What it do!

We are back together again for the podcast. Last week we skipped one because of the business at my new label in the Lord called Davidical Arts Music Group.

We were announcing our 12 new artists on the roster. So you can check that out by clicking HERE!

In today’s podcast I am playing a recording from an actual music ministry and music business consulting/coaching session of mine so that you can get an idea of how they work and how I can help you with your hip-hop music ministry or your Kingdom record label for Christ.

What’s good famo!
This podcast was promoted from an e-Book I read by Gian Fiero about being an entrepreneur in the music industry. He said,

“After consulting with countless ‘up-start’ independent record labels, my observation is that if the people who start record labels realize that they are in fact starting a business, they would take them more seriously and have greater success.

Below I have pin-pointed the most common problems that lead to the premature demise and consequent failure of most independent labels.”

1. Not understanding how the music industry operates

2. Lack of a business plan

3. Incompetent business partners

4. Inability to cultivate multiple streams of income

5. Lack of adequate financing to do business properly (i.e. marketing and promoting their artists/product) – Gian Fiero

There is much that I could say here. And some links that I forgot, that are in the podcast. So forgive me for that. Other then all these things, let’s learn how to overcome bad business partners in the music ministry and music business.

Apostolic/Davidic Mission, Message, Ministry, MUSIC, Marketing & Movement

6 ‘M’s to Consider in Your Record Label or Music Ministry

[Read/Study/Understand and Apply Matthew 4:23-25, Mark 1:35-39, Luke 4:42-44]

 

By Apostle Ricardo Butler / ReAsOn DiSciPLe

 

A Short Story Intro

 

Jesus was on a mission with His Message of the Government of God, with a ministry that was healing and helping the people, which created word of mouth marketing that drew in crowds and multitudes of people into an apostolic movement.

 

Now you are probably asking, “Well where is the Davidic and the Music portion?”

 

Well that’s because it’s from and for my particular calling. As I have been studying in chronological and historical order from the beginning of the Life of Christ as we continue on to and through the Book of Acts. What I have been doing is reading and studying His life in such an order and seeking the Him for revelation concerning my call and the people in the music ministry, industry, and culture that I am sent to and called to serve. And finally, as I apply what I have been given, I have been reporting on the results or shall I say the fruit of my labor in Him.

Music that Brings Healing to the Music Industry

Music that Brings Healing to the Music Industry

[Read/Study/Understand & Apply Luke 4:38-41, Mark 1:29-34, Matthew 8:14-17]

 

By Ricardo Butler / ReAsOn DiSciPLe

 

Upon reading the three accounts above of Jesus healing Peter’s mother-in-law, which led to Him healing even more people, it brought me back to two other blog posts I wrote before.

 

  1. Creative Influence
  2. Does Your Music Impart or Repel Evil Spirits

 

It was these two blogs that I spoke a little bit about healing by praying over your products and music that you send out. And I also spoke on, using your music to impart God’s Spirit as well as to cast out demonic forces as David did with Saul.

SHAPE Pt 11 Using Five Fold Leadership Gifts in the Music Industry: The Teacher

SHAPE Pt 11 Using Five Fold Leadership Gifts in the Music Industry: The Teacher

This is the eleventh part of a mini-series of blog articles concerning how God designed you in His image. It’s called the SHAPE principle. I am pretty sure you have heard of it by Pastor Rick Warren from both his books The Purpose Driven Life and The Purpose Driven Church. But what I want to do now is see how we can apply the ministry or “body” gifts to the hip-hop ministry, industry, and culture.

 

“Oh yes, You SHAPED me first inside, then out;
You formed me in my mother’s womb.
I thank You, High God—You’re breathtaking!
Body and soul, I am marvelously made!
I worship in adoration—what a creation!
You know me inside and out,
You know every bone in my body;
You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit,
how I was sculpted from nothing into something.
Like an open book, You watched me grow from conception to birth;
all the stages of my life were spread out before You,
The days of my life all prepared
before I’d even lived one day.”
(Psalms 139:13-16, The Message).

 

Your ministry and business are an expression of not God, but of God working in you through your unique divine design and S.H.A.P.E., which are …

 

  • Spiritual gifts (Rom. 12:4-8; 1 Cor. 12:1-11, 28-31; Eph. 4:11-12),
  • Heart {passion, desire, burden, vision, mandate, cross, values, interests},
  • Ability {natural talent, skills, expertise},
  • Personality {temperaments: Driver, Expressive, Analytical, and Amiable},
  • Experiences {family, educational, occupational/vocational, spiritual, ministry, and painful}.

What’s good everybody!

 

Today’s podcast and next week’s podcast is, of course, a two (maybe even 3) part series. You will get to listen in and hear about the new labels called Davidical Arts Music Group & Dead To Flesh Records Inc.

I will be talking about what we expect of our artists, the type of music or sound we are looking for with our artists, a little bit about our mission.

And you will be given the opportunity to submit music after hearing this episode series for consideration to sign with this move of the Kingdom of God!

What’s good fam!

In this podcast I talk about all the terms (example, ‘holy hip-hop’, ‘Christian rap’, ‘Truth music’, ‘gospel rap’, etc) we call ourselves or shy away from, which does more harm then good and can cause division. In reality and biblically using the terms don’t harm us nor does lack of use either. According to Paul you can be all of these things. I talked a lot about this in my last blog post called, “Shaking Up Comfort Zones in the Music Industry”
