“Just paying attention to what’s going and linking up with people, doing business with people, and paying attention to numbers; always go were the numbers are.”
Check out the interview with Branch Off Records exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: Where did this all start? Tell us about your journey in the entertainment business.
Branch Off Records: In the 90’s Shade Tree Militia was touring up and down the east coast doing big things. But after mishaps Fuji Mobetta was left all alone to carry on the success until Mini Mo Betta and ScoolaScoola stepped off the porch. Once Coot Myeasta came home, they all kept grinding. After a long drought and missed opportunity we’re back better than ever and we’re on a money mission.
What would be your biggest piece of advice for the young kids out there trying to do what you do?
Stay in school and don’t get caught up in the hype. What looks good on the outside ain’t always good on the inside. Stay positive. Educations equals money.
What are some of the hardest challenges and tasks in your position?
Jus everyday life, work all day and half the night. Raising kids. It’s just kinda hard to balance everything out, but it’s all coming together; smooth as silk.
We all know the entertainment business is very tough, but what do you find is the best way to promote and advertise your music?
Just paying attention to what’s going and linking up with people, doing business with people, and paying attention to numbers; always go were the numbers are.
Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans? Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans?
My city is small, but it gets wild. It’s kinda like Mayberry mix with Compton. The fans are the best in the world, there’s a lot of haters but that’s normal everywhere.
Where do you see yourself a year from today?
A year from today I see myself doing music every day and finally getting over the hump into the real money.
Who and what were your biggest inspirations? Who do you look up to in today’s world?
I look up to Floyd Mayweather. He come from the bottom and don’t mind letting people know what TMT is a bout. I’m more humble, but he inspires me. I made lots of money off of him too.
How do you feel about the music coming out today? Do you like it?
It’s okay. I respect it because people are getting paid. Talent wise I think it sucks.
