Just Blaze At Baseline Studios

LTD Presents Conversations: Just Blaze (Episode #1, Part 2) "We REALLY made an impact with this place..." from LTD Magazine on Vimeo.

If you don't know by now, I grew up a huge Jay-Z fan. With the exception of Kanye West, Just Blaze was quite possibly my favorite producer growing up. I listen to a lot of Jay but sometimes I just listen to the countless instrumentals Just has made for Mr. Carter. Anyways, in this video he talks about Baseline Studios and branching into other areas of business (besides music) as his success as a producer continued to grow. It's introspective and inspiring as always. A must watch for anyone hoping to get into the entertainment industry as a long term career.

Props to @CallMeKwabs and Fresh87 for the video

Be Thankful

Back for my second post in two days, I'm extra focused on being consistent while my workload isn't that bad. Anyways, just wanted to emphasize being positive and thankful for what you have. Sometimes I feel we allow the most minute things to upset us and steal our joy. The old saying is true: it could always be worse and while you may not be where you want to right now you have the power to change that with your mindset, thoughts, and actions. So today, instead of thinking of what you don't have be grateful for what you do have. Focus on the positive and minimize the negative; you'll be surprised how much differently you feel throughout the day. Until next time, peace, love, and keep winning.
