Sidney Breedlove on “Roll It Up when I’m Finished”
Directed by Diamond Visionz “If you don’t use your blessings, god will take them from you” is my favorite line from the song.
The song depicts the manifestations and positive visions from the thoughts, trials, and tribulations of Sidney Breedlove.
The honest and raw talent was inspired by Rap icons like Tupac Shakur, Wiz Khalifa and Ludacris, as well as his family. He especially credits his mother—who taught him to always be honest and true to himself. Motivated by love for his little brother, Sidney has a singular vision for his art: “Breed An Enternity” which means to inspire a culture of personal growth and to help one another. He dreams of one day collaborating with one of his favorite artists Andre 3000 in pursuit of this mission.
Atlanta based hip hop artist Sidney Breedlove is no stranger to perfecting his craft. Having recently taken a public hiatus to craft over 100 original tracks, it’s safe to say that Sidney Breedlove understands the grind.
Sidney recently unveiled a Marko Visuals directed visual for his latest single “T.I.G”. “T.I.G” is a piano-laden straightforward track that finds Sidney Breedlove finding a way to ride the Lex Luger-esque bass while delivering masterful lines. The production on this one leans towards the current trap era that can be heard on other Southern-based acts. What helps to set Sidney Breedlove apart on this one is his lyrical delivery, as well as his introspective yet, relatable lines. Press play above to stream Sidney Breedlove’s “T.I.G”
We are privileged to speak to Sidney today and learn more about his journey while taking a look behind the scenes into his craft.
Hi Sidney & Welcome To Vocal Media!
What strengths do you have that you believe make you a great musician?
Most people tell me I am super ambitious so I would say this is probably my number one strength in regards to being a great musician. I feel this is a great quality to have in this line of work because oftentimes as artists we have nothing to go off of but faith and determination but if you remain ambitious, diligent, and consistent you’ll definitely get to where you’re going!
What accomplishments do you see yourself achieving in the next five to 10 years?
In the next 5 to 10 years I will be an established artist with my own record label and multiple business. I will also have a nonprofit foundation that targets a lot of the issues we see in our urban communities. I will be working out, eating even better, etc. Ultimately I see myself doing a lot of what I’m doing now but on a larger scale.
Do you have any hobbies or interests outside of music?
Honestly, not so much. I’m pretty laid back and chill so I’m normally at the crib if I’m not doing something music related. However I have been known to be a bit of a stoner so I guess you can call that a hobby.
What made you want to become a musician?
As far back as I can remember I’ve always loved music. Almost everyone in my family did music or was a creative in some way. After realizing at a young age that I had more talent than most of my peers I decided to take music seriously and started pursuing a career in it. As cliche as it sounds, my career as a musician chose me.
Do you have any weaknesses that you're actively working to improve on?
Facts! Not taking things to personal. This is a lesson that will help in the music industry but in life as well. Most of the times when people do things to us or we perceive that someone has done something to us, it’s because of something that person is dealing with or going through. It’s rare that someone is deliberately doing something to us individually, specifically to hurt us or mess with us. Most of the time that person is dealing with their own stuff.
Describe your favorite and least favorite part about being a musician.
I would have to say my favorite part of being a musician is the creative process. To this day I genuinely still love creating and consuming music, specifically Hip Hop! My least favorite part of being a musician is feeling like I’m in a time period where how popular someone comes first and the art comes second.
