Another thing I do love about my job is meeting the artists behind the music. Earlier this week I had the opportunity to head out to LA and meet up with MANN to be on set for one of his next music videos being released, Gold Herringbone. I could go into detail about what the video is about but here’s a quick explanation of what it’s about. MANN as a kid to the MANN he is now. That was kind of horrible, so I guess you’ll just have to wait for the video.. All I know is that being on set brought back memories of when I was a kid. Kids have it made, they are stress free, careless, and have nothing to lose at their age. All they care about is the moment they’re in and the ice cream bar that makes them happy. Ohhh… the memories (sigh). So as the day went on I got to know a little more about MANN and the people that surround him. His manager, Steve Lobel, is one straight forward individual that knows every aspect of the music industry. Instead of me naming the endless list of people he has worked with, I’ll have my friend Google help you out with that. Good ol’ Google. He also has a dope road manager, Chase, that makes sure MANN is always looking fresh and a DJ that is going to be a legend of a legend. He basically has an all-star team that you wish you could have. If you’ve ever heard people say, “surround yourself by good people and good things will happen,” that is definitely true. So, take that piece of advice and go be that next superstar or whatever it is that you would like to become.

It’s not always the size that matters…

Look who it is! Our good buddy Evan was on set.

Evan also owns a ice cream truck.

Chase couldn’t say no to the ice cream truck… Neither could anyone else.

The kid in the jersey had a pretty bad ass attitude and wouldn’t take no for an answer. He was also teaching us how to use the mute button on a TV remote. Too bad we didn’t have a CLICK remote to make him mute.

Instead of kid, say hello to Adam. He’s anything and everything that is in the definition of a #BAMF. He also played the childhood role of MANN in the video.

I get pretty weak when it comes to the site of a dog. Have you ever seen a dog smile?

A long day of shooting leads to a well deserved lunch. Hot dog wrapped in pizza?

Looks pretty delicious to me!

Jason and Steve are creating a reality TV show while they’re on the road with MANN. From the looks of it and what I’ve heard so far, the show is gonna be a hit!

After a long day of shooting and the sun beating down on us, the day had come to an end. Thank you MANN, Chase, Steve, Jason and everyone else that let us kick it with the crew for the day. We had a blast and can’t wait for the finished video!
