On what advice she’d give aspiring musicians:
If you want your music to be heard… you can just put stuff on the Internet and people can love it and that’s cool. I think the industry is much less scary than people think it is. You have to go into it with an idea of who you are and what you want to do, and you have to have an idea of the things that you won’t do, and the things that you want to aspire to. Because if you have clear goals and absolute no’s for yourself, then people can figure it out. And then you won’t be left like, “Oh, shit, why did I do that …” I don’t know, juice commercial. [Laughs]
My advice to young people wanting to make music and to be in this industry is to really spend your time making music. Make so much music you have no friends. Make music. Figure out what it is you love, and…because if you’re making cool art, then everything else will fall into line. If it’s good enough, if it’s cool enough, if it has enough emotion in it, people will listen, and people will love it. And there’s nothing else.

EVERYONE in Entertainment will tell you that the bestseller book '48 Laws Of Power' is a must-have! It’s the blueprint! Thankfully, my bosses at the time star producers The Trackmasters Tone & Poke gave it to me for my birthday when I worked at Columbia Records/Sony BMG! It’s a manual and I refer to it often.
It’s definitely required reading for ‘anyone interested in obtaining power in the modern world.’ I know personally, that several Hip-Hop artists have used this book as a blueprint to take their career to higher levels and in various directions. Take 50 CENT for example, who was signed to Columbia at the time that I received the book. He went on to partner with Greene to write, 'The 50th Law'. Having worked with 50 at the start of his career I knew how savvy he was then, so having a tool like this would only help him master his business mentality.
During the interview with Allhiphop.com, Robert Greene spoke about a few celebrities related to the Hip-Hop culture; Jay-Z and 50 Cent being two of them; even referring to 50 as a ‘true master’. I agree, I saw his promotional genius when we dropped the controversial mix-tape; I also saw and understood how strategic he was.
“[50 Cent] is a master of the connection between music and business,” says Greene. InThe 50th Law, Greene explains how 50 used his early days with Jam Master Jay at Columbia Records as an apprenticeship that taught him how to maneuver in the music business.

Awwww my first of many magazine interviews :) (2000). Hits Magazine featured me in the coveted 'Makin' it Happen' section when I began my radio promotions career at Sony/Columbia Records; where I worked records for acts: Nas, Destiny’s Child, 50 Cent, Lauryn Hill/The Fugee’s, Mariah Carey and many more! #grateful @RozOonTheGo
When asked ‘what advice I’d like to give to those aspiring to get in the Biz’:
"Don’t let anyone tell you you can’t do it. Don’t get caught up in the celebrity scene. And if you’re a female, don’t let this male industry take control (of you)." (12 years later I’m happy to say that I’ve taken + stuck by my own advice)
