While i was in college i played football, joined a fraternity (Delta Kappa Sigma), and was a dj at 107.3 WATC. I went to school for wireless communications but didnt understand what the teacher was talking about. Ohms law Watts law, who cares! Imade the decision that i was in college i was going to learn something. I focused all of my time on digital audio and my fraternity. I started making the intro to my shows from various samoles using wave lab. I played everything from hip hop to classic rock.
After failing out of S.U.N.Y Canton when i went back home to brooklyn and started buying software for music production. I started with Voyetra Hip Hop Ejay. It was a sample tank where i learned how to mix drums, melody and bass. After using all of the samples in the program i decided to step it up and buy cakewalk. I used general MIDI and a couple of single one hit drum samples to create tracks. I also used cakewalk to record vocals.
At that time i was working for UPS at night and i had the day free. I did a one year internship at Brownstone Recording Studio in Bed-Stuy. It was ther i learned cubase and the scorpion 32 track mixing board. Within three months of the internship i had my own room im the Old Papa Wu studio in Brooklyns Restoration plaza. I was working with more artists than ever but I was only recording Freestyles to mainstream artists beats. It was good practice for engineering but like my mentor Nuchay Alexander says "im a producer first and an engineer second."
While at ups a supervisor named Reuben "Sin" Townsley had talked to me about getting a record label started. The ball got rolling when Sins's brother Salih "Smooth" Townsley came home from "up north." The two brothers then gave me a MPC 2000xl, a roland tr 707 groove station, and a mackie 16 track mixer. That was the beginning of GTM "Get That Money" records.
GTM record had two djs, dj 911 (b4 the towers fell)
and dj Supa D. GTM records taught me more of the promotional and buissness side of the industry. We threw parties every week for six months straight and sold mix cd's. The street hustle is great it only takes 30 cents to make a cd with a cover. I learned that 100 cds is a $100. I had no problems selling the mixtapes but i wasnt selling my beats yet.
