Interview

B2D Talks Bellavino Billionaires Music Group, New Music, & The Business Side Of The Industry

Published

on

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!

Dupré Kelly @DoItAll from the Legendary Platinum Hip-Hop Selling Group Lords of the Underground Announces His Candidacy for Newark City Council

Published

on

Dupré “Doitall” Kelly is now an official candidate on the ballot  for the upcoming May 8, 2018 in Newark, NJ after turning in over 2,000 petitions.

Throughout his life, Dupré Kelly has always had a passion for the City of Newark and a drive to serve his community. In 1994, Mayor of Newark Sharpe James, honored his group with their very own Lords of The Underground Day making September 28th an annual holiday. Whether through his music, his fraternity Alpha Phi Alpha, business endeavors or his not for profit organization Dupré serves his community in many capacities. He is co-founder of 211 Community Impact a not-for-profit 501c3 company in Newark, NJ. 211 Community Impact helps through its grassroots programs addressing literacy, homelessness, mental health and wellness, education, gun violence and currently runs many youth activities. Furthermore, he is Co-CEO of 211 Media Group, a company that specializes in all aspects of media, television and film production as well as event planning and consulting. When elected Du-Kelly will make history as the first Platinum selling Hip-Hop artist to hold public office.

As Councilman at Large Dupré Kelly wants to address several issues:

  • Lack of funding for Youth Programming and Summer Jobs. In order to secure a better tomorrow for us all, we must make greater investments in our youth today. This year over 5,000 Newark youth applied to the Mayor’s summer youth program. Because of funding constraints the City was only able to roughly employ 2,500 students. By expanding private investment by $2 million for the Mayor’s Summer Youth Employment Program we can truly leave no child behind.
  • Initiate Greater Activities through Arts & Culture. It is through Dupré Kelly’s extensive artistic experience he believes that the arts drive creativity and creativity spurs jobs creation. The latest data from the Arts and Cultural Production Satellite Account ( A collaboration of the National Endowment for the Arts and the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA))  reveals that the arts and cultural sector contributed $729.6 billion or 4.2 percent to the U.S. economy that year. Between 1998 and 2014, the contribution of arts and culture to the nation’s gross domestic product grew by 35.1 percent. Locally, in 2016 Newark’s Arts and Culture Industry generated $178.3 million annually, providing residents income of $133.7M and supporting 4,963 jobs.
  • Lack of Civic Engagement (Neighborhood Inclusion).  We must begin to move the wards out of their individual cultural silos. Encourage a new philosophy on the City Council to move away with protectionist attitudes and work together to serve the interest of the entire city. Doitall will work with stakeholders to make sure the neighborhoods are included in our current economic renaissance. Doitall will create a massive ward by ward initiative encouraging our seniors to volunteer in mentoring and assisting our youth through our city programs.


Dupré Kelly intends to move beyond campaign lines to move the city forward through arts & culture. Newark needs new energy on the City Council.  For media please contact Cordelia Donovan at iam@cordeliadonovaninc.com or call (646)678‑6048 and for campaign inquiries please contact campaign manager Monico Cruz at monicodoitallfornewark@gmail.com or call (973)536‑3729.
