The other night as I sat in the bed with my wife and watched the press conference, conducted by Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch, I had a feeling that when ole boy finished I would have the pissed off face. As Mr. McCulloch began his soliloquy I could tell that all he was doing was trying to […]

I got the distinct pleasure of meeting Jason Derulo a few years before he blew up.  I was in L.A. shooting for another artist, Pryzlezz, who featured Jason on one of his tracks and video.  Even though he was super skinny-quiet dude you could feel the talent oozing out of him.  I called it a […]

Last week I did a post on the greatest runs of classic albums. In this feature Classic Album Series, I will take a look at each of those albums in depth. Sharing my thoughts on why I feel each album is a classic. First up this week is Marvin Gaye – I Want You. Black […]

Saturday night while I chilled at an art show at Alpha Bang, the r&b community was up in arms at the debacle of a movie presented by Lifetime. The movie as I am sure you know is the biopic on Aaliyah. I knew the movie was coming out but I didn’t care to see the […]

See I come from a different era. I don’t want anyone to be able to say they seen my wife naked not while she is my wife. Sounds reasonable don’t it? Does Kanye West have the same train of thought? I don’t think so. A few days ago a picture from the magazine Paper dropped […]

A classic album is a term that is thrown around way too much these days. To some people out there a classic album is one that includes the “hot” song of the day and a few other commercialized jams. With so much garbage being released it is hard not to call a “good” album classic, […]

And just like that Moguls the Holiday season is here. Time to be festive and jolly. And with all of the jolliness going around some of you may want to hit up a party or two that you’ve been invited to. But hold up! Before you get out there and make a complete fool out […]

I’m not a rapper so how can I possibly discuss anything about the rap world you ask? Here’s how.  I’ve been involved in every facet of this rap shit for the last 20 years.  I’ve produced, I’ve written, I’ve been an A&R, I’ve deejayed, I’ve promoted, I’ve marketed and blah, blah, blah.  Everything I’ve done […]

The Mogul Life is not about the Jay-Z’s, Oprah’s, or Diddy’s. It is not about expensive yachts, private jets, or personal islands. It is not about owning record labels, head phones, or clothing lines. That is not what Mogul Life is about. It is however about, living your life by your own set of rules. […]

The scene was thick… nothing but ladies, beer, bbq, music, smokes, and Iceberg punch. We decided to throw this party at the crib as usual, but this time we wanted it to be bigger than ever before. We wanted to leave our stamp on Grambling State University. IceBerg wasn’t as big as your regular fraternity, […]

This past week Mrs. Ocean and I took our talents down to Mexico for a delayed honeymoon. I finally put my passport to use and got myself a stamp out of the trip. So I was happy about those moves, however while on the trip I learned a few things that the travel agent didn’t […]

    I’m not an emotional type of dude. I think I have a developed a handle on separating my feelings from my emotions. Master Yoda would be proud. If I had to pin point when I decided to keep my emotions in check it had to be sometimes after the funeral of my Grandmother. […]

9/11 will forever be marked as the day that the Twin Towers fell in what was the worst attack on American soil since Pearl Harbor. So with all respect let’s have a moment of silence……… ………. ……… Ok. However on this day Jay-Z dropped what could arguably be his greatest album, The Blueprint. Many hip […]

That came out wrong.  I mean rappers I’ve photographed.  I’ve had the distinct pleasure of photographing some of my favorite performers/rappers over the past few years.  Since no one really cares but me, I thought I’d use the site as a way to force-feed it into your eyeballs.  I’m not the best photographer but I […]

Over the weekend me and the wife checked out Get On Up at the theatres. With all of the spotty press it was getting I wasn’t expecting much. And although at times the movie seemed a little too after-school specialish it served it’s purpose to me, and that purpose being to (re)introduce James Brown to […]

All conscientious Moguls have wrestled with this dilemma before; when do you pull out your phone to text message someone? Some of us may have those jealous significant others who may cut their eyes at you if they catch you pulling out the phone while with them, we have all been there. After the jump […]

So, we can finally put this story to rest….Your Old Droog is a white dude from Brooklyn, like he said from the beginning, and Nas apparently has nothing to do with him.  He used the ominous gossip contrived by the media to push his career ahead a few steps; and rightfully so.  While Droog obviously digs […]

Damnit there is a God!!!! Yep and every year around this time He/She smiles upon us common folks in the United States and blesses us with FOOTBALL!!!! Damn it feels good. It reminds me of playing football in the streets with my friends during those cool fall days after school. When we would play from […]
