2017 Coast 2 Coast Music Convention

The 2017 Coast 2 Coast Music Convention was a success. After winning 3rd place in Los Angeles back in March, my journey continued in Miami. I met so many awesome people who are well connected in the industry. I had a chance to attend some panel discussions which featured the director of A&R at Atlantic Records, legendary producer Rockwilder, and well known and respected PD Jill Strada from 99 Jamz in Miami. I am looking forward to following up and building with the connections made.  Motivated Elevation Music and Publishing here we come!! Shout out to all the other DC artists that represented the District well.

In February 2009 R&B singer Chris Brown was arrested for brutally assaulting his then girlfriend, pop star Rihanna.

Now, for the first time, Chris admits Rihanna was also abusive throughout their relationship. In a clip from ‘Chris Brown: Welcome to My Life’ Chris explains,

“This is the first time I get to say anything, and I still love Rihanna but I’m just going to be honest. We would fight each other. She would hit me. I would hit her. It never was ok…Like, I don’t like you slapping me…If I go on stage and I got a scratch on my face and I got to explain it like, “Oh I fell.”

Chris also explains in graphic detail what happened that night inside the car,

“With a closed fist, like I punched her, and it busted her lip, and when I saw it I was in shock, I was ‘f***, why did I hit her like that’?

“So from there she’s… spitting blood in my face, it raised me even more. It’s a real fight in the car, and we driving in the street.”

“I’m like ‘yo, we tripping, what the f***, what are we doing?’ She tried to grab for my phone, and I’m not giving her my phone, to throw it out the window.”
