Vet Perspective: T.I., Iggy Azalea, Azealia Banks and The Industry Machine

ig

After working in the for 29 years (20 0f which have been owning my own business rffocusorg.wpengine.com) there are a few things I have learned, MOST the hard way.  First I have learned that when it comes to business, you can never take it personal, next I have learned that those who come to the table with leverage, leave the table satisfied and full. Finally I have learned the art of “Strategy” to pick battles because even though you may have the best intentions and you even might be right, you can still end up looking like the bad guy.



To that end, it is greatly disappointing to me that many young black people in the industry don’t have mentors. The generational gap between new people and has been around since I started in the industry and there are very few chances to marry the two. Older industry people are failing the up-and-coming and in the end that’s going to affect our place in the industry, as a matter of fact, it already is. I myself never had a mentor.
