Beat Lounge Beat Battles (BLBB) has been an event that has showcased producers of various talent levels. The beat battles usually took place in Cincinnati and now that basic formatted event will move to Columbus, OH. More changes were discussed at the BLBB Press Conference held today at 3PM. Realizing the talent the beat battles produce, the BLBB wants to garner more coverage, prominence and prestige for their talent. A sweet-16 bracket style competition that results in a big quarterly showdown will be the battle everyone works for. BLBB is ensuring that every participant in the battle will be able to have promotional backing in addition to being exposed to those who can take their craft to the next level. Why did BLBB want to institute these changes? "People need to step their game up. If my team don't hold me accountable, no one will," stated Kontrax the BLBB host. BLBB wants producers to be able to put professionalism behind their profession. Will the producers live up to these desired expectations?

"Can't" is a word often used in most people's vocabularies. "You can't be this, it won't make you any money." "I can't see why you would want to do that, it's just not possible." Now more than ever we need to inspire our youth. We need to help them pursue their dreams and encourage them to be future examples for the next generation. B.O.S.S. (Be your Own Success Story) is an e-magazine created to give insight and direction for minority youth. The magazine has quite a few young adult contributors. The magazine is filled with interviews of successful entrepreneurs and college tips. I wrote an article in there entitled "Are You Ready" that discusses sexual health. I may not be be able to take the word "can't" out of your vocabulary but I urge you to read and be empowered by this epic magazine!
