Get to Know Artist: BLO
I started rapping at 9 years old, and running my label, Bomb Baby Unlimited at 14 years old.
I know that's right! Now, do you compose your own music material or do you have a ghostwriter?
I write my own music as well as music for others. Aside from rap, I also write R&B, and Pop
what do you think of rappers that do not write their own material?
I know a lot of people [rip] artists that don't write their own material, but not everybody can do everything. Some people are great writers but cant sing, some are great singers but cant write, some people just have a better appeal, better personality than others. So in some cases you can understand why a ghostwriter is necessary. And I don't knock nobody's gig. Do your thing!
Where do you see yourself 10 years from now?
Still CEO of Bomb Baby Unlimited! But I want Bomb Baby to be one of the top Indie labels in the business. Not sure if I will still be making records myself but you better believe I will still be doing shows and performing.
What makes you stand out from other rappers that are also pursuing a music career?
The fact that I'm not afraid to show that I'm a regular person. No gimmick, I'm not a super gangster,a drug dealer or "Thug". I'm not a pimp or player! I'm a regular guy, going through regular things that everyone can relate to. But I have a way with words and I know I'm good at it so I wont hesitate to let that be known. I also think the fact that I don't really try to follow trends or be a copycat I just do me. Take it or leave it, no frills.
Speaking of originality, can you give us a brief description of your album?
My album is a justified introduction to B.L.O . It shows me flexing my lyrical skills, and making magic with words but then it also shows that I feel and go through things that people go through everyday as well. I think it's different from anything out right now but definitely worth the listen because it's quality from beginning to end.
Who do you see yourself collaborating with, as far as a sign artist? and why?
First and foremost Alma V because I think she is on the road to greatness and is one hit away from being the next big star! But I always been a die hard Vanessa Williams fan, she has been very underrated throughout her career, I think we would have a real cool collabo.
