Phreedom Records is headed to the top by way of its CEO Co’Baby

Thursday, February 8th, 2018

Resiliency is often the cornerstone of the essence of many men who are born in New Orleans, Louisiana or raised in Detroit, Michigan. It can be a struggle, but also a beautiful thing when one rises above the hardships that can be encountered in both cities. Both cities have economic systems that are often set up for the underdog to fail. Often times it takes a lot more work to taste success.

Meet Corey “Co’Baby” Coleman (or “Co” as he is also affectionately known), CEO and founder of Phreedom Records. Co has quite an interesting history in New Orleans’ entertainment arena – but for as interesting as it is, there are few who have the same pedigree and even fewer who have put in the work and time. And Co is resilient, to say the least. He is the epitome of perseverance and because of that, he will go down in Louisiana music history as one of the architects of its success.

Co’Baby with the phenomenal comedian Sheryl Underwood

This humble soul works tirelessly to make sure his young artists get on. When you meet Co, you’ll notice the humility right away, in that he often fades into the background, until such time he needs to make his presence known – and that he does quite well. It has been said that a team is only as strong as its leader and that for such a leader to be effective, that he must be willing to handle the duties of those he leads, as well as his own. Co definitely does that – from being a master networker, to providing the financial backing to so many, to making his family’s dream of owning and running a premiere label come true, Co is the catalyst to so many fires. His hard work and never give up attitude keep him at the right place at just the right time. The most beautiful thing though, is that Phreedom Records is a family owned business. Co, along with his wife Amy, are working diligently to ensure that Phreedom not only becomes a household name, but an entertainment dynasty.

Co’Baby & Phreedom artist Lucki Lew

Co got his start in the music business when the entity now known as Cash Money was in upstart mode. To say he learned the business from the inside out at a time urban music was really taking a foothold in the South, is a staunch understatement. One of his main goals is for his label’s artists to drop timely, quality music. Co has been responsible for several hits lately, including Lucki Lew’s “My Lil Yeah”, a single featuring standout Tweeday, and “Hotspot”, a fiery (pun intended) club joint featuring Level.

Co’Baby with New Orleans superstar Young Greatness

We recently caught up with Co to talk about his history, dreams and aspirations. We had quite the interesting conversation with him – here’s how it went:

TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF.

CO: I’m a God fearing man who loves life, phamily, and I work for what I want out of life.

SINCE YOU’RE FROM THE CUISINE CAPITAL OF THE WORLD, WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE MEAL?

CO: Well cooked T-Bone steak, no redness showing, and a loaded baked potato

WHERE WERE YOU BORN?

CO: Born in New Orleans in 1969. Raised in Detroit.

WHAT DRIVES YOU?

CO: My phamily and my will to help others win is what drives me.

HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY? WHAT ARTISTS HAVE YOU WORKED WITH AND WHAT PRODUCERS DO YOU WORK WITH?

CO: I started when I was in high school at Henry Ford High School in Detroit, Michigan. I was a back-up singer in a group called the Gigolos. Then I moved back to New Orleans and met Ronald and Brian Williams. We were street guys. After a couple of years we decided to start Ca$h Money. I stayed working for the company for a few years doing the office work, went on the road with them and did Road Manager duties for the artists Lil Slim, PMW, Mr. Ivan, Ms. Tee, Pimp Daddy, and UNLV. Part of being the Road Manager meant driving all of the artists to and from shows. Now I currently work with fire producers Jay Da Menace of HITZ, KC Da Producer, and Nave Monjo for my own label, Phreedom Records. My artists have collaborated with Jay Jones of Young Money, Jay Da Menace, Kango Slim of PNC, Tweeday, Level, Trae of Hyperphyll, and have opened shows for well-known artists like Jacquees, Kevin Gates, Colonel Loud, Z-RO, and Scarface, just to name a few.

YOU HAVE QUITE A RESUME. TAKE US THROUGH A DAY IN THE LIFE AT PHREEDOM RECORDS.

CO: A day at Phreedom…well it’s always what’s next. Who can I work with to get my team noticed, schedule studio sessions, plan promotional trips, travel arrangements, hotel accommodations – constantly on social media creating a public presence, researching and determining the scams from the legit contacts and projects – just constantly pushing.

WHERE CAN WE EXPECT TO SEE PHREEDOM RECORDS IN THE NEXT 2, 5 AND EVEN 10 YEARS?

CO: In the next 2 to 10 years I pray to God Phreedom Records will be a household name that phamilies can relate to, young and old. I want Phreedom to do everything – Gospel, Country, R&B, Hip Hop, Techno, EDM, and Funk. We’ll continue to do charity work and be visible in the community, providing sponsorships and opening outreach centers that helps kids get focused on positive moves in life. And also, continuing to love God and follow his path while growing revenue for all. Our motto is One God, One Love.

EDITOR’S NOTE: It is a great thing to see someone as genuine and positive as the Colemans grow their label (Phreedom Records) and continue to help others. We have known them for a while now and they are always supportive, positive and trying to help the community in any way possible. We are excited at their upcoming projects and we are always happy to see their artists prosper as well.

(NEW HEAT) Pee Wee Da Kidd – “Like A Villain” (VIDEO)

Friday, December 1st, 2017

Like A Villain (Explicit) by Pee Wee Da Kidd on VEVO.

Young, vibrant and charismatic, Louisiana artist Pee Wee Da Kidd is an up and coming artist/songwriter who definitely bears watching. His latest offering, the visuals to his song “Like A Villain”, chronicles everyday life and struggle Down South.

Hailing from a small Southwestern Louisiana town nestled between Lake Charles and Lafayette, Pee Wee Da Kidd is proof positive that being from a tiny area does not mean you can’t make it. In fact, it only makes him grind harder so he can be the shining star he is destined to become.

“Like A Villain” gives an up close and personal look at Pee Wee Da Kidd’s street side, but make no mistake about it – Pee Wee has definite crossover appeal. He is also the epitome of hard work paying off. He recently inked a distribution deal through Empire by way of entertainment powerhouse Starvin Lion Entertainment. Pee Wee is most definitely working up the ranks of independent artists.

Case of the ex. Safaree “ScaffBeezy” Samuels opens up about his highly-publicized breakup with longtime girlfriend Nicki Minaj on his emotional new song “Love the Most.” SB reflects on happier times in their 12-year relationship before addressing their demise (“We both went to sleep in the same bed of lies”).

“What a shame it took a split for them to know I was your man,” he raps. “Got so tired of hiding and head high with no pride in it / Guess I wasn’t cool enough ’cause in our pictures be hidin’ it.”

He also shares his dreams of starting a family with Nicki (“12 years up in flames, thought you would have had my kid”) and her steamy kiss with Nas in her “Ride By My Side” video (“Had to watch you kiss Nas and pretend it’s all cool / Inside I was feeling like a motherfu**in’ fool”).

“PRINCESS BEAUTY BAR & BOUTIQUE”

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2015

 

princess b 0

If anyone could tell you one thing about “Ms. TK” is that I LOVE fashion & style. So I stopped in on not only a GREAT friend of mines but where I shop at as well “Princess Beauty Bar & Boutique”, with the one and only Ms. Crystal Flecther. While I was there I felt what better time for me to pick her brain and ask her a few questions about her business. As we always do when I make my visit we have to drink water & chat to see what’s been going on in each other’s lives since our last visit. Today I surprised her when I asked If I could interview her, man if y’all could see the look on her face, I had to laugh myself. She was willing after I finished laughing. I really wanted to know, what made her open a boutique in the first place. “It’s a passion TK, I always loved to shop so I decided to turn my shopping into a business that also helps the women of the community” is what she says to me, so I say “Oh” because she was telling me something that I didn’t know about her. She goes on to say that she love to help every customer look and feel fabulous as well as to help build up their self-esteem but on a low-cost budget. She opened the doors in 2013, with no overhead all by herself. “It makes me feel like a robot sometimes, but I thank GOD that I’m blessed to be able to do it!” she said. In the next 5 yrs, her vision is to be a fashion expert on a tv show, styling celebrities, having her own Brand & some employees so she’ll have time to do what she needs too. Every year for Mother’s Day she does makeovers for mothers which consists of styling them and getting their hair done, with her being a single mother herself is what inspired her to “GIVE BACK” to the community in that form. She also has brought celebrities such as Shekinah(from the T.I. & Tiny show) , and Perez(He’s a celebrity stylist from ATL) to the city and have what we call a “Sip & Shop” event, that’s where women can come mingle, sip & shop all in one place. It’s not easy having a business especially in a city like Columbus, Ga where there is so much of the same things going on all over the city. When your heart is in the right place it does not matter how many of the same things going on opens, as long as GOD is in it, you’ll always win it!!! That’s what she told me in closing, Now those are some GREAT words to live by. If you’re in the city, stop by and give her a visit at 2400 Hamilton Rd, Columbus Ga or you can check her out on her website www.princessboutiqueorg.bigcartel.com She she “ALL” styles of fashion from business, church, allnight-fun, & causul attire, I promise you’ll be hooked because I’M GUILTY MYSELF!! My thoughts of the day!!

Watch perplexed pooch Buck experience his first hiccuping fit

Friday, May 1st, 2015

In a new video uploaded by YouTube user Matthew Kennelly, eight-week-old puppy Buck is seen barking, growling and snapping at the air in confusion as he continues to hiccup.

Not many of us can remember our very first case of the hiccups, but you can pretty much guarantee it was not a pleasant experience – and such is the case for one poor puppy whose adorably perplexed reaction to his first hiccupping fit has earned him internet fame.

YouTube user Matthew Kennelly uploaded a cute clip of Buck, an eight-week-old Heeler puppy, looking totally confused – and slightly perturbed – by his first experience with the hiccups.

The pup, who appears to be on an outing when the hiccups hit, is shown sitting in a grey car seat, wearing a tiny leash harness, while barking and growling with surprise every time he hiccups.
