BIG TEACH GIVES PITBULL FANS A HISTORY LESSON


A must on the watch list is this interview by Felisha Monet of 99 Jamz with Big Teach, part 2 (CEO PlanetPit.com)  who was with Pitbull from day one. The days when history was already being made, the kind of history that cannot be remade or imitated but appreciated by us fans today. 

Today Big Teach has his 'iHustle' on strong, fierce and in full force. As the Vice President of Polo Grounds Music (Pitbull), Big Teach is also on the journey of following another passion - food! Big Teach is the founder of Chef Teach Creates House Of Mac. Having had the honour of eating Chef Teach's delicious mac cheese made by the man himself before his venture started, no other has come close since. Face screwed up and saying "That doesn't taste anywhere as good as the once Teach made..it's rubbish" is a sentence that often passes my lips soon after with great disappointment. Teach I want some mac cheese!

I urge all fans to watch this interview. New school fans learn more and the old school fans? We'll enjoy, appreciate, pause for thought and reminisce. 

If it wasn't for Big Teach opening my email a few years ago I wouldn't be doing what I do today and enjoying my passion and also be saved from one of the lowest points in my personal life. Thank you Big Teach and Supa Cindy (99 Jamz and CinD Media) forever grateful to you both- Pitbull too of course!

JAMIE DRASTIK: JUMP THE TAKE OFF ALBUM REVIEW

Check out the review of Jamie Drastik's latest album in the video below (as exclusive to JamieDrastikDirect.com April 7th 2015)  Why not read along too!

Jump The Take Off may have been released on the 1st of April but this album was no fool's joke and took off in style. Jamie Drastik, his producers and writers have really outdone themselves on this one.
 
Jump The Take off kicks off with The Town and gets straight IN.YOUR.FACE and arrests the mind. Getting listeners fired up before the rest of the album even starts. Demonstrating this early bird’s hunger to succeed with word-play brain tantalisers like “My plug good with the keys no typos” and tributes to his boss “Your boss in the water but he ain’t swimmin’ My boss is performing on Thanks Giving…” and many more stinging rhymes along with heavy guitar notes and a heavy metal edge along with some old school record scratching. Razor sharp rhymes Jamie.
 
It’s hard not to listen to Jamie Drastik’s lyrics without getting involved with so much thought and emotion. Yet that’s also the best way to enjoy it. Jamie has a unique gift of being able to engage, connect and draw listeners in with his voice, depth of his rhymes and overall style of telling a story and getting a message delivered.
 
I found it incredibly hard listening to Jump The Take Off in particular for the first time. The reason being, I listen to a song and I find it hard to move onto the next one and have that same song on loop. Once moved on, then that one on loop. One of these songs half way through the album is Tables featuring Stacey Michelle. Jamie tells us a story starting from the school years of Henry who is bullied by Jack with the use of tacs and social media. The bullying form also tackles the ignorance of an individuals origins. Henry who decides to handle the matter himself to get through the school years, does well for himself and finds himself on a panel of managers hiring for maintenance staff and in rolls Jack (with the tac ) as a candidate who apologises to Henry for bullying him as a child. Now with a chequered past, criminal record and children unable to see until he has money to send. What would you do if you were in Henry’s shoes? Would you hire Jack or get your own back? What choice would you make? Henry clearly didn’t want to feel like that for one more day or give into the bullies and let it be fuel to his fire to be stronger, wiser over the years and the bigger person and takes Jack on.
 
Moral of the story, karma always catches up, the tables and dynamics of power can turn around at any moment with the message to treat everyone with respect whether you’re at school or an adult. On the other side of the picket fence it can also be perceived as being about making peace with yourself and the other person and not reducing yourself to the level of revenge. Revenge would only eat up the person dishing it out after all. A lot more to this song and only Jamie tells it better so if you haven’t done so already I urge you to listen to this a few times on loop and not miss a rhyme. My interpretation and perspective of the song.
 
About Me sees Jamie setting the record straight with ample conviction about what people may say about him in the industry including his teaming up with Pitbull. A MUST listen to in all aspects.
 
NaNaNaNaNaNa Drastik teaches us not to let anyone f*ck with your vibe or your day on My Day. Amongst other examples, My Day sees Jamie use experiences with his troublesome car which soaks up his hard earned money and tries to dampen the mood with a new date, but fails. Dealing with keeping his car going with  “I Just gotta keep it pushing like a woman up in labour” line which made me chuckle as it took me back to Switch Kicks for a minute on the previous album Jump The Decision. From walking in those mother f*ckin heels all day to to into labour! Happy, feel good vibe with a polite warning of  ‘Don’t f*ck up my day’. This song is like a breath of fresh air. Jamie demonstrates that we have a choice in the way we approach and react to things. Just like Henry did in Tables. Count your blessings and focus more on those that are on the way.
 
Tomorrow flows perfectly after My Day. Tomorrow features Shawn Vanbrocklin who makes another appearance on a Jamie track and talks about looking ahead and spending all the tomorrows together with a special person.
 
Just Jump a song which right from the first note and even before the first verse started, this song invaded my brain to give the image and feeling of just looking up into a clear blue sky and clouds, arms wide and spinning around. Care free, uplifted and happy. Then the second verse kicks in and Jamie talks about looking around when you’re in the air and looking around, clouds and being blue and taking it all in. Message received and understood. Got it. Jamie delivered the message and visuals before even hitting the verse that suggests it. “Live life ‘cos life don’t give a refund” – never a truer thing said.
 
There’s something special about the way three songs in particular are sequenced back to back to carry the same great vibe. My Day first, followed by Tomorrow, followed but Just Jump
 
Turn it up a notch again and Jamie tells us he’s been around the world and Came Back. Holding his career working hard and balancing family. Being humble, whilst other artists may celebrate and gloat with offence to others with a famous wise mantra we all know “Don’t talk about it be about it.” Speaking of offence I better mention 845, can’t mention Jamie Drastik without it, it’s his town!
 
Other highlights on the album are Ready For Me and Bikes at Night (which conjures up that famous shot of Jamie on a bike with that sweatshirt of Party & Women & Dreams & Money slogan. Inviting you to join him if you ride the full adventure. The album also features a bonus track by Apache Chief featuring Lacey Statton – Face In The Clouds which is a also has a great hook.
 
 
Thank You Part Two has become an album tradition where Jamie connects with fans directly and sends heartfelt thanks with mentions. First of all I want to say thank you Jamie for my mention and I don’t have a fragment of doubt that you are about to take the UK by storm anytime now and yes you bet into the shows. Thank you. The interviews are a pleasure. Thank you Jamie and your music for coming at the right time, in a particular chapter in my life and inspiring me to push on hustle harder and believe. Drumming it into my head with your stinging rhymes.
 
It’s always great to hear fellow fans and #Pitbullgirl mentions on Thank You, such as Gina from California. Gina says my favourites on Jump The Take off are, My Day, Jump , Thank You Part 2
My husband Jimmy and I are very thankful for Jamie including our story of hope and faith in his song Thank You Part 2. When we first heard it, we both cried. Happy tears flowing. It's absolutely beautiful how he captured our story"

SLAMin' VISIT TO A GREAT SCHOOL


It was a heart warming, exciting and breathtaking experience rolled into one visiting the incredibly impressive SLAM. The Sports Leadership and Management Charter school which Pitbull helped to build in his own old neighbourhood and for which Mr 305-Worldwide is also an ambassador.


A place which binds together a partnership between sports and education where youngsters can grow, follow their passion for sports and learning is made fun through the school's engaging and entertaining curriculum. A revolutionary seven-story first ever school in Florida to offer sports related broadcasting, management and medicine middle and high school education program.

Walking through the corridors and peeking into classes where children were working attentively and at class switch over times just the sound of enthusiastic, happy and motivated students was music to my ears. It's also a fact that Pitbull too is known to make surprise visits and peek into classes at times and walk around the school.

Approaching the entrance of the SLAM gymnasium, I was greeted by an excited group of students pouring out in crowds and running out of the gym from the opposite direction. Brushing past with joy and sounds of excitement having just finished a class. A memorable moment and feeling of many during my visit to the magnificent school that brings a glowing smile and feeling from within each time I think about. 

This is the breath taking, iconic fully equipped gym with the globally recognised windows and views where Pitbull spends his birthdays with the students and where this year Pitbull was named as Ambassador of the Arts for Florida. Where his birthday January 15th itself was declared as Pitbull Day by Mayor Tomas Regalado. 
As announced on Pitbull Day this year, it was amazing to catch a glimpse of an untouched, raw and 'before' view of the area nearby where the SLAM school is to be extended and I am excited to share this with the fellow fans especially and cannot wait see is the complete 'after' version (below)


A dance studio (below) was very inspiring and a pleasure to meet and tell the teacher how I wish I was young enough or whether they would make an exception and allow me to join the school dance program.


A roof top of SLAM gave an abundance of spectacular views of the neighbourhood where Pitbull grew up, downtown Miami and a glimpse of the Marlins Ball Park. It is also the roof top where images of Pitbull have been shot such as promos for his fragrance.

Being a fan and admirer of all his achievements inside and outside of music, Being aware of Pitbull's struggles as he grew up, how his very own teachers inspired him and directed him on the path towards changing his life and how today Pitbull is here giving the the kids the a place to learn, grow and enjoy education by making it fun, cool and providing the opportunity through a strong, experienced and dedicated team of inspiring teachers giving their everything along with the equipment, technology and hands-on approach was a proud, grateful and emotional experience.

A very special thank you to Ana of the Slam Shop Team for showing me around the outstanding school. It was also a pleasure to meet some of the other teachers, Principal Alex Tamargo and members of the SLAM Board and Team Pitbull. It was an absolute honour and pleasure to be able to visit the school and see all the wonderful facilities and things that everyone involved in the school does. Thank you for having me. Thank you for taking the time to talk to me. Thank you Pitbull for investing in education and giving back.

Pitbull fans please check out  more images from the day and the links below to explore more about SLAM and remember to get your SLAM shop gear! Thank you.

CIRCLE HOUSE STUDIOS & CIRCLE HOUSE VILLAGE - PITBULL HISTORY!





Both Circle House Studios and Circle Village Studios, situated in North Miami have a welcoming, relaxed ambience where the touch of Jamaican influence can also be felt. Each studio in separate buildings located opposite each other which can easily be mistaken for beautiful homes have multiple studios and rooms within.


Apart from state of the art equipment, the studios also feature superb detailed music influenced artwork, decor and ornaments throughout whilst clearly providing an inspirational, comfortable and a professional environment. Extending to outdoor pools with waterfalls to lounging areas, areas where artists can refresh to providing in-house chefs to cater to an artists needs.

The concept and ownership of these impressive studios belong to the legends of reggae, the band Inner Circle. Sweat (A La La Long) by Inner Circle was the infectious global hit, which reached No. 3 here in the UK singles chart and it's also these 'Bad Boys of Reggae' who also have the catchy number Bad Boys as featured in the film Bad Boys starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. 

To name but a few, it is a place where global hits are recorded by artists from Pitbull, Pharrell Williams, Mary J Blige, Enrique Iglesias, Uncle Luke's 2 Live Crew, Rico Love to Maffio who I was fortunate to bump into as he was entering Circle House Studios for a session. 

Circle House Studio also has the famous Circle House Wall signed by artists from Justin Beiber to Pitbull of course! 

Surrounded by impressive plaques from Trick Daddy and Trina. My eyes are drawn to the numerous Pitbull plaques placed in both studios. At the Circle House Studio I was taken in particular by a plaque of where the  journey took off, Pitbull's very first studio album and still very much a personal favourite, M.I.A.M.I. 


Filled with emotions of awe, excitement and admiration to be able to see the M.I.A.M.I plaque but to also visit the iconic studio, a 'mecca' for old school Pitbull fans like myself who followed the Lil' Chico from the beginning where Pitbull history was made. That is the studio where Culo was recorded and remixed.

Amazing, remarkable and breath taking studios with so much detail and thought given to the artists. Thank you Circle House Studios, Circle House Village, The Bad Boys of Reggae Inner Circle, Abebe and Cindy for such an incredible experience.

Without further a do, I will let the photos speak for these astounding studios.

Dale!

CALLE OCHO 2015





The annual Calle Ocho 2015 Latin street festival was one big party. Full of Latin pride even I got whirled into the vibe feeling like an honorary part Cuban, Dominican, Puerto Rican for the day!

Vibrant, colourful Cuban and Puerto Rican flags everywhere, an array of food flavours in the atmosphere, drinks flowing in every direction with the temperatures soaring luckily I had my Voli cap to keep the sun off (Cheers Voli!).Chef Teach Creates also had a stand, mac cheese not to be missed! Unfortunately I did miss it so I'm currently nursing my bruises from kicking myself for it! 

Initially accompanied there by the official Pitbull impersonator Mr Pimpbull 305, I later parked my culo outside the Kiwani's stage where Mr 305 Inc artists were due to perform.

Apart from the sensational Sensato, there was one act in particular I had travelled to see Live, that is the extremely talented Papayo. Screaming at the front row "Papayo!" He came towards my end of the stage and said "Besos..!" with a gesture to match. Thank you, I caught it! Right back at you Papayo! Listening and watching Papayo Live was a dream. Dressed in a slick black jacket, shirt and loafers Papayo worked the stage and got the crowd going. A natural performer 
with great stage presence and live vocals spot on. 



The biggest treat however was yet to come as Sensato and Papayo performed together their hit Que Lo Que, sending the crowd into a frenzy. Earlier Sensato sent the crowd wild and performed alongside El Tal Mickey hits such as Watagatapitusberry, Booty Booty Booty and other personal favourites Bello and Taxi. Known for his unique style and for me his shoes is something my eyes always get drawn to in vibrant animal print with just under the knees but worn over the tracksuit cream socks. Only the Del Patio can pull that look off 'bello!' Later I challenged Team Sensato's El Tal Mickey who can do the 'bird sound' better check it out below along with more videos and images of the day.


Mr 305 Inc's Fuego also performed some of his hits and was a pleasure to see. 


Elsewhere while Space 305 was busy taking shots of the acts on stage, local Pitbull Girl Michelle Dennis and I were busy taking shots if him. Amongst others, Space 305 is also responsible for many of Mr 305 Inc's Jamie Drastik exceptional music videos such as The Decision from Jamie Drastik's latest album Jump.

Jason Cerda (below right) in particular was an act that was a breath if fresh air. All singing, dancing with 'the body' and such a delight to meet. An extremely talented artist. Thank you Jason for stopping by to talk to me it was an honour-say hi to your lovely mum too who was with Michelle and I watching your performance with pride.


Elsewhere breakdancing, Miss Carnival Miami to twerking contests were in full flow to entertain the crowd.

As the day and performances went on it was Flo Rida brought to Calle Ocho 2015 by Mr 305 Inc who was closing the show, crowd surfing, stripping off his top (no complaints from me) and gathering footage for a new video.

A great experience and fun day all round later heading off to Mango's with Mr Pimpull where it was lovely to meet Team Pitbull's DJ Africa.

Calle Ocho 2015 was in it's 38th year of celebrating Latin culture and music. Where proceeds from sponsorship of which Mr 305 Inc participates, goes towards the Kiwani's Of Little Havana Foundation.

On the way home walking through Calle Ocho and feeling the moment and reflecting on the day amongst the hustle and bustle of excited, happy crowds brushing past, I come across a a great 'Fresco' murial by Artistes Pumariega of Pitbull which was the icing on the cake to the end of a perfect day.

Check out the photos and video's below. Let me know if I can get close enough to Team Sensato's El Tal Mickey's signature scream!)  

Thank you, enjoy and dale!
