Last night was epic! I can’t even explain the feeling of seeing everyone singing and dancing to the whole EP. God is amazing. Forever thankful
Many thanks again to @officialdilemma,@beanofrench, @iamanniemiller, and@jessi_j25 for dropping by my first section of #HipHopandBlackCulture at@templeuniv this past Thursday. Dilemma discussed his decade-plus career in music, his creative process, some of the artists with whom he has worked (@blackthought, @meekmill,@jsullivanmusic, @migos, @bizzle, et al), how he defines success, and he premiered new music. Beano and Annie discussed their process in creating Beano’s beloved new ep #JustBeano. Beano also gave away two tickets to his sold out show (which I heard was one to remember).
"Don’t allow social media, outside noise, and even those close to you to define your success. Define your own success and what that looks like for you! Don’t be afraid to be flexible with the path and process. The “perfect situation” never looks perfect at 1st."
If you don’t like it, change it, if you don’t know how, YouTube it and figure it out, if it’s not on YouTube, kill your ego, humble yourself and ask ($$) someone who does it better to teach you, then shut up, take notes, listen, apply it, get better at it, then flip it and make it your own" #helloworld

I’ve always admired the relationship between the artist and the producer. JayZ & NoID, Common & Ye’, Dmx & Swizz, Justin & Tim, Snoop & Pharrell, Michael & Quincy. It’s something special and can take years to develop. The level of trust, honesty, commitment, loyalty, patience, and focus is unexplainable. @beanofrench I appreciate you and thank you for trusting in me and allowing me, to be me! The project is HERE and it sounds amazing! Thank you to the writers, musicians, engineers,... everyone!” #helloworld#justbeano
Darius Coleman "SunDown" produced by DILEMMA
I would say Swizz & Kanye are my biggest influencers on how I create music and overall think about art! When I got the call to do this Ye' Tribute I was hype, honored and beyond thankful.
Check it out on the JammerApp

The listener has full control of how the song is played, so have fun with it! And let me know what what you think about the song!
Last week Ebro premiered Beano French "Darling Baby" on Beats1 Radio, the 1st single off of Beano's debut EP "Just Beano" (coming in September). This morning Beano releases "Monday Morning" (prod. by me). Enjoy and stay tuned in for more.
I was introduced to Bizzle's music in 2010. I was riding around with my homie who was playing one of his mixtapes. I heard this one punchline about God saying you can reset your life like a nintendo wifi set and I was like "ayo?! who is that!?!" lol. 7 years later, I've been blessed and forever grateful to have worked on almost every single one of his album since then. With so many good records to choose from, I had to pick my top 3 songs I've produced for Bizzle.
Honorable Mention: Bizzle "God Over Money"
#3 Bizzle Feat. No Malice
#2 Bizzle Feat. Jonathan McReynolds
Knock Off Love
#1 Bizzle - ft. Lavoisier & Datin
Love We Share
When creating no idea is a bad one, just be patient which yourself, believe in that idea and bring it to life the best way you know how. Sometimes you might have to come back to the idea years later when you're a lil more developed & apply whatever new tricks you've learned. #DarlingBaby was one of those ideas I had to come back to and I'm so thankful I didn't give up on it when Joe & I started it. God really showed off on this one. The way he put all this together, everyone at the right place at the right time, with the right mindset. No matter where you live, what you don't have, who you don't know, he can make a way- feeling highly flavored.
