9th Annual Coalition DJ’s Anniversary Party


9th Annual Coalition DJ’s Anniversary Party

On Monday, January 23, 2017, The Coalition DJ’s ATL held their 9th Annual Anniversary party.

The Coalitions DJ’s ATL has been noticed as being the #1 DJ Crew in the world. The compilation of different DJs has broke records for artist like Young Jeezy, TI, Future, Migos, 2 Chainz, and more.

The party began after many people who have been in the industry for multiple years held a music industry longevity panel. The panel featured guests: Richard Wingo (Jagged Edge), Kawan “KP” Prather (Producer), DJ Toomp (Producer), Gregory Smith (SESAC), Jason Boyd (Songwriter), Kwanza Hall (2017 Atlanta Mayoral Candidate), and more.

There was an abundance of up and coming artist in the venue who was taking in most of the knowledge that was given by the panel to learn about lasting in the business. Many of the panelist agreed that the key to longevity in the music industry is basically learning and mastering the business side to music.

“It’s the business of music and not the music business. Get into the mindset of doing 80% business and 20% music”, stated Wingo.

Most of the artist who was on the panel informed the audience that they were bamboozled out of potential money they should have earned in the beginning of their career. They pushed every rapper, singer, producer, and writer to always read and analyze their split sheet before signing anything so they can get a reasonable percentage of their profit they deserve.

They also were telling the audience that you have to always want to keep learning something new in the business. It was stated that there are only two ways to pay for your education. You can either pay for it with money or pay for it with your mistakes.

Another lesson they gave to the audience was to always keep making and keeping new relationships with people who want to win just like you. Most of the panelist gave stories how they started off doing one job and through a relationship with the right person, they were able to elevate themselves to a better position.

Overall the panel was a success and all of the successful men gave much knowledge to help any artist in the audience succeed in their paths of life.

After the panel ended, the party kicked off and artist like Migos, Future, B.O.B., Dae Dae, and more came out to support The Coalition DJ’s 9th Anniversary party. It was a great turn out as many supporters came out to support people who are important pieces to an engine that keeps the music industry running.
