My Overall Experience At Revolt Music Conference 2017, Miami Florida - P Diddy Town Hall Meeting, Queen Latifah, TI, David Banner and more 

From the moment I made up my mind, December of 2013, that I wanted to blog about entertainment, I have made it my business to add to the knowledge I have about the industry. From buying books on the subject, going back to school for Mass Communication, and constantly googling new information about the industry, I’ve been on it.  


When I heard about P Diddy Revolt Music Conference 2017, in Miami, I had to jumped right on, even though, the price was high. You must invest in yourself and your career.  


It has been four days of wealth. Getting pure knowledge about the music industry from legends and experts.

On the first day, King Combs, 21 Savage and French Montana had the room on fire. The Conference is loaded with executes from the American Music industry and artists. The highlight of the night was Miami Mayor, Philip Levine awarding P Diddy with Miami 100 years cion and French Montana. You can check out some videos from the night on my Instagram. Of course, there was the educational panels, sharing their knowledge.  

Day 2: Artists, activists and writers came together to ​dialogue on how to impact change and challenge the political system​.​​​ The panel, which was brilliantly moderated by Jeff Johnson, the CEO of JIJ Communications, was comprised of ten individuals who continue to utilize their platforms with the utmost urgency and responsibility, tirelessly advocating for social justice, challenging oppression and denouncing the malevolent actions of the current administration. During the passionate dialogue, artist/activists Mysonne, Joey Bada$$ and T.I. were joined by the Rev. Shane R. Smith, President, National Action Network San Diego; Datwon Thomas, Editor in Chief, Vibe; Rob Kenner, Executive Editor, Mass Appeal; Vanessa Satten, Editor in Chief, XXL; Karen Civil, Author, Media Maven, Brand Curator; and Shaheem Reid, Host/ Writer/ Producer, REVOLT TV.

The day continued with more educational panels and ended with a Gala Dinner.  


The dinner was is a beautiful celebration to honor Queen Latifah.  She received the 2017 REVOLT Icon Award. 

Lauryn Hill ripped the stage at the Gala. 


The conference ends today.  There is a film festival going on for the rest of the day. It has been a great experience so far.  May God presents me with opportunities to impact the Liberian Entertainment Industry with the knowledge acquired.

The rumor is true.  Speaking with Liberian musician Stunna management this morning, it has being confirmed that Stunna and his team are negotiating with Universal Music to take on the artist.  His team did not confirmed the exact amount, because negotiation is still in process, but it has been said that $1million was the first offer.  The global company's main rival is Temple Music, home to Nigeria's Iyana, who has worked with the Liberian artist in the past.
