#NationalHugDay – Act Like You Know! 1 more hour to go… Enjoy! 😉
“National Hug Day or National Hugging Day is an annual holiday created by Rev. Kevin Zaborney. It occurs on January 21 and is officially recognized by the United States Copyright Office but is not a public holiday.
The holiday was founded on January 21, 1986 in Caro, Michigan, and has since spread to multiple countries. The purpose for the holiday is to help everyone show more emotion in public. There is only one way you are supposed to celebrate the holiday, offer a hug to anyone and everyone you want. Whether you hug a family member or a stranger, the mental and physical health benefits are the same… 😉 “
@terrykennedyfs met @drake via @myspace (see above) and Drake met Lil Wayne via a contact at Myspace.. (see in the Chelsea Lately interview below)
Awesome pattern here? Now… who will YOU meet off the site is the next question… 😉
Drizzy Chelsea Lately interview, he discusses meeting Weezy:
View Drake’s 2009 pre-record deal interview where he talks about TK in his Top 8 below:
“If it wasn’t for @myspace – @LMFAO wouldn’t be here…” says Redfoo
Above is a snippet of the intro speech that Foo mentioned right after he took the stage with an introduction by CEO Chris Vanderhook.
And he’s right…
it feels like just yesterday Randy and I met the duo via Rene at the Winter Music Conference “in Miami B*tch!” at DJ Jazzy Jeff’s Sherbourne Hotel pool party. It seemed like everyone was speaking about them soon after, Nancy of Ice Cube’s Cubevizion called to mention that Barry Gordy’s son and nephew had just started a new group that I had to keep an eye out for. We gravitated to their fun spirit and featured their music long before they deemed their music “party rock” or before they had a record deal.
Was this the same Redfoo that was rapping on the first Black Eyed Peas “Behind the Front” album? I wasn’t quite sure so we had to bring them in the office, of course Earl Johnson helped film the guys stopping by as they caused ruckus, see the video below:
Fast forward to 2011 and the guys have been partyrocking all over the world including Dick Clark’s NYE, the American Music Awards with Justin Bieber and David Hasselhof, and our very own CES Afterparty after the major announcement with Panasonic earlier that day via our CEO’s and Justin Timberlake.
Now the guys have over 100 million Myspace plays…
“Sexy and I Know It” is the #1 song on the Billboard Charts
and we can really say we’ve been there since the beginning – naming their debut album one of the best albums of 2010 and making them our “2011 Artists of the Year…”
Proud of these guys of how far they have come so far, and hope they keep apologizing for “partyrocking” on the sophomore album.
Special thanks to manager Ian Fletcher, Mike Senedgar, DJ Lucky Lou, Andrew Furr, Panasonic, Radi8 and the awesome Lavo staff for helping making this fun event happen…
Skyblu – hope you feel better soon!
More pictures to come soon, here are a few I snuck with my Iphone before the battery died… again!

(VIDEO) @phontigallo (PHONTE) & @9thwondermusic (9thWonder) LIVE from LA 1/6/2012.
I can’t believe it’s been 3.5 years since Phonte performed for us with Big Pooh in Honolulu, Hawaii and close to 7 years since Little Brother was featured on our first Myspace Hip Hop compilation in 2003… How fast time goes by always surprises me, but the fact Phonte & 9th Wonder are able to sell out the Key Club after all this time in 2012 is a testament to a great diverse catalogue that those topping the BIllboard charts would trade in their 1 or 2 hit singles for longevity & timeless music.
Above is a snippet of one of my favorite songs that Phonte performed alongside others from the LB collection “The Listening,” “Minstrel Show,” “Getback,” “Leftback” mixed with a few from his new solo album “Charity Starts At Home” and Foreign Exchange catalogue with producer Nicolay.
But what’s the most entertaining part of a Phontigallo show? Is Phonte himself. A natural comedian that can poke fun at his current life as a rapping father and conversations with God of how he should appreciate that his job as “geting paid to write songs and perform them.” We can all relate to the internal challenges in working careers of passion, and overall we can relate to Phonte because he has the courage to say what we’re all thinking… An artist that grows with his audience.
