Expect to see exclusive studio footage, inside artists homes, VIP parties and most importantly the stories that we captured on film! Some of the stories are so real that I was not able to comprehend the magnitude of one's struggles, but I learned a lot on how to be grateful and how much hard work goes in to success: emotional and financially.
It was a pleasure spending time out there with D. Wet. I think he has a great head on his shoulders and really wants to live a good life doing the things he enjoys doing, like the most of us. He slept on the couch and we had a great time talking, working, hanging out and doing what we do. We listened to a lot of Yeezus and had good bonding time.
Here's a bulleted out recap of what I took away from the trip - videos coming soon.
Here we go:
- Since we were surrounded by the African American entertainment community, I was a little hesitant that people would have been as cool as they were with Daniel and I. Being white, jewish and from the burbs, no one gave us a hard time and everyone I met accepted me and we were all homies
- The African American community are very similar to Jewish people: focused on culture, traditions, community and lifestyle
- Thank you to J.S. for allowing us to stay at her apartment - sorry for locking your key inside your house
- Daniel and I did great for our first time at a major event with dealing with the obstacles we faced
- I need to thank Side Car LA for transporting us around the city of LA - S/O to Strongman
- I love Yeezus (the album) more than I did last time
- I learned to develop a tolerance if something is not as exactly planned as originally planned out
- Some people try to become famous, others have a purpose with the hopes of being recognized for it
- We stayed open minded and interviewed non-celebs and that felt so much better and more consistent to our show style
- Cali is the entertainment capital
- Thanks to Malik for allowing us in to his world and recording some cool content without any issues
- Celebrities are simply people trying to pursue their passion and get paid for their craft
- So many people have put in years and years (decades) before they received any recognition
- I met a tong of people who were in a shitty situation and persevered their way out to something special, like earning platinum plaques
- Next time, we have a plan to improve our content/logistical preparations/video quality and promotion
