Meztheprod, The Sky Is The Limit!

Published

on

While it is not a secret what Meztheprod is capable of, we do know that his capacity to set trends extends much beyond that of the normal up-and-coming entrepreneur. Let’s rewind to 2019 when Mez founded and launched Rap Aechelon, his magazine and media company. One month after launching their third magazine, they were featured on a billboard in Times Square, New York. Mez then went one step further by launching Rapaechelon.com, a website that covers popular and alternative entertainment, as well as sports. 

However, it did not end there. With his strength and ambition, he opted to make video games for the Microsoft Xbox, one of the most popular platforms available today. Then, he founded his own gaming company, Genie Interactive Games, which focuses on AAA PC and console games. Mez, a native of Washington, D.C., grew up creative and impoverished like any other child. Mez knew from a young age, however, that his artistic nature would lead him to great chances. He has demonstrated conclusively that regardless of who you are, if you believe and act on your belief, things will emerge. Meztheprod has landed a media position with Amazon Video to develop a series of artist documentaries in the near future. For Mez, the sky’s the limit. Make certain you follow him here.

KETU (@Ketuikediuba) has finally released his debut EP, Ano-Ele. The smooth operator is ready to establish himself as a new voice in the industry. His sound is reminiscent of Sampha, Frank Ocean, and GIVĒON. Every record sounds like he put everything he could into it. The Nigerian singer/songwriter only needed 15 minutes to capture the essence of his latest project. Tracks like “Supernova” & “2020” tell a story of heartbreak and fear. For most, love is a scary topic, and anyone who has loved someone will feel these lyrics in their heart. KETU battles with his feelings on each of the five spacey tracks.

Ano-Ele’s acapella lyrics could stand alone as a book of poetry. There is not one wasted line on the new EP. His singles, “Sky’s Falling/From The Start” & “Rain On Me,” undoubtedly highlight the highly soothing listening experience. Fans shouldn’t be surprised if they hear one of these five records sampled on one of their favorite rapper’s upcoming albums. KETU’s eye for design can be attributed to his work as a digital illustrator with multiple Fortune 500 companies like The NFL, Netflix, etc. There is no limit to where his artistry can go.

KETU has found a new haven in LA. The HE(A)RD/Guin Records artist is in a great position. The summer will be fruitful; with his team credited for multiple records on Kendrick Lamar’s latest album, the sky is the limit. KETU’s signature sound will lead him to become one of the most sought-after voices in the industry. Ano-Ele will be regarded highly in his discography.

Chicago has been the only state that has continued to bring good and quality music to the people and the music industry. From South Chicago, G Ben was always inspired by music such as his father, James Stroud, as part of the 1970s hit song I’m Still Here on the US R&B Billboards chart.

Coming from the legend family, G Ben knew that music and building artists were in the game, and to keep the head high for his brand “Base Builders Co,” he had to move a little further from just wearing hats. His knowledge about music and witnessing greatness in the artist, led him to sustainable growth in the music industry.

G Ben had a dream of doing something BIG and not moving around with the name of his father, and as he has the genetics of music in his DNA, he influences people to go out with music. He was always determined to change his surroundings and began envisioning doing online business promotion and how he could change the nature of music from within himself to others.

Thus, with the launch of his agency “Base Builders Co,” he got a chance to promote new music comers and provide some strategies that help these upcoming music artists find new visions and platforms that help them succeed.

The online momentum has been engaging a lot of music lovers. And with the Placement of a Playlist and other Marketing tactics available on social media platforms like YouTube, SoundCloud, Shazam, Apple, and other hottest websites and blogs, the company has become a top-notch hub for new artists and followers, increasing to 1 Million. Base Builders Co has been supporting the people of Chicago to improvise the true vision of G Ben.   

The road towards competing with his vision was not easy, but G Ben stayed on his task of expanding the horizon of music and making connections for a legacy that will rule a lifetime.

Music is the thread that connects us all. Lousiana’s own Dante’ Harris knows how to create significant connections. His bond with prolific producer What Up five is shaping into one of his best yet. Their relationship started years back, but as of late, they have been focused on creating moments musically. Their latest tape RED.eth is a cryptocurrency-inspired project shaking up things for creatives in their lane. Artists like Money Man, Rich The Kid, and many more have made waves in the crypto space. Harris is looking to create a niche for himself with the help of his talented producer homie/collaborator What Up 5.

Check out our conversation with Dante’ Harris below!

4Sho: What city are you from/ Where are you based now?

Harris: I’m from L-Town. LaPlace, Louisiana. I’m based in the city of LA.

4Sho: What is your artist/producer name? What is your real name? How did you get your artist/producer name?

Harris: Dante’ Harris. Dante’ is the real name. I took my deceased father’s last name instead of my mother’s. Long Live Cardell Harris. At what point in your life did you decide to pursue a career in music?

Harris: I started freestyling at like 11 years old, but I never really took it seriously and started WRITING until I was 14. The first studio session was at 15, and the rest was history. I feel like I’m just starting now in a sense because I’m bringing a brand with me

4Sho: Has your upbringing played a role in shaping who you are and defining your sound today? If so, how?

Harris: Of course. You’ll get more of my upbringing now from my music moving forward. I think my sound is so versatile I can tell my story however I need to. And that came from training and discipline. I am perfecting the craft. My situation as far as homelessness, people trying to block my career, family situations, etc., everything in my life influences my sound.

4Sho: How would you describe your sound to readers who may not be familiar with you?

Harris: I would tell them to hear it for themselves. But if I must, it’s like the universe is rap battling.

4Sho: What ultimately inspired you to dedicate yourself to a music career?

Harris: Me making music in the first place inspired me; certain people encouraged me to be better. I just felt it was for me after a while. I don’t have the two-year rap story or the blew-up in high school story. I’ve kind of just been perfecting the craft from the jump.

4Sho: What’s one reason you are passionate about music, and what inspires you?

Harris: It was a time when this shit was all I had to keep going, so it’s a dynamic relationship in general when it comes to music 

4Sho: Do you have any hobbies outside of music? What do you do to stay creative?

Harris: Investing honestly. And lately, I’ve been fucking with the water heavy, lmao. I just went jet skiing, and I think that’s my thing 

4Sho: What were you doing before music?

Harris: Well, I started when I was 11, so I was a kid. But before this leg of music, I was more into entrepreneurial efforts.

4Sho: Who are some of your main musical influences?

Harris: $pitta and Tunechi. I’ve studied the greats to learn skills, but honestly, those two have the most significant impact on me.

4Sho: What are some of your music career goals for the future?

Harris: Nationwide and international tours. I want to turn the world up. Honestly, my catalog is broad enough to have some shit for wherever I go.

4Sho: Tell us the name of the project you are currently promoting? What inspired this project?

Harris: RED.eth is the project we fucking with right now. That transparency and timeless music mixed with unmatched honesty give it a unique experience as a project.

And the inspiration is simply taking the next step with my music. Branding and tying in my everyday life, so I kept it Crypto.

4Sho: Date this project dropped or is it set to drop?

Harris: 4/20/22 OUT NOW! Roll something up, pour something up (if that’s what you do), and press play.

4Sho: What is this project about in your own words?

Harris: It’s honestly my music coming of age. It’s more mature and precise than any other project I have. It’s about how far I came and where I’m currently with it.

4Sho: What’s one of the proudest moments of your music career so far?

Harris: Honestly, tied between working with Boosie and Performing at the Novo. The Boosie thing just showed how manifestation works. Like this, the nigga, we would all jam back in the hood. The show was crazy, too, the biggest crowd I’ve had, and it feels right.

4Sho: What’s next for you? Are you working on any upcoming projects we should be on the lookout for? Include some dates if you have them.

Harris: Next is BLUE.eth. We will keep it going by fusing music with the crypto space. You are all probably getting that late June or early July.

4Sho: What message do you hope fans take away from your music?

Harris: Man, I just want people to take affirmative actions with their dreams, goals, and aspirations. If you can think of it or see it, it can be yours. Just quit bullshitting and get that shit.

4Sho: Where can we follow you on social media?

Harris: @danteharrismusic IG @dantefoolish Twitter
