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
