In this episode of Spin Deluxe, Its Silky’s BDay, and we talk about Kanye’s rants in London, Pitbull goes back at Wayne, Lil Poopy banned on youtube, Golfwang, and we go over the the Complex Top 25 Posse Cuts.
I just wanted to share this story of Booker T. Jones, producer of the Otis Redding song “Try A Little Tenderness” which was sampled recently on the Jay-Z and Kanye West song “Otis” off their album “Watch The Throne” which is a pretty awesome album. I enjoyed the interview and was a little inspired by the story as well as the hard work and dedication Booker has put into his career and continues to put into his music. I thought I would share with you and hope it inspires you as well!

Time passes by and he starts to see clear: the climb to his Throne of Dreams is finally here.
– Angel B
All of us at one point hold on a dream. We want to be successful artists, basketball players, pianists, dancers, novelists, actors. We may take it seriously for a little while, obsessing over it, letting it consume our thoughts and daydreams. But most of us, as reality seeps in, let go of the dream. We begin to settle down with our life, conforming to the endless cycle of working, paying bills, sleeping, and working again.
But the Dream never dies. It stays sleeping during the day and comes out at night when you close your eyes. Whether terrifying or inspiring, the Dream calls out to you, provoking you, pushing you to reach for it, to follow it to the Throne of success that awaits for you. Listening to the voice of the Dream, you must make a choice. Keep the life of security and conformity, or travel into the darkness to find your awaiting paradise.
Welcome, then, to The Throne of Dreams. The Throne of Dreams, a visual-audio collaboration between music artist and producer Angel B and graphic artist Chris Colon, explores the journey one protagonist takes to reach his kingdom of success. Broken down into five tracks with five corresponding pieces of artwork, this project details
- The choice of the Dreamer to pursue his Dream and reach his Throne (“Climb”)
- The struggle and obstacles the Dreamer faces in pursuing his Dream (“Chase”)
- The Dreamer’s fascination with his Dream and his resistance towards leaving it (“Please Don’t Wake Me Up”)
- The Monster of Fear and Doubt that blocks the Dreamer’s pathway to the Throne (“Nightmare”)
- And lastly, the Dreamer’s achievement of success and his resolve to keep pushing forward to maintain his paradise (“Throne”).
An eclectic album that utilizes an array of genres, from Pop to Hip-Hop to Classical, The Throne of Dreams is an inspiring look into what motivates the human soul to reach for the impossible. Enjoy.

“Throne” is the fifth and last single from Throne of Dreams project, the visual-audio collaboration between music artist and producer Angel B and graphic artist Chris Colon. This piano and orchestra heavy track provides a vision for the future of our protagonist — the Dreamer.
“Throne” takes the audience to the future, where the Dreamer is looking back at his Climb to the kingdom of his success. He reflects on how much he has struggled and learned along the way to the top, and realizes that now that he is at the top, he still must struggle to maintain his success. But as he expresses by the end of the song, the dreaming never ends: his only direction is forward.
An inspirational end to an artistic look into what drives the human soul towards success, “Throne” shows that success, if we reach for it, is a never-ending journey that produces its own rewards along the way.
