Nov 2012 14

IAA:  What city and state are you from?

A. DIDDY:  I’m from Charleston, South Carolina, where all the slaves were sold. They say we sound Jamaican, Haitian, or from some kind of island. But we are American; our ancestors are from Africa and were brought over here.

IAA: What is your music background?

A. DIDDY:  I really don’t have any musical background as far as playing instruments, or being in any school bands. But my music background is hip-hop, oldies, R&B, and classics.

IAA:  Why do you want to record and release your own music?

A. DIDDY:  It is my art and craft. It’s a way to express myself to the world. Even though I am not rapping or singing, you can still feel it.

IAA: What are your songs about?

A. DIDDY:   As a producer working with artists, I’ll have them tell a story because every situation is a story. Let me hear your half of it. A real situation, problem with experience and see how I can relate to you. So If I can relate to you, other people can relate to you.

IAA:  Who is your fan base directed towards?

A. DIDDY:  My fan base is toward the people who struggle. Struggle in life and mental state. I’m not from a place where everybody has money. In my city the most expensive stuff we have is the cheapest stuff in another city. So, I want to reach all of those other people who are going through the same thing, and show them you’re not the only one.

IAA:  Who are your musical influences?

A. DIDDY:  My musical influences are Soulja Slim, Boosie, Webbie, 8Ball & MJG, Pachino Dino, Killa Skip, Playa Fly, 36 Mafia, Gangsta Black, TA (Top Authority), Dayton Family, Yo Gotti, Tmac, Hot Boys, Jeezy, Gucci, and the list goes on. I grew up with old school from Patty, Temptations, Frankie Beverly and Maze, Isley, Brian McKnight, and more.

IAA:  How would you describe your music to people?

A. DIDDY:  I only can describe it as original. What everyone is lacking. Not saying everyone ain’t original. It’s  just that everybody’s copycatting everything nowadays.

IAA:  What makes you stand out from other artists?

A. DIDDY:  What makes me stand out is me, my personality, and the way I carry myself. My life and my experiences. My sound is something that I create to be different so I can stand out. You can hear the difference.

IAA:  What are some upcoming projects you are currently working on?

A. DIDDY:   The project that I am working on now is Trap House Instrumentals. I just finished ADiddy Instrumental Vol. 1. You can check that out on datpiff. I got Big Lunny, Crime Boss, Back Boy Sav, and Juice. That’s the home team. They’re all dropping at separate times. You can check out all of the different projects on YouTube. Then there’s my bro, L.B, here in FL who I’m working with now. He has his mixtape and CD that he is working on. So, I have a lot of work lined up. And there is a lot of artists that I didn’t mention that I’m working with as well. So, I’m coming soon.

IAA: What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

A. DIDDY:  My career goal is to have a company that does music, film, games, and videos. Basically, a spot where you can come get tracks for anything or video for anything. I have a lot of goals in life so in 10 years I can see myself as a manager of a company. I can’t really say where I’m going to be because I’m always doing something different but it will be big, I can say that.

IAA:  How can fans access your music and contact you?

A. DIDDY:  You can access my music on my ReverbNation. I am getting a new site built for people to shop my beats.

With time and experiences both good and bad, the PaperChasers continued on to gain more and more exposure by creating not only better music for listeners to devour, but actually creating a sound for the Richmond area that has never been duplicated, not even close.

It was once said, “don’t judge a book by its cover”, a motto the “Paper Chasers” are almost always familiar with when faced with questions about the group.

GET TO KNOW – INFAMOUS-C – SOUTH CAROLINA’S HOTTEST STAR!
Nov 2012 07

The Infamous-C is ready to take the Hip-Hop world by storm and put South Carolina back on the music map. With his complex rhymes and dope flow, Infamous-C is ready to make a name for himself in the music industry.

IAA: Explain a little bit about who you are and where you’re from.

Infamous-C:  Well, I go by the Infamous-c and I’m an up and coming artist from Charleston, SC. I set out to be a different type of rapper. I feel like I’m coming with something different than what’s currently out there. I want to give people the real me and I would definitely describe myself as a nerd rapper but in a good way. I’m not trying to preach to anybody. This is the entertainment industry and I want to be the best at entertaining the fans.

IAA: How would you describe your sound?

Infamous-C:  I would say my sound is more college than anything else but you can still dance to it and have fun. And I still want to be extra lyrical for the fans of the 90’s style of hip-hop back when you had to come with a message. I think when people hear the music they’re going to know that I studied some of the all time greats.

IAA: Who are some of the all time greats in your opinion?

Infamous-C: Definitely B.I.G. ,Tupac, Nas, Scarface, Big Pun, and Eminem. The list goes on. All of them influenced me to want to pursue music, especially Biggie.

IAA: South Carolina is pretty much an untapped market. What do you think SC can bring to the table?

Infamous-C: I think we have a lot of talented artists in my state and not just in Charleston but all over. We’ve been trying for a long time to break through and make ourselves known in the game but I don’t think anyone has gotten to the level that they want yet even though there has been some success locally. I think I can put my city on the map and put people on to south Cak Musik.

IAA: How can people get in contact with you and check out your music?

Infamous-C:  They can go to my fan page on Facebook. That’s facebook.com/infamousc.outtacharleston. They can follow me on Twitter @theic2021.
