Quest the 7th hails from historic Algiers, located on the Westbank of New Orleans. He is becoming well known for being one of the most inspirational and creative modern day music artist and songwriter. In addition, his production style is sought after. He is truly growing into the title of “triple threat”, one he plans to wear well. His style is unrivaled in that his music is traditional, yet influential and is helping to reshape the sound of today’s modern Hip Hop. The visuals for “# 7” were filmed and directed by CRG Films and were just made available on You Tube. It is the first single off of the upcoming “Algiers Chronicles 1.5”, a deluxe edition and a re-release of the acclaimed “Algiers Chronicles” that made its debut in 2017.

One of the goals Quest the 7th hopes to achieve through the release of “Algiers Chronicles 1.5” is to breathe new life into a genre that many contend has become dull, boring and downright unoriginal. Quest the 7th is an original and an epic creator and because of these qualities, he is confident he will be successful in not only changing the current state of Hip Hop, but affecting it positively and creating a lane for talented and like-minded creatives. His ultimate goal is to become known internationally as a Hip Hop innovator, serving as a catalyst for the return of real and intellectual Hip Hop music, fused with mainstays like R&B and Jazz. Quest the 7th has been quite successful in creating timeless art and he looks forward to the future as he continues on that same mission.

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.

“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

Rapper YG Shot In Los Angeles: Report

Friday, June 12th, 2015

Rapper YG has reportedly been shot in Los Angeles.

According to TMZ, the Compton rapper was shot three times in the hip at a recording studio early Friday morning. Despite the injuries, YG (real name: Keenon Jackson) was able to get himself into a his car and have a friend drive him to a nearby hospital.

Police were called to the scene and found shell casings and blood, but reportedly found the rapper to be “very uncooperative” when asked about the shooting.

No arrests have been made in the incident, and there is no word on the condition of YG.

YG has a well-documented history with the police, including a 2009 arrest for a parole violation, a 2012 incident where shots were fired on the set of his music video for “I’m a Thug,” and an incident last year where YG had to drop off multiple Drake vs. Lil Wayne dates because the LAPD were rumored to be barring him from performing.

Getting To Know Mushiya Tshikuka From “Cutting It in The ATL”

Sunday, June 7th, 2015

MUSHIYA 1

 

On Wednesday June 3rd 2015, I was sitting talking to a really good friend of mines and in our conversation I told her that I would love to meet “MRS. MUSHIYA” from the show “Cutting It In The ATL.” She told me to go on Instagram and send her a message, I said why not It’s worth a try. Within the hour after I sent the message, I got a call saying that I could go with “The Heat Magazine” and do a write-up on Mrs. Mushiya the very next day. Oh you see how fast GOD works, that’s what i told my friend.  So I spoke it into the universe and it came to pass. I met Mrs. Mushiya that Thursday night and when i tell you that she is a FORCE TO BE RECKON WITH, honey that’s and understatement!! She’s so humbled and beautiful all in the same breath tho. When she found out about my battle with cancer, she was so amazed. She told me that I was beautiful, gave me a HUGE hug and kissed me on my cheek. I was so humbled, grateful and most of all shocked because she showed me that much love and didn’t know me from a can of paint. She told one of her colleagues about me, which her dad does nothing but research on cancer and took my info so that she could give to her dad for him to call me. I was so amazed myself, but I had to reflect back to why I was really there. That’s where GOD needed me to be at that very moment to do and get what he needed me too. When I say that I had a blast with Mrs. Mushiya and her crew from “THE DAMN SALON”  6780 Roswell Rd Ne. Atlanta, Ga, please believe me, I even won me a great gift! The Damn Salon specializes in ALL natural hair. She said “Who the hell says that natural hair has to be boring!!?” She believes that “BEAUTY” comes in many colors and shades no matter if they have kinky or straight hair. She also loves herself and want to teach more people to do the same. “Who cares what people think of you?” is what she always says. Can you imagine her face when she says that!? Yeah, I know right lol. You can find THE DAMN SALON in a more than just a few places like Atlanta, GA, Washington, DC, Charlotte, NC, New York, Houston, TX, and Montreal. You can also order the hair extensions from her brand called RUNWAY CURLS on her website www.thedamnsalon.com and any other info that you may want to know about this Phenomenal Woman. I’m so glad and honored that I had the pleasure meeting her!! My thoughts of the day!

Disney star Raven Goodwin was ordered out of the Waffle House in Atlanta Saturday night after she got into a fight with another customer over her choice of table.

The 22-year-old “Good Luck Charlie” star was sitting at a table waiting for friends, but it looked like the people at the table next to her were about to leave so she asked to be moved there.

The people at the other table lingered, which apparently angered Raven.

TMZ learned that Raven ended up in the bathroom arguing with a woman who had been sitting at the desired table.

The Waffle House staff sprung into action, jumping the counter and ordering both women to leave.

Three 6 Mafia’s Crunchy Black Pleads Guilty To Meth Possession

Thursday, April 30th, 2015

Former Three 6 Mafia rapper Crunchy Black will have plenty of time to study the difference between cocaine and meth — he’s gonna spend the next 7 months in jail for his Vegas drug bust.

CB was in court Wednesday and pled guilty to misdemeanor drug possession. TMZ broke the story … Crunchy was arrested earlier this month for meth.
Crunch had the worst defense we’ve heard in a while. According to the police report, when an officer found the drugs on Crunchy … he replied, “Oh damn. I was trying to buy that powder, not meth.”

The Oscar winner got 30 days for the drugs, but also had 6 months to serve for a domestic violence case he’d skipped out on — so, he’ll do the time consecutively.
