A rapid rise to prominence from a new wave of emerging Southern urban artists has seen rapper and producer Ande Bishop make serious moves since his first solo track release “50 Centences” in only January of this year
A further string of single and buzz track launches leading into the Spring culminated in his own American Roulette enterprise signing a partnership deal with expanding US label Seven 13 Entertainment, marked by the release of his introductory EP “Ocean$” on 19th May.
It’s been a remarkable few months for the young artist, and recently journalist Ethan Everton spoke with him for the UK’s multi genre online magazine DataTransmission.
In this feature, the pair discuss that first release “50 Centences” premiered by The Source and the impact it made, including with G Unit themselves. He then speaks about the tie up with Seven 13 Entertainment, how that came about and his production work with stablemate Londn Blue last year on his EP “False Hope”.
They then turn their attention to the new EP, and the reasons behind why he didn’t handle any of the production himself, preferring to hand over to others on the American Roulette roster together with Taylor $upreme, and the influence The Game had in some of the concepts.
While also touching upon his approach to production, the feature concludes by outlining his plans for the next 12 months and the obstacles he’s overcome to achieve his level of progress.
