Being a DJ and trying to put a weekly mix tape out of good music that your kids can listen to is becoming increasingly painful. I usually can start the mix off with one or two good new songs then I have to reach back into the old school crate if I want to mix... Read more »
Arsenio is back! Judging by the Nielsen ratings he is back for good. Sure the first episode had some uncomfortable moments but for the most part, “Stella got her groove back”. Next weeks shows will be HOT FIRE! Don’t believe me just watch! Arsenio is in a great position. His first show, twenty-years ago, was... Read more »
DJ FINK has TURNED UP his top Male/Female rappers list of all times. Ok I used the term, “Turned Up” because I had to sound like I was as hip as the B.E.T awards show and the current rappers of the day. I don’t even know what “Turned Up” is! That being said, I wanted... Read more »

I am 43 years old now and I have adjusted the type of events that I attend because I have children. I don’t want to be that guy who is in the club when someone steps on the wrong persons shoes and I get punched in the face, slapped, spit on or worse shot. There... Read more »
Many moons ago I decided that I wanted to take the road less traveled and provide an outlet for unsigned and forgotten artists. I created ClubbinTV and spent every dollar I had, borrowed dollars from family and friends, sought out investors, won over sponsors and launched the managed bar, live performance engagement marketing events geared...

I see that every magazine, television music program, and Hip-Hop aficionado around this time comes out with the best 10 rappers of all time. There are the usual suspects in the top 5 but there are also people who have no business being on that list. I am no genius. I have never ghost written.... Read more »
