The Hustle: Rod McCoy (@AHECEO) Talks Audible Hustle and #TheSweatShop (Video)

PART_1435012051298_IMG_20150507_160619

Rod McCoy hopes that Audible Hustle can help give more power back to the artist. The former military man started his company with the aspirations to nurture new talent and empower artist.

McCoy spoke with Digiwaxx about his new imprint, what he looks for when it comes to talent and, The Sweat Shop

Digiwaxx: Explain to us how you got into music?

Rod McCoy – I got into music initially through church where I played the drums and also led the children’s choir from time to time. I got into rapping one day after basketball practice while in the military though. One of my teammates had an open verse on a track – I hopped on it and that was it! I also wrote poetry and short stories in my youth which made the transition fairly easy once I started to fuck with the raps.

Digiwaxx: How did your new love of rap turn into a business for you?

Rod McCoy: Listening to the constant barrage of garbage that’s played on the radio today is what convinced me that I could make music. I wanna make it a career because I just love it. If I could make $35,000/yr off music, that’d be a great start! Although it’s substantially less than I make right now, it would make me happy because I’d be doing exactly what I think about and dream about every day.

Digiwaxx: Is that how Audible Hustle kicked-off?

Rod McCoy: Audible Hustle kicked off early in 2010 shortly after I started rapping. Initially starting with fellow Air Force veterans, the brand began to virtually expand thanks to supporters on social media. What started off as a clique has grown into a legitimate indie start-up label and it’s totally due to the dedication, drive and comraderie that we’ve built over the past 5 years.

Digiwaxx: So far, what has your experience been running a label?

Rod McCoy: The advantages of running the label is the control that we have over our craft and product. There’s no one outside the camp the we must gain approval from. We can go in whatever direction we choose for everything we do – from digital design, to audio engineer(s), to performance opportunities, etc. Now, with that being said, there’s defintely some disadvatages as one would expect. The biggest of which would be the lack of financial support. To progress and get anywhere in the industry, it takes money! Money for promotion, money for engineering, money for public relations, money for instrumentals, blah, blah, blah. Another “disadvantage” would be the fact there you have to learn everything from scratch. There’s no one holding your hand telling you what steps to take in order to accomplish your goals. I really think this (lack of guidance) evolves into a huge advantage in the long run though.

Digiwaxx: What do you look for when it comes to looking for talent?

Rod McCoy: When going through the initial recruitment phase I looked for artists that took pride in their lyrics first and foremost but another important factor was the initiative that I saw within the artists prior to approaching them. Nobody likes to baby sit and doing this grind, I have zero intent on micro managing another grown ass man (or woman). I paid close attention to the way the music from these artists made me feel too.

Digiwaxx: So, what is The Sweat Shop?

Rod McCoy: The Sweat Shop will serve as the introduction of Audible Hustle to the city of Atlanta. We’re bringing in indie artists from Alabama, Florida, Oregon, and Vermont to perform alongside emerging indies from the ATL. We reached out to artists who we see and KNOW are out here working on the indie grind. The foresight of all of us, in the same venue working our asses off is what inspired “The Sweat Shop”. Shit, we getting pennies on the dollar for our craft just like actual sweat shop workers too though.

We got Michael Aristotle rocking with us – one of the dopest in Atlanta according to Complex Mag; The Winning Team who has multiple dope artists and represent the golden age of southern music; Phresh Ali – this nigga reminds me of Big Boi for some reason. Either way, dude goes in with his performances! Jazzmine Janis, a fellow Alabama native and possibly one of the dopest indie singers I’ve heard on any level and my guy Big Lo who spits lyrics almost effortlessly over boom bap production, similar to some Wu-Tang shit. We have a few other dope acts as well. Whatever you need we gone have it there at The Music Room on June 27th.

Digiwaxx: What can fans expect when they come to the show?

Rod McCoy:  If they show up before 7PM they can expect free baked goods! In regards to the atmosphere and such – expect chill vibes, expect good story-telling, expect peace, expect love, expect being introduced to numerous artist who genuinely love hip-hop and the freedom of expression, expect th best free event of the summer!
