IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What city and state are you from?
CEEB: I am from Fredericton New Brunswick, Canada .I was born in Oromocto New Brunswick and raised in Montreal. I have been living in New Brunswick for the last thirteen years and it’s awesome. As a young man, rapping came naturally to me. At first it was just for fun. My friends and family told me I was pretty good at it so I decided to try my luck at it by writing songs and making beats. It turns out they were right. I have since released two albums. One most recently called “Still Down” through B.M.E Canada and a previous release called “It’s About Time” independently. “It’s About Time” sold out. I have played everywhere from the Olympic stadium in Montreal to the harvest jazz and blues festival in Fredericton.I have 21 videos on Youtube. I will try to put Fredericton on the world’s stage with my music.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What is your music background?
CEEB: I play a few different genres of music but mostly hip-hop. I also play in a live Reggae band named Dub Antenna, and a live hip-hop band called Socially Exceptable.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Why do you want to record and release your own music?
CEEB: It’s a must. I believe as an artist you should spread your music. I believe we artists must share our message with everybody because in reality, there’s a message for everyone. I want to record and release my own music because that’s what I have been placed on this Earth to do.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are your songs about?
CEEB: My music is a blend of hype tracks to real stories. My music is about the struggle, and I like to tell stories. My music showcases my rhyming skills. I like to think my songs are about the better things in life, but they are merely about the reality I am living right now.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Who is your fan base directed towards?
CEEB: My fan base consists of any one from 20 to 40 years of age. I rarely swear or curse in my tunes so that demographic might be bigger.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Who are your musical influences?
CEEB: I am currently surrounded by tons of musicians, but I feel like it’s the moments I spend with like minded emcees and all the peeps from BME studios Canada which I am currently apart of. Those are my musical influences. I am also inspired and influenced by the tons of people who go through hard times and still come out shining
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: How would you describe your music to people?
CEEB: My music is real life music. Rarely will I mention drugs, fast women, cars, and bling. There are more important things to cover. We are prophets of the struggle and must deliver accordingly.There are kids and young teens who listen to my songs, and I believe I must be a teacher and a leader for them to follow. I believe that sometimes we are role models without even really knowing we are. So I have to shed a better lite.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What makes you stand out from other artists?
CEEB: Well I am the most original artist you’ll ever see. I write all of my own tunes and can freestyle better than anyone anywhere. My live show is second to none, plus I engage more with the audience I strive to deliver the best possible experience ever when it comes to my songs. That’s whether I’m in the booth or on stage.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are some upcoming projects you are currently working on?
CEEB: Well I’m currently working on finalizing the two albums I have been writing and have since recorded. I am also waiting for a television series I play in called “Le Clan”(its kind of bilingual) to come out. It debuts September of this year on CBC and radio Canada.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
CEEB: I wish to be a household name, and I intend to work at it until it has come to fruition no matter how long it takes. In ten years I see my self still playing
music live or otherwise . I definitely still want to be a rapper who is relevant and on time.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: How can your fans access your music and contact you?
CEEB: Well they can Google me Facebook me, come to a live show, and I have an album on ITunes called “Ceeb Still Down.” The album has twelve original tracks of banging hip-hop. You can holla at BME studios Canada as well. Either way, you’ll get me.
