JUSTIS: Peace and blessings
QTP: For those that don’t know, talk a little about yourself and what it is that you do
JUSTIS: Peace, I wear quite a few hats most recently my focuses have been with promotions and project management/development. I promote products,events, artists mainly as well as assist with development of each. Im also involved with artist booking. I also co manage a few artists.
QTP: How long have you been with Wu-Tang Management?
JUSTIS: I have been with WTM officially for 4 years
QTP: Who are some of the artists you’ve worked with over the course of your career and who are you currently working with?
JUSTIS: Ive worked with Flo Rida, Beenie Man, Buju Banton, Sizzla, Capelton, DMX, basically Def Jam roster between 98-2001. So So Def, The Brat, Ying Yang Twins, The Wailers, Dead Prez, etc.Recently I have been working alot with some of the Wu Affiliates, Blue Raspberry, Cappadonna, Hell Razah, Buddha Monk, Kinetic 9, Eternal to name a few also Krumbsnatcha, Paparatzi, JonJon the Son along with a few others most currently
QTP: How did your career start?
JUSTIS: Well I started DJin professionally in 1996. From there I went on to intern with Def Jam and So So Def. I began promoting my own shows, parties etc after realizing that I was able to bring people out myself and avoid the promoters (middle men) and getting paid insufficiently after providing the bulk of the entertainment to the venue. While in college I also started working for a radio station (WVFS) which gave me a start in radio. I met alot of artists and people attached to the business side of the industry. I also got noticed by several artists for my ability to write and arrange music. I have since gone on to ghostwrite for a few artists.
QTP: When did you first meet Razah?
JUSTIS: LOL…Well I originally met Razah in Atlanta sometime in the late 90s. We spoke briefly and didnt speak again until last year sometime when we were reintroduced via family…
QTP: How did you get involved with Ghetto Govt?
JUSTIS: Well Ive always had an extremely high regard for Razah as one of my favorite MCs within the Wu and generally speaking. Before we could meet again I was actively promoting his Heaven Razah album and providing placements for his releases. After speaking for sometime he acknowledged my work and ask me to come on board and assist with some projects.
QTP: What were some of the most memorable things you’ve done over the course of your career?
JUSTIS: As a DJ spinning for an audience of over 10,000 at Atlanta’s Tri state party! The energy was crazy and to this the idea of making thousands of people move at my command is exhilerating. Working with the legendary Wailers (Bob Marley’s band) nuff said thats just history. Getting a check for writing a record. Im proud of that considering I dont consider myself an artist yet Ive gotten paid for making music. My biggest accomplishments are still to come really but Im most proud of those accomplishments to date..
QTP: What projects are you working on right now both music & otherwise?
JUSTIS: Other than working with artists and promotions/development of their projects and brands. Im working with Krumbsnatcha to build our label Mind Power. We will be developing books, clothing, film and more under the imprint as well as grooming new artist. I am active with Wu Radio, Wu Worldwide DJ Coalition and Wu Tang Management and the development of ventures under that banner. I have 2 books ive written and im wrapping up the final edits and moving forward to the publishing phase. I also look forward to attending law school in the near future. Music is great but I have many more aspects of life to focus on in the future.
QTP: You’ve worked with some of the greatest emcees ever to touch a mic, do you have any advice or tips for new and upcoming artists that you can share?
JUSTIS: Work. Nothing happens over night. You must invest in yourself or no one else will. Stay focused. Stay consistent. Be humble.
QTP: Anything else you want folks to know?
JUSTIS: Im here to work and assist those who are ready. This is a business and people tend to forget that but its not always about monetary transfer. Relationships are the most important thing to me. I got a real story to tell as far as music is concerned and life in general. Before its all said and done I will tell my story. Im actually planning to step out of my “box” and challenge myself creatively to build a project that will help tell my story…Universal peace and blessings to everyone…

HOSTED BY DJ BIG MAULIK
QTP: Peace Fam!
C.F.: Peace Fam, it is a pleasure to meet you!
QTP: For those that don’t know, explain a little about yourself and what it is that you do.
C.F.: Well, I go by the name Culture Freedom. I’m a professional Graphic Design Artist. I actually gave myself the name (Culture Freedom) in regards to me finding knowledge of self and wanting to express the name by representing the culture and the way of life artistically. Also, with the talent I was born and blessed with, I chose to strengthen the skill and use it to help support the culture of art and Hip Hop music as well as other like-minded artists who also share the same passions as me. I’m actually a drawing artist. I never went to school or nothing to learn how to draw; I just grabbed a pen and started using my imagination to create what came to my mind.
QTP: How long have you been an artist? How did you get started?
C.F.: I have been an artist since my early childhood years. I used to draw my favorite cartoon characters and switch them up. My favorite characters were He-Man & Pac Man. I used to draw a Pac-He-Man Character combining the two. That’s pretty much what started my passion for drawing – just being able to express myself through creative thinking. Then later on, me and my cousin used to draw a lot together when we were young. We would watch cartoons, and then draw our own comic books and read each other’s work when we were finished.
QTP: How did you meet Razah and get involved with GGO?
C.F.: I met the God through both my family Automatik and My long-time friend Miverson. It was very crazy how it all panned out; because my homie Miverson introduced me to Automatik and then later on found out we were related. I didn’t know that me and Automatik were cousins until me & him actually started building because we’re both from the same state; Rhode Island. I had actually done a cover for an album dropping soon from Razah which is titled: El Raziel. But that artwork is going to be revised into something more detailed. It was Miverson who had set that up for me to do the artwork for Razah. I then got re-introduced to Razah by my cousin Automatik, and from there, they made me a part of GGO as N.A.S.A. CommandCenter which means: Nubian Artist Seraphim Artwork!
QTP: What projects are you working on? Anything that folks can expect?
C.F.: I’m working on several projects. One that can be expected shortly is a project by a great artist I’m currently working with under my Staten All Stars affiliation. His name is Fes Taylor, and the album he’s dropping is called “The Mannequin”. He is a really great artist. A lot of my statistic achievements were because of him. I do all of his artwork as well as the other Staten All Star members’ artwork as I am the Chief in-house Art Director for the Staten All Stars. I’m also working on a cartoon project for two other artists who as a group go by the name the Loudmoufs (Tommy Whispers & Unspoken). We are all working collectively together to bring a cartoon creation that will help expand the identity for the Loudmoufs’ brand. There’s no official date for this as it is an in-the-works effort that will feature a lot of surprise guests.
QTP: For official business inquiries, how can people get in touch with you?
They can also check out my work on:
Instagram: instagram.com/culture_freedom (Shout out to iNTeLL: U-God’s son.)
QTP: Is there anything else you’d like to add?
C.F.: Yes, I would like to give thanks for everyone who has supported me from day one. I also would like to thank you Queen The Prophet for interviewing me. I also would like to give a shout out to my team The Staten Allstars, & GGO Family. I also enclosed a banner of my artwork I have done for some artists. Peace to the Gods & Earths worldwide; Man, Women, & Child!
OFFICIAL GHETTO GOVT & HELL RAZAH MUSIC, INC DESIGNS BY CLUTURE FREEDOM
QTP: Wingz Up Dr. G!
Dr G: Wingz up and thanks for the love and support .
QTP: For those that don’t know, please introduce yourself, tell them where you’re from and what it is that you do.
Dr G: I am Dr G from u.k manchester been in the game 15 years working as a dj and a street rep for sony music and then for def jam/island for a good friend dj semtex (bbc 1xtra/defjam uk) . but now i am a full time hip hop producer .
QTP: Personally, I am a HUGE fan of your beats as you are well aware … LOL When did you start producing?
Dr G: Thank you and i greatful from the chance for u even to hear them. But yeah started producing 2002 by sitting and watching my homie at the time making beats.At the time i was starting too rap a bit after a about 5 years of djing around country i wanted to do more and never felt like djing was a nuff.So me and my homie formed a crew and started making tracks and putting out small ep’s in my city .People was instreaded because i was kinda already known from the djing and the street work too .But after making a solo album on my own in 2008 i was more into the beats then the rap side of things.lol. I have a very angry loud rap flow so some people love it some hated it . But always got good feback on the beats. At the time myspace was a big site and helpful so i used that to help promote my 2008 release “LAST DAYZ”.
QTP: When did you meet Razah and how did you become involved with Ghetto Govt?
Dr G: Well i did get hell razah on a joint back in the day from my homie St laz (brownsville pottersfield) i was sending laz mad beats in the days of myspace and he was laceimg my beats and sending them back with some dope features too (Agallah/Boot camp click/shazbazz the disicple/Hell razah) that’s how we meet .But a few years after on sound cloud razah hit us on a comment.So i hit him back asking if he was cool with me sending him some jointz over.Some i just made him some fresh shit.Plus lets not forget that when i was young and listening to hiphop hell razah is apart of my youth because i was into any thing wu tang so i never missed a album .
QTP: Who else have you worked with or are you working with right now?
Dr G: I ‘ve worked with a good few .Got some links from st laz he helped me out a lot as far as getting my joints on hot 97 and power 105 plus features. I also produced a joint for shyheim back in 2008 that i on the album last dayz i mention earlier . So ever since then i did joints with likes of Canibus/Inspectah deck/D 12/Hussein fatal/Outlawz/Rap p from queens/Twisted insane/Outterspace/Yukmouth/Kool g rap many more from different states in america. But uk wise i did with some of the best out here inculeding shotty horroh who is a real big rap and battler artists.
QTP: Dr. G, the Ghetto Govt album is mostly produced by you and I think it’s fair to say it’s one of the most anticipated albums of 2014. This album is featuring Hell Razah himself, his artists on Hell Razah Music, Inc. as well as various GGO artists. Are you excited to be the main producer involved with this project?
Dr G: Most def . I am exclusive producer on that joint so yeah i excited. But razah is so underatted if u ask me. He still keep it real with that deep 90’s era of hiphop vibe.And is a great lyricest And he is a man with a good heart too. But people might not see what he is tryin to do with GGO but it covers all side of the world.Due time it will be a take over movement.
QTP: What are you currently working on music and otherwise? Any upcoming projects to watch out for?
Dr G: A producer album similar to what alchemist/maro polo/pete rock does .All american artists my production. The theme is like britton and u.s coming together to form a coalition that’s the name i am calling the album COALITION (Nov 2013 release).Aiming to get some of the biggest names in hip hop on it with a lot of the underground up and coming artists too.
QTP: Is there any artists that you haven’t worked with that you’d like to work with in the near future?
Dr G: Oh fo sho mainly artist that i was listenig too when i was young (Onyx/smif and western/wu tang/black moon/nine. many more )and fan of hip hop .As i am still a fan i still bump mad albums and people must think just because u are artist u can’t be a fanof other hiphop acts .But people need to go back to being fans. But artist i would love to work with would be :Redman /reks/saigon/prodigy/tragedy kadafi/ra the rugged man/Roc Marciano/Beanie Sigel/Ill bill.

Miley Cyrus at MTV VMAs all the rage on Twitter
The pop star’s performance at the award show yielded 4.5 million mentions and 306,100 tweets per minute.
Pop star Miley Cyrus was a hot topic on Twitter following her controversial MTV Video Music Awards performance on Sunday night.
According to new data from Twitter, Miley Cyrus’ performance with Robin Thicke at the VMAs triggered 306,100 tweets per minute. For comparison, Justin Timberlake’s performance during the award show registered nearly 220,000 tweets per minute. Drake’s performance was close behind with 194,500 tweets per minute.
Similarly, Cyrus, who performed in what is being called a “suggestive” way, was mentioned 4.5 million times last night on Twitter. Timberlake and Lady Gaga followed her with 2.9 million mentions and 1.9 million mentions, respectively.
According to Twitter, the data includes only tweets from the East Coast airing of the show. More data points will be released soon including all airings.
Twerking onstage in a furry one-piece, flanked by giant bears – nothing too out of the ordinary for the MTV VMAs, right?
Miley Cyrus took the stage at the 2013 show at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center to flaunt her seriously toned body and renowned dance moves, working the crowd during her performance of “We Can’t Stop.”
She then stuck around, stripping down to a latex bikini gyrating with a foam finger to help out Robin Thicke during his rendition of “Blurred Lines.”
Are you really that surprised?
Hollywood is not all you think it’s cracked up to be Fam. We must exercise compassion but the tolerance for what you allow your own children to be exposed to is your personal job and choice as a parent. In the entertainment industry there is a famous saying ” Any press is good press”. Some of the things you see are entirely staged and the goal is to outrage you. Why? Well as you just read above on Twitter alone, Miley was pulling 306k tweets per minuet. Sometimes these things aren’t staged and there is a much deeper meaning behind what you’re seeing. I’m going to leave that alone …. for now. I encourage all of you to open your eyes and research things for yourself. We live in the age of information and the truth is often right in front of us.
I must have jumped the gun when I said DJ YELLO was going to be the most absurd interview I did on GGO, but I was wrong. I’m going to attempt to interview the President. I say attempt because it’s not as easy as you think to interview people you have a personal relationship with… lol don’t believe me? See DJ Yello’s interview within the blog.

QTP: WE ALSO HAD ONE CHAPTER THAT WAS UNFORTUNATELY CLOSED DUE TO THE CONDUCT OF THE FORMER CHAPTER LEADER. ALTHOUGH WE HAVE KEPT IT QUIET FOR SOMETIME, TRYING TO PROTECT THE PARTY INVOLVED FROM EMBARRASSMENT, THIS INDIVIDUAL INSISTS ON ATTEMPTING TO FALSLEY REPRESENT HIMSELF, SO ARE WE READY TO DISCLOSE WHICH CHAPTER AND CHAPTER LEADER ARE NO LONGER AFFILIATED?
RAZ: I CLOSED THE DETROIT CHAPTER DUE TO CHAOTIC DANGEROUS BUSSINESS MOVES UPLOADING AND SELLING MY MUSIC, SELLING SONGS ON BEATS THAT WERE DESIGNATED FOR GGO PROJECTS BY PRODUCERS, AND LEFT MY LIFE IN DANGER (as Management) FOR IT, THEN CONTINUED TO USE MY LOGOS AND STILL FALSELY REPRESENTS GGO AND MY LABEL.

RAZ: WINGZ UP!
PURCHASE ON ITUNES NOW!
HEAR IT NOW! :
I figure mine as well shake things up today, step on some toes, and most importantly make you THINK. Mirror, mirror on the wall, if you don’t look in it, you shall fall. How does a mirror work? It reflects our image. In essence, a mirror is a smooth surface that reflects most of the light that hits it, with only a minimal amount of light being absorbed. It is essential that the surface is smooth, because light reflecting off of a rough surface would scatter the light, thus no clear image would appear.
After you eat, why do you look in the mirror?
When you’re getting ready, why do you look in the mirror?
Silly questions, right? Mirrors reveal flaws. Fam there is not a single person walking this earth that can say they’re perfect, and if they do? They are a liar.
Your reality is personal. Your reality is created by experiences that have impacted you in your soul and how you perceive them. Sometimes, our perception is off. Let me give you an exsample… Women who have been sexually abused can often become promiscuous. So the young women who are often referred to as hoes, are in all actuality a victim of some traumatizing experience. The outward expression of promiscuity isn’t about sex at all. It’s about control. These women tend to program themselves to believe they don’t care about anything and they’re “goin for theirs” but in all actuality, they are only trying to regain the loss of control and fill a void. So many young men are without the role model of a father or have grown up with a terrible one. These young men outwardly express their anger by being determined not to end up like their fathers and will do so by any means necessary, which in our urban communities nine times out of ten lands them in the kind of trouble that follows them around for the rest of their lives.
Life is not always fair. Bad things happening are not God’s fault. We live in a fallen world. Poor God, he gets blamed for everything bad and people hardly remember all of the good. Good is not defined by an amount of money, the kind of house you live in, or the car you drive. If you woke up and are able to move your limbs, you are blessed. If you woke up and couldn’t move your limbs, but have a roof over your head and clothes on your back you are blessed.
Growing and maturing as spiritual beings requires that we constantly look in the mirror and examine ourselves. You are not supposed to always like what you see and if you never find something wrong? Something is wrong with your vision. Do you ever stop and ask yourself why you react to certain things a certain way? The faster you understand that you will never be perfect and you always will have a part of you to be worked on, the happier you’ll be. We are all imperfect people loved by a perfect God. We can’t control or change other people, we can only control and change ourselves. If something angers you, it CONTROLS YOU. Get a grip on what makes you angry. Look in the mirror. The answers are simple, we make them complicated. Hurting people hurt other people. If someone has scarred you, understand they are scarred and you can’t fix that nor is it your fault. The only thing in those situations you do have control over is getting over it and controlling yourself.
Looking in the mirror is a CONSTANT process & it’s ugly. If you don’t face it tho, you deceive yourself. Haven’t you been lied to enough?
Hurting people hurt other people. That sentence alone can give you the reasons why to a lot of unanswered questions if you let it.
The correct answer is always love, it never fails.
