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.


After listening to the second episode of the Verbal Graffiti Podcast you may be thinking “what does this show have to do with Hip-Hop?” Well, it’s simple, this show is about inspiring our audience to get out of its comfort zone.  It’s about challenging ourselves, to take action NOW in order to fully pursue whatever we set out to achieve. The show references comments from Mrs. Tamara Bunte, America’s #1 Sales Coach who just wrote a book titled “PROVERBS FOR SELLING” available on  We also referenced Tony Robins’s 7 Master Steps To Creating Lasting Change.  Again., we are not trying to teach this information but rather inspire our audience to look further into these resources for more helpful insight into overcoming challenges to business and personal goals.   
The first podcast also received criticism via email, as well as feedback from friends.  We narrowed it down to the top 5 critiques of the show and shared them along with our comments. The idea is that Rome was not built in a day, and this podcast will not be an overnight success, but we do plan to build it up to the point where it can be the absolute best Podcast out there (respectfully). So stay tuned.

Intro episode – VGP001

The first episode of the Verbal Graffiti Podcast is a short introduction to the show and content. The show will air on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each Month. In this episode, we introduce the show, the host, and reasons to listen in. We touched on a lot of subject matter that will be covered and expanded upon in future shows. If you were expecting commentary on music then you might be in for a surprise. Yes, music is an important part of the Verbal Graffiti lifestyle, but this podcast is more focused on inspiring the listeners to be a part of our “Gang of Hoodlums” who will read books and follow success formulas to better improve LIFE for everyone who participates. The idea is not that Rick Cruz is some sort of a GURU but rather that he is trying to stick to these life altering routines and he selfishly wants everyone to participate so that he can be held accountable for sticking to the path.

We Announced Da Hood Morning America Wake UP Challenge, Da Hood Book Klub and other Challenges or information that will make the listener think that this Podcast is nothing but a whole lot of work, And THAT It Is. But, those who participate will experience some amazing, life altering benefits. THAT is a proven fact.

This Month the Hood Book Klub will be reading The Power of Broke by Daymond John, co/written by Daniel Paisner. The book subtitle is equally as interesting as the title stating “How empty pockets, a tight budget and a hunger for success can become your greatest competitive advantage”. The book is $26 at Barnes & Nobel but we found it for $15 on The Power of Broke On  We will begin discussing the book on our next episode, but you don’t have to finish the book in that time frame.

We also asked for anyone looking to actively follow along, and become a part of our “Gang of Hoodlums” to grab a yearly planner and a journal to plan out goals and track progress.

Until next time friends remember “you are a combination of the 5 people you spend the most time with”. So,..choose your “Gang” wisely.
