The details as to why I was offline weren’t important.
There is still certainly a lot of work I need to do on this site to bring it back up to its previous 100% capacity.
And there will be a LOT of announcements in the coming days as to my projects, collaborations, clients, writings, and more.
But all you need to know is this:
I’m better than ever.
And I’m never going anywhere ever again.

Going the Neon Museum Boneyard Way?
The Las Vegas Strip has inspired so many music artists to write songs about the lifestyles, the establishments, the glitz, the glam, and all the other what-ifs, whatnots, and whatevers associated with the Entertainment Capital of the World. From Frank Sinatra to Elvis Presley, AC/DC to Sheryl Crow, Katy Perry to Faith Hill, Barry Manilow to Snoop Dogg, the B-52s to Eminem – the list is extensive, and it still keeps growing. Of course, as the list grows, so do the music videos that get produced for the artists who naturally choose to use “The Strip” as the main backdrop for their creations.
Aside from featuring life in Las Vegas, quite a number of these music videos have scenes shot inside prominent casinos, treating viewers to that uniquely familiar barrage of light, sound, and spectacle that only Las Vegas can provide. Needless to say, viewing these videos in succession can provide even those who haven’t even heard of Las Vegas vicarious experiences like no other.
But if there’s no reason to expect a drought on songs about the city and its environs, there is, however, a growing concern in the future of certain establishments – casinos, mainly — that operate within the area. The reason for the concern: The ever-growing popularity of online gambling, especially among the newer players coming from younger generations.
Ironically, a number of live gambling venues from poker rooms to bingo halls have either started to downsize operations or closed shop altogether due to dwindling attendance stats, and one of the chief culprits being eyed is the surge of online offerings of these very same games. The interface, the gaming mechanics, and the addition of social networking features are obviously intended to attract newer generations of players who grew up on gaming technologies that have very similar features. Even pop culture music icons like Ghost Rider and other Marvel characters are the selling point of Cryptologic’s slot games on casino.betfair.com’s multiplatform gaming.
For the moment, casinos are still going strong, poker rooms are still around, roulette wheels are still spinning, and blackjack tables are still dealing. As far as looking to Las Vegas as a muse to inspire more music and video masterpieces, all current and upcoming R&B, Rock, Pop, and Hip-Hop artists worldwide can still look forward to many more years of collaborating with Las Vegas as there’s no real danger of its casinos turning into Hollywood “ghost town” stage sets. Not yet, anyway.
But as technology keeps on improving and keeps on providing faster, more efficient, and more visually-stimulating interactive environments to substitute for physical environments, who knows? There might even come a time when instead of having a traditional casino floor for a Las Vegas music video, artists of the future might instead be doing videos similar to Big Casino – the music video released by Jimmy Eat World from a few years back. You know, the one that featured the band playing in front of old billboards and historical casino neon signs at the Las Vegas Neon Museum Boneyard?

During his recent radio tour, rising Queens rapper Yung Fliiboy took an opportunity to freestyle to Notorious BIG’s “Hypnotize” beat. Freestyling to such a legendary beat is a big risk for a rapper…but Fliiboy pulled it off without a hitch! As you can see from the video, Fliiboy did the freestyle “off the dome” (without cheat sheets or notes) and flowed nicely!
In addition to the freestyle — which premiered exclusively on Da Matrix Studios’ “Booths & Rooftops” — Fliiboy spoke to DJ HD of SUNY Old Westbury’s OWWR Radio on “The Cool Kids Show,” where he described what sets him apart from his contemporaries.

Quirky pop-R&B diva Mal V. Moo knows how to mix the best of hip-hop, rock, alternative, and pop into her music, and she’s dropping her debut album, The Makings of a Monster, to showcase her skills. Appropriately, too, the album will be dropping on Halloween…but in the meantime, she’s all-too-happy to tease’n’please with this latest poolside photoshoot (by Will Pounder), which is a sweet way to say goodbye to summer.

For press inquiries, please contact:
Executive producer Dwayne “DL” Clark has announced today that the King of Paper Chasin’ sequel, King of Paper Chasin’ 2: Certified, has announced the addition of Tahiry Jose of VH1’s hit TV show, “Love and Hip-Hop: New York” to its cast. Ms. Jose will be playing the lead role of Kim, the epitome of the “ride or die” female that is a perfect compliment to Clark’s lead protagonist, Carter Blanche.
“I am beyond grateful for this amazing opportunity to enter into the world of acting by joining the cast of King Of Paper Chasin’ 2: Certified,” said Ms. Jose. “Ever since I was young girl, it has always been my dream to be on the big screen, so when I was asked to be a part of this movie, I jumped at the chance! I see so much of myself in the role of Kim — a loyal, strong, and honest woman that most men say they want, but are oftentimes intimidated by. I am planning on bringing my A-game to this project! I’m looking forward to joining my castmates and getting to work. The first film did extremely well, and it was all done independently! To hit Showtime, Netflix, and The Movie Channel is a big deal. Joining a franchise that already has a fan base is awesome, and to say that I am excited is understatement!”
King of Paper Chasin’ 2 picks up where the original film left off: the story of Carter Blanche is told through the first-person perspective, where sex, greed, and deception are all central pitfalls as he chases his dream of rising to the top in the gritty city. However, every choice he makes can — and will — cost lives.
The original King of Paper Chasin’ is currently enjoying licensing deals with Netflix and Showtime Networks, and Legend Group Studios in Santa Monica, CA and has optioned the rights to adapt King Of Paper Chasin’ into a weekly one hour drama TV series. The Kickstarter program includes rewards such as advanced screening invitations in various cities, pictures with the cast & crew, on-set tours, and DVD copies of the film.
