basketball set me up for the music

business because in the music business

if you ask me and I say this in one of

my albums I say I'm involved in the

music business but half of these folks

don't know music and don't know business

have no business in music what is this

and it's just the truth so imagine if

I'm dealing with a bunch of people that

sending me the kind of music I need to

put out the kind of things I need to do

the kind of movement I need to be a part

of or even trying to categorize me as an

artist well it took the discipline from

basketball the fighter understanding

teamwork understanding what it is to

involve yourself for people that are

aligned with the same vision and apply

to the music business

now if the music business would have

been as sharp as they should have been

in the late 90s they wouldn't a sued

Napster they would have bought Napster

in the late nineties they wouldn't Oh

Steve Jobs oh no we don't want to do a

deal with iTunes they would have got a

piece of iTunes they would have found a

way to partner up and in turn they would

have been a part of the iPhone iPad I

everything at this point correct so I

learned from what they with what they

were doing bottom line is failure has

been the mother of all success with

everything that I've been been involved

with and I seen the line the other day I

thought was great where they say you

don't make mistakes mistakes make you

hmm

that's been my life that's all that you

learn from them what you have you have

to learn from them yeah and I've I've

learned from the worse but listen to the

best figure out that riddle and figure

out success and that's why I'm on stage

right now with Tony

your life has not been without pain and

not been without problems you know

people see that some of them so

successful as you are and they miss that

if you would some of those darker days

early on and how did you get through it

because everyone has dark days but not

everybody finds the way through it how'd

you do it

well at first I didn't really understand

the life that I was living what I mean

man I thought it was just

everybody's normal as you start to grow

you look back and you go wow wait a

second I was going through things at

five six years old that I shouldn't have

been going through but I think God for

that and I think for those experiences

because they wouldn't have built the

character to be able to be on the stage

and have this conversation so things

such as I grew up around and this isn't

nothing about being a victim it's just

me being real with child and hopefully

you guys take it motivate motivate

yourself inspire yourself and I'm hoping

one way or another helps you whatever

path and journey you guys are trying to

create but I grew up around drugs I grew

up around abuse I grew up around

alcoholism drug addiction I mean you

name it

pimps everything was around but I didn't

understand it I just thought oh okay

that's Jose Ito let's make a little

that's a man dido

that's just our normal but it started to

shape me and when I mean abuse I don't

know I don't mean I was abused everybody

in my family was abused so you have to

abuse is a very interesting thing it

could either make you stronger or it can

make you a victim yeah I think it's um

an acquired taste there's no middle

ground there's no gray area when it

comes down either you become an animal

or you succumb to the system or the

abuse that's just saying so I got a

chance to read everybody in my family's

different place so my grandmother was a

revolutionist and a revolutionary and a

part of the of of what went on in Cuba

when when Castro took over and she was

one of the first for women to fight with

Castro in something called la Sierra

Maestra

which is when they fought in the

mountains okay so having a grandmother

that's a rebel an aunt that is a

political prisoner because when they

figured out what was going on

they had to they couldn't write each

other they had to meet in certain spots

and nobody could see them talking

because if not they knew that they know

what to play which was the play was

which was that Castro wasn't the right

play right so the started late yeah it

was too late so he started to figure out

ways to get my mother and my aunt town

which was operation Peter Pan operation

Peter Pan was dead I mean basically a

hustle through religion to get them out

of Cuba into the United States of

America and that's how my mother came

over here and my aunt the reason that I

tell you this story because those are

the women that built me my grandmother

my aunt and my mother so when you're

sitting down with someone that makes you

breakfast and starts talking to you

about do you ask yourself these

questions do you see what you're gonna

be do you see what's going on do you see

the opportunity you have in this country

do you see how you could take advantage

of this freedom that you have in this

country do you see that you can control

your own destiny without somebody coming

over here and taking everything away

from your family or killing everybody in

your family basically letting me know my

friend

everything we went through is to roll

the red carpet up for you and whatever

you think you may be going through right

now it's nothing compared to what we

went through that's right remember that

thank you and that would allow me to see

darker days like what are we talking

about at this point

I haven't been through and part of my

French I don't speak French but I

haven't been through it compared to what

my grandmother went through my aunt went

through my mother went through and my

father went through and all I'm doing is

taking what they've taught me and

applied it and taking full advantage of

the fact that I can control my own

destiny you went as you say you made

your life from negative to a positive

always from one negative to a positive

and started to they say show me your

friends and I'll show you your future we

say in Spanish deme honking - and Italy

looking to eros which is you know tell

me who you hang with I'm gonna tell you

who you are yeah so I now look at the

oil

I started to envision the circles that I

wanted to be in in life okay

and what I mean by that is look guys

there's no hidden agenda we're all here

to generate one way or another and make

money one thing is to make money the

other thing is when you let money make

you and I know billionaires out here

that have made all kinds of money and

are miserable and I'll tell you the

worst prison sentence in life you can

have is have all the money in the world

and be miserable you know so I'm here to

just talk to you guys about enjoying the

journey enjoying what it is when you do

create something and know when something

you don't ever want to be that person

where more is never enough you gotta

have fun you gotta be happy that's why I

wish the Forbes list instead of it being

the wealthiest human beings in the world

it should be the happiest human beings

in the world no I understand a member of

your family how'd you listen to some

Tony Robbins tapes so this is I used to

living in the neighborhood in Miami

called Carol City Carol City is a very

interesting neighborhood and still is

they even tried to change the name Miami

Gardens it's still interesting and when

I'm growing up in this neighborhood when

my mother could take me to school

she popping her Tony Robbins tape

believe me the last I'm gonna tell you

Carol City style the last no I was

trying to listen to his Tony rocks okay

so I mean I'm in the car and is 82 Pinto

got to go outside roll the windows down

let the heat out get the motor going so

when his tapes in I'm trying to listen

to 2 Live Crew poison clean

you know NWA at the time matter of fact

from Atlanta they had to hire brothers

which is a song called doodoo brown back

in the day I'm trying to listen to this

so I went to go touch the radio and my

mother

tough cookie

and she hits me and she said did you pay
