A Conversation With Polo 2Time$

Published

on

Detroit is a city full of hustlers. Learning how to make it to the next level in the rap game takes the right combination of luck, street smarts, and hard work. For Polo 2Time$, he has all three. The rising rapper chopped it up with us to talk about being a rapper and producer, who his inspirations are, what his recording process is like, and more.

Check it out below.

What made you get into rap?
I would say my first time recording a rap song. It was a dope experience, plus it all came natural. I freestyled a verse for a feature with my cousin and it was golden…The rest is history.

Who inspires you?
Curren$y, Wiz Khalifa, Nip Hussle, Gucci Mane, and Future.

What about them inspires you?
These artists all have their own original styles, and in my opinion, have had successful careers. Their consistency & longevity is what is most inspiring.

What’s your recording process like? 
I basically just smoke a lot of weed and chill with my manager and producer(s) while I freestyle to the beats playing and whatever comes to mind, we record.

Which do you like more? Rapping or producing?
Honestly, I wouldn’t say either is my favorite thing to do. I just love to create so whether it’s recording a song or producing a song I’m passionate about both so I get the same rush from each.


What was the recording process like for “Tom&Jerry?”
It was just like any other day at the office. Me and my manager, AddItUp Juan, walked into the studio while Illuminati G was building this crazy beat so we bought it and G pulled it up. Then we smoked weed…“And The Dubs Make A Bigger Spread.”

What’s it like being a part of AddItUp Ent?
It’s like being a part of a southern family. It’s more than just business with them. My management always makes sure I’m good music-wise or just with life in general. I’m thankful for our partnership due to the fact that we see eye to eye and they actually BELIEVE in ME just as much as I do myself, and vice versa.

Who are you looking forward to working with this year?
Curren$y, That’s my favorite artist of ALL TIME so once I score the feature with $pitta I know it’s real. 

What’s the Detroit rap scene like?
Let’s just say it’s growing. The only thing I would improve is the actual opportunities presented to US. 

What’s that one thing that you want to accomplish this year?
My first 1million streams via all digital streaming platforms. I’ll be there in no time but it’s a milestone that will motivate me to push even harder.

Jeda Voice Explains His Lane As “Alternative R&B”

Published

on

Southern California native Jeda Voice is bringing edgy to R&B! The up-and-coming artist fell in love with music at a very young age and although he recorded his first record at the age of 14, his passion for it started way before that. “I wrote my first poem in elementary school,” he says. “After that, my grandma had a big stereo tape player, and as kids, we would play around. I pressed play by mistake, and Jodeci came on. That’s when I fell in love with the art of music.”

With over 1 million streams on Soundcloud, fans are loving Jeda’s distinct and edgy R&B style – or as he calls it “alternative R&B.” Nevertheless, the singer always knew that music was his calling. “Music has this deep soul tie with me. I believe it chose me and we all have choices and my choice is to use my gift the best way possible.” Even when others doubted him, Jeda did not give up. “In the beginning I was told that I couldn’t do it, I was told I wasn’t good enough, people literally laughed at me in the studio,” he says. Having been through the setbacks and negativity, the singer claims he makes music for “the lovers, the underdogs, the rejected ones, the ones that people envy and the ones that people hurt.”

As he continues to work on his craft, Jeda is also looking to dabble into the business world. For now, the rising R&B singer is focused on releasing new music in 2022, and he is currently working on his short film/music video for his single “Purple Rain Pt 2”. Check out “PW8 II” available on all streaming platforms, and follow Jeda on Instagram @jedavoice.
