There’s that infamous scene in Style Wars, any Hip Hop or New York head immediately knows what I’m talking about. The scene where Iz The Wiz and Kid 167 are watching the top to bottom they did drive by and Iz keeps saying..
This is it, this is it, THIS IS IT!
That’s how I feel right now, this is it. Getting EMPT back to this point hasn’t been easy, I’ve made some mistake on the management side but that’s all in the past and today we’re showing not telling. Let’s get right to it.
Today I’m proud to announce that our long time writer, EMPT ambassador and overall awesome person Ashley Hefnawy is stepping in as our new Editor In Chief. For the longest time, this site has been boutique to death. No one tells us what to do, when or how to do it. That’s what gives EMPT it’s charm but it’s also what limits it. We want to improve every single aspect of the process, we want to reach new platforms, reach more people and live out the name – and music for all. Our name is our mission statement. Ashley is going to help us elevate on all fronts to bring you guys more at an even higher level.
Monster’s back and flex drop a bomb to that…”
The second announcement today relates to that beautiful girl you see up there. On top of the Ashley bomb we’re stoked to announce the new EMPT YouTube Channel! We want to reach people through new platforms and create unique content usually not seen in our arena and this is a huge step forward in that regard. We’re just getting started but make sure and subscribe, there will be new content uploaded daily, exclusives and originals on the horizon. We want to be the kings, we want to make an impact and in order to do that we’re going to have to work harder, do more and step it way up. Challenge accepted.
You got to do everything. lf you specialize in one thing, you really can’t call yourself an all-out king.”
This is a proud moment for me, I was listening/watching the channel on my TV this morning and almost shed a tear man. I really love EMPT, it’s a love that’s real man but like I said earlier, I’ve made some mistakes a long the way that have in turn hurt the growth of EMPT and consequently hurt me. I had to evaluate everything. My friends are supportive, but no one knows my story, and “I” had to make some really hard decisions because no matter what, it was up to me to lead…
You’ve been talking like life is rushing pass and we’re just sitting tight, But nothings gonna change until you look inside…
When I started EMPT it was my therapy, it was the first time in my life where I let others into my mind and I didn’t hold anything back. You guys embraced it and for that I’m thankful. But in recent yearsI haven’t felt like I could be myself. Certain people can suppress your disposition, EMPT has always been a direct expression of who I am, who my friends are, some people have indirectly tried to take that away…
They’ve been talking, even plotting of a way they can steal you from me, There’s no way they can steal you from me, there’s no way they can steal you from me…”
That’s the honest to god truth man. I realize that when I’m running high so is EMPT and in order to take this away from me you’d have to take me first because we’re one in the same. At the same time, EMPT has grown to be much bigger than me and that’s why bringing in Ashley is the move. This has all been in the works for weeks now but today it’s official. Ashley, thank you for years of love, I’ve envisioned you in this position for a long time and it’s a dream come true. Let’s get it.
