Yesterday Thursday (March 10) was the one year anniversary for YoDonBleekRaps. I will like to personally thank each and every one of you guys for viewing my blog, I really appreciate it. Without you guys, this blog wouldn’t be as big as it is. I really appreciate all of the support, it really means a lot to me. Growing up, I always wanted to be a journalist and write for XXL, The Source and Vibe magazines, but I wasn’t to sure if my dream would ever come true. I knew if I work hard at it, there will be a possibility that I can achieve my dream and I did. Now I have an article published in the May 2010 issue of XXL magazine. Being a Journalist/Blogger and Music Manager, are just three of my smallest dreams. My biggest two dreams were to graduated from college and to let my voice be heard. On May 17, 2010, I graduated from Rutgers University with a B.A. in Journalism and Media Studies, with a minor in Africana Studies. By starting this blog, it helped me let my voice be heard and I touched so many Peoples around the world. I NEVER knew that I will be an inspiration to people all the way in Jamaica. This internet thing is unbelievable. It gave me the opportunity to touch others, saved young Blacks and Latinos males from selling drugs and joining gangs. When I first started this blog a year ago, I was a senior in college and was lost mentally. I was dealing with a lot of stress because my oldest brother and best friend both were murdered. I used writing to express my true thoughts and feelings.

Many doors were slammed in my face, but I kicked those same doors down and walked in. If I can make it coming out of the projects you could to. When I speak, go to interviews, and meetings, I am representing for ever Black and Latino male that comes from the inner cities and projects. People can take many things from you; your money, your love, your family and friends, but don’t ever let them take your dream. Always remember that a dream is just a dream without a vision. You have to take action and have a vision to turn your dream into reality.
During my senior year at Rutgers University, I took an internship in the editorial department at XXL magazine. During my eight months there, I wrote news stories, got an article published in the May 2010 issue and interviewed rapper Juelz Santana backstage at his concert. After graduating from Rutgers University in May 2010, and ending my internship with XXL, I landed another internship with www.globalgrind.com. During my short time at Global Grind, I wrote news stories and covered VH1 Hip-Hop Honor: Dirty South red carpet. On the red carpet, I interviewed Gucci Mane, Slime Thug, Juvenile, Ying Yang Twins, Dem Franchise Boyz, J Prince, and Bun-B.
“One thing that separates me from other Journalists/Bloggers is that when I do interviews and post my blogs, I don’t have any friends. I post the truth and asks the questions that the fans want to know.”
“You were born in this world with nothing, you will leave this world with nothing, therefore I don’t owe anyone nothing.”
