HEAT EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Big Boy Records 247 on brink of releasing Young Gabe’s album

Tuesday, February 4th, 2014

The law of attraction suggests that positive energy begets positive energy.  According to record mogul Charles Temple (Chucc) of Big Boy Records, the foundation for most of New Orleans premier hip hop artists such as Mystikal, Black Menace, Sporty T., Fiend, Partners N Crime, Ghetto Twiinz, G Slimm, Insane, and more, it’s wise to let music speak for itself. “When it’s hot, they came looking for us and we still believe in that concept.”  As the release of Young Gabe’s album nears, The Heat Magazine had the opportunity to interview the newest face at Big Boy Records.

Any music writer can regurgitate the greatness that exists within the biography and discography of Big Boy Records, but The Heat Magazine wants our readers to stay in the know with the latest developments.  Big Boy Records 247 represents a new twist on the reputable brand while Chucc, Cise HD (Precise), and Young Gabe continue to shake up the music industry daily with cerebral ideas that ultimately cater to their listeners. In short, Big Boy Records is back and they are working earnestly “247”.  Peep out the in-depth heart-to-heart interview.

The Heat Magazine: How long have you been professionally rapping?

Young Gabe

Young Gabe

Young Gabe: Since High School.

The Heat Magazine: What type of artists inspire you?

Young Gabe: Jay-Z, Tupac, Biggie, etcetera.

The Heat Magazine: What’s your vision as an artist?

Young Gabe: To be the best rapper that ever done it and I want my music to reach the world.

The Heat Magazine: Who are the producers  you are working with?

Young Gabe: The best producers to ever do it: Niyo Da Vinci (Flight School), Beat Doctor, Cali Aseeduse and last but not least the best to ever do it  with record sales.  (Grossing 20,000,000) D.J. Leroy “Precise” Edwards.

The Heat Magazine: Tell us about your hobbies.

Young Gabe: White Water Rafting, skydiving, and skiing.

The Heat Magazine: What is the title of your hottest single?

Young Gabe: “Daddy Money”.YOUNGGABECOVERART3

The Heat Magazine: Describe your style.

Young Gabe: I am unpredictable. I can do anything. I can sing, rap, and dance.

The Heat Magazine: What separates you from others?

Young Gabe: My team.  I’m in my own lane. I surround myself with the best to ever do this.

The Heat Magazine: Tell us the name of any of your other releases?

Young Gabe: Young Gabe Feat. Jay Dawg – Money.

The Heat Magazine: Share some of  your current performances or features.

Young Gabe: I have performed with artists such as Cam’Ron, Freeway, Kevin Gates, Ghetto Twiinz, Ludacris, Young Joc, T-Pain, Baby Boy, Curren$y, Juvenile, Mystikal, Cali Aseeduse, Gimini and Fiend. Some of the featured artists are Juvenile, K Gates, Philadelphia Freeway, Greedi, Mystikal, Skip, CiseHD, Cali Aseeduse, and Franchise Tief.

The Heat Magazine: Do you have any other plans as an artist?

Young Gabe: Yeah,  acting and finding hot talent.

The Heat Magazine: Big Boy Records was very instrumental in the development of the New Orleans hip hop movement.  Tell us about your relationship with Charles “Chucc” Temple.

Young Gabe: I met him at the Avondale Shipyard scaffolding on ships.  He taught me how to weld and scaffold on ships for the Navy and from that point on we have been like brothers.  We opened up a  clothing store “247 Fashions and Street Dreams Apparel” after Hurricane Katrina back in 05. We also hooked back up with Cise and opened up Big Boy Records 247.

acba3a785712f7081275b67ac0bef97c

The Heat Magazine:  Chucc, could you share your vision with our readers?

Chucc: Basically, I have been sitting back for over 20 years watching the music game. Nobody has really took it to the next level as a record company in New Orleans since Cash Money and No Limit. A lot of cats have records but many don’t have record companies. Big Boy didn’t have anyone to learn from when we first started.  We were our own worst enemy. The game owes me and Cise and we’re not going to stop.

The Heat Magazine: I understand that it’s more to Chucc and Cise than being CEO’s.  Tell us about it if you don’t mind.

Chucc: Cise and I participate in the creative process with our artists. We work day and night to help make our artists hot and pull the best out of them. We’ve always been apart of the creative process even though we didn’t always get or take credit for it.

The Heat Magazine: Could you tell us about working with Young Gabe.

Chucc: Gabe is the easiest and most open minded artist I’ve worked with.  Not to take away from any of the other artists I’ve worked with.  I can’t put it into words but Gabe is giving it to you from the first song to the end.  He’s very talented and you can’t fake talent. Either you have it or you don’t.  That’s the business.

The Heat Magazine: Young Gabe how has living in New Orleans impacted your music?

Young Gabe: New Orleans has granted me the opportunity to become the artist I am today. With that being said, its grants me the opportunity to inspire other artists right here in their own backyard. The impact New Orleans have on me is expressed through my music.

The Heat Magazine: How important is education to you?

Young Gabe: Education is very important I must say. I graduated from high school with honors and also completed two years of college. Actually my music career has affected my education.

The Heat Magazine: How do you feel about the community?

Young Gabe: My community, the black community,  I just dislike the fact we were taught how to hate and never learned how to love. Welcome to New Orleans. I will do whatever it takes to help better our kids in the New Orleans school district as my music becomes accepted by the world.  I would start with helping to better education for our school system by providing better books and computers. My goals are to start a Daddy Money Foundation to help single parents and under privileged children.  I had a dream of destiny and right now I live that dream today.

Mr. Marcelo talks mixtape, Jetlife, and more.

The Heat Magazine was able to have a “heart to heart” interview with Mr. Marcelo about his latest endeavors.

The former No Limit rap star is also the older brother of Curren$y.  Beyond coincidence, both brothers have been able to reach milestones of success in the music industry.  Mr. Marcelo’s latest release “Og Luv Dat Og” has proven to be a success and features Curren$y, Juvenile, Young Roddy, Ceto, 6 Shot, Wacko and more.  The tape is hosted by DJ Swu and is an official release from the Jetlife Never Die Corporation.

The Heat Magazine wanted to keep all “Jet Lifers” and exclusive “Marcelo fans” aware of his latest efforts. From “Hey P-Poppers” to “Brick Livin” to “Return Of The Big Homie”  to “Say Dat” to “Scarface Remix”, Marcelo continues to grind it out with good music and real lyrics.

The Heat Magazine: You and Curren$y are brothers. Our readers want to know how did you both end up being heavy into hip hop?

Mr. Marcelo: We started out as “ygs” and being around music  so much, it came natural.

The Heat Magazine: What advice would you give to the new generation of artists in New Orleans and surrounding areas?

Mr. Marcelo: Social networks/websites make things a lot easier nowadays. So you have to take advantage of that.  Be yourself.  Fans want to hear about you and not what’s made up. Lies might go a long way but so does the truth.

The Heat Magazine: How important is education?

Mr. Marcelo: Education is super important. Knowledge is power, so you can’t keep yourself in a box. You have to expand your hustle. Education helps that.

The Heat Magazine: What’s your favorite New Orleans dish?

Mr. Marcelo: I like seafood.  Anything but oysters. Hahahaha.

The Heat Magazine: What’s your take on violence in New Orleans?

Mr. Marcelo: Honestly, violence never affected me in my lifetime because I saw it so much.  But it’s been eating me up lately because it’s innocent kids now. In my opinion, when you kill an innocent kid, you should turn yourself in. (Angrily) If I know you, the snitch law goes out the door. Period!

The Heat Magazine: You have a large fan base, are you in the process of touring?

Mr. Marcelo: I do several spot dates and I tour with Spitta (Curren$y) and the Jets also.

The Heat Magazine: Describe your style in a few words.

Mr. Marcelo:  I don’t have a style. I just talk “life experiences”. I spit game.  I don’t rap.

The Heat Magazine: What can we look forward to from you and the Jet Life Family?

M. Marcelo: Tours, merchandise, movies, documentaries and more.  It’s no limit to the cash money we are tying to get.
