Houston’s premiere artist Breadman is getting ‘Big Bags’ of ‘Dirty Money’

Saturday, January 20th, 2018

Houston, Texas has long been known as one of the mainstays of urban, particularly rap music. From the early explosion of hip hop into mainstream to the recent wave of artists making names for themselves, while using the avenues blazed by the city’s early entertainment industry architects, Houston is definitely a stakeholder in modern entertainment.

Enter Breadman, a breakout star from Houston’s infamous South Side. He, in conjunction with his HKMG brand, is putting out some really good music – as well as up and coming artists. All of this is done under the guise of hard work, tenacity and consistency – three keys that are sure to lead to continued success.

Breadman’s most recent offering, “Big Bags”, is a rousing anthem featuring Houston mover and shaker G-Hustler. The video depicts Breadman and G-Hustler in their element – rapping about getting to the proverbial bag. It’s one of many videos recently filmed by Breadman. In late 2017, he dropped the visuals to “Dirty Money”, one of the dopest songs to drop in recent memory. It features Houston super crooner Eddie Coke and the video is directed by the legendary Mr. Boomtown – quite an accomplishment for Breadman, as his plans are coming together!

We caught up with Breadman to chat about “Big Bags”. Here’s what he had to say:

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Your new video “Big Bags” is doing quite well. Tell us about the concept and song itself. How did it come about?

BREADMAN: Me and the homie G-Hustler know each other from outside of the studio, so from the street side of what we know about each other, it was trying to get a bag together. By us both doing music, it was only right for us to link up that way since we was already linked up in the streets.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: How did the collaboration with G-Hustler come about and how was working with him?

BREADMAN: He met me at the lab one day on some other business and from there we just went at. I had some beats going and he came up with a hook. And from there we came up with Big Bags.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: You had a banner year in 2017. What’s on the horizon in 2018 for HKMG and Breadman?

BREADMAN: 2017 was like one of those, “Y’all better look out for me years”, whereas 2018, Imma make it a year where y’all know who I am – while getting a bigger bag.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Your work ethic is definitely up there – take us through a day in the life of Breadman and let our readers know what drives you and what makes you so successful.

BREADMAN: My everyday personal goal is to do better than I did the day before, no matter what it was I was doing. And I always plan ahead to make my next day better. Just knowing I have a lot of people who don’t believe in me, makes me strive harder at what I’m doing. And for the people that I already have believing in me, I strive even harder for them, cause those are the ones I know I can’t let down.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: You’re currently one of the premiere artists in Houston/Down South. What advice do you have for up and coming artists, as far as them becoming a success?

BREADMAN: And for some of the up and coming artists that’s trying to do it, one thing I can say, and that is Always invest in yourself.

(NEW HEAT) Breadman ft. Eddie Coke – “Dirty Money” (VIDEO)

Friday, December 1st, 2017

Houston Texas powerhouse artist Breadman recently linked with super crooner Eddie Coke to create “Dirty Money”, one of the hottest songs to hit the airwaves in some time. Filmed/directed/edited by the legendary Mr. Boomtown, the visuals to “Dirty Money” chronicle Breadman’s quest to launder his fast cash in the most epic of ways. The video is, of course, merely imaginative conceptualization, but entertaining nonetheless.

Assisted by Eddie Coke’s powerful voice, Breadman takes us through a “day in the life of” type of journey. In real life, Breadman is a well-known Houston, Texas based rapper, entrepreneur and label owner. “Dirty Money” picks up where his grind and hustle left off – it’s a tale of getting it out the mud and turning the hustle into legitimate businesses to ensure a strong and viable future for him – as well as his family. Breadman says, “I came up with Dirty Money one day, just sitting back thinking, “Man, I been hustling hard and putting it up like I’m supposed to; now I need to find a way to do legal business.” With respect to Eddie Coke’s talent and presence on “Dirty Money”, Breadman adds, “Eddie has a voice that can make everything come to life. On top of that, we work well together.”

And Breadman’s known for making a dollar out of fifteen cents. Whether it’s his Hood Kats Music Group (HKMG) imprint, his HKMG Studio where the magic is made or his other business endeavors, Breadman is making sure to live up to his stage name. He not only gets “bread” – he also makes sure his team eats, an area in which a lot of fellow entertainers are lacking. One conversation with him and you come to the realization that he’s not only a humble cat, but he’s smart and quick to draw up a plan that will help further his music career – and provide a solid future for his corporate ventures.

Breadman’s laid back style and effortless flow is well-complemented by Eddie Coke’s extraordinary voice on “Dirty Money”. It’s a perfect representation of a well thought out single and it’s proof that collaborations can be matches made in musical heaven. The visuals only lend to that. “Dirty Money” is a song that’s a must hear – and it’s available for download and streaming everywhere music is distributed. The video is one for the records books, as it’s affiliated with Mr. Boomtown, historically known for some of urban music’s hottest visuals.

This Is 50 covers Smoke Dogg 870

Tuesday, November 28th, 2017

Who: Smoke Dogg 870

Hailing from: Camden, Arkansas

Current Location: Shelbyville, Tennessee

Current Project: New single “I’m Leaning” (coming soon)

A little known fact is that Arkansas is a hotbed of untapped urban talent, particularly where independent music artists are concerned. Smoke Dogg 870 is not exception in that regard – in fact, he hails from the South Central part of Arkansas, one of the most beautiful parts of the state. His art only lends to the aesthetics of the landscape.
He currently resides in Shelbyville, Tennessee, less than an hour away from the music mecca known as Nashville. He is not only an artist in his own right, but also a label owner. ATM (“Already the Mob”) is the imprint. But the drive to become a stellar success is what pushes Smoke Dogg 870 to become a star. He cites his family, particularly his late mother, as his reason for his solid work ethic and determined spirit. In fact, he is certain he will become a rags to riches story in a very short period of time.
We caught up with Smoke Dogg 870 earlier today and here’s what he had to say:

Tell us about yourself.

SMOKE DOGG 870: I’m an independent artist who runs a label called “Already the Mob”(ATM) that I started from the ground up. I currently live in Shelbyville, Tennessee. I’ve been back and forward from here and Arkansas my entire life. I pride myself in my music because it’s based on my real life. I’ve been through a lot and things are finally looking up for me. My mom passed away a couple years ago and she has been my biggest inspiration to keep it pushing with my music career. I have 3 brothers and 1 sister who have been there for me since Day 1 – always encouraging me to keep it pushing. I’ve been making music over half my life. I released my first mixtape at the age of 14.

Tell us about your new single “I’m Leaning”:

SMOKE DOGG 870: It’s a party song that will have everyone vibing.

Arkansas is a hotbed of raw talent. How does being from there influence your style and art?

SMOKE DOGG 870: Being from Arkansas helped me find myself in the type of music I wanted to make. Being that I was in an area where Louisiana, Atlanta and Tennessee were right up the road, their music always came to me, so hearing all the different styles, lingo, etc. showed me that I could be myself and my people would embrace it. Being that I’m from a poverty stricken city and being able to make it out made me want to make a lot of inspirational music to give other people hope that it is possible.

What sets you apart from other artists?

SMOKE DOGG 870: I have been through a lot in my life and my music reflects that. I tell the story from the other side of the gun. You can hear the pain in my voice when you listen to me. I show my fans that not all artists talk about the “glamorous” side of life. I give my fans something they can relate to.

Where can we expect to see your career in 5 years?

SMOKE DOGG 870: I see myself on top of the game, making ways for other people to make it out the struggle and see a better side of life.

Do you have hopes of getting into any other avenue(s) of entertainment?

SMOKE DOGG 870: I really want to get into acting. I love putting on a show. I’ve always wanted to see myself in a movie or two.

“1 LIFE”

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015

1 life

Today I met 3 amazing young men(Jamal Williams, Terrence Shivers, & Quinten Williams), that’s out here trying to better themselves, not be in the street or behind bars. They drove from Atlanta just to met me and when i say i felt so honored and blessed just to be in their presence, I know more than they were to be in mines. One of the young men just gave his life to christ sunday and when he told me, chills just went all through me because you don’t often here of 20 and 21 yr old young men doing that these days. What really stood out to me the most was they quit their jobs and move from Cleveland, Ohio to Atlanta, Ga on HOPE, A DREAM & FAITH!! I was so in shocked but it touched my heart to see them be so excited and in tune with who they were and what they want. I can’t express enough of how they love music and most of their own. When you REALLY love what you do, you will sacrifice, do without, and move in a way that no one would ever understand but it’s really not meant to be understood by everyone. These young men out here putting in work, getting scammed by people, etc but they refuse to give up. I asked “Why go so hard for this music that you putting out?” They told me “Well if you don’t believe in yourself or what you do, who will!” I couldn’t have said it better myself. “1 life” has so many meanings that I could go on and on about, but the name actually speaks volumes for itself. You only get “1” so you better make the best of the one you have, cuz when this one is over you can’t get a repeat!! Check out these young men song, watch they videos on YouTube and give them some love, I promise you won’t regret it.  My Thoughts Of The Day
