B.O.B dropped his video for his track "Cold Bwoy" from his WATER mixtape directed by PhillyFlyBoy this week. B.O.B is a very conscious artist that is aware of what's really going on behind the scenes in the world. I don't understand how people slept on his mixtape (seriously though). The topics he speaks on are attention grabbing, deep, and valid. We all know that B.O.B makes two types of move music B.O.B can make a blazing turn up track but his music also elicits you move in your mind and actions. He makes you think and wonder more about the numerous topics that people are uncomfortable about researching or speaking on . He's definitely sending powerful (need to be heard) message in his music and he's been doing it for years.

THE MOGUL MINUTE: 5 REASONS WHY CHRIS BROWN'S " BLOW IT IN THE WIND" SHOULD BE YOUR FAVORITE SONG (THE MOGUL GIRL)
Before the party we were celebrating the release of Chris Brown's seventh album "ROYALTY" and after the party we are still celebrating. As of 2 days ago "ROYALTY" is the #1 Hip/Hop/R&B album on Billboard for the 3rd consecutive week. We should just keep this brilliant album at #1. Don't you agree Team Breezy? So Chris released a standard and a deluxe version of his album. The deluxe featured four more exclusive tracks from Breezy. The album as you can tell from (here) that I absolutely adore it and I haven't stopped playing it ( I brought the album four times lol) I wake up like "I swear I got no filter" (lol) . One of the songs on the deluxe version is entitled "Blow It In The Wind". I am addicted to this song. I crave this song. It's just so enlivened and meaningful. You know that moment when a song just gives off that "This is just what you need" vibe.Yeah that's it. "Blow It In The Wind" is written by Chris Brown, Bryan Nelson , Aron Lamont, LeShawn S.Rogers, Shaell Woodgett, Natalie Sims, Keith Thomas, and Mark Pitts and produced by Bryan "Composer" Nelson for Composer Productions Inc. The song is astronomical. If you haven't listened to this song you need to . I so hope we get a video with Riveting Entertainment for this one. So here's 5 reasons why this song should definitely be added to your favorites.
1.) REMINDS YOU DON'T LET PEOPLE KILL YOUR VIBE
In life we face so many ups and downs and sometimes we let it weigh us down. We have to remember that if we just get through the nonsense there's always better on the other side . At times we have to put all the drama aside and just remember to be happy and enjoy the good times . Remember to not let other people's feelings kill our vibe.Also remember to turn haters into believers. People will doubt your dreams and gifts and sometimes you just have to smile and know that they'll see all your thoughts and dreams come to life one day.
2.) REMINDS YOU TO NOT LET WHAT PEOPLE SAY GET TO YOU
For sure people are going to talk about you whether good or bad, somebody somewhere is talking about you. We just have to accept it. People are going to run their mouths whether they are saying it to you or behind your back . We just can't spend our time focusing on the negative things people say because there's to many other positive things that we should be focusing on.
3.) FORGET THE BULL**IT
Yes there's so much bull crap we all deal with . Yet we have to still live it up and celebrate the good things . Yes we have to have fun. Sometimes you just have to put a pause on worrying about your problems and just remember the old good times and remember to actually have new ones. Don't forget to take a break sometimes and just laugh, dance, kick it with your friends, family, travel, do something you once loved to do, or pick up a new hobby. Don't lose yourself in the middle of your problems. That's how you lose and the goal is to win.
4.) STUNTING IS OKAY
Its true some people don't want to see you happy. They will hate on you because you are being rewarded. Don't let their hate destroy you or make you regret your blessings. If you worked hard and you are happy..BE HAPPY , LET IT SHOW ! Why should you have to hide the good things that are happening just because other people are hating on you or jealous? That's not the way it works. It's okay to stunt, smile, and enjoy your life and all of the goodness it brings. As Chris said "Me and my N*ggas we young black and rich".
5.)THE STRONG DON'T QUIT
In other words let it go. All the negativity, drama, BS, let it ride.and BLOW IT IN THE WIND! As Chris said "Raise your middle fingers to your problems". Sometimes you have to just let all the unwanted drama go. If it's not in your best interest at heart let it go because it's only going to end up hurting you and that's not a good thing.Strong people don't give up or quit. Yes there are issue but you get through it and you keep living and shining through it all. You handle your situations, you handle your problems without letting them take over your life and you continue to grow and succeed. BLOW IT IN THE WIND!
As you can see this song has so many layers and you can just connect to the messages on this track. So remember next time you feel super stressed about your problems "Blow It In The Wind" you'll be okay !! This track should definitely be one of your favorite songs. Although this whole album should be one of your favorites anyway.

A Benjamin Franklin once said "Energy and persistence conquer all things". It's very rare that you come across someone whose energy is so magnetizing and sharp. Kev Young of Southbridge,Ma is very confident, committed, excited, spirited, and vibrant. After watching HIS "All Night" video , purchasing the single, and of course featuring him on The Mogul Minute I had to interview him. His voice and image is charming, dominant, and refreshing. His vibe is just so elevating , pure, and genuine. I'm so happy that he is the first "The Mogul Minute" interview of 2016. Oh yes this is how you kick off 5 years of The Mogul Minute the right way. So let's get into this interview with the spectacular Kev Young right now.
1.) The Mogul Girl : What's your favorite food ?
Kev Young : My favorite food would have to be pasta. Pasta is definitely my favorite but not just any kind. Chicken Parm and stuff like that but if the sauce isn't right it isn't happening. The sauce has to be A1. The sauce is everything!
2.) The Mogul Girl : So what does music mean to you?
Kev Young : Music to me is ......and I don't want to sound cliche but music to me is life. Music to me is a way to express myself and I''m not trying to put a downfall on my career but let's just say I wasn't going to make it , I would still make music. Music is something I personally use to release certain emotions....every emotion to be honest. Happiness, sadness, being mad, anything. Music to me is a way to keep me sane I guess. Yeah, it's going to stick with me. I catch myself singing without even trying to.When I'm cleaning my room or just doing simple things. It's just literally something that's instilled in my life. Its just going to be there forever.
2.)The Mogul : Now your single "All Night" is super sexy and the video is too? What was it like recording the song and shooting the video?
Kev Young : I definitely love the song. It was dope recording it and putting it together. I was already excited for it once everything was done. Now the video (Ahhh man) it was fun . If I could put it into any words it would have to be fun.
3.)The Mogul Girl : So tell me about your upcoming project?
Kev Young : I'm still debating on what I'm putting together. I've been putting out singles with my team and they're doing well. I'm debating on what I'm going to do either an EP or an album. I might just keep dropping singles but for my upcoming projects I have a few features , a few shows, and new videos .You know, basically just networking and promoting and trying to build a name for myself. So when the labels do come my portfolio will be situated . So my upcoming projects are basically just adding new songs, videos, and features. Not to many features because I'm trying to focus on myself but the ones I will have will be prime to my upcoming success. I just have to keep the faith. I'm not cocky but I'm confident. I believe in myself we're doing for each other we have a very solid foundation and 'm just trying to get there. A lot of people don't understand you can't do this by yourself. You need a team no matter what. Every person is just as important as the artist. I feel like a lot of people forget that.Everything is important when it comes to the team. Everyone is important when it comes to yourself.
4.) The Mogul Girl : Now what are some of your favorite things to do when you are not recording?
Kev Young : I play a lot of sports. I know I might seem skinny as hell but I eat a lot. So I'm always eating . Now that it's winter time I'm into snowboarding I'm an active person . I'm into snowboarding heavy. I like going to the mountains. I'm into basketball. If I'm not in the studio I'm either writing or listening to beats or doing something to keep me entertained but yeah I'm def into food. I don't know where it all goes but I love eating.
5.)The Mogul Girl : I'm from Philly and I saw that one of your inspirations are Boyz II Men. If you could've been on any Boyz II Men song which would it be and why?
Kev Young :Wow! That's a good question. Damn there's so many songs from them that I would love to be apart of . That's a hard one. If I could be apart of any song I think it would've been "Song For Mama" of "Water Runs Dry" .
"Song For Mama" because I'm a mama's boy to the max. I grew up with just my mom. That's my world. My heart. That's the first person that's going to benefit from this whole thing if it goes well. She gave me life. "Water Runs Dry" because that's just a dope song. It's emotional. That song is levels . It touches so many levels of emotions. I'm probably going to end up listening to another Boyz II Men song like damn I should've said that one.
6.)The Mogul Girl : What are some of the things that you value in life?
Kev Young : The first thing I would say is definitely my daughter. I value her so much she taught me so much just the whole way she came about. Everything about her has been a lesson to my life, I just love her so much. I value my music. Music is very important to me. I value morals. Just having good morals.I learned in life you can't be cool with everybody. That doesn't mean you have to be a jerk for a lack of better words. I value respect a lot. You have to give respect to earn respect. I just value every little thing that I have earned or gotten to this day. I value this interview. I'm just an appreciative person. I know that things don't come easy and things don't have to happen . Nobody told you to hit me up so the fact that this interview is happening .Just everything in general I appreciate it. I value God.God has a big role in my life.I grew up in a religious scene. Even though I make secular music to be technical I still value my relationship with God. That's something I'll forever keep close to my heart. I grew up in a religious home. My mother is still very religious. She goes to prisons to preach and she's constantly praying for me. she's up everyday at 5 AM because she has a dream that I would get stabbed when I was 17 . She wakes up at 5 A.M still until this day tomorrow she's going to be up praying for me.I love that woman she's a soldier. I feel like a lot of my blessings are because of her prayers. A lot of things have been avoided. I've been in bad places and literally leave the place 5-10 minutes later and something crazy would happen. A brawl, somebody shot,something crazy , and I literally just left and its happened a handful of times . So its like I feel I got something protecting me. So it definitely has to be the prayers of my mom.
7.) The Mogul Girl : Now the ladies are going to love you, your music, and image. What do you love about the ladies?
Kev Young : I'm hoping . I'm not a bad guy. I love women's honesty. I feel women are a lot like children they ain't going to tell you they like something just to tell you they like it. They're straight up. They'll say "It was cool, it was alright". I just like that women are honest. I feel that a women would be quicker to tell me "Kev that was alright you can go harder then a guy would". They're upfront. They know what they want and they know how to get it.
8.) The Mogul Girl : Now if you could be any animal for the day. Which would you be and why?
Kev Young : Ohhhhl! That's a good question. There's so many . I would want to be a lion off rip just because that's the king of the jungle. That's the man el captain. My favorite animal always been a tiger. See you got me thinking crazy like animal planet. I like eagles as well. They're high in the sky, flying over everything, and they have 20/20 vision they're not missing a thing. If I had to choose one it would be definitely be a lion just to to be the real king of the jungle out here.Lions are just so dominant. When you see them, they just demand your respect.
9.)The Mogul Girl : I love all types of movies. What's your favorite movie
Kev Young : I have a lot but it would have to be "All About The Benjamins". I have a lot but yeah that's my all time favorite. I could watch it 20 times and still laugh just as hard.
10.) The Mogul Girl : What's your favorite line?
Kev Young : Oh my god! There's so many. You know when he's like "You know what? I'm a start goin' D'Wights 'cause you don't laugh at my jokes or nothin' . D'Wight who? D'Wight around yo lip. You know that other line when he's like "You'll never find,blum, blum, blu , blum a hairline like mine". ( Laughing )
11.) The Mogul Girl : So what do you want The Mogul Minute and the world to know about Kev Young?
Kev Young : That I'm coming with fire music, but I'm coming humble. I'm not coming in this game trying to be better than anyone else cause that's not what I make music for. I'm very humble and I just want to make a name for myself. I will make a name for myself. So to everyone my name is Kevin Gonzalez "Kev Young" I'm a singer from Southbridge,Ma and I'm coming. You will hear my music and you will see me on BET one day very soon. Just know that I appreciate the love I get and I appreciate my team.My team consist of 3 0r 4 people. Shoutout to my Agresivo Records team . I do want to mention them. Shoutout to my boy Cam Yadier . I started with Cam when I started doing Spanish music . I do have to pay some respects to my boy Cam because they played a huge role in everything. They're still playing a huge role in everything that I do as well. Cam is a very good producer. He's always in Boston but he's from where I'm from.Also shoutout to "Sure Fire Music" that got me sounding amazing. These are my people. Teamwork makes the dream work. I'm in the studio right now but I cut the session just to do the interview. It's just flattering even to have an article written up on me . This is all cool and happening so fast and I appreciate you too. Thank you
I appreciate Kev Young for being such an awesome interview and just being an amazing artist. As I said before his energy is just magnetizing and you can just gravitate to his passion, humor, just his pure love for life and for what he does. I'm so looking forward to more incredible music and videos to come from Kev Young.

Yo Yo Ya Yo welcome to Atlanta where them players play and we ride on dem things like everyday . On the second episode of "The Rap Game" from executive producers Jermaine Dupri and Queen Latifah, Jermaine Dupri took his five young stars for a ride through Atlanta. He had them meet at the Greenbriar Mall to inform them of their next challenge. He informed them that he was taking them for a ride through Atlanta and that they had to write a rap about what they saw, and then rap about it tomorrow in booth. So, Jermaine Dupri showed them Cameron Rd where Kriss Kross and Outkast are from, the famous Cascade Skating Ring, Old National Highway and then he showed them his childhood home which he said he hasn't been to in 20 years. He let the young artist know he started producing when he was 14 and he recorded TLC and Kriss Kross there. During the kids tour through the A their parents were back at the house wondering what they were up to. Once the kids got back on the trolley Jermaine Dupri turned on the beat produced by Mike Kalombo. So these five artist had their notepads out an pens flying. Jermaine Dupri questioned Lil Poopy because he fell asleep during the ride back home ( Awwww man) . I think it was so cool that Jermaine showed them around the Atlanta and I thought this was a really dope challenge . Once they arrived back to the house they let their parents know about their day in the A. Supa Peach let her sister know that a writing challenge had taken place and Precious Peach her sister tweaked her verse a little bit. The other artist are already questioning if Supa Peach writes her own raps. Miss Mulatto , Young Lyric, and Lil Niqo were definitely ready to hit the booth. So for the second part of the challenge Jermaine Dupri has the kids come to South Side Studio (where Mariah Carey , Bow Wow, and so many top artist have recorded) . So Mike Kalombo , Rufus Morgan, and Jermaine Dupri have each artist come in to record their song, Young Lyric goes first and you could definitely tell she was coming out of her shell and a more confident then she was the week before (because she didn't feel that #5 spot was acceptable). So Jermaine's advice to her was to slow down and to have clarity. Young Lyric was happy because she wrote the verse herself without her dad to critique it. You GO GIRL!! Lil Poopy hit the booth and started rapping his verse with the same lyrics that he spit during his challenge last week. Of course Jermaine Dupri stopped him and had to check him about his verse before he finished his song. Lil Niqo flow and delivery was on point he even dropped his notebook but he didn't really include the things he saw during the tour. Miss Mulatto came in the booth with a verse a hook and her confidence was just super high. Mike Kalombo asked Supa Peach to spit before she got in the booth and him and Rufus didn't feel that she wrote her verse. So they had her go get her book and then rap in the booth. I think this was a very creative challenge. It showed their on the spot ability to write, rap, and perform in the studio. So it's time for Jermain Dupri's hit list. Jermaine Dupri is straight up with these kids and their parents . He's letting them know "The Rap Game' isn't a game and that they have to be serious about everything.Producer Mike Kolombo joined Jermaine to assist Jermaine during his critique.
1-Miss Mulatto (Delivered an actual song)
2 Young Lyric (Mike Kolombo said she was shy but she turned up Jermaine and Mike said she just has to articulate and be more clear)
3 Lil Niqo (Sounded very professional but his verse could've included more about what he saw)
4 Supa Peach (They found out Precious Peach her big sister helps with her raps)
5 Lil Poopy (He fell asleep on the bus and he reused his rap)
Jermaine Dupri is letting these young stars and there parents know that they have to be serious, on point, and be able to handle these task because time is money and this business is important. He also said "Its nothing wrong with being a songwriter or helping with lyrics because he wrote tons of songs for other artist". He just wants these young stars to be able to write, deliver, and perform like a true artist. So week #2 was definitely a really big challenge for them. We are six weeks away from finding out which one of these talented young artist earned their spot on Jermaine Dupri's So So Def record label.
Immediately after the show you know I had to go play Jermaine Dupri's "Welcome To Atlanta" ft Ludacris video on full blast. So make sure you watch "The Rap Game" next week Friday at 10PM/9C.
Make sure you #TheRapGame for updates and more on the show.
THE MOGUL MINUTE : ENJOY, FEEL, AND REMEMBER THE MOMENT J.COLE FOREST HILLS DRIVE HOMECOMING MOVIE ( THE MOGUL GIRL)
"The opportunity is in your mentality"- J.Cole
Tonight J.Cole released his "Forest Hills Drive Homecoming" on HBO. The concert film included a full show from J.Cole, interviews from his supporters, interviews with people from his home-town Fayetteville, North Carolina, his friends, his mom, and his video updates from himself. I really enjoyed watching the concert although I wish I could've attended the actual tour and see him perform live. Sidebar : I really want some Krispey Kreme so bad (laughs). J.Cole is very motivational and his town looks up to him because he showed them that they can make it. One of the interviewees referred to him as the "King of Fayetteville". J.Cole expressed that he wants to do more for his town and that he even contemplates becoming mayor or city council one day. The fact that J.Cole was driving and just sharing his thoughts and feelings it emitted a very personal vibe as if we were actually riding with him. He expressed that it's so important to enjoy, remember, feel, and soak in the moment and appreciate everything. J.Cole's album "2014 Forest Hills Drive" is certified Gold. The album was definitely a game changer in the world of hip hop . During the film he talked about stepping into a new chapter in life in which he's focused on becoming a better human, a better man, and just grow as a person. The interview from his mom was so sweet and loving. You can tell she's proud of her son. She said "I tell Jermaine everyone loves him but not as much as me". She was so happy and expressed that people will be talking about her son's concert and music for decades.
Just watching J.Cole perform and tell his story on stage is inspiring. Again shout out to my friend Davon Gaskins for putting me on J.Cole in college (I will forever thank him for that lol). Just seeing J.Cole talk about wanting to perform at Crown Coliseum in his hometown and then for it to actually happen is just proof that if we stay focused and dedicated we can make it anywhere. When I purchased "2014 Forest Hill Drive" and listened to it straight through I realized the first word on the album was "Do" and the last word was "Love" ( I wrote about thathere) . That's what counts in this life! Love is so important. We have to love ourselves, each other, the things we have, and our gifts and talents. J.Cole definitely appreciated his fans for supporting him and he brought out Drake and Jay Z to perform. For updates on @JColeNC follow him on Twitter. S/o to J.Cole and the entire Dreamville !!
Mr.West is in the building! Last Friday Kanye released "Facts" (which is fire by the way) and today he released "Real Friends" & "No More Parties in LA " featuring Kendrick Lamar . The intro is produced by Kanye and the track is by Madlib. In other words Kanye is in his zone. "Real Friends" is so straight up . The songs content embodies numerous real life situations that we can relate to. How many of us are looking for real friends? How many of us only get contacted when people need something? Can we trust the people we called friends or even family sometimes ? Do you have people that are jealous because you're during your own thing? Had to change your number because people are so fake? Bad energy from people you use to roll with heavy? Man I love this song. Kanye even talks about having to pay his cousin $250,000 to get his laptop back. "No More Parties in LA" featuring Kendrick Lamar is a dope. Check out both songs below. Kanye is in his zone !!!!! #KanyeZoneFridays.

For eight weeks the kids and their parents/managers will live together . On the first episode Jyn Flowers (assistant to Jermaine Dupri) informed the kids that her boss was waiting for them . The kids and their parents headed over to T.I' s restaurant Scales 925 in Atlanta. When the kids arrived they met T.I and then the kids were introduced to the celebrity judge panel which included Brian Michael Cox, Da Brat, Polow Da Don, Johnte Austin, and Mike Kalambo. Then Jermaine dropped the bomb that the kids had to freestyle on the spot. Although the kids were surprised each of them stepped up to the plate and dropped a quick verse for the judges. The Rap isn't all glitz and glamour and you have to work your way up. o Jermaine Dupri informed them all that they would be interns . He gave each of the youth a task. During their task each kid was paired with a certain mentor. For example Lil Niqo was paired with Ludacris and Supa Peach was paired with Jyn Flowers (Jermaine Dupri's assistant) . During their task they had to rap about what they were doing .How well these kids do all count towards Jermaine Dupri's hit list. Each week he'll rank each kid from 1-5 and let's just say you want that number 1 spot.
The first week hit list went like this
The show is interesting and the kids definitely have work to put in. I interviewed Lil Niqo when he was 10 and had dropped his record "Okay Then" so its so cool to see him at 16 following his dreams and 1Mama Mogul is right by his side (you can listen here) . I also have been tuned into Young Lyric's upcoming as well. I commend all the young kids for aiming for their dreams and not giving up. So make sure you watch "The Rap Game" each week to see what happens next and find out whom is going to get that spot on Jermaine's "So So Def" label.
Happy Mogul Minute New Year everyone. 2015 felt like a cameo. You know made a quick appearance and then boom 2016 took over the show. I don't know about you all but last year was a huge learning experience. Well every year is a learning experience but 2015 was a very trying year. Yet I am so happy we have all stepped into 2016 with a new mind, new attitude, new outlook on life, and goals to be our best selves ( at least I hope you did). In numerology 16 represents self determination , wisdom, intuitive, family, pursuing goals, and completing them. Oh yes honey! 2016 is the year to get it done. Whatever it is you've been dreaming about or pondering on this is the year. I am so ready to continue to allow God to move in a major way in my life and in yours too.
I will be celebrating the 5th anniversary of The Mogul Minute this year, At 24 years old I am so proud of what I have accomplished and I'm looking forward to what's to come. When God gives you an idea and a gift it's not meant for anyone but you. No matter who tries to imitate or copy. There's only one me and there's only one you. So at the end of the day choose to be you. Don't just follow cause it's easy or because you are scared your original thoughts will fail. Go ahead do your own thing (laughs). It's okay believe in yourself just a little bit harder, work those thinking caps. Be unique, be different. Word on the street is an original is always better than a copy. There's so many awesome incredible things that are on the way you have no idea.
This year stop being afraid to speak up. Say what you have to. Don't just let people walk all over you. Stop letting people take advantage of you. Don't let another year go by and you haven't done anything that counts toward your dreams and goals. Everyday work a little bit more towards your vision. Speaking of vision if getting in shape and healthy is your vision . Oh goodness! I have some great news for you.

Let this year be the one that when it comes time for it to roll out that you are proud, happy, and no regrets. So with that said it's time to get to work! The Mogul Minute is forever! It's infinite. I love you all! I am so thankful that The Mogul Minute is world-wide. I have created something that is epic. That is great and that is iconic. I love The Mogul Minute and I'm glad to be The Mogul Girl. I started The Mogul Minute. I founded it! I coined the phrase. I find it pitiful that others are trying to use the phrase and copy The Mogul Girl and The Mogul Minute name and brand. As I said before there is only one me. I don't find the imitation flattering at all. Again use those thinking caps and make your own name and brand. I feel proud because I created my own lane and I want you all to feel the same way about your dreams and goals. At the end of the day I am thankful for my gifts and talents and I am thankful for family and friends and of course love.
Happy Mogul Minute New Year
- Love Always xoxo
The Mogul Girl
