Get To Know Rodney Tubbs aka BIG TUBBS

Posted by Monet Wright on November 14, 2012 at 12:05 AM Comments comments (0)


"RODNEY TUBBS"


 Recently we have had the pleasure to catch up with rapper, producer, engineer, and actor Rodney Tubbs. We discussed his music and film career thus far, and how we plans to make an impact on the music industry in the near future. Check out BIG TUBBS!


SS: Can you give us a brief description of who you are and what you do in the entertainment industry?


RT: I am a producer, engineer, rap artist, musician at heart, and I do it. I tend to pick up a lot of things to cut out the middle man, but my main thing is production. That’s my first love.


SS: How long have you been apart of the entertainment industry?


RT: WOW! I have been doing this music thing since 93’. As far as music, I have been doing music since the 6th grade. I kind of fell in love with music. I have been in the industry since 1993. The first song I did was in college for Elizabeth City radio station. in 91’ I hooked up with a guy who was going there for music. Him and I did our first track on the radio. Till this day they still play that song on the campus radio station, sort of like an anthem.


SS: What are some of your most memorable career highlights?


RT: I did music for Walt Williams (Houston Rockets). The cities finest. We had the first mixtape that I can remember, ever. Back in 99’, that was for the hottest artist in the city. That was one of my first highlights. I did music for Bizzy Bone, Eric Sermon, my man Julian Edwards, Allen Iverson, and Marcus Camby. On film scence, I was on “The Wire” I had my own crew and did Co-op meetings for 2 seasons. The 1st season I was an extra and did prison scenes with Omar. I also did music for Julius Stackhouse. I also had a deal with the great Bernie Mac before he passed (may he rest in peace) for a move called “Dead Beat Detectives” alongside Mike Houston (Whitney Houston’s brother) and Mike Mills. There are plenty more artist that I worked with, but I made the mistake of not copyrighting my my music. Songs like “No More Drama”, “DC or Nothing”, and “Hell Yeah”.


SS: How do you plan to give back to the community, if you already haven't; if you have, what have you done?


RT: Yes, I want to give back to where I came from. I want to start a company called Save One, Save Them All, a non-profit organization. Where I grew up in S.E. DC, kids don’t really have anything to do. In the inner city 5-6 blocks away, you would not want to stay in their territory. I want that to be my focal point and grow. I believe that if I save one, they will pass it on to someone else. The little bit of people that helped me get to where I am today, helped. There is no telling where I would be. They were all black men that helped me. The little that did help did a lot, and that is why I want to start my foundation.


SS: What is your main objective/ goal with your craft? How will you make your mark in this industry?


RT: My main goal is to get my music into the right hands. My main focus is to get my music out there to the people. If I get the mainstream artist to hear my music, it speaks for itself. I want to give the people real music. -- good music-- feel good music. This is the first meeting where they hear the music and see the face behind it.


 SS: If you could go back in time would you? What would you change and why?


RT: If I had to, I would change some of the people I dealt with. As far as the things I went through, I would not change anything, because I am still here. I would change my affiliations that held me back. Its like God will give you a blessing, but he won’t if you are holding on to someone that he does not want to bless.

 

SS: What is your formula for success in the music  industry?

RT: My formula for success is my music. R.O.A.N.D Music ( round like a complete circle). I want to be the ruler of a new day, my label is the formula. I always had a production company (Ghettofied). Making feel good music, and bringing in more producers and writers. My formula is R.O.A.N.D Music. I am the CEO. No middle man, I am the BOSS!

Get to know Young Bleed

Posted by Monet Wright on August 22, 2012 at 12:20 AM Comments comments (0)


           YOUNG BLEED


This past weekend Shayvon Studios caught up with No Limit's Young Bleed, and we were able to get a deeper look into his experiences in the entertainment industry as a southern rapper.


 Shayvon Studios (SS): Can you give me a brief description of who you are and what you do in the entertainment industry?

Young Bleed (YB): I became a part of No Limit Records and Priority Records in 1997-2002. I had a hit record called "How Ya Do Dat". Then, I joined C-Loc Records  & Concentration Camp in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.


SS: How long have you been apart of the enterainment industry?

YB: I have made it 15 years in the music industry. I got started when I was 11 years old. Music and poetry were always in my family, so I was inclined to do music, since I was 9 years old.
 
SS: What are some of your most memorable career highlights?

YB: Signing with No Limit and Priority Records in 1997. Having a hit record. Having a lot of underground records, there are a lot of beautiful moments. Yeah a lot!
 
SS: How do you plan to give back to the community, if you already haven't; if you have, what have you done?

YB: I have made a number of family and street contributions. I always do that. I am always in the streets to the suburbs, they give to me, so I have to give back. I take care of my family, so they take care of me.
 
SS: What is your main objective/ goal with your craft? How will you make your mark in this industry?

YB: I come from a parody stricken background so I like to give back to the single moms and kids in group homes, because that's where I came from. I'm turning negative into positive. Free my man Boosie. I want to make sure this rap dream comes true. I want to find a message in the music. There is always a cause and effect to everything and I just want to keep the music going.
 
SS: If you could go back in time would you? What would you change and why?

YB: In rap I wish that nothing happened to Biggie, 2Pac, Pimp C, etc. Free Boosie and all the homies locked down. As far as what God gives you, I don't regret anything. I like to just live and thank God. You might have a lot of things that happen, but that is part of life. And R.I.P Bernie Mac.
 

SS: What is your formula for success in this industry?

YB: God... Family... Business. You have to learn the business and respect God and family. You have to go back to where it came from, God 360 degrees. Get your mind on your money, and take care of yours and keep God first.

RZA of Wu-Tang Clan

Posted by Shayvon Studios on August 14, 2012 at 11:20 AM Comments comments (1)

Recently the one and only "RZA" of the Legendery group "Wu-Tang Clan" has a new movie entitle "The man with the iron fist" to be released very soon. We at Shayvon Studios congratulate  the "RZA" on his on-going success! Check out a few words from RZA and the movie trailer of "The Man with the Iron fist"

Words from RZA

 Destiny has its way of being followed controlled and simply fated without our knowing. Well here is a case of a mixture of the three. When I was working on "The man with the Iron Fists" I had planned on having Tony Ja in the film. Due to schedules and other parameters it couldn't come to fruition. Yet thru our martial common thread Tony and his team invited me to Thailand to work on his new film TYG2 in 3D. And to basically join in on some serious ass kicking. I accepted and here we are together on set. Tony and I have been comrades for nearly 7 years. It's great to finally get to work together. We are both avid martial art fans and plan on doing future collaborations. If "The man with the Iron Fist" hits it's projected mark we could be seeing Tony Ja joining the cast of the sequel.
