RYG: Have you encountered any negativity? How did you overcome?
JM: Of course I had other labels steal my artist or my artist in fights or drama with other artist. I overcame it by staying true to what I believe in what my label have to offer.

JM: Stay true to yourself and remember to stay humble, smile everything will work out if you stay different. #mogulfacts #factsonly #bossstatus
