TRACY MILLS E2W INTERVIEWS SMILEY “CONGLOMERATE MANAGEMENT”

CONGLOMERATE MANAGEMENT SMILEY TRACY MILLS

Q. Who are you and what company do you represent?
A. I am called Smile, aka Smiley and I represent “Conglomerate Management.”

Q. When did you fall in love with hip-hop?
A. I Loved Hip Hop Since day one. From the church to booth. I went from rapper to producer. I have produced for The L.O.X., Black Fame of Ruff Ryders, Amil and many more.

Q. It seems like you evolved 360*. So, what fueled the move into management?
A. The economy. I was working in the hospital; I had given up producing. When the economy went bad, a lot of jobs started laying off people. My advantage was that I kept my ear to the streets. I was never out of the Industry loop. My partner, Big Man and I started Conglomerate Management in 2005. When I lost my job in 2011, I was able to devote my energy full throttle to the company and my artists.

Q. From the late 90’s to current, the industry has changed so much. Where do you see your company fitting in with this ‘new’ industry?
A. Our goal is to become as large as Violator Management, R.I.P. to Chris Lighty. He was great, and one of the best that ever did it. We have a team in place, to help us reach that goal. Antwan Walker is also apart of the Management team. Then we have Big Man, who was an assistant A&R at Universal Records, Uptown, and Warner Brothers Records.
We are focused on our artist as long as the artists have drive. The attention we give to artists is reflective of how it was done back in the days. Many management companies want artists to come to them groomed, ready to pitch to the labels. We offer the Motown experience. Grooming, attention to detail and motivation.

Q. What artist are you currently working with?
A. Our first signed artist is Kadeem Scott aka “Deemo.” He is a solo artist who has a charm for hip-hop and R&B. Then we have “Newport Stress” which is our first, hip-hop/pop duo representing Dobbs Ferry, New York. Newport Stress includes “Mann D” and “Joey Christ” We have Twinn Poe, who is out of Mt Vernon New York. Our team of producers: Ash Loughlin out of the UK. Crystal Performance, Kha a.k.a. Khalid Brown, Genius Boy, Tunes, Mel-O-Dee from “Mel-O-Dee Production”, and Big D.J. Ock. We are Currently building our artists and fan base.

TRACEY-I thank you Smiley for your time and we look forward to hearing from Conglomerate. Is there anything you would like to add?
SMILEY-That’s it for now, but stay tuned folks! And you are welcome Trae

ARTICLE-AN EXPRESSION ON VETERANS DAY-A GOLD STAR MOTHER SPEAKS

GOLD STAR MOTHERS HOP HOLLINGSWORTH

A Gold Star Mother is an unwanted title. It is a group; none of us have ever wanted to belong to. But we are here, amid one another. We support one another, as we are fully aware of the daily effort it takes to exist after the loss of our child to war.

AN EXPRESSION ON VETERANS DAY-A GOLD STAR MOTHER SPEAKS

HOPE HOLLINGSWORTH GOLD STAR MOTHERS

Many have often inquired about the meaning of a Gold Star Mother, at one time or another I was even congratulated on being one. However naive the comment or questions are presented, it is the constant reminder that my son as well as many others has sacrificed their lives for the freedom we often take for granted.
A Gold Star Mother is an unwanted title. It is a group; none of us have ever wanted to belong to. But we are here, amid one another. We support one another, as we are fully aware of the daily effort it takes to exist after the loss of our child to war. To get by, we find ways of coping, one of which is becoming actively involved in our military, publicly but non-politically.
GSM’s has a resilient connection to service members. An association in which can never be broken or disassembled. We are dedicated to the commemoration of Military observances, such as the day referred to as Veterans Day, Sunday, November 11th.
Veterans Day was an act amended in June making the 11th day of November reserved as a legal holiday devoted to our Heroes, men and women who came before us protecting and defending our country, like my son and countless others ready, willing and able to preserve this great nation. A Veteran is a title to be proud of. It speaks to the heroism of many men and women who chose military life. Men and women who have courageously joined based on the understanding of wanting to make a difference or quite simply, “Be the Difference.”
This day, November 11th Veterans Day should be viewed and remembered as a day of gratitude, not just a day off from work, because by all means it is by far more than that. So, I ask that you take a moment and pledge your unending thankfulness to our past, present, and future Veterans.
Gold Star Mother signing out . . . Hooah!

OBAMA! NOW WHAT

THE ADVOCATE BLACK FEMALE COLUMNIST E2W MAGAZINE

Barack is STILL President, Now What?
By Lekia K. Hill “The Advocate”

Goooooo BO! Barack Hussein Obama does it again!!! President Obama. Wow. Can you say YES-WE-CAN AND WE-DID, Again! I am hyped for the up and coming four years of this presidency. Really, Who wouldn’t be for that matter? But as an advocate, I am also a realist and the real issues are going to take more than another four years and a black President to fix them. Its going to take us as a people in whatever community we live in to continue to stay engaged and involved in the process of holding our elected officials accountable. That means on the levels of City and State. Yes, President Obama is our President, the HMIC but that is of the UNITED States of America. Who is in charge of where you live? Do you know their names? Your Mayor, City Council members, Assemblyman/woman, hell do you even know your Governor? They are the ones who can handle your real life social issues where you live. They are the ones you can see and touch up close and personal. As I introduce myself, I want to make it clear. I am “The Advocate”, I fight for what I believe in and for social and economical change, I can’t fight alone people. We have to keep this “Moving Forward” momentum going. The Obama Campaign has started something that is by far finished and believe me there are many so called leaders counting on us to forget it. Why, because we always do. You know we do. We get all excited and have each others’ back in a headline tragedy or victory but soon as the headlines stop so do we. Well let us show them they got another thing coming. The panther in me would love to call it the “Black Attack” but that would actually have the GOP man shaking in his skin. So lets just roll with “We’re All in This Together” ya dig. And since Obama had majority of the Hispanic and Black vote, two nationalities they’ve plotted against one another for Centuries, I’d like to invite the GOP lovers to join in and cross over to the winning team. Now, by far am I a radical racist and certainly you all know we all have a bit of racism inside of us, I mean its impossible not to with being categorized as black, white and yellow on every governmental documentation and or forms you press ink to in this country. I just want us as a people and that is the 99% to support each other.
I’d like to close the corner with this; We all have opinions and would like to believe we live in a democracy but a true democracy at the end of the day has yet to exist. If it were not for Activist who advocated for the freedom and free will we do have, it would be much worse. We must continue to fight and support each other and exercise our rights to have our voices heard every chance we get. Speaking up should be a priority for you and not just settling or living in a fantasy chasing a T.V Dream. Perception is reality folks but those who govern your reality create your perception. Remember that. There are campaigns going on all over this country for social and economic change. Next time you want to Google something Google how do I get involved in….
Its all about the #3Es EmPOWER EnCOURAGE EmBRACE
