Next on the Tastemakers series is Truth Studios.
I’ve known Glenn (far left in the photo) for awhile. We have mutual friends, and when we got hip to each others’ work life, we linked on another level. I have an insane amount of respect for him. Sure, he’s worked with damn near every hip hop artist coming out of LA. But I see him as a solid, salt of the earth kinda dude, that consistently affirms my decision to follow my dreams.
For the Tastemakers interview, we interacted with the entire Truth team (Nick, Glenn, and Polyester). We learned of how they came to be, how their wall of fame is filling up fast, what their personal and business goals are. There is something to be said about their dynamic, which I couldn’t quite articulate in the feature. I’ll try here. They have a support system, a kind of trust, that’s refreshing and almost envious to witness. They each spoke so highly of each other at different times, not only about the talent they bring to the table, but about the admiration they have. When we went to the industry panel that featured Glenn as a speaker, Nick was there, engaged. Poly only relies on Glenn or Nick to work on his own project. They’ve sacrificed so many things together, because there’s nothing they’d rather do than be in their studio. Even rarer than that commitment is finding a business partner(s) that can stay your best friend, your brother, for so many years.
It was a pleasure profiling Truth Studios. Check out the full feature HERE.
