Every Successful Artist Needs a Manager

The music industry is a vast and complex landscape, with countless moving parts and variables that can make it challenging for artists to navigate. One critical aspect of an artist's career is having a manager. Here are five reasons why music artists need a manager:

  1. Business management: An artist manager can handle the business aspects of an artist's career, including finances, contracts, and negotiations. A manager can help the artist secure favorable deals, protect their interests, and maximize their revenue.

  2. Industry connections: An experienced manager can leverage their network of industry contacts to help the artist secure gigs, collaborations, and other opportunities that can advance their career. A manager's relationships can also provide access to resources that may be difficult to obtain otherwise.

  3. Time management: Managing an artist's career is a full-time job, and it can be challenging for artists to balance their creative work with the demands of running a business. A manager can take care of the day-to-day tasks, freeing up the artist to focus on their music.

  4. Strategic planning: A manager can help an artist develop a long-term career strategy, including setting goals, identifying opportunities, and building a brand. By taking a strategic approach, an artist can build a sustainable career that will stand the test of time.

  5. Emotional support: The music industry can be a tough and stressful environment, with many ups and downs. A good manager can provide emotional support and guidance to help the artist navigate the challenges and stay focused on their goals.

Here are some examples of famous rappers with managers:

  1. Jay-Z: Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter has had a long-standing partnership with his manager, Tyran "Ty Ty" Smith. Smith has been instrumental in shaping Jay-Z's career, negotiating lucrative deals and partnerships, and helping him build his business empire.

  2. Kendrick Lamar: Lamar has worked with Dave Free and Terrence "Punch" Henderson, the founders of the record label Top Dawg Entertainment. Free and Henderson have helped Lamar build his brand and navigate the music industry, resulting in multiple Grammy Awards and critical acclaim.

  3. Cardi B: Cardi B's manager is Klenord "Shaft" Raphael, who has been with her since the early days of her career. Raphael has helped Cardi B secure high-profile collaborations and endorsement deals, and has been a key figure in her rise to fame.

  4. Drake: Drake is managed by Oliver El-Khatib, who is also a co-founder of Drake's record label, OVO Sound. El-Khatib has helped Drake develop his sound and image, and has been instrumental in his success as a recording artist and performer.

  5. J. Cole: J. Cole is managed by Ibrahim "IB" Hamad, who is also the co-founder of J. Cole's Dreamville record label. Hamad has played a key role in developing J. Cole's career, from his early mixtapes to his critically acclaimed albums and world tours.

In conclusion, a manager can be a vital partner for a music artist, providing business management, industry connections, time management, strategic planning, and emotional support. The examples of famous rappers with managers demonstrate the importance of this role in building successful music careers.

Boston Dynamics, the company known for creating some of the most advanced robots in the world, has made significant advancements in recent years. Their robots, such as the quadrupedal Spot and the bipedal Atlas, have become increasingly versatile and agile, capable of performing a wide range of tasks.

One area where these advancements could have a significant impact is in the military. The use of robots in warfare is not a new concept, but Boston Dynamics' robots could bring a new level of capability to the battlefield.

One potential use for these robots in the military is as sentries or guards. The quadrupedal Spot, for example, has the ability to navigate rugged terrain and can be equipped with cameras and sensors to detect potential threats. This could be used to patrol bases and other sensitive areas, freeing up human soldiers for other tasks.

Another potential use for Boston Dynamics' robots in the military is as scouts. The bipedal Atlas, for example, has the ability to navigate rough terrain, climb stairs, and even open doors. This could be used to scout out enemy territory, providing valuable information to soldiers on the ground.

The ability to carry heavy loads is another area where Boston Dynamics' robots could be used in the military. The Spot robot has demonstrated the ability to carry loads of up to 40 pounds, which could be used to transport supplies and equipment to troops in the field.

In addition, Boston Dynamics has also developed a robot called Handle, which is a wheeled robot that uses its arms to move around and pick up and carry heavy loads. This could be used for logistics and transportation purposes.

In conclusion, the advancements made by Boston Dynamics in robotics technology have the potential to revolutionize the way military operations are conducted. With the ability to navigate rugged terrain, carry heavy loads, and detect potential threats, these robots could be used to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of military operations. However, it is important to consider the ethical implications and safety concerns of using robots in the military and use them responsibly.

The immigration court system currently has a backlog of more than 1 million cases, according to data released on Wednesday (September 18) by Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), CNN reports.

Per TRAC: “The latest case-by-case court records through the end of August 2019 show the court’s active case backlog was 1,007,155…. If the additional 322,535 cases which the court says are pending but have not been placed on the active caseload rolls are added, then the backlog now tops 1.3 million.”

Judge Ashley Tabaddor, president of the National Association of Immigration Judges, told CNN that the immigration courts, which are managed by the Department of Justice (DOJ), are severely damaged. “If nothing else, the continuing rise of the backlog shows that the immigration court is broken,” she said. “Until we fix the design defect of having a court in a law enforcement agency, we will not be able to address the backlog in a fair and effective manner.”

A spokesperson for the DOJ sent a statement to CNN, but did not verify the information included in TRAC’s report. “[The DOJ] does not certify data from third parties,” the statement reads. “This report and DOJ’s own data further confirms there is a crisis at the border. This administration is taking aggressive steps to increase productivity, close loopholes and hire a record number of judges to address the backlog with our existing authorities.”

As Colorlines previously reported, the Trump administration set up tent courts in Texas this month for “asylum-seekers impacted by the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) program.” Over 40,000 migrants have been sent to Mexico under the MPP. However, as TRAC’s report on Wednesday notes, they represent a small fraction of the court’s backlog.

A new working paper published by the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) digs into the connection between school suspensions and adult incarceration. As Harvard Graduate School of Education reports, this paper—written by Andrew Bacher-Hicks and David Deming of Harvard University and Stephen Billings of the University of Colorado–Boulder—is “the first causal evidence that strict schools do indeed contribute to the so-called school to prison pipeline.”

The research focuses primarily on the Charlotte-Mecklenberg school district in North Carolina, where 23 percent of middle school students are suspended every year. A majority of the kids suspended are students of color, and boys make up the majority of those students.

The study’s authors found that young people who attend schools with high suspension rates are more likely to be arrested and incarcerated later in life, and less likely to attend a four-year college. From the Harvard article:

“One of the arguments in favor of suspensions is that if a student is removed from the classroom, they’re no longer causing disruptions, and so removing disruptive students could have positive benefits on those who remain in the classroom,” says Bacher-Hicks, a Ph.D. candidate in public policy at Harvard. “But we found for all students, there are large negative impacts on later-life outcomes, related to attending a school with a high suspension rate. That suggests there are not overwhelmingly positive benefits of removing disruptive peers from the classroom.”

The research ultimately shows that there are virtually no long-term benefits associated with suspension. “We tested a range of variables, and only one short-run benefit popped out for any subgroup: There was some evidence that test scores increased for non-minority males,” Bacher-Hicks says. “But even for that subgroup, we find negative long-run outcomes in terms of arrests and incarcerations.”

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced on Monday (September 23) that next week will mark the end of its so-called “catch and release” immigration policy, NPR reports. Catch and release refers to the practice of letting migrant families detained at the United States border enter the country while they await the completion of asylum proceedings.

Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Kevin McAleenan made the announcement while speaking at the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington, D.C.:

“With some humanitarian and medical exceptions, DHS will no longer be releasing family units from Border Patrol Stations into the interior,” McAleenan said in his prepared remarks. “This means that for family units, the largest demographic by volume arriving at the border this year, the court-mandated practice of catch and release due to the inability of DHS to complete immigration proceedings with families detained together in custody—will have been mitigated.”

In an official statement, a DHS spokesperson explained the shift in policy as, “part of the Trump administration’s strategy to mitigate the loopholes that act as a ‘pull factor’ for family units seeking to cross illegally at the Southwest border.” 

DHS also explained how it will implement the changes: “If migrant family units do not claim fear of return, they will be quickly returned to their country of origin, in close collaboration with Central American countries,” the statement reads. “If they do claim fear, they will generally be returned to Mexico under the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP).”

MPP, also called “Remain in Mexico,” sends migrants who seek asylum at the United States-Mexico border to wait for their hearing dates in Mexico. The program has been rife with confusion and disorganization.

This news follows a Supreme Court decision earlier this month that allows the Trump administration to require migrants to first seek asylum in “a third country,”—a country they traveled through on their way to the U.S. border—before they are allowed to seek asylum in the United States.
