Chicken Dinner Date is a short, romantic, comedy about a guy trying to impress a girl by making her dinner. The film is based on a screenplay written by Writer/Producer Benn Flore. I finished editing the project days ago but the soundtrack took awhile.

I never appreciated how much influence a soundtrack has on a movie. Different sounds help convey the emotion of the story, other sounds set the pace. I've been on a few movie sets and more video sets than I can count, but I've never seen all the components that go into making a movie until now. This project gave me a whole new appreciation of the craft.

Below is the movie, check it out, leave a comment and if you like it tell a friend.



Speaking Chinese

What's Poppin People,

It's almost summer and Vinumous Records is bringing the heat. Welcome to party season!

This is a short three month period of festivals, concerts, and massive outdoor events. With summer almost here and the musical vibe has changed. No more rhymes about drinking in crowded bars on cold winter nights. Now its margarita's on the beach, and watching beautiful bodies in tiny bikini's.

To honor the coming season of festivities, we've reconstructed and added new pictures, merchandise and music. The Vinumous Records website will also be renovated in the coming weeks to give a more interactive experience.

We also released a video for the song "Wanna Sound Like Me" off Tha Audio Bully album. The video was just a project for the fans and was released with no promotion. You can check out the new video here:

Last, the new single "Speaking Chinese" was released June 12th and is available at all major music outlets. You can buy a copy of my new ladies anthem on iTunes by clicking the link. Check out the website, video and music. If you like what you see, drop a comment and don't forget to tell a friend to tell a friend.

Whats Poppin Music Lovers,

Here is my new video "My Addictions" off the Grindin Muzik album. The video features footage from shows in New York, Miami, Amsterdam and Las Vegas. The song is about dealing with addiction.

Everyone has an addiction to something. It can be to their cell phone, food, drugs, work, sex, or money. There's nothing wrong with having an addiction. It only becomes a problem when a person lets it get out of control. When I was younger that's what O.G.'s (Original "Old" Gangsta's) would call "having a monkey on your back." My addictions are no worse than then next persons the only difference is... I'm honest about mine.

Thanxx 4 the support.


Unseen Danger

It's the middle of the summer but it feels like fall. I don't know anywhere else on the planet (except New England) where the climate changes so quickly during one day. This morning was sunshine, this afternoon was rain mixed with hail (yes, frozen snow hail) then this evening is clear skies again.

Aside from surviving the climate change, life has been good. I've been working on the album, doing shows, open mics, and expanding the merchandising. The music is coming in a variety of flavors. There are several new songs. The two "Speaking Chinese" and "Novicane," have been added to my soundcloud. Both songs have videos being shot in the next few weeks. Both are demo versions and will be mixed for the album, but only one song is for the ladies.

Speaking Chinese is my ode to beautiful women. Not one particular race, color, religion, or nationality. I wrote the track with every type of woman in mind. It’s a summer song with a simple message and party flow. The video is being shot on the beach with a lot of sun, bikini's and bathing suits.

Novicane is a grimey, futuristic, aggressive track with dope production. The beat comes from the La Sombra crew from Spain. I did a collabo track for their album called "Todos a Una," which is for sale now by clicking the link. The video for Novicane is going to be a dark concept clip. It's similar to a short movie (with less acting) and will be released after Speaking Chinese.

Finally, the new free Tyger Vinum music app is available to download for all mobile platforms. You can either click the barcode on the front of my website and blog. Or you can click the link at the bottom of this post..cuz all roads lead to Ixtlan. Check out the new music, watch out for the new videos, download the app cuz it's FREE and don't forget to tell a friend to tell a friend.

Tha One an Only


 black rage

I've gained quite a few haters lately. Some even in the outer perimeter of my own social circle. Haters are people Having Anger Towards Everyone Reaching Success. I can't take credit for the acronym. I read it somewhere and thought it fit.

Hating is a weakness. It shows the person has a weak character, mind, and spirit. By hating they display to the world that they don't have the motivation, determination and ambitious drive to catch whatever dream they're chasing. Most haters do it cuz they envy a persons position. Meaning their social status, fame, wealth or possessions.

In the haters mind they believe that person doesn't deserve what they have. Or in some cases they believe they (the hater) can do it better. Whether it be sports, music, acting, art, or a well paying profession like doctor or lawyer. To fill the void that disappointment in their own life and envy creates...they hate on others, to feel better about themselves.

For all those poor souls who try and reason, debate or rehabilitate haters, take some simple advice "It's not worth it." Understanding a person doesn't stop them from spreading negativity. The way I see it. If haters spent less time hating and more on self-improvement they would be closer to reaching their goals and happier in life.

Let me take this moment to say "Thank-You" to all my haters! I appreciate living in your head rent free...all the time. The more people that hate, only shows validation that I'm getting closer to reaching success. That negative energy fuels my motivation and inspires me to work harder towards achieving my goals. By becoming successful I become truly worthy of all the wasted energy being expended hating.

On that note I'll share the most recent accomplishments. The label Vinumous Records signed a three year distribution deal with Blackhole Recordings a division of Koch/E1 distribution. We finally have a major only took ten years. All a major does is put my music in territories that were inaccessible as an independent. This creates new fans and touring opportunities for myself and other artists on the label.

Also this morning I finished editing the clip for the song "That's Life." It's track fourteen on the Grindin Muzik album, which is available for purchase in stores and on all digital outlets (iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Deezer, etc..). You can watch the video here. 

Life, like wine keeps getting better with time. Once again thanks to all my haters, you keep me on the grind. (Keep Hating)
