Hate books? This quotes for you courtesy of my mans and em DMX:
Tommy 'Buns' Bundy: Come on with the bullshit, man. You think another motherfucker know what you need to do? Ain't no purpose, dawg. It's money. We born to fucking die, man. In the meantime, get money. Fuck a book, man. Sincere: Yo, when's the last time you read anything, man? Tommy 'Buns' Bundy: Never, motherfucker.
My homie Tenielle from Boys & Clothes sent some notes on it, just to make this whole process easy for you:
It was good. Better on audiobook. Here's some of my spoilers.
Belief is a brilliant strategy.
Its Good To Be King - Marketing
Stability is an illusion.
Making A Ruckus - Change
Great leaders empower movements by inspiring the tribe to communicate.
Tribes aren't about "stuff" they're about connection.
Leading From The Bottom
Good enough isn't good enough, try being great. The difference between average and mediocre.
Defending mediocrity is exhausting.
An individual artist needs only 1000 true fans in their tribe.
What they demand is generosity and bravery.
Everyday it becomes simpler to choose to tighten the relationships with the people who choose to follow you.
Initiative = Happiness
You have everything you need to build something far bigger than yourself. The people around you notice this and they're ready to follow if you're ready to lead.
The Peter Principle
Fear of failure is overrated.
The Cult of The Heretics
Great leaders focus on the tribe and only the tribe.
Great leaders don't want the attention, they use it. They use it to unite the tribe and reinforce its sense of purpose.
Its uncomfortable to resist the urge to settle.
Leadership is a choice. Its the choice to not do nothing.
Leaning in or backing off but not doing nothing.
Great leaders don't try to please everyone. Great leaders don't water down their message to make their tribe bigger.
Without faith its suicidal to be a leader.
Leadership requires always acting like the underdog.
Leaders cause the events that others have to react to.
The Difference Between Things That Happen To You And Things You Do
XXLMag.com: How does a nice R&B singer such as yourself end up on an independent rap label like Asylum?
Slim: Shouts to Shakir Stewart [Senior Vice President of Def Jam], you know we’re boys. He was like, “I get your music.” I’ve been in the major system for so long, it was just becoming monotonous. I want to do something my way, my own imprint. He made the phone call to Joie, Joie sent Sickamore to Atlanta to hear the music. You should have seen this whole episode. I’m driving up, Sickamore stands out in front of the spot, he sits in the back of the car and says, “Play me some music.” I play the first record, and the first record must have got him. He is trying his best in the car like “Okay, go to the next one.” Next song was “So Fly.” He has his brim over the eyes, “Could you go back to the first one, okay.” Then he goes back inside to get the CD. He must have played it for the people he had inside. He comes back, and says “Come up.”
That sounds like some secretive stuff going on. Some Mafia type stuff? When we go inside he had his whole street team. He was like “Your music really sounds good.” So that’s how things got started. I didn’t really want to do a solo project, but I did want to start my own label. Everybody knows that I have a distinctive sound, working with 112. To get the ball rolling it’s easy, so that’s why I came with Love’s Crazy. But I have other projects coming. I’m working with Faith. I am working with a nineteen-year-old rapping sensation, Diesel aka Fresh money. I have my group Ivy League. I am doing an album with 8Ball of 8Ball & MJG; we call it Fatboy Slim: The movie. We are bringing the best worlds of both worlds, Memphis and Atlanta. We are coming together.
