ITZSOWEEZEE (aka one of the sickest group of people, that have created one of the sickest Blogs). They do a monthly Spotlight Series of some ill Djs. This month they are featuring J-Lah. Please read more about the Spotlight Series and some words from J-Lah himself.
Enjoy.

ITZSOWEEZEE Spotlight Series is a new mix series that highlights the incredibly talented DJs and producers that make up the ITZSOWEEZEE ranks, as well as our extended music family. Each month, we’ll bring you a fresh mix that reflects the diverse style and flavour of our crew. This is an opportunity to “meet” our selectors, enjoy some amazing free music, and understand why we command the respect that we do.

The sixth instalment features a special guest and long-time friend of the ITZSOWEEZEE crew, @J-Lah-1, who delivers a solid mix of Hip-Hop, R&B, and soul. This is a new look for the Toronto DJ, who is continuously evolving and adapting his sound and style. One thing that’s clear, however, is that he definitely doesn’t disappoint. Groove to this!

“I have been doing this for a while now… and i have finally evolved into a style that represents me and hits the soul… heres a little 30 min sneak peek in to my brain… enjoy the mix & tracks!”
– J-Lah

IIWAR is an 11 track Mixtape/EP from Toronto’s representative, Elcee. IIWAR is an Acronym for “If I Was A Rapper”. Elcee’s reasoning behind the concept “IIWAR” is that he considers himself a Recording Artist, and would much rather not be labelled as a “Rapper”. Having said that, Elcee wants to prove that he is highly capable of being a Rapper.

Elcee has been working a lot on other things than his music, check out his blog also with more info about his other ventures. To find that, check out his Thght Process Q & A below to find out more about Elcee. We thank him for taking his time to answer our questions.
So check out a dope Mixtape and a dope video.
Enjoy!

UTW-Who are you?
Elcee-My gov. is LaShawn Powell, artistically known as Elcee. I’ve been labelled with a variety of titles such as a Rapper, Singer, Motivational Speaker, Videographer, Photographer, Graphic Designer, Streetballer, Blogger etc.

UTW-What is your passion?
Elcee-My passion is to succeed and make a living off of what I enjoy doing.

UTW-What’s your biggest accomplishment to date?
Elcee-I’d have to say that one of my biggest accomplishments are being the Co-Host of a local television series titled “The LOVE Project”.

UTW-Perseverance is key in proving to yourself AND any detractors out there. We tell em’ “You thought wrong” what else would you like to say to any doubters right now?
Elcee-I don’t focus on my doubters, I’m sure they exist but I focus on those that support me and potential supporters because I’m going to continue making the music that feels natural to me, regardless of any nay sayers or non believers. If I were to change for others, I would be just like those in the mainstream industry that have disappointed me.

UTW-Thanks for everything, where can people find your work and get in contact with you?

Meet the Liveagl (Live A Good Life) Team.
This is a blog I have been following for some time now, and it has a huge influece for our UThghtWrng blog here. The whole idea behind Liveagl is within its name, LIVE A GOOD LIFE. The things they post are about the music, the art, the fashion, the video, etc that make us feel good. We like to live vicariously though people sometimes, and they display those that are living that “good life” but it is also fuel to the fire to inspire others. The people they post about are people that have put so much hard work to have reached that “good life” status, and if they can do it, why can’t we.
Please take in there blog, and get inspired from it. Also, check out the Thght Process Q & A that we got from all four members of the Liveagl Team.
Enjoy

UTW-Who are you?
Alex D.-Alex Delarge of LiveAGL (Live A Good Life)
Johnny-The name isn’t important, what’s important is that I’m half man half extraordinary. I’m a dreamer who does. I dream. I act. It’s that simple.
MisterP-My name is Jason Pearson, I am just a normal 22 yr old man with an opinion.
Greg D.-Who am I? That’s a question I ask myself everyday. On the surface; I am Greg Drakes, lover off food, music, architecture, travel, and women … deep down however; there is more. Like a lost traveller, I am still on the search for that pot of gold. Oh yeah… I’m also a poet and a blogger

UTW-What is your passion?
Alex D.-My passion is writing and art, I enjoy the idea of expressing my mental state in a creative way.
Johnny-To put it simply, L-O-V-E. My passion is to find the love in all things big or small, from music to traveling to meeting high-grade individuals and simply living my life my own way. Love is what keeps me moving, anything else is unnecessary.
MisterP-My passion is music. I love music in every way but I feel like a hypocrite saying that because I have never learned an instrument.
Greg D.-My ultimate passion is learning and living. When it comes to poetry, music, travel, communication, art, and women there is still …
so much to learn and so much to live for.
Deep down inside I want to inspire people. I want to motivate people and most importantly … I want to leave a legacy of change way beyond my living years.

UTW-What’s your biggest accomplishment to date?
Alex D.-My biggest accomplishment to date is starting Liveagl.com, it all started with an unknown dude (myself) from brampton who had no inside connects or relationships, but still managed to launch and grow and reputable website and media company. It’s something that I’m really proud of.
Johnny-Maturing into a beast and leaving my den. I left my domestic lifestyle to pursue an international one. Traveling and living abroad is the only way to truly experience life.
MisterP-Registering for school, around this time last year I dropped out. My life has come full circle.
Greg D.-That’s tough to say. To have a “biggest accomplishment” is to give rankings to what I’ve accomplish. There is no rank. No podium. No first place … Just life.

UTW-Perseverance is key in proving to yourself AND any detractors out there. We tell em’ “You thought wrong” what else would you like to say to any doubters right now?
Alex D.-I really don’t have anything to say frankly, my motivation is not spurred by others, negatively or positively. I try my best to lead a life solely on my own making, it keeps me free of any grudges or malice.
Johnny-“The greater the difficulty the more glory in surmounting it. Skillful pilots gain their reputation from storms and tempests.” Epictetus
MisterP-I wouldn’t think of myself as having doubters per say. Partly because I don’t thin I am important enough to have “haters”. The only response needed is success. Once I am successful then the haters will come.
Greg D.-“In order to lead the orchestra one must turn their back to the crowd.” Making an impact is never easy … You need to ask yourself …
What’s more important .. the applause of the audience? or the music?
People fear others as a sign of fearing themselves. Fear not yourself… For you are the author of your own novel. How the story ends is completely up to you.

UTW-Thanks for everything, where can people find your work and get in contact with you?
Alex D.-You can check us out at our website www.Liveagl.com or contact us at blog@liveagl.com
Johnny-Liveagl.com -“If you don’t know, then you’re not living the good life” or @JohnnyLiveagl
MisterP-Presently I am managing ELMNT who is a very dope artist from Toronto. I am also writing for LiveAGL which is a hip hop blog.
best way to contact me is by email pearson.jason21@gmail.com I never answer my phone.
Greg D.-You can find me on twitter @ drakes_liveAGL or tumblr @ drakespeare.tumblr.com

The Goodie Bag Blog, ‘A Little Something For Everyone’
How could we not post about this blog, the content on it has a little something for everyone, from the sneaker heads, to the fashionable people, to the music lovers. As the name of the blog state, its a Goodie Bag, for everyone. At Goodie Bag they are always welcome to newcomers and would love to hear your stuff, and your feedback about them. More info about how to contact them is below.
I have had the honor of meeting the man that travels distances to make sure that people know there is a face behind The Goodie Bag Blog. And that man is Peter Coultas. Please take in his Thght Process Q & A below.
Enjoy the blog everyone…www.thegoodiebagblog.ca

UTW-Who are you?

TGBB-My name is Peter Coultas. I consider myself to be a young global leader and help promote positive change. I spend most of my days sourcing and writing content for my blog, traveling, managing my sales and marketing agency The Goodie Bag, and manage a rapper named Vulkan the Krusader.

What is your passion?

TGBB-Travelling and experiencing new cultures.

UTW-What’s your biggest accomplishment to date?

TGBB-Being able to teach and introduce people to new information on a consistent basis.

UTW-Perseverance is key in proving to yourself AND any detractors out there. We tell em’ “You thought wrong” what else would you like to say to any doubters right now?

TGBB-Well to have haters or doubters you must be doing something right; something to make them jealous or envious of your accomplishments. One of my favourite songs “Members Only” by Kendrick Lamar touches on this when he raps, “Look at my life, then look at yours, get some ambition, why you bored?” Honestly, it’s one of the truest things I’ve heard. Don’t get caught up trying to bring people down and be negative or live life as someone else. Instead work on improving your life for the better and help make this world a better place.

UTW-Thanks for everything, where can people find your work and get in contact with you?

TGBB-You can check out the blog at www.goodiebagblog.ca , subscribe to our YouTube at www.youtube.com/TheGoodieBagTV, and get in contact directly with me through Twitter at www.twitter.com/TheGoodieBag or by e-mail at goodie_bag@live.ca. I look forward to hearing from you all.
