“This Is The Life” - Rick Ross feat. Trey Songz

“That was a great record. I think people kind of slept on it a little bit. Ross is a real cool dude. I’ve had the opportunity to work with him a couple of times – He actually came down to the turkey drive that I do every year in my home town Clarksdale, Mississippi, so he’s a phenomenal guy – but we were in the studio just playing beats and the vibe came and he got in the booth. Of course he’s a lyricist, so he don’t really sit there and write or nothing like that. He just goes in the booth and it just flows. That’s actually one of my favorite records.”

    This is a great thing to happen to you. I wish you much success. Now I have a daughter (Amanda Reddick aka Coco Redi) would like to be in the music business. She writes raps all the time and a friend laid tracks (music) to her lyrics. Her music can be improved upon. She could use your help. Some of her music can be found on Youtube under Coco Redi. Thank you in advance. (only a mother would do this with social media).

    Please somebody tell me why a young intelligent man like this would call himself “Black Elvis”. You know I am an older person but this is such a slap-in-the-face to Black people. Lift us up my brother Elvis was not a good role model for black youth. He didn’t like black people. Your name is not an insult to him. Its an insult to us. I am still happy for your success thou! Please know who’s looking at you kid.
