Ride or Die: C-Ride

CRide1 (1)
C-Ride is used to the spotlight, even if you’re not used to his name yet. The Florida representor has been a staple of the Epidemic Music/Polo Grounds team for years now. After making a name for himself on the underground, he’s ready to make his presence known in the mainstream.

With a slew of new mixtapes on the horizon and a new album coming down the pipe line, it looks like C-Ride is ready to put his name at the top of the marquee.

C-Ride stopped to talk to wordonthestreetsmag.com about his new music, working with Cool & Dre and why the indie scene might be better than the major label.

Wordonthestreetsmag.com: You we’re big on the mixtape scene for a while. What made you slow down with that

C-Ride: (laughs) they shut it down. I was real big on the mixtape scene, but after a while, they started to slow it down. The Dj Drama situation made a lot of people fall back.

Wordonthestreetsmag.com: What’s going on now with you? Are you still affiliated with Cool and Dre?

C-Ride: Yes! I’ve been riding with them for years now.

Wordonthestreetsmag.com: How did you find yourself with them in the first place?

C-Ride: I pressed up a demo a while back. Dre got his hands on the mixtape and brought me it. Its been a gift and a curse. I can get any track or any feature I want because I be in the studio so much with them. I’ll be working on my stuff and someone big could come in to work with Cool and Dre and I can get them on my track, but that puts more pressure on you.

Wordonthestreetsmag.com: Underground or the mainstream? What has been better for you

C-Ride: The underground is great. I was making money on the underground scene. That game was crazy till the end. It gave me a buzz. I was able to get meetings and take meetings with some big names.

Wordonthestreetsmag.com: So what made you move to a major?

C-Ride: I was bigger on the indie scene. I’m from that and I’ll always be on that scene no matter what happens.

Wordonthestreetsmag.com: So what are you working on right now

C-Ride: Right now we got the single “Money Round Here” ft T-Pain coming out. I also got another single called “What’s Hood” that’s about to drop. The album “Automatic Vibe” is coming spring/summer and the mixtape “Arab Store” will be coming before that. Check me out at c2theride.com for all details.
