This project reached over 400,000 people easily and I was glad to be a part of it.
Before DJ Smallz got T.I. to host it, Caskey (who just got signed to Cash Money was supposed to). They switched it out at the last minute.
I got connected with DJ Smallz through a PR lady named Jessica Williams (at South Promo) I hired, who was working on a campaign for me. I initially paid her to get me a Wikipedia page and to use her connections to get me on blogs like XXL and The Source (which she didn’t deliver on any of them).
After she connected me with Smallz, I had to pay another fee just to get on this project “This That Southern Smoke Vol. 2.”
In the end, I got the exposure, but I’d never deal with her again… Come to find out, I could have got connected with Smallz myself directly through his website.
But uh, Track #23 is me. Yung B from Farlin – $hittin’ On The Game
