CrazyDopetastic™ has been off & on hiatus for a while recently. Focusing our time on production, we’ve kinda neglected the blog. With a small team of talent, we simply don’t have the manpower to do both. So we’ll be focusing heavily on content production!
With that, here is the latest from CrazyDopetastic™! We are the producers of —THE BLACKMAN TOUR— webisodes & documentary! Following Tuan X on tour throughout the months of April - June, we’re documenting his journey & life.
Starting with webisodes of each day on tour, expanding on that footage, after his tour, we’ll be releasing a full documentary. With interviews & candid moments with Tuan X & his compadres, you’ll get an amazing glimpse of this passionate driven performer.
We’re also creating a music video for “Anatomy Of A Hustler”, a single off of his 1st album, Of Mice And Men - EP. The energy of this track rightly reflects the fervor of this tour.
We invite you to take part in this journey. Subscribe to Tuan X’s YouTube & follow the tour as it unfolds.
CrazyDopetastic™ is working on more original content in the weeks to come. From interviews to reviews to features. While our time is focused on production & the moving image, we’re definitely not abandoning the site.
CrazyDopetastic™ is pretty excited to present to you, The Me & Tu Show.
A reality show following the lives of, The Art Initiative co-founders, Melly B. & Tuan X. This CrazyDopetastic™ couple share their lives, insights, quirkiness & adventures with you in what is a real pleasure to watch.
We take into account modern trends & online content consumption, so each episode is brief, from 2 - 10 minutes. We’ve also included very short video in the form of “6 Seconds of Randomness.” These extremely brief videos will share random interesting moments between the two in 6 seconds or less. This is thanks to the CrazyDopetastic™ app called Vine; what we feel will be the future of random moment sharing.
We’ll continue to tweak & improve the show as time goes by. We hope you enjoy this project we bring to you. Subscribe to the YouTube channel & stay tuned.

Welcome to The CrazyDopetastic™ Awards! Where we’ll be honoring & celebrating what we’ve considered the best in music & film for the year of 2012. With a little bit of help from you.
We set out to scour through tons of content ranging from the obscure to the obvious & take a look back at this CrazyDopetastic™ year in art.
Ahmad is back, with a whole new sound & vibe for the release of his short film, Good Meat Makes Gravy. With tracks produced by the likes of GoonRock (producer of LMFAO’s smash hits “Sexy & I Know It” & “Party Rock Anthem”) & L.A. powerhouse Shane Eli, Ahmad takes us on a journey as a struggling musician. Faced with the trials of love, he journeys out on his own; to chase his dreams and, perhaps, change his life forever.
It’s been 26 months since the release of Ahmad’s 2nd solo LP, The Death Of Me, a revealing look into the life of the adult MC. There he gave us a glimpse into his personal life, trials & perspectives. And we all know of his debut LP, Ahmad, back in 1993; which garnered the commercial hit “Back In The Day”. His new music seems to fuse both personal insight with a relevant commercial sound, in a unique blend that comes across as distinctly Ahmad.
Check out the CrazyDopetastic™ premiere of Ahmad’s Good Meat Makes Gravy, the short film, below. I also got a chance to sit back down with Ahmad (check out our first encounter) & inquire about his new approach. Check out the interview & “Read More”.
Oh, how I’m sure a small few of you are going to wish you didn’t drop hundreds of dollars on nosebleed seats for the Jay-Z concert in Brooklyn after this post.
Jay-Z will be streaming his final night in concert at the new Barclays Center Arena in Brooklyn, NY, live & for free on YouTube. It’s all in efforts to promote his brand new YouTube channel, JayZsLifeAndTimes - an extension of his lifestyle website, Life And Times. So for everyone who couldn’t make it to the concert, tune in this Saturday at 9:30PM!

I spend hours on YouTube searching for inspiration, creative projects and new things to try. It didn’t take too long for me to happen upon videos of Girl’s Next Door - a pole dance soiree - and one of the most prolific, innovative and creative artist I’ve come across, Kelly Yvonne.
Tuan X (Founder of CrazyDopetastic™ & CEO/Co-Founder of The Art Initiative) & I visited London last month to perform & promote himself as a singer, MC & songwriter. We stopped by London’s VOX Africa TV for him to take part in an interview with Henry Bonsu for his show, ‘Shoot The Messenger’.
Check it out.
