so inaccurate about the hip hop scene sure dirty does his thing but I'm not gonna go into the semantics and smear a reputation but there are SO many more groups and collectives in this city working so hard . This was a case of you knowing him vs doing research based on the hip hop scenes opinion. Case Barge is managed by a different person too that is inaccurate. Nice read but this is an example of how "politics" work in our city with music.
Look in The Fader, look in Complex, look in Noisey look to major publications and you can see lots of others working just as hard.
I want to shout out LIFE MGMT specifically they have talent and people making real moves. DK KY is helping boom Lil Crays career and ALL the dope studios in the city that put out quality. I can go on forever.
Seems kind of insane not to have Mark Soberay's name on that list! For 21 years Mark has run Rock and Roll City Studios, on Cleveland's near west side, devoting his life to providing a safe, affordable and reliable space for area bands to practice, grow, network, learn and thrive!
Wonderful family! A west side treasure!!
Let me speak the truth and facts real quick. When I worked at Karamu they robbed Peter to pay Paul. The support from funders was more than enough to run the place and cover the theater season. Karamu had funds for marketing, but would misuse the grants to cover other expenses. The Accountant was always changing reports, but would type the changes on the documents instead of using the computer.
The theater was never 100% supported because the funds that were allocated for the theater was strict, but Vivian Wilson would adjust number to make Terrance Terrence Spivey look bad when it came to reflecting on theater attendance, For funders she would adjust the numbers to get the grant support.
At the time I was present PNC Bank gave $12,500 for new computers for the Daycare. The staff made a decision to only use $500 of that and purchase old refurbished computers. The remaining $12,000 was miss sourced and the Executive Greg Ashe at the time received the funds as a bonus.
It is sad that 13 people were let go and the daycare parents were informed last minute about the changes.
Karamu is supported by The Cleveland Foundation, AT&T, Chase Bank, The City of Cleveland and various other funding source.
The situation that occured it deeper than the surface do not believe everything you read! I believe Tony Sias let Terrance Spivey go for far more personal reasons.
It will not be another 15 years for Karamu until they can get the right people onboard that has a vision and can truly manage funding.
Play sand volleyball at Wendy Park along the lake.
His daughter mentioned in the article is now attending medical school :)
Door George was our comfort and safe haven for many years. He would always listen to our problems and wipe our tears. I love and miss you my friend. The one and only Raven.

I totally agree with most police but who the hell thinks theres anything right about a so called cop handeling this situation hes involved in himself! Shame on this pd!!!!
Investigating the island further. This isn't the end. We'll be getting private eyes there soon.
Interesting discussion , Apropos , if people has been needing to merge PDF files , my husband discovered a tool here http://goo.gl/yjOXb6
Still remember when I used to set pins at old 5 STAR LANES on Superior for a dime a game !!
Also how in awe I was of Tim and Tom the way they could bowl !!
My fondest memory was Frank asking me to set pins for a league, having to jump 2 lanes.
I guess I did OK as when I was done, they sent a ball down the gutter with a $10 bill stuck in the thumb hole !! Man that was like a Thousand dollars in those days !!!
Spent many great years enjoying this place and these guys. Actually where I had y first beer. Maybe that's why I fell in love with bowling.
I'd like to thank them both for their contributions to cleveland!
Great guys known them for years in the old neighborhood.
Who made this list??? Not one World Series Of Rock show !!! How about the All The World A Stage tour from Rush, Pink Floyd Animals, any Led Zeppelin show?? Morons !!!
He's a crook! If he wasn't a billionaire with people in his pockets, he would be serving time as a convicted felon!
I left for California 20 years ago and wanted to move back instantly. Well, a wife and two kids later,I am back with the family in tow. My heart literally feels lighter. Will never leave again!
I'll tell you why, in comparison, Cleveland is better than Naples. I may be able to get to the gulf in 10 minutes, to see dolphins and clear blue waters, but no where here can I take a bike ride through hills beside a running creek in the woods. No where in Naples can you go into the basement of a 100 year old building full of exposed bring and narrow halls just to get to a fireplace and hang with friends and have a beer. No doors squeak, no strairs creak, rarely is someone from here, anything of any value to people historically, gets torn down for another hotel, restaurant or strip mall, just to make more money from tourists in winter. And if they say its historical, and keep it, they charge you to come take a peek. So, while its beautiful, and the weather is amazing, sun shines most of the year, my heart truly loves Cleveland. I'll be back again soon!
Moved from my hometown of LA 22 years ago and I still get that "Why'd you move here?" Every time I go back to LA I'm reminded of why I could never live in LA again.
Stop knocking your city, native Clevelanders!
Crappy writing, by a crappy publication, about a crappy city.
Gary Norton is a thief just like the Nigerian bastard that went to jail. Bring back Eric Brewer. I bet Norton leaked the photos.
