... While other artist are seeking musical interest just for the proceeds, at 26, and a native to Greenville, Proceid, gives the name an insightful meaning while bringing a plate full to a starving hip-hop culture.
Originally, from Connecticut, he moved to North Carolina when he was three forming his musical stronghold at an early age. He decided on the name Proceid because he came to the realization, "no matter what condition you find yourself in during life, the only way to "survive" is to continue in a positive manner." His focused demeanor and dedication to his music was written all over his face when I met him handing out his CD's. He was very confident and attractive, I immediately accepted a CD, went home, and popped it in my laptop. "I was impressed with his latest work Royalty, as a music scout and a journalist and it prompted me to write this article," says, Skies The Limit, blog editor, Miss Glo (Head Doctor).
His inspiration for music lies with the escape from all possible limitations and the freedom to feel like he is literally escaping time. In fact, Proceid, is inspired by other artist that do music and it continues to make him want to be a part of the "family of artist that have really put it down when it comes to music." His biggest inspiration is creating hip-hop as an opportunity to be a showcase of his lifestyle.
Proceid, acknowledges that he's been inspired by Lil Wayne because of his extensive music portfolio and labels his creativity as genius. His unique blend of top industry professionals he would like to work with includes Jay Z, Rick Ross, and Erykah Badu.
Surprisingly, he loves the multitude of music in the industry, but wishes there was more originality. Proceid says, "he strives hard to give you a blend of hip-hop which differs from the typical drugs, sex, violence, and money heavily associated with rap. His music inspires you with everyday life and makes it easy for his fans to relate. He has (8) years in the music industry and is trying to build an independent label. However, with the right negotiations, a "signed contract is not off the table," says Proceid. His future projects include a highly anticipated project titled, "The Dance," coming soon.
"When you hustle the whole world is a customer." -Proceid
