AML 001: NBA v. Donald Sterling, Does the Punishment Fit the Crime?

NBA v. Donald Sterling, Does the Punishment Fit the Crime

DRUMROLL PLEASE PEOPLE! THE BIG REVEAL IS HERE! It’s here AML People, our new format going forward.

1. The website will in the next few weeks become a membership (free) site. Articles will still be accessible to all. However, make no mistake about it, I am focused on building a solid AML community of industry heads and artists. That is what I intend to focus the rest of my 2014 on.

2. For substantive law coverage of breaking legal issues in the music and entertainment industry at large, expect it, going forward, in a Podcast format. I decided to take the Podcast thing seriously as it offers the best solution for my schedule and it allows me to continue to share insightful and valuable content with you. African radio stations and OAPs, including Nigeria, you have my permission to share my work on your platforms as liberally as you like. I also look forward to having some of you on my show.

3. Finally, I had the P-Square breakup story all ready to go but decided to push out this story instead, especially since I am waiting for my mini-studio equipment to still arrive. 🙂 I am excited! Check on the official podcast, tell me what you think, and it can only get better.

Special shout out to ADAKU, go cop her album if you haven’t already. A special shoutout also to Kidkonnect, thank you to both artists who are featured in this Episode. AML artists I have tons of your work you have sent. I will be reaching out periodically if there is a fit for interviews with you all and of course to share your talents with the world as well.
