Hey! I have been singing for some years now. I really want to get my music carrer started. I want to do music in Spanish and of course English. How can I get the ball rolling, not only that but get noticed by recording companies?

Posted by: Darlenis | Jun 6, 2005 5:07:48 PM

I really want to sing. It's my dreams and everything else in between. And if I can just get a chance! I heard somethings about Bad Boy Latino, if this is true, I want to be able to get a chance to be heard.

P.Diddy suck his music is now one of the rappers and the bad boy record lebal is also lame.I think that the media should do something about him and his label.I also think that he should bring back Da Band and some of the other former artists.Then he would probably be on top again.

P.Diddy I live in Oklahoma and I also know that you have a new group "B5" which is one of the hottes groups. I really like Kelly but thats besides the point I was wondering if you really read theses comments that could you please come on tour to Oklahoma,Tulsa. Thanks A.S.A.P.

I have followed Diddy on all his adventures. Such as his journey to beat Oprah's running time, making of the band 1-3, and more. I really want to be part of the Bad Boy family. I do not know the right people but I am willing to perform for anyone who will listen. Where can I send a demo? God Bless.
