Let’s Face the Music!


Let’s face it, even though you may or may not have ties to the music business – you have heard some of the horror stories associated with the business. Although many lives are continuously lost, many aspiring artist are still sending in their demos and running to give their musical works away hoping to make their dreams come true.
For decades we have all heard about artist not getting paid but the first thing you think is one of the following:
1. They did not have their copyrights or they failed to protect their work…Or
2. They did not have legal representation…Or
3. You may actually believe that the individual was at fault….Or
4. You may think they it would never happen to you.
I used to think this was the case but I was so WRONG! 
Although many have protected themselves in every way, many artist, writers and producers have been denied the opportunity to even pursue their claims and are forced to fight for their rights.
1. It’s not just a simple matter of another artist taking credit or a simple issue of copyright infringements. It’s not  just about the music!
2. The initial lawyer will encouraged signing a standard contract with low figures. They may not tell you that when the deal sours or goes bad, that you will need tens of thousands for a legal retainer.
3. They will not tell you about the major issues with ‘conflict of interest between entertainment attorneys within the music industry.
4. They will not tell you about the fact that the courts will not even review your evidence because the ‘system’ is set in place to deny you any other recourse.
5. They will not tell you those behind the scene will be putting too much emphasis on trying to use the music for dual purposes and the ‘double dealing.’
6. They will not tell you that those rights that you believe that you have and are counting on having are simply non-existent when your claims involves millions of dollars and well connected individuals.
Dual Purpose Use: This is when after signing, the artist works are utilized against the aspiring artist in an effort to induce harm and even suicidal responses from the helplessness of being unable to secure representation or assistance.
Double-Dealing: This is when the aspiring artist’s compositions, lyrical works and compilations are spread across multiple labels for use and to be ‘gutted!’ In some cases, this is after falling victim to the ‘twisted’ contract presented by local production company or some want to be ‘slick’ producer. 
FYI: Personally, I was encouraged by legal counsel and I only signed a single 50/50 co-publishing agreement with a major music publisher- Zomba. 
There were no other management or production agreements to justify non-payment for the numerous works that I submitted under Seven West Productions. 
I never received a dime for all of my ‘works’ but I was forced to listen to my ‘gutted’ works reach the top of the charts. However, I received many threats, persecution and intimidation methods used to insist that I surrender.
Apparently, it is an acceptable behavior to refuse compensation for many individuals. 

I guess that the thought of actually paying people for their hard work and encouraging treating aspiring artist like human beings is completely out of the question.
The truth of the matter is that they give you so many enemies and physically hurt too many people to the point where you have to deal with an over-whelming amount of opposition. Don’t be naive and believe that these entities won’t take it to the ‘streets!’ 
Of course, there are many different groups that can actually provide some kind of shelter but it depends on how far down the figurative ‘rabbit-hole’ that you have gone. It depends on how much damage has ensued while you were tending to your ‘wounds.’
Remember, this ‘business’ has eyes and ears everywhere and they saw you coming before you arrived on the scene. 
Being properly aligned doesn’t necessarily ensure that all your dreams will come true instantly. 
In fact; when you stand up to defend your work, you may be interfering with someone’s million dollar deal or cause conflict amongst very dangerous groups. 
Instead, these subjected artist, writers and producers are forced into ‘gladiator’ type scenarios where hate filled crowds provoke and prepare to be entertained by the violence among friends and foes. Each, ferociously fighting each other in a battle to the death over royalties.
These aspiring artist, writers and producers must first get through a gauntlet paved with haters whose sole purpose is to destroy and prevent you from progressing or getting anywhere and even worse.
My point is that I don’t think that you can really compare the music industry to other industries because other industries are held accountable when they blatantly violate individuals.
This cannot be said about the music business because they operate with impunity for decades! Their victims deserve more than being accused of being bitter or embittered.
It is your decision as to whether you choose to ignore the recommendations and warnings regarding conducting business from experienced individuals those in that industry.
Every week, we provide information related to shedding light on the darkest parts of the Music industry and we expose the ‘system’ that allows these illegal activities to continue to operate with impunity.
I would like to encourage you to read up on what’s really going on before you jump in with both feet. Even if you feel like you are well connected and have support, be prepared and fully equipped by learning about the tactics and methods used to steal lives.   
In my articles and books, I provide actual steps that can be taken in order to avoid pitfalls and I provide information to assist in preventing victims.
For more detailed information, please review previous articles and actual documentation which supports all accusations and proves unethical, illegal activities which are supported by the ‘system’ that is supposed to protect your rights!

Throughout the decades, it has been said that I have been subjected to public humiliation and dehumanization because I have not graduated college. 

I can assure you that not only have I produced proof of blatant deliberate violations of my human and civil rights inside Music Business: It’s a Dirty Game, Music Murder and Mayhem – A True Story, INVISIBLE: Living in America without Rights -2014!I’m going to need whoever it is that is doing drugs while reading from a script to stop lying to the public!

Stop lying and blaming my deliberate oppression on a lack of a college degree. Going back to college is not going to make greedy lawyers, politicians, racist, liars, bullies and revenge seekers – recognize me as a human being.

Going back to college is not going to make the courts and this system miraculously recognize my valid substantiated claims (that were previously ignored).

Going back to college is not going to erase the lies and blame that has been placed on me and that I have been forced to carry by ruthless cowards!

Going back to college is not going to miraculously give me the rights that I have had repeatedly deprived and stolen from me.

Going back to college is not going to erase the murders of innocents and otherwise; committed by the greedy, the haters and the revenge seekers.

Going back to college is not going to make me forget that a legion of my fellow American citizens, co-workers, friends and family attempted to induce suicidal actions as a result of vilification, alienation and oppression just so that they can continue to hide the truth.

I am glad to disappoint and I would never; especially, when I know better.

My plight is not just about a broken heart, it’s not about greed, and it’s not about revenge. It’s about obtaining true freedom from oppressors who have deliberately used money, power and positions to create a form of enslavement.

My Titles demonstrate decades of torture and abuse. 

…IT’S NOT OKAY!

Bragging rights

I have survived decades of deliberate violations and heinous acts bestowed upon me by a system that betrays it’s own! 
It would appear to many that I am not bothered by my situation simply because I am not in a constant state of panic and running around like a maniac Guess what, you won’t never see that again. 
I have already done that dance. In fact, I have resorted to trying every method known to mankind to obtain freedom.
I will never give those the satisfaction of seeing me tremble at the horrific events that I have been forced to be personally subjected to. 
Just because I am not spending every day in an uproar does not mean that this is acceptable. Just because I am not running to the same groups that assisted with initiating this madness does not make this acceptable. 
I am so thoroughly disgusted at all of the events that have transpired but I will not allow my health, my mental or emotional stability to be affected because of my current ‘situation’ that is being misrepresented to the public.
This is not okay and no one should have to be subjected to this way of life.

If you have already researched books on the subject of the music business
then you have found that a lot of the books that are written denouncing the
industry are portrayed as fanatical, demonic and are downright comical. 
 
Personally, I am certain that there is a degree of evil involved in the
business and it is possible some individuals who would sell their souls for a
successful career but I didn’t look twice at those titles. 
 
It is almost as if those books are deliberately, readily accessible but the titles
that would truly provide insight are not as easy to find. 

Well, look no further…

MUSIC, MURDER AND MAYHEM

By Tiwanda ‘Ne Ne’ Lovelace
An un-cut non-fiction description of how the music entertainment business
murders its artist and writers quietly behind the scenes.
People always say that the Music Business is a dirty business but they have
no full idea of to what extent. They assume that these artist just sign bad
deals that allow producers and managers to take everything but this is not
always the case.
It is important that people understand the ‘game’ and how it ultimately
affects others. They cut, chop and shop your work. Meanwhile, chaos ensues
when these victimized human beings wreak havoc fighting for these stolen
works and their share of royalties.
Industry people know ‘the game’ and they know how to manipulate
situations so that when you refuse to dehumanize yourself, drop to your
knees and allow them to take everything… they label you as trouble. As with
any business, there is competition and the struggle for power and money.
This book describes how those with money, power, and position use mass
manipulation to discredit, its use of technology to spy, use of threats and
intimidation to isolate.  
 
This is about the struggle of one writer who was blessed with the
opportunity to survive and the will to refuse to settle for less. Realizing what
would be the point of a temporary relief from injustice and unwarranted
cruelty only to ultimately be subjected to the same inhumanity within a few
years. 
Like animals circling its prey, victims are surrounded, stalked, studied and
set-up. Like lambs led to slaughter, you won’t realize the severity of your
situation until you are knee deep in what I commonly refer to as a ‘shit-
storm’ of backstabbing friends, oppressing family members, snaking
strangers and money grubbing manipulators intent on keeping you
subjected and suppressed if they are unable to make a profit.

NOT INVISIBLE

NOT INVISIBLE  
EVEN A CHILD CAN SEE THIS INJUSTICE! 
 
I had filed the copyrights listed
below and they were processed just
months prior to illegally obtained
warrant was issued.
          1.      PAu001720136 / January 7, 1993     “Collection
I-Tiwanda.” Lovelace, Tiwanda, 1967-
 
   18 SONG LYRICS AND MELODIES, 1 RAP, AND 2 POEMS
 
2.      PAu001721382 / March 4, 1993       “Collection
II-Tiwanda.” Lovelace, NeNe
 
6 SONG LYRICS AND MELODIES, 
 
Although Lovelace was reporting to Michigan Probation AS DIRECTED by Courts, there were no efforts were made to contact
and/or provide Notice of Hearing.  

That small print says: 

“The undersigned officer hereby certifies that a thorough and diligent search for the probationer listed in this warrant and affidavit has been made at but not limited to places of abode, known places of frequencies, and others and that His/Her whereabouts are unknown an cannot be located…” 



And this warrant was signed May 19, 1993 expires July 31, 1997

Warrant Used to Take Public Housing in Nevada
Why did this
police agency state that the warrants were valid in 2005 but unable to execute
due to budgetary constraints but when I lived in Georgia 2003/2004 there were
no efforts to arrest? I believe the warrant was serving its purpose, to inflict
damage, hinder and harm.
 
Michigan Inter-State Case Report
dated 08-2-1993
Although Lovelace was reporting to
Michigan Probation,
no efforts were made to contact and/or
provide notice. I was still reporting
(3) three months, unaware that the warrant
was issued on May 19, 1993. I was
just told that I no longer was to report to
Michigan Probation office. I
obtained this letter well after.
Michigan Inter-State Case Report
 
 
In all that

time, I never mention the fact that my
father was convicted of murdering a
police officer. I did not want to think
that people would hold that against
me or be this sinister. I did not want
to even go there besides I still had
faith in the legal system.
I filed the lawsuit in Forma Pauperis
After many years of attempting to resolve
this issue by submitting written request for correction, I filed a lawsuit in
Dekalb County Georgia against the Dekalb County Police and Dekalb County
Probation Office due to an illegally obtained warrant for my arrest, modification
of my record; which led to revocation of my First Offenders Act…without notice of hearing or opportunity
for rebuttal since record shows that I was reporting as directed by courts.
 
I filed my Complaint against both Defendants, Dekalb County Police and Dekalb County Probation Office
 
This is only the first few pages and a copy of the initial
attachments.
 

The Judge had determined that under


Federal Law that there were stipulations with

regards to being able to file suit against the police

departments and ruled that I could proceed


with lawsuit.
 

Below is the Judges a partial
summary of the
case, frivolity determination, Order
for Clerk’s Office to Include Dekalb
County Police Dept. as Defendants

In addition to these
documents proving service,
Pacer Court records system also confirms processed…See Below:
Pacer Court records No.
7 – Order instructs Clerk’s Office to list Dekalb county Police
to complaint and to forward Plaintiff USM285 forms for completion.
Pacer Court records No.
8 – Plaintiff’s  USM285 forms and Summons
were completed and returned.
Pacer Court records No. 9 – Summons was issued for Defendants dekalb County
Police.
Yet, Defendants denied
being served.  
Pacer Court records No.
10 – Request for Waiver of Summons.

The dates and Court time-stamps confirm that Defendants were served properly but this was ignored. 

The Defendants denied receiving Summons 
The summons that they say that they never received!
 
Can you explain why does this form below
have her signature?
Yet, it is not included in their exhibits that
claim that they received.
Justice was not

served…but the Defendants were!
 
If I had missed a court deadline for
my response, the courts would have made
ruling against me. Instead, the courts
ignored Pacer court records and my Request
for Entry of Default; allowing the
injustice to continue. The Judges did not
address that problem with multiple
request for Correction regarding the Clerk’s
Office interfering with filings
due to:
1.    Clerk EXCLUDING A DEFENDANT clearly
     listed on Complaint.
2.    Clerk not providing Judge with
     correct/updated filings.
3.    Clerk not mailing copies to Defendants,
     although extra copies were

provided for service. While certain filings
     were mailed, others were neglected at
     their discretion.
4.    Clerks deliberately delayed forwarding
     motions to the Judges.
EVERYTHING  was processed and Defendants – Dekalb County
Police did not respond in the time allotted by procedure as directed by courts.
Suddenly and without

cause the case was reassigned to a
different Judge after Plaintiff (Lovelace)
filed for Motion to Request Entry of
Default…
Months later…
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
There is no excuse for blatantly circumventing justice.
 
The initial Judge ruled that the police
could be an entity that could be sued… 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

















Every filing was submitted in
triplicate and I maintained certified
mailer receipts for the ones that I
mailed. Courts records prove that
they were served.

SOMEONE HAS GOT TO EXPLAIN WHY I HAVE TO

SOMEONE HAS GOT TO EXPLAIN 
WHY I DON’T HAVE RIGHTS 
AND MOST IMPORTANTLY – 
AFTER SUBMITTING OVER 40+ SONGS THAT WERE 
ON THE TOP OF THE CHARTS –
WHY IS THIS OKAY !


In three days,

 

I will be visiting Zomba Enterprises Inc 

 

at 137 W 25th St # 139 

 

New York, NY, 10001 

 

AND

 
Grubman, Indursky, 
 
Schindler & Goldstein 
 
at 152 W 57TH ST,
NEW YORK, NY, 100193386
 
According to contractual obligations, it is
necessary for me to submit notices of my
grievances with Zomba to both them and
Grubman, Indursky, Schindler &
Goldstein, P.C.; I notified them…
 


Online News article describes major conflict and sheds light on why Zomba reps. assisted in copyright infringement and 

provides additional reasons as to why my copyright 

 infringements were not pursued:



“In certain cases, even when a lawyer obtains the client’s 

 
consent, the ethical dilemma is not resolved, according to 
 
Deborah Schenk, chair of the committee on professional 
 
ethics for the New York State Bar Assn., of which Grubman 
 
is a member.”
“Representing opposing parties during the negotiation of a 
contract is clearly an example where consent will not cure 
the problem,” Schenk said. “It’s impossible for an attorney 
to provide undivided loyalty to one client if at the same 
time he or she is representing an opposing interest.”

Grubman maintains that his firm never worked for CBS 
during the period when he negotiated Joel’s contract with 
the company, although he acknowledges representing CBS 
and several of its chief executives at different times over the 
past decade. – news article

 

“The concern is that the lawyer–consciously or 

unconsciously–would most likely be less than 

zealous to slug it out on behalf of the
artist in order to ingratiate himself
with the record company and assure
that he does not chill the potential for
future business.”   – news article
 
I NEVER HEARD BACK FROM 
 
GRUBMAN INDURSKY & SCHINDLER PC 
 
 
BUT SINCE MY CIVIL RIGHTS HAS BEEN VIOLATED 
 
AND THERE ARE NO STATUES OF LIMITATIONS,
 
 
 
I WILL BE GOING TO NEW YORK, NY IN THREE DAYS 
 
TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS MESS AND 
 
 
GETTING MY MONEY BECAUSE: 
 
 
I AM NOT SLAVE, 
 
 
I DO NOT WORK FOR FREE,
 
I HAVE BEEN TORTURED FOR DECADES IN RELATION  
TO THIS MUSIC MESS, 
 
I HAVE NOT BEEN ALLOWED TO MAINTAIN 
 
EMPLOYMENT OR MAINTAIN RESIDENCE  DUE TO 
 
HARASSMENT,
 
 
I CONSULTED ATTORNEY’S PRIOR TO SIGNING THAT 
 
PUBLISHING CONTRACT WITH ZOMBA.
 
 
COPYRIGHTED MY MATERIALS, 
 
 
I TRIED TO WORK WITH EVERYONE BUT THEY DID 
 
NOT HAVE GOOD INTENTIONS.
 
 
 
WOULDN’T YOU FIGHT FOR YOUR LIFE?
 
 
WHY HOLD ME DOWN? 
 
 
 
I COULD REALLY USE SOME SUPPORT, 
 
 
INSTEAD OF ALL THE ANGRY 
 
 
MESSAGES AND THREATS. 
 
 
 
HAVE TO FIGHT PEOPLES LIES,
DECEIT AND MISREPRESENTATIONS
BECAUSE THE REAL CULPRITS HIDE
WHILE BLAMING ME FOR THEIR
ACTIONS
 
 
 
WHY IGNORE DOCUMENTED PROOF?
 
THIS IS NOT OKAY!
 
 
 
It is not okay for people to exact
revenge on one person under the guise
of a game. 
 
You know when someone is trying to 
‘knock you off’ – secretly, pressuring you
and alienating you… this is not a game!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Not Everyone Goes Insane…

Not Everyone Buckles Under Pressure, Not Everyone Goes Insane…Some Just Write a Book About It!

This innovative product demonstrates the inner workings of the music industry and explores the depths that ruthless corrupted individuals will sink for revenge!

Even if you think you know of her story, I promise you that you don’t know half of it. There has been great effort put into hiding the truth. As long as a person can remain isolated, this can continue on as it has for decades. This is not just one person’s word against another. This book is not about any one man’s actions and definitely not about a lover’s quarrel. Love had nothing to do with it. This was definitely a combined effort by many to secretly, deliberately abuse, exploit and violate the rights of a few (myself included).
