@THEREALSWIZZZ – Pistol On My Side (P.O.M.S) featuring Lil Wayne

Like in life and the new video by Swizz Beatz, the producer and DeeJay, added some major heat to the lyrics of Lil Wayne aka Mr. Carter while the talented but possessed-looking Alicia Keys adds some strong melody via her instrument of choice. The intro is a posed and double-cupped Lil Wayne in his indoor skate park and then pops in the elegant and honest Swizz who recently was quoted by USA TODAY, “You only have so much time – once it’s gone you don’t get it back. Don’t focus on money, focus on building something greater than yourself. “If you’re not making history, you’re wasting your time on Earth,” Dean said.”

This is said to be only the 1st project of a 4 part series to be release by Mr. Dean who recently graduated from Harvard University Business School’s Owner/President’s program, a prestigious three-year graduate program that had previously denied him acceptance not once, but three times! What a powerful role model and example. I am excited to see just WHAT else he has in store. Take your time King – we are ready when you are!

What is Indie 500?

What an amazing set of triplets! We are all growing up and we all need a little help from our friends. 9th Wonder, Talib Kweli and Pharoahe Monch have come together to create a company called Indie 500 (which I think is NEEDED in today’s industry state). These gentlemen have combined their companies in a collective manner to form an independent company that assists distribution for Hip-Hop artists.  “We looked at each other and we were like, we should do business together and music together. Not just on the rap side, but on the touring side, the business side and sharing of information,” stated Monch. “It’s empowering, it’s beautiful, and it’s important for that to be known. To inspire younger generations to not only rap, but to start companies and corporations.” according to AllHiphop. Stack or Starve was down at A3C Hiphop Festival in Atlanta along with these fellas and was witness to a dope interview with 9th Wonder via the COMBAT JACK SHOW. Definitely something to listen to along with the most recent music from Pharoahe Monch PTSD & Talib’s P.O.C. LIVE.  For the latest from OKAYPLAYER CLICK LINK
