Originally from Colorado and now residing in Austin, Artist B2D credits the success of his music to the demons of society that haunt him. Fans tune in to this exclusive interview and get up and close with B2D.13323570_1736973966519650_9134101709733457182_o

MJ: Thank you for taking time away from the mic for this interview, your time is appreciated.  For those who aren’t familiar with you as an artist, tell us who you are.

B2D:   My Name is B2D which stands for Born 2 Die, and I’m an artist & CEO of my record Label Bellavino Billionaires Music Group, which I just established a little over a Year Ago.  I’m very versatile as an artist and feel like I shine most in my music when I share my pain. I love art in all forms, but I never been to good with a paint brush, so what I can paint with words is way above standard.

MJ:  When did music become a major part of your life? Was it teenage years or even younger?  Also tell us when you realized music was no longer a hobby or a passion.

B2D:  I was a fan of music and it played a major role in my life before I could even talk. As a I use to bob my head or dance to music all the time, the vibe was just there. I was always passionate about music and I would release music for free all the time.  I never took a look at it like a business.  But once I started to take my music seriously and wanted to make a living from it, best believe I made a lot of mistakes.  I work very closely with a childhood friend that’s very successful in the music industry who is guiding and managing my career.  A year from now life for me and my team will be very different on the positive end! Blood, sweat, and tears, we know we have to put everything we have into our dream or we won’t get anything out of it, or see any results.

MJ: You take pride in steering away from “fake rappers who rap about situations they never been through”.  Why do you think that has become so trendy lately? What specifically about your music separates you from those rappers?

B2D:  Music is music.  I really dislike rappers who talk like their Tony Montana flipping kilos and killing whoever they have beef with or make it big from false stories in their raps. The twist to all of this nonsense is real street cats, the young ones more so feel like they really have to prove that they are real to the world and they will go rob somebody or lay somebody down then get on a track and brag about! It’s not smart and doesn’t make any sense business or music wise.  The trend right now is a catchy hook and an auto tune verse.  People use to steal the Migos delivery but now rappers will go with whatever single is hot at the moment and steal that delivery whether it’s Drake or 69 Kat, or whoever.  What separates me or my music from other artists is simply me!  I’m not trying to be anybody else. When it’s time to record music I put all of me on the records and I give fans the real me and my real life.  I don’t front or lie on my tracks to look cook or gain fans.

MJ: It takes a real emcee to share their personal life, mistakes, encounters with the law, running the streets, etc. with the world and fans!  In the world we live in today the media and press tend to shy away from artists who speak upon “their past of hard knocks”.   How do you feel about that?

B2D:  I don’t agree with that I feel like they always bring up the past and they never talk about the positive changes they have made in their life.

MJ: Besides being an Artist you are also in the process of building your own Record Label. Gives us some insight on the label, and the new compilation out now under that label.

 

B2D:  Building a label is a lot of hard work.  I’m constantly grinding and making sure that both myself and artists are getting the most effective exposure. The hardest part is dealing with some artists. Some artists think they deserve a lot of money once their album or single drops.  Or they think they know everything when they haven’t been signed in the past. A lot of artists lack the knowledge of the business side of music and that is one my goals with the label. I work diligently to educate artists… I will say this though, the new compilation has me and a few of my artists on going hard from beginning to end. Since the release we have been receiving a tremendous amount of positive feedback.  We are polishing up on another compilation that will be released in a couple of months.

MJ: You have collaborated with some major artists. Do you have a top 3 of other artists you would like to share the stage or studio with?

B2D:  The top three artists I would like to collaborate with in the studio is NbA Young Boy, Icewear Vezzo, and Moneybagg Yo.

MJ: B2D wears many hats! Tell us about the clothing line and the winery.

B2D:  I started making wine nine years ago.  I was taught by a retired cook on a cruise ship. I titled the wine Bellavino and I distribute it through events, fashion shows, and online at www.BellavinoBillionaires.com.  Bellavino Billionaire Apparel is also available at shows and events. Right now no other hats are getting put on until the Label Bellavino Billionaires Music Group has a level of skyrocket success!

MJ: With so much on your plate as a true entrepreneur has, what is your secret to balance, especially with family?

B2D:  Balance comes from making a schedule and making sure you make time for what’s important every week.

MJ: Who are some people who have an influence on your life and career?

B2D: 2pac inspired me to rap and Adrain Swish inspired me to turn my passion of music into a business. Seeing someone else come up doing what I love to do inspires me, haters and non-believers inspire me, and most importantly my daughter inspires me!

MJ:  What’s up next for B2D?

B2D:  More music and acting.

MJ: As we wrap up is there anything else you want the world to know about yourself and your label?

B2D:  Roll up some weed or whatever it is you might do and prepare yourself for the show Bellavino Billionaires Music Group is about to give you!

Fresh off the release of his most recent album #AyeDoe Pt. 2, 4toda5to is back with another impressive project. He just dropped off the visual for “Air McNair,” which is a standout single from the album. The visual is undoubtedly creative and unique, and puts 4toda5to’s talents on full display.

The independent artist is from Central Richmond, California, and wants his audience to take away an important message from his music.

“Stay motivated, get some money and mind your business,” 4toda5to said in a recent interview.

In the video for “Air McNair,” he spreads exactly that message. The visual, which can also be described as a “mini movie” and follows 4toda5to as he rides through the city with a homeboy discussing his plans for a come up. 4toda5to has a unique gift for creating a narrative that fits perfectly with the lyrics of the song. Combined with his impressive delivery and skilled rhymes, the emerging talent is someone you can definitely keep in your rotation.

We had the chance to interview the artist and ask him about his music journey so far.

Keep reading to learn more about 4toda5to and watch the video for “Air McNair” below.

Tell us about the project your most recent project, “Air McNair.”

I just dropped a visual for “Air McNair,” a track off my most recent project called #AyeDoe Pt. 2. Air McNair is a mini movie. It’s “get up off yo a–” music. The song, the video, the vibe all yell “go get it.” I’m learning that you have to fall in love with the process. Focus and discipline are what gets you what you want and puts you where you want to be. “Air McNair” is on repeat during that process.

What has the response been like to that project?
Crazy! The people have really been engaged with this video. It has a storyline that goes with the lyrics and this gives the viewer a reason to lock in. It’s one of those videos that makes you ask a friend if they’ve seen it.

What are some projects you’ve done in the past that you are most proud of and why?
The first #AyeDoe! I’m extremely proud of myself for putting in the work and dropping my first project. I learned a lot and it shows on this most recent project. Also, I dropped a mixtape called Might Not Be 4 U. I feel like I tapped into a completely different world. I opened up and let the pen bleed. I just let my emotions go and put them on the page. Man…that was some good sh-t on that project.

What’s next for you? Are you working on any upcoming projects we should be on the lookout for?
I’m grindin’ as we speak. Of course I have to deliver the final installment of the #AyeDoe series. I’m working on STILL Might Not Be 4 U. I’m gaining a little traction so I’m doing a bunch of features and to be honest I’m trying to drop as many videos as I can for the rest of the year. Just working on perfecting my craft.

What message do you hope fans take away from your music?
Stay motivated, get some money and mind your business. #ExtremelyDedicated.

Where can we follow you on social media?
You can find me on everything from IG to Youtube under 4toda5to. EVERYTHANG!
