He recently did an interview with BlackEnterprise.com about his decision to become a lawyer.
Here what he had to say:
The short version is my career in the music business made me want to study entertainment law. I want to be the eyes and ears for artists that are coming into the game and don’t have a clue about the music business and recording contracts, deal points, 360 deals, publishing, etc.. This is something that I didn’t have when I signed my deal, so who better to guide someone on these aspects of the business than me – someone who not only has experience as an entertainment lawyer, but who also is an established recording artist, as well.
In January he and his wife went on to form LLeft Entertainment, an independent entertainment company. LLeft provides quality production in film, web television, book publishing, and music products, as well as select legal services.
