The Struggling Artist: Pimpn Music

Waa Gwan, Fans, Friends, & Supporters. My team is excited to share another drop with you. I wanna start by saying a lot of people don't understand the hard work that goes into producing an artist. From the underground to the majors everything is a numbers game and hustle grind. Whether an artist gets paid or not it is always work. The musician has become like a modern day Pimp to his/her music. I write, mix, master. record, design the album etc. and everything else I don't do like, marketing for example I pay a professional to do. So what am I saying? I am saying "keep in mind the next time you see a artist ask you to listen to there music, remember they are in the same struggle as you if not worse so give that person a chance and, if they are good don't be afraid to do what it takes to become a fan and show support. I would like to dedicate this song "Pimpn Music" to the struggling artist who is going thru some of the things I been thru. This is also dedicated to your struggle as just a Pimp/Worker/Hustler in life. What ever you do to bring money home is yo #PimpFlow. You can find the song on www.reverbnation.com/antoniojay or www.toniojackmusic.com and download it to listen to where you and share with your friends on and offline. Pimpn Music video will be coming soon to #Youtube. You can find out more on this and view samples of the video when you follow me on #Instagram and #Vine @Toniojackmusic. There you can see the amazing sketch effect used to create the video and other interesting videos and pics I may post. The video was filmed in my neighborhood home of #Omaha, NE. I filmed it all in one shot with my #iPhone so the turn out maybe pretty surprising some of you. "Pimpn Music" will becoming to an app store near you. Stay tuned for more blog news on yours truly.

Antonio Jackson Emailed By Afrika Bambaataa

Hard work pays off! Yesterday was the beginning of a new level in my journey. I normally don't check my emails because I assume their is nothing really that important in there for me to check it everyday. Right? Since I was on myspace with 7,000 followers in 2006 I have been getting some offers here and there. Some were legit and landed me shows and opportunities. Others for what ever reason just didn't fall thru. Not to mention the many manipulators and exploiters out here who can't really do anything for me but offer me a spot on there mixtape or, a local show where they will make money off me and other artist presence. I tend to over look these things in my email sometimes. I have learned I should check my email more often because, not only did I miss some important emails I had an email sent to me by the Godfather of Hip Hop himself.... Afrika Bambaataa. If you listen to Hip Hop and don't know who he is you should do some research. This is one of the biggest legends in the game. Here is a copy and past of the actual email. (As I am waiting for my page to load I see there is another response email form Godfather Bam waiting to be opened) Afrika Bambaataa Jun 15 to me "Brother Antonio Jackson I had the honor of reviewing your material on your website as well as other links in respect to your music! Long story short reach out to this Brother (Medina) and ask him to give you a quote on five markets in radio. I assure you of this matter once you are reaching the masses on radio the rest as they say is history. If he needs to verify just tell him to call me. Peace.Love.Unity. That brother info as follow

Godfather Bam..." Now of course I had to remove all their contact info but, I was amazed and at the same time puzzled. Could this be the real Afrika Bambaataa...The "Planet Rock" Bambaataa? I had alotta of mixed emotions at this time. I decided to call Quest Fax about his offer and come back to this because I had no question about who Quest Fax is. He schooled me on somethings in the game and how local artist need to stop thinking local. We talked about an hour about registrations with ascap (who I am apart of) and the importance of being prepared in the industry. It is more grime then we think and he was telling me how to look out for snakes. I get back to Afrika Bambaataas email and decide to call Medina who Bam referred me to. I asked Sam and Jiynx what they thought and if they can help me do some research on them before I call. Sam said "Could Medina be Beaney Medina? Hmmm. I finally call and get know answer. "Damn" I thought..."Here we go again." I emailed Afrika Bambaataa about this and he emails back an apology with the updated number saying "Keep me up dated brother." I call and get no answer. I decided to send a text and low and behold I got the first response."Who gave you my number and who are you?" Now if you know a lil about industry "cats" you should know that they do not like to be contacted unexpectedly so you better have a damn good reason to have there number other wise you are just wasting there's and your time. I told him "Afrika Bambaataa hit me up in a email awhile back. Told me I should call u for the quote. My name is Antonio. Medina's Reply " Ok call me so I can hear what's the deal!" We talked for almost an 2 hours. He schooled me way more then Quest Fax on the industry ties and what to expect. How to present yourself in the industry to Record labels. By the end of the conversation my mind is so blown I don't even know what to think of Hip Hop anymore. I was to send him the email that Godfather Bam sent me for verification that I was sent by Bam and some tracks so he could here them. I now have another reply that I must go read. I will keep you updated on this matter and others as we always try to.Until next time always believe in your dreams. We are doing big things and will continue to do so. Thanx to all the supporters fans, fam, and real friends for the support. AntonioJay
