Just China. destroying you the world then. We see. Reflection in the mirror. Of what Dr Martin Luther King is so many others tried for so long and we've come far or we see reflection of how far will really have to go still my God. When you look at that and you think like, what is this sixties fifties? Where are we? What happened? What did we do where our leader? What the Hell happened? We thought we'd come this far. So this is God saying a Ha. Look. At how much work there is do, and now the world is in protest when the whole world's and protests is like the majority of the whole world believes in Christianity. So you gotta say to yourself if you're human living breathing if that many people believe it I think I could be right. But if that many people believe it, it must be gone It's an inspired time. It's born out of incredible suffering and what an inspired time like. I'm animated right now you know to. Do Right. My whole life has been around how do you have right thoughts right actions. principle based, and there's so much more room to grow. You know like I love it. It's inspired and what would you hope? that. White people can do better. If, you have that bone in your body if you really don't understand get educated and also spike Lee said it all do the right thing. Do unto others as you would do to yourselves if this is not good for you and bad for you. It must be bad for somebody else in really trying to understand get the education.

Me Only fall for the reality. Reality. means. What can I do because look I? Mean I mean the entertainment business entertainment business. The King Cronin Crown Prince of the entertainment business is perception the publicists it's not how good something is Dr Mike Microsoft good. We make you think it is. It's the same way in politics.

One of the Great. So on the perception idea. One of the great constrictors of potential is the chronic thinking about. Or behaving in alignment to what others might be thinking of me. and. So when you think of other people's perceptions of you or an artist you're working with. Can you just talk about if if I'm down the right path, if you think I'm down the right path about the constrictor of the fear of people's opinions, and if so how do you help people work through that?

"So with that the trump right back into our conversation. You know. What come to learn is that when pain is bigger than purpose, pain will win? And we get to determine or CO create. Right, we have a say in it and I love this idea of co creating because it is our purpose is incumbent on incumbent upon our relationship with others including Mother Nature. and. So this purpose driven approach to life is really important and I've also learned randy that. Most people struggle with purpose it almost feels too big. That where do I start in? So I'd love to know, can you articulate your purpose? Like can you get it out in a handful of words or sentences in in a succinct way? By the grace of God I think I was born with the some. Things I mean I knew as a young boy things I saw that spoke to me and I went after them sports spoke to me music spoke to me. Greatly, it was duality for most of my life until I got to college level. I played sports alter out. You, know high school junior high elementary all the teams all track football baseball basketball also play music in every band and everything. So it was the duality that just struck me because Thank God my parents. Let me choose. Wilmington freely whatever I wanted to create or be married. So for me the purpose in the direction was there but listen. Just. Because it's there didn't mean I didn't have to do the work. So I had to do the work and I had to find within my soul was going to be my voice. What is my individuality? Does. Does anybody need another great singer? I would always say on idol Simon. Hitters. No but the world needs another singer that's different with a different personality with a whole different sale somebody. That's great is unique. Not Somebody not more of the same the beach of the need anymore. But it's that in itself is hard for people down to stay. So that purpose of understanding who I am of, what do I have because God has given us all something unique within our cells. It's up to us to find out what that is and build upon that. Your purpose is to know yourself to know your gifts and to build around those. What makes me special? Doctor Mike. What makes you special randy what makes you special? What did you get at somebody? Else can get how do you answer that? Why can only answered for me? Yet right right. But I think you gotta dig deep and Find Out Okay this twenty people in a room, ten people, five people but cousins might friends whatever whatever how might different from each one of these what am I thought processes what am I feeling water my visions how do I see the room also? How do I look at things? Because I only say a thing is all in the way you look at. That is why they say one man's garbage could be another man's goal. So. Right. Am I, looking at it, the right way am I seeing this for what it is? That's one of the sleight of hand tricks not that I'm really into politics but that's one of the sleight of hand tricks. Politics plays what was laughing Hollywood about politics because it's a publicist dream. Because I can use all the slann perception tricks in full the people. Know Man. If I could count on your vote in the next election I'm GONNA do everything in my power to help you wait a minute you have no power you may not even went. Off Wow. This guy's really nearly cares about me. So. This slide a handwriting. Of of that. You know I. Mean You can't have that. You have to be really guttural honest with yourself in really breakdown and find out who am I n except that I know I think I want to be an astronaut or race car driver but. Hey I'm a great shaft. Why should I be? Why can't I accept that for what it is? Why do I always have to? The grass is always greener somewhere else. For me, it's a bit of a trap for many people and I found myself in it at one point in my life, which was that I needed to do something to be somebody I needed to the only way that I could find passion and aliveness was by That thing. and. That's that's I think a circular trap that we find ourselves in because that thing is just a placeholder for the way we want to feel now we can cultivate the way we want to feel and experience life moments moment without having that guitar hand or surfboard under feet or stage to sing from whatever it might be. Right. I gotta say to you something here. I was just thinking about not to cut you off but. What are the things that tremendously helped me? That may help other people out there. There's a part of psychology called Behavioral Psychology, which I'm sure you know. Well. So I wrote a couple books back in the day on my journey to try and get optimal health, which also helped him for me unified health labs with a great doctor Melina that I started. and. One of the things Mike did help me. With that is you have to behavioral psychology at the change the way you see what your problem in your issues are. Are you looking at them honestly for what they are? If I can change the way you look at eating and what you eat. Maybe you can do the next step. So if I don't change the way, you look at that. You're GONNA think Goddamn famished I. Know I should be on this side but I'm hungry as hell I can eat a horse in damn I'm GONNA try. So you do so all things Abusseta get you back to zero. But if I changed the way, you think about that and say listen you could have those thirteen Baker's dozen donuts but you're not gonNA feel well. Guess what you could develop like I did type two diabetes you could develop all of these Ellis's. This could lead you down a never ending pat. That, you given into all your craving. So changing your mindset about how even looking at your own life, your own problems, your own circumstances, your own situations, your own way of overcoming your obstacles in overcoming what you'd think your shortcomings. May. If, we can help people change the way they look at it and find that. So cloning of a thread thinking give them hope and purpose in darkness Omar God this is Mike. This is it. I get why people want to be around you right? I get why you are an asset in the process of becoming in artistic expression and if there was like one two, three, whatever things that you could recommend for people to do this investigation work what if those processes been for you is writing is at mindfulness fill in the blanks, inspire conversations with wise men and women. Are The things that you would recommend people do or or double down on. I think really having conversations with inform people listening to podcasts like this and others I think digging as much as you can and Willie sitting quietly and just saying to yourself who am I What am I best that not one of my good. What am I bested I. Mean people all the time I can do this. I can do that people come in and audition on idol I think jazz blues rock country on be a classical whatever..

"Grow and you must be doing something right. Ah bellies growing. But I'm curious I WANNA get to your health transformation a second because it's amazing what you've overcome and what what you're doing now with this new brand you have but I'm curious there had to be something special you had to keep getting asked back to go from one person to the next person because you might be talented enough to say Okay Whitney Houston's give you a shot but you gotta have something else to have of like ten twenty forty other people say we need you as well. There was a relationship quality. How was it a I think it was? I think it was the relationship thing and I also think think dad. I did a lot of sponge in listening. So I'm thinking about now when we were doing hollow I know eh we were doing that. And we're making production. I said you know if she went up in that beaver somebody who some who really like. Because she's another. She was such an effortless talented unbelievably early talented girl. That you know I just I would really listen and pay attention and never thought a new too much but always trying to bring the positive and the whatever to the session and really trying to find the greatness in the moment in the song You know what's going to make this great and how's this going to try and get the listener to pay attention because something always grab you make you you pay attention right. We're all busy. There's a thousand things. I mean. One of the downsides of social media. I think it's a double edged sword is way too much noise going too much noise always going on before now and all that there's way too much noise. How did you get somebody to pay attention? You got to grab him by the collar and pull them close. Listen and force them to hear you out to. Hopefully they get it. Yeah but I think it's I think it's the combination of everything.

There's too yeah bro and So my my parents majors. My my brother was one of the top class called hold classical in the country for his age group under eighteen then he went to prison in eighteen pursuing LS cover cop and Ohio state was imprisoned. Seven six to twenty five years for selling wants you to do an undercover cop. Got Out four and a half years and good behavior but during that time when he joined the prison band and he was the only white guy and all these older guys taught him blues hip hop rats is he still rb and jazz and now now he's the number one jazz violinist and the world what. What's his name Christian House? He played with Les Paul For ten years in New York City. He's played with all the greats all around the world old and he's the baddest for on the electric or jazz by Lynch. You ought to watch. It's unbelievable to tell him to start a band for sure man Out here but So I grew up in jazz clubs watching him play like every week. I just my dad would take me out. After he got out of prison. He was playing a lot to get his is feedback on the ground. And I learned about jazz. Just sorta learn appreciate it like jazz like a sport like bouncing off of each other. And you're all this sitting connecting and it's improvisation. I often say that the quintessential jazz musicians are probably in my estimation mation greatest musicians unbelievable because you have to interpret and you have to Adron voice to something so you have to be able to improvise revise. This is why probably the biggest song learned in Berkeley schooling music or any of the colleges across the country giant steps by the Great John. Coltrane turn because the changes and the modality of which the changes following you play through in the circle of I mean just. Yeah my God. That's cool did you. It's amazing did you go to Berkeley at all or I did to Southern University at same time I'm in Louisiana and my brother went with a great teacher named Alvin Batiste and he just helped us all through tremendous. One of the greatest is teachers but I took privately in Iranian fell in love with miles and culture and fortunate enough to play with Uh Billy Cobham who was in the Vishnu Orchestra. Speaking of Jerry Goodman violinists jazz violinists and I worked a lot. John Ponti how he's also big Jasmine Lynch which and I just fell in love with it. The whole fusion thing to me is like rock and roll with every note every mode every time signature possible muscle. It's kind of like being a linebacker. You GotTA learn. Everyone ended and when you think about Ornette Coleman and then you think about p. folk or you'd think about any of those bands like that everything worked everything was used. I mean just unbelievable high caliber of undestanding music. Yeah anointed son Raw. All the freedom jazz guys. I mean I can't say enough John McLaughlin probably one of the greatest guitar players in the world of not for that music. Traders just live and breathe. Cold train started mob Bob Issue Orchestra. That was just. Oh my God you know. I was listening to something the other day. This guy is just next level it it doesn't get any higher. It's like in the Olympics. The degree of difficulty. He's there with Coltrane and all the rest of them. I mean someone turned me onto this kid years ago as they missed Joey. He's this young kid. Piano player signed a verb. I think he's just I I just I just fathom that you can improvise play hearing all the notes and all the tones and just do it so expertly. Well I just love. It's beautiful to this day. I still love jets. Yeah you're extremely educated and a breadth of music lots of different modalities of music. You played with so many great people. You've also just seen a lot of great people didn't play with. Who is the European? The greatest person that you played with for so many years and who is the greatest either singer artist musician in that. You didn't play with that. You were so an all with. They play with Canada. You know it's hard to say I mean I was so many people on tour you played played with John McLaughlin offers that were that were in my vision. Because I've worked with Mike Walden work with Billy Kaban. Both drummers were quick both violinists Jerry Goodman I and who can work with Herbie who played him and John and all those guys played with miles I I oh I you know some of those guys have probably the greatest. I mean Herbie I mean yeah I mean miles Coltrane John I just just on the singer side the Popstar side. Who is the most talent? Fortunately for me I R- worked where it's more like a top opt-in for made from springsteen to Billy Joel Wow to Elton John to aretha to Mariah To Whitney to Cellini on to all those unbelievable greats I just I. It's hard to pick one. I mean because you're musical director for a few of them right. Yeah but aretha inspired so many people god recipe the song I mean just I mean you know in all of those grades that that also they all came with their own Wayne Yeah. None of those sounded the same. Even Dylan didn't sound like any one. I mean this is. This is what I still challenge artists artists with today. I know you can copy anything out there. You can be the best biggest trap star people come up to me every day. Musical sounds the same on the radio. Well as some some of the same same producers same melody same sounds all this and people kinda just WanNa copy each other because they want to just be on the radio. Well yeah they want something like if somebody gives them that but what is your brand. What are you selling? I know what everyone else is selling. Give me something unique to identify you buy if you can't I don't know who's the most unique person out there right now. The most unique artist. I`Ma Karuna Mars is out his own lane.

Not only to meet but so many people I I know. Randy Jackson Entrepreneur unbelievable superstars today. Thanks man you know I called you because if I really went through all the different listings of what what you've done from the music career to the TV career to the production entrepreneur VC career. We'd be here forever. I Really WanNa get to your playbook to success because you're someone no matter what you have done you somehow rise to the top like the cream of the top of the cream and he started at thirteen eighteen just as a musician in Louisiana. Yeah right now Duke South Company in the deep South Yeah. I love to get the perspective of a thirteen year. Old Of what so you thought you were going to be. You know as a thirteen year old Louisiana. You know you think that ever going to get out of here one of my dreams when what I WANNA do and it's funny for me when I think back about it now. I Guess I was an entrepreneur even as a kid because I was playing sports I was in a bunch of bands I was in the orchestra of playing football and I was in the marching band which plays for the football game but I mean I was doing a lot of things even then because I was one of those kids that I would just soak up and sponge everything I heard and I guess I was Kinda wide and interested in a lot of things but got. It didn't realize that until I got older how to do it. And how to make things manifest. So one of the things about grownup Louisiana new you went to two lane there. Bless bless you. He's a Louisiana boy. Anyway at heart you learn the word authentic. So that's a big thing on the music side. They go like. Yeah No. That's what you're doing but does that really you days George Porter right because they don't believe you because you know people want to do a lot of things and people lining fantasizing. I do shit because that really you so that was one of the things the other thing that really occurred to me when I was younger and I didn't know what this meant is that always felt felt like okay. Let me try and do some you do the best that I can let me try and be the best I cannot it and then go you know what I'm satisfied with that what's what's next. So what's next has always been a big thing of mine. And then there was a song around seventeen. Eighteen came out donny. Hathaway song actually and one of the lines that it was basically essentially the way I took it was essentially evolution of the man. We're evolving continuously and every age no matter what age done this. What's next what's driving? You keep pushing you and people say the phrase that listen. I'll sleep when I'm dead had never stopped pushing because you always interested in curious. At least I am in things and what's going to help people what can inform people. What can inspire people? Because that's really what the life of a music man really. Is You know those lyrics. You become the poet of the people and you want to inspire people people have them aspire to see where they could go to like you know for every started you love. I don't know what music you really love. But you go that guy. Did it springsteen fan did it. Wow that guy came from. Nobody's probably five people in the bar and when he first played and he's playing the stadiums one hundred thousand people so so even when we were doing idol to me I would say to people. Well listen it's like the rocky story set to music. Can the butcher as unbelievable that same beat the a chance against all odds bro the thaw so I always do that and I'm always been interested in a lot of things in music other than the art perform itself of writing producing performing in his seriously a business so in order to really ascendant in an excel in it. You have to really figure out what the businesses because you know. You don't trust many people. I'm like now everyone's guilty until proven innocent. Sorry it's just what I've learned But you know what do you what do you do. You know what I mean. What what what do you want to do? And what do you know about business. So you always rely on other people if they're telling you the truth or not so once again sought person or they just lied to me and they have different agendas so I started to learn a lot about the business everything that I could because then I could protect the art that I was creating or managing helping to create and one of the things I never thought I'd do. After my journey days is I became an anr God for twenty years in corporate record company America. One of the things that it really helped me is I was in the business now. Understand the business so right somebody goes well I. I don't like that song. Sorry twenty million people up in new binded so I'm happy you don't like it. We're killing it over here so lesson. I'm just trying to become producer. This is like in the eighties. I was working on record with the late. Great Tom Dowd. who had done their part of the Atlantic records as years with Aretha with Ray Charles You Know Rod Stewart. He making all these records so I was doing a session up in the bay area and San Emphasis go. I was living at the time with him. And he said so. He won't be record producer now so he says one of those music school guys go well. Oh yeah you know. I went to music school. And you know you played a lot of jazz jazz and you did all this jazz fusion stuff so we get you know a lot oughta notes on that and go. Yeah I wasn't thinking it was the discipline real. He says okay. Pick up the billboard magazine go ooh take on. Since what do you like in a top to know. What do you like in the top twenty? I look at an ago. Some of this stuff is cool man. You know what I mean. He says that's exactly the answer that I thought you again I go. Wow what do you mean I mean. He says well the first lesson. I'm going to teach you as a producer. You gotTA figure out why those songs resonating with people. Why they're loving that at how to apply that to what you're doing? Forget whether you like it or not whether you like it or not is immaterial here. That's that's that's the back part. He wanted number one. If you're a business person you love Bill Gates. Jeff bezos. Whatever what did they do? What are they doing that? You can apply apply to your own life so because those guys have done it and made it quadruple times. So that's the thing to study to aspire so that's what happened to me early on as a producer because I had to really figure out the business because people all have lives. You know people like this. I don't like that people love this. I hate that but the opinions. Everyone's Gama but where's the majority of the opinions and the business sense so funny thing in the record business my first two weeks on the job at Columbia records. I was like okay guided. Now I think all these people love this record. Five people hated ten million people. Love it. I'm going with ten million. Forget being this artists in our why is it resonating with people like why might listen to the haters that few number and not really paying attention to what's working gene so learning to pay attention to what's worked and continue building on that and the frequency hold even more today's amplify with social media and four point two billion people can access data. Ip Music in other words right. That's what it is at a mass level. One of the interesting things that I look through your career though that most people have a huge struggle with is you've been successful in so many of the most competitive challenging coup industries that have one word in common with a high percentage of of failure in. That's you hear no a lot so you must have an extraordinary philosophy about handling. No because I imagine besides me looking how I am helping women. You look take success. Because I'm an expert at taking no like I literally see no is you know I'm this much closer to yes right. Austin said pretend like twenty-five knows away from your yes. You'll love getting Noel. How did you handle so many knows your life love Jolo stain? Listen that's the truth right there to me if you feel something in your gut. It's not a matter of if it's just a matter of when so what most people do is they give up early. You have to keep toeing the line keep toeing the line because I truly believe God the universe everything will allow that to happen when they really believe. That's what you want because I think I think people pray every day about all sorts of nonsense. I want a new jacket. I want a new car need a new house. I need more checks. I need more dudes need more money. Whatever whatever but really what you need or is that just what you want so big thing for me in life? Is that an old blues player. That was playing. They were great clarence. Gatemouth Brown to me one of these days and it just was so great for me to hear one of these days. You'RE GONNA learn to want what you need as opposed post. Need what you want. Thank you say to people all the time today. You want chicken tomorrow to be beat tonight. You may want Sushi. I don't know Pasta Pizza. I mean that one something like I have this whole thing about buying a house buying cars behind whatever I bought the black one six months. I should've gotten the white one. Maybe I wanted to read one so so this is just fueling the game of you just being a buyer of some. It's not really satisfied anything because it's not what you need beat up so all we getting when we need in that relationship. Are we getting what we need and business relationship or we're getting what we need in our lives. Are we really really getting. We need to help us live our best life or we just wanting in wanting and wanting putting a band aid on what we need as opposed to getting and what you need I love that because my philosophy of happiness is enjoying wait learning to consistently every day persistently without quit pursue. Your potential right in that potential can change like you said but what I loved about idle and you had this conversation. You said you're testing faith in order to get an even in front of you at first you have to have so much faith you have to vote for yourself so many times to stand in lines and go to the trials and then go to auditions and all the way up to the fact. We're you have Iraqi at the end. Sorry just knock him down sixteen times. We're going to get up. There's still going to get up every single one of them and that's why people love them. Well it's funny. You say that because I say to people all the time they look at me like I'm crazy. I am a little bit creepy sometimes admit it but I know it's not really the story of music as much as it was the story of the perseverance of spirit that faith. So do I believe I going to get this. What do you judges allow me to get him? You Randy Paul Simon or am I gonNa get it regardless you have to have that stealth attitude that I'm going to get it regardless but I put a little caveat there the other thing is that. Don't be fooled by the EGO. Don't be deformed by the fantasy only be fooled by the authentic real truth and my is good as I think I am. If not get better but really really be completely honest with yourself and get honest with yourself because I say this to every artist meet the wants to have a manager and deal with me and whatever so listen this who who you think you are this who you think he want to be. I only want to mess with who you really. Are you ready to sell who you really are. I mean because people believe and they buy authenticity. They don't know that's what they buy when they listen to the radio. They're buying something because they really believe it could not even be something that they like but they go. Wow they really meant that I meant it. Same thing as you transitioned into the entrepreneurial world about economics I talk about the intensity deals the the quantitative value subjective value. Is you learn as you got into music industry. There's a lot of subjective value from one to twenty but somewhere along the line line there's a quantitative value of ten mean people you'll love inspired by the song and are willing to write and take their money to go buy it right that quantitative quantitative value I believe is a form of authenticity that people so much of the time are drawn into bad business deals in both of us any in the world no matter how great we are in a bad deal and what they taught me right which that's a quantitative value right. Isn't it what do you look for now. With all that wealth of experience not only in the industries that you've been in but more importantly now as an entrepreneur. What what are the things that you look for in a good deal? Well the things that I look good deal is. Is it really a good deal first and foremost is it working. Do I think it's going to work in scale from where it is and I say to myself. Why does this need me? Why isn't it happening without me? Just guttural curro real bottom line so if they have to come to me and I'm want listen I think I'm the Lord I think I'm great thing. I'm amazing grace. Save whatever whatever why are they coming to me they must have gone to another one. Hundred People Four so they're coming to me as everyone else you said. No why did they say no. I mean these are smart people that can possibly see what I see..
