We linked up with 21 Savage’s official DJ, Marc B, for our first interview of 2020. Marc B is one of the most well known DJs in the Atlanta hip hop scene and has been expanding his brand and network as a producer by dropping songs and compilation albums with up & coming rappers like Young Mal, Doe Boy, SG Tip & more.
We talked a lot about the new wave of producers taking the initiative to drop songs on their own own Spotify and Apple Music profiles to have more control over their careers instead of just waiting on getting placements and selling beats.
We also talked why music streaming and Spotify playlist and artists focusing on how to get on Spotify playlists really destroyed the careers and income streams of the average mixtape DJ and in Atlanta it went one step further when the city banned 18 & up clubs making it near impossible for DJ’s to break music from up & coming rappers. This made it 100% important to focus on the internet and social media marketing for music promotion.
The interview gets wrapped up by discussing new years resolutions and why it is hard to stick to them unless you make LIFESTYLE CHANGES!
