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.

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”

By Ricardo Butler / ReAsOn DiSciPLe

 

As I was reading the verses above for my devotional I finally got a revelation for the music industry (after about 3 weeks of studying just this particular story). I hate to try to force or figure out intellectually what to teach or share, so I wait for however long for the Lord to give me something before I write these types of blog articles.

 

The one thing that exploded revelation for me that got me writing right away was what the name of the village meant from the Greek. The word Capernaum” comes from two Hebrew words. “Caper” means, “a village (as protected by walls).” And “naum” comes from the name of the Prophet Nahum, which means, “comfortable.” Put it together means that these Galileans (which means again, ‘heathens circle’ or ‘gathering of non-believers’) felt protected and comfortable behind their personal space or personal walls. They were stuck in their own comfort zones.

NEWS UPDATE: Official name of the new record label is: MIC Davidical Arts Records! Shhh Don’t tell no body! 

[Read/Study/Understand & Apply Matthew 4:18-22, Mark 1:16-20]

 

By Apostle Ricardo Butler / ReAsOn DiSciPLe

 

The Scriptures say that Jesus told the people of His day,

 

“Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself does; and He will show Him greater works than these, that you may marvel.” (John 5:19-20, NKJV).

 

Remember them old “WWJD” bracelets? They stood for “What would Jesus Do?” Those were basically inspired by this verse.

 

Anyway, I (we all) want to always be doing only what we see the Father and the Son doing so that we may,

 

“… declare we unto you, that ye [ALL of you] also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ.” (1st John 1:3).

 

Anyway, what we are talking about today is recruiting team members for your record label. This is a dual blog. So while I am teaching this lesson, I am actually using this lesson to recruit members for my new label. Oh and by the way, the label is called MIC Davidical Arts Records.

The Top 5 Fans Christian Rappers Can Reach with Their Music

The Top 5 Fans Christian Rappers Can Reach with Their Music

[Read/Study/Understand & Apply Luke 4:16-30]

By Apostle Ricardo Butler / ReAsOn DiSciPLe

It took me almost a month and a half to get revelation on this passage of Scripture for the Hip-Hop ministry, industry, and culture. This is coming off the tail end of my blog article called, “7 Reasons Why God’s Musicians SHOULD Do Better in the World.”

To understand this lesson a little better, I’d go back to that article.

Now the key to understanding the Scriptures for this lesson are the following verses:

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He hath anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He hath sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.” (Luke 4:18, 19).
