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

Hi Don, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
For starters, I believe my purpose is rapping or being an emcee. I believe God blessed me with the gift of articulating my thoughts, real-life problems, stories, and anything He gives me in a way that both appeals to others and glorifies Him. From the day I started rapping seriously in college, I’ve been building and rebuilding myself to be the businessman and rapper that the world sees today. God has been fine-tuning me to His liking to be creative, knowledgeable in business, and spiritually inclined to carry out His will. What you see today is the years of patience and getting to know God’s plan.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
My art is always thought-provoking. My goal behind every post, release, song, and video is to draw you in and make you think 10x harder than before. I want to add to you something new whenever you encounter anything with my name attached to it. I’m a perfectionist too, so things have to be very particular. I get over that by using a method Master Judah taught me: Create and Release; once you create whatever you are making, release it to the world. Just do it. I want the world to know that heaven exists and that the things you are witnessing me accomplish come from the Lord. I’m just a vessel just doing it, whatever he tells me to do.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I give all glory to God and how He orchestrated things. He has blessed me with a great support system. My family stands behind me in everything I do. He led me to a fantastic mentor, friend, big brother, and producer: Judah. This man took my brother and me in, gave us a “home” in music to record out of, and “raised us” musically speaking. I can’t thank God enough for the heart He gave Master Judah. Lastly, I thank all the supporters and listeners. God gave me this gift for a reason. With every listen, you are all just showing me it works.
