For real Traxx. I feel you. Its who you know. Mphaze really didn’t say anything we all dont know. If I had a chance to do what I can then it would make a difference. Sending to record labels I think its a waste of time. They won’t listen because evrybody knows somebody and they get the hook ups first. I think its about luck. Just being at the right place at the right time.

Every since the internet boom with youtube it seems hard right now. You gotta find a way into the game that not everyone ealse is doing.I spend alot of time thinking about this. (With no caps).I dont really want to do a youtube video because I dont wanna be on tv or whatever u call it.Too many women might leave thier husbands.I would do some crazy shit like make a beat on the mpc live in a strip club with naked women dancing to my music on the pole while im dressed like a pimp.Thats a good way to get 2 million hits though.lol

^^Yeah, nobody has ever done a music video involving strip clubs, that’s a pretty ground-breaking angle. Stick with that.
