Nice end to a Nice Summer

Hey there folks I'm back.

Not sure who has been paying attention or reading but JENESIS has been doing its thing. If you live in a box we have been putting up some work. We finally dropped the Women's Issue on the site. If I may say so myself it's a great issue with some inspirational women.

Second we dropped the small issue on the 15 Mins of Fame winner, Melanie Wilmot. She was owed it and knocked it out the park. Jordan does his best work continually all the time. JENESIS is blessed to have such a good photographer.

Speaking of JORDAN, He will be doing his much looked for September photography issue again and it should be up by Sept 1st or 4th, however we get the greatness together.

Fab 5 Ent is having their 4th and Final Pittsburgh Anniversary event over the Labor Day weekend. It should be a good one. I've known those gentlemen for about 4 years and they continually made great events for these young college adults to attend and enjoy there selves. Personally meeting Barry at school, I'm glad they have been successful.

D. Warren is going to soon be dropping his women's clothing line Mary Lou. The time is to be determined but when it will know. We are doing our best to help him out in anyway he needs it.

Ideal PR is making me work day and night haha. They have been a vital help to us.

But to be more frank, we need more readership. But our young guy Quentin is going to revitalize our street team and have the campuses aware of JENESIS again. Keep it locked with the best and we will keep giving you the best.

Stop, Chill, Relax

Back with a quick update for all you.

The voting for the 15 Minutes of Fame model contest is up and running right now. There has been a nice response since going up only 5 days ago. In two weeks we will be having the official event at Privilege August 2nd partying it up. It will also be a going away party for Brandon Westbrook. So if your trying to be a certified stand on the coucher for the night, come through and celebrate.

Also the new July Issue is up. The issue features upcoming producer Nicolay from North Carolina by way of The Netherlands. He has been very busy with his last production of Time:Line with beautiful singer Kay. He has been getting nice reviews of the album. Nicolay has worked with the like of Little Brother, Supastition, Masta Ace, Strange Fruit Project and Zion I. If we are lucky he may make another appearance to the Shadow Lounge in the near future.

Just added to my links list is Mark Dockery aka Holaday Doc now has a new blog that you should check out at Also another friend of mines Smurf Smith has a blog that gives you a mighty good if I say so glance back at all the things that made Hip Hop great at

Only things left to say is watch for the new promo issues to hit the street, watch for our Happy Hour at the Shadow Lounge, if you need new music to check out I suggest you listen to the new Coldplay and the new Kid Cudi mixtape, and look at this funny photo of Phonte of Little Brother as he did a 6 or 7 song cover of his favorite songs in the 80's.

Take On Me hahaha

It's the up and coming!

Hello everybody

It's getting hotter and hotter as the day's go by.

This Friday is the ending of the first round for the "15 Mins of Fame" model contest for the August Women's Issue. There has been a good response so we are hoping it continues throughout the month going into August and the official party for the winner will be at Privilege Ultralounge August 2nd 10 pm - 2 am.

Congrats to one of our journalist Brandon Westbrook for grabbing his job at the Miami Heat. He will be doing marketing work for them starting in August. Hopefully he is still here to party and get sent away correctly.

Also be on the look out for my interview in the Pittsburgh New Courier done by Omar Abdul. Thanks to him for helping us get our name out there a little better as we have been working to get into other news publications around the city.

New Issue coming this Tuesday. Be on the look.

Until next time

The Frustration

I'm back again this month

We aren't doing the 14.5 Issue for June for two reasons;

1. July just seemed to catch up to us so fast. I think it's because we kind of slacked on the deadline of the June issue since we had to make sure everything was cool with it.
2. The people in the 14.5 Issue seemed to slack on the information we asked them to send back preventing a 14.5 Issue.

oh yeah Jordan Beckham went on vacation also.

Guess we need to work on our consistencies within the magazine. At least we will be having a model contest coming together, may be having a monthly happy hour at AVA Lounge, and soon to really be able to launch some things with the street team. Oh and some more promotional prints will be coming soon.

Just gotta keep working and praying.

Til next time

Upcoming Issue

The June Artist taking forever lol. But it's all good as you know we gonna come with the heat. We have our first good video interview with an artist rather laptop dj named Girl Talk. I didn't know who he was until Jeff and Kate (our new journalist and video journalist) brought the name up. Dude has some good work and his shows are crazy. You will see in the video he keeps clubs rowdy.

Oh yeah the site has/maybe back up but was down due to a fire in our outside server company. They said a electric circuit started a fire that ended up knocking down walls. Crazy. They said the servers weren't hurt though thank God. We would have had to go to a all new server I think and re-put up everything! Maybe I'm just exaggerating ha.

Talk to you peoples later. Watch out for the "Get Down or Lay Down 08'" Summer Campaign.
