And if you can't visit you can visit on zoom by phone any number of ways but Mark great to see you and we have a lot. We have a lot to do today but just want to say welcome It's interesting you were saying what we'd be talking about a which is dates and important scheduling. I think when people get to be older in. I include myself in that area. The datebook and the schedule in the calendar is more important than ever. It seems when it comes to retirement. That's certainly the case. Yeah i mean we all want to stay on track with everything. You don't want to have to make costly mistakes when it comes to people thinking about retirement or in retirement you know things like health care choices. Withdrawing money from retirement accounts the timing of doing that paying your taxes. I mean nobody likes to do it but everyone wants to do it on time. Don't want you don't wanna miss out on these. These key dates because they can cost you money and they can create penalties. That are completely unnecessary. But it's very overwhelming when you think about all the rules regulations and all the changes that have joe. What can you as organization do to help us get through it. All overwhelming is is is a word that we don't like to use that when you're talking about retirement people i mean i know people get overwhelmed. They know that there's a lot to it but the reality is you sitting down with a professional. Starting a conversation with someone they can take the guesswork out of it for you and tell you what's important for you and what's not important for you That just puts a person's mind at ease and eliminates that overwhelming feeling. That's what we do in. That's offered these fifty minutes strategy goals to to people who listen to this show to call in based on topics that we talk about. Today are topics that we've talked about before something that's kind of burning in their mind I get to the bottom of it actually is even relevant to you or not seven eight one eight three six four. Two one four is the number for that No obligation fifteen minutes strategy. Call to to get some of these questions answered right off the bat so if you were to advise people who are approaching retirement manar talking specific dates right now. But what are the key things they really have to keep my. I mean i. I think february is fantastic months Assess where you're at. A people are starting to pull their tax documents together. Starting to i actually spoke to a couple of clients this past week ve already filed What starting off as early as all right this year might go to reach a milestone age. Do i need to address something. A milestone ages is being in. My world is fifty nine and a half. I'm gonna reach fifty nine and a half quite important age. Well if you're still working and you've got a 401k or four zero three b plan fifty nine and a half is the year where the world gets opened up to you in what's called an in service distribution where you can decide where your money is going to be have. You don't have to decide where you're are. You don't have to let your employer decide where it's going to be so fifty nine and a half is a huge milestone age for at pre retirees That we'll we're working with sixty two is also pretty significant age as well for those who decided to retire early on. You know that that age old question of do i take social security early sixty two or do i wait until sixty six in whatever amount of months. It is to hit full retirement age or i wait till seventy. That's that's a not an easy decision to make it but it's a conversation that we have at least we have. It's sexual retirement services on a daily basis with clients. So yet do. Do you decide to take it early. Do we at break even analysis. Do we see what what makes the most amount of sense for your particular situation and then another key milestone age is is now seventy two used to be seventy and a half but now it's seventy two years old. That's the new required minimum distribution. I i hear caroline here in the office on the phone with clients all day every day. Teeing up their required distribution because nobody wants to miss out on having to take that money out because the penalty is fifty percent. If you don't take it out that's a mistake you don't make one time but that's a costly mistake. You you mentioned social security which happens to be your bailiwick. You really know your social security ins and outs and it used to be pretty standard sixty five and out now. There are so many things and we've mentioned them in the past Whether a spouse has his or her social security paid up to a certain extent or whether there's a a widow or widower involve all kinds of variations on the on the theme. Yeah i think you know especially in this particular day and age literally like this year with the new changing of the guard in washington. Dc there's a lot of uncertainty about what the future of social security is going to be. What the new rules are going to be going forward so sometimes people really like to think of the the burden the hand mentality of will what should i do now in order to ensure that i'm able to get my fair shake out of the the benefits like contributed to my whole working life. So that's a lot of the conversations that we would have with with pre retirees raven post retirees have not filed yet because we see a lot of them at. But there's i mean there's so many key dates and i. I was just going to zip through a calendar of dates Some of these numbers dates. Most people probably are aware of and some of them. They are maybe aware of starting off the beginning of the year january first new year two new tax year two new calendar year. So for those of you who were fifty years in older and are still working. It's a new opportunity to put up to twenty six thousand dollars into your 401k. Or four three d if you're under fifty years old it's nineteen and a half thousand dollars this year that you could put in there. Which does it make sense to put the money in does it. Does it make sense to not put money into your 401k. Which sounds ridiculous from a financial advisers perspective. But you the reality is. We're in really low tax rate tax attack environment right now and most thinking people know that taxes are most likely going to go up. So does it make sense to defer taxes in the low tax environment to have to pay taxes higher tax bracket when you go into retirement this short answer is i don't know jordan. I mean that's the conversation that we would have with clients on a case by case basis to see what makes sense for them. I think that's the key it's case by case it's not cookie cutter by any stretch of the imagination. And one of the things as i've talked to many of your clients over the last couple of years one of the things that they appreciate the fact that you look at them as individuals with their own story in their own future in their own hopes and dreams and You can apply a variety of options. But it's not a one-size-fits-all. I think that's important. You're listening to retire. Social radio with mark roulette the founder and president of south shore retirement services so january one big date. We all know that Besides dipping your toe into the cold like the street brownies. There's a lot going on at the beginning of the year You mentioned february's an important month and were still smack dab in it Groundhog aside because you've got taxes.

"Welcome, this is another edition of retire South shore great to be with you Jordan here along with my good friend and of course our host mark Roelet the president and founder of south shore retirement services located in Hingham. And we're all about making your life very very happy and comfortable and Giving that sense of peace of mind that is so important mark. Great to see you. Tom Brady made it to the playoffs? Last week we were talking about Brady. And he'll never retire and he's already in the super bowl. Can you imagine that bananas. nash. Honestly i. i know. I'm probably going to get shot for saying this on the air but i'm delighted for him and there's a lot of new England people who might not want him to get there but i think it's great. I hope he. I hope he ends up getting another super bowl ring while mookie Betts prove you can leave boston and win it all into will do as well we're here to talk about winning the game of retirement planning and why it's such an important and helpful issue. Today, though we might focus on something that might be a little tougher for some people to hear. But it's a fact of life and death, and that is when a spouse or a mate or partner passes, and this is a very important consideration. Not something you have to dwell on folks but you should be prepared for. So how would you like to open up the discussion today. Mark yeah i mean it's it's it's not the most enjoyable conversation for individuals to have but it's a harsh reality of life and i think it makes that knowledge of knowing that if something happens to you you know you've covered your basis. It just takes that pressure off takes that stress off. Somebody's plate quite honestly As you know. I've been doing this for a long time. And unfortunately i'd seen you know. Probably too many clients that actually became quite good friends. Pass away leaving somebody behind and leaving somebody behind him still has needs obviously have needs but has financial needs That have to be met. And that's really trying to. You know to try and talk about things you can do to avoid what we might call the survivor trapper. That widows penalty Things that you can prepare for just so you know what's going to happen ahead of time and that's part of our strategies in our process would be to look at the not. What if scenarios but the when scenarios of how much money is going to be lost as a result of somebody passing away and it's not just the norm of what you would think there's other things that can be negative impacts l. survivors. Well we've talked a lot over the last couple of years about the increased longevity for both men and women in america and the fact that people are living a whole lot longer. But we still have to be ready in our paperwork and in our planning for that eventuality. That will face all of us. And i keep saying over and over again once you get that done. You don't have to think about it if you're the person signing the documents get it done and it takes all kinds of worries off the table. What are some of the the consequences then of not preparing. I mean the the obvious one is for the majority of our clients. They have social security number the current rules for social security If one person passes away generally the survivor will just receive the larger of the two benefits. When i say generally was different rules that apply if you have them federal type engine Generally if a couple let's say one person's making twenty one hundred dollars a month and social security in another person's making seventeen hundred dollars a month and social security and either one of those people pass away the survivor will get two hundred dollars a month and social security which is good that it's the larger benefit but it's terrible jordan because imagine if you're that couple that's living on what forty eight hundred dollars a month. That's seventeen hundred of that money. To seventeen hundred dollars is gone. Don't tell me that's not going to have a financial impact on the survivor. Of course is gonna have a financial impact on the survivor so planning ahead of time With regards to a how you take social scaring when you should take it. We do a lot of counseling on timing of social security and you know the benefits of raising are obvious but there's also a negative in it's school break even How long's it gonna take you to recoup the money you gave up before you start action seeing additional dollars So you really want to go into retirement planning with your eyes wide open but certainly you know. Put pen to paper on filing for social security with your eyes wide open. A huge factor of course is the issue of probate. And that's why having an estate plan is mu-chou important for we say it every week but in this particular context of getting together with somebody like bill caldwell who's on staff as the attorney and really mark mapping out what it is. You wanna do what your plans are for the future after you're gone. That is so critical. And it can save you and your family and the people do leave behind a whole lot of heartache. I can't tell you that's probably the greatest three hundred ninety nine dollars that anyone would ever spend because that's what we charged for the entire estate plan to wills to powers of attorney to health care proxies revoke -able trust basically a couple of would need in order to get their legal house in order and Let me just tell you a quick story Rather than explain that the each those plans because that's bills job Many years ago. I started working with a schoolteacher down in the cape and he had a side business fixing computers at back in the day. When you fixed computers throw them away An and decide business accumulated quite a bit of wealth. Inside of a business bank account on he retired and we had just started working together. We had not gotten to the point of implementing anything. We just started working together two weeks. After he retired his wife came home. wasn't there was no sound in the house didn't hear anything went down basement. Light was open where he was working on his computer where he had killed over and had a massive heart attack announced away. Horrible right two weeks into into retirement just filed for his pension and he's got like his whole retired life. Her world has changed. I after he just happened to stumble upon it and i was doing a follow up call. 'cause i didn't hear from them. I call the house daughter answers in tears but delighted that i had actually cold. 'cause the mom wanted to get on the phone so long story short with regards to legal planning. They didn't have any legal documents and normally people would think is when husband passes away. Everything just transfers as you know right marriage to to the space and for the most part that's correct but not a business bank account that at one hundred and ten thousand dollars in cash inside that bank account. That was only in his name. It's called dying into state. And i'm not an attorney. That's why i have attorneys on staff but the end of the day that money could not be touched by his surviving spouse for two years two years just because a simple document wasn't put in place so yeah absolutely. Those documents are critically important. There's so many stories. Unfortunately that i've and experienced and been involved in over the years that could have been so easily avoided if somebody had had their legal house in order to that. So yeah that's a. That's a huge

Steroids should be stripped of their medals and states. That do not run clean. Elections should be stripped of their electors. This fraud was systemic. it was repeated. It was the same system.

I think the republican name to be honest with you bill because after yesterday's show of non republican force. Oh wow it boy. They died on the vine like instantly yesterday.

Anyway i don't know let it be powerball mega millions tonight guys and is this a good thing. I think it actually is. I think it's only because of the economy couple of days before christmas. Obviously christmas eve amount of stores at a closing early they save for their employees is big lot of a lot of most will be closing by six o'clock. Some buy seven like best buy is going to close it. Seven targeting at eight target traditionally stays open till ten. But they're going to close earlier so that really curtails your christmas shopping. Yeah what are you gonna do because usually don't show up at the store until six six done by six thirty they're closing. It's six now up earlier. I don't know. I don't think it'll be six most of the stores i would go to. I think they'll be later but at least they'll close a little bit early like they won't have people doing stock stuff that yeah and what's nice is the I don't know what about The day after christmas targets closing at eight. Yeah so do they open up. You know the day after christmas at four o'clock in the morning remember. They used to do that so hopefully not hopefully it's regular hours and people will have somewhat of a nice holiday with their family. Get up the day after christmas at four. Am and go to a store.

You're listening to retire. Sell shore radio for more visit. Retired south shore dot com. Welcome back part. Two of our program today retire south shore radio jordan along with margaret the founder and president of seltzer retirement services located in hannam with clients throughout the south shore and beyond and a lot of folks by the way. A lot of folks are heading south. Have probably already flown. The coop are snowbirds and we wish them. It's tough no matter where you are. But at least we hope our listeners who pick us up on On the web are listening enjoying the time in the warmer weather so we talked a little bit about why people are so gaga over the roth. Ira there are some real benefits. But what might be some of the drawbacks. Some well i mean the obvious reason for a roth conversions to transition money. That's going to be taxable during your lifetime anyway. It says no control over that because required distributions. If you transition at the reason for doing roth conversion now would be if you're going to be in higher tax bracket in the future and why might you be in a higher tax bracket in the future. Well taxes are most likely going to go all right so the idea of this low tax environment. That we were in now is not going to last forever. So that's the reason to do it. But there's a lot of reasons to not do a roth conversion and don't just jump in because somebody told you this is the the the greatest thing since sliced bread because it might not make sense for you like any financial strategy or instrument could be perfect for one person terrible for another person so one of the big reasons obvious. Reason is you're going to be in a lower tax bracket in the future. And why would you be in a lower tax bracket in the future when taxes are going up as i said two seconds ago. Well maybe make one hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year but you live on seventy thousand dollars a year right so you go into retirement now. You don't need that hundred and fifty that tax bracket that you're in now you're in a seventy thousand dollar tax bracket so you're in a lower tax bracket so why converted when you're making all this money and create additional taxes that you don't need to pay for that's one major reason to not do a roth conversion another pretty and i have like seven of seven reasons really will go dorton reason to not do a roth conversion and this actually came open conversation with a client. Few weeks back that came to a workshop came into the office. Ho to do a roth conversion 'cause they wanted to get everything title when they were getting ready to retire next year a move down full-time to their at their condominium in florida and sell their house in massachusetts like i just wanna get everything. Buttoned sounds like a great strategy. Let's do that in a night. I said will you just told me. The reason to not doing are token about. I said you just said you're going to sell your place in massachusetts moved to florida. What's the big difference between besides the weather between massachusetts and florida massachusetts has a state income tax florida's not have state income tax right. So if we're going to do something like this maybe it makes sense to wait. Wait until florida's your primary residence and if the tax rates are still to your advantage then let let's look at it at that point but why pay that extra five plus percent in taxes and then move down to florida where they didn't have taxes in the first place so that's another. Major reason is is having a little bit of proactive forward. Thinking as to what's going to happen in your world and unfortunately there's too many people out there who were in my field that will just look at today or look if you know the next six months just because they want to get a new client An don't get me wrong. This plenty of really buying up people out there that do a fabulous job at but yet you can't be shortsighted in making these decisions because it's difficult to reverse these transactional you're you're in it for the long term with with your clients you've grown up with them. They've grown up with you. You now know their grandchildren. They know your children. I mean that's been the watch word up one of the things before you run through a few more of these Important considerations what you're talking about and what we talk about regularly is empowering people in retirement. People have more wiggle room. That's kind of a funny way to put it. But they have more power and more choices to make than they might have had during their work life. Oh absolutely i mean like. I said this right at the beginning my dad. He left college and he went in a granted. I'm from another country but he left. College went and took a job entry level position in guinness brewing company and works that job his whole career and retired out of that job granted. He started his own company. Acid up with his whole career was with one company and when he retired he had a pension plan and he had the irish equivalent of social security. And that was this But that was normal back then right. My dad's almost eighty so that was normal back then at that was normal in america from what i understand right. Social security and ninety companies had pension plans absolutely no. that's not the norm. There's a million different choices. I used this analogy year ago. We talked about davos. Reminded me that. The cheesecake factory's in braintree fayza as well you ever look at the menu in the cheesecake factory So overwhelming that. I almost don't want to go gone with the wind. It's gone with the wind to me. It's so much robbie's so it's the same in the financial world is there's a million different financial strategy of million different types of products is a million different investments that you can go into and they continue to evolve. They continue to get more sophisticated. Better safeguards in place that could just continue to change as time goes by so even if you have financial strategy that you put in place it probably behooves you to just take a look and get a second opinion to see if it makes sense to make any changes and if it doesn't shirt isn't that a good thing right. Don't you feel when you feel good about yourself having it reaffirmed by somebody else say that you're on track. I would love for you to sort of point a few more of the reasons why you might be wary of the roth you. You've to beautifully. We don't have a whole lot of time left. But i think people would love just a a thumbnail yet so i mean always the obvious one is that you don't have enough money outside of the ira to pay taxes of these. You can use the ira to pay the taxes but that kind of sets you behind the eight ball to a certain degree. So ideally at somebody who's got a lot of money sitting in cash or cd's that aren't really making a huge amount of interest but they're already after tax monies we use that to pay the taxes Another reason to potentially not do a roth. Conversion is if you need that money within five years if you need to start using that money within five years as a five year rule with roth conversions roth. Ira's you have to let the money sit in there from five years. That rule is difficult to understand for some folks. The ruled is five years from the point. That you started your first roth. Ira not five years from the point that you convert each roth ira so you might have one from the eighties that you put fifty bucks into. That's your starting point Another reason to potentially not do. It is if you plan to leave the ira to charity. I have a lot of clients. And i met with the lady. Recently who has some grand nieces and nephews doesn't have any children was never married school them a bit of money but she wants to leave money to a pretty significant Cancer organization for children so leaving. Ira money to a charity versus roth. Ira money to a charity. You're leaving the more money if you leave them the ira because they don't really have to pay taxes on this anyway. So that's a reason to not potentially do that I i guess if your beneficiaries If your beneficiaries are in a lower tax bracket than you are likely to be in a lower tax bracket than you are going forward will then it might make sense is leave it to them the way it is because they'll pay less taxes than you'll pay on it writing a huge weeks into not do secure and then the obvious one is if you're estate isn't large enough. You can't categorically no that you don't need this money for yourself In the near future. Then maybe it doesn't make sense to do this different types of taxes you don't wanna create tax liabilities. That were avoidable by right transitioning from a traditional ira to rob theory but the big. The big thing is everyone's situation is different. And that's why we sit down with folks on weed out whether this strategy among all of the strategies that are available which is almost endless at what makes the most sense because it's so overwhelming that a lot of times people just buried their head in the sand and do the worst thing that you can do is do nothing now. I know you very well. And i also know you get such a charge of helping people a kick out of helping people because this is a very creative service that is provided in other words. I come in. I might be the perfect guy to convert to a roth right now and then. Three other clients on tuesday might be just the opposite. And that's you feel them as they come and you and you're you're looking at each in each individual case and why. Why wouldn't everybody do that. They don't but I'm glad that you do and we reinforce that. Every time out i think unfortunately roth. Conversions has the criminal that flavor of the month right now. Yellen address it. If this the opportunity to help client and help them alleviate future tax liabilities and and in turn give them better returns yet we wanna bring it up but no to cases are same most of our clients a lot of similarities because of the same sort of pliant. Either somebody who's getting ready or has already retirement but everyone's situation was unique so we wanted to lay it out on an have an individual strategy for each client or each couple that we work with at raf makes sense. Roth conversion makes sense. Yeah let's talk about it. If it doesn't make sense we'll explain it was make sense. I think it's important to consider both sides here when you're looking at the website retires south shore dot com has much more in by the way on tuesday of this week at eleven. Am that's alive webinar. Mark you'll be hosting that on taxes on retirement and the roth. Ira will certainly be a topic of conversation. I trust yeah. I think a lot of people are concerned about.

And it's gonna it's gonna it's gonna not necessarily the diet. I don't think that at all but but it's going to help.

"As well locus control. Avoid feeling lost of control in the age of the corona virus. A lot of us are few out of control even stuck in paralyzed because the corona virus. I seen it firsthand today. People are losing their minds. I seen it. I haven't seen anything like it. I was out shopping earlier. Tended to pick up usual provision for the week. You know breakfast launch stuff. For the week and holy cow it was a sight to behold. There's literally no produce no meat to be found. It looked like Venezuela on a good day. Not only that people were having this very weird fetish toilet paper. I can't find a shred of anywhere in the city. I guess those few of us that have been saving those Free Napkins from seven eleven and Quick Look Pretty Smart. Right about now anyway. This is what happens when people feel control. They lose their normal their normalcy bias. The sneaky little virus has totally caught us off guard and it's causing us to feel out of control making us do irrational strange things. Like buying one hundred seventy two rolls of toilet paper and half aside. A beef is just an outsider's observation. If you need that much toilet paper you may have wanted to consider checking yourself into a hospital a little bit before. This corona virus thing kicked off. So what can we do when we feel like? We have no control the two reasons that can make us feel out of control or stuck the first one is believing you should be able to control or influence anything. The number one rule to remember is that you can't control or influence anything that is just not a thing. In fact you attempt is you're going to be very unhappy in an angry person. This will leave you frustrated. Infringes I know. Trust me the best thing you can do is step back. Take a deep breath. Relax for a second acknowledged the situation for what it is and move on. You'll be much happier and enjoyable person to be around. The second thing that makes most of us feel like we have. No control is the opposite. It is believing you have no control at all. This makes you feel as if no matter what you do. The our forces. They'd be keep you down that you have no power to make a difference. These things are known as control. Fallacies control foul cities are what we call cognitive distortions which basically a fancy way of saying a faulty way your brain things were the actually believe something to be true. Would it really isn't now. That moves us to the locus of control. Now what is that? Well it was created by this dude named Julian rotter in nineteen sixty six. It was created as a personality test to assess the extent of which an individual possesses internal or external reinforcement beliefs. This other guy named Terry Pettijohn. He developed an actual test for it and is to recall survey and went ahead. I posted it right up underneath here and you can discover what your local of control is. It will help you decide if you're internally or externally provoked now there's three levels of influence and we all have them. The first level is what's called the internal circle and this includes aspects of our lives that are within our direct control and the three levels of influence. There are three things that are in our direct control the first to our thoughts and emotions these to lead to the third and that is what's what we what we choose to do our choices. These the only three things that we can control. These things are very internal to us. The next would be the external circle and this includes things that you're not in control of all some examples. Would some examples of this would be like the economy every person on the planet the Environment? And there's others. I think you get the gist of it. I WANNA save you a lot of time and effort here so read this carefully. You have no influence or control over any aspect of these things. Do not waste your time trying. The second ring of influence this circle contains aspects of life somewhere in between both of those. This is where we all want and need to be. This is healthy area in this where we all need to be in the economy for instance. You can't control the stock market in a whole. Obviously but you can control your personal economy. You can get better at your job. You can make yourself more employable another example. I like to use his politics. You can't really control the federal government but you can't vote so we do have a small influence in that area. The third example. I'd like to use the environment. You can't control the entire world however you can control your personal carbon footprint and you can control how your environment is dealt with. This can make you feel in control which is a good thing. The last example here is other people you can not at all control them you can. To an extent have a slight influence on people who are really close to you. But your brother your wife or your lifelong friends etcetera these are as a friendly reminder. I would like you should really try to avoid this type of level of influence with your friends and your family if you can this can get really messy really fast. If you're not careful it's there are things that are real touchy and people. Don't like to be the feel pressured. I guess for lack of a better word. I really hope that these brief informative quirks will help you overcome feeling lost or out of control. And don't forget to take the locus of control survey to find out what kind of person you actually are on a side. Note the next few weeks here in the. Us are going to be rough. Let's all try to support one another. Lend a helping hand to our friends and neighbors and that would be affected by the Social Enviro turmoil. Be Safe and thanks so much for reading..
"south" Discussed on Playerz From The South
"You're talking about the differences in the south. I'm sure there had to be some type of catalyst for getting records on the radio down here. How did that happen? How did the masses of fans started begin? Will we'll build in other places okay now. This was the process. But let me let me see if you can follow me from the early ninety s up through the mid nineties. Black radio was started to transition from from a Geordie. R&B format to open doors to more traditional rap. Music hip hop was making a lot of money by this time but still just scratching the surface southern rap along the Gulf of course was largely independent and it was a freedom to speak about whatever you wanted so radio wasn't accepting to it. In my opinion it was. Dj Greg Street in Atlanta and opened the door begin again a bridge that divide that hot summer ninety six it opened the floodgates for several rappers to get consistent radio play by that time you had eight ball and j g masterpiece and his family. You G K will already underground kings. They were all doing collaborations with each other. I don't think I started to pop to like a couple years later. Like on the National Level Greg Grant Street was breaking all this shit on top. Eight was probably the first time ever. The whole eight will be filled with just southern artists. I'll cast spirited that new movie coming out. Atlanta would soulful Cadillac music and not a golf course was coming with that ghetto dope boy funk and Greg Street blended that different southern cultures perfectly. I remember Greg Street. Yeah so what about Jack. The rapper. What makes that time so influential for you and your crew it was the camaraderie rebuilt not only with each other but it was the beginning of a brotherhood we built with the best of the best? Not only from down here either. The East Coast has some dudes who accepted us in the West Coast has accepted us not all but some we took that business trip was able to make business connections and friendships for a lifetime. We have so many forces against us but we kept on working and had to grind for south first and foremost foremost at that particular convention. We had the chance to see everybody who was about to contribute to. What's known as the Golden Era and hip hop Wu? Tang was there mob deep. Big Big Part Busta Gour premier nine hundred. Ninety four may have been golden era as a whole but I think ours came in ninety six. We were so late into the party but arrived arrive right all the time that makes any sense it makes sense but with east coast artists already having gold and platinum status by the mid nineties. Southern rap was still in its formative years. How was your level of success measured at this time in comparison to the present? Well if I remember correctly the diary sorry what platinum in Nineteen ninety-four dope ass album by one of the hip hop most eloquent lyricists scarface with the exception of releases by affiliated ghetto. Board members miss the south still hadn't started to consistently put up those numbers yet but by ninety six we started that breakthrough regular radio rotation finally rap city top ten. We'll be seeing nationally now. Outcasts opened the door for the South being a successful act that could be marketed to the world. The Gulf coast was still on the independence shit though but but finally breaking through the limitations of Regional Distribution When you G K released Ryan dirty set a standard for southern rap masterpiece go with ice cream man as a small dusty label who released two albums in the second quarter of ninety. Six BB is debut album hit. The highway went on sale over three hundred thousand units with the grassroots fan base. We had to spend a little more money on marketing. A royal sees project his self titled Debut Sold About One hundred eighty thousand and was truly ahead of his time very groundbreaking groundbreaking. It was these two releases that landed us a distribution deal with the major and that's went down south Pibor productions became Magnolia Music Inc.. We signed a joint adventure early ninety seven and never looked back. It wasn't a seamless transition though the whole entertainment industry was about to get rocked to court and nobody got hurt more than hip hop culture. I've heard a clear line of separation is used when people compare these eras. What does it do? You think that affected hip hop as a whole during this time. Always say the greatest gift and curse to not just heal up but black culture in general was the Clinton Communications Act of one thousand nine hundred six. It made us sick and we're still able to get will. Bill was this some type of legislation by Bill Clinton and his goons. How did President Clinton effect what you were doing rap when people say this was the beginning of the end and do you think this was accurate? Yeah I think goons was the right word to use. But you know there's no other way to approach this but to say we were doing from the start. What what happened was bill? Clinton was in office as President of the United States at that time signed into law. Communications Act which was largely meant to deregulate the telecommunications the industry would it did consequently was loosened restrictions on mega corporations owning huge slices of media empires radio stations. TV networks we bought and consolidating into a parent company with new major interest in keeping their culture alive. They got a board of directors who only saw bottom line. How do you think all this affected hip hop as a whole for one with this created was a situation where he has a publicly traded liquor lumber even candy company could acquire a major label and a network network of urban radio stations in major markets and please programmers limited knowledge of how to move a crowd in positions of power? Just keep the bullshitting rotation. Keep the abortion in rotation program masses. You see what you have. What was known as the big six? The major label families were Sony Columbia. MCA UNIVERSAL BMG. RCA EMI capital Warner and polygram it all but killed the phenomenon of indie label. What had become in the south? I see where he's going with this. So what you're saying is the Clinton Act brought about this slow certain death to the culture being grain music. We listen to what we're forcing. I get that the environment became too controlled mucked up and money. That's exactly what I mean. When I say shit went off the rails instead of owning our own culture and being creative innovators? We started to applaud the fiction. Accept Anything and anybody bt now had to push whatever agenda The parent company wanted them to push regardless. If the ideology edgy are images would be cool with the people you realize that eighty five percent of information we take in is controlled by three or four companies essentially that takeover was a monopoly for your your mind and your spirit as long as corporations had the money to promote the bullshit it was going to sail to a watered-down audience that real shit was becoming less visible but nine hundred ninety Lina. I knew I wanted to get out and had to plan an exit strategy. That took me four years to execute people like you you become well respected just by a lot of moves that you've made eight inside and outside the music business. I know you've always kept family old associates around you. who was the crew in? What role did they play in your plans to make something from? I'm essentially nothing early on all we had was a home phone beepers and Effects Machine at my Mama House Way it turned out Mama will watch the fax machine. It should usually book. The show's uncle was road manager. And he had a right hand man who would always watches Beck. His security detail became a one man security team. His name was Kareem Green and they met in the pin years earlier. Korean was about six foot. One in about two hundred and forty pounds built like a linebacker in the league. You know what I'm saying but he was a convicted felon. He couldn't own or even carry on person but nobody had to know that he was forceful with his words. In a calm way to let you know he wouldn't about no punks it then. Vinh Cortez was always around as Rhody Barber. He carried crates for the rule. Dj whose name was IRV. Scratch the you know my cousin J up of course produced all records. He was with us all the time too. There was a method of a white dude named Zach. I think you referred to him as White Zach. Oh Yeah Yeah. Yeah can't forget his crazy as me as I got Cooler Hula Catholic school I went to. He came from money and always wanted to be down with anything wrap related he could quote classic lines with the best of them. You know he was a real student at a game and just wanted to be down so I made him director street promotions for the label by then our first three Axworthy Rossi and a wild pair of twins named the hard heads they it became our first major label release by this time. Jamal was in zone. The first album south stories sold over four million and with tomato production. He started to get calls from all over the map. He started doing sessions with the biggest names in a game. That time man. We all grew up together. Feels like you've faced an insane amount of pressure as the young men of color starting a hardcore rap label in the South Ninety five. Now you're a multimillionaire and you've made a fortune real estate holdings capital investments. But some. Some people might rest their laurels and consider themselves success and just quit retire completely. And what ways are you still active in the music business. Also where are the Murals Bureau of you in your own city. It seems like you'd be more beloved in the city that helped put you on. The map was the deal earlier. When I was talking about the haves and have-nots well see we from the hood not expected to do much? I want perfect growing up but I do want to get out of here and help the ones who couldn't get out with me me. I bought land redevelop property and had beautification projects enacted our barber shop and a learning center on the same side of town. I grew up on every time we started the bill. Momentum we faced a setback or two Dilawar red tape from City Hall. You know. I've got friends on the city council. Who knew how to push through when it needs to be but man? We're in a time. Where black political leaders pandered to an ignorant voting base or to concern with catchy slogans rather than the system of checks and balances that regulate when shit get.
"south" Discussed on Playerz From The South
"At this time. Was your uncle Soom picture. Did He fund the early growth growth stages of your business Earlier you mentioned a soft leather black Duffel bag with orange stitching. Have that come into play. Usually live with Michael made moves see. He worked by color cool to leave no doubt about what was money and what was product. He had a soft leather black duffel bag with orange stitching. That always had that new car smell too. You know what I'm saying. That was usually his drop off bag that had product. His pickup bag was dark rid. Anytime he picked up money it was stuffed in his red bag tortillas knew it we studied all his moves. I think it was maybe August of ninety four or something like that. It was a wisden night uncle. bocom a Momma House to tell tell me and my brother two packs and close for two or three days. He wanted us to make a trip to Atlanta with him. And we'll be leaving Friday morning. We knew as long as we went with him. Who will have to worry About no money on nothing like that so I told him we'd be ready. Marco always moves silently and his temperament alone spoke volumes. I knew something big was about to happen happened. Just because he wanted us on that trip we knew he had a Dominican connection to the east coast in Atlanta. He would meet him about three times a year but this time it felt different. What do you mean different different? Did he usually include in Cortez on his out of town trip. Hell no mama would kill his ass. That's my mom's baby brother and only six years older than me. He put us up on street game and be an honorable as a man should but he kept all his dirty dealings away from us. He wanted better and made us do better that Friday morning. He pulled up to my Mama's house and allowed on minivan. Maybe a Ford Aerostar. He wrote down his window and told us through our bags in the Cobra. Here behind behind the rear seat as soon as I open the cargo door I noticed the soft leather black Duffel bag with orange stitching. I said. Oh what's this he. Roll down a window. No one had turned down in music told me to look inside before I got a good grass with a bag. Cortez side sliding door. The van and Jamal was sitting in the rear roll. Oh middle seat me and Cortez both saw at the same time. What we said almost forgot about the black Duffel bag when I saw my cousin finally Okubo told me what was going on? I just started to UNZIP the bag. He said we'RE GONNA Atlanta for Jack. The rapper check us in the bag. Who Was Jack the rapper? And what did you finally find a black Duffel bag man check this out. I found full color postcards. Eight by ten black and White Promo pictures business business cards with a new logo for down south. Be Bored without me knowing. He has Jamal for some demos that we have recorded. He got three song. Demo cassettes pressed up shrink shrink wrap with my beeper number as the contact info we had demos for. BBI An royal seat. Jamal has special demos for himself. That was called a sample tate was some of his beasts that he was trying to sell. We had four promotional package and we were going to Atlanta for Jack the rapper that was one of the mini institutions that black music tribute to the official name was a family affair and it was the oldest and largest black radio. Oh convention in this country Jack. The Rapper Gibson was the legendary disc jockey and pioneer of black radio and founded the annual convention by the time the early nineties came wrapped rap and rappers. Were everywhere just trying to get on and Jack Nra Convention became a haven for anybody trying to be heard on network with other artists producers labels and the light man. This is the time when you had to do leg work and know how to talk to people from other regions and just showing you just like they do. Who Am I the truth to Atlanta for Jack there ever was? Was it just you Cortez. Bow and Jamal what. I'd really like to know how you guys were received at the convention. And did you feel sort of this southern biased against you since the east coast was really killing it at the time man. We did a lot of building in binding on a trip. It was me Cortes Jamal and uncle. Oh Boo a rental van. From the moment we love my Mama's house until we got to the. No uncle bowl must played that new huge three times back to back to back super tight edges drop and it was a game changer. For the south on the way we had to stop in New Orleans to pick up royal seat and be traveling with enforcements so they wanted to ride with the crew until separate from us. They wanted to meet us there so it was all good and the time. I didn't even realize what reinforcements were needed for radio convention but I would find out earlier. You mentioned something about an obvious bias. Like from the beginning. Do you feel that there was a biased against you guys from the South who just wanted to wrap whether it was conscious subconscious. Did you feel any type of backlash by no means was rat mainstream at the time however New York had it on lock since the beginning and the West West Coast had traditional. MC's then they had rappers who spit gang culture. What was the south as a whole offering up at the time what earlier you brought up the hip hop media you remember Knbr that via okay let me tell you about the hip hop media from the get-go I think they were fundamentally wrong? How they covered us and never cared about correcting the wrong? You are retracting anything in error. Done to stand the south. I understand this. Yeah we are all the same and bonded like brothers because over the years we bill relationships with each other who are treated like outsiders so we stayed outside the box and just made music man. You see when People WanNa talk about rap and hip hop all we. We had back in the eighties was the same artist that was showcased to everybody. We respected the music as an art form because spoke to us the same way as spoke to them of their naturally. Actually as New York being the first to do it we absorb it because it was street. I use the term southern rap only for reference ache when explaining where rapper might be from but never exclude Ludi. Uh us from the whole ball of wax. Yeah we might all be from the south but we don't all act talk think alike for anybody in the media wanted to just do their job. Only had to do was pay attention. Attention was considered the south is vast region and within hip hop. You may have had kinship with other people from the South based on misconceptions. Taste the difference. Okay here you hip hop started from New York and naturally migrated. That's the sound of my generation to other places and with Houston being the largest urban center in the south. It's only right. That route would come from ace towns as they had more resources and talent than anybody else at the time meaning they have more money facilities in a bigger talent pool to work with was the game got bigger and Houston is spray right down. I tend into the rest of the Gulf coast man. I can't even explain the way I felt when I first heard ghetto boy grip it on that other level album. We finally had him season. South from the Gulf coast. As the sound progress New Orleans gotten a game Atlanta gotten a game Memphis has gotten a game Jackson Birmingham. You see what North Carolina's doing right. Now they're killing it. We all might be from the same geographic region but the sound and styles so so different and they vary based on your ancestors. Whoa this is getting deep? Can you expand on that. Sure all right. New York is the birthplace piece of culture name hip hop that produce an element called rat if you ask any New Yorker about their bloodline more times than not they come from the south with some kind of musical history. Lena lineage. That's a fact. New York was fly because they got that swing. If you WANNA like Mr Jazz the way they move flow the dialect accent accent. They spoke with an eighties and nineties. It works for them. Houston is more slow down everything. Slow down well. Even if they rapin fast still seem slowing laid back. You GotTa ride and Listening Today Museum. And it's dope to not New Orleans got many different facets to the way they do things but for one. They've got that bounce. Of course New York got that swing New Orleans got that bounce is UPTEMPO aggressive all in your face is Volker and crass but the Shit is beautiful and let it has a funk that coordinated with the attitude of old Atlanta they used to have their own style of Bass music that was independent of Miami but still had that Miami influence is slow down to a player's crawling sits right in the Middle Memphis. Has that fight club. Gangsta Chant Gangsta. Walk feel Oh and also that slow gangster ride music was dope about. We were all able to use all these different influences coming from our ancestors and our southern regions and put it in salt form for over some holiday as he'll pop beats you're right. I agree in the sense that you guys were conscious enough to show respect and have your little caveat to the essence of the music but you still managed to fostering cultivate your own sound or whatever you wanted to do in your own way for anyone who ever wanted to criticize the south for lyrics. The criticism accolades are all a matter of perspective. One thing that can never be criticized. was that banging asked production in all went together perfectly. Well you asked earlier What was the south offering at the time? What does south was offering was music and a whole lot of creativity? We hear guys like in. Oh Joe Pepsi Mannie fresh beach bottle pound organiz noise out of at L.. I guess you had to be around at times quite comprehend. You had young kids in the southwest so for influences from the previous. CBS generation's music. The summer ninety six it was magical. It was hot down here. That whole psalm consistent kind of heat when you get out of your car and you see atmosphere for in front of you was waving don't heatwaves. That's what I'm talking about. It was hot violent and we was broke and coming of age. The music painted a picture of our lives. It reflected how we we lived out here and rappers didn't mind.

"Tell me about the other side of the aisle for lack of better term but it no better. I'd say you referring to a class system of a sort okay. We'll check this out and its ideology. I consider has as a representation of all money elite status and Black Society generations generations deep in political power which in turn creates friendships was very influential people. This place has a reputation for being a haven of black enterprise politics in education but there are some secrets that come with that status. You know the story about the airport if not check this out back. In the same year I was born nineteen nineteen seventy-three. The city had just elected his first black mayor. He was young and exuberant. He ran on a platform bring equal opportunity for minority contractors in the city coincidentally the airport was on the verge of being expanded and was the largest municipal construction job in the south at the time. The percentages of minority owned firms with city contracts at that time was laughable. The new mayor filled the only way to sort of smooth out. The plan feel was to mandate that twenty five percent of airport contracts to minority firms that particular contract and program was controversial at that time but it gets credit would pop in billions of dollars of money in the black offers in turn created many black millionaires and expanding expanding a wide reaching black middle and upper class must city was the big league. Took this all. Sounds like something to be proud of a spirit of entrepreneurship. Like no other place to me. It sounds like a perfect place for somebody. To succeed with. That determination makes with a little bit of blind ambition. Is that a mischaracterization characterization. What became the downside of having all that black commerce flowing through? Let me guess. Well what happened was naturally a door was open for corruption Russian. We can't do shit right. That airport has become a cash. Grab a politically connected. Insiders business owners looking for a leg up and more notably a funding mechanism for will oil black political machine. That will do anything to remove anybody from standing in their way. They all stick together to an elite. Social Black Class of folks arose rules from this over time and through generations we see the same black families and political power or maintaining a status in keeping with that old airport money. These these are the haves they know we exist but only came to us out of town for media relations. NPR How about this one. We now have a first black female mayor here along with the majority Black City Council. But we can't get a damn crosswalk in who is for these babies to cross the street. The city goes out of the way to spend fifty thousand on the Rainbow aimable crosswalk in the gay community but young black kids still can't safely cross the street in a city they were born in. What part of the game is dead? So how did all this influence you and what you've accomplished in the entertainment world and consequently business. I found that the lifetime achievement awards are given to just anybody with a few good ideas. Was it that. Set your wheels in motion. well as I said I started out managing my cousin from Houston Jamal. He was my first client where I really started getting a taste of the business. You know that early in the game I wasn't exactly sure who are what a manager was but experienced became my best teacher see. Jamal was a DJ started to get a little noticed throughout the city so once the words bread we was able to go up and down the highway and make low money and meet people. We started to build a little network show promoters vert promoters radio people. Dj's anybody from down South who was trying to make it pop. We just want to be down with him. My cousin was dope on the tables to those technique twelve hunters at first. When I was trying to decide what I wanted to do I was going to be a DJ but my coordination was never that good enough to get that down? That's why show hip Bob. Dj's the highest respect today that's the backbone of the culture. Them cats are disciplined an precise so the way it all started is that you as a DJ he jay in training. What kind of equipment did you start on? Why did you ultimately choose to let Jamal go that route? I never got past the training stays Man Marco Marco Bode took me to a pawnshop bought me my first pieces of equipment. We had to technique twelve hundred turntables. Jim Nine mix like used to see advertising in the magazines like source and rampages nasty microphone and a few creates a dusty records. We got that when I was about. Nineteen or twenty but it didn't last long long. Maybe about nine months ten months like that. I kept getting frustrated at the technical side of the making the music so I figured I would just handle the administrative side. You know the business side died so markle's said it was cool to pass on equipment to Jamal. Some we were trying to build together anyway so one weekend we packed up and made a drive the Houston so let my cousin get Being that you weren't in the same city. What kind of challenges did this pose? Assuming you're making it a ton of money. At this time Man Marco Bo had a sixty seven Mustang purple candy pain White Leather Interior sitting altruism vogues. It fit him to fit his personality to t he would never let us take that trip in that car so he will let us ride in his impala. That's how it was not that. Many people was wrapping down here. I was trying to get into rap hip-hop so whenever you did beat somebody who did music or something that you need it. You didn't mind traveling between New Orleans and Houston. We had all the stops on interstate. Ten and one point. We was on the highway. Maybe twice mice a week with the music thing ambitious all we had if you wanted to meet the best and experience the best of what we was doing down here you had to travel a lot of us in the south come from the musical backgrounds which is needed to leak up and make it happen. You know what I'm saying. You already mentioned that your data Jamal's remember funk side can you explain the culture and a musical heritage in this region absolutely see. I have a French last name. Okay there were black creoles who spoke French down in lower prairie region of South Louisiana. These people ended up producing a Shitload of music on different ends of the spectrum. All kinds of music man. I grew up here in all Cajun. Two step which is called ZYDECO. Uh Blues Traditional New Orleans jazz which I was always partial to a piano jazz clarinet but I had a couple of article artists in my blood. I guess I can credit credit that to my appreciation for as long as you don't a lot of got down here. I'm pretty proud to say so Jamal. John was known as a Recu. Are you familiar with that. Not really but I'm all ears. Okay all right so if you were a DJ before the digital age each of transferring a file you actually had to leave the house and go get your music. You could pay a membership fee to a record pool and whenever they got new promotional material in from the labels mostly mostly twelve inch singles stickers and stuff like that you would show up to the record pool at ease. These ahead with a mailbox are cubbyhole dedicated to him. That would have new records records and everything already in the box. Eight million so Jamal was getting all these records and started using besides terminals to record demos for some local. MC's all he used at at the time the turntables the Mike Instrumentals keep in mind. He wasn't opening up for bigger name. DJ's no more. He started to hear line so a little bit more money was coming in. I know eventually you would have to make a move to multi track recording so I saved up my managers. Take from our from our gigs and bought a new test. Cam for track record to Ed to Jamal's home studio so now at this point we had two turntables a might the Sonic Asr ten keyboard that mixer and a task him for trek trek down. South bebop productions was born next. All we needed was the talent who was your first client. DSP was J. Tom Exactly Yeah. That was them cousin so he had to be my first client. You know I manage him as a producer and Dj then. He brought me to acts one that he had already started working with a group name. BBI I big Boys Inc who were suppo and Solo. Rapper named royal seat behind was legendary down here man. It was tour too big due to drove big. Cars made a big money in the streets. They want necessarily polished as artists but they knew the streets would feel them because they were authentic as artists they would evolve into something much bigger over time. They talked a lot of Gangsta. Shit they talk the Pill Shit but lyrically. They became great southern rap artists in Jilin speaking overlooked as one of the best groups of all time time now royal see. He was a young dude from the projects in New Orleans. He was a visionary on a Mike. ECO paint a picture of ghetto life. In a four minute song. He used the pin in a pair to get him out of his situation. He was always intelligent. But had a grimy side that would show itself into studio work ethic was crazy. And that's why I'm not surprised to see what he's still accomplishing the date and that was team. How are those early days as a manager? We know in every good story. There has been agitator given the limits you had to work within then twenty five years ago. What would you say became your greatest obstacle to success very good question simply because my answer would only be perception as a man I would never give another man credit for obstructed my view or hindering my movement the biggest hurdle for any human their mind so with that being said people's perception exception of with the south was and still? Today the media had the power at least alter that perception but instead they fed the flames if quote unquote real hip pop was about authenticity and keeping shit real. Then why is it a problem to let your art reflect your surroundings only when it comes to us and I record. We talked about the same stuff as new dog. Did and the same stuff as Los Angeles did and debate. We just did it in our way for some reason that rubbed a lot of people the wrong way. Do you believe the media could have have played a role in squashing stereotypes. Absolutely look man. It's not that hard to figure. Now I think the hip hop media as miniscule as it was at the time had a god complex and probably still do they can make you break you or make you insignificant with something as simple as you album review as an artist you wanted that press but it is almost like damn it ain't even worth it. What Luke Skywalker did in Miami and what they did down here on? The Gulf coast was monumental man. I wish more people would put it in perspective. The whole Matrix existed outside of southern rap. And we weren't invited so instead of playing by the rules the game took a turn and as youngsters we follow that blueprint Eh. They were young black independent and had a love for hardcore rap in the south would next generation that come up after them and we were just learning a cockatiel independent game we learn early on and we can make dough pass music and Garner a fan base than as an artist on an independent label. You would make more money than you would on a major so we set out to produce and release our debut album on down south people. The first project will be the self titled Album of BBC. Dolly problem was she. We didn't have the money and we needed for president. President Manufacturing Marketing Promotions..

"Real education. There are tons of stories about very successful people that have little to no schooling at all yet, they invented or discover something fantastic. Henry Ford comes to mind. I'm going to be a bit selfish and myself in here, not because of done anything special other than live this method of learning, and it works. I'm a veteran of the greatest air force is planning to ever seen when I was in basic training. It was just that basic then off the tech school. It is just like it sounds technical. This is where we learn our AFC or job after tech school, you enter the real air force as a young airman. I was ready to change the world. Just let me add them now, so fast young one that's fast. What was my first job in the real air force learning how to use our technical data system, this system is where every job that is performed on my aircraft and is written down in word instamatic forms. This is my job for the first two months on station reason. If I as a new troupe was left alone on shift with. No supervisor is a three level can still navigate through a job. I was unfamiliar with why. Because I had the general knowledge to know where to find the specific knowledge I needed now after sixty days on the job, I am at least competent enough to be self sufficient, allowing me as a new airman to be less alone to tackle any task that may come up recognizing as I read the story of Henry Ford that I had been taught and used the same technique. I can assure you this method of education is far superior to what we are putting out in public schools today. Thanks for watching please
"south" Discussed on South Of Richardson
"Memorial Day, a click reminder here, just a few facts about Memorial Day. I thought we should remember decorations day some historians say the decoration day is what not what we now call Memorial Day in the south mainly in the mountain regions, decoration day is still recognized in these rare occasions. It is usually a family owned graveyard. These family owned graveyards hold the remains of family ancestors from long ago, fought wars, and much more. Recent ones as well. The celebration is a lot like today's more modern Memorial Day. In fact, the turn potluck Dhiraj from decoration day, celebrations Memorial Day moral, they was first used in eighteen eighty two it was officially adopted in nineteen sixty seven however, this slowly option in the tournament Morial day, began right after World War, Two Memorial Day became the awesome three day weekend. We all know in love when congress passed the uniform Monday holiday act in nineteen sixty eight the modern day holiday, the twenty first. Century version of this great and important day has lost his lesser for most vets in two thousand and two the VFW put out a statement, changing the date merely to create three day, weekends has undermined the very meaning of the day, no doubt this has contributed a lot to the general public's nonchalant observance of Memorial Day, congress passed the national moment of remembrance. This Bill suggests that people stop fifteen hundred or three PM and observe a moment of silence for our fallen soldiers as the flag is raised on the morning of Memorial Day. It is briskly raised to the top of the staff. And then slowly and solemnly dropped to half staff, only until noon as vet I do take this holiday, a little more seriously than most. I am not asking people not to have fun and enjoy the beginning of summer, I would just like people to remember why they are eating burnt barbecue, and drinking lukewarm beer, and maybe just maybe a fifteen hundred or three PM. We could have just a moment. Silence. For the brave. Men and women that had died to give you freedom to enjoy this great country. Thanks for watching, and please can share.
