July 15, 2014 i was teaching music production classes & math to summer school kids, i met this bad ass middle school kid by the name of Tavon, who would not leave my class of 30 plus kids that i didn’t want but BCPS just dropped them off to me cause everybody wanted to do music and heard i was the cool teacher, anyways, Tavon was bad as shit but he showed sooo much interested in music production and i felt like he was one of my favorite students even tho he got on my nerves everyday 😂, this pic up top is the day i brought my big bro @nokioticiscoming of @druhill4real
to talk to the class & inspire them and honestly they was bad as shit the whole time 😂😂 but when Nokio started talking money and the music business the whole class listened, Tavon showed interest nonstop to me that he wanted to come to the studio, even after summer school was over, he called me nonstop for years and eventually i invited him and his family to the first version of Dream 1st studios, he loved it and kept asking when he could come back, he never stop hitting me, i figured he grow up one day and just don’t care about doing music no more but he became sooo focused, he started doing sessions in the basement, doing internships at other studios, learning film and photography, he started making money on his own, he reminded me of myself, a kid with a hustle mentality trapped in the hood trying to find his calling, i started to respect his hustle, fast forward to August 2020, he started a internship with @dream1st
back in July, he actually was the first person to respond to me looking for interns literally seconds after i posted it, now he has been a super blessing to the studio, he literally has held us down and done more than I’ve expected of any intern i ever had, matter fact he has done more than some of my employees honestly, he has shown he is trustworthy and a leader not a follower and i am proud to announce today that @producer_chubz
is officially working at Dream 1st Studios & my goal for him next month is to make more money a month than i did when i was his teacher, i know he can do it, i am sooo proud of him, y’all go follow him now & comment congrats on this pic!! Let’s go Chubz!!
