DJ Judge Mental & Kaotiq Simfoni “12 Monkeys” by KaotiqSimfoni

Having just dropped off their supremely dope mixtape "God's Black Son", Kaotiq Simfoni, comprised of producers Zimbabwe Kev and Zulu Faz, have joined forces with Atlanta beatsmith DJ Judge Mental for their new project "12 Monkeys". Using the Bruce Willis flick of the same name as inspiration, "12 Monkeys" finds Kaotiq traveling through hip-hop's timeline in order to preserve hip-hop's roots.

So I’ve spent some time thinking about what characterizes so many of Virgin’s successful ventures and, importantly, what went wrong when we did not get it right. Reflecting across 40 years I have come up with five “secrets.”

No. 1: Enjoy What You Are Doing.
Because starting a business is a huge amount of hard work, requiring a great deal of time, you had better enjoy it. When I started Virgin from a basement flat in West London, I did not set out to build a business empire. I set out to create something I enjoyed that would pay the bills.
