Wow, where to begin. Coming in especially after the orientation where I met Abhita and Marat for the first time, I was expected big things from the program and can say they were exceeded in every respect. I don’t think I could have been given a clear perspective into the industry, while having actual experience added to it. The program really helped with figuring a lot about myself, and also giving me an idea of what to do in the future. I was inspired everyday to try and come back better every week with the amazing fellow future music moguls I was with, and the pressure I put on myself to make sure I took advantage of this program. My conversations with my fellow members of the program, the TA’s, and Marat and Abhita were life changing. Seeing how much everyone else was doing for their development, and then getting honest/great feedback from the TA’s and facility was crucial to the growth I had from being in the program. I’ve never been in an environment where there was such a level of competitiveness and yet overall support for one another. Alfredo, you’re definitely going to make an impact on the industry and you were really helpful with talking business and then also giving me your perspective on how you got into Clive. In addition I thought your passion/hunger was so inspiring, make sure you never lose that. I also can’t wait to see what happens with your artist! Topaz, yeah there was that day were you helped me with delivery in the studio when I was messing but you helped with much more than that. You brought out my competitive nature, and desire to be a much better rapper/artist. I hope you take off with this next project, and I better see some funky shit there haha. Sedona, the minute you said you were into St.Vincent too I knew you had to be awesome. I relate to you a lot, and your support was so crucial to me not letting any of my growing pains with rap deter me from sticking with it. Also your music is awesome, keep getting it with that I can’t wait to hear more from you. Marat you were awesome with your lessons about the business, and that time you gave me the g talk about me as a rapper was incredibly helpful thank you for always keeping it real. Abhita you’re beyond awesome! The talks about production in class, and in our off time were really helpful. I didn’t think it was possible for me to be more interested in production, but my time in the program made it clear that’s something I want to look into thank you so much for that. To my fellow Future Music Moguls, you guys were beyond helpful. From the times where y’all inspired me because of how talented you guys are and how much work you all put in, to your support I couldn’t think of a better group for this. I know you all have the tools to be successful with music, and know if we all stick to the paths we’re currently on we’ll be working together in the industry! Overall I’m going to miss this program so much, it was an incredible opportunity and such a blessing. If I ever make it, I don’t think I’ll be able to point out something more crucial to me doing that then this program. So this isn’t farewell for good, July 19th we’re all going to kill it and obviously we’re going to stay in contact. I feel like I’m cutting the thank you’s to the faculty too short, but I hope I made it clear how grateful I was to meet all of you and gain so much from everyone. I hope we all keep the same fire, and passion that brought us to the program and go on to do big things.
