B2D Talks Bellavino Billionaires Music Group, New Music, & The Business Side Of The Industry
Originally from Colorado and now residing in Austin, Artist B2D credits the success of his music to the demons of society that haunt him. Fans tune in to this exclusive interview and get up and close with B2D.
MJ: Thank you for taking time away from the mic for this interview, your time is appreciated. For those who aren’t familiar with you as an artist, tell us who you are.
B2D: My Name is B2D which stands for Born 2 Die, and I’m an artist & CEO of my record Label Bellavino Billionaires Music Group, which I just established a little over a Year Ago. I’m very versatile as an artist and feel like I shine most in my music when I share my pain. I love art in all forms, but I never been to good with a paint brush, so what I can paint with words is way above standard.
MJ: When did music become a major part of your life? Was it teenage years or even younger? Also tell us when you realized music was no longer a hobby or a passion.
B2D: I was a fan of music and it played a major role in my life before I could even talk. As a I use to bob my head or dance to music all the time, the vibe was just there. I was always passionate about music and I would release music for free all the time. I never took a look at it like a business. But once I started to take my music seriously and wanted to make a living from it, best believe I made a lot of mistakes. I work very closely with a childhood friend that’s very successful in the music industry who is guiding and managing my career. A year from now life for me and my team will be very different on the positive end! Blood, sweat, and tears, we know we have to put everything we have into our dream or we won’t get anything out of it, or see any results.
MJ: You take pride in steering away from “fake rappers who rap about situations they never been through”. Why do you think that has become so trendy lately? What specifically about your music separates you from those rappers?
B2D: Music is music. I really dislike rappers who talk like their Tony Montana flipping kilos and killing whoever they have beef with or make it big from false stories in their raps. The twist to all of this nonsense is real street cats, the young ones more so feel like they really have to prove that they are real to the world and they will go rob somebody or lay somebody down then get on a track and brag about! It’s not smart and doesn’t make any sense business or music wise. The trend right now is a catchy hook and an auto tune verse. People use to steal the Migos delivery but now rappers will go with whatever single is hot at the moment and steal that delivery whether it’s Drake or 69 Kat, or whoever. What separates me or my music from other artists is simply me! I’m not trying to be anybody else. When it’s time to record music I put all of me on the records and I give fans the real me and my real life. I don’t front or lie on my tracks to look cook or gain fans.
MJ: It takes a real emcee to share their personal life, mistakes, encounters with the law, running the streets, etc. with the world and fans! In the world we live in today the media and press tend to shy away from artists who speak upon “their past of hard knocks”. How do you feel about that?
B2D: I don’t agree with that I feel like they always bring up the past and they never talk about the positive changes they have made in their life.
MJ: Besides being an Artist you are also in the process of building your own Record Label. Gives us some insight on the label, and the new compilation out now under that label.
B2D: Building a label is a lot of hard work. I’m constantly grinding and making sure that both myself and artists are getting the most effective exposure. The hardest part is dealing with some artists. Some artists think they deserve a lot of money once their album or single drops. Or they think they know everything when they haven’t been signed in the past. A lot of artists lack the knowledge of the business side of music and that is one my goals with the label. I work diligently to educate artists… I will say this though, the new compilation has me and a few of my artists on going hard from beginning to end. Since the release we have been receiving a tremendous amount of positive feedback. We are polishing up on another compilation that will be released in a couple of months.
MJ: You have collaborated with some major artists. Do you have a top 3 of other artists you would like to share the stage or studio with?
B2D: The top three artists I would like to collaborate with in the studio is NbA Young Boy, Icewear Vezzo, and Moneybagg Yo.
MJ: B2D wears many hats! Tell us about the clothing line and the winery.
B2D: I started making wine nine years ago. I was taught by a retired cook on a cruise ship. I titled the wine Bellavino and I distribute it through events, fashion shows, and online at www.BellavinoBillionaires.com. Bellavino Billionaire Apparel is also available at shows and events. Right now no other hats are getting put on until the Label Bellavino Billionaires Music Group has a level of skyrocket success!
MJ: With so much on your plate as a true entrepreneur has, what is your secret to balance, especially with family?
B2D: Balance comes from making a schedule and making sure you make time for what’s important every week.
MJ: Who are some people who have an influence on your life and career?
B2D: 2pac inspired me to rap and Adrain Swish inspired me to turn my passion of music into a business. Seeing someone else come up doing what I love to do inspires me, haters and non-believers inspire me, and most importantly my daughter inspires me!
MJ: What’s up next for B2D?
B2D: More music and acting.
MJ: As we wrap up is there anything else you want the world to know about yourself and your label?
B2D: Roll up some weed or whatever it is you might do and prepare yourself for the show Bellavino Billionaires Music Group is about to give you!

Interview | Legendary Tazmania Talks New Music, Hip Hop Icons, & What’s Next
Legendary Tazmania has been deep rooted in the music scene dating back to his teenage years. He can recall the late legend Easy-E bringing him to his very first concert which of MC Breed and DJ Quick. Born and raised on the south side of Chicago, he was up rooted at age thirteen to Los Angeles where music forever changed his life. He signed his first record deal in 1992 and released hit after hit. As he enhanced his craft and progressed in his career, he had the opportunity to tour the globe with major artists Mike Jones, Beat Nuts, Dilated Peoples, Eve, and more. To date he holds a lengthy catalog of music and hasn’t stopped yet.
” I believe in the words that Guru once told me, “keep spitting because you are what they need”
MJ: Thank you for taking time away from creating music for this interview. Let’s take it back to your younger years. Do you think your career would have taken a different direction if you and your family didn’t move to Los Angeles?
Taz: Thank you for having me, and yes, it definitely would have been different. I wouldn’t have met the people that actually made me love Hip-Hop like Skoolz, who let me have my first speaking role on a song. Also Yomo and Markel who are Ruthless Records artists and their album “Burn Old Glory”, and I can’t leave out my relationship with the Bell’s of New Edition or how the Kinky Boys helped me to be original in my approach when it comes to creating music.
MJ: Talk about that concert that Easy-E took you to. As a young by that must have been an adrenaline rush to experience.
Taz: It was I was on top of the world! To see everything up close was life changing, even though DJ Quick thought we were Crips because we were in blue…but Eazy smoothed it over.
MJ: In 1992 you released your first project “Come Say Hi to The Bad Guy”. It can be mind-blowing to look back at your very first single or project. What would you say to that young Taz?
Taz: I would say don’t be so full of yourself, work hard and party later.
MJ: From that you started your own rap group and label, which became a staple for Cali Hip Hop, and opened up some major doors for you. Share some of that with us.
Taz: Yeah being part of a group was cool it give me a chance to see other point of views and to remain humble in the face of so many egos. It also gave me the opportunity to meet a wide range of artists such as Outcast, Luda, and others. It gives you a sense of professionalism you need to have to live up to.
MJ: You’ve shared the stage with a handful of major artists and key players in the industry. What stands out the most from those experiences?
Taz: I would say my chance meeting with Jay-Z in Stockholm along with Mr. Hayes, may he rest in peace, he was like a mentor for a short time. Meeting Warren G and his uncle Ron G was also life changing when they saw me perform overseas and let me know I had worth in the music scene.
MJ: Let’s bring fans up to speed now. You’ve released a lengthy catalog of music throughout recent years. Talk about your style and flow and how as an artist you have progressed and evolved from each project.
Taz: I have always looked at this business as an ever-changing one, and as an artist you must evolve with the times. My flow is one of a kind, and smoothed out with a conscious realism. I am a product of my environment with a world-wide sense of my people and the habitat we live. But sometimes I like to make light of those differences.
MJ: What’s hot right now with Taz? Talk about your latest single “Flash Flood”. Also give us some inside scoop on upcoming projects or collaborations.
Taz: Yeah it’s coming out later this month. It was produced by Synthetic, who made a fire track about getting rich quick dreams we all have at some point. The rest you will have to wait until it’s released, can’t give it all away…My latest single “Vinus” is the sh*t! It’s a shout out to all women of the world and how in their grace and beauty have made me feel that there’s always an unspoken meaning to someone special.
MJ: When it comes to influences, whether it be musically or personally, who do you credit?
Taz: Wow that’s a hard one. I actually try to stay away from anyone else’s style, but some think I’m similar to T.I. But I think there is no other to credit for my style.
MJ: As we wrap up is there anything else you want the world to know about Taz?
Taz: Yeah, no one will give a better live performance than Taz. Be on the lookout for my new album “Paper Cuts”, I promise I will do everything in my power to make it groundbreaking for my fans!
