Ced-O-Matic is a 26 year old Hip Hop artist and singer born and raised in Hassell, NC. Ced always had a thing for beats and that’s what made him start doing music. After writing for a while he began putting pieces together and eventually went to the studio and started to record.
“When I hear a good beat my first thought is what is this song actually saying?”
“What the hell am I going to do with this?”
I asked Ced who he was influenced by and he said Yo gotti because that’s who he looks up to. He was intrigued by the way he does things and puts people on.
“He’s a go getter and always tells stories in his songs that are appealing.”
Aside from working Ced says music relaxes him and sets his mind free.
“It gives me something to do and create.”
“I like being able to create a sound. If it wasn’t for beats I wouldn’t be doing music.”
Ced-O-Matic feels his sound is what separates him from other artists.
“No auto tune, no trying to be somebody else, just being yourself.”
Right now he has his first mixtape out called My Time Is Now. There are 11 tracks and he is pushing a song called Apply Pressure. The name of the song came about when a friend told him that no matter what… keep applying pressure.
I asked Ced what could the Carolina music scene improve and he said…
“Local artists need more support in North Carolina because other states push their artists.”
Ced is opening up for YFN Lucci on March 10th in Pittsburgh, PA.
By the end of 2017 Ced-O-Matic’s goal is to be signed. He wishes for CMG or Think Its A Game. I asked him why does he want to be signed and he said he wants freedom to be able to make money and do what he wants as an artist.
“Speaking things into existence.”
If it wasnt for music Ced says he would be a mechanic.
“I’m good with my hands.”
He wants you to know that he really is a nice person and what he has made himself into is the image he wants to portray.
