Who Is?/Official Hype

Who Is: C$C Dolphin

As you see your self, who is C$C Dolphin?

I’m “C$C Dolphin” from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I’m a 18-year-old Rapper/Songwriter/ Member of group “C$C / Ca$hClownzEnt” with fellow group members & brothers “C$C Ronday, LP , C$C Young Tino.”  I started rapping at the age of 10 years old around 2006. I’m all about respect, prospering, hard work, dedication, being ambitious and what ever it takes to reach my dreams and be successful. I’m a big fan of working with a lot of artist. I always try strive to make myself better along with others. All about my music.

What brought you to the entertainment industry and music specifically?

Growing up I was always a big fan of music, from local to industry. Free-styling was a big thing going around and rapping was something I wanted to try because of the attention and the love you got from females and others. But specifically my brother’s were already getting their feet wet in rapping and making music. I wanted to get better first so I kept working before I actually made it official that I wanted to rap. So that ultimately lead me to start progressing my rap skills and it went forward from there.

What and/or who influenced the sound you bring today?

My brother’s influenced me the most, hearing them and their own unique sounds made me want to have my own unique style. Besides that I have a deep feel for a lot of underground artist and industry. Known wise I’d say  Lil Boosie, Meek Mill, Yo Gotti, Young Jeezy, Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, T.I, Future, Tupac, Nas, Rick Ross, Etc. It’s more but those are the main artist I grew up to who’s messages I grabbed on to who put their struggles in their music with similar backgrounds, different places and different stories. So I want to give my story for others to relate to.

What was the biggest obstacle in getting to your current career phase?

I’d say learning how to network and working on music consistently. I found that it is really important to keep your buzz fed, it was times I’d get a lot of positive feedback on a new song, slack then the buzz dies down and you have to start from the bottom. I always try to keep my eye out for any open opportunities that fit the path I’m going in. From local to Internet. Networking was a big phase I went through that showed me it’s real importance. Before talking and networking with people I was like a dog in the streets. When I started making music I used to just post songs and barely got a response. So I started building relationships with other artist, producers, promoters, radio shows etc. And ever since I built an understanding on what needs done to move up the next levels of success and exposure.

What do you want people get from your music?

What I ultimately want people to get from my music is a different prospective from another regular person. I want people to have something to listen to when going through something or if they want to feel good or either just ride. Like everyday problems, females, family, money, chasing dreams and whatever a person can go through I put it in my music because I go through the same phases. From partying to losing a family member my music can relate.

Tell us about your last mixtape “Road To Riches,” how did it come together?

My last mixtape “Road To Riches” came together when I decided that I wanted to drop a solid project to really define my talent and rap skill. The track list came together as I found enough solid beats from various producers that fitted my style. On “Road To Riches,” I wanted to showcase my rap skill but most importantly give a solid message of who I am and what i’m about, my environment, dreams, problems, thoughts and opinion. Once I established a solid selection and collabbed with a few artist, I picked the most qualified songs for the project. This mixtape encouraged me to pursue greater heights.

Tell us about your current project and your ApolloNightLA Artist of the Week single “Get Stacks.”

My current project I am working on is “Facts”. This mixtape is currently the most solid project of mine. On “Facts” I ultimately wanted to really pursue greater heights on defining myself but also my talent. From speaking on real life situations, dreams, possible situations, thoughts, lifestyle and feelings It’s all here. That leads into my single, “Get Stacks” which lead me to get, ApolloNightLA Artist of the week. This is one of those tracks where I really had to plant a seed on defining me, also my skills but most importantly how i feel and basically putting business over non priorities. A lot of people can relate, this is one of the tracks  that can define what this project can offer.


What do you feel has been your greatest life achievement so far?

A lot of things such as getting interest emails from established Producer, K.E. On The Track, Other indie producers, Got ApolloNightLa Artist Of The Week twice out of four times on the show. Also getting somewhat national exposure with my music multiple indie radio station around the world. Just knowing established and even regular people respect your music is my greatest achievement.

If you could collaborate with one artist, living or dead, who would it be and why?

If I had to choose a living artist to collaborate with, it would either be Meek Mill, Future, Yo Gotti, Young Jeezy or The Migos for the simple fact that they all basically killing the streets everywhere and all started from the bottom to get where they are now.

Last but not least, HYPE wants to know…What’s your CRAZIEST “Where they do that at?!” moment…

Umm, my craziest “Where they do that at?!” moment…was when my group “C$C” had our first show also part one of a contest. We just made the song exactly hours/minutes before the show. On our song I had the chorus and the first verse, so it was important that I execute first. We turned up the crowd with the beat and hook but when my verse came I forgot my lyrics. Fortunately, we kept the hype and my brothers kept the audience tuned. I don’t know if they noticed after but we still won.
