Block125: “Trappin Is Dead, Its A Totally Different Game Right Now, Your Homies Telling”

Artist, CEO and entrepreneur, Block125 recently sat down with Lalaa Shepard & The Progress Report to discuss being an influence in Atlanta. Not only has Block125 owned a studio and a record store, he’s helped fund the early careers of Young Thug, Ca$h Out, and Bankroll Fresh.

During the interview, Block125 addresses relationship with Rick Ross and misconceptions of Atlanta producing gay men and calls Young Thug a trendsetter.

Block125 also sends a message to current trappers encouraging them to find a different route of generating income instead of the streets and suggests that drug users go to only one supplier.

Co-Owner at Femcee
I am a Music Manager, Digital Content Blogger, Publicist, Radio Personality, and believer of God. I took a leap of faith in 2013 and moved to Atlanta after graduating from Xavier University (Cincinnati, Ohio) with a degree in Public Relations & Business Management. I connected with the Coalition DJs of Atlanta my first week of being in ATL and eventually began interning with the brand. My daily responsibilities included going from a minimum of 4 main clubs each night ensuring that priority records were being played while helping build and maintain consumer relations. During this time, I also worked as an assistant for several producers such as Dun Deal, Sonny Digital and other musicians. Working in such untraditional work environments taught me self-discipline and time management. While building my name and brand, I taught myself how to shoot and edit videos, and build websites. Now I partner with several major blog sites to offer exclusive content written and conducted by myself. I have a Youtube interview series called The Progress Report where I speak to artists, producers, and tastemakers about music, life, and entrepreneurship. I also have a weekly live interview podcast at Highly Unique Radio also called The Progress Report with an all female cast aimed towards giving exposure to entrepreneurs and independent artists. The latest person we interviewed was Orlando Brown, needless to say it was a very entertaining show. I am also the co-owner of Femcee.net which is the all-purpose platform dedicated to servicing and empowering womanhood through digital networking. (www.Femcee.net) I pride myself on loyalty and my work ethic and ongoing commitment to bettering everyone around me from clients to peers while I learn from them. I eventually wish to start a non-profit organization to empower young women teaching them how to be their own bosses. Instagram, Twitter, Youtube, Snapchat & Facebook @LalaaShep
