It's All about your grind....Not the hustle
I was reading a article about a family that earned 1 million dollars recycling cans. because of this article, I had an epiphany and had to share it with you: ITS ALL ABOUT YOUR GRIND NOT THE HUSTLE. You can pick any profession or career field and your success strongly depends on how hard you work or "grind". Whether you do music, sell CDs or work from home, YOU CAN BE A SUCCESS STORY. You simply have to have a desire and passion to work hard as if your life depends on it, and indeed it does! There is no relax time when you haven't achieved your goals yet. Live your purpose and use all your time wisely, work SUPER hard a whatever it is you do and you will succeed.

Sosa was the boss...People forget that.
Everyone Who loves Scarface loves Al Pacino's depiction of Tony Montana. Most people forget that Alejandro Sosa was the REAL boss. Had it not been for Sosa, Tony would have not climbed to the top, and just like a boss when Tony didn't abide by the rules Sosa swiftly eliminated him. I guess the moral is never bite the hand that feeds you or alow your ego to make you think you are invincible. Tony Violated the rules of the game severely and succumbed to the same game he was once King of...Just my 2 cents. Check out my new beat "Sosa's Empire" it should be the new Scarface theme.

Joey Cutless: The secret to success: GO GRIND!!!!
The secret to success is hard work! REALLY...Stay on your grind and stay focused and success will find you. Meditation helps as well. Go to a quit place alone and focus: meditate on your goals and how to accomplish them. The inner self wants to succeed and will keep you motivated if you stay in touch with yourself. Sometimes we get off-track or on the wrong path and need to just stop, step back and rediscover self. I've been through things that I thought would destroy me but I am still here and more driven than ever. Don't let circumstances control your journey in life, control the circumstances! NOTHING can stop an Idea backed by DETERMINATION. All the people you see like Oprah, Jay-z, Will Smith, these people aren't just lucky they were determined, focused and understood the true secret to success. Anything you conceive in your mind you CAN achieve. SO GET STARTED TODAY! Whats your idea? what are your goals? find the answer then GO GET IT!!!!

Atlanta Super Producer Joey Cutless visits youth center Elementz
“Amazing talent in Cincinnati!”

That was an exact quote by Joey Cutless on his recent visit to Cincinnati’s youth center Elementz: a place for Hip-Hop and respect.

Everybody’s Media Group (EMG) sponsored this event in collaboration with Indie by Choice and Elementz. EMG’s own Robert Oliver introduced Cutless to the crowd while Mercedes Brown, from Indie by Choice, led the interview at Elementz.

The room, full of young members, was treated to some very useful insights and many helpful tips.

The Super Producer, with more than 1,500 credits from anything of TV reality shows, film and well-known artists, spent time talking about his life and business experiences and advised the youth “to be prepared for the corporate world, protect your craft and look for all opportunities to give your music exposure, including TV, film and even the gaming industry”.

“The industry will continue to change, be creative about making opportunities and use social-media sites, like Indie by Choice, to the fullest,” said Cutless.

“No serious corporation would even consider doing business with you, if you’re not prepared”, he continued, “taking care of things like copyright are basic but very critical,” he said.

Cutless said he would have benefited from a youth center like Elementz, and the protective artist-oriented services that EMG offers, when he was growing up.

“I would’ve been a big as Michael Jackson was,” he jokingly added.

After the interview by Brown, Cutless continued to interact with the members and also created a track to demonstrate some of his methods.

Several members brought their own beats which they were pleased to share. He complimented the youth on their willingness to be critiqued: “it shows their talent, maturity and will-power to move forward in this difficult industry.”

“I’m convinced that with the help from Elementz and EMG, the talent will get the opportunities they deserve,” he said.

In fact, Cutless was so impressed by the young talent in Cincinnati that he’s currently in talks with EMG to discuss several new projects.

“Having the honor and opportunity to work with a super producer like Joey will tremendously help the talent in Cincinnati and create a powerful movement in the artist community,” said EMG’s Founding Member Robert Oliver.

Don't let technology ruin your music!
Technology can be a great tool in creating music. Never before have independent artist and hobbyist had so many powerful tools in reach. With the advantages of Pc recording etc there are also disadvantages that you should avoid.

1. CUTTING AND PASTING CHORUSES TOO OFTEN-
Just because you can cut and paste a chorus doesn't mean you always should. It can sound very mechanical that each chorus sounds exactly the same. It may sound great but it doesn't work for every song. The subconscious mind can hear the mechanical like perfections and it will make your song boring if you don't know what you are doing.

2. AUTOTUNE/MELODYNE
You already know....These software were intended for pitch correction etc. Not to be used as a vocal effect on every song you record. its cool sometimes but please don't over do it. Its noticeable.

3. NO SWING-
If you compose music you should add some swing to your compositions even if its minor. listen to your ears and see what sounds good. Swing humanizes your digital creations and make them more appealing to the subconscious mind of you listener. WARNINGbig grin :DO NOT OVERDO THIS! You want it to sound natural, not like your drums are drunk.

4. Have fun!
don't get caught up in the software race....do what you do best...Create!

Truest Blood (Tha Sigil) NEW
Vampires are mythological or folkloric beings who subsist by feeding on the life essence (generally in the form of blood) of living creatures, regardless of whether they are undead or a living person. Although vampire entities have been recorded in many cultures and in spite of speculation by literary historian Brian Frost that the "belief in vampires and bloodsucking demons is as old as man himself", and may go back to "prehistoric times"
- WIKIPEDIA

I made this beat after watching True blood and decided that would be the theme...CHeck it out and tell me what you think!

Charlie Chaplin 2 by Joey Cutless
Sir Charles Spencer Chaplin, KBE (16 April 1889 – 25 December 1977), known as Charlie Chaplin, was an English comic actor, film director and composer of the silent film era.[2] He became one of the best-known film stars in the world before the end of the First World War. Chaplin used mime, slapstick and other visual comedy routines, and continued well into the era of the talkies, though his films decreased in frequency from the end of the 1920s. His most famous role was that of The Tramp, which he first played in the Keystone comedy Kid Auto Races at Venice in 1914.[3] From the April 1914 one-reeler Twenty Minutes of Love onwards he was writing and directing most of his films, by 1916 he was also producing them, and from 1918 he was even composing the music for them.

---Wikipedia.com

I made this beat for some strange reason with Charlie Chaplin in mind. I think you will like it alot. Its not a super crunk anthem just a Jazzy lil beat I made...Peace out and have a great weekend.

Joey Cutless Interview w/ Hiphop.org !!!! visit the site for full ver
Joey sitting in front of his pro-tools rig at his home studio in Macon, Ga while auditioning the “Get em got em” Remix featuring CTE/def jam recording artist Blood Raw, Grand Hustle/Atlantic artist Da Great Yola, and M.I.M’s, of capital records. “I love it when my beats are used and an artist really shines on on my track, it’s a good feeling!” Joey has lots of projects ahead including more work on “The Oprah Winfrey Show”, MTV’s “Cribs”, “Super sweet 16”, “All eyez on”, “the real life”, and numerous other television projects while taking a stab at landing the next hit for a major label/artist…...

Tell our readers, where your from.. All over…Grew up in Warner Robins, Ga. Later I moved to the United Kingdom and really learned the craft.

Where did your name originate from? I was originally “Young Cutless” but My name is Joey so I dropped the “Young”. I Love the Olds Cutlass and had an SL, so that got me the nickname because I was riding so clean cats would be like “SUP CUTLASS”, I just changed the spelling.

What is a typical day like for you? A typical day consists of finding more placement opportunities in film and TV, marketing Joeycutless.com, and being in the studio working on new projects.




Follow Joey Cutless:


Other then music what do you do to make that paper? That’s it…I’m a producer I accepted that years ago and just work on my craft non-stop. I also publish a few blogs.

When did you first become introduced to hip-hop? NWA…I knew this is what I wanted from a really young age. When I was 5 or 6 My brother had a lot of LP’s, I actually still have them. I would sneak and listen while he was at work. Eventually at around 8, I started writing rhymes.

Coming up who were your influences in music? N.W.A. ICE-T, Bone Thugs, Outkast, Wu-tang, Nas, All the greats. Production-wise, DJ Toomp, Traxter, and Organized Noise.

What artists/people in your life intrigued you to get into the business? When I saw Pastor Troy sell 100k CDs independently from a home-made album in 98-99… I was sold. He was someone I actually knew doing music, and so go to the next level. I was amazed by his success. I used to open up for Ludacris when he was still “Chris Luva luva” as well, seeing real people succeed made this dream tangible and real. I also mentored under the world famous a Rock musician Joey Stuckey when I was 15. He taught me the Business.

How would you describe your style? I really consider it a type of Stealth-Mode. Very subliminal, and magical at the same time. I utilize a lot of special techniques to keep things interesting and fresh.

What artists are you currently working with? Currently I’m working mostly on my Film and Television Catalog for more placements on popular shows on networks like MTV, VH1, Bravo, VH1, E!, and the other majors..As far as artists I’m working on some high profile projects I can’t name at the moment…but you will see!

Who would you enjoy to work with? OUTKAST, Lol…I would like to get in the studio with Tech N9NE… Lil Wayne, his work ethic is crazy. Outside of hip-hop, Lady Gaga, & Katy Perry I’m big into producing pop music as well.

Tell us about your current projects? A lot of film and TV… Also signing other artists to my publishing company and branching out more into other genres. Also I’m doing things as far as mentoring up and coming artists. I will be speaking and mentoring at the “Hip-Hop Elementz” workshops In Ohio soon as well as other events.

What would you say makes you different than the average recording artist... Relentless work ethic…As well as Over 2000 placements in film and TV as well as billboard charting production credits.

What's currently in your CD/MP3 player? Tech N9NE, Drake, and “The Black Album” by Jay-z, Majority Rulez, and a new artists named Taj Mahal…he’s really dope

What’s your formula, how do you come up with the concepts for
