Episode 72 - How To Find A Good Manager | Illmind BLAPCHAT

Music producers need managers. Some don't need them early in their careers when they're first starting out. But eventually, you'll need an extra hand when things get too overwhelming. The real question is: When is it time to find a good manager? Also, where do I find a manager and how do I know if they're good or not? Will a manager help get me major label "placements"? We had an inspiring conversation about all of this. Illmind's friend (who works with Akon) surprised us with a phone call too. Many gems were dropped.

EPISODE 71 - Knowing When To Shoot Your Shot | Illmind BLAPCHAT\

In this episode we speak about a multitude of things - Knowing when to "shoot your shot", taking chances as a music producer, why sliding in the DM's could actually prove to be effective sometimes + we chose 2 fans at random to be our guests on the show. Both are up-coming music producers who listen to our show religiously + actually apply some of the stuff we say in real life, yielding some great results. They also brought empenadas, chocolate covered strawberries for Perfection and amazing gifts. We're so appreciative! This episode was hilariously awesome.

The Zaytoven Interview

Zaytoven is just one hell of a guy. He pioneered what we now call trap music in the mid 2000's along with Gucci Mane, OJ Da Juiceman and all the other Atlanta artists he worked with and has continued to make noise ever since with artists all the way from Usher to Future to Lil Pump. We sat down for an hour long conversation and I had a great time learning about one of the most influential figures behind the boards. Enjoy
