In the beginning when you are writing, producing, or collaborating with friends things may be free flowing, super casual, and going perfect with no formal agreement necessary. But I promise, as a lawyer my messiest and most difficult experiences are getting my clients money from situations that started out with friends or fellow group members. Everyone is cool until money gets involved or a project starts to get major traction.
The best way to keep friends and connections in the business is to keep business as business and get everything in writing...let me give you a few MAJOR KEYS....
You posted new pictures to your instagram to promote your brand only to see someone use it for a flyer or a facebook ad without your permission!
You give an artist a rough mix of a track you produced and next thing you know it's up on itunes and spotify without your permission or a split sheet!
You write a song in a session and months later you hear your song on the radio. When you check the credits your name is no where to be found!

Many thanks to Essence for allowing me to share my thoughts on the ongoing silencing of Black survivors of abuse. From the nasty comments posted in blogs about my client, Kitti Jones, and on others about Lupita Nyong'o, extending to the blind eye our sisters, aunts, nieces, and coworkers receive from authorities and family when reporting abuse.

Rolling Stone sat down with my client Kitti Jones and released an indepth profile of her harrowing experience with R&B singer R. Kelly.
I want to commend Kitti for her bravery in stepping forward and no longer protecting her abuser by staying silent. I want to also sincerely thank Jason Newman and the staff at Rolling Stone for the care and depth they took to highlight my client's experience.
Her is experience is only unique in that it involves a celebrity. We all saw the #MeToo hashtags litter our timelines. Thousands experience physical, sexual, emotional, and psychological abuse everyday.
