I decided from now on I'm going to write this color text, in this size, so it's impossible to ignore me...unless of course you use that fancy shmants ignore feature they have on this site.
People could still just scroll past your posts...

after all that i stacked enuff to buy my car cash and pay off a lage chunk of my mortgage.
now i am starting up a Black Youtube with feature length films from black independant and major filmmakers. My biz partner has had a career long rel;ationshiopo with Spike lee and brought him on board.
i met with tyler perry last summer he wants to get down too.
i got about $200k in start up investment. that pays for my servers and other hosting related costs.
payroll is my programmer and IT guy as well as myself and minimal compensation for the other 5 team members.,
right now we are in Alpha stage and have 100 testers. some are wucorp members. official launch is june/july 09.
my role as CEO/Art Director is to plan strategy, delegate responsibilities create graphics, manage team, and meet with sponsors/vendors etc.
my day consists of reading a shitload of emails
checking up on progress of the site. phone calls.
bi-weekly team conference call.
this is the pay off for paying dues for 8 years. i paid the cost to be the boss. there were times when me and my partner were living off chips koolaid and weed working on $250 logo contracts. yes small biz is a 24 hr job you gotta play the role of the CEO down to the Janitor. but i have past that stage and i can now afford to pay others to shoulder the weight.
i have always been willing to share my experiences and give advice to those who want to go inbto biz for themselves. its hard work but the satifaction of manifesting YOUR OWN GOALS is well worth it.'
STYLE, you could be Jesus and have proof and they would still hate you for no good reason.
i commend your entreprenuerial spirit tho.
i think thats pretty cool shit to be one hundred percent truthful.
Look eye, always look eye.
Jimmy's, Thats The Spot Where Hiphop Lives Lol
New Music alert:
you remember when you made that thread in KTL about how white people were "savages?" and you did that mostly just to goad white people to come into the thread and get angry and eventually say some savage shit?
do you see where i'm going with this?
STYLE still has ZERO proof that they are his shirts, or with any of the shit.
I've seen STYLE's shirts, it's like someone those $2 tiger posters and superglued them onto a t-shirt, now he's like "THIS IS MY DOPE SHIT RAPPERS BE WEARING".
no it's not.

Haven't got the time to read that post yet.
But from here, it looks suspiciously like a sonning with words and pictures.
im gonna check it out and see if he tops
"I had gen chat poppin with games and fun threads"
actually. dont read it. its fuckin wack. nothing funny happens. he just goes on to elaborate on how he had 3 failed businesses as opposed to 1 taco shell turtleneck sweater conglomorate.
what a hero. (in the hood)
However, it was a little long-winded, somewhat preachy, and a little far-fetched.
I suggest you just wait for "Gavin!--The Movie" due out in fall 2011,
Starring: This faggot as Gavin:
And these guys as his clothing line:
I can imagine he actually has a movie in the works.
