C.E.D. Interview

Who are you and how long have you been active? Cedric Streeter aka C.E.D. (Cash Every Denomination) and I am CEO of Kaos Records, LLC.  Been in business for roughly 6 years.

What or who do you think will be big in the next year?  Indie artists will dominate the industry next year, period.

 

What’s your setup? How does a track move from initial thought to finished effort?  The process?  To sum it all up…I  don’t take shortcuts.

How has your style evolved and changed over the time since you first started? Where do you think that your flow will go to in the months and years in the future?  The flow changes due to my personal taste, competition, latest trend and what the followers expect from me artistically as an artist.

On any Youtube video, there are countless genres thrown around for any song. How does that help or hurt music and musicians, and what genre(s) would your music fall into?  It doesn’t hurt to mix or mash up genres when creating music.  What could hurt is not controlling and understanding what your creating.

How do you feel things are different between parts of the world?  Diversity, language, culture, social/economic status…all make up the world we inhabit.  It is challenging to try to understand what goes on behind our own neighborhood.

Musicians usually talk about a dream concert, or those earlier acts they would like to play with. What would be your dream lineup?  Metallica, Snoop, Rage Against The Machine, 50 Cent, Jamiroquai, Rakim, KRS One

We’ve heard and seen some crazy things at concerts; what incredible or crazy times have you had on the road?  Performing my current single The Ingredients of Life for the first time at a small venue in Brooklyn and this lady rushes to the stage and starts waving her hands side to side.  It didn’t scare me but I was a little startled and more shocked about the response…

Are drugs/alcohol good or bad for rap or is are the presence of those things just something based out of real life?  Unfortunately they are apart of reality and I feel it should be dealt with on a case by case basis.  Me personally, legalize mariajuana and drink alcohol responsibly.

 

What does the rest of 2012 hold for you, and how can readers connect with you and your music? Get my single The Ingredients of Life @ online music stores and Hustler’s Haven drops July 25th.
