Explained: Why New York has emerged the epicenter of the US’s COVID-19 outbreak
"York is suffering more drastically than any other state. By far as of right now there has been tragically. Three hundred sixty thousand confirmed cases of coronavirus virus in New York and over twenty three thousand deaths by the time. I am recording this. That is in a state of nineteen million people. Now let's do some compare and contrast in Florida a state of over twenty one million people and a large a large elderly population. There has been only about fifty thousand confirmed cases in only about twenty two hundred deaths so twenty to one hundred deaths in Florida versus over twenty three thousand deaths in the state of New York and Florida is more populous and Texas state with twenty nine million people has had about fifty four thousand cases with only about fifteen hundred deaths again. Fifteen hundred deaths versus twenty three thousand deaths in New York and these states have also had much less restrictive lockdowns. Now there is no doubt that New York is different. It is more densely populated a lot more public transportation. That's much more used than in places like Florida and New York are places like Florida and taxes And I especially true of course in in New York City where most of its cases are but cannot really be the only reason it couldn't possibly be that maybe leadership has fumbled that. Maybe they haven't done as good of a job as the media has said that they are doing. So let's review some facts about Cuomo state and examine. Why possibly they have run into so much trouble. We've talked about this in the past. It bears repeating so the state of New York was facing a budget crisis before all of this happened back in November. The New York Post reported that New York face a six point one billion hole in their budget for this year and Cuomo's planning on making cuts to Medicaid rates for hospitals and nursing homes. They fail to present a real plan. Criticized Dave Free Del of the Citizens Budget Commission. A fiscal watchdog group. They've known about this for a long time but the plan they did present is really one part. Gimmick he added his analysis shows. The state was already in trouble after pushing off a one point. Seven BILLION DOLLAR MEDICAID BILL IN MARCH Two thousand nineteen into Into two thousand twenty which grew into the four billion dollars according to an article in the nation. A left-wing commentary magazine. Obviously I don't agree with a lot of what they write but they can be pretty good at holding Democrats accountable. This is an article by Ross Bark. Entitled Cuomo Helped Get New York into this mess. Governor Cuomo has long mismanaged the budget and the Medicaid Program program in the state and has reduced the size of hospitals. Here's some excerpts from the article in which he argues that some of the budgetary abyss has been the CUOMO administration's own making postponing Medicaid payments and failing in the past iron out inefficiencies. Like the state's pain Medicaid costs for relatively wealthy. Private hospitals are relatively wealthy private hospitals. That don't need the aid in the first place. What's more this has lost. More than twenty thousand hospital beds over the last twenty years Cuomo who has governed for almost half that period CUOMO has governed since two thousand eleven. Never advocated for any kind of expansion of hospital beds until last month he now says New York needs one hundred. Ten thousand says this is a couple months ago more than double the current capacity. He has never been a forceful advocate for keeping hospitals open in fact he is empowered bureaucrats who have argued aggressively to shudder them in two thousand.

"So you have to have those conversations, and you have to grow and is getting skin to that point. Because we have to scale to a point where you know, we have less family and more, you know, more people. That's that's come in to try to pour that fuel on the fire. And do you look now, I mean, I know it's part of the part of the principles is keeping the blinders on for your own creativity. Do you have external things that you look at for inspiration or their their specific fields artists are people either store clear now that everyone everyone everything I mean this last year has been. I've consume more content in more information in two thousand eighteen and a half my whole life, and once you do something so it can get born, and I don't want to get bored. I don't like getting bored. I like to be challenged. I like to challenge myself. So for me, it's like any any idea? I was on Ted talk the other day. And there was a guy that was he's been like a forget his name, man. I hate that. I'm gonna give his name right now. But he's been like the pretty much in something he was like seventeen and he's a he trade stocks from jail, and he's like really really good at it. Yeah. You know time to contemplate the market, exactly. He has so much time in I looked at his Ted talk. And he was just talking about how he's literally read every single article for the last like fifteen years in jail. He's been reading every article about stocks. So he understands when people are moving off of emotion verse. Versus like was actually happening in the marketplace. And like my mind was never opened like that two years ago. If somebody was sent me that in the tax on my pension. You know, I'm I'm on I'm going outside. But I'm man, I'm so I'm so open to information from any source like I tell people all the time. And if if you know me, you know, a text message about something I didn't know about is. That's like ice cream to me. You know what I mean? Like, that's what I want more. So than than anything else, you know that you can get excited about it that you're into. Yeah. You're clearly a voracious learner in every discipline that you can get your hands or your mind on everything. Yeah. I know so much for Lucia is crazy. I learned so much stuff that doesn't apply to anything in that even with beneficial in life. But it's like, I just want to know so much, man. I feel like knowledge like I was telling I was telling the other day. I was like man it's crazy when they used to say knowledge. Power in school. I didn't believe him. You know? But oh my God. I believe it. Now. You know, I so believe enough I'll believe is much information as you can get you can make so many decisions just by having information. And it's like you have to go seek it. You have to go ask questions a buddy of mine is he he's he's going. This will be a business venture. He was like, yeah. I'm about to start. I'm about to do this investment in and I'm about to move..

"So for me, it's like what is that concept? And I've been racking my brain trying to figure it out man trying to figure it out for sure for me in particular. I know film, and directing for me, it's like it's a way that takes me off of the books and offer the numbers and helped me focus on like just creating because I like to create I like to be in the credit space, and sometimes numbers and the books and the meetings and kind of take you out of that zone. So I want to balance that out more. So for myself is really like how can I do both and have more time to do both and still in where it doesn't hurt anything. It just still helps it and how to on how uplift the guys that are around me in the guys that that that that are that that pay attention to what I'm doing and try to like mimic it. How do I tell them? Don't mimic it. You know, take my concept you see. It but make it better. You know, you can't reinvent the wheel. But you could damn sure make it faster slider. You know what I mean stronger? You can you can do that. So that's really where I'm at mentally. It's like how do I inspire the people around me? So I can get the more free time to to get more in a creative zone in develop that part for me because I feel like I've done some creative things. But I'm nowhere near my capabilities for sure. Yeah. And in terms of, you know, the business in the in the in both the artists and TD, and you know, one of the things that we went through also were ten years old in a so y'all you've been a little bit longer crack wouldn t start teething started. It started before I was actually there. But it wasn't developed at that time. It was like they top just sign. Jay rock. It was his first heart. He signed her right literally. Since y'all been in highschool you've been doing this. We we we started when we were like right out of college and the family got us really far and having like family vibes got us really far. And then at some point, you know, like we really need to become a team you need to have team accountability, not family count ability. You know, I love my family unconditionally. I shouldn't do that with a team member or somebody I work with because if we're not all you know, like as higher as and Bs higher sees like I I like being on the excellent teams in that drives my capacity higher and higher. So is that. You guys think about or something is definitely is. And you know, you deal with that when you're in the business, and you do work with so many family members. You know, what I mean because we are family even though we're not bluff family, you know, we care about each other in that way. So it is about like even even in our system, we do have people that are not so much family that we have to hire outside because we have to create those parallels because you can't have those people right in the middle of the business because they're going to be conflict of interest in that in that form. So there's ways that we have to do that right in this current moment. And for example, my brother used to be he's he's he's Kendrick Mars music director along along with Tony Russell, and he was the drummer. And you know, he's older. So he wasn't the best drummer. And it was like that conversation was a hard conversation. You know, what I mean to really like because he wasn't. He was amused director. And it was like know you have to give up, you know, having that conversation you have to I have to find somebody that can be that person that can roam. You know for the artists on the correct standard in that conversation was hard. But you have to have those things and you have to put people in other places where they can grow. And he he grew into a a wonderful music director to the point where he he didn't understand it and at first, but he understands it now clearly because we have a better drummer in there night and day. You know what I mean?.

"You didn't really have to think about it. You can just learn from seeing seeing your crew, and like, you know, get an experienced TD came out of the mountain. Everybody's humble everybody. And then you've made a song about it. And it seems like it's a core. Mancha first principle man one hundred percent, I think we all have come from very humbling lifestyles and families. And you know, we're appreciative to be in these positions. And we don't take it for granted. We know this is a blessing, and if you don't treat a blessing like a blessing, you lose it. So we try to just stay grounded. Stay, you know, take it one one day at a time and just be appreciative of of being able to have, you know, positive great people around you, and that that instilled into you and put into you and help you grow as humans, you know, not just in business, and wealth, you know, mentally, physically, you know, like we get together, and we work out together. A lot of us in just build each other up. You know, what I mean because, you know, sound body sound mind, you know, you can you can do a lot of great things. And in the concept is still to this day. It's like I never want to be the smartest person in the room. Like, I never wanted to be the smartest person in room. And I don't think anybody in our team wants to be the smartest person in the room. I think everybody wants to be in rooms that help them be become better help them. Learn. Something you know, why would say that like the centers of power in this town in your business? Humble wouldn't be the first it has apparently that that uses a scribe that culture. And then even modern hip hop culture outside of your crew. It's not something that you're hearing a lot not do you think that that's something that could do you see other people sort of taking that on you think that something could become a cultural? Yeah. I think I think now I think more people are are really waking up and start understanding. It's all about helping each other as humans even to me like this year was a crazy year for me. Just mentally, you know, I I got a lot of success. But mentally, I wasn't where I wanted to be and I had to reset and during that time period. Resetting I've been saying like a lot of like signs that I'm on the right path and is being coming from a lot of people around me that are not in my direct circle. But it's like they see the difference. I see the difference in my energy. They see.

"It used to be when we first started. It was like people were, you know, we don't want, you know, ours are sensitive. So you don't want to like, you don't wanna critique to the point where you hurt. But you want to be honest. And I think that's the key is, you know, complete honesty. So we will bring all the artists in we say nobody has to write their name on this pad. But we don't pass this Pat around and everybody's going to vote on this song. And then the votes with would be the thing. But now, we got to a point where we all know each other. So well, you can ride your name when the Pat, and you can say this is what I hate. This is what I don't like. And we've had we've had some brutal meetings man, I'm talking about ruled or brutal brutal meetings. Because I've always like I was I was one that was always gonna speak. Honestly. So it was like you have to teach people that too. Because some people don't think they can be on some people are like this is artist craft then they should be able to do whatever they want to do creatively. And I feel that way too. I definitely feel that way. But I feel that way for a person that's going to the four artists that's going to be making music in his home and not trying to put it out to a world. That's gonna kick. Critique you because that's what's. Going to happen. You're gonna put out to the world. They're going to critique you. So if you can't take critique from your brother and the person has right next to you. Then why do you want to put out to the world? And how them critique you, you know. So I think is really important for the people around you to be completely honest, and whenever I get around people United as it. You know, if I can't be completely honest. I won't say anything and in if I end, but in most scenarios, if you ask for my opinion, I have to give you the truth because I don't wanna lose you down the wrong path. I don't wanna be the guy that says you ban that was weak. And then like what you didn't tell me when blade avoid. It's like, yeah. I'm gonna tell you from the jumping there's been times I've been completely wrong to it's been outvoted on things and different things are had opinions about songs that I was completely wrong. I'm I'm cool with that. I'm cool, it'd be wrong too. So it just comes with the territory this idea of radical transparency or radical candor that Dave practices. Religiously at TD it draws connections to people like Ray Dahlia what he preaches about his book principles and how he manages culture at Bridgewater capital and largest head finished in the world. He's he's using the same practices that are used it, Google and Facebook, and you know, Kim Scott wrote about in the book radical candor, but he's bringing this methodology to the business of hip hop, which is totally unheard of. You know, really bringing the principles of art to the artists, and it's rare, and it shows his incredible maturity and poise as a business person in future leader, you know, even with videos like I'm in this space to whereas whereas directly connected with artists I can make a video for artists. I've definitely spent hundred. Two thousand dollars on videos will we as a company spent hundred thousand dollars, and and it was my concept, and it was wack, and I had to hear out to take that. Yeah. And it, and I spent my time my energy on it. I thought it was probably the best thing in the world. And everybody was like that's wack. And then guess what it doesn't come out? So I have to take it to you didn't from higher standpoint. So when you're a new artist, you gotta take it to we all have to be in that position where we take it. If you can't handle that thing, you're on your own business. Yeah. And I love learning through Osmo sus can be around billion people and be around people that have something special..

"Welcome back to the art of the hustle, but they SRI co-presidents. He thank you for being here. You know, you're talking about artists and artist you work with sharpening the sword. And do it through repetition. How how do you do that? How do you manage yourself these days? I think the ability to to do more than one job and in the space. I think that keeps me sharper than the most. Because you know, I'm just not the guy, that's like one dimensional. I'm not gonna do one job. I'm gonna do twenty different jobs every single job in TD. I've had I carry bags. I walked around with artists and managing day to day built production for shows. I've created the merge, you know, did accounting even to this day. Like, we have a super super small office super super small team on a day-to-day basis. I mean, we probably have like seven or eight people in the office on a day-to-day basis. How many people are now at? ED fulltime full-time, I will say ten fulltime employees as great. So you guys keep it pretty in line, very small. My the office is my old kind of. It's a is two thousand Griffey in his two offices in there that yeah. So and is more of a creative space. It's we're looking for a bigger space. Now, we're looking for, you know, twenty thousand square feet space. Now, just how's everything? And do you see new artists as like new is almost like a startup is it like, you know, it takes for me when it's like, you know, I think about starting a new company, it's like, okay? It takes one to three years you're going to hire an executive team. You're going to structure, you know, the business you're going to figure out, you know, the eunuch nominees or have the business works. How you make money. You know, like doing branding building a website. All these things just like doesn't matter if it's, you know, small large whatever do you now have kind of like a roadmap for new artists like that we have a structure, but. In the music business. I think the best thing to be nimble when you get to locked into a structure Houston does on you. And you get old because everything's forever changing like the rules change so much even with streaming within the last few years, I did an interview and the main topic of the interview was, you know, not getting locked into old ways and trying to be, you know, try not to think that just because it's this work for this artist is going to work for the next because it doesn't work that way, and even like trying to call in your fan base, even to sometimes, you know, like they might like this artist. They might not like this other artists are, but they, but the, and there's some that might like this might not like the the main ours you thought so I think it's a is really based on the ability to be nimble into be open to new ideas and new ways of doing things, and I tell my guys all the time challenged me. You know, what I mean like to this day, my mom, my main quotas. I'll take information from a three zero three zero. Has the key member three zero came to me is like issues are wack, and I was like what What the the hell? hell? Three. I mean and in I didn't wear shoes anymore. In the moment. I felt like. I'm not listening to this kid. But then when I got home I lick that he that was honesty, and he didn't have you know, when kids are. So, you know, so young they that's the truth. Like, they're just saying how they feel. So it wasn't from meeting place. It was just he was on his kid. And I think that was like a life lesson for me when it came to the music business. It was like you can get information from anyone, and you know, if your ears are open, you know, if you're close you can't, you know, also read that you guys encourage your artists to give real critique hundred new albums that you is that something that you do do you like bring everybody.

"Where like you've created the DOJ o or like, the sound of the vibe, or, you know, the set of principles that has allowed your artists to continue to create this level you ever have people that are like remarkably talented, but don't really fit the culture. Yeah. There's always scenarios like that. I mean, I was on the phone with somebody today that super talented they fit in the culture of what we do. But it's hard to recreate the same thing. And I think that's you know, what people want a lot of the time from brands, and I think we've. Focused on kind of leading artists beat themselves in London develop in time. And I think that kinda was us apart from a lot of different labels. A lot of different people is how much time we give ours develop. I think the development stages have been stripped away from a lot of artists is so much focused on fame and fortune and popping right now. And a lot of times you have to forgo, you know, right now the present time for the future, and you have to have that insight to do that in a lot of ours that come into the fold have to compete with what we already did too. So it's like when you're coming in. That's a crazy amount of pressure. But for us, we not gonna put that on you. You know, you're gonna you're gonna experience that yourself in the you have to like work through it. But we're not gonna give you this mandate to be like you have to do it by this date. You know, what I mean, it's like do it in your time. And a lot of times to just even like the top of artists that we we approach. And now we go after we try to find people that have talent and hard work because it really does take both. I know a lot of artists that are. Super talented, but they don't work hard enough. You know, they can get on any song make great, but they don't work hard enough to do it consistently enough to get to break through. So it is a combination of a hardworking talented. I would always, you know, say I would hang my hat on artist that worked harder versus artist this time. I'll try to find both. But if I had to settle for artist, I was just super super hard. I will go go for that versus ours. As talented because you're going to develop those skills repetition, you know over time, and you might not be the one that can just come in and drop on the drop of a dime. It might take you two weeks to do it. But you're going to still deliver. And you're going to be dedicated to it, and you're going to appreciate it ten times more because how dedicated you were Bursa personnel. Just like so skilled that they don't have any appreciation for their skill is just like, oh, God bless me with this. So I can do it. And they don't appreciate they don't wanna work hard to make it better. You know? Well, we have to take quick break. We're here. Dave free bear it back. Not an awesome..

"So my brother taught me like he he gave me full access to to all this production equipment. He had a lot of equipment. So I came in on a producing tip, I produce like pretty much half a Kendrick I mix tape, and then it went from producing DJ because these animals like kind of paying the bills from me at the time. Like, I live with my parents with my dad was very stern. You know, when you live in this house, you you bring revenue into the house to help the house. So it was always that kind of conversation. And I would these. Day to help like bring money instead of housing money for myself. So I can go do different things. That's how I initially came in as a DJ. I didn't really know what I wanted to do. I knew that. I wanted to be in the music business. But I I really didn't know it was one of those things where I actually want to be like an artist I was more like young puff at the time. Like, you know, want to be on the song and. And didn't couldn't wrap for anything. But wanted to be in in that world, and you know, just as a growing up I start realizing I was more powerful behind the same Dave talks about young puff. He's referring to Sean puffy combs who in the early days was both managing Torius BI g running bad boy records and also appearing in the videos and recording his own tracks as a manager producer artist everything, and there's very few people that can do both. And it's really incredible to me how much self awareness. Dave had to not couldn't do both at the time. He wanted to be an artist and still sees himself that way, but he knew that he could push Kendrick and others further by focusing full time on the business aspects of the game. Like, I say probably like these was like the first round moving. Then Viagra fee will start to become a passion for me because it was like, hey, nobody will do videos for. So it's like, you know, got to pick up a camera. Got dude yourself, you know, and we're there some like seminal moments for you that you remember where you realize that you need to. Become sophisticated and business and understand the stuff. Yeah. It was a I forget what manager it was. It had to be either. I think it was Cortez Bryant Lil Wayne's manager. It had to be him now. Because every time I think about the story his he comes up, but I remember I went up to somebody. And I was like, hey, I got this artist Kate I you went by the time. It's like K dot now. I said I was as manager actually manages guy. Just I'm he's like, no, it's not your artist. I was like, well, you mean, he's like, that's your friend. He was like you're not a manager until you have something to manage it. Really stuck with me hit it hurt me. But at the same time it stuck with me because it meant a lot meant like don't focus on the business. I'd until you need to it was like focus on the music that creates the opportunity that gets you to focus on a business is.

So we really wasn't supposed to be over there. And we will I sneak in this neighborhood, countless nice just to go record just to do music and like looking back on it. Now, that's something. I would probably would never do. But when you're so young, and you're so passionate, you just wanna be you just want to be where the music side. When Dave recollect just how crazy it was for he and Kendrick to be going through those various neighborhoods in the late nineties early two thousands to record their music. He's referring to the gang violence and turf wars and craziness occurring in south central LA and all over LA, frankly during that time period in the areas Dave mentioned such as Khandan in good watts. It was not a stretch by means to say that they were putting themselves in danger to go on record that use it. We developed this out, and we always had to record like my mom's garage are my brother's house, and it was never like a stable recording scenario and a buddy of mine Ron told me about a top in his neighborhood.

And then I I was able to get in that circle of all those guys I knew Kendrick, and then that's how mckendrick and then you know, took him over there. Yes up. And so when you were learning the business at that point like you you've always crossed over whether it's direct videos are working with the artists themselves to like being heavily involved. Obviously in all the business aspects of what you guys have grown built at that early stage where you doing that already were you already kind of a foot in both or or what were you spending your time on I was more cinema time on producing I came in producing more..

"Give me a number. And he he called me up one day. I got a laptop you know, that Nissan working on and I had Kendrick demo tape. And I was like cool. I'm gonna working at allowed top bungee. Listen to this demo tape while I working a laptop. He was like cool. Let's do it. So I came to his house, and you know, came in the room, and he gave me a laptop and I gave him the CD. He put the CD you start. Listening and I took that laptop apart so slowly so he can get through every single song. Yeah. Of kendrick's. You know, what I mean while I was working on it. And I didn't even know what I was doing. I didn't work on laptops. I was more of a software guy. I didn't know anything about hardware, especially about, you know, opening up a laptop. But it was the thing that got me in front of him at the time. And that was it. And that was the start that was the start yet. I was a start. I didn't fix his computer. But I did, you know, put them up on some music that was though so and then I my brother was still in the mix up at the time, I introduced them, and we start using the studio and murder she wrote and here, we are twenty eighteen Grammys, Oscars and Pulitzer's. Yes. Crazy amazing. And did you did you guys already like when you look back or listen back on the music that you already making kindergarten? Have it was the production already had it? And I'll tell you this all the time the first the first rap I heard from him. I. Recite it, but if I heard it I will remember every every he had an ability to put together words as such a young age. And like we were talking about stuff like growing, find gang banging and drug dealing and all that different things. But just the way he did. It was different. You know what I mean? It was just so different. Because that was like the hip hop of our time period. It was really it was mainly about that. Like, our idols was Jay Z, you know to park biggie. DJ quick snoop Dogg thousand idle at the time. So it was really about, you know, mimicking that type of sound, and that type of that type of culture, and he just the way he did it. It was like he was a west coast do, but he had east coast, you know, lyrical ability, and I heard it from the first time it was three guys. It was my boy Antonio de Moses, and in Kendrick, and I met Antonio Antonio introduced me to Kendrick. He literally told me like this. He like if you like me, you'll love kinder-. I had them come to my. My mom's house I had like a makeshift studio in my room. And it really wasn't even really a studio was just a bunch of equipment. I just played together to look important, and he came through in our remember he just got on Mike and you start wrapping. And it was just like man is do like he was so much better than other guys. It was crazy like so much ahead of them. But they were in a group at the time. They wanted to be in a group because like group was the thing back then. And you know, I was just like at all by him. I was like man, you're the one, you know, I just knew it the first time I heard him. And I love that you in Kendrick at the same time kind of folded into TD and have this rich history. This family vibe that I've always gotten from you guys that is totally unique in singular, you know, like and so take me back a little bit. You know, this is like early days, you're making music, you have the company you're in like the startup phase will prior to being from TDA was like me Kendrick in my brother, and it was about four years of that of just like. Crying in. You know what I mean in developing his sound? This is like what kind of before we met top when we did like a mix tape, and we're just working like, I remember, it was crazy. We we would come home like every night for him..

"Dan, and unfortunate to call him, a friend. Dave, welcome to the show. Thank you, sir. And I must say you have a amazing radio voice. Appreciate that. This is you know, it's a new medium for me. So I'm just getting into it as though well, I was really excited to get you on the show because you, and I have talked to couple times about those initial moments and your story starts really young. Yeah. I was a house in ninth grade high school, you know, having beat battles on the lunch tables at my high school, and here now that here in LA Gardena hide it'd be specific I always been into to music, my brother, he kinda got me into music was a producer. So he kinda like show me the ropes of how to produce in different things like that. And kind of sparked that love always had a love of music, particularly like east coast hip hop when I was super super young. And you know, it was like if I like something that I had to be a part of you know, totally and you in Kendrick high school together, we didn't go to the same high school. He went to is actually a rival Taiba high school. He wants to centennial high went to Dina high. And it's funny. Because I grew up on the west side of LA. And then I ended up moving to the east side of LA. And it was like if anybody knows that type of scenario two different world, you know, there's so close, but so far we got introduced to a friend, and we just hit it off. It was just like brothers from another mother, you know, from the beginning. And then you met top at like fifteen years old, correct? I met top. Yeah. Turning sixteen. I believe at what's day when Dave refers to top. He's talking about Anthony top Dawg tiff with the CEO of top Dawg entertainment top again, his career as a record producer in the late nineties making his name by producing tracks for big artists like the game and juvenile and similar to Dave. He always had an ear for talent was looking for the next big voice in hip hop. Just like he did when Dave came over to fix his laptop and the rest is history have this thing and watts where it was like a tire issues, though, this thing that he's the kinda give back to the city and like, though, the free concerts, call wad stay and taught was there one day, and I knew about him because. Have friends that live right around the corner from him. And I always try to catch up with them. And that's kind of where it caught up with him. Was he already making music, and he was already involved in the music business. He was from producing standpoint he didn't really have any accent the time, but he was cultivating talent at the time. And how did you get his attention just walked up to him and told him off? I ran my name's Dave. And I do a lot of shit. That's exactly what I said. He's like what do you do? I was like a lot of shit. Yeah. Okay. And we will okay. And your first job for him was as a computer technician. Correct. It wasn't for him as a computer technician, I work for the Los Angeles school district as a computer technician, we're actually computers. I was actually a computer technician. Yeah. System support analysts for the Los Angeles unified school district district eight to be exact, and that's how I kind of guys attention. But during that time period, I wasn't a technician when I met him, and I was just young kid in school. And I know a lot about computers and technology at the time. Yeah. And I'm trying to pull this out of you. Because I remember this story you did go and chop off his computer, definitely, computer. Because after I told him, I know how to do a lot of shit. He was like, well, okay. Cool..
