We had the good fortune of connecting with Cordell Edmonds and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Cordell, let’s talk legacy – what do you want yours to be?
My legacy is and will be a life of Progess. Growing up in a lower middle class environment some of us thought there was a ceiling to how far we could go in life. Thus far my team and family have progressed far past our expectations and we are only beginning.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
My artform is hip-hop music. Though being an MC is not a completely original idea I have made the extra effort to study all legends from all eras of hip-hop. I have observed how impactful their influence was and is. I’ve come to the conclusion that I want to be known for promoting a positive lifestyle and making it cool. That is both the goal and what I am most proud of when he comes to my music. It hasn’t been an easy journey when I was younger I was actually a gangster rapper. Eventually I realized how destructive my lyrics were to myself and the community around me. These days my mentality is “we can still have fun but we need to grow.”

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Seeing that I’m not originally from here we will probably be exploring together. Still I would definitely take them to Santa Monica pier and Venice Beach. We would have to stop at the Grove to do some shopping and eat at the food market. for entertainment there’s a weekly show case called the juice joint where young very talented artist can go to express themselves. Then wrap all that up with tacos tacos and more tacos from any of the amazing restaurants around the city Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
