Recent history tells us that a successful independent artist is a scarce commodity. C-Bo has broken the mold and is laughing all the way to the bank. His current resume reads like the who's-who of Hip-Hop: a true-to-form entrepreneur, owner of all his masters and backlog, and an estimated two million albums sold (all without the help of major label backing or marketing schemes). The Sacramento, CA-based MC is preparing to flood the market, and he is determined to let nothing stand in his way.
His label, West Coast Mafia, is in the final stages of releasing two compilations: "West Coast Mafia: Chopped and Screwed" and "C-Bo Presents: West Side Ryders;" newcomer 151 will be releasing his debut, "Code of Tha Street," and C-Bo himself will be releasing his latest solo banger, "The Mobfather: The Return of The Bald Headed Nut." C-Bo sat down with Allhiphop.com to discuss his disdain for major record labels, how he is changing the game and the lives of his artists, and how he intends on continuing to play by his own rules.
Allhiphop.com: Let's get into it, man. You've got a lot of albums that are dropping in a minute. Talk about them and what this could possibly mean for the independent circuit.
C-Bo: I got my artist 151 coming out June 10th, the "West Side Ryders" and my solo joint "The Mobfather" is coming out in July, you know what I'm saying? My solo joint is sort of different, mature, and still grimy and streetish, you dig?
Allhiphop: I can dig it. Talk about you parting ways with your old label and this new label you have right now.
