Monday, October 12, 2009
Stylist Brad Jefferson
Here at IA, we want to reach out to all types of talent and your no exception…How you been?
THE DON -I've been so blessed to be a part of this industry, I grind hard everyday to make sure I accomplish the goals at hand, and it shows in the progression of my work. I would like to take a brief moment to thank you for this opportunity.
No Prob at all ...
For those that aren’t familiar with the Don B brand, can you explain your inspiration to want to get involved in Fashion?
THE DON -My inspiration to want to get involved in fashion wasn't just an over night dream. I've been inspired for years, i've always took heed to national trends and local trends as well, but what inspired me the most was the uniqueness and diversity of Houston. I started going out to different events and seeing a lot of outrageous styles and thought to myself how wonderful it was for people not be afraid to step outside the box and show their personality within their wardrobe. I had been doing the same thing myself for years, but now it seemed to be a trend for many people.
How long have you been perfecting your craft?
THE DON -I've been a trendsetter my whole life, but I've been really serious about my work since my early years in high school. In school I use to get comments from my peers like "hey you really can dress" "where did you get that outfit from" "can you tell me what to wear with this shirt or these jeans", I was so excited to help everyone that asked me.
Any notable names that we know of, that you have styled for? If not who would you like to style for?
THE DON -I haven't quite made it too the "big-dogs" yet, but I am starting with alot of local names like underground entertainment and upcoming models. I definately want to do some styling for my generation like Teyana Taylor, Miley Cyrus, The Newboyz, Lil Twist, and so many more. I feel like The independent industry is on the rise and I want to be a part of this new era coming about.
Now from day 1 hiphop and fashion have coexisted can you name some your favorite fashion moments through rap music?
THE DON -When Kanye broke through in 2004 every body favored his music but hated on his style, it was a break through for both industries because it opened alot of minds to see that hip-hop artist don't all have to dress a certain way. Now we have fashion foward hip-hop artist creating their own spreads and coming out with fashion lines.
Favorite brands of clothing? What decade fascinates you the most styling wise?
THE DON-The 70's And The 80's play a huge role in my styles because I use that historical time period and those trends to create new ones for our developing generation today. My clothing brands have a wide range from louis vuitton, gucci, ralph lauren, levi,american apparel, BDG, Jordan, Nike, Supra, and Vintage Thrift, just to name a few.
Whats the biggest difference between fashion and the music industry?
THE DON-The music industry can be very controlling at times and with fashion there are no limits, just expectations. What I mean by that is in fashion you have the opportunity to go above and beyond your work without the approval of anyone, on the other hand an artist has to make sure they are presenting themselves in a manor that will appeal to their audience. I like to take risks with my fashion designs to create a type of trend and not be ordinary.
Can you name future projects that your currently working on?
THE DON-I am in the process of building my portfolio and getting my work out to the public, I'm doing a fall photo shoot in November where I will be working with a Houston based model named Koffee Browne,she will be modeling a few styles that I put together for her. I'm also working on a project with my photographer to offer on site styling during scheduled photo shoots. My manger and I are continuously networking to build my cliental and reputation in Houston.
What is your vision for H-Town fashion scene?
THE DON-My vision for H-Town would be one that first has a unique signature style, and can always be used as a ground force for fashion. I want every style that I create do represent the H, we already have so many talented people in the city, therefor I want to represent and put on for my city while showcasing all the hottest and latest trends.
First off I Want to thank you guys at Internet Approved And Duke for giving me this opportunity to share myself with everyone. I also want to give a big thanks to my manger Ebonie Newsome and the whole TrendsetterPromotionz team you guys keep me busy and I'm loving it. My homie Duece over at Htownclubs.com, yall check him out he keeps you up to date on everything and my photographer Daniel Davis with 7dstudioz.com.

Post Show interview
Hollywood FLOSS talks about House of Dreams and spits a 16 verse
Wednesday, October 7, 2009
The youth just want to be apart of something, while the wise want to chestize to help carry on tradition
Youth might not always want the same tradition and rebel
Wise take offense or feel they went through a hard task, now youth must as well
Youth start their own way of doing it and The wise dont feel that it is good representation of what "its" about
Youth dont suppoprt Wise and Wise dont support youth (Always exceptions)
I find myself a hybrid of both (understanding thw wise sentiments but also a big fan of the youth willing to change and start something new
just my thoughts

Its Hollywood FLOSS post show interview and talking about mixtapes and upcoming projects
House of Dreams coming soon!
Hollywood FLOSS post show interview
Floss: Here at IA, we want to reach out to all types of musical talent and your no exception…How you been?
Rob Jay: I've been blessed and highly favored. I don't have any complaints, and even if I did nobody would want to listen. But overall I'm pretty happy with how everything is going and excited about where I'm headed.
Floss: For those that aren’t familiar with the Rob Jay brand, can you explain your inspiration to want to get involved in music?
Rob Jay: I think for me getting involved in music was just a result of me evolving as an artist and a person. I was always a rapper, but as a kid and young adult I didn't have the courage to step out there and say this is me. I was scarred of stepping into my destiny, so I did things that would keep me close to it, without me actually having to do it. I would manage artist, write poetry, book shows, shoot music videos, work at record pools and music conferences. I didn't have to heart to do it at that point in my life, but I eventually grew stronger and wanted to express myself more and finally I reached a point where I didn't care what anyone had to say, if people thought I was wack, nothing mattered anymore because I was going to go crazy if I didn't follow my calling, literally. So I took a leap on faith and started recording and God took care of the rest..That's basically how I got involved.
Floss: How long have you been perfecting your craft?
Rob Jay: I started rapping in 6th grade. I lived on the Southwest Side of Houston but I went to a magnet school, Lanier, that was downtown. So I had to catch the bus at like 6:30 in the morning. I don't know why but somebody asked me to rap one day and from that point on I was always rapping on the bus. I spent years freestyling before I ever wrote anything down so that helped me think at a much faster speed. Another thing that developed my craft was my love for reading. When I was young my father would make me read lots of books, before I could go outside and play I had to read and write book reports. And not kid books either, real stuff ,Naim Akbar, and this is like at age 11. My mom she used to always buy books on things I was interested in. So she helped me fall in love with reading because she made it fun. Anyway, over time the books, combined with the freestyling and the traveling that I did just gave me so much subject matter and I developed a strong command of the English language. But to answer your question I've been honing my skills for about 14 years.
Floss: Now you've stated that you started off making/ directing videos why the switch to music?
Rob Jay: Self expression, that's the biggest thing that made me switch. I thought doing videos would allow me to express myself as an artist, which it did but in a very limited way. The biggest misconception about music videos is that it's just an artistic vision of a director etc. Music videos can be artistic, but the director's job isn't to show how good he can direct, it's to promote that song and that artist. I couldn't deal with that any longer.
Floss: Whats the biggest difference between the two?
Rob Jay: I express myself through words with music, with music videos it's more colors and visuals. So if I'm hurt, I can just say on a song I'm hurt, either through a metaphor or direct statement. With a video I'd have to use dark hues and stuff like that. Also everything is faster. i can make a song today, I can make a mixtape next week. But with videos everything takes extensive planning.
Floss: Most rappers live at the studio, is that the same mind frame you have?
Rob Jay: I'd like to but unfortanely my work schedule and managing all of the other aspects of career kind of keeps me from living in the studio. I like to go occasionally but just knock out alot of work while I'm there,
Floss: How long does it take you to write an acceptable 16?
Rob Jay: Usually around 25 minutes
Floss: Do you help the producer come up with the picture your trying to paint, or do you just listen to the track that is provided for you?
Rob Jay: When I was working with Smitty and Ryan Marrone out in L.A. we had that relationship where I could just have an idea, no lyrics and they come back with something. Sometimes I'd tell one of them a story and they come back with a track for that. But the producers I've been working with lately, Jonh Dew and Maestro, are more the type that provide beats they make stuff that they feel like I'd be good on but it's different from when I was working on my last two ep's.
Floss: Can you name future projects that your currently working on?
Rob Jay: Video Rob Is Dead- which will be my first ever mix-tape. and The Art Life EP Vol.2 which will be the third ep of the Art Life Trilogy. Both of those will be out this year. After that I'll be putting out The Art Life Catalog which is going to be every single original song that I've recording since beginning the Art Life Movement.
Floss: What is your vision for H-Town hiphop scene?
Rob Jay: I want to see more support from the city. We don't support each other enough, then when people get the first bit off attention from someone outside of Houston the whole city wants to hop on the bandwagon. I would like to see more leaders on the hip hop scene, and I think we have to raise the bar as far as skill. If your gonna be out here make sure you can spit, because you can't just be out here taking up space. I want to see new artists that represent different sides of the city. It's more to Houston than, Codiene, 84's, candy paint and slabs
1.Favorite up and coming MC - I really don't have one, but I like B.O.B.
2.Oilers or Texans - Texans
3.Street Fighter 2 or Mortal Kombat - Street Fighter (Ryu)
4.Artist you would love to work with? Janelle Monae, Lupe Fiasco
5.Hidden Talent - Culinary Arts, I'm nice in the Kitchen
And of course i couldn't leave you without a quick sampler, Rob Jay's music

IA: Here at IA, we want to reach out to all types of musical talent and your no exception…How you been?
HOLLYWOOD FLOSS: I can't complain my music seems to be getting a little more coverage these days and i feel that in the next 8 to 10 months i will be able to do music full time (God willing)
IA: WHat music is having an influence on you as of late?
HW FLOSS: ...Man everything! ... Kid Cudi mixtape, T.H.E.M mixtape, Rob Jay, Dom Kennedy and I def. rock with the BEP " I Got A Feeling" track is dope
IA: What is the next project or move your considering?
HW FLOSS: Next up is a Mixer with The Tipping Point Shoe Store Sponsoring and My new Mixtape and Album coming soon! Album is gonna be called "House of Dreams" and mixtape is untitled... Oh and also an EP with a certain blog, but thats uder wraps...SHHHHH! gotta keep the suspense lol
IA: Most rappers live at the studio, is that the same mind frame you have?
HW FLOSS: Unfortunately my job wont let me, but i'm wishing to have that opportunity very very soon... I mean i love the environment and just creating music is fun!
IA: How long does it take you to write an acceptable 16?
HW FLOSS: Acceptable is a funny word because Beauty is in the eye of the beholder... I've written verses and thought it was great, but then people were naaa you can do better, and vice versa where i felt it wasnt that good, but others loved it...So i'll just say 30 minutes to an hour and i will have an acceptable 16... but i'm always redoing and editing myself as time allows
IA: What is your vision for H-Town hiphop scene?
HW FLOSS: Support and Coexist thats its...Shout out to my manager TONE MAVIS

It def. took me further than what i would've imagined and its a proud moment in my life.
The thing i enjoy most is that the feedback is so different, there isnt one clear cut choice for favorite album cut, its all over the place with fans favorite choices
It ranges from She A DIme to Please Dont Judge to Cougars to Better Times
and thats exactly what i intended when i dropped the LP, show diversity and hit different markets
Thanks to all who copped it and jammed it, It means alot -- HOUSE of DREAMs on the way stay tuned!!!

Keeping it Real, i might scrap my upcoming album, i'm feeling the songs individually but not as a whole, and when i look back at the time and effort i spent i'm deeply hurt, but I know its for the best
So why do I say i had a great, weekend when that took place...well because I came to that realization before I got deeper into the album, and was at the point of no return phase lol
check out myspace.com/hwflossss

Words spoken so true, from abstract himself
man i saw the MTB4 trailer and i thought of that line...
Even though Puff kicked out and dismantled Danity Kane, it looks as if he's gonna keep them under contract
meaning even if they do continue success with another label, he will make money off the artist
Makes you think before signing to a label and not want to get screwed!!!
To all the artist dont be in a rush to sign your life away
Wednesday, January 28, 2009
anyways i give the movie a B-/C+
I know its a movie and hard to summarize, but i felt a lot of the parts were rushed, but i guess thats how they wanted it, as BIG's real life was rushed and ended early...
I would have liked to see more insight to how he created his songs, more back story on the pac beef as well
Whoever played Faith was dead on, and the 3lw girl was a good fit for kim
i recommend it, but it isnt a must see
Tuesday, January 27, 2009
anyway, be aware that when you get in this game (music game) not alot of people are sincere...
There are a lot of snakes in the game and a lot of people who have misconceptions of grass of greener, so they want what you have
so just a tip, be careful who you trust in music and know there's a 95% chance that an agenda will be behind someone playing nice to you...
Monday, January 26, 2009
1. Feb. 2 - Deans Credit Clothing
2. Feb. 21 - The Cellar Bar
please visit my myspace myspace.com/hwflossss for further details, and please support me as an artist

Shout out to Gumo for hooking me up with a sick bassline ! - dude had skills 4real
I have at least 3 album projects going on, so hopefully the fans will like at least one!
New Year, New Mindframe
Letting go of 40% of old rituals and things i did in the past - includes negative people, thoughts and things, to help a more positive outlook for 2009
(Mos Def).. trying to play me for the herb (Mos Def)
Well not this year,
1. if you want something, you have to go get it - firm believer
2. make sure it's an even exchange, quit short changing people
3. Think Positive
4. Get rid of the people who bring you down, use you, etc - erase them out your phone book
I aint one to preach, just want everybody to have a better 2009 and be on the look out for HOLLYWWOD FLOSS MUSIC

Picked up some samples to chop - funny thing is, i been trying to get more original tracks created without samples but i always come back to samples... Sooner or later i will get a good number on both so there's a balance...Afterall i do like party/fun songs just as much as a Blackstar song - I just think the radio needs a better balance
To people who get all emo, when someone mentions a party song, lighten up - i mean summertime by will smith is a great fun song, so is cant touch this LOL!!!
I never understood, why people got mad with one hit numbers, They help you remember some great moments in your life... i can list at least 10 cheesy songs, that help me go back to great memories in my mind from
"I wish i was taller" to Marcy's Playground "Sex N Candy"
oh well, just bored, i will put up song 1 of 182 in a couple of days - rough version
until then peace

Please keep in touch with me and if you want to know about any updates on shows and new tracks, just hit me up
The new album is shaping up nicely, i really dont have a concept yet, just loose recordings and loose ideas
so once i get a solid 4 tracks to build upon, i'll form the base of the album...dont get me wrong the records i have now are nice, but i dont know if they're cohesive with each other, so i am gonna keep recording until its a guarantee
Its no big deal right now anyways as i still want to promote "art or fiscal intelligence" and my ep "ari gold tendencies"
but expect the album to be done by april or may
thats all for now, stay in touch
