Undeniably the uprising star of the drill movement, the 600 affiliated driller, 600 Breezy went throught a lot. While his body holds the stigmatas of those many wars, his drill holds their scriptures. Few are the ones who survived, and the bloodshed is still to this day an ongoing situation in Chicago. We had a chance to talk to him and here are his words.
First of all thanks for giving us a chance to know you better, can you introduce yourself for the profanes ?
A man of God that dont take no shit from no one, loyal father of 2 born and raised in Chicago South Side, The Ceo and founder of 600Cartel with many rap names, Breezo, Max Payne, Thotman Breezo, I am a student of hustling and thankful to make money from my hardship and pain from losing so many brothers to the streets.
Your lifestories’s spin offs have propelled you to the forefront of the drill scene and so has been your music. Can you walk us throught your woes.
L’a was outta here and his death was crazy Peoples was disrespecting him to build up so I took it on myself to diss back but I didnt know it would stick and effect the city but he deserve respect period.
Why talk about opps, go to youtube look up 600breezy and that era happened and now I am here. As for Drake, he is a music lover and eye for talent, he often played my music on OVO radio and we rock as homies, he is a very interesting person and has been through a lot too.
Sometimes, people think rappers ain’t bout that life, but he is on the road all the time and has to address any situation he can be confronted to on a daily basis. Like me, I went through some much on this street shit that I have a lot to say in my music.
The last video you released featuring Young Swav is straight fire, how deep runs your connection with New York’s factions ?
They rock with me and I definetly rock with NY Period I receive a lot of love and support, Young Swav is from Polo Grounds, in Harlem and we slid thru and still making rounds Salute to the Real and True.
Twenty two & nine have been behind bars for a while, both were found guilty of first degree murder, CDai has got 38 and Rondo could still face from 45 to life. You hold Tay responsible for their condemnations ?
No, he just played a unfortunate role that effected their case. don’t you fear that if anything would happen to him, you could be hold responsible for it and how different your lifestyle has been on a daily basis since their incarceration anything happen to Tay 600 wouldnt have anything to do with me, that statement he had to give against his brothers, probably makes him feel that nothing else could happen since he is locked up and assisted in their case.
I wish they all was in the studio and on a stage performing than being caught up in the alleged events, that i am not aware to what is true or not, beyond the news reports and court documents. I pray for the guys, and just want the Gods to set them free so we can make music and money period.
Drake have been f**king heavy with the chicago drill scene. First with Louie then Bibby and now you. Do you think the 6 god has been linking up beyond his love for the music, for protection & therefor uses chiraq’s violent reputation to its own benefit.
Hell No, Drake wants to see u win, he told me I could change and add positive twist to it if I got focused at the time I was just Hyped I reached his radar, but more and more I see his genius in see something in me before I did and others! He hustling and I am working on mine to be able to charge 500,000 a show for 60mins and hire my team and make them wealthy!
You released an album & a mixtape on the same day with a total of thristy songs. How do you explain the moves you make to keep promoting your craft and how do you position yourself in the music industry ?
My team is ran by my auntie and uncle are seasoned music industry consultant and I partner with Empire to distribute my music and I have Audible Treats as my Pr Team. With those combinations we are always planning and I am always recording, and learing my role as Ceo and artist & balancing it as a Father of two.
Fifteen for a featuring & twenty grand for a show can quickly add up and turn aspiring artist into money making machine. Buzzing out of NY, Gary Vaynerchuk, adresses hustle, investements and entrepeneurship. where do you see yourself in ten years and how would achieve your rise to the a million dollar empire ?
An example to my kids and my family, my neighborhood, and fellow hustlers, that the dream is real and its how you approach it, and handle it and most important maintain to pass down wealth, that i didn’t enjoy growing up. I own my first company now 600 Cartel and will have real estate , and invest in profitable moves to make sure my kids…
Would you have any advice for an upcoming artist who would like to make it in the rap game?
Have a seasoned team, have a plan, put God first, and let no one take money or opputunity away from your or ykur family. Be independent and have great partnerships with 3rd larties that empower your vision and brand.
Last but not least, what is up next for the Sixo Breezo in the upcoming months?
Leading Scorers Edition, Max Payne & a record for the ladies Thot Man Breezo.

ADDITIONNAL STORY : Being from Chicago you are offered a lot of choices and some of the choices are somewhat survival based as a young man of color in the inner city of Chicago and some south suburbs like Harvey. We have to defend our family and friends and hood just like the military does for the Government and OUR COUNTRY, seeing your homies die right in front of you, and for me my nigga Dthang in my arms 2011, and it really did something to me, me and Fredo Santana was talking and we both said how weed helps us with PTSD, I cant even imagine what the soldiers overseas have to deal with, when motherfuckers are leaving bombs and got snipers and shit on your ass.
