Necessarily financially but. Cree nobody my parents who knew that I indoors and not necessarily right yeah. But I did that. Hi as far as I talent wise and in depth of catalog in creative ability to date the closest depth of catalog would be Kanye West's OK I didn't. And same would be Justin Bieber how well policy I was Connie Dunn is he coming off the browsers he are we just get to see more of a glimpse of what the real kind is like. Now houses we lose his well tell you. Just totally seeds they don't stay on the rise because to be manipulated by wanted to master manipulator marketers of the world.

Was you know is one of the one of the has deep count all right you know I love you so. And right off the bat you get right into the usher story and finding him and I'll I love it it's just it's so great tell everybody. Susan a special space man of 3350 peachtree where in the face lived with star 94 there yeah yeah and and and we came in as a kid. Fourteen year old kid. From Chattanooga Tennessee his mother brought a man my brother actually introduced him brought him to our offices if he comes and and gives me a cassette. That's how long ago was right if you could search with the music tracks that he's going to sing along to liquidity and press play its assault caught end of the road. Now the irony is that in the road was written and produced by myself and my partner baby faced cash something in us or you're clever. He gets downsized sing the song to stop stop. That's good to stop I got to go some girls. You can't just seeing this from me right in my mind ousting was just too good I didn't tell him that Kansas it stopped right I'd feel the office of with the girls. And he kicks into it again right on this time he drops down on one knee. And he starts to charm the most beautiful girl in the room. Head tasty fourteenth and he was so good that it is almost like we're back personal. I don't know she's the most beautiful oil why you seducing her why you charming her finish is his mom in around his mom and were okay. And he's a pro he's looking better. And he seems to he puts his hand aren't they amendment two does he did too good at this like. What's happening around Brad Wright anti anyway he does he does this great audition. And I we signed him at fourteen years old in that moment and that gang that today. You want to mom was with him so we have parental consent you can't sign a minor threat Larry you have to have parental consent has to go to court. You know but we got our we got a sure performed on that day. That is true beauty of that is that Justin Bieber. Russia brings Justin Bieber to me and he's fourteen. Train right and same charm same Sean anger around different different color regardless I actually have. A story as you are telling that usher story I remember the first time I met Justin Bieber was win usher. Right and I was standing off to the side without should do we we know him pretty lucky these live from Atlanta Indiana or around bunch so I would stand and offer to the side with him and Justin was down the hall or something and all of a sudden we hear in this is Justin had no songs outright. Why I had no idea that we hear a girl singing his songs. Down the hall we go around the corner and there's just in in a group of girls in their policy in his son together and they've come to see him. January was her singing along and usher his alma media's. Told you. Yeah oh I know those girls are noticing him on huge Syverson yeah right they are new and his incredible. So is it in that first moment you know if the Starr has that quality if they've got that's. Are what I know is the first moments are if I like it. Can now are they going to be a big star trust me not everybody has scientists are from a big star I very wrong many many times by the and that's not to minimize the truth which is under write many many times right but so I only know what I like in those moments that. When someone walks then I snow how I feel about it right again you know to me music can artistry is like. It's kind of like romantic a little bit so I have to has some level fall in love. Right passes strikes that chord in the end it is an eleven when that happens when is the last time a music major crimes. Cry cry cry cry correct your question was it music. I'm trying to think I'm not a crier put I can rumors. He was one of those deals that didn't go so well one of the artist you sign it was a great night and where does that then we see another song is there's a wait until the last time I. I think grammys this past grammys when Mike would make a trainer won best new artist and she got onstage. And and she's crying. As she sold susteren she's so happy and it made me cry daddy yeah. And Jamie hurt you or dare I assume I was there big cut and TV they cut to her dad in the I had Brian. And I was tightened that that got me yes and I am glad that was the last time but it was sizzling and the tears of joy just so happy for her yeah you gotta tell her I'd next week to call us is. I think her song comes out or Nissan is coming out today our show stars. For the dough month cemeteries summed that. Do you wanna be on board for the slot. Oh we I am so I'm knocking I want I'm not gonna hybrids not what I do I'm not a great salesman or anything but let me tell you this news great. I tanked. Gary Jules well and I know who'd you. Said no to you visited sorry no no no no I didn't say no to anybody where do you get that at a book and I say no I sit yes. And then that's enough. I hang and that was Lady Gaga. Yeah well you have anything happens. So he said yes and then know how to on how you get the ball you righted the three point line and shoot and you miss I miss. Gave what was the F first interaction with her after. You pass honor and and she blew you remember that OK so I gotta get the story straight guy signs her right can I let her grow OK and different than passing guy I signs are that's just this weird timing and just get the credit for signing her yes yes. I need my help me out a little earnings guidance OK then our jobs there and right huge mistake yeah. One of the dumbest thing I've ever done in my life you know I probably won't make that same mistake again cash the first summer sorrow is that won an award shows I can't remember exactly maybe you billboard awards. Those a couple of years later. And she gave me your biggest as he held me held me tight thank a couple of minutes right now minutes where four new nice moment gas and and knew everything was OK okay. Jim whisper in year like that line from pretty woman where issues like big mistake. It is day you know walk away choose colada I keep telling everybody I made the mistake largely because I don't want her to sell them is to say OK I know right. Does he give you liken uncomfortably long and half. Or was it like a good hug like OK I know everything's going to be gang. It was everything is going to be good then SR this year the grammys. And I don't think she moves me. I'm actually looked at me in the right through me she gave me aside had that you mean nothing notepad that time or like OK that's uncomfortable. You know we talked retirement Justin Bieber and ended girls who knew him through YouTube. What's YouTube doing and and services like that what's that do into that music industry. What served us well yeah right it's served us well in the platforms agrees okay. Saves us a lot of time and money from being honest right OK because artists can put to music revenue could find that a they have something or not stray. And so it's kind of good I still go my gut that I don't care about any of it until you tell you the truth like I care about when you come into my office and how I feel about you wanted to press play how it sounds to me okay all right and I don't really care about anything else. But it's nice to have the tools it's nice to know that the tools exist and we need them to concern to them bright enough I live I live by my gut. Have you ever hope I keep my job fled many years and everybody in my gut because technologies is running so quickly that this probably some. Algorithm beckon like science to Parse. The secret is like some of my computer understanding desert but I guess I we'll adjust my guess yeah I think having a go at that if your instincts got a new through everything you've done I'm just. I just does this hope to robot that doesn't take our jobs right Soledad yeah I. Yes I'm curious if you've ever assign an artist and had to sit down with them and have a heart to heart and be like. You're messing up and you like yank them by the collar and set him straight again. I don't really get into their personal lives I don't know I'm I am I will be very honest with you. I am capitalists. Of the worst kind of what I like car hit records and stars right so mark Thomas is all about. Hidden records and how to become a star and whatever you do all your off time it came my business I don't get into it I can't. I am I'm a father I have to get into that my own children and I don't have time to do for someone else's children honestly if they asked my advice I give them my advice right. I try to sign of well meaning I try to signed. You know it's also character based. Pray that commercial like someone's a bad seeds and then just won't do it. Even if I like to music you know so but but I'm not a good I'm not a good surrogate dad died. You know I've just now and I'm sure I'm assigned over the sell some records that sell some records right. Show up dude jabbed his yeah go on stage to be incredible. You know go to radio station and charmed everybody's socks off that's that's my advice right regularly come here and do you know I gave that's my advice. Her got encrypt and a half we did then into may and actually vote yeah like okay. You do that way that I didn't you sayings there's sure you send to puffy camp. Oh that was sent thousands of flavored count for causes clearer every. He has so much flavor like you so flyer I am in his ego is so much fashion sense of party man and dancing and and just being charismatic. And then. Cultural meaning people follow him Rite Aid to trend setter so I met him early on in and before he was Diddy OK very very and you still puffy was in the room puffed daddy eighties puffy. And the ascent crusher. What he liked him a lot he came to my office and I've played in the video that we had a ushers spears first video and said I want you know what this guy. And he took us into New York. Let me just say it like that I was listening to New York is fourteen. I have had a seriously my body language as a model as mom and she she consented and we since into New York. And W as they just want to know why why you should Wear my childhood. I'm very western new York and good. Morning red and got a lot out of all of the above is still for instance that. Tennis cynical I get an imagine have been puffy is a mentor. Do you could have reminded him of the seduction of the lady in your office and said look son your child and was gone long before an off. Yeah I'm not thinking you have to bring it doesn't Guerrero was gone long before okay here in New York City that's the truth is so they let us like the new Hollywood right there filming a. As TV and movies here and everything else. And there's a group called Georgia music partners putting together some of the same tax in tennis for the music industry that they already have in place for TVM down. CDs think if all flag got under way that Atlanta would become the hotbed for music again hit the stillness in the heyday never stopped. We don't feel like okay. Oh and have first trust me when I tell you it never stops. Now it's always been it's always been urban first. In Atlanta Greg you know company and popular music you like the one assist popular like pop music. Right there were there was an indigo girls there were others here but. It became famous for the urban music scene right and it's still all I hear yeah. This nonsense in never stopped. It's pretty remarkable. They never stopped. I mean. Justin Bieber comes from Toronto but he got his music and his star everything haven't been imagining India example right he's one example of it are we have an artist named future I'm you know we know we yeah you know he's off for a year he'll ramble on albums in seven months six months. Amy and he's from here you know and so many of the records are still made here and some creative producers and studios. This is a crazy scene and now you add in film and television. Oh my god maybe a comeback movie yeah. Out here I don't whirlwind tour with sang to me Quinn yeah I am I dug it get to that in your head yes or no safe time to go look at some real stay lawyer here. But I was not I'm cool on the house saying you know I just you know I don't I need to. You need to sell this book. I really do I just need very bright understand like this is the greatest book probably since the de Vinci code here. And Heston has some great stories and there's and but it's really inspirational I think what you know when I hear people talk about it. They just talk about like not mean necessarily enough my story with the artist but more of the either underlying message. Of you can make it if you try. For the overarching message Tommy One of the gang of boys really one of those. I came from Cincinnati Ohio and from humble beginnings and I had a vision and dream and I made my dream come true and so can you. And that's what this book is really all about. What I love about this book in the beginning is you said to your sister or something when you were very young yeah you visualize. All of this and do it and I think everybody. Can learn from that and applied to their own lives German word right now going into the office today are going ended a you know a job maybe like we don't like. He can really visualize your own success and in the market says you told your sister. When you're when I was very young maybe eight or nine years and I now know what I'm gonna do it's one. Not called she's that's so cute yeah. Section in my mind is are you really don't understand like I really mean that. But it just came out of my mouth and I didn't know why. I really didn't know why and it really did and then and I haven't accomplished the goal the way I lied to a conference ago you know. Rich these days like it's a whole other thing is that I mean. I don't know what you don't know. I don't know look instead we did. They're told there was no FaceBook well and if so chat well great fish Microsoft welfare and apple well they you know well read there was zero leg he was the only corner store you know. Oh so you know I have to. Have to redefine what it means in my life but. Are you doing all right coming your OK okay yeah yeah who called dragon and there. White guys. What story in the in the book. Require need to make the most uncomfortable phone call before I went to print. I didn't call anybody I does that surprise not tried to sanitize the book once I wrote it occurred to sanitize it and and before they want to print OK so anything that felt uncomfortable with the just kind of left don't editing floor because he wasn't designed to be disparaging brain drain out I don't wanna hurt anyone's feelings I don't want anyone upset. I've hit some speed bumps is the book come out yet as anybody called you and men like hey I haven't a couple of costly about a couple of Larry tell us simply not enough famous people.

OK now right now how to get there okay do justice Garnett ray and that means everything to me I am fascinated by successful people. I'm fascinated by all people. And happy people you know I think happy might be more attractive and successful honestly. Do you feel like every successful person you never Matt is a risk taker. As some level yes but some do get lucky. There is such thing as a good look quite right place at the right time and yet everything just kind of works out for you and boom. Without some people that are really like financially well off there aren't that bright. Yeah yeah they just sell something people want and they sold the tomb of the solid they don't know anything else about anything. You know I but they they're financially successful big guy invented this now here's something to bathrobes turnaround backwards. And I put it on TV sold millions now Jillian asks. The heat and you know the he can help us a global warming you know.

And I'm committed to that number come back to see you guys and I'm happy to be on your show Karen and I rarely did not having Rihanna show having to be the first person on this birdies yes. So let's finally got its doesn't do something groundbreaking in my life laughter. Show I know lay and how do you feel about sitting there is this a comfortable room do you feel comfortable thirty Charlie killing her comfortable you don't feel interrogated to that was under the interrogators OK because were sitting across from you kind interrogating me yeah. This gold here.

Seattle has thus my cousins I may begin my little bad here and we could natural light we can. Yes I have natural light and here you know we can we do a brain doesn't plan to implant. Harry comes in here she's gonna show you you know I can't sit on their rationalize because. I don't look as pretty and make of this and look as good so you just have to be cognizant of yeah idiosyncrasies of the superstar. So that's right now eight week we have an idea because you're our first guest affects and we wanted to do some because we will have both been a different radio stations and within we have. Lamented. That we did not have one consistent thing that every guest we ever encountered. Interviewed or was a part of our show do so we're gonna start that we have an idea okay. I hope it's okay because it's really the only thing we prepared. OK okay from the bizarre journey and partying with you because here's a thought if he did chances are if you come in this room and you're sitting at sharing your talking on a radio show your creative person. So rather than just take a picture or I'd have you know people side by tens or whatever what we did is we box. A book of sketch paper. And an arts and crafts cat and we would like to give every guest. The sketch paper in the arts and crafts kits to do whatever they want wins take as long can be something you to sign an autograph. They can write a favorite song lyric can do it all off picture they can do whatever they want. But we thought that would be different and refreshing and exciting. How do you think this superstars you deal with the. Feel about that. I think you're right. And the people who. I work with our creatives most of them are like sketches and painters perfect. Now that I think so why is the first one the sketch folksonomy ass over tea Booker brilliant awesome c'mon I love I'm not.
