Life of Artist Manager: Rae Sremmurd Interview Before The Fame


(2/25/14) - On this day, I went to a radio station in Atlanta with Mike Will Made It (http://instagram.com/mikewillmadeit) and Rae Sremmurd (http://raesremmurd.com). Mike Will was doing a promo for his "Ransom" album and Rae Sremmurd had also just released their single "Throw Some Mo" (https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/sremmlife/id948398152) song before Nicki Minaj hopped on it. This was Swae Lee (https://www.instagram.com/swaele) and Slim Jimmy's (https://www.instagram.com/jxmmis) first time being interviewed on radio and I was lucky to be there to capture it on my iPhone. Here's J-Nicks (https://www.instagram.com/durttyboyz) interviewing Rae Sremmurd, before they were famous, on Hot 107.9.

How To Make A Song & Music Video In One Night [Life of Artist Manager]

On this day, Jonny Bravo, iLoveMakonnen and I were in Lilburn, GA at a townhouse that I rented for a couple months. This was a rare moment because I managed to have two artists that I worked with, in the same house. I started working on the Jonny Bravo & Swag Jesus project, the same month I started working on the iLoveMakonnen project. We were all from different cities, but we managed to link up and get great work done. We recorded songs, made new beats and shot various impromptu music videos this week. We had a very productive week. In this clip, we were working on a song called “Elegant”. Right after we recorded the song, we shot the music video in the garage. The finished video turned out really well. Check out the finished music video for iLoveMakonnen & Jonny Bravo “ELEGANT”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q7DsLb4bmtA

Life of Artist Manager: Fired From The Team


(2/6/14) - I rented a house in Lilburn and set up a studio for us to work. Makonnen flew in a singer from California that he wanted to sign to the label we were building, but things didn't work out for her. Here's the candid footage of their final confrontation.

Life of Artist Manager: Lilburn Townhouse Studio


(2/6/14) - I rented a townhouse in Lilburn, GA and set up a studio there. We needed to be closer to the North Side of Atlanta because that's where most of our work was taking place at the time. This was right after the panic attack footage when Makonnen spazzed out and kicked out his Cali friends who he flew to Atlanta to come work with us. My guy Jonny Bravo was in Atlanta with us around this time.
