Tasha and Peter from B100 Radio sat in on a recording session today with studio members Kadarius and Corterio. They talked about everything from copyrights, PRO’s, and the what it takes to get signed to a label.
Kadarius asked what Peter looks for when signing artists.
“To me the most important thing is the artist’s character. Are they a good person? Are they honest, are they hard working? Do they have respect and are they humble?”
We then drew the conclusion that personality traits such as respect can be evident through lyrical content.
Tasha emphasized the importance of college and acquiring knowledge while pursuing a rap career.
“You never know how the future will spin your plans. Your rap skills may translate in to a career as an English teacher, or a producer, or a manager. Give yourself options, and be open to education.”
The duo says they rap about the struggle they face in the neighborhood.
“We like to keep it real,” says Corterio. “I don’t know what other rappers talk about but for me I rap about what I know. I’ve been through hard times. I don’t have to lie in my lyrics.”
Kadarius, Corterio, and Emilio are the members of TOSKD. They aspire to form an entertainment group. They just got a little closer to their goal. Peter and Tasha have offered the group to come be guests on their teen program. Their goal for the next month is to write a song that’s radio ready for airplay during their debut interview on b100.
