Industry insider Felisha Booker is offering that for Kanye West to stake his claim in fashion that he heads south and get one of them cotton fields. Hmmm, sounds like a master plan and what Spike Lee has been right about all along, “Give us our 40 acres and a mule!”
She may actually have a good point, and great idea. Someone needs to get Yeezy on the phone ASAP and make this connection. No more waiting on the fashion industry to take notice, here’s an opportunity to create his stake in the game, and build his own empire.

Felisha Booker is Founder and CEO of Dynamic Producer, an industry leader in regards to helping music producers to strive to make advancements in music, business, and branding. As the only personalized guidance program offered to counsel, advise, and mentor music producers, Dynamic Producer embodies a one-on-one approach without regard to the caliber of one’s knowledge in music and business. Dynamic Producer has expanded its goals from the important work of helping to educate and provide opportunities for up and coming producers to establishing itself as a catalyst to train music producers to effectively guide their careers.
Booker started in the industry as an A&R representative at UNEM Entertainment Group – an independent record label based in her native Cleveland, Ohio. Late nights in the studio working side-by-side semi-seasoned producers birthed a desire to create an outlet for aspiring producers with little or no chance of being discovered, which later became Dynamic Producer.
While networking at an industry event she landed a position at Elektra Entertainment Group in 2001. Booker became further intrigued with the influence that entrepreneurship would have on being able to conquer the business her way. She left her job and began frequenting empowerment meetings and industry seminars scoring the connections that would ultimately aid in her efforts in launching her brainchild, Dynamic Producer, followed by Dynamic Songwriter soon thereafter.
After over a decade of success, Booker launched her newest brainchild and vision, Dynamic Producer Professional & Dynamic Songwriter Professional. The organization offers music submission opportunities, online showcases and an annual conference which features known and established producers, songwriters and executives the opportunity to network, build, and share resources. Booker has led herself and the organization to receive recognition from both industry professionals and sponsors alike, including: SESAC, Peermusic and AllHipHop, just to name a few. Alumni from the organization have went on to place records with artists such as Mya, Chamillionaire, 50 Cent, Jay-Z, Beyonce and many more.
Dynamic Producer & Dynamic Songwriter is just one fraction of the Booker Empire. She also oversees a boutique music licensing division. Within the music licensing sector, Dynamic has deals and/or has worked with Viacom Networks including MTV and VH1, Fox Sports Network and Firstcom just to name a few. In November, Booker launched Channel Dynamic, a music industry network that features interviews with working and established musicians, music producers, songwriters, engineers, executives and artists, sharing candid stories of their journey from the bottom to the top. From tips on how to make better music to advice on how to grow one’s music career or business, Channel Dynamic is a one stop for those looking to advance to their next level by learning from those who have come before them.
