Chris Lighty on the Music Business

January 4, 2011

MUSIC this is a business and despite all the glamour and glitz there are people really breaking their necks on an individual and team basis.I have 16 to 18 hour days and try to juggle my business,a wife,a family and people think it is easy. The best is when my friends from the hood decide this is their new meal ticket and don’t understand why they aren’t rolling in the dough and take offense when they aren’t being catered to as if they were a client and not someone trying to get on. I am very grateful to be in this business as something interesting is always going on and we are at a crossroads where the expansion of our business whether thru the digital realm or the brand marketing angle are creating new opportunities and income streams. That being said everyone should chase their dreams but remember it is up to you to make your dreams come true. The next man or woman shouldn’t have their career used as your personal spring board. You have to find your lane and make it work!!!! Next blog: New york hip hop and the new york state of mind. stay tuned

  2. Hey, that’a real talk. You have to stay on the grind

  3. Now that’s real talk! I hear people talking constantly and they don’t seem to get it, there is no such thing as a regular work day, you have no regular days. The only days you have off, oh, that’s right you have no regular off days. You work all day and night, even your dreams are about the next deal/project and your next strategic move. And then there’s your Family, can’t leave them out. You still have to make equal time for your family, especially if you have small children, you don’t wont to miss them growing up, time goes by so fast.
