The NETWORK for The Core DJ Syndicated Radio Show
Let me be the first to say, I. Don't get to say this often or send these kind of messages like I used to BUT let me say this today on 12/12/12 .. I'm impressed with T.I. demeanor about his career in music
We did an event to launch the NEW Core division of adult entertainment DJ's at Erotic City Gentlemen's Club in Detroit last night & it turned into something monumental.
First, we all went to T.I.'s listening session .. it was PLENTY DJ's from Detroit, Toledo, St. Louis, & other surrounding areas, great event but what happened AFTER ...
T.I. we all know (Grammy nominated, award winning artist, actor, reality star, movies, clothing line, ect) is a HUGE celebrity, these type of artists "RARELY" come back to the hood unless its a charity or some "give back" event but T.I. not only came SMACK in the middle of the Eastside of Detroit with the NEW Core fam ... he did a mini SHOW & wrecked it!
T.I. turned the club OUT, no one expected that!
Maaaan, that had to be one of the BEST looks for a artist of his caliber that I've seen in a long, long time!
When you promote a release, WHY go to the SAME places (LIV, KOD, Mansion, DOA, Beamers, ect, ect) to promote. Its cool but that's very repetitive & expected. Artists of T.I.'s caliber don't that anymore, they don't go & touch the hood like that ... the REAL hood (but they still rap & glorify the hood shit though .. Ok).
ARTISTS ... Do the unexpected.
For EVERY popular spot, its a HOOD spot that started the record first .. For every popular spot in a city poppin, there's a HOOD spot poppin also.
I don't know what came over TIP last night but, he TURNED UP in Erotic City ... keep it up, you impressed the HOOD last night & artists of his CALIBER, take notes ..
Never get OUT OF REACH. He took it back to Serious/URBAN LEGEND T.I. this go-round.
I will be one of the FIRST to PURCHASE "Trouble Man" MYSELF next week ...
Thank You T.I., Thank You Atlantic Record, Thank You Sam Crespo & Damon Gales .. I see you are still working, hope it spreads to some of these "other" reps in the industry.
BIG LOOK: hoods talk for years, groupies talk for a week.
