Dru: Speaks About His Solo Career

When I was a young, hungry writer just starting out, I prayed for any opportunity to show the world my writing skills. I wrote to thousands of magazine editors practically begging them to take me on as a writer. In a last ditch attempt to get published, I contacted an editor of a magazine that…

The Double Life Of Alize

One night, about a month ago, I was gettin’ my social media hustle on, when I received a tweet from @thisisAlizeS – a.k.a Yung Superman. He asked if I was interested in interviewing a web series producer who also happens to be a rap artist.   I’m always down for making a new connection, but…

Jonathan Shaw Talks Radio, DJing And Being a Mentor

It’s slightly surreal meeting someone in person when you’ve only heard them on radio.

Not…

Ta$ti Dosh: From College To The Stage
