"I can't win them all, but I can't keep losing" - Nipsey Hussle
When asked to craft a biography, Topaz reflected on that statement by the late great Nipsey Hussle, one of his inspirations. It was his intelligence, ingenuity, but most of all his burning passion to be great that Topaz has modeled his life around. After completing his associate degree of business from CPCC and recognizing the student debt issue this country was facing long before it was well known (2005). Topaz then dropped out of UNCC in pursuit of his own legacy. What started while he was a high school student in 2000, his passion of music evolved from entertaining people from lunch tables, to building an underground music culture in college with nothing more than a boom box, d batteries, and anyone who had a mix tape. Once he decided UNCC was not for him, this passion of music evolved into his own business, 24/7 Entertainment LLC. Partnering with the premier artists and producers that Charlotte, NC had to offer, 24/7 Studios became of one the longest lasting music studios of the city. But as we all know about life, nothing is forever. The final nails in the coffin were when creative differences lead 24/7 studios to turn down a record deal from an Atlanta based record label. The second nail, when an artist refused to travel to perform his music that was then being played by major DJs. From this point on Topaz recognized the shift that was happening with music into what is now known as the digital age. This led him to building his own website and YouTube channel well before it had become cliché to have one.
Topaz reviews songs, albums, and mixtapes from major artist but mostly for the underground artists that he has championed for. Yet now he finds them from all over the world and does the best he can do for them. This sadly is still too far ahead of its time where today people are simply not ready to forgo their bias for people they hear about over those who make great music. But as that path continues, he also maintains his relationships with people striving for greatness and helps his friend become one of the most popular DJs in Charlotte as well as a regional DJ touring South Carolina, Miami, Atlanta, Chicago, and Raleigh NC. This history taught Topaz many things but the two that are applicable here would be first his history with video media that he brings to this venture of Herbs and Oils Haircare Essentials and secondly, and most importantly, his ability to survive, pushing for the next great thing.
Forgive this bio for being brief, for this story is long from over but I must get back to work because this one seems to be the one to break that losing streak.
