About G the Mastermind
Growing up in Northern Chicago and being classically trained on the piano at age six is not what the modern day youth would classify as being a hip artist. However, G The Mastermind knew from an early age that he would incorporate his honed skills as a composer, a producer using his trained ear and his engaging falsetto tone to create continuous musical masterpieces. While attending the illustrious Howard University, G The Mastermind discovered his passion for engineering and producing an array of musical genres. His determination and drive led him to become one of the top engineers in Washington D.C.
With solid street support and a growing social media presence, G The Mastermind became the soulful tour opener for one-time Bad Boy Entertainment artist King Los.
As a producer, audio engineer and artist, G The Mastermind’s credits include working with household names like Gucci Mane, Rocko, Future, Styles P, Shy Glizzy, Young Dolph , Fat Trel and many more. G The Mastermind’s success has led him to be the creative director for the largest female battle rap company, Queen of the Ring. One of his records “Murder She Wrote” features legendary female emcee’s Babs Bunny, Shawnna, and Gangsta Boo.
While continuing to master the production of music, G The Mastermind will be releasing his sophomore project called “This is for you” in late September under the MCR/ADA/Warner Brothers Label giving the viewers more to his sultry and melodic vibes, with “You Remind Me” being his first single on that project.

BMI and ASCAP, the country’s two leading performing rights organizations (PROs) collectively representing more than one million songwriters, composers and music publishers, have joined forces to fight the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) recent interpretation of their respective consent decrees and to push for consent decree reform. United in their belief that the DOJ’s decision to mandate 100% licensing will cause unnecessary chaos in the marketplace and place unfair financial burdens and creative constraints on songwriters and composers, the two organizations are pursuing a joint campaign: BMI through litigation and ASCAP through legislative reform.
BMI today announced it is taking legal action and has initiated the process to challenge 100% licensing in Federal Court. Concurrently, ASCAP announced that it will take the lead for the two PROs in pursuing a legislative solution to ensure the continued availability of fractional licensing as well as other remedies to the outdated consent decree regulations that disadvantage songwriters and composers in the digital age. In its recent public statement, the DOJ itself called for potential legislative relief.
Mike O’Neill, President and CEO of BMI, said, “The DOJ’s interpretation of our consent decree serves no one, not the marketplace, the music publishers, the music users, and most importantly, not our songwriters and composers who now have the government weighing in on their creative and financial decisions. Unlike the DOJ, we believe that our consent decree permits fractional licensing, a practice that encourages competition in our industry and fosters creativity and collaboration among music creators, a factor the DOJ completely dismissed. As a result, we have no recourse other than to fight the DOJ’s interpretation in court. It won’t be easy, and we know it will take time, but we believe that it is the right thing to do and in the best interest of the industry at large.”
Elizabeth Matthews, ASCAP CEO, stated: “The DOJ decision puts the U.S. completely out of step with the entire global music marketplace, denies American music creators their rights, and potentially disrupts the flow of music without any benefit to the public. That is why ASCAP will work with our allies in Congress, BMI and leaders within the music industry to explore legislative solutions to challenge the DOJ’s 100% licensing decision and enact the modifications that will protect songwriters, composers and the music we all love.”
In a pre-motion letter to Federal Judge Louis Stanton, BMI advised him of a proposed motion to interpret and potentially modify its consent decree. Specifically, the letter requests the following relief:
The full copy of BMI’s pre-motion letter can be found HERE.
By way of background, in a disappointing conclusion of a more than two-and-a-half-year formal review process, the DOJ recently announced that it has declined to update the 75-year-old ASCAP and BMI consent decrees that regulate how the organizations operate. Instead, it decided to implement a new requirement mandating that each PRO license songs in their respective repertoires on a 100% basis – upending the long-standing industry practice of fractional licensing and creating logistical and legal challenges that didn’t previously exist for hundreds of thousands of music creators across the country.
For all my songwriters who have Publishing Deals or in the midst of negotiating one please be VERY AWARE of the “Consent Decree”. Know within the next few months your affiliated PRO and your Music publishers and the federal government will make MASSIVE CHANGES in the way you will be able to coexist and get your mueic placed including but not limited to the percentages that you will be making.

Thick Skinned Rey Fonder Has The Right Kind Of Strength To Succeed
“I’ve never been one to judge another artist’s music, the fact that they created it and shared it with the world with all the critiques and opinions of today is amazing to me. It takes a strong person to do any form of entertainment.”
Check out the interview with Rey Fonderexclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: Where did this all start? Tell us about your journey in the entertainment business.
Rey Fonder: Music began for me in college. Before everything was about basketball until I got injured and had to face my own reality. In college a couple friends and I started this group called KPC and were performing and handing out projects on campus. The feedback was dope so I thought to myself, why not pursue this.
I moved back to Atlanta after college and started diving into songwriting after learning the business a little more and all the doors opened from there once I understood songwriting and publishing. That’s probably when I started taking music serious. I went to engineering school and learned how to record myself, mix and master all my own music.
What would be your biggest piece of advice for the young kids out there trying to do what you do?
I would tell kids to have fun of course and be yourself completely with your music, but make sure you learn the business. I’ve seen so many artists only focus on wanting to be in front of the camera versus making sure their paperwork and business was handled so they can have something to fall back on in this music industry. I would tell them to make sure they understand publishing and to have a dope team around them too.
What are some of the hardest challenges and tasks in your position?
At this point it’s making sure I experience life outside of music so my music can keep being fresh and dope. I pretty much stay to myself outside of my team and I don’t have bad energy and vibes around me so that’s a plus. When you have albums and things you want to put out, I had to learn patience especially when other hands are involved.
As an artist you might not be in that space anymore and yet you’re reaching back trying to recapture that feeling when you first made the project and wanting to put it out then so you can move from those emotions and continue to create something better each time.
We all know the entertainment business is very tough, but what do you find is the best way to promote and advertise your music?
Tough is an understatement. I’ve found that word of mouth is the best way to market your music. You got to put products out there constantly because the game is oversaturated and people will forget about you quickly. Content is king and learning stuff like keywords, SEO. Collaborating with other artists and cross promotion is important as hell these days.
Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans?
I’m from Atlanta which outside of LA is like the hub of music now. Everywhere you go in Atlanta somebody does music. I think in a sense fans and people alike are numb to those who make music. The new artists in the city are dope like Young Thug, Future, Uzi Vert, Migos, K Camp, Scotty Atl, Loose Voltage, Willie Hyn, Bosco, Cyhi, OG Maco, and Raury. All of those artists have their own lane to me. I think the fans will show up and support you if you’re different and got good vibes in your music.
Where do you see yourself a year from today?
A year from today I will be touring, have more songwriting placements, and be a more well-known and even more respected as a genre bending artist. Great things take time, just got to keep pushing. This is the best time now to be creative and really express what you really feel.
Who and what were your biggest inspirations? Who do you look up to in today’s world?
People pushing through inspires me. I like seeing people win. Some of my biggest inspirations are Kobe Bryant, Quincy Jones, Stevie Wonder, Hans Zimmer, Rick Rubin, Outkast, Incubus, my pops, and my close circle of friends.
How do you feel about the music coming out today? Do you like it?
I definitely like the music that’s out today because there aren’t any rules with it. These artists are just throwing out whatever they feel with their art and its dope to me. You never know what experiences these artists go through or the world they grew up in. At least try to put yourself in their shoes and gain perspective. I’ve never been one to judge another artist’s music, the fact that they created it and shared it with the world with all the critiques and opinions of today is amazing to me. It takes a strong person to do any form of entertainment.
