If that sounds like someone rooting for the underdog, you’re right up to a point. But some of Savidge’s other views about this film will come as a surprise.

For one, Savidge said the movie has far more scenes depicting police brutality than he had intended. manager Jerry Heller, portrayed by Paul Giamatti as a Machiavellian industry type.

“I’m very happy with the movie and the way it’s rendered,” Savidge hastened to say, “but what happens with biopics is that this is the entertainment business the studio and the producers are trying to make the most commercially viable product they can.”

Savidge, 57, comes from a prominent family of Seattle car dealers he is technically S. Leigh Savidge III who have been here since the 1920s. The third generation Seattleite grew up in Magnolia, “a proud product of the public school system in the era of busing,” he said, until his senior year, which he spent at the prestigious Lakeside School. After graduating, he got a communications degree at Boston University, then left for Los Angeles.

There, in 1986, he founded Xenon Pictures, a production and licensing company that started out distributing ’70s “blaxploitation” movies by genre pioneers like Melvin Van Peebles and Rudy Ray Moore.

“I watched as the hip hop music movement directly affected opportunities for black entertainers,” said Savidge. broke which made stars out of Dr. Dre, Ice Cube and Eazy E Savidge immersed himself in hip hop, first writing and producing the solid, informative 2001 documentary “Welcome to Death Row,” about Death Row Records, founded by Dr. (Savidge’s book, also titled “Welcome to Death Row,” serves as a fine companion to the movie.)

“Straight Outta Compton,” which followed, started life as a story about Eazy E (who died in 1995), his label, Ruthless Records, and Heller, his manager.

“It was primarily a story principally about Eazy E and his relationship with Jerry Heller, with Ice Cube and Dr. Dre and the other guys as supporting characters,” said Savidge.

But once Dre and Ice Cube came on as producers, Savidge explained, the film changed. Sequences were added about Ice Cube’s 1994 movie, “Friday” and the careers of Dre assisted rappers Eminem and 50 Cent; even CNN news footage about Dre selling his Beats headphone company to Apple for $3 billion in 2014.

But more important for Savidge, the final cut “dialed up the law enforcement stuff (with) much more of an emphasis on the riots and things. My own personal view is that obviously these are important issues, but they’re very nuanced, too.”

Savidge’s views about police brutality may be colored by his friendship with former Seattle police Officer Ernest Hall, who served for over three decades on the force before being fired in August for lying about a misplaced firearm.

“Ernie is my very good friend,” said Savidge. “I’ve been in his squad car many times. and I know what he is as a hero in the Seattle area. We don’t often get the stories of heroism that come out of the law enforcement community that gets lost in the noise of what happens in Ferguson, and with Eric Garner and in Charleston. I don’t think you can throw all this stuff in a Cuisinart and say that it’s all the same [Police brutality] definitely influenced this music, but the larger sociopolitical issue is the limited opportunities for people in the ‘hood to transition into a higher economic status. That’s a key undercurrent of this story.”

Savidge said his version of the film was also more sympathetic to Heller, who took 20 percent of Eazy E’s income.

“If [Heller] is guilty of anything, it’s perhaps not adjusting a business deal that Eazy E agreed to,” said Savidge, who interviewed Heller extensively. “You have to ask yourself, would David Geffen have adjusted that deal? Would Puffy [Sean Combs] have adjusted that deal? Would Russell Simmons have adjusted that deal? It was 20 off the top that would have been probably OK if the group hadn’t become so successful.”

Indeed. Money changes everything.

As it flows by the millions into “Straight Outta Compton,” Savidge cautions that while the film is based on a true story, it is still a Hollywood film.

Have you recognized Justin Guarini in Diet Dr. Pepper’s new commercials? The “American Idol” season 1 runner up ditches the big afro and dons a maroon wig as he becomes “Lil’ Sweet,” a tiny heavy metal rocker who delivers “zero calorie sweet treats.” In one ad he surprises a children’s birthday party, and in another he power slides while singing in an office breakroom. Guarini, whom Kelly Clarkson recently admitted briefly dating during their “From Justin to Kelly” days, last made headlines in 2013 when he said sometimes skips meals to feed his kids, but becoming the spokesperson for the soft drink will likely boost his income.

Apple is taking on Spotify with a new paid music streaming service, thanks to its $3 billion purchase of Beats Music and its Beats by Dre headphones. Beats chief creative officer Trent Reznor, best known as the frontman for Nine Inch Nails, is working on rebuilding the app with Beats co founder Jimmy Iovine. Beats originally cost $10 a month, but Apple may attempt to use its iTunes influence to reduce it to $8 $2 less than Spotify. No release date yet, but look for it on the next major iOS update.

beats audio headphones cheap ‘I don’t see a reflection of that at all’ Local group reacts to decline in Indiana’s homeless numbers

“Today I had a call from a woman who will be evicted if she can’t come up with her rent money,” said Exec. Director Susie Thompson.

That’s just one of the stories heard every day by Thompson. While Reach mainly focuses on disabilities, cases of homelessness are also very common for the agency.

“We are seeing such a need and a contiunous need,” she said, “I had to come and address the fire alarm here at the agency. There was a woman on the porch of one of our properties with all of her belongings around her, and because she had a dog she couldn’t go to any of the shelters. So she chose to be absolutely on the street instead of putting her pet at risk. When you see those kinds of things, you recognize that probably people are homeless, but those numbers are not being captured.”

Thompson says referrals at Reach continue to increase. In addition, one of their veterans programs has reached a high of 47 cases for homeless or high risk veterans, the highest they’ve had since the program’s establishment. Department of Housing and Urban Development, homelessness is down in Indiana.

In their study, Indiana communities reported that 5,438 people experienced homelessness on a single night in 2017. That’s a 6.2 percent decrease since 2016.

The study also reports that chronic, or long term, homelessness decreased by 8.8 percent since last year. The homeless veteran population also declined by 7.2 percent.

We asked Thompson about her thoughts on the homelessness decline in Indiana.

“Well it’s new to me,” she said.

“I don’t see a reflection of that at all,” said Martina Butler Hull, Veteran Services Coordinator at Reach.

Both Thompson and Butler Hull say it’s difficult to get an accurate homeless count number.

“One of the other things that we face is that they do the homeless count every year in January,” Thompson said, “People that can be in housing, shelter or with friends in the cold winter, are going to choose to do that. So I just think there’s a whole lot of things going around that make those numbers unrealistic from our point of view.”

“When anybody whose got a place to go, anybody who can pay a couple of dollars and rent a couch for a night, or be taken in by their family around Christmas time and hang out for those coldest parts of winter,” Butler Hull said, “I think you’re missing a lot of people during that time.”

When it comes to understanding homelessness, Thompson says it goes beyond just living on the streets and it can happen to anyone at any time.

“They don’t have an address, they’ve had to give up all of their security and they are living from place to place. In my definition, that is homeless,” Thompson said, “So many people that we work with have a very limited or temporary job, or their income is so limited that one tragedy, one flat tire, one issue and they would be homeless as well.”

Butler Hull says homelessness continues to be a growing problem and she can tell by the new faces in clients.

“It’s almost more difficult when you meet a new person for the first time to realize that it’s still an ongoing problem,” she said, “I could introduce you to people that have stayed in our shelters, since day one we’ve been full.”

While the number of cases continues to go up, money and resources remain tight and competitive. However, Thompson says it’s not enough to stop them and other agencies from trying to put an end to the problem.

“I don’t believe that we’re alone here, I believe that all the agencies are facing these kinds of struggles,” Thompson said, “and we know that funds are limited, and we’re in a community where we’re all competing for the same dollars to help people. It’s just a continuous cycle, and I’m not sure where that ends or how it ends, but we’re going to keep fighting the fight.”

Kristen Graham covers the Philadelphia School District. A native Philadelphian and a product of the school system and Temple University she has written about everything from crime and county government to education since joining the Inquirer in 2000.

Kristen is a Pulitzer Prize winner, part of a team whose “Assault on Learning” series about violence in the Philadelphia schools won the 2012 prize for public service for the Inquirer. Henry School and their chaperones, were injured in the crash Monday. From his room at Children Hospital of Philadelphia, Elijah told his story Tuesday, pausing occasionally to wince in pain from the concussion, cuts, and severed tendons and nerves he had sustained in his hands.

The boy, who loves anime and music and can wait for his eighth grade graduation, was excited about the class trip to Washington. He been talking about it for weeks, and on Monday morning, he got up at his Mount Airy home earlier than his father ever remembered him rising.

was happy, laughing, Elijah said.

And then, the crash. After the bus overturned, Elijah was thrown from his seat. His instinct was to grip his seat, but his hands slipped off. He hit his head and glass sheared his hands and face, but his fall kept a classmate from being more seriously injured, Elijah said.

He looked at his bloody hands. He tried to find his glasses. He tried to hold his phone.

wanted to call my mom and dad, but my phone screen was cracked, and I was bleeding too much, said Elijah.

He dropped his phone. In just a few minutes, someone came to rescue him a man from the three busloads of police officers and recruits that coincidentally were traveling behind the Henry bus. They carried him out of the wreck to an ambulance. Someone wrapped his head and hands. Everything hurt, he said.

Philadelphia Police Officer Thomas Gill, a 28 year veteran of the department, was on one of the buses. At first, he thought the flipped vehicle was a truck. Then he saw the bodies scattered on the highway. He and nearly everyone else was off their bus in a flash.

Gill and a handful of others climbed a steep and overgrown embankment searching for people who might have been ejected. None hesitated to help.

Clara Mae Daniels approached Elijah. Daniels is the widow of William L. Daniels, a Philadelphia police officer killed in the line of duty in 1975, and the mother of Lee Daniels, creator of the TV show Empire. She raised five children alone after her husband was killed.

She was also on one of the police buses. The great grandmother instinct was to head straight for those children, many sobbing and shaking yards from the ruined bus.

There were first aid kits on the police buses, and Daniels and others ripped them open, using bandages and blankets where they could. She pressed cloths to Elijah forehead, trying to stanch the blood until medics arrived.

Some people had not even a scratch on them. Others, like Elijah, who had sat on the left side of the bus, were much worse off.

Daniels called Elijah mom.

Allen steadied when he heard his son voice, he said.

Elijah was treated at a Maryland hospital first, then airlifted to Children’s Hospital his first helicopter ride, he said.

On Tuesday, Elijah was in pain, his hands and arms wrapped in thick layers of gauze almost up to his elbows. He is scheduled to have surgery on his right hand Wednesday.

just feel better when we get him home, said Moton. She and Allen slept at the hospital with their son, staying up all night to help him get settled. Elijah had nightmares about falling off a cliff, they said.

They held his arms when he got stitches for the deep gash on his face, playing calming music to soothe him.

They hope for the best for Brittany Jacobs, the special education teacher on the bus who was critically injured, and for the other four children still hospitalized. They have questions about the car that struck the Henry bus: Why was it going so fast?

“Glee” star Naya Rivera has filed for divorce from husband Ryan Dorsey after just two years of marriage. The 29 year old singer actress is seeking primary custody of their one year old son, Josey, with visitation rights for the 33 year old “Pitch” actor. Rivera revealed in her book “Sorry Not Sorry” that she dated Dorsey before Big Sean and got an abortion after they split in 2010. When she broke up with Big Sean after the rapper allegedly cheated with Ariana Grande, she reconciled with Dorsey and then tied the knot after several months of dating.

Everybody’s going to be kung fu fighting on the big screen again in the upcoming “Mortal Kombat” reboot. Simon McQuoid, best known for directing commercials for PlayStation, Halo and Beats by Dre, is in talks to direct a new movie based on the video game. A 1995 film, following Liu Kang and Johnny Cage in a tournament for the fate of the world, grossed $70 million but its sequel “Mortal Kombat: Annihilation” did not, ahem, annihilate the box office. No word on plot or casting for the new project.

And Jessica Simpson is returning to music, whether you like it or not. The singer reality star teased her comeback on Instagram with a throwback video to her performance of “I Wanna Love You Forever” at the 2001 American Music Awards. “Bring it 2017,” she added, suggesting her first new album since 2010’s “Happy Christmas,” will come out next year.

beats headphone earbuds Advice For Would Be Whistleblowers

beats by dre over the ear headphones Advice For Would Be Whistleblowers

The theory on ‘whistle blowing’ is that the individual is helping the community, and following their ethics, by reporting the offending person or company. The risk of recrimination is very high and usually results in a long and difficult fight for the whistleblower. This battle will likely including legal threats and character assassination.

So what can you do to protect yourself when you do blow the whistle? Having been through this process I have gain some insight on how best to handle the situation.

1. Documentation :: Once you suspect that something is wrong you should begin documenting. Start by taking notes in a log book or note pad. This information will be helpful when you need to tell your story and will provide the detail needed to track down further evidence of wrong doing. Next, start collecting pertinent documents. The best way is to copy documents (photocopy, computers docs, etc). When you think you have enough, double it. Pictures, phone recordings, documents, conversations, e mails are all important and should be noted when possible. There can never be enough documentation.

Many people who don’t know the laws will try to tell you that these methods are illegal. The fact is they are not. In Canada it is legal to record a conversation or phone call as long as one of the parties is participating in the conversation. The removal of documents from the workplace is a gray area. Under normal circumstances removing company information is illegal, however when it is evidence it can be collected. In a Canadian court all evidence will be considered. Check with your governments laws or speak with a lawyer before taking any risks.

2. Minimize Your Exposure :: When you draw up the courage, and support, to finally report the issues there are a few things you need to do. First, it is best if you stay at your job while you report the issues. Ask to be kept anonymous, if possible, but sometimes this can’t be done. Next, get your resume polished up and start sending it out. Then prepare financially by locating your employment insurance office. Tell them that you are blowing the whistle on your employer and you may be fired for it. The idea is to build a repour, so if bad things happen, people will know the facts. Don’t loose that all important safety net.

3. Go with your Instincts :: Most people will tell you not to blow the whistle because there are no winners. They are partially right, but without your courage people will get hurt, the rich will get richer and abuse their powers. You can change that by doing what you feel it right. We often cloud our thinking with other peoples perceptions, but only you can determine what to do. Most of the time your instinct are right and you should trust them. If you listen to others and they convince not to go with your instincts, and then something bad happens,
beats headphone earbuds Advice For Would Be Whistleblowers
you have to live with the consequences, not them.

4. Be Patient :: Nothing happens quickly no matter how fast you want to be done with it. The reality is that things will go much slower than you ever expected them too. The best way to make sure things are moving is to do some research. For example, if you file a complaint against a medical professional, the regulatory College that receives the complaint will have a complaints process. However, this is usually regulated by a government agency that has legislation regarding complaints. In Ontario all complaints must be handled in 120 days. If not, you can contact the Health Professions Appeal Review Board and they will contact the College and accelerate the process.

Some other tips to accelerate the process include contacting your local politician, begin a letter writing campaign to media outlets and compiling your story onto an internet site. Be persistent when dealing with each agency, don’t accept their statements at face value and always follow up.

5. The Media is Not a Solution :: They can help but you have to convince them to write the story. Many times it may take months for them to move. Remember they don’t want any liability, they are a profit motivated company and will only publish story’s that make them a dollar. If your former employer is litigious, they will probably be too scared to publish. Unfortunately it will be to late to help you.

Some of the smaller media outlets may be more willing to help you. They also have the contacts you need to get it published.

6. Prepare for an Attack on your Character and Legal Threats :: The person or company you are dealing with will not let things go easily. The first response will be to discredit you. If you look like an disgruntled employee or someone with a vendetta then your story will be less believable. It’s easy for the person or company to do this. If they were unethical to start with, it’s not a huge leap for them start lying about you after you report them. There isn’t much you can do except try to disprove they’re statements. Use the document you gathered to clearly show that they are the guilty party and you were just being ethical. In the end your efforts will be recognized. You will probably receive a cease and desist letter, don’t be overly concerned as this is most likely posturing. If you are worried, speak with a lawyer.

7. Use Lawyers Sparingly :: Nobody can fight with the passion you have and no lawyer will ever put the amount of effort you already have into your fight. Replying to a cease and desist letter is easy, just stick with the facts, provide the evidence and take the high road. Most lawyers will act like an 600 lb gorilla, your job is to be bigger. In all likelihood they won’t want to take this issue to a public forum, like a court room, especially if you have documented the case very well. That would give you a perfect opportunity to invite the media and lay your case out.

If you need legal advice, get it, but don’t let the lawyer bleed you dry. Have your questions prepared on paper and sit down with the lawyer and discuss the issue. If they charge a minimum of one hour time, use it all. One good thing to do is prepare a short summary of the facts in your case, and fax it in to the law office. Don’t ask question in the letter. Blowing the whistle is stressful enough without having thousands of dollars in legal fees.

Some people will tell you not to let the event consume you. If it does consume you, it will affect other parts of your life. But sometimes focussing your energy can be better if it will resolve the issue quicker. It’s better to throw your whole heart into the matter, rather than fight with yourself. It is difficult to not be consumed. My advice is to simply go with it. The harder you work the quicker the issue will be resolved and the sooner you can get on with your life.

The is no reward for doing a good deed,
beats headphone earbuds Advice For Would Be Whistleblowers
that’s only in movies. In the end however you should have the satisfaction that you made your community or country a better place. People will respect you for your efforts and hopefully inspire then to do something good and that is a reward in itself.

If history is any guide, each will get a Dre bounce. Inextricably linked with gang culture, police violence and the 1992 Los Angeles riots, the band’s crucial early work changed the direction of hip hop while documenting a township both furious and desperate. On “Medicine Man,” the rapper indicts contemporary culture, decrying in one quick verse Internet addiction, underpaid teachers, hip hop fakers, fame, government databases, teenage girls acting like they’re 22, grown men who act like boys and money leeches. Dre warns away copy cats. “Would you look over Picasso’s shoulder and tell him about his brushstrokes? Those opinions, I don’t trust those.”Dre, though, understands the deal, and for reasons both artistic and savvy, he works to stay away from seeming like a “kids these days” grandpa. He does so by ceding to talented upstarts. Most notable is Ventura County artist Paak, who appears on a number of “Compton” tracks. He’s especially potent in “Animals,” on which he and Dre address media invisibility and institutional racism over a crawling DJ Premier co produced track. “The police don’t come around these parts they tell me we’re a bunch of animals,” sings Paak. “The only time they wanna turn the cameras on is when we’re . up, come on.”For his part, fellow Compton rapper Lamar, whose recent album “To Pimp a Butterfly” served as another reminder of the Compton talent pool, confirms his import and skills on three tracks. Eminem honors his mentor on “Medicine Man” and rapper actor Xzibit shines on “Loose Cannons.” Snoop, whose essential early work was produced by Dre, stars in the throwback grooved “Satisfiction”; with creepy voices echoing in the background and a weird beat, the former Dre protege delivers what he calls “another lesson from your Uncle Snoop, what what what.”Such lessons, both musical and lyrical, are all over “Compton,” but equally impressive was the album’s arrival. Keenly marketed to promote both the album and Apple Music’s new platform, “Compton” glided into Dr. Dre fans’ ears with the skill of an expert surfer riding a smooth wave. It was announced suddenly, never leaked and arrived on time as promised,

Young Michigan rapper Connor is signed to Dre’s Aftermath Records, and has been working on his debut album. A 2014 recipient of XXL’s annual “freshman class” list of rising rappers, Connor is on a couple of “Compton” tracks. He’s most impressive on the insistent Dre produced “One Shot One Kill,” where he injects hot energy alongside Snoop. Producer and lyricist Dwayne “Dem Jointz” Abernathy is known for his production work for Rihanna, Christina Aguilera and Brandy. He earns production credits for four “Compton” tracks “Genocide,” “Deep Water,” “Satisfaction” and “Medicine Man” and proves himself as an adept rapper alongside Ice Cube on “Issues.”Justus. The rapper born Justin Mohrle should get a huge bump from his work with Dre here. The artist came up in Dallas, but has relocated to Los Angeles to work with Dr. Dre on his debut album. North Carolina upstart rapper Mez has dropped a few acclaimed mixtapes including his most recent, “Long Live the King,” but he’ll likely get a huge boost from his verses on “Compton,” which arrive during “Darkside/Gone,” “Satisfiction” and “Talk About It.”Anderson Paak. Ventura County raised singer Paak is all over “Compton,” so much so that a few days ago the relative unknown posted a tweet that suggested vindication. “Oh they wanna take meetings now,” he wrote of the so called Dr. Dre bump. South African singer rapper Candice Pillay is known for co writing Rihanna’s “American Oxygen,” and released her debut album in January. For “Compton,” Dre recruited her and her striking delivery to work on tracks “Genocide” and “Medicine Man.”Dre’s “Compton,” his first album since 1999, offered a different kind of entertainment but sparked just as much buzz on social media by a devoted following that stretches from teens to fiftysomethings.

For their patience, the artist born Andre Young, now 50, has delivered what is for all intents a hip hop concept album. It’s an often tense musical indictment that tackles the challenges facing both his hometown and America, gazing back with equal parts nostalgia, wonder, frustration and indignation while luminous beats reinforce the arguments.

The album also displays Dre’s versatility across music, business and culture. He harnesses his ear for talent he helped bring us Snoop Dogg, Eminem, 50 Cent and others, after all to introduce new voices, including Anderson Paak, King Mez and Justus. If history is any guide, each will get a Dre bounce.

But first, the album opens with an introduction.

“Compton was the American dream,” explains an even toned voice, sounding like a Chamber of Commerce professional who describes homes with “a palm tree in the frontyard, the camper, the boat.”

“Temptingly close to the Los Angeles ghetto in the ’50s and ’60s, it became ‘the Black American Dream,'” says the narrator, who then describes the city’s descent and stagnation.

World number one Simona Halep needed almost four hours on court to subdue the tenacious Lauren Davis in an Australian Open cliff hanger to set up a potential clash with Ashleigh Barty.

Halep and Davis slugged out a marathon encounter lasting three hours and 45 minutes on Rod Laver Arena, with the Romanian triumphing 4 6, 6 4, 15 13 to equal the Open’s record for most games played in a women’s match.

She served for the match at 5 4 in the third set but was broken by Davis, who later held three match points when leading 11 10 only for her opponent to fight back to level in the 22nd game.

Both players had emptied the tank by this stage, with Davis needing two medical time outs for treatment on both of her feet, before Halep secured a break to lead 14 13 ahead of serving out the match in the next game. There no other way to describe it. AusOpen

“I’m almost dead,” Halep said in an on court interview .

“I feel that my muscles are gone. My ankle, I don’t know how it is because I don’t feel it any more.

“I’ve never played a third set so long. I’m very happy I could stay and win it . it was very nice we could show such good tennis.”

The 142 minute third set lasted longer than all but six matches so far in the tournament.

The dramatic encounter tied Chanda Rubin’s 1996 match with Arantxa Sanchez Vicario for most number of games in a women’s singles match at Melbourne Park.

Incredibly, Halep served for the set four times but did not hold a match point until the very last point.

Davis was a fabulous contributor to the contest, unfortunately missing out on a first fourth round appearance at a major.

The American smashed 52 winners and was warmly commiserated on her way off centre court.

Halep will play the winner of Barty’s match with Naomi Osaka, to be played later on Saturday on Rod Laver Arena.

Earlier, sixth seed Karolina Pliskova beat Czech Fed Cup teammate Lucie Safarova 7 6, 7 5 to move into the fourth round.

In a match dominated by serve, Pliskova fired down 11 aces and offered up only one break point opportunity as she reached the last 16 for the second successive year.

French eighth seed Caroline Garcia also advanced, beating Belarus’s Aliaksandra Sasnovic 6 3, 5 7, 6 2.

Keys goes through with straight sets winUS Open finalist Madison Keys sent a message that her 2017 season end form was no fluke, running roughshod over Romanian Ana Bogdan to make the last 16.

The 20 year old Keys, the highest seeded American remaining in the women’s draw, did not drop a single service game against the 102 ranked Bogdan in the 6 3, 6 4 victory.

Returning to Melbourne Park after wrist surgery sidelined her from last year’s Open, the 17th seed blasted her way into the fourth round with 29 winners and six aces on Margaret Court Arena.

Yet to drop a set through her first three matches, Keys’ big hitting from the back of the court wore down the inexperienced Bogdan, who was making her first appearance in the third round of a major.

Life for Los Angeles rap duo the New Boyz has changed drastically over the past year. The teens Earl “Ben J” Benjamin and Dominic “Legacy” Thomas ushered in a new dance and dress craze by way of their hit single ‘You’re a Jerk’ off their debut album ‘Skinny Jeanz and a Mic.’ Now the high school friends spend their time on planes, trains, automobiles and running from sometimes unruly fans. While at a performance stop at a Michigan mall, fans overcrowded the 300 person capacity area showing up in groves of over 1,000 and shutting down the concert. Although it definitely sounds like rock star status, moments like those have become the norm in their lives.

“It can be [overwhelming] at times,” Legacy tells the BoomBox of the “jerk movement” sweeping the nation. “I never wanted to be the person where a little girl was like, ‘I don’t like Legacy because he didn’t take a picture with me.’ I know people that met famous people and they just hate them because of the one time they met them. So I always try to give everybody an autograph.”

On this December day, Ben J and Legacy touch down in New York and head straight from the airport to their record label, Warner Bros. Records. There, like many of the days in their schedule, they do back to back interviews. “It’s boring but you have to get used to it,” says Ben J. “You gotta knock it out because once you’re [career is] finished, it’s not going to be there.” You wouldn’t know it by looking at them, but the two are far more reclusive than their high energy songs and dance moves would suggest. Legacy himself is under the weather and the chilly New York City air isn’t doing much to help his ailments. “When I’m on stage I know I’m sick but I still have to put on a show,” he says. “I just adjusted to that, hopping out of that and pretending not to be sick.”

With their press obligations over, the two head out to do some shopping before a taping at BET. “We usually go to Times Square, I don’t know why? I guess we’re just regular tourists,” says Legacy venturing into a nearby H clothing store in search of skinny jeans.

Ben J can’t find an item that he doesn’t like. “When I feel like going shopping, I go shopping,” he says combing through shirts. “I spend about $500 or more on clothes everyday.” By now Legacy has noticed he’s forgotten his credit card and opts to just listen to his Beats By Dre headphones instead of shopping. “I probably bought like four pairs of these [headphones] because I keep breaking them,” he says,

as Ben J continues to shop. The two couldn’t be further apart even though they are standing right next to each other. Lost in his music, Legacy never misses a beat. “I listen to weird music. I listen to rock [music]. I listen to pretty much everything but rap. I listen to rap sometimes, but not as much as I listen to everything else.”

Surprisingly, the two make it through their shopping trip without being noticed. “People notice Legacy first, then they notice me after,” Ben J says. “It’s easier to notice the light skinned guy!” He jokes. They hop in a car and head over to BET, grabbing a few moments of silence (and some much needed sleep) before arriving at the cable network’s studios. “We just chill, we don’t do too much,” Ben J says from the BET green room as Legacy gets a quick trim at the BET salon. He shows off a tattoo of his 1 year old daughter Kemaya before opening a package of Skittles, which everyone says that he’s addicted to. “It’s not an addiction,” Ben J asserts. “I can stop anytime. It’s just my favorite candy.”By days end, Ben J and Legacy are headed off to Baltimore, Maryland for their next show. Instead of taking a plane, they opt for their first train ride out of the New York City’s Penn Station. “[It’s] better than the airplane,” says Legacy. “You don’t have to worry about them saying turn your phones off, and it’s a lot more room on a train than an airplane.” A stranger notices the boys and instead of asking for an autograph, he asks for advice about how to help his son break into the music industry. Killing their chances of sleeping the whole way, Ben J and his manger oblige the stranger. “He was cool, but [I’m] trying to go to sleep!” Ben J says when the man leaves.

For the average teenager a rampant schedule spent with more time away from home, than in their own bed may be hard to adjust to, but for the New Boyz,

it’s just another day in the office.
