Hustler’s Ambition: Is Loyalty Dead?

0 comments

Business | March 27, 2015

hustlers blog pic

 

I was born  in 1981, my mother had me at 14 years old. We grew up very close, like a brother and sister even though she was a young mother.. She taught me how to hold my head up high, no matter what people threw at you and always fight for what you believe in. She is my hero!

I’ve met people who became my outside family back then it was all about being loyal, treating your people how you would like to be treated??

So my question is what is Loyalty??

My brother asked me to touch on this subject which I told him it would be difficult because everyone’s definition of loyalty is different.

For me, loyalty is some sort of emotion because decisions to be disloyal is triggered by emotions some of the time by greed, envy, hate, jealousy and heartbreak.  Some may display loyalty out of fear, love and respect etc.

So when your dealing with people’s emotions, they could become unpredictable. Loyalty is hard to find in friendships and the unlikely person who ends up being loyal is the person you wouldn’t expect, that person is usually confident and secure within themselves..

The word gets thrown around a lot, do I expect loyalty in BUSINESS???

No, I don’t because its not personal, its business which takes it back to what I said about it being an emotion. In business, everyone wants more and wants to get to the top, so the emotions envy and greed could trigger you to feel you need to survive.

So I never expect LOYALTY in business!!!

See you next Friday :))

Musicalize

 

 

The musicalize crew hooked up us with tickets once again, for one of their most exciting show to date. Located at the famous Koko Theatre in Camden, the queue was endless by 7pm. The place was ram packed The supporting guests including UK talent Rasharn Powell, songstress Tanika and X Factor’s favourite group Rough Copy.

The trio serenaded with rnb hits ‘Same Formula’, ‘Street Love’ and ‘3 words’.

Rough Copy

We were seated in the balcony VIP. It was announced to be sold out on Twitter just before Omarion due on stage. DJ Melody Kane was spinning on the decks and had the crowd swaying. Anticipation was certainly in the air and the crowd seemed to be pleading for Omarion to grace the stage.

Omari

 

He entered the stage with ‘Hello London’  as the growing crowd screamed. One thing we do know is that Omari still has it. For a 30yr old, he looked younger than ever, sporting a red banner and a matching plaid bape shirt. He sang hits included, Entourage, O and most recent ‘Post To Be’.

Corene- Omarion – Entourage

Omarion’s newest hit ‘Post To Be’ featuring Chris Brown and Jhene Aiko. Now, as much as Post To Be has us all jumping up and down, bomping our heads in beat, we can’t forget Omarion’s old hits such as Ice Box, O and this one. Omarion entered the music industry as 1/4 of B2K, the R’n’B boyband. Omarion went on to focus on his solo career in which he produced two major albums, ‘O’ and ’21’. Entourage comes off Omarions ’21’ album which was released in 2006. The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Album charts and sold over 390 000 copies in US since it’s release. Now, for all his fans out there, if you don’t know already, Omarion is in the UK for his headlining show tonight in London’s KOKO. Tickets are still available online so we suggest you cop them right now before they all run out.

The band has had many ups and downs but they have continued to make great music, wowing fans worldwide and are now working on their new album following their Clockwork tour. There is a lot more to come from the boys and we are excited.

 

 

 

Warren – 50 Cent- Hustlers Ambition

Now, if you keep up to date with out blog (which you should!), you will know that last week we posted up a blog post called Hustler’s ambition (check it out straight after reading this!). Now if that title sounded familiar to you, then now you know where your heard it from. This is 50 Cent’s first single from the 2005 the soundtrack to his film ‘Get Rich or Die Tryin’. Sound Familiar? That’s because the rap anthem is built around a soul – influenced production of Frankie Beverly and Maze’s song “I Need You”. The song reached number 65 on the US Billboard Hot 100 making it one of 50 Cent’s most successful songs in the US. 50 Cent (real name Curtis Jackson) caught our attention in 2002 after he was discovered by Eminem and signed to Shady Records, Eminem’s label. With the help of Eminem and Dr Dre, 50 became one of the worlds best selling rappers who rose to create his own rap group G-unit . Since then 50 has become a man of many trades including an entrepreneur investor and actor, however he has still stayed true to music working on this sixth studio album ; Street King Immortal which is due for release this year. We can’t wait! Can you ?

 
Tia – Raheem Bakere ft Tanika – Purple Sky

We love a good love song here at Bassbuds, and when it’s produced by two incredibly talented UK musicians we can’t help but fall in love with the tune itself. Raheem Bakere is an up and coming singer- songwriter from London. After releasing his debut EP ‘AWOL’, Raheem has grown from strength to strength performing for BET International in New York and having just participated in the renowned Acoustic Soul tour around England. This song also feature the incredibly sweet vocals of Tanika, a wonderfully talented songstress from South London. We know there is a lot more to come from these two talented individual and we can’t wait to see what else they both pull out the bag for us this year!

 

We hope you all had a great Mothers Day! For all our Mother we have you experienced the best day of the year!

Hustler’s Ambition: Just Do It!

Meet Clint Ippoma, the co-owner of BassBuds!

Often working behind the scenes or travelling to different countries to closing deals. The entire company ethos echoes his personal drive, determination and values. Hailing from the streets, crossing over to music & film background, Clint has always lived by the saying ‘made something from nothing’ but is now known for his extensive branding and business expertise.

Every Friday, Clint will provide helpful tips and brief pointers on business, sport, branding and everything lifestyle!

JUST DO IT!!!

just-do-it-hed-2013

 

When it comes to business and you have a good idea, create a vision, write your plan and JUST DO IT!! Research is very important when coming up with your ideas so check the market place you would like to enter and see if there is space for you?

Perfectly said as Nike’s slogan, one of the most successful and powerful brands in the world, so why wouldn’t we believe them?? Ask yourself, if you trust the Nike brand and why?

It’s vital that you never allow another persons success or failures determine whether or not your idea will work. As they say ‘one mans gold is another mans silver’ and ‘another mans silver is another mans gold’. Opinion is always good to hear and take on board depending on whether its coming from a worthy source. The decision is ultimately yours.

When setting up a business, budget is important! Remember: Always keep your outgoings lower than your incomings.

Sure, you would like a big office or retail space but truthfully its imperative that you work smart and supply on demand. They do say don’t expect to make profits in your first year, once again that is the matter for each individual, as I saw profits in most of my business ventures I started, but not in all.

Most billionaire companies start with a simple idea in a bedroom with a pen such as; Facebook founder Mark Zukerburg, PDF creator Chris McMeeney and more. They maybe had doubts and maybe even at that time in debt. They too woke up, washed their face, brushed their teeth, saw their reflection in the mirror staring back at them, leaned closer to take a better look and said.. JUST DO IT!!!!

Until next Friday :)

Queens of R’n’B Concert Review

0 comments

BassBuds | March 5, 2015

At Bassbuds we love to keep on top of the latest music and fashion events, so of course when we heard 3 Queen’s of R’n’B were coming to the UK to perform at one amazing show, we had to find out exactly what was going on and make something amazing happen for one of our lovely followers!

We were the official sponsor of The Show Tour so last week we ran a competition giving our followers the chance to win two tickets to The Show R’n’B Superstars to see the R’n’B legends Faith Evans, Teedra Moses and Syleena Johnson perform live at Indigo 02. One of our lucky followers, @Shamalkumal won the competition and had the chance to experience this amazing show. The ladies definitely reminded us why we crown them the Queens of R’n’B, looking as beautiful as ever and sounding as great as ever. The ladies who are all now between the ages of 38- 41 are performing just as well as our favourite charting artists and anyone who was lucky enough to attend the show only came back with the best reviews! Well done Ladies!

Faith Evans

 

Faith Evans has a way of drawing us into her music and why wouldn’t she? Faith is a true storyteller whose life is poured into her music. Faith came to our attention after she caught the eye of Diddy after working alongside Christopher Williams and Al. B Sure as their backing vocalist. She signed to Bad Boy Entertainment in 1994 and released 3 platinum certified studio albums between 1995 and 2001. She is also well known as the widow of the hip hop legend that is The Notorious B.I.G . Many of us have grown up on Faith Evan, she bring us memories of our past summers and is soon to give us some great experiences as she is set to release her new album this year, and after she her epic performance last Saturday, well, lets just say we can’t wait!

 

Syleena Johnson

Syleena has been gracing us with her powerful, soulful voice for a good 15 years! She first entered the music scene after being signed by Jive Records and has worked with legends of the past and present including the wonderful Diana Ross and the innovative Kanye West. Syleena came from a musical background with her father Syl Johnson being a huge influencer. She was nominated for the Billboard Music Video Award for her I Am Your Woman video but more recently was nominated for the MTV Video Music award for All Falls Down, her song with Kanye West. Most recently she has appeared on R’n’B Divas alongside Faith. We loved Syleena’s performance, she’s letting the world know she’s as great as ever and you know what? We completely agree!

Teedra Moses

 

Who doesn’t know this song! Teedra has us breaking into song whenever this tune plays on the radio, bringing back memories of summertime, having fun, feeling the sun on your skin – this is where this song take us and we can’t get enough of it! This being said, Teedra is not only a great singer but is also an incredible songwriter, having credits for our favourite songs including Dip It Low by Christina Milian and Still Hurts by Macy Gray. In 2011 Teedra signed to Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group via Warner Bro Records and was MMG’s first female artist. Last year she released a tune called All I Ever Wanted from her Cognac and Conversation EP which was produced by Rick Ross himself alongside Rapheal Saadiq. She is still performing and she let us all know how great she still is at it on Saturday night,we can’t wait to see her again!

“Fabulous concert. A fun filled night with Faiths belter of a voice, she was by far my favourite of the night but unarguably these three are the Queens of R n B.”

Corene- Skepta- Shutdown

 

So anybody who was watching the Brit Awards last week will have seen a spectacular performance by Kanye West for his new tune ‘All Day’. Now we loved this performance for many reasons, but particularly due to the many great UK artists who added to the energetic performance especially Grime artists such as, Skepta, who Kanye shouted out at the end of the performance. Skepta is deemed as the a King of the Grime scene alongside the likes of Wiley & Dizzee Rascal. Skepta created Boy Better Know with his brother JME. Since then Skepta has grown from strength to strength producing hits such as ‘Bad Boy’ and ‘Rescue me’ which both charted. His latest hit song ‘That’s Not Me’ charted at No.21 in the UK singles chart and won him the Best Video award at the MOBO award last year. Following all his recent epic moves, Skepta released ’Shutdown’ just yesterday which has a cheeky sample of Drake at the beginning of the track (who is a very public supporter of Skepta himself) and it is our favourite for the week!
Benjy – Catfish & The Bottlemen – Cocoon

 

 

Now we all love Benjy’s choice today! Catfish & The Bottlemen are a welsh rock band who are taking their scene by storm! The band made of Van McCann and Benji Blakeway were created in 2010 and through many struggles managed to get signed to Communication Records in 2013 and released their first three singles “Homesick”, “Rango” and “Pacifier” that year. By 2014, the band signed to Island Records and had all tracks premiered through Zane Lowe and were playlisted on Radio 1.The boys also won the BBC Introducing Award at the first BBC Music Awards that year and released their debut album in the UK last September and released it for their US fans in January. In such a short time, their success plays testament to how truly great these boys are! We are so excited to see what they have us their sleeves for us next.

 

Mat – Soulsavers – Death Bells

 

Whilst we have the theme of great British talent running through our Musical Mondays this morning, let me introduce you to Soulsavers who are a British production and remix team composed of Rich Machin and Ian Glover who create downtempo electronica which incorporates influences of rock, gospel, soul, and country music into the mix of things. The duo have released four albums so far and have had their music feature in Grey’s Anatomy. The boys are now working on their new album which is said to be released by the end of this year. We can’t wait to hear more!

 

Warren- Birdman – 100 Million ft Young Jeezy, Rick Ross, Lil Wayne

 

 

This tune allows us to go back to the days when YMCMB were a united collective of brilliant rapping talent. Birdman has previously been nominated for a grammy and has continued his legacy through his work with Lil Wayne who he refers to as his son and of course the like of Nicki Minaj, Drake and Tyga. Birdman originally entered the music scene as one half of the duo Big Tymers who debuted in 1998, the duo ran until 2004 when they disbanded. Following this, Birdman started working on his solo career together with focusing on the most popular collaborations. He has been the centre of a whole lot of controversy at the moment with rumours of our favourite artists wanting to leave Young Money, hopefully everyone smooths out their differences and get back to working together on some good stuff.
Tia – Wale – The Body ft Jeremih

 

Wale has announce that he will be releasing his new album The Album About Nothing will be released on the 31st of this month which we are all too excited about right now! Wale has been known for his conscious lyrics and smooth delivery, as well as his brilliant campaign with Complex Magazine. In 2013 he was nominated for a Grammy Award with ‘Lotus Flower Bomb’ and has continued to go from strength to strength . We have so much to look forward to as Wale will be releasing his latest song “The Matrimony” featuring Usher later tonight so keep your eyes peeled.
