Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I was inspired to create ApisRecords because I had seen first-hand the struggles that both major artists and rising students have in navigating the music industry. My goal is to create “a bridge of resources, connections, and education between artists, executives, and entertainment brands in urban communities around the world.”
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this?
I worked with rapper Travi$ Scott on his “Butterfly Effect” music video. The 2017 hit is now a multi-platinum single in the United States and it also reached double platinum on January 25, 2018. Travis Scott used my gold Lamborghini for his video.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
Never give up and continue to work harder.

Since childhood, I have seen my father struggle however he never gave up. This taught me the same principle in life.

I have used my success by building a bridge of resources, connections, and education between artists, executives, and entertainment brands in urban communities around the world. I also help funds and build a school in Uganda, Africa.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
Never rely on anyone. At one point in life, I had nothing and there was no one there to help not even family.
