jdobypr's insight:

Florida Best Selling Author and critical care Registered Nurse Willie L. Stewart has stepped outside the box releasing his new blockbuster novel taRNished with a far sighted and original promotional strategy.

It’s not too often that an incredibly talented novelist is also blessed with modern media savvy.  Stewart brings this to the table with the promotion and marketing surrounding his recently released first novel taRNished.  Not only is long time Registered Nurse Stewart writing about an area he has immense personal knowledge of, the healthcare system, in an exciting, disturbing and compelling way, but he may have completely changed the game of novel promotion and marketing for good.

And while the competition has a lot of people heated, many hip-hop heads just want any win for the genre.
jdobypr's insight:

It was hard to believe that hip-hop hadn't had an album of the year win since the late 1990's...I'm not sure the current winner was the best representation of the genre for that particular award however, I'm happy that it was a hip-hop win and that the genre is expanding.  I don't believe hip-hop should be exclusive but rather inclusive.

jdobypr's curator insight, May 23, 1:40 AM

The Hype Magazine | 

It all started when / 

My band, The Bogmen were on tour in support of our debut album on Arista Records.  Our single, "Suddenly" was in heavy rotation across the country and as well as regular plays on MTV's, "Alternative Nation".  Things were cookin'!  We got the call that the song was going to be featured in a big scene in The Farrelly Brothers new film, "Kingpin".  Everything was looking up. A couple weeks further into the tour, we found out the song was no longer in "Kingpin" and at the same time, MTV picked another artist for the addition to the "Buzz Bin".   It hurt.  We still had momentum but that film placement was going to be a huge deal for many reasons and the timing was critical.  But it went away.

jdobypr's insight:

Examiner.com | Trust is a concept that is significant in all aspects of most people’s lives. From time to time we may find that in the music industry, more notably, in the hip-hop community, trust becomes a foreign language. Then there are times when a lack of trust becomes sad and down right criminal.
