Featured artist: ceodolla - Ceodolla needs no introduction and #NoCosign
Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist ceodolla.
How did you decide to become an artist?
ceodolla: i started in the church playing the drums and singing in the choir , i couldnt sing really but i always wanted a solo and couldnt get it . This is probley was started my music inclination.
The best advice giving to me as an artist is " stop making money off other people, and make money off yourself" Previously to signing with CDM I would work with artist and put there project before my career I saw it as a way to make money and eventually present a deal for myself through the success of artist i work with. While this can be a noble act or good business move , i would rather follow this advice . As a result CDM has released my debut indie hip-hop album in early jJanuary 2016 , with a recent follow up now streaming on TIDAL, and wherever music is sold online .
What about concerts? Do you play live?
Yes i plai live ! This year ive appeared frequently at "THE WEST END" on they upper east side of manhattan, most recently i performed for a packed crowd at BUSHWICK PUBLIC HOUSE in brooklyn NY on the Freedom Tour with Soop Nation , other performances include Mexi Cali Live (nj) Nuyorican Cafe (downtoan manhattan) Bar 13 (union sq. manhattan Hard Rock Cafe (boston) BlackThorn 51(queens NY)
Best punchline you ever wrote?
yeah i know i been blackin more, all up on dey streets like a blackamoor while yall whiticious i get blacker more.
What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?
Currently im working on my 2nd album, or maybe it will be an EP. In the past, in the recent past i dropped my 1st album ever, entitled #IMHOTT now streaming on Tidal Spotify Googleplay AppleMusic and wherever music is sold online . including Youtube.
Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Yes , I would sign with a larger company or record label. The pros's and con's are based on the deal being offered. Ideally monetary consideration is needed currently mainly due to adverse living conditons in which im living under while residing in the ghetto lol. I need an office to create freely, in order to record an album i need to play ping pong , smoke good weed with fanto, Gourmet food and munchies, i need peanuts in the shell salted, i need space, i need to record , i need fresh fruits organic if possible hopefully its possible, i need gadgets, i need a mac and a pc , i need a n apt to write music in as well. and to sleep sometimes and think about where i wanna go with the project artistically , and these are just a few things that would help define pro's and cons'. if i could get these things plus some cash , id appreciate that deal . theres so many options , Im listening .
Any last words?
shoutout to my entire city, I love my city I love NEW YORK. Big shoutout to my sponsors including Old Spice, Trendsettah Inc (splitarillos), and San Disk.
