Ep 44: Making Money Why We're on Quarantine...How to be More Efficient and Productive during this Pandemic
A few days ago, super-mogul, Dame Dash, issued a "Get Money While You're at Home" challenge.  In response to Dame Dash, @NinosCorner discusses how NOW is the time to be more efficient and productive in our personal and entrepreneurial lives.  Multi-tasking has to be THE way of life now.  It's time to start those businesses you have always dreamed of starting.  It's time to develop a business plan, marketing scheme, etc.  It's time for us to become more self-sufficient.  How are you becoming more productive in this time of crisis?

Ep 40: Mannie Fresh vs Scott Storch on Instagram Live (Producer Battle)
Last night, two historic Hip-Hop producers had a "friendly" hit-for-hit DJ battle between each other.  Mannie Fresh battled Scott Storch, and although I do believe Storch won the battle, I am certain that Mannie left out some classic bangers that should have easily replaced some of the songs he allotted time for in this 20-song battle.  Let me know who you think won the battle.  For everything NinosCorner, visit: NinosCorner.com Instagram/Twitter/Facebook/TikTok:  @NinosCorner

Today, @NinosCorner does a book review of Rap-A-Lot Record's CEO, James Prince's latest book, "The Art & Science of Respect: A  Memoir."  James Prince is one of the great music CEOs this industry has ever seen.  His record label is responsible for the ascension of artists and groups such as Scarface, The Geto Boys, Do or Die, and Devin the Dude.  Prince also revealed many things unknown to most readers, as in the fact that he managed boxers, such as Floyd Mayweather and Andre Ward.  This is an outstanding book that I highly suggest you read.  For all things NinosCorner, visit: NinosCorner.com

Ep 38: Forget #QuarantineAndChill, it's Time to Invest in Yourself
With the Coronavirus pandemic in full force, claiming nearly 4,000 lives in America so far, the nation is on full lock-down.  Many states, such as New York, Maryland, and Virginia, have directed its residents to quarantine themselves within their homes and only leave for essential reasons.  This "quarantine" direction has sparked the #QuarantineAndChill social media movement; however, @NinosCorner suggest that we do not #QuarantineAndChill but rather invest in ourselves during this time.  Take a listen and let me know your thoughts.  For all things NinosCorner, visit: NinosCorner.com

With the LA Rams recently cutting Todd Gurley, fresh off of signing a 4 year, $60 million deal with $45 million guaranteed 2 years prior, @NinosCorner discusses whether or not the running back position is being devalued in the NFL.  For example, Tennessee Titan's running back, Derrick Henry, was just extended the Franchise Tag, while their quarterback, Ryan Tannehill was offered a 4 year extension for $118 million, with $62 million guaranteed.  Anybody with eyes could see that Derrick Henry was the Titan's MVP.  What are your thoughts?  For more information, visit: NinosCorner.com For more sports information, visit: NinosCornerSports.com

Ep 1: 2018 NFL Season Review & Player Analysis
In the initial episode of the BattleStat Podcast, I explain exactly what the BattleStat Number (BSN) is.  The BSN is my custom formula that is similar to a quarterback rating (QBR), measuring the efficiency and effectiveness for offensive skill positions (Wide Receiver, Tight End, and Running Back).  I use the BSN to analyze players of the 2018 NFL season and go over possible fantasy football picks using the BSN.  I then switch gears to calculate and analyze BSNs for a few key collegiate athletes (Adrian Hardy, La Tech; Marquez Stevenson, Univ of Houston; Chuba Hubbard, Okla St), and project their college BSNs to current NFL players.    For more information, visit:  www.BattleStatSports.com Email:  BattleStatSports@gmail.com Twitter/Facebook/Instagram:  @BstatSports
