Ok so my artist Rae Rosero performed at this event in Hollywood, as you can see my dude was rocking Crooks n Castles for his performance like he always does. But this time he had on a crooks mitchell and ness jacket, tight ass jacket. Many stars came out to celebrate Apl's Bday. Rae performed his new track "So Sexy" produced by ill mind. This song turned out the crowd. With help from his backup dancers, they put on a great show. But the show did not run as smooth as it should have and I'll leave it that. While I was in VIP I saw Rampage one of my favorite fighters, nobody wanted to mess with him. Oh yeah Vida was also there at the event.

The new simpsons video game is out and 17 Hertz worked on the game with EA. We did some vocals for the hip hop tracks that was in the game. We also got our boy the world famous DJ Goldenchyld onthe game doing some cuts. I would like to thank Bill Rudolph from EA for getting us on the game and all the fokes that came through to do all those vocal parts. So now we can add this to the list of video games we have done. Eargon, Traxxpad, and The Simpsons. Look for us in the credits.

Yo so my morning started with plans only to work from home, when I got a call from DJ Green Lantern (Jay-Z's DJ for the uninformed). He told me to come out cause they had a show at Ruby Skye for some Nokia party. So I go out there they take care of 17 Hertz. After we hook up with Neyo and he's a real down to earth dude, we get with his manger and exchange info, so if anyone wants to work with Neyo give me a call and we can make it happen. Please have your money right before you call me. lol. We also listen to some new DJ Green Lantern Beats and let me tell you there hot. If you need that or for him to host your mixtape contact us. 17 Hertz the studio for the people. Who else is going to go out and get the connect and hand them over to you. What other studio is going to do that for you? Well now that they know that might start biting my styles again, it's nothing new. Oh yeah what was dope was the had a exclusive area downstairs at the ruby skye just for the artist and vip. That's where I got my business done at. Shouts out to Bedrock, Dj Juice, Alex Aquino, and Davey D. The only other people besides my camp that was in there making moves. Oh yeah the picture is not mine, i didn't bring a camera, no groupie shit, all business.
Mr fab came in to do an interview with my fokes over there at MYX. I wasn't able to make it, because I was with DJ Green Lantern getting ready for the Neyo show. But what I heard the interview was good, my dude DJ Romeo was the host. Many of my friends work over there at MYX (a cable show), shouts out to John Santos who called me earlier that day to let me know what was up.

Ok so it's been 2 years since I started 17 Hertz. Everyone knows the story, 3 years I had nothing and now I can't be any happier. The studio I always wanted to build since I was 14 years old, is no longer a dream. Not only is it not a dream, but it helps other get closer to their dreams. In 2 years we worked with
Black Eyed Peas
Chad Hugo (Neptunes)
Devin The Dude
Roscoe Umali and many more.
To be real I would like to thank everyone who help me get to this point and to all the people who wanted to see me fail, I guess you still got to wait a little longer. Don't think I don't remember when you didn't believe in my dream. Oh yeah thank you to all those people who bought me food when the boy was hunger, I'll never forget that, it was only 3 years ago. As long as the boy is doing ok, you guys will never pay for lunch when I'm around. Thank you to all my clients, 17 Hertz was built for you guys. To all the other studios who copied my style, $25 an hour, flossy studio, all that is me. Where did you learn that from huh? We're here to stay, you here today, gone tommorow. Sad. When it all starts to fall down, start to look around, the ones you call your friends won't be anywhere to be found. 17 Hertz only 2 years old and running shit, ask your favorite artist about us. lol

Yo right when my plane touched down from Atlanta I turn on my phone and there's a bunch of text messages saying Devin the Dude is at the studio. Yo I'm a big fan, and he's at my studio working, I couldn't go see him that night but Sam and Jose worked with him and said he was real cool. Yo if you don't know him you might know that song by Dr Dre "Fuck You" Devin sings that part "I just want to Fuck You, no kissing or hugging girl you got a husband who loves you. Don't need you all up in mine." Yo check out his new CD (Waiting to inhale) my favorite song is on it (What a Job) the soundtrack to my job.

Sept 13th, 2007 Atlanta
Now where do I start with this? Ok so I went to the ATL to do a session with Bobby Valentino and to buy tracks from producers. So we get there and the first night I was sick, so no going anywhere for me. I got sick because in the morning I was in the back of a cab in NY going to the airport and this cab driver loves to break hard. If you really know me, I hate sitting in the back of the car when the driver can’t drive. So I got sick. Next day I was in the studio with Bobby V. and hella producers came by to hit me off with tracks. KanyeBeatz, First Born, Fiend, 88 fingers, DJ Green Lantern, L4L, and many others. Well it was time to start the track with Bobby V and let me tell you the boy is a professional. Everything was real good except, the lawyers were fucking around. They were fighting over points and publishing and a bunch of bullshit. So something that should have took an hour took over 8 hrs to resolve. You know why they did that right? To get paid, they get paid by the hour, so when the deal was close to being done, they fuck it all up to extend the time so they can make more dough. Yup I was stressed out the whole time, but we got it done. But while that was going on we sent a intern to go get pizza and it took 3 and half hours to get my food. When he came back everyone was dying of hunger and I gave that intern the business. So just to let you guys know this music business is not for everyone, you got to be tough to be in this business. But when it was all said and done the track with Bobby V came out real good. Now we went from Doppler studios to Dallas Austin’s Studio to meet with the producers. We also meet Chris who is an A&R for Capitol , real nice dude. Then we went to Royal a little Bar in the ATL, and when I went outside when we were leaving, a Ferrari and a Bentley roll up, and it’s Young Jeezy, we exchange info and that concludes my trip to the ATL. Yo they making moves out there, much respect. One more thing my boy Alf from L4L music is doing it in the A, I'm very proud to have motivated friends I can reach out to in the business. Like I've always been saying, "I'm real blessed, kid."

Early in the morning while it was still dark out I had to get to the Oakland airport and head out to the Big Apple. We had to work with Sha Money on this new project I been A&Ring for. So we touch down and I swear this city dosen’t sleep, it’s busy everywhere. It’s been a while since I was out there but nothing’s changed. So we get to Legacy Studios on September 11th (look at the date sept 11th in NY) and hooked up with Sha Money XL and D Prosper. They brought me a bunch of producers to listen to tracks for my new project. Producers, Jake One who has the new single on 50 Cents album “Follow My Lead” ft Robin Thicke, ill Mind, Vitamin D, the Bizness, and many others. Oh yeah Legacy Studios is where Mary J Blige, Alicia Keys, 50 cent, Jay-Z and many more record at in NY. Thanks to all the peeps we were with in NY for showing us love.

Yo before I got there Jay-z came to the Crooks n Castle Booth, yup those boys are doing it big. Also Dennis from Crooks told me they will be opening a store in Beverly Hills around November. That’s Big. I also went to go see my boys from Orisue, check out their new stuff too, it’s hot. That night everyone in the industry went to Jet, and I ran into my old friend A-Trak (Kayne West’s DJ), yeah he rocked it that night. Then came the early morning and back on a plane back to the Bay for me. Party like a rock star? Nawh it was all work for me. lol

yo so right after Dem Hoodstarz video shoot I went to go pick up the Crooks n Castles from the airport. Then we all headed out to Santa Cruz for the RCO grand opening party. We went there and checked out the spot it's real nice. So if your in the area of Santa Cruz stop by there son and get geared up. Yo so on our way to the Bar we got pulled over by 1 time because it was 5 asian dudes in a Jaguar. You know how that goes...then we hit the spot then everyone from that spot walked two blocks up to another bar and got more drunk. Good times. I think BJ and G from crooks had a good time. Yo you don't ever need to trip when your with Dee, "he's got a cannibus card!" lol...But tell me why G set it off in Denny's when he said "Rae Area" everyone started to holla and yell "yeee-yee" in the denny's. That guy is a foe. Everyone thought he said Bay Area. lol. "French Toast Westcoast" was what G was saying when he was drunk and heading to Denny's. Yo I had a good time out there in Santa Cruz, we all met new peeps like the RCO kats and their fokes anytime ya up this way holla at me. I stole these pics from Mega's blog cuz I didn't bring my camera. Sorry Meg.
Yes sir, Dem Hoodstarz had a video shoot this weekend and it was off the chain. Everyone was out there. It was great to see the Bay together like that. So we didn't get to record this song because it was done at various studios. But one part was done at 17 Hertz, it was E-40 verse. Yeah I'm proud we got to be apart of the song. Well I was out there with my camera and took some pics. You all know bout my new hobby right? Click Click. Big ups to Rush Films, and my boy Ratha from Stablish.
