What inspired/the meaning behind your artist name?
Growing up, my uncles called me C-Monster. A few years ago, a friend of mine started calling me beast, and in this creative mind of mine, I created the name CEDBEAST so essentially the young C-Monster grew into CEDBEAST.
Where were you born/grew up/currently live?
I was born in San Francisco. I spent time in Daly City and Sacramento in my younger years. In 2005, I moved and settled into a life in Marysville California and that’s where I currently reside.
What advice do you have to youth who want to pursue a career in music?
I don’t know if I’m in a position to give advice since I’m new to it myself, but I would say if you love it like genuinely love it, then dive in headfirst. Do your research and don’t half-ass it. Be original and carve your own lane.
Who is your biggest motivation?
Other than myself, I’d have to say, my nephew. I want him to say “yea your uncle’s cool but my uncle is a freaking CEDBEAST hip hop superstar”. I want to be someone he can be proud of. That’s my guy right there.
Why should people listen to your music?
Because it’s not like what’s popular right now. I’m no gimmick rapper. I don’t have colorful hair or nails. With me you’re almost getting back to basics with straight passion.
