In other news the S&S of Hit-A-Lik Entertainment released their latest mixtape effort "Top Of The Map" to great acclaim. Some of the favored tracks include "1800" as well as "El Camino T-Top" (AKA) "Blow You Away."
M Dot / AKA Dotoz (The General of The S&S Click pictured above) was not available for comment but released this statement:
"Oh my God Obama, Top Of The Map is a classic tape, perhaps; even more like the foundation for a new beginning . . . it's The 'Lik . . ."
Dotoz also has a solo effort on the way soon. "The Gans 1.0/2.0" is reportedly a 34 track double-disc effort which may or may not include some poignant words for local MC's.

Hit-A-Lik affiliate and in-house production guru Drew Money appears in Rolling Stone. Hit-A-Lik Entertainment C.E.O. Charles Buko quoted as saying "Congratulations to him, it's such excellent news that he's getting recognition like that, my music would be nowhere without him."
The following is a link to the article:

Hit-A-Lik affiliate (and in-house production contributor) Mikey Millions (pictured above).
As Hit-A-Lik Entertainment Chief Execuitve Officer Charles "Charlie" Buko prepares for his meeting at Universal Music Group it has become clear Millions will no longer be able to conceal his affiliation with "The 'Lik."
Reason being; Buko is rumored to be closing the same "Spring Fling" music festival (Hartford University April 25th 2009) Pharrell Williams and NERD (Millions' current employers) are Headlining.
"We're not going out of our way to do anything crazy..." said Buko.
"I'm just looking forward to hearing some songs off that new NERD album."
Sunday, March 29, 2009
Buko evaded revealing the title.
"People will just have to go and see, also; I'd request that all listeners rate the song 5 out of 5...Drew Money really did a number on this one."

Amidst speculation Buko has the proverbial "juice" as Hit-A-Lik Chief Financial Officer Johnny "Paper Chase" O'Brien has re-located from South Beach to Detroit.
Buko seemed non-chalant:
"Hit-A-Lik headquarters is now back in Detroit where it belongs" said Buko. "John is setting things up so we will be able to recieve Frizz appropriately upon his release in April...Lord willing."
Monday, January 5, 2009
Hit-A-Lik Chief Financial Officer Johnny "Paper Chase" O'Brien refused to comment on the video of Hit-A-Lik Chief Executive Officer Charles Buko (AKA "C-Hust") which has reportedly surfaced.
Sources tell hitalik.blogspot after being told to kill the "Trap Like Me" project a video surfaced showing Buko doing quite the opposite.
Rumor has John O'Brien (at one point may have) told Buko he'd "step down" from The 'Lik entirely. Sources revealed Buko (who has been a "positive thinking kick lately") was understandably shaken up by O'Brien's admission.
Buko remained cautiously optimistic...
"My confidence in the Trap Like Me project has never waivered. Sometimes you have to push things to the brink of extinction before than can be cultivated...Free Frizz."
Sunday, December 14, 2008
Hit-A-Lik Chief Financial Officer Johnny "Paper Chase" O'Brien confirmed reports that Hit-A-Lik "temporarily" rented "commercial space" at Näckströmsgatan (Berzelii Park) Stockholm, Sweden.
Hit-A-Lik Chief Executive Officer Charles "Charlie" Buko responded optimistically when asked if Hit-A-Lik will open a permanent office overseas.
"Certainly by the second quarter of 2009" said the young executive. "Hit-A-Lik Europe...No homo."

How Long Will They Mourn Me?
Flint Rap Legend MC Breed (pictured right with Tupac Shakur) found at a friends home in Ypsilanti this weekend; dead at 36.
"Breed was a HUGE influence" said Buko. "I can remember lip-synching to Ain't No Future In Your Frontin' in the mirror, when I was like 14. He was a HERO. I was a fan of Tupac, so for Breed to have songs with Pac? That was crazy! NOBODY from Michigan had songs with Pac. Later on when we came up I knew people who knew him and chilled with him. I'd always hear he was around Ann Arbor, The D, The Y. Even though I never met him personally Hit-A-Lik is forever in debt to Breed. Pour out a little liquor."

Hit-A-Lik Chief Security Engineer (name withheld for reasons sensitive to National Security) pictured far right with Barack Obama.
"Safety first" said Hit-A-Lik Chief Executive Officer Charles "Charlie" Buko.
Regarding the anonymous security engineer: "Brilliant is an understatement, we're very fortunate to have him on the team."
With Respect to Obama's "endorsement" Buko was sketchy at best. "No comment" he said "stop trying to get me in trouble."
Hardly astonishing Mr. Buko fancies himself avoiding "trouble." He nearly got arrested on his way home from Manhattan. Rumor has it police forced him off a Long Island Rail Road train (in Valley Stream) around 5:00am last Sunday Morning.
After (allegedly) kissing an unnamed female "friend" on the lips, the young Executive fled a Soho club for Garden City only to fall asleep on the train and wake up in Long Beach.

As www.youtube.com/hitalikentertainment closes in on 17,000 total views Hit-A-Lik Chief Executive Officer Charles "Charlie" Buko (pictured above on MTV with Cipha Soundz of Hot97) finds himself in hot water again this week.
It appears Buko recorded on a Drew Money beat that had not been authorized for use. Sources told hitalik.blogspot "Andy was very upset, he said John was wilding."
Drew Money's short temper isn't surprising. After the "Killa-Gate" scandal (for explanation of "Killa-Gate" e-mail email@example.com) it's completely understandable that the young producer would have a zero tolerance policy for this sort of behavior.
"I can niether confirm or deny the reports about the beat story, if anything did happen It was a very simple mis-understanding" said Buko.
"Even in a hypothetical scenario in which a beat was stolen I'm sure John made an honest mistake and it will not happen again...everything is under control, Andy is well compensated for all his work, his wrist is flooded with diamonds this is a bunch of gossip."
Buko seemed calm considering he was hit by a car in Long Island Tuesday morning. "My injuries appear to be minor, thank god, I think I'm just a little bruised."

Hit-A-Lik Chief Financial Officer Johnny "Paper Chase" O'Brien refused to comment on Hit-A-Lik Chief Executive Officer Charles "Charlie" Buko's trip to Miami last weekend.
Multi-Platinum producer (and Hit-A-Lik in-house production contributor) Drew Money was quoted off the record saying Buko recorded his "catchiest hook."
Details of the session (and/or sessions) are being kept under tight wraps. South Beach Studios verified Buko booked (and utilized) time on Saturday October 4. Otherwise; little is known.
Hit-A-Lik Fun Fact:
South Beach Studios is located inside Miami's Hotel Marlin. Famous songs recorded there include Jay-Z's "Blue Magic" and C-Hust's "Diamonds In My Watch Face."

Hit-A-Lik affiliate T. Buhr (A.K.A. "the head turner like Ted Turner") refused to comment on what he was doing with Jessica Simpson. Some reports have Buhr and Simpson on a date. Others have Buhr negotiating a collaboration between Simpson and Hit-A-Lik Entertainment.
Buhr's role in "the 'Lik" has always been a source of curiosity. While he has never held an official title within the organization, (there is a perspective that Buhr would be "above" such a thing) his face has appeared on multiple Hit-A-Lik event flyers.
Since Buhr refused comment, hitalik.blogspot.com sought out Hit-A-Lik C.E.O. Charles Buko to see if he couldn't shed some light on the situation. "I think Jessica's just a little jealous, you need to go ask Ryan Mallet."

Buko's acting agent Peter Cratz (pictured left) met with Wilson Sunday in the Hamptons. "Real ballers always end up working on Labor Day" said Cratz as he waited for his 2008 Audi S4 at the Valet station.

When Hit-A-Lik Chief Financial Officer (and Senior Vice President) John O'Brien (pictured far left) said he "bumped into" Floyd Mayweather this weekend in Las Vegas...he meant it.
"Money May" brushed shoulders with the young executive on his way out of the Palazzo, O'Brien recognized the champ and they began conversing.
Once Pretty Boy Floyd became privy to multi-platinum producer (and Hit-A-Lik in house production contributor) Drew Money's affiliation with "The 'Lik" he told O'Brien "wait here one second, I want to talk business with you."
Apparently by "talk business" Mayweather meant "come back with two white Caddillac Escalades and a yellow Lamborghini Murcielago" because Pretty Boy Floyd returned with full crew, two white Cadillac Escalades and a yellow Lamborghini Murcielago.
A possible collaboration may be in the works.
Asked "Was it really Floyd Mayweather?" O'Brien responded:
"Look at his watch it's huge, it's the size of his head...I mean really zoom in on it there are blue diamonds and canary diamonds and all kinds of crazy shit."

Hit-A-Lik Entertainment affiliate (and in-house engineering/production contributor) Mikey "Millions" Larson continued his globe trotting this week. Larson, Pharrell Williams (pictured left), Chad Hugo and the rest of the N.E.R.D. team arrived at Old Trafford football stadium in Greater Manchester (UK). Also known as the "Theatre Of Dreams" Old Trafford football stadium is home to the famous Manchester United football franchise.
Hit-A-Lik Entertainment Chief Execuive Officer Charles "Charlie" Buko playfully evaded speculation that hitalik.blogspot.com (at least of late) has been a lot about N.E.R.D. and not so much about Hit-A-Lik . "I'm not concerned with the haters" said Buko "I do not authorize that...nor do I condone diffusion of responsibility within proprietors of that sort."
Wednesday, August 13, 2008
Hit-A-Lik Entertainment Chief Executive Officer Charles "Charlie" Buko confirmed reports Wednesday that Miss Teen Canada has signed to Hit-A-Lik. "Mikey Millions met her in Montreal" Buko said "I guess they were getting along (because) he threw the idea out and she went for it."
Many have been shocked and confused by this revalation. Mikey Millions was not available for comment but released this statement: "It's not about Treetown, it's about Miss Teen Canada, Hit-A-Lik, and the future of rap music."
Rumors are Miss Teen Canada will lend vocals to tracks, or function as spokesperson. Either way Hit-A-Lik Chief Financial Officer (and Senior Vice President) John O'Brien was not aware of his labels newest "signing" when we notified him. "What?" said O'Brien.
O'Brien made no further comment. He was too busy dialing Buko on his Blackberry and I Phone simultaneously as he exited Hit-A-Lik's South Beach Offices.

Hit-A-Lik Entertainment Chief Executive Officer Charles "Charlie" Buko dodged the chance to confirm rumors his next solo album will be produced exclusively by Drew Money (and recorded on South Beach). "Hit-A-Lik has recently presented me with some new contractual options" said Buko "our label is multi-talented and we have a great deal of depth."
Amidst speculation Buko (seen above in one of an apparently limitless number of photographs with Dana Harris) is washed up and done for, a great deal of anticipation surrounds his upcoming solo effort. Specifically regarding reports the album will be produced exclusively by Drew Money. C-Hust's most recent release "Michigania Stunt Or Die" (The Mixtape) was well recieved but according to many under-promoted.

Hit-A-Lik Entertainment Chief Executive Officer Charles "Charlie" Buko was a guest of honor at the N.E.R.D. performance this past Tuesday (at Santos Party House) in Manhattan. The young executive was joined on stage by Swizz Beatz, Jermaine Dupri, and Pusha T.
Questions surround the "Treetown" production/engineering team (composed of Larson and Drew Money) that was behind such a great number of Hit-A-Lik recordings. With Drew Money in Miami, Larson on world tour, the entire artist roster in Detroit and Buko doing god knows what comments on the "State of the Lik" have been few and far between.
"Everything is great, we are happy for Mike and Drew Money" said Buko.
Buko went on to comment further (as he appeared to be in very good spirits) "we anxiously await the return of all our affiliates when the time is right...the release of Young Frizz will be a landmark in our label history and we look forward to it."
Also of note was Buko's watch, the face of which was studded with a dozen diamonds.
