The Verbal Graffiti Podcast Episode #001 – THE INTRODUCTION

The first episode of the Verbal Graffiti Podcast is a short introduction to the show and content. The show will air on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each Month. In this episode we introduce the show, the host and reasons to listen in. We touched on a lot of subject matter that will be covered and expanded upon in future shows. If you were expecting commentary on music then you might be in for a surprise. Yes, music is an important part of the Verbal Graffiti lifestyle, but this podcast is more focused on inspiring the listeners to be a part of our “Gang of Hoodlems” who will read books and follow success formulas to better improve LIFE for everyone who participates. The idea is not that Rick Cruz is some sort of a GURU but rather that he is trying to stick to these life altering routines and he selfishly wants everyone to participate so that he can be held accountable for sticking to the path.

We Announced Da Hood Morning America Wake UP Challenge, Da Hood Book Klub and other Challenges or information that will make the listener think that this Podcast is nothing but a whole lot of work,. And THAT It Is. But, those who participate will experience some amazing, life altering benefits. THAT is a proven fact.

This Month the Hood Book Klub will be reading The Power of Broke by Daymond John, co/written by Daniel Paisner. The books subtitle is equally as interesting as the title stating “How empty pockets, a tight budget and a hunger for success can become your greatest competitive advantage”. The book is $26 at Barnes & Nobel but we found it for $15 on Amazon.com THE POWER OF BROKE on amazon.com We will begin discussing the book on our next episode, but you don’t have to finish the book in that time frame.

We also asked for anyone looking to actively follow along, and become a part of our “Gang of Hoodlems” to grab a yearly planner and a journal to plan out goals and track progress. Here are links to two that we really like:
DAILY/MONTHLY PLANNER on amazon.com
JOURNAL on amazon.com

Lastly please leave a comment here, or contact us via email at [email protected] with any suggestions or comments. Also you can follow us on Facebook Twitter Instagram & YouTube. Until next time friends remember “you are a combination of the 5 people you spend the most time with”. So,..choose your “Gang” wisely.

Survey | Charlotte vs. Atlanta, Who has the better city?

Ever wonder why Charlotte is the most popular up and coming city on the east coast? Take at look at this. It’s a short film explaining how for years, Charlotte and Atlanta have been long time rivalries in the competition for new companies, jobs and young residents. However, the Queen City’s uptown success started with a vision nearly 50 years old. What do you think? Leave a comment let us know your thoughts!

Blog Submissions | BILTMORE RECORDS .COM

Last year 2013 – 2014 our site had over 1 million hits and 150K regularly returning IP addresses in 70 countries worldwide. There was no SEO in place and we did not hit the radio to promote as we did in years past. Those numbers do not always translate across the board onto other social sites, but from our analysis we can see that there is a legitimate following here. So firstly we would like to thank everyone that has been rocking with us thus far.
This year our goal is to increase our market presence through continuous brand building campaigns. We have also picked up a SEO (search engine optimization) company with some social marketing strategies. There are some new potential projects for 2015 to be announced along with the existing, so it will be an interesting year. With the new promotions we would like to get back to doing events. To me this is what hip-hop looks like in 2015.
We would also like to share our audience with other artist and brands. When you’re an independent company you can do that. We know we have a strong presence in NC especially Charlotte so if anyone would like to submit their video or product advertisement for us to help promote we would consider it. You can send submissions to [email protected] I say all that to say this, don’t get discouraged because you may not get a million views on YouTube or a bunch of likes on Facebook etc., that does not mean that you don’t have an audience so keep grinding. #1

NASA | HAND OF GOD Spotted by Space Telescope

NASA’s Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array, or NuSTAR, has imaged this photo of a dense core of a star that blew up in a supernova explosion. It has been Nicknamed the “Hand of God,” One of the big mysteries of this object is whether the pulsar particles are interacting with the material in a specific way to make it look like a hand, or if the material is in fact shaped like a hand. Either way it’s an amazing photo. Read more on NASA.COM.

Technology: Security drones patrolling cities in the near future

If you ever read the book 1984 that coined the phrase “big brother is watching” you would agree that what we could only imagine decades ago is now becoming a reality. Not focusing on the book’s communistic concept but the idea of this kind of technology being used in general civilian area’s for protection is awesome. Cyber Security is a hot topic and drones assisting with physical security within our cities does not sound like a bad thing. Even in Tom Cruse’s recent film Oblivion they depicted drones securing the parameter and making sure that all areas of the planet were secure. The bottom line is this, what we used to see in sci-fi movies like Star Track, StarGate, Star Wars etc. could be reality in the near future.

Bboying | Bboy junior Official New Trailer 2014

‘Bboy junior, real name Bosila Banya, was born in Zaire, central Africa. As a child, he always was on his hands performing tricks to impress friends and family. He moved to france at around the age of 5 and in 1997 saw a tv show about breakdancing that made him realize that was what he wanted to do. Even though Bboy Junior’s leg has polio, he pursued breakdance with dedication and was mentored by Jeff and Rudy. In 2001, he then joined the wanted posse crew that soon gained popularity around the world.

He has since then won many battles and is said by many newbies to be the best breakdancer in the world. On the contrary other bboys say he’s just too repetive or hate on the fact that his legs are lighter than normal making it easier for him.’
