I gotta disagree on this one. Great speech Charles but you're talking to a brick wall.

If Charles keeps making these videos, while creating his dope ass content, he will continue to influence successful people.

Take Stephen Silver. His message is a direct echo of Charles influence. Even if Stephen doesn't want to admit Charles was his teacher and obvious philosophical influence, the fact remains true. I was there to testify.

When you have fists as large and as strong as Charles', you can bust through brick walls effortlessly!

Brick walls come down the same way they went up.

Brick by brick. ;)

Recording the video was fun. I forgot to turn on the lights with this one which is why it came out dark but that's okay. It's the message that counts. If it helps some artists out there then great! If not then they still have their jobs if they're happy working that way. Staying at one studio for 20 years is an accomplishment in itself. Should've mentioned that but will find a chance to make that point later on.

Sooner or later even entrenched artists must move on. Develop your brand and your franchise. Create your content. Attract a fan base. Build your independent economy!

The earlier the better. Don't do it out of fear! Do it with happiness and because you enjoy it.

Evolving isn't like "waving a magic wand" like some of the Union leaders think people expect.

Freedom will be your one greatest work of art. It will take time to master and it starts with the first step.

Sometimes, other people walls get in your way..thats where the big fist comes in handy..hahahaha

or you can just walk around it...or, walk through it like a magician. Depends on your skill level.
