PeppaBoy Trill McCoy

Everybody knows how hot it gets in the South. Direct your heat meter to the fire at the bottom of the map, “FLA,” The Sunshine State, Pensacola to be exact. Out from the fiery haze walks new contender for the title of heir to the throne, Peppaboy Trill McCoy. When it comes to Southern Hip Hop and Production, he is as hot as they come. The highly anticipated release of his new album, Still Coastin, and chart topping single, She’s The One, featuring Bobby V, secures the throne and adds fire to the flame. Still Coastin is the epitome of the Colacoast sound. This musical mastery is the golden ticket into the life and times of Pepp, “I talk about everything from pretty weather, good cooking, and turf riding, to the real reason my state is shaped like a gun, he shares. He goes on to say, I’m a true sportsman, so I rhyme my words in a sporty, freestyle manner.” It’s no wonder that for his production he is known as Da Gumbo Kooker. He has branded the Colacoast sound with a new, original, full- flavored recipe that is as thick as roux and infused with spicy notes of various styles. With his degree in Petroleum Technology he is a seasoned businessman, and these chops are on full display as the distinguished CEO of Colacoast Entertainment LLC. His robust roster is full of artists, producers, musicians, and entertainers that extents south of the equator with Paulo Cesar Carvajal Galvez aka Paul C, a singer, and songwriter from South America. Looking forward, his 2018 release of a blues compilation features various artists and features soul collaborations such as Shairblliss, Raven Salve, Brandon Powell and many more. And stay tuned as Peppaboy and his crew tour to a juke joint near you.

Kay K Rosemond
 
Born in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn in the late seventies Lyonel “Kay-Kay” Rosemond was exposed at an early age to a cultural melting pot that would eventually shape his view of life. During this period, Lyonel was a virtual sponge in the community, never afraid to speak to a stranger or take an unconventional path to achieve his goals. Although he does not recall every detail of his early upbringing, he fondly remembers being enamored with the soul singers of the 70’s, which included Marvin Gaye, Al Green and Otis Redding. However, he would soon become entrenched in the hip-hop scene that was beginning to take over during his adolescence. At the time, little did he know that these musical influences would have a great deal to do with the career he ultimately chose as an A&R with Motown/Universal Music Group.
During his early years, Lyonel did not expect to pursue a career in music, but rather was more interested in expressing his natural talent and love as an artist. While other kids were munching snacks while watching the Sunday morning cartoons, Lyonel would find himself drawing many of the characters as a way to perfect his craft. At an early age he decided that he would pursue a career as an artist for his favorite comic book company, Marvel Comics. Lyonel soon enrolled in a school for cartoon illustration and shortly after began receiving requests from friends who needed logos for the companies many of them hoped to form. In 1994, however Lyonel began to see his career path change course after he was contacted by his Uncle Jimmy Henchman Rosemond who was already well known in music industry circles, and was about to start his own management company. Lyonel remembers being excited about his new opportunity, but feeling that his knowledge of the music industry was limited to what he saw on TV, not the behind the scenes work that many took for granted.
Once entering the music industry Lyonel realized that art was not his only talent, as he quickly adapted to the scene and learned what something he feels very few comprehend – most of the artists we love and follow often don’t live the life they portray. It was at this time that Lyonel realized that the music business was in fact business first, and he began to actively increase his contacts by making a conscious attempt to mingle with those that would become his peers. His hard work paid off, when in Kedar he was offered a job to work in the A&R department at the historic record label Motown. Since joining the Motown family Lyonel has worked with a bevy of artists including Erykah Badu, Chico DeBarge, Lil’ Wayne, The Temptations and R&B crooner Joe. He feels that his work with Badu was the most special because of the authentic approach she took to developing her music, never rushing to comfplete a song or forcing a concept – “I learned so much from working with Erykah” says Rosemond. 
Work however, is not the only important thing in Lyonel’s life, as he is deeply spiritual and involved.
