28 Flank Rd

We proudly present to you the ’28 Flank Rd Official Mixtape’ by Star-Frame Music Group, The AlleGentz production team, and DJ BDS. The all original project features lyrics and beats produced, written, recorded, and mastered by Skit Fury and Marlobeatz of The AlleGentz and Star-Frame Music Group. The talented duo has accumulated a total of nineteen (19) tracks for the mixed cd hosted by DJ BDS, with a Deluxe Edition featuring four (4) additional tracks not featured on the Official Mixtape. The Deluxe Edition is available at your favorite digital download store, including iTunes and Amazon.com.

We expect so much in the near future from the Star-Frame empire that the fact that the 28 Flank Rd Official Album already has 20+ prospective tracks does not cease to amaze us. When graced with the presence of DJ BDS and The AlleGentz, it may seem as if there is a never ending work clock hovering over the young men or a battery pack is plugged in their backs with creativity and success being the only nouns programmed to memory.

Example you say?

We can arrive at the 28 Flank Rd headquarters on a Tuesday about 8:30pm and find Skit Fury finishing up a new instrumental favoring an up beat party type of feel with two futuristic cool type beats already completed. Marlobeatz enters after a long day of fieldwork, plays back three beats he created that morning and as a team, the men produce two more beats for their catalog. Testing their creativity and diversity every time. Granted it is now maybe 10:31pm, approaching a studio appointment from a local artist at 11pm, and the eighth completed beat of the day, someone in the room can’t help but express their lyrical creativity. This more than always results in a full song written and instrumental exported for use by Star-Frame Music Group. 11:00pm hits and for two solid hours, The AlleGentz production team goes to work on an all original song for the local artist. They hear the artist’s idea, build a beat, help the artist polish the song layout, export the beat, let the artist choose another beat, record two songs, mix down two songs to near mastered quality, and let the excited artist plan his next move. It’s now 1:00am, the night is far from over. Star-Frame Music Group proceeds with writing a new song and then recording and mixing down the new song just written, in addition to the earlier planned song. After mixing, comes mastering, after mastering, comes another new beat before surfing the web for some social networking and the next thing you know it’s 4:20am. After touching up the now 11th instrumental of the day, The AlleGentz take time to recharge. It’s 5:00am and DJ BDS, meanwhile, takes the steering wheel with track-list planning, mix editing, promotions, and graphic design tasks until the point of ‘crash’ arrives. Let’s say today’s crash time was about 7:00am. 8:00am Marlobeatz is back up and killing time creating beats before hitting the field for another long day of work. By 9:30am DJ BDS is back working on the exact same thing he crashed while creating until Skit Fury returns to the studio with ideas, tasks, and beats to get out his system. The cycle then continues into Wednesday night, Thursday, etc., etc.

This has gone on Day after Day for two years now with the only dramatic changes being a different type of productive adventure. Not to mention, Skit Fury and Marlobeatz are not the only artists gracing the Star-Frame Music Group library. It’s time to get these guys out there!With this post, all we ask is that you take the time to check out why we are so damn excited. Ha Ha! 28 FLANK RD IS HERE!!!

Business vs. Family | ALL FAMILY CAN’T HANDLE BUSINESS.

This seems to always be a reoccurring topic…

It’s a fact that all family can not “handle business” and no man or woman can prove to me different. Before continuing, let’s let the definitions of Family and Business be brought to the table.

FAMILY (noun)

Webstar Definition: 1. a group consisting of parents and children living together in a household. 2. all the descendants of a common ancestor.

PapiiBDS Definition: 1. a group of people related through the same blood line and/or upbringing.

BUSINESS (noun)

Webster Definition: 1. a person’s regular occupation, profession, or trade. 2. the practice of making one’s living by engaging in commerce.

PapiiBDS Definition: 1. a formal organization aimed to be a profession, usually for means of living.

TODAY’S POINT. Nov. 1st, 2013

Accepting Family as Family vs. Accepting Family into the Business sounds like an elaborate discussion, but is not that difficult a topic to me. I mean, family is family. Whether I accept an individual as a family member of mine doesn’t change if the person is by definition already family. It only expresses my personal feelings towards that person. At the end of the day, if your family is disruptive or perfect, it is still a family. I can’t choose who is going to be in my family, GOD makes that decision for me. I’m an asshole to not recognize and accept someone who is definitely family as family. Regardless of any personal vendetta or feelings. Business is a lot more serious when it comes to accepting an individual to represent it. Your business image and credibility is affected by each individual member like the safety of a bus in affected by each individual tire. . . TO BE CONTINUED. . . when I got time to write more.

So I FoUnd More Time To WRiTe. Nov. 2nd, 2013

In business, if one man can fuck up an investors impression of your Business, it’s rare the proper representative  can get a new opportunity to clean up his or her tracks. One would argue that also is the case when representing your Family. But, to that I say, you can choose who handles your Business, not who is technically your Family. Structured families even can control or monitor the rebel of the Family. Other families embrace rebellions with open arms. In your family, I would assume there’s people of all types; the good, the bad, the evil, the gorgeous, and the ugly and some accept others, while some may not accept them all. With the Business, EVERYONE is to act on one accord. Three members of the business shouldn’t have three different answers to what the Business is ultimately about. “WHAT IS THE PURPOSE?!” The Business can run with a set of bylaws. What is a bylaw?

Webster Definition: 1. a rule made by a company or society to control the actions of its members.

PapiiBDS Definition: 1. the shit you just don’t do if you want to survive on the team or in the Business.

In Business, there is always someone who can ‘pull the plug’, set a bylaw, direct/order, or teach. Always. A Family may not always have that luxury. The opportunity of a family’s bloodline ending is identical to the thought of there being no more reproduction of human life on planet earth. Although there’s plenty of situations where a man or woman may feel and be completely alone, in literal terms in regards to the PapiiBDS Definition of Family, we all have Family somewhere here on earth. Does that mean your Family is all equipped and qualified to handle your Business? If so, do you assume they have the same drives as you and have the same understanding of the core purpose of the Business?

NEW YEAR. More thoughts. January 2, 2014

Those questions had to have been rhetorical. It already has been stated that a family consists of “people of all types; the good, the bad, the evil, the gorgeous, and the ugly”. No man intelligent enough to start and operate a successful business can  say all types of people are acceptable business representatives.

My mom always tells me, there’s four (4) types of people.

The whale. – wants to help other people and save the world.
The shark. – wants to win, make money, and is very competitive.
The dolphin. – wants to have fun and is very social.
The Urchin. – wants to analyze everything and hear details before acting.

In the event you choose to incorporate any and all family in your business plans, be smart, gather an understanding of the different types of people, and use them accordingly. If they fail, you fail, you made the poor decision in their placement. Like putting together an enormous puzzle, every piece counts and every piece has it’s perfect spot to be effective. Your puzzle is not complete without every piece simultaneously helping each other create the ‘big picture’. You may argue that in real life there are sacrifices, every ‘piece’ also isn’t always available. So let’s talk chess. The man behind the pieces on the board needs a full understanding of his surroundings at all times. He needs to be able to know the difference between his Knight and his Rook. He needs to know what’s most valuable for his plan in the long run, and remain prepared for any unplanned sacrifices as he proceeds to protect his King (the business) until any opposing obstacle is no longer a issue. Coming back to reality, every man/woman can’t be your accountant but, every man/woman has something they are useful for when they apply themselves. Your pieces, your team, and your family when accepted into your business, are all assets that need the same chore goal to reach success.

Granted you give a family member the opportunity to work for your business, your new recruit process should solidify that family member have a full understanding of the purpose and goals of the business. No different than any other new employee. Also, no different than any other new employee, that family member should maintain corporation standards and bylaws their entire duration of employment. Otherwise, immediate dismissal is in order. Given multiple opportunity, family or not, people tend to abuse the weak and/or kind hearted. Business is business. Handle It.

Happy New Year, by the way.

Let America Be America Again

Let America be America again.
Let it be the dream it used to be.
Let it be the pioneer on the plain
Seeking a home where he himself is free.
(America never was America to me.)
Let America be the dream the dreamers dreamed—
Let it be that great strong land of love
Where never kings connive nor tyrants scheme
That any man be crushed by one above.
(It never was America to me.)
O, let my land be a land where Liberty
Is crowned with no false patriotic wreath,
But opportunity is real, and life is free,
Equality is in the air we breathe.
(There’s never been equality for me,
Nor freedom in this “homeland of the free.”)
Say, who are you that mumbles in the dark?
And who are you that draws your veil across the stars?
I am the poor white, fooled and pushed apart,
I am the Negro bearing slavery’s scars.
I am the red man driven from the land,
I am the immigrant clutching the hope I seek—
And finding only the same old stupid plan
Of dog eat dog, of mighty crush the weak.
I am the young man, full of strength and hope,
Tangled in that ancient endless chain
Of profit, power, gain, of grab the land!
Of grab the gold! Of grab the ways of satisfying need!
Of work the men! Of take the pay!
Of owning everything for one’s own greed!
I am the farmer, bondsman to the soil.
I am the worker sold to the machine.
I am the Negro, servant to you all.
I am the people, humble, hungry, mean—
Hungry yet today despite the dream.
Beaten yet today—O, Pioneers!
I am the man who never got ahead,
The poorest worker bartered through the years.
Yet I’m the one who dreamt our basic dream
In the Old World while still a serf of kings,
Who dreamt a dream so strong, so brave, so true,
That even yet its mighty daring sings
In every brick and stone, in every furrow turned
That’s made America the land it has become.
O, I’m the man who sailed those early seas
In search of what I meant to be my home—
For I’m the one who left dark Ireland’s shore,
And Poland’s plain, and England’s grassy lea,
And torn from Black Africa’s strand I came
To build a “homeland of the free.”
The free?
Who said the free? Not me?
Surely not me? The millions on relief today?
The millions shot down when we strike?
The millions who have nothing for our pay?
For all the dreams we’ve dreamed
And all the songs we’ve sung
And all the hopes we’ve held
And all the flags we’ve hung,
The millions who have nothing for our pay—
Except the dream that’s almost dead today.
O, let America be America again—
The land that never has been yet—
And yet must be—the land where every man is free.
The land that’s mine—the poor man’s, Indian’s, Negro’s, ME—
Who made America,
Whose sweat and blood, whose faith and pain,
Whose hand at the foundry, whose plow in the rain,
Must bring back our mighty dream again.
Sure, call me any ugly name you choose—
The steel of freedom does not stain.
From those who live like leeches on the people’s lives,
We must take back our land again,
America!
O, yes,
I say it plain,
America never was America to me,
And yet I swear this oath—
America will be!
Out of the rack and ruin of our gangster death,
The rape and rot of graft, and stealth, and lies,
We, the people, must redeem
The land, the mines, the plants, the rivers.
The mountains and the endless plain—
All, all the stretch of these great green states—
And make America again!
