Mercedes Benz Armor Protection for Black Men #hiphop

leave a comment »

When I say protect ya neck, I mean it. Here’s the specs on the Mercedes Benz armored vehicle. This car will protect you from 9 MM and .44 Magnums. This will keep Plaxico and others safe. Do it now. Don’t go to jail. I’m serious.

Mercedes Benz Armored Vehicle E-guard

“A brother of the Mercedes-Benz S Guard, the E Guard class represents itself as very safe, reliable and luxurious armored car which comes fully armored from a production line. The B4 protection level protects passengers from hand guns such as 9mm gun, 0.357 Magnum, 0.44 Magnum with speeds up to 440 m/s.

Production of the model series W 211 started in the year 2002 and continues until today (2007). The E Guard models use 4 types of engine; the E320 and E500 (both of which were released in 2002*), E350 (2005*) and E320 CDI (2006*). Unlike the S 600 Guard class with B6/B7 armoring protection and speed electronically limited to 210 km/h, the E class’ weight is 2580 kgs (see the table below for more details) which makes it possible to reach a maximum speed of 240 km/h which is also electronically limited.

Due to it’s armor weight, the Mercedes-Benz E Guard cars use the Anti-Dive system which prevents the vehicle suspension from deflecting. Such deflects are caused by braking, when the front wheels and wheelbase get put under enormous pressure. Naturally, similar forces develop on the rear wheels and wheelbase during the acceleration process which is why the Anti-Squat system is also used there. Anti-Squat is simply the same system as Anti-Dive, but designed for the rear.”

Why would Lamar Odom marry Khloe Kardashian?

leave a comment »

I mean, what’s the appeal? Ok. She’s relatively unknown other than a reality show. Why would a Los Angeles Lakers World Champion marry someone like Khloe Kardashian? I watched this show this past week and saw singer Omarion pleading with this lady and wanting to shift from being friends for seven years into a relationship. This dude actually seemed hurt that she didn’t want to be more than friends. I asked myself, “Why would someone be that into Khloe Kardashian?”

I then see the news yesterday that NBA Los Angeles Laker and World Champion Lamar Odom has proposed to this chick and they are getting married this upcoming Sunday. I was appalled and could not figure out why. It’s not like Lamar Odom needs hype and needs notoriety the way Omarion does. Omarion’s career is in the dumps. He needed Khloe Kardashian to lift him out of obscurity and make his career pop off again. But Lamar Odom? What does he need Khloe for? I came to the conclusion that he must love her.

They’ve known each other for a month according to reports. Why would you make $10,000,000 per year and marry Khloe Kardashian? What is the appeal? Does Lamar Odom think she has money so therefore she won’t mess up his money when they divorce next year? But wait a minute. Her dad, Robert Kardashian, was a great lawyer who worked on the O.J. Simpson case. I think, had she not been pregnant, Lamar Odom would have been better off marrying this hottie, Kourtney Kardashian.

If Lamar Odom wanted a Kardashian and not go after Reggie Bush’s ex Kim Kardashian, his best pick would have been Kourtney —>>>>. Kourtney is crazy hot and Kim is kind of average. Not that looks are everything but this whole union smells of something more than love to begin with. Just like when Omarion was pushing up like crazy. On TV it seemed as though he was sincere but then it looked much more contrived than anything because he was pushing so hard to get her.

leave a comment »

Former Washington Redskins Super Bowl winner and black quarterback Doug Williams announces that Atlanta will be the home of the Black College Football Hall of Fame. For those too young to know, Doug Williams is a quarterback who graduated from Grambling State University and played quarterback in the National Football League and won a Super Bowl with the Washington Redskins.

Doug Williams is now the head coach at Grambling State and obviously has a real passion for HBCU’s (Historically Black Colleges and Universities). The first enshrinement of the inductees will be held at the Four Seasons Hotel on February 20, 2010 to coincide with Black History Month.

Every football player who played at a black college and university will be a future candidate for the Hall of Fame. Obviously, like any Hall of Fame, the athlete will have had to put up huge numbers and be an outstanding football player or coach.

Sit Down With Obsessed Film Producer Will Packer

leave a comment »

For all intents and purposes, Will Packer is a star. His films have grossed over $100 Million in box office receipts in one year alone. But the greatest lesson lies in understanding what Mr. Packer did to excel to these levels.

In my radio interview with him on Beyond The Bling Radio, I go one on one with Will Packer.

This talented director, filmmaker, and CEO of Rainforest Films, has produced and directed Obsessed starring Beyonce Knowles and Idris Elba, Stomp The Yard, Stomp The Yard 2, and is presently putting the finishing touches on another blockbuster hit called Takers where he is working with Hollywood’s elite actors once again. You can download and listen to the complete motivating interview online here at Beyond The Bling Radio.

Get ready to get moving! This guy motivates everyone to action. Starting where we all start, with nothing but a dream and a prayer, Will Packer and Rob Hardy did what all true entrepreneurs do when challenged, they got busy. He removed all excuses for why he couldn’t succeed and started putting a plan together to realize his dreams. Armed with a laptop, passion, courage, wisdom, and prayer, this man made it from ZERO to 100 Million! You can too!

The Black Music Guide To Marketing

leave a comment »

I had a discussion with a prominent Atlanta music artist and songwriter this morning that prompted me to discuss the marketing and sales of music. Urban music is responsible for the bulk of sales online but there are only a handful of artists who make it to the top level of even getting there. Marketing your music has two distinct components to it: 1. Consumer Marketing and 2. Retailer Marketing.

Obviously, you must build brand awareness of the artist to the consumer because this drives sales at retail. When marketing to the consumer you must use programs such as PR web or other free PR services to build and tell stories about the artist to make the consumer familiar with the artist. This must be done way more than once and in fact should have stories done at least once per week or more. When the consumer is browsing the music section at Best Buy or Walmart and see the CD in the store, they will subconsciously remember that artist and their story. This influences buying. It does NOT guarantee a purchase it simply influences the buyer.

Retailer marketing is tough with tons of retailers closing lately but it is a separate function that involves reaching out to individual store level buyers and building a relationship with them. Marketing collateral should be sent to the store level buyer once per week to stay in front of the retailer. In other words, you should find out all the buyers at the stores in your region and create post card flyers and send to the buyer each week. By store level, I mean find out the buyers at the Walmart in Atlanta, Lithonia, Conyers, Douglasville, Birmingham, Mobile, Memphis, and Nashville for example. Work these stores if this is the area that the artist is from and can get to for in store signings.

The buyer should get to the point where they consistently see the artist name and by the time you send them an order form to buy your title, they already have familiarity with the artist. This should be done for at least 6-12 weeks.
