Life of Artist Manager: Roget Romain & Kameechi Arrive In Los Angeles

In this episode, my long time mentor and business partner Roget Romain arrived in Los Angeles with his new artist Kameechi. Roget started managing me when I was doing my "FDTV" comedy series, back in 2005. Roget has always been a big help in my career, and I've never made any major moves without running it by him. This week, we plan on shooting some new content for Kameechi and working on Roget's new media company, Black Count. Roget just bought a new Sony A7 S, so we were eager to work with the new camera. The Sony Alpha 7S camera uses mirrorless technology and the visuals turned out amazing. Kameechi and JPrice have also been working on some new music and all the songs I heard sound like fire! Watch what happens next.

Life of Artist Manager: Producer Gets KICKED OUT The Studio!!!

Working with this new producer that reached out to me on Facebook. Met him at a coffee shop in Beverly Hills and heard a few of his beats. His beats had potential and he told me that he already had a few placements. He told me he was interested in me managing him and that he was interested in me being his agent, to shop his productions. I had to leave the meeting, but I invited him to my studio downtown Los Angeles, to work on some new music. After working with him for two days and noticing how defensive he became, while I gave direction and advice, I realized we wouldn't be able to work together. I wanted to finish the song that we had already created, sign off on it, and then part ways, but this is what ended up happening. Wish this guy the best.

He told me that he was working on his project and had a video coming soon. After watching the “Baller Blockin” Music Video (, I realized that he was a great artist and immediately wanted to have another meeting with him to discuss if we could work on a project. When I got back to Los Angeles, I gave Strike a call and we ended up meeting in front of the Nice Kicks store downtown. I chatted with him for a bit and he discusses some of his plans for 2018.
