datwon @myfabolouslife was cool back then and even cooler now. I remember him being more poised than normal for a new artist. The scene in Mr. Chow's was heavy too. #BKallDay Two #BrevoortBoys #Niiice #TBT

My 1st Magazine Feature... I remember doin this interview in Mr. Chow's in NYC & being questioned if I thought I would be around long because I sounded similar to Mase...And here we are 13 yrs later. That's why they call me #YoungOG"

datwon Reading the credits on Chris Brown's new album X. Wish more digital releases had the full credit info with them. That's how I learned so much about the music biz in my early days. Artists and Labels figure it out!
Gonna check Breezy's album, sounding good so far. So many new name producers are on it. #ChrisBrown #X

  •   jgotty @datwon credits don't even exist in this day and age, which does a disservice to all of the people involved in making a project come to life. 3d
  •   skyzoothewriter We gotta link bro. Back from Europe now @datwon 3d
  •   datwon @jgotty So true. I usually have to hunt around the Internet just to fact check a producer or extra writer name for popular songs that should have that info attached to the digital release. Crazy... 3d

  •   homegurlheather I landed my first internship by reading the credits in j.coles album. My dream was to work on his project, so I started googling the people he thanked and finding twitter handles. I reached out via twitter, and got a internship at Columbia! gotta finesse your hustle 3d

datwon 20 years of Ready To Die....BIG set it off for my hood. I know he touched the world but before that, I saw him and JR. MAFIA give hope to my area in Brooklyn. I went to high school with various members of JM. Saw them go from ashy to classy first hand. Before we even graduated.

Get those two shirts from @invisiblebully_ & @sugsway to rep the King.

Nothing beats the night in '95 at the Country Club when BIG lead a conga line filled with Bad Boy artists and JM with maaad top dog rappers watching. BIG didn't even care! He proceeded to lead the pack with, Cease and them joining along to their own hits! It was Bad Boy hour! Crazy funny!
I couldn't believe he would do that in front of Old Dirty & Wu, Naughty by Nature and the rest. Puff was being thrown in the air and mad money was falling out his pockets (I can't front, I reached...but gave the paper and his beeper back haha!). So much more to that scene, check it in the doc I did with D - Roc called Rap Phenomenon. It's on Youtube.

But BIG still cracks me up. I find new lines on Ready To Die that make me laugh out loud. Love to the illest to ever do it. Put the borough and his crew on his back and showed us how to rep BK right. Gonna drink some Henny tonight and listen to the album like me and @lamar145 used to back on the block. #RIPBiggie #MafiaDons @iamdiddy @lilcease #BKallDay #BadBoy #BigPoppa #ReadyToDie20

datwon Special cover for me. It was the first time I saw my name in a printed magazine. Ever. I didn't even write anything in it...Just my name included in the Intern section was enough for me to know I belonged in this industry. My homie @greggbishop made sure that this time (after months of exclusion) I would be added.
For this issue to be the turning point of hip-hop coverage is an understatement. The ones before it buzzed about what ended up being what we all dreaded, the death of a soon to be icon.

I remember saying in a group Cypher on my block after Pac supposedly wilded out at The Source awards (which wasn't his fault with the Tribe situation) "he gonna end up getting killed the way he's acting." After I said it, I immediately wanted to take the words back. I felt the sting of them. Then when he did die, I was feeling horrible for putting such negativity in the air.

I tried to make up for it by playing his music nonstop, but on the low cus I was still in pro - Biggie mode. We can't deny the talent, heart and black pride Tupac showered the world with. He's the standard for that, which no one will reach again.
