On this episode of the Verbal Graffiti Podcast, we reflect on our previous shows and content after taking the summer off. This episode is simply to get all systems back up and running and to also let our audience know what we’ve been up to. We discuss current Biltmore Records projects, and ideas for our new company Inspire One Billion People Inc., along with, a Hip-Hop blog that we use to support established and unsigned artists music/videos in our market and to our network specifically.  Last but not least we announced that we will be reading SOAR by T.D. Jakes as part of the Hood Book Klub series. If you would like a free copy of that book you can email us at and we will send it to you.

*Stay tuned for episode 009 where will take a deeper dive into the current subject matter and build on the ideas originally established for the show.


In this episode of the Verbal Graffiti Podcast, we shared excerpts from an exclusive interview with Biltmore Records recording artist HUGO DA CAPO.  HUGO has a goal of helping to change the mindset of the youth through music that is responsible and inspiring.  HUGO also gives us insight into his life and growing up in Vance, South Carolina.  We took about 30 minutes of the two-hour interview to give you an Idea of who HUGO is as an artist and how many people could be impacted if this kind of idea could catch hold within popular Rap/Hip-hop Music.  The interview was also an opportunity to promote his new record called Dreamin to be released on June 27, 2017.  The record is available on iTunes and Google play along with any of your other favorite online music retailer.  We hope that you enjoy the interview and see the value of such a worthy goal.

VGP Episode 006 – GOAL SETTING

In this episode of the Verbal Graffiti Podcast, we discuss goal setting. We also started our discussion of the book we picked for June in our book klub (k), and added another step to our morning routine.  After we have built the morning routine we plan on issuing a 30-day challenge to encourage our audience to create a lasting habit. Rick Cruz acknowledges that the podcast is new and that we still have a lot of work to do. Especially if we are to have a shot at our goal of 100 thousand downloads per month.

The Hood Book Klub (k) is currently reading Secrets of the Millionaire Mind in Turbulent Times by T Harv Eker. During that segment of the show, we discussed ideas and concepts that were found in the first four chapters of the book.  That led to the Main Topic where we shared quotes from Jim Rohn, Zig Ziglar and referenced a Harvard Study on the effects of goal setting and planning.  The study basically showed how in the class of 1979 3 % of Harvard MBA’s made 10 times as much as the other 97% combined. The only difference was that 3% had clear written goals for the future and made plans to accomplish them.

We then added writing down goals as the third step to the morning routine. The goal is to have a total of 5 steps before starting the 30-day challenge. At the end of the show, Rick Cruz shared another story from his past picking up where he left off last week. The last show received allot of positive feedback that we are looking to build upon, in order to create a show that would be of value to all who take the time to listen, Thank you.


In this episode, Rick Cruz announces the secret project that he’s been working on over the past two years and its 10 million dollar price tag. We referenced Tony Robbins and his 7 Master Steps To Creating Lasting Change program, as well as Sylvester Stallons famous story of how he sold the original ROCKY movie script and had to talk some unwilling movie producers into letting him star in the movie.

As part of Junes Hood Book Klub, we announced that we will be reading “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind in Turbulent Times” by T Harv Eker. If you want a free copy of the book just email us at The book is also available on Amazon and Audible. We will begin or discussion of the book beginning with our next episode.

In this Episode, Rick Cruz also opens up and shares some stories from his past. We then went into the Hood Morning America Wake-Up Challenge, suggesting that our audiences commit to adding 3 minutes of meditation to their morning routine and then closed the show with our definition of true POWER.

VGP Episode 004 The ketogenic diet (keto), key to Cancer Prevention & Healthy Living

Episode 004 of the Verbal Graffiti Podcast is a reintroduction of sorts. The show’s host Rick Cruz talks about the show’s new tagline which is Business, Finance and lifestyle optimization.  The word optimization actually means the action of making the best or most effective use of a situation or resource. The podcast is a road map for success in those key areas. The road map is not provided by Rick Cruz but provided by respected experts in related fields. The advice of respected leaders is then utilized by Rick Cruz as part of his social experiment and shared in the podcast.  Every day we receive all kinds of advice on business, finance, and lifestyle on-line, and most of us do not have time to research or execute on those ideas.  This podcast is about the execution of those suggested strategies, and you the audience have a front row seat to that endeavor. The timing of the podcast is being synchronized with Biltmore Records website updates and the release of new music that will also be available on iTunes.  Episode 4 of the Verbal Graffiti Podcast also referenced THE MODEL HEALTH SHOW with Shawn Stevenson. ( We suggested that our audience subscribes to that podcast, and lock in Dr. Joseph Mercola’s website; as well.  The article discussed on WEB MD’s involvement with Monsanto pharmaceutical can be found on as well (  We will always do our best to provide our audience with valuable information that they can incorporate into their lives, and that information will be applied by Rick Cruz first as your human Business, Finance, and Lifestyle Ginni pig.  Welcome to the Verbal Graffiti Podcast Episode 004.
