Florida’s own Theolodge building a global movement!

 

In a era of cookie cutter rappers “Theolodge” had definitely created a lane of his own.

A dominant player in the Florida music scene “Theolodge” has been building his solo career for quite some time now. His signature style has become synonymous with a diverse collection of melodies and compositions. Theolodge has honed his musical skills over the years, creating a laid-back sound with his unique style and voice. Influenced by some of hip-hop’s elite artist, such as Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Kanye West, Missy E, Outkast, Biggie and Tupac, Theolodge is ready to take his place as the Next Big Thing.

Hip Hop is an art and a movement and he works hard to perfect his craft. Not a stranger to the global stage, Theolodge began to expand his music globally by traveling to Midem, the worlds’ largest music conference in Cannes, France where he shared the stage with Wyclef Jean from the  “The Fugees” in 2017.

The performance with Wyclef opened the doors for a tour to Mumbai, India to perform as a headliner act for the “Totempole Music Festival”. Since 2018, he has been on tours to Europe at least twice a year, making touring overseas a regular process for his brand while expanding to the United Kingdom and the Cayman Islands.

Theolodge has been honored to have his music appear on the national TV channel “The CW” multiple times as well as Netflix. He has been working with Florida’s Natural Orange Juice company, which lead to being featured on a billboard. He has endorsements in the works and is looking to partner with other global companies to expand his brand “KREW” and get his music in the ears of everyone that enjoys feel good vibes.

In 2020 he released two singles: “Hallelujah” and “Good Morning” and is currently working on his fifth studio album. Theolodge lives by his favorite quote: “Dreams don’t work unless you do!”

In a lane of his own he strives to be different from the over-abundance of cookie-cutter rappers in the game today.

Cameron “Quote” Bailey does it all to honor his late mother

 

Baltimore rapper Cameron “Quote” Bailey discovered his love of music at a young age. His mother passed when he was only 9 years old leaving him angry and confused. Instead of turning to the streets as many do he decided to redirect those emotions to poetry and writing music. He partnered up with a couple of friends to do music but soon after became a solo artist.

Cameron chose the stage name “Quote” as he used to always quote other artists. One day he said to himself “the world will quote me.” Quote’s drive and determination is much different from other artists because he doesn’t do it for money or fame but for his mom and everyday looks to the sky saying “Mommy I will make you proud.”

Getting to know Zeeno

Where are you from?

A: Brooklyn, NY

How long have you been doing what you’re doing and how did you get started in the first place?

A: I’ve been recording music for 25yrs now. Started out as a teenager in ’93.

Who were the first influences on your music and style?

A: Probably Method Man. MOP. Redman. Early Big Daddy Kane. I’ve always been a fan of dude that really rap.

In your opinion who is the most influential and successful artist in your genre today and why?

A:Well I believe success is unique for each person. So if record sells equal success to you then I would say Drake is the most successful at this time. Kendrick as well. I personally like the career of J. Cole. I love the live performance aspect of it and he’s constantly touring. So yeah, there’s a few examples of what I would consider successful.

What aspect of the music making process excites you most, and what aspect discourages you the most?

A: I really like performing to a live audience. The ability to create a moment with a stranger is exciting to me. I’m not a big fan of doing press.

In your experience thus far, what is the best piece of advice in this business you actually followed? And one you didn’t follow, but now know for sure that you should have?

A: The best advice I’ve been giving that i actually followed was to remain true to myself with my art. Don’t start doing things just for money. The best advice I’ve gotten that I didn’t follow immediately but wish I would have is forget about a record deal. Invest in yourself. I’m doing it now but had I listen to that advice 15yrs ago I’d be a lot further along in that journey.

Which ingredient do you think is most essential in making your sound and style the way it is?

A:Truth. I feel like as long as I put my truth in my art it will always be a reflection of some part of me.

What single are you currently pushing and what will you be dropping next?

A: Right now we are pushing “Zeeno & The G’z” feat. Fly Ty of the Rockboy G’z. The full self-entitled LP “Zeeno” will be available everywhere 5/7/2020.

What can fans expect from you in the future and where can they stay up to date on your movement?

A: Fans can expect me to continue to push the envelope as an artist. Also look for me to throw my hat into the executive game. Big Band Music Group is my production company and I plan to start laying the foundation down for that. Helping other artist achieve their own personal goals.
