You see the logo...heard the name...and probably wondered about "Balance Coalition." This is basically my new record label -- which is indie label number 2 for me. When I started releasing my own projects, MCEO Records was my very first label back in 2005. Essentially, I've released all of my projects independently (with the exception of Floe Almighty). So today with Balance Coalition Music Group, I wanted to start a new music company with a broader vision -- which is to help bring BALANCE to the music game. As I had mentioned in my bio, I listened to a wide variety of hip-hop artists from everywhere. As long as it was dope, I supported it. So releasing new Floe material under my new label is guaranteed, but the broader vision is to work with like-minded artists from all over the world. This is the "coalition" that I want to contribute and build with great Emcees, Beatmakers, Producers, Poets, and Visionaries.
If there's one thing I've learned over the years is that good music will stand the test of time. There are a million artists that want to hit superstardom and think they've failed if they don't hit the right "numbers" -- whether it be record sales, likes, followers, etc. But that's not the goal of a true artist. This music game in my view is not about competing against one another for the sake of being the most popular, but more about putting Art in the form of good music out into the world. We, especially as independent artists, have a ton of power that we should express -- and I want to play my part in proving the potential we truly have.
Balance Coalition Music Group, LLC...also known as BALCO Music Group....stay tuned.
