Drect leaves Grind Time and airs everything out
Leaving Grind Time
/Lets be real: times have changed. When I first started this, WE NEEDED BATTLERS BADLY. We were taking ANY/EVERYBODY at one point. Of course we used internet footage to scout a large deal of talent, but there was also a lot a groundwork put in.
it wasn’t for Sara Kana the female battle scene may not exist. I remember asking Cortez who the best female was in Fight Klub that we never heard of. He mentioned Sara, but didn’t know how to find her. I hunted her down on good ol’ myspace and told her SHE NEEDED to be a part of the GT movement. She was so excited! I remember when we released that freestyle/callout he did to Lady Luck/Reese Steele – I sent it to worldstar and everything went crazy. Sara battling Gattas was one of the most anticipated battles amongst our staff. Sara battling QB was the start of the new wave of female emcees. Sara has grown to be a close friend and confidant and will always be at my side going into the future. Um … I love you Sara … no homo.
but I remember telling him to look up guys like Casper, Miracle and Hollohan. I had heard about Hollohan and was able to have a few convos with him. I knew Pat Stay may make his way over there, but I really pushed Hollohan and Miracle to contact Organik. Obviously they contacted him lol. I don’t know if he reached out to them before me, but I really wanted to see those guys from Nova Scotia be apart of something huge. Glad they made it.
s mad because I didn’t tell him Gattas was going to look girly, he thought we cheated him. Dude was calling me every day with a new issue: asking me to delete comments – the whole 9. One day he texted me something along the lines of, “You bitch ass nigga. You have been making money off the battle blah blah blah…” Obviously he doesn’t know how much we make off one battle lol, but whatever he didn’t even want to speak to me. His people flagged the video on youtube, so I had to put it on private. Its still on private, I don’t really want to take it off because youtube has warned our account a few times and another penalty could really hurt us. Im not trying to go there. Ami’s manager and I exchanged words on several occasions – shit got out of hand. Ill just leave it at that.
ly in a better business situation now then I was with GT, but lets just take this one step at a time.
