Damizza Offers Controversial Memoir About Music Industry For Free


Damizza Offers Controversial Memoir About Music Industry For Free

Courtesy 2SPR.

Los Angeles, CA (Dec 2011) - His name is Damion “Damizza” Young. You may not have heard of him but you may have heard of some careers he launched, such as Eminem & Jay-Z. Or of careers he revived, such as Snoop Dogg & Mariah Carey. After being in the music industry for more than 25 years Damizza is ready to share how his music skills brought artists to life, and how those same skills almost took his own life.

Damizza has worked in nearly every area in music but he is most recognized as a producer for hits such as “Crybaby” and “I Still Believe” by Mariah Carey. He has also produced for other renown artists such as Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, and even Korn! But all this success came with a price. His substance addictions caused his life to spin out of control.

The book is filled with candid stories, one of the most compelling is, how he managed to have Snoop Dogg perform in NY with Jay-Z just three months after Biggie’s death in hopes of squashing the East Coast/West Coast beef. Because of this, Irv Gotti credits Damizza as the person who “built a bridge” in bringing the East and West together. Some of the other intriguing stories are; his time backstage with Michael Jackson in Korea, his conversation with Biggie just hours before the star was shot, and how he single-handedly convinced Snoop and Dre to agree to “The Chronic 2001”.

The book has also led to subsequent legal issues due to a tabloid uproar concerning his romantic relationship with Mariah Carey, which was never his intent. Since then, Mariah has read the chapter that involves her and told Damion that, “she doesn’t have a problem with it.”

When asked why he felt this book was important, Damizza had this to say, “I want people to understand the truth of what they’re getting into when they’re seduced by the excess of this business. I’ve been blessed to be in the room when some of the biggest decisions in music were made, and I believe that it’s my duty to pass these stories along. What means the most for me is to show the human reality of the music business.”

Damizza also announced that he is offering the book free of charge, in order to disprove allegations that he’s doing this for profit. It is co-written by world-renown author J. Marshall Craig and will be available on December 14th through www.DamizzaBook.com .

Caspa Narkz and BBA give a shout out to all the sexy moms better known as "MILFs." Not everyone is a MILF. There are certain criteria that a woman must meet. You know, the usual suspects: pretty face, thin waist, and a booty that brings out the Devil in every man. If you don't know what a MILF is, then we'll give you a clue in this video. If you can't figure it out by the end of it, you'd best get Google-happy.

Press Release: First Dirt x Nay the Producer


Press Release: First Dirt x Nay the Producer

I like working with Nay because I can be myself.  She brings out the things in me I tend to hide. - Timothy Rhyme

Set for immediate release.

Nay The Producer releases her 1st project titled "Long Way From Home" Hosted by Miss Special.  Download her FREE mixtape and stay updated with all the latest news & music on Nay The Producer at www.naytheproducer.com .

"The producer is the point guard of the music business.  Like a point guard, the producer has to make connections to ensure the track sounds right (the pass), set up things that aren't there by creating beats and arranging melodies for artists to rock with (the drive), and the producer has to be on their grind facilitating, promoting, and running their business (running plays). It's rare that a producer can put together all the talent available in their circle just as it is rare that you get a GREAT point guard."

Nay molded a project by taking her inner circle, life, and passion then melting them together to create a final masterpiece.  With features from The Kid Rated R, Timothy Rhyme, Rymo, Barnone, Mr. Ej Jones, Jeff K., Noah-O, Just Visionz & many more. The creative concepts packed like luggage in the overhead bin, your only option is to download the mixtape if you want to experience the trip. This project is something very rare to be birthed in today's world, something that your ears have been yearning for, Real Music!  Nay is definitely a Long Way From Home and a short way from greatness.  - Too Fast!

Big thanks to Miss Special for being apart of this project and hosting, you can check her out on Special Sundays Radio Show every Sunday from 2pm-4pm on KSFS http://specialsundays.com/ .

This project is dedicated to Margo E. (RIP Mom).
