Antoine The Icon’s Journey to Becoming A Music Icon And How It Influenced His Style

Published

on

Oftentimes, our life experiences influence a great deal of who we are today. It can be seen in the way we interact with others, face challenges, as well as our work ethics. For artists, the things they’ve gone through personally and professionally can serve as inspiration for their music and their style. 

The same can be said for Antoine The Icon, a 27-year-old rapper, performer, producer, and recording artist. In his journey to becoming an artist that can do it all, he has met with trials and tribulations along the way. 

Due to the many struggles that he faced in life and as an artist, Antoine has since grown over the years in terms of his character and drive. Now, he boasts of a unique flow and sense of creativity. 

Expressing Himself Through Music 

Antoine started his career in music when he was 12-years-old by freestyling and battle rapping against people in high school. Before he knew it, he got hooked on the idea of learning more about music and what he could if he used it just right. 

In finding out what he can about music and how he can best wield his talents, Antoine has developed his style in a way that not only a certain group of people can relate with, but people of mixed cultures can as well. 

His music allows them to understand how Antoine feels about the different topics in the world, life, and his passion for his craft. 

A Jack of All Trades 

Having found his rhythm and style as an artist, Antoine has amassed over 300,000 streams on Spotify and has been able to perform in New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and many other locations. He even had the opportunity to perform in various radio stations. 

But despite all this, Antoine only wishes to be the artist who can do it all. 

“I would want to be perceived as not a GOAT (Greatest Of All Time), not a legend. Just The Icon,” Antoine said. 

At the moment, Antoine is working on two different projects for this year: “The Weekend in Orlando” and “The Process.”

“My key goal is to gain more fans and more streams, radio plays, album purchases, and more interviews,” he said. 

The Key is to Never Settle 

When asked about what he learned so far on his journey to success, Antoine said: 

“I learned that work ethic and never settling goes a long way. Not to forget networking is a major key. You have to trust the process. Keep at it, take everything you’ve been through, and put it in music. People will try you and take advantage of you. Never quit because you never know what tomorrow has in store for you.”

CeCe’s Recent Work

Cece began her career as a talent manager, eventually moving into production because she knows how tough it can be for outsiders to get into the business and see the genuine potential for growth at the micro-scale. Her album brought together up-and-coming musicians and well-known artists with a larger target audience on the same platform. This album provided her with the opportunity to encourage up-and-coming artists to do their finest work, which could compete with a more known artist. Her album and tracklist were recently released, and the lineup is incredible. There will be performances by some of our favorite American artists, such as yungtory and K camp, as well as Afrobeat stars like Bella Shmurda, Bad Boy Timz Ayo Jay, and others, as well as some of the country’s most exciting up-and-comers.

“NY Love Story,” her latest song, is out now.

CeCe teamed up with a number of New York City-based organizations and producers to bring you a heartfelt message about how millennials’ romantic desires could change in 2020. As you might be aware, love may have a positive or negative impact; if you live in New York City, you are also aware of the many challenges that relationships face.

Amber Simone, Vino, and Capella Grey are featured on the new single “A NY Love Story.”

“Everything I Know,” a new single featuring Dermo and K Camp, is out now.

The album is a heartfelt, no-holds-barred declaration of passion for anyone unique. A warm, welcoming rhythm complements the development, making it ideal for a romantic weekend between two people. Dremo sets the tone for the rest of the album with his silky melodic vocal delivery, alternating between pidgin English and Yoruba. With his seductive vocals and a short tale about finding the love of his life, K Camp follows suit. I never expected to see these two collaborate on a project, but their personalities are so complimentary.

CeCe’s track “All I Need” is taken from her upcoming album, including Dremo and K Camp. The Bronx native has also founded her talent management firm, Ataria Inc, and is set to release her official debut album in the near future.

CeCe’s Background

This executive producer/singer, who was born in Nigeria and raised in New York City, is one of the music industry’s newest entrants. On the other hand, CeCe is no stranger to the music world, having made a name for herself for her Ataria NYC clothing line and Afrobeat-infused fashion shows.

Her experience as a recording promoter, talent manager, retail magnate, and retailer allows her to follow in the footprints of these legendary forefathers.

How DmtDream Expresses His Psychedelic World Through Music

Published

on

There are instances when the physical world becomes too much to handle. As a result, many of us try to find refuge in something intangible like the spiritual or mental to give us respite from the daily trappings of life. 

For rapper and influencer DmtDream, psychedelics became his escape from the mundane. It also serves as a heavy influence on his music. 

As a conscious artist, DmtDream is also known as Dmt, Lsd, Dosed, and Dream. He grew up on the outskirts of Flint, Michigan in her late teens. After high school, he moved to the East Side where he dove into psychedelics and music. 

DmtDreamused music to get through some of the hardest moments in his life, and with the help of psychedelics, he was also able to see a better picture of how he wanted to live out his life. 

“Trying to show the good and positive sides of psychedelic and how they can teach you how to understand yourself so you can help the ones around elevate their level of thinking, movements, and overall vibrational patterns,” he said. 

Currently, the psychedelic artist has been recognized by publications Elevator, Apple News, and Medium. He’s also a Google verified artist. He also amassed a total of 15,000 listeners on Apple Music, 25,000 on Spotify, and 11,500 on YouTube. 

Getting Involved In The Community

Even though DmtDream is known for his music, he prefers to be recognized as an influencer who leaves a positive mark in his community. 

His most recent project is more of a medical mission than a musical journey. He was part of a medical takeback that they do once a year in Flint where people like DmtDream take expired medicine to be disposed of properly and safely to keep these dangerous drugs from getting in the hands of the youth.

This way, not only does DmtDream promote the safe use of pharmaceuticals, but he also keeps the younger generation from abusing said substances which could lead to adverse effects. 

Being His Genuine Self 

Throughout his career in music and as an influencer, DmtDream realized that he should stick to his authentic self rather than try to be someone he’s not. 

By being true to himself, the psychedelic artist believes that he can best fight for what he truly believes in and be able to start the change that he wants to see in his community. 

Plus, authenticity, according to DmtDream, can get anyone farther in the music industry since people can connect as well as relate to artists who are to their feelings and beliefs.
