Bringing the Gospel through the outlet of rap

Featured artist: B.D.Kold – Bringing the Gospel through the outlet of rap

As part of our ongoing “Rap’s New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist B.D.Kold from Livingston,la to talk about his recent music, his upcoming projects, his career advice and his overall experiences being in the music industry and he did not disappoint…

Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, B.D.Kold! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?

B.D.Kold: I grew up rapping, going in and out jail, trying to always come up with that next big move to become who I wanted to be, it wasn’t until I gave the street life up and learned the precept of the Bible and who God called me to be that my music actually took off

The best advice I was given as an artist, was when I was 17, my big homie lil witness, told me to always pray and ask God what he wanted your verse to be, this was years befor I was walking with God but I started doing that, and now days my craft is solely based upon that.

The advice I would give to another artist : always do what your spirit says, always pray, never comprimise, and work your butt off


What about concerts? Do you play live?

I haven’t have much stage time in my new stance as an artist, but in due time those things will come. I would love to perform , right now I’m still in the building stages, I started this in January.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

The king brought me back, like lazurus, I guess, that resurrected life, that lazurus effect


What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

I put out an ep called walking in faith on 3-17-18 I put out an ep called heart condition on 7-16-18 im wrapping up a free to download mixtape called distribution of Hope set to drop 12-18-18, will have another ep between now and feb, entiitled steeet Gospel, and begin working on my Lp son of the King by March of 19

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

I’m not against signing a contract, I think that being able to provide for your family and do what your called to do, or enjoy to do, what your passion is, is an amazing thing, but I would have to be dealing with someone who seen my vision and gave me creative freedom and control, never would I comprimise my message

Any last words?

I want to give a shout out to god without him none of this would be possible, my parents and close family, because I put them through it when I was coming up, my people that always stayed down no matter what, and to anyone and everyone who wants to be better in life, God has a plan for you, he created you with a purpose in mind, all you have to do is ask him to allow you to be who he had in mind when he created you

Where can people follow you to stay up-to-date?
