“I saw a lot of artists get caught up because they were not prepared, which alerted me to the need for a professional course,” Watkins added. “My peers in the business were more than happy to share their insights and advice. As Ice Cube says on the DVD, ‘the worse thing in the world is to be large and everybody’s getting paid on you, but you.'”
