Carolina Street Connect : Colonel Loud

Born in Fort Lauderdale, but an Atlanta resident for 10 years before settling in to Goldsboro, N.C. Colonel Loud swapped the street life for the studio after years of balancing both hustles. His music revolves around the day-to-day struggles of the average person, something he prides himself on.

 

“A lot of artists try to tell everybody else’s story to please other folks or create an image that’s not true to who they are. People see through that. I rap about what I know and that’s why people connect with me as an entertainer. I entertain people but it’s based on personal experiences; I spit the real.”

 

Colonel Loud will be honored at the 30th Annual ASCAP Music Awards  on June 22nd in Beverly Hills, C.A. for his hit single "California." Congrats to everybody who contributed to the record. GOOD look for N.C.
