For a chosen few, music is written in the book of life. It is personal and it is palpable. For Houston, Texas based artist Breadman, it is both. Originally known by his childhood name “Lil West”, Houston, Texas rapper Jermaine Deshan “Breadman” West is a rising star. For an entertainer to become successful, particularly a rapper, he must be innovative and have endless hustle – two characteristics that have never been lost on Breadman.

Mississippi artist Reapa Ranks speaks with This Is 50 about his craft & more

As seen on This Is 50

 

Somewhere deep in the heart of Jefferson Davis County, Mississippi – Prentiss to be exact – there lies an unmined diamond who goes by the name of Reapa Ranks. And this gem is a breath of fresh air who vows to never forget where he came from – something many entertainers can’t claim in this day and age.

 This young, up and coming rapper is putting in untold hours and a whole lot of energy into his entertainment career. His life has been a busy one recently – and it’s about to get a whole lot busier, given his plans for distributing his music around the globe. He has several new projects on deck, so it’s going to be a cold winter, to say the least!

Whether it’s the influence from his hard working father or just the hustle that being from The Sipp brings with it, Reapa Ranks is ready to climb that ladder to super stardom and he is more than capable of putting his Corporate Raiders Ent label on the map.

From “I Made It” to “Ring the Alarm” and “Ride or Die”, Reapa Ranks understands the importance of being tenacious and having a solid team to push a polished product out to the world.
We caught up with Reapa Ranks recently and here’s what he had to say:

Tell us a little about yourself.

REAPA RANKS: My name is Reapa Ranks. I’m from Prentiss Mississippi a/k/a “Lil Pakistan”. I’m 23 years old and currently travel back and forth from my hometown of Prentiss, Mississippi to the streets of Miami, Florida – putting in work, shooting videos and networking trying to get my music in different parts of the world.

Did growing up in Mississippi have any effect on your grind and hustle? How did it help to form your art?

REAPA RANKS: Well, I wouldn’t say it had an effect on my grind because round here it’s like we’re born with the hustle and grind for something. It’s up to you to find out what you have a passion and drive for and give dat sh*t 100% everyday. Mine just happened to be music. Being from Prentiss, Mississippi and Jefferson County period, helped form my art because it’s like …. The towns are tiny as hell, but I love em. Everything else is country parts. We call it backroads. Basically, I feel like being from The Sipp, we have to dig deeper than a lot of other guys in da game because they’re doing what they see the next man doing, saying, wearing, etc. Somebody to look up to, look like, sound like – all that, while in The Sipp the next man is not rapping around here. They’re probably trapping. There aren’t really many artists to look up to around here. You just have to dig deep into yourself, take in the happenings of your environment and say something to let the people know you feel em and know what they’re going through, but at the same time, letting them know you respect their struggle and hustle – and that I see what’s going on and will never forget where I came from.

To date, what has been your favorite project you’ve worked on?

REAPA RANKS: All my projects are my favorites, even the ones from “Dat Crew” days when I was in a group with my partners. I mean, it’s me and I love me some me, but I am my biggest critic. I’d have to say that my favorite project is my debut solo mixtape, “Nu No Limit”, simply because I had to come up with everything on my own. It’s entirely me and to be honest, I didn’t think I could do it. But my team/family kept me on my toes and I have gotten great responses from that mixtape and made many new fans. Shoutout to da OOG4ng and everybody rocking with Reapa Ranks. Y’all are the sh*t, on my Mama!

If there were 3 producers and 3 major artists you could work with, who would those be and why?

REAPA RANKS: Aww man, if I could work with 3 major artists and 3 major producers of my choice, I’d have to say #1 would be Young Dolph because he’s making major moves in da industry without a deal. Not saying that I wouldn’t sign with anyone (laughs), but to most music artists these days, making it to the big screen independently is the American Dream and my n**** Dolph living it. #2 would be Future simply because every time you hear Future on a track, he’s being 1000% Future Hendrix. He’s 1 of 1 and in 2017, that is rare. Last but not least #3, Offset! Offset just takes sh*t to another level. From the time he comes on a verse or hook, the club is going crazy. My 3 producers would be Metro Boomin, Sonny Digital and TroddiBeatzBoomin. I say Metro Boomin and Sonny Digital because they’re 2 producers that have been leading the industry for some time. I say TroddiBeatzBooming because my guy been making beats for me since the beginning when we were piled in a room with no A/C, grinding doing what it takes to make it.

What future endeavors are you currently working on?

REAPA RANKS: I’m currently working on new music, of course. I actually have a few visual ideas in mind that I can’t wait to shoot, along with shows and showcases. So I guess I can say everything is on the up and up. Slowly but surely, it’s time for The Sipp to get some recognition!

The entertainment world is such a wide open field right now, especially for music artists. Are there other avenues you’re currently exploring? If so, what are those? (acting, etc.?)

REAPA RANKS: I’d have to say music because everybody’s doing music these days, mostly rap. It’s like you don’t even have to make sense anymore. If it sounds good, you’re on. I’m out here still trying to have substance in my music. I’m not trying to be one of the guys never heard of again after a 6-month buzz to the world. And no, not really. Honestly, if I were looking to get into any other type of industry, it would have nothing to do with entertainment, know what I’m saying?

Where will we see your career in 5 years?

REAPA RANKS: In 5 years, I look to be in different cities everywhere rocking a stage, selling shirts, CDs, whatever. I’m trying to be all over the place, everywhere you turn you’re seeing and hearing Reapa Ranks from Lil Pakistan – making people get tired of me in the greatest way.

New Orleans artist Cass of America’s interview on This Is 50

As seen on This Is 50

“Sacrifice” is defined as giving up something prized or precious. Meet Cass of America, one of New Orleans (the 9th Ward to be exact), Louisiana’s most valuable players in the music game. He knows what it means to sacrifice time and effort in order to elevate his entertainment career to the next level. His team and he are confident that all of his struggles will soon translate to stellar success – there’s a carefully crafted plan in the works for this special artist. Triumph is imminent.

 

Between Cass of America’s grind and hustle, his Bloodbath moniker and his affiliations with some of the most well-known names in the game, particularly the 0017th imprint, it won’t be long before he takes his place among the superstars of his generation.

Having worked with some of the premiere producers in the Deep South, Cass’ music is not only on a whole other level, but it’s unique and something new altogether. To put it bluntly, he doesn’t sound like anybody else. In an age of artists and labels set on copying one another, Cass is a breath of fresh air – one that’s long been needed in Hip Hop – and one that stands apart from many of his counterparts.

Check out his new interview with One Shot Films.
Watch/Comment/Share and be sure to follow @cassofamerica9 on Instagram so you don’t miss out on anything new, as he’s preparing to drop a whole lot of music before 2017 comes to a close.
