Confetti Da Reala Soulja Bad road to underground success
The music of Confetti Da Reala Soulja is loved and loved by hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people. Confetti Da Reala Soulja believes that there is a rich path and a poor path to musical success.
Unlike most of the major artists at a young age given the money and fame of the big companies, Confetti Da Reala Soulja was not so lucky. He didn’t have mega-famous people around him or family members connected to the business.
It was the accomplishment of a long journey, especially without sacrificing his responsibilities as a father. Confetti Da Reala Soulja has two daughters and the first was born when he was only 17 years old. His daughters are among his biggest supporters today.
Confetti Da Reala Soulja has tried a lot of different things on the way to success. He even got his Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) at 22 to drive trucks. At first he didn’t like the prospects of trucking, but driving trucks gave him access to many parts of the country. “It was inexpensive to travel and it was flexible, so I was able to continue to be an artist.”
As a young musical artist Confetti Da Reala Soulja hit the streets with a lot of commotion, drove trucks and made his music, but it divided him and he knew he had to drop something. As an artist he remembered Tupac saying “I’m moving” so he didn’t want to let the truck go, he decided to give up some of the hustle and bustle of the street.
The Dallas underground rap legend has grown into a million mile driver over the years and has built his music network across the country. He has ridden Greyhound for over 300,000 miles, flown from nearly every major airport in the United States and some airports in Canada, as well as trains across the country to broadcast his music.
Although Confetti Da Reala Soulja lived in Dallas, TX, he was a regular in Atlanta, GA, Washington, DC, Chicago, IL and Houston, TX. With the music in the back of the truck, his music has traveled to almost every major city in the United States and many major cities in Canada while spreading internationally on social media.
Confetti Da Reala Soulja wore many hats, walked through many doors and helped others succeed just to return to solidify his legacy as a great artist and performer just before he went blind. “I never imagined this would be how I would build and live my musical dream.
I thought and imagined I would pull over in Benzes, Rolls Royces and limos, but that’s how it happened. He remembers being stranded once in downtown Atlanta, Georgia. “I had to hitchhike with a dwarf-sized person who picked up pallets on the way to the BOB and Rich Boy video shoot.”
On the way to Confetti Da Reala Soulja’s success, he met Big Ro AKA Rolling Smith. Big Ro, Roland Smith, produced music for Ghetto Boys of Rap-a-Lot Records early in his career.
Big Ro called Slim of Cash Money at 2 a.m. and told Confetti Da Reala Soulja that he would tell Slim that he was the next big thing to come. “Big Ro asked me to give them a car for some musical beats. My mind was completely stunned because the price was so high.
Confetti Da Reala Soulja has participated in music videos and recorded, interviewed, promoted and performed all over the country in different parts of the country. Once again, the music in the back of the truck helped him reconnect with an old pal, Hollywood director Mike Taylor.
Thanks to his relationship with Hollywood director Mike Taylor, he was able to sit down and have a few drinks and eat with Kim Hardin, who has been in Hollywood for thirty years and works with many traditional actors.
Traveling like that would be super expensive for an artist who is trying to jump his career and be able to meet people at this rate. It often takes years to build trust and relationships with people and sometimes longer. This does not happen immediately in most cases.
Confetti Da Reala Soulja talks about meeting Baby Bash’s best friend who introduced him to platinum producer K-Lou Beats By The Pound. “I tried to renegotiate a purchase of music and recording for less than what was originally agreed. K-Lou didn’t have it and stopped answering my phone calls. I learned a valuable lesson. Don’t play with K-Lou.
Confetti Da Reala Soulja spoke about some of the cool people he met while traveling as the daughter of the former Utah governor who is an opera singer. “She talked about how she sang opera music in different countries. It reinforced my interest in playing all over the world ”
Confetti Da Reala Soulja spoke about the first time he saw Ice Cube in person at the Ritz-Carlton in Atlanta, Georgia, when he went to see 50 Cent publicist Chanda Cole. “It’s embarrassing when you’re only used to seeing people on TV and then seeing them in person. “
One minute Confetti Da Reala Soulja can be in San Diego and the next minute it can be in Manchester, NH. “I went to musical events like I had a major deal with a record label, but I didn’t.”
When asked how he managed it all between truck transport and his music career. “I had to balance and make sure everyone was happy so that I could continue to build and live my musical dream.”
Over the years, Confetti Da Reala Soulja has built and maintained a network of musical relationships. Business relationships are vital for him to continue to grow, such as relationships with former Rickey Smiley’s social media liaison, Troy Nalls.
Troy knows NWA King Scratch, Tyte Eyez, Wreckshop, Shotime TV, Platinum Producer Double D, Platinum Producer Big Phazz, Platinum Recording Artist Bunny Hop, Mz Fineaswine, B Brown, GMR President Carl Redou, DJs and many more. “I worked hard to earn the respect of the people I needed support to be successful.”
We asked Confetti Da Reala Soulja what other challenges he faced during his musical journey. “Diabetes and blindness as well as the need for money, time and an ever-changing music industry that I had to learn. “
Confetti Da Reala Soulja says today that he is focused on having a true fan base and making music that his fans love and can play. He remembers the enemies saying it was all a dream and he wouldn’t go that far. So now he is focused on continuing to live and build his bigger dreams. “I thank God for allowing me to live my dream and to continue to be the best and the greatest artist and artist that I can be.”
We asked Confetti Da Reala Soulja, don’t you think the price was too high to pay compared to the result. “It’s not for those who don’t have to pay. The price is for those who have to know how to pay the price with a lack of knowledge, wisdom and resources. “
We asked Confetti Da Reala Soulja how much money he thinks he can make in the future of music today. “I still see billions of dollars that can be earned. It won’t be easy, but it’s there if you want to make it happen.
