What you might not realize, what I think a lot of people don’t know, is that from the get-go, when I started my first job, I was only 12 years old. I was a paper boy. And the way I got the job was really through my entrepreneurial spirit, which is something I got from my mother.
At the time, I wasn’t old enough to work legally, so I made a deal with the paper boys who were leaving for college. I told them to let me deliver their papers and I’d send them half of the money. By the time I was 13, I had six routes.
I say this all to say that before I entered into the business of music, I went to college at Howard University. I didn’t graduate, because I decided to pursue my career in the music industry. But I was given an honorary doctorate from Howard. I went there for business.
I’ve always been businessman first. Even when I pursue my passion in the music industry, I do it from the perspective of an entrepreneur.
