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
