Marc B Talks Come Up With 21 Savage, Why All DJ's Are Producers Now, Spotify Playlists & More
We linked up with 21 Savage's official DJ, Marc B, for our first interview of 2020. Marc B is one of the most well known DJs in the Atlanta hip hop scene and has been expanding his brand and network as a producer by dropping songs and compilation albums with up & coming rappers like Young Mal, Doe Boy, SG Tip & more.
We talked a lot about the new wave of producers taking the initiative to drop songs on their own own Spotify and Apple Music profiles to have more control over their careers instead of just waiting on getting placements and selling beats.
We also talked why music streaming and Spotify playlist and artists focusing on how to get on Spotify playlists really destroyed the careers and income streams of the average mixtape DJ and in Atlanta it went one step further when the city banned 18 & up clubs making it near impossible for DJ's to break music from up & coming rappers. This made it 100% important to focus on the internet and social media marketing for music promotion.
The interview gets wrapped up by discussing new years resolutions and why it is hard to stick to them unless you make LIFESTYLE CHANGES!

Curtiss King Talks Mental Health, Social Media Addiction, Digital Minimalism & More
Curtiss King pulled up to talk about mental healthhis breakthroughs practicing digital minimalism which helped him overcome social media addiction, depression, and finding the joys of everyday life. Yes he still loves making beats, selling beats online & helping other music producers learn how to sell beats but he is putting a lot of his energy into his regular people stuff.
We all agreed that we love the Gary Vee motivation but it sometimes make us think we aren't doing enough.Curtiss also believes one of the most important tools for producers is talking to a therapist aka cognitive behavioral therapy despite the mental illness stigma in the culture. Certain disorders like social anxiety can hold your career back so it's best to get help with them.
This was a dope episode because we haven't had too many guests on the producergrind podcast that have talked about these mental health type topics. Many followers of his channel look to him as an online life coach or a big bro.
We also talked about Curtiss King's multiple passive income streams, using clickfunnels to sell beats & his thoughts on building a music producer YouTube channel.
