Al's brainchild, ABS Entertainment.net, Inc., is comprised of an independent record label, publishing arm, and a television development division. As CEO, Al's goal is to focus his experience and energies to seek out, discover, and launch tomorrow's superstar artists, producers, and songwriters and develop innovative ideas that would be interesting to today's fickle audiences in music & television. My greatest desire is to afford hungry, undiscovered, talented individuals, the same opportunities as I had in the music industry, states Al.
Though it would be hard to imagine that this kind of meteoric success could leave anyone unaffected, Al concedes one significant change a change for the better. My experience as an artist, producer, songwriter, and record executive has given me an intangible sensitivity to the needs of a budding, future superstar in every capacity of the industry, reflects Al. I recognize the blessing of expressing my life through the vehicle of song, the dependency of human emotion on every note, and my responsibility to provide the light at the end of the tunnel. I aim to create a desire to reach for the light by respecting the journey with constructive honesty, maintaining positivity, remaining innovative creatively & musically, and never leaving the studio until the job is done!
Part II (The Real Inf.)
...The NEW CD will be produced by...
AlBSure.com (New Name) & Genius Kyle West (Break it Down)!
Also assisting in the new event are producers:
Ike Lee & Andre' Kyles, Maurice (Moe Pee) Pearle & Kevin (DeanStreet) Dean.
His Fam & Crew.
Kyle & Al B produced most of the new CD and they have created a new sound called:
"Black -MiddleEast" leaving a very melodic Marvin Gaye taste in your mouth, fantasizing about sexy belly dancers with chocolate versions of Jennifer Lopez, rugged beats, even on the Smoothed-Out Ballads, introducing a badly needed, new sound for the radio listeners. Aren't you tired of the same OLE, tired samples or stolen, played out music? This will be a relief & a treat. The new CD feels like he's The Black STING(Al B's favorite current artist).
He's in great shape and I even hear he will be sporting a six pack. He misses yall and can't wait to see yall at the next concert. Thank you for showing love. The original is back All Up In Here
