The best kept secret in music

Exclusive Interview:

Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today.

I was born and raised in Augusta, Georgia (home of the legendary Godfather of Soul, James Brown) and currently residing. This point in my life came from having a passion and love for music. From being in two rap groups, starting in high school then through college, to now being a solo artist it shows that anyone can do music, but only the few best are destined to be great at it. The position I’m at now came from three albums/mixtapes, being an intriguing hype man in several dj tandems, a club/event promoter, and a true MC.

Tell us more about the current song you are promoting to everyone.

The song “Cry Me A River,” gives the point of view from an artists’ standpoint that even though you can love the game (hip-hop and the entertainment industry) with every emotion inside you, it still may not love you back or treat you the way you think it would. Therefore, you might not need to love it the way you think you should. Go hard and let the game cry for your presence!

Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in the industry?

The hardest challenge I’ve had to face and still facing in this industry today is getting my hometown to support its own artists. But in the end, it just means less money to divide up amongst others and I’m cool with that.

What was one of the biggest set backs in your career and how did you bounce back?

The biggest set back in my career was when I had temporarily given up on music in 2007 and moved out to Las Vegas for a short period of time thinking that jumping out on unstable faith would miraculously land me into doing some big things in life. I didn’t know what the hell I was thinking. You live and learn I guess.

What are some things artists need to be careful of?

Artists need to be careful and not follow trends. You think it might help you get exposure if you do what is buzzing at the moment, but the game is constantly changing and new, innovative styles are the key to success. So stop doing the same old thing and talking about the same old sh*t!

What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?

If you believe, keep doing it. The only way you won’t make it is if you stop trying.

What is one of your favorite ways to promote yourself and your music?

My favorite and best way for me (may not necessarily work for others) to promote myself and music is when I host/MC a club/party and I got the crowd stupid crunk and having a good time, to just slide in my music with the dj’s normal rotation of other hits and watch them go with the flow as if it is a song already blown up! Then at the end of the night several people ask me what that unfamiliar song(s) were and that they like it, then “bam” I slap a CD in their hands and they walk off ready to pop it in the whip! Works every time.

Where can people visit you?

You can visit me in Augusta or I can come visit you, real talk. If you like my music, I would love to come perform wherever you want me to. Holla at me to come rock your club on the mic with the dj and I’ll show you an artist. Or you can check me out on www.reverbnation.com/mccce I always appreciate the love and show it right back!
