It's for a good cause.
Here's a little information on the campaign...
THIS IS SERIOUS. AND YOU CAN PLAY A PART. THINK R.I.C.H. IS A CAMPAIGN
STARTING MAY 1, 2009. THE CAMPAIGN IS AIMING TOWARD THE YOUTH IN
AMERICA. EVERYDAY, KIDS ARE KILLED IN THE STREETS. WITH THREATS OF
SPORTS AND MUSIC BEING REMOVED FROM SCHOOLS, WE HAVE TO DO SOMETHING.
ELUSION CLOTHING IS DOING THEIR PART WITH THIS CAMPAIGN. HALF OF THE
PROCEEDS FROM EACH SALE WILL BE DONATED TO YOUTH MENTORING AND AFTER
SCHOOL PROGRAMS IN AMERICA. IF THE AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS CAN IMPROVE,
MAYBE WE CAN KEEP KIDS OFF THE STREETS AND REDUCE CRIME AND VIOLENCE.
I KNOW IT'S A RECESSION. WE ARE NOT TRYING TO BREAK YOUR POCKETS WITH
THIS. THE TEES WILL ONLY BE 15 DOLLARS. THAT CHEAP! AND OVER 20 COLORS
WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR SALE. WOMENS AND CHILDRENS SIZES WILL ALSO BE
MAY 1ST, THE SHIRTS WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE. NEXT WEEK, WE WILL
HAVE PRE-ORDER AVAILABLE. IT'S BETTER TO BE ANNOYED FOR SOMETHING LIKE
THIS THAN A PARTY ON THE WEEKEND. EVERYONE CAN HELP INSTEAD OF ALWAYS
COMPLAINING. NOTHING IS GOING TO CHANGE IF WE DONT DO SOMETHING ABOUT
IT. OUR GOAL IS TO SELL 1 MILLION SHIRTS BY SEPTEMBER 1ST.
PEACE AND LOVE,
As you can see, they are on some positive things, and I feel it is IMPORTANT to SUPPORT not only talented individuals but also B.O.B. (if u don't understand...that's okay *smile*).

One lil homie of mine wants me to help him with his beat skills...might post that up...might not lol...we'll see. Fasho tho.

The reason we re doing this is that, just like other artist or individuals looking for a way to showcase what you can do, you need an Internet footprint...this is crucial, especially these days...low key, when I was talking to beatman, I didn't even want to show people what music program we have as our centerpiece tool, that, being FL Studio (Fruity Loops for you old heads). But he said, "that is exactly why you should put it up", because people get a lot of shit for using FL...basically because they say you cannot produce good sound or its not flexible, or only people who are just amatures, ect ect...and I really don't have time to deal with the bullshit (excuse my Igbo...insider).
But...at the same time...that is not the case...we do play all of our music, and we are VERY proficient...so we are going to showcase this...in excess...and hopefully you can help us spread the word as well. We have had a lot of support from a lot of folks over the years, people putting us on their "top" on myspace like we were affiliate with them (lol...seriously), and it made us really feel good that people respected our potential...4 real.
With that, I am going to drop the first video of "EVERYONE KNOWS US: "THE CORPORATION" where me, blackbox and beatman were kickin it at his crib and we show a minor slap...just to break the ice :)...I am hella excited to see where this goes...
ALSO...I ALL THREE OF US ARE GOING TO BE BLOGGING ON HERE...ON RANDOM OCCASIONS...SO LOOK OUT FOR THAT!!! IT'S GONNA BE QUITE INTERESTING! FASHO FASHO!

I got a call from my patna Mr. Joezy Wellz aka The Talk Of The Town that he is going to lace a track with none other than San Quinn. He's a real big artist up in Northern California, and of course, they are gonna lace it up with one of those special BLACKBOX trizziez (please...please...no applause...its my off day j/k). So if San Quinn is peepin this, bra I appreciate it, and of course, Joezy...u already kno what it is ma dude. Every time I'm in Sac, ma dude and the whole familia treat me like I am a lost relative lol.
What else...man I busted my damn midi keyboard man, I made so many damn tracks on it, but I knew it was only a matter of time. I low key want to make an attempt at fixing it, but I don't know, I might let it go to the keyboard graveyard. I SURE did beat the hell out of it though...but maybe its time for a change.
Oh yea!!! I am putting together footage of me, beatman and docsavage together so you can check us out man doin what we do best! SLAPPIN like a old man with weak kneecaps. Oooowww. Stay tuned for that...I'm sure its gonna suprise ya.

What I do find dissapointing however, is that I never found out anything about the event when it was apparently announced a WHILE ago. I am even looking on the school student union website as I am typing this and there wasn't anything there...that's pretty dissapointing.
One thing I think I should share to the readers about this experience was something one of the gentlemen said, he basically said...take advantage of your situation. Especially for those of you who are like me, and live in California...take advantage of the resources you have. We have many opportunities, as artists, and producers to communicate with more artist than most because most people fly out here frequently to record at our studio's...so make yourself noticable, and you will gain the attention you are looking for...if you don't show up, how are they going to know you are there...
If you do come...please...please...come correct. :)
-BlackBox (hit me on twitter)
Monday, March 23, 2009
The quickest way to put this together is we, Beatman, DocSavage, and Blackbox all met at around the same time (really...beatman and doc sav went to highschool together out in Vallejo (Northern California for you out of touch people), and beatman ran into blackbox, from Southern California, in college...they both go to CSUN (yes...college is a MUST). We decided to come together and after various names, came up with The Corporation...musically talented....business minded....
On here, you will learn more about us, what we do musically, music we produced (artist wise) and maybe we will shoot out some tips on how to fine tune your music (for the aspiring producers) and other stuff. We're gonna freestyle it yadig.
So...in synopsis...we are The Corporation and we have slaps...we're all family...we're cool as beach breeze....and we go quite hard ;D. Holla @ us wheneva its cleva.
