“The greatest education in the world is watching the masters at work.”
Michael Jackson
There was not a dry eye during Chris Brown’s performance  tribute to the late great Michael Jackson! Ever since Chris brown was a young boy he looked up to Michael Jackson as his idol and musical mentor, and the idea of Michael and him teaming up would have been legendary in it’s own rights! However I know that Michael Jackson is proud of Chris Brown, tonight we didn’t just see Chris Brown honor his musical icon, but a young man that has grown up before our eye’s to salute legend! I was in tears when he stated to sing “Man in The Mirror” him being choked up only added to the expression in his heart! Chris Brown shouldn’t be second guessed anymore on his talents, heart, or his ability to reach the masses! Michael Jackson once said “I’m never pleased with anything, I’m a perfectionist, it’s part of who I am.” However tonight mister Chris Brown that is wrong Michael wouldn’t correct a thing, you did amazing tonight! Furthermore twitter went crazy over your performance here is a few comments to let you know how the fans of yours and Michael Jackson were blessed by your true tribute to greatness:
CUTIESMILEY1990-Girl make sure you watch Chris performance..It was beautiful!!
kaykay0715-Thank u Taraji P Henson! Chris brown stole everyone’s hearts
24manda24_SOP-HISTORY WAS FREAKIN MADE, yall finally realizing the issssh we’ve been saying!!!!!!! CHRIS BROWN is the best and has been the best!!!!
afrocenchic-This was one of the best BET awards in a long time! Chris Brown and El Debarge were the highlights!
BelindaBrown-Im VERY PROUD OF YOU @chrisbrown Happiest day of any CB fan
IamNovel-Chris Brown killed the whole show… #IdontCareWhatUsay or #HowMuchYouHate wow
RT @precioustrice: @chrisbrown You have made us proud tonight..CBE standup..Teambreezy always had your back…Let’s do this…to the mountaintop..

nat_alie13-i am so happy right now! chris killed the MJ tribute &&& won that award!!!! &&& he said #teambreezy , the night can’t get any better.
onebrownangel-@chrisbrown go boy you know u are a bad boy love u
And many more I wish I could post them all, and this just goes to show what an amazing gift music is to us all and how it touches us in a way that words may never truly express! As each song went on you could see that passion, fire, and that electric energy that Michael Jackson had and when Michael’s brother embraced Chris after his performance my heart dropped not a dry eye could be found in the Awards! Watching Chris Brown tonight let’s me further know that no one could have done better, and Michael is in heaven right now smiling and looking down knowing that music has it’s lead BACK!! CHRIS God bless your heart you did amazing tonight the night was yours you took back everything that was taken or discredited your on top and you can’t be stopped! So smile hard and enjoy the piece of history you gave us all!

After Midnight Productions Interview
Interview By: Geneva Relf

Geneva: Thanks so much for your time, and agreeing to this interview?
After Midnight Productions: Not a problem, Thanks for the interview.
Geneva: Now After Midnight Productions was established in 2003 correct? Who are the founders?
AMP: Yes, Sean Fields and Myself (Damon Humphrey)
Geneva: When it comes to artist what does AMP look for?
AMP: Artist with unique sound, the hunger to get a project done, and one who is self motivated, one who is not looking for a hand out,but willing to put in work. 

Geneva: What is the biggest mistake upcoming artist make when it comes to a label?
AMP: In my opinion, a lot of upcoming artist feel they need to say how “hot” they are. They brag too much on themselves. They need to let their music speak if it’s that “hot”.
Geneva: What is the proper way for an artist to get discovered or even heard by a record label?
AMP: In my opinion, a lot of artists utilize youtube, myspace (despite people saying its dead), especially twitter, because you can reach out to far more people. Also entering talent shows, and other show type venues.
Geneva: Being a CEO for AMP can you take us through a typical day for you?
AMP: A typical day right now, consists of getting up at 6 every morning, checking my email,  chat with my business partner, handle the school thing also, and then later on in the afternoon/evening, network, make music, return phone calls, and consistently update my website and when its possible, studio sessions.
Geneva: When you hear a beat what makes it a hit for you?
AMP: It has to move me.
Geneva: When it comes to music and song selection what's the hardest part about picking the right song?
AMP: Well you never know what song the audience will like, you might decide to pick “a” and they completely hate it.
Geneva: I don't know if you can go into great detail, but can you tell us about upcoming projects?
AMP: As of right now, AMP is featured on an R&B Soul singers album from MD, by the name of Ameerah The Songstress, the album is called “How I feel” which is on I tunes , and I am pushing my own production album on I tunes called “After Midnight Productions presents The Works”, which features artists from CA all the way to NY. I put this album together with a team of different producers.
Geneva: What makes AMP different from other labels?
AMP: We actually care about the artist...even though what the artist presents is a product, and let's face it a product has to be put on the market in order to succeed. The person themselves is not a product and shouldn’t be treated as one or as if a number on a roster, but this artist has actual feelings and idea's and concepts themselves about where their career is going, and that's what we try to convey to them.

Geneva: When it comes to artist trying to break into the industry what's the best advice you can give them?
AMP: Be yourself, don’t try and copy what’s already out there. Make a name for yourself and they will be asking about you, they will be trying to get in contact with you.
Geneva: What's the hardest part about breaking an artist into mainstream?
AMP: Because the industry nowadays is so cookie cutter..everybody looks the same and sounds the same..the industry as a abundance of the "Britney spears”, the boy-bands,the minute rapper’s, so that when you do come with something different you get denied!!..Because you don’t fit into that mold, which never made any since to me because I thought the mainstream was looking for something different. I guess not. But that's just my opinion...lol

Geneva: After Midnight Productions presents "The Works" was released in April of 2010 what was the inspiration behind this project?
AMP: Well, I had older material that I wanted to release on a new project and also I have dealt with some artists lately who were hungry and wanted to contribute to this album. And not only that, it features nothing but AMP produced material with the assistance of other producers I’ve worked with over the years. And the big thing, it is sample free.
Geneva: When it comes to an album, mixtape, or even a single can you take us through the steps it takes?
AMP: well first with me it all starts with the music,without music your not going to have a mixtape or a single,or a album,so first comes the music.....making sure I got something hot!!..then comes the artist..whether it be contacting artist I've used before or just scouting out new talent...then comes the writing process,studio time,marketing plan and last but not least promotions.

Geneva: What's the best way for an artist to get music heard by an A&R?
AMP: Get yourself a manager...someone who's going to work for you, make the calls, hit the pavement, network, actually nowadays A&R people hit the pavement as well looking, so you never know who's going to see you...and that’s why you need a good manager in your corner someone who's going to set up the venues so a artist can be seen.

Geneva: What was the defining moment for AMP? When did you realize that the label was a hit?
AMP: I’ll give you 2...one was having one of our songs actually hit mainstream and get airplay and the other was working with Ameerah the Songstress who in her own right has done some fantastic things from singing lead vocals for legendary Chaka Khan, to touring all over the country..Oh shout out to Kimmy K, DJ ABBICO...."It A’int My Fault” is the song receiving airplay.

Geneva: Now AMP is located in San Francisco, CA what's the benefit to being located in California?
AMP: Well there have always been 2 locations; music Mecca’s if you will....New York and California...these places are the heart of the music industry.

Geneva: What's the most complicated part about being a producer?
AMP: Going through the heap of crap to find those “right” connects and those “right” artists, being disrespected by people who never even been in a studio, or even worked remotely with any artists, the competition to stand out because there are a lot producers out there. So it’s trying to find that “brand new” sound to stand out.
Geneva: What is the most rewarding part about being a producer?
AMP: The reaction that I’ve gotten when people hear our production for the first time, not knowing who the artist is or who I am but really enjoying something fresh and new.

Geneva: Based off your experiences and expertise in the business what's the biggest key artist need to be successful in the industry?
AMP: There are successful jokes in the industry, and they make a whole lot of money, so it’s hard for me to answer that question right now. LOL
Geneva: Being a CEO of AMP what's the biggest lessons you have had to learn?
AMP: Patience and Persistence is key in this business. You win some, you lose some, but you got to keep pushing forward, because you never know who is watching you. 
Geneva: Who do you inspire to collaborate with?
AMP: Pretty much anyone who has a strong drive and are about their business and has the same goal in mind.
Geneva: In one phrase or word can you describe AMP?
AMP: Unique
Geneva: So what can we look forward to from the artist on you label?
AMP: I don’t have any artists on my label per se, but you best believe you will continue to hear new collaborations from After Midnight Productions
Geneva: Thanks again for agreeing to this interview. Is there anything you would like to say before we go? Also don't forget to tell the people where to find you?
AMP: Thanks again for considering After Midnight Productions for this interview. Look out for future collaborations and new projects that are being situated now. You can find more information about After Midnight Productions @
www.aftermidnightproductions.biz , follow me on twitter @amp_studios and also you can contact me for business opportunities @ ampstudios415@aol.com

The Official Stefon4u Single "Teacher's Pet" Feat. Khleo Thomas

Khleo Thomas- http://twitter.com/Khleo_t
Stefon4U - http://www.myspace.com/stefon4u 


 Yes ladies that young man in the 6th grader scene is little Sean Garrett's son he's so adorable. Enough said pretty much when you think about it the lyrics say it all. And who better then Nicki Minaj to team up with for this track! Sean Garrett has been known for his hit singles that make you want to replay over and over again!"She told me that the girl I'm with don't get it .She wanna show me she can be better girlfriend" We all know how that goes be honest! How many times I have we seen a man or woman with someone that doesn't treat them right? You wonder how he stays with her, and if you get your shot your going to prove why your the better choice! They both look so amazing in this video these two are collaboration greatness! "And I just heard that you was back on the market. Let me stick shift, ride it, back it up, and then park it. You and me, we should be together."   Which happens your hear they are single,She messed up and let you go, or you realized you could upgrade and made that move! Either way it's a fun track and the video is really cute, and the high school scene was on point. Sometimes it seems that way when your in a relationship like your in high school all over again! and it's even crazier when the one you want you have crushed on for years and it seems like all of a sudden, they finally see you! "You know niggas and girls how they quit then they make up .She told me she been in love with me every since we were in 6th grade .Ms. Hills class, I'm just thinking (ahh ohh) Mighty funny didn't notice her back then.But now her body banging, got me thinkin (ahh ohh) Im just thinkin I'm to quick to fall I wanna hit it but I'm still involved" And it's hard when you feel a certain way you see them in your dreams and you want to make things workout to let him see that it's better in your world! "Shawty said she had so many dreams of her and me, she couldn't sleep.She tellin me to come and get it all (get it all) She so glad the girlfriend that I use to have didn't wanna treat me right .So she told me I can get it all (get it all) Best believe me she gon get it all (get it all)



Guess who is all grown up ladies and gentlemen? Sammie yes that adorable little boy is now a MAN and on June 21st he released his anticipated project called “IT’S JUST A MIXTAPE”. So far the buzz has been amazing reaching 12,734 downloads so far according to LimeLinx.com. However many of the tracks were leaked by Sammie on Hotnewhiphop.com to calm down the wait while  intriguing  the anticipated pallet for music lovers! If you have noticed more artist are putting out mixtapes rather then albums! However it’s no worries to fans great music is great music no matter the cost! However mixtapes are considered “FREEDOM” for artist! Mixtapes give artist a chance to be them without label pressure, or impressions plus the best part true response to their music! It’s a greater connection to fans then numbers through a machines! Back to Sammie he’s been working nonstop to produce this mixtape and the ustreams only had fans begging for more!
“IT’S JUST A MIXTAPE”- http://www.limelinx.com/files/51cf1accbadb85e17f032af734decba7
or http://www.zshare.net/download/77490072b5b35e17/
14 – tracks including intro and outro
(Just a few broken down)
Naughty Girl ft. Diamond- This track says it all ladies, and DIAMOND represents for us! Sammie picked a beat that really draws you into the track! This can easy be that dance track you put on when you just want to strut around, however keep in mind the suggestive lyrics for the “GROWN & SEXY” please be advised! My absolute favorite verse would have to be “Away with that good girl shit you can have that” Sammie is all grown up now! “I’m sweeter then Reese Pieces “- courtesy of Diamond!
Make Pretend- Wow speechless about this one, however it’s a track that really tells you the deal! When the anticipation builds from being away for so long! However until he get’s back just “Pretend” he’s there however don’t replace him just imagine he’s there until he can really get there! “GRAB YOUR PILLOW AND PRETEND IT’S ME, AND HOLD ME TIGHT”
Phone Call- Being dumped by phone and voicemail at that! However the track it’s really a reality when they just leave and you don’t know why! Your trying to understand what happen yet no one is on the other end to answer you.  The biggest question “I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHY YOU LEFT ME IN THE FIRST PLACE” a question many have asked themselves before! “RING RING I KNOW YOU SEE ME CALLING” and “TIRED OF YOUR VOICEMAIL” this song is sad but in relationships sometimes your left without answers!
B Word- The beat is so classic the guitar is beautiful in the opening. How being in the lime-lights is hard when the one your with doesn’t understand that it’s apart of the job. No he’s not calling her a “BITCH” he’s calling her “BEAUTIFUL” actually you just have to listen to the track! He’s telling her the way things use to be and he wants he girl back and his buddy back! When you stop being who you used to be, and now fight about all the things that didn’t use to bother you.  “BABY YOUR BEAUTIFUL”
Pretty Girl Anthem- The song that salutes to all the PRETTY ladies of the world, and all ladies should be standing up because, all ladies are beautiful in their own special way!  “SEXY AND YOU KNOW IT PUT YOUR HANDS UP” “ROLL CALL SEXY LADIES STAND UP” so ladies stand up and put your hands up, it’s a fun track and the beat is playful. However it’s just hard to imagine little Sammie however he’s all grown up!
