Derek Minor, formerly known as PRo, dropped his new PSA Vol. 3 Mixtape today. You can grab it for free here.
All I need to say is #14 features both Lecrae & Pettidee. Yes, I said Pettidee.
Lecrae AND Pettidee???? I am SOLD! YES YES YES.
^^ Lol, word. Old scool vs new scool. But y the name change?
I think Reach Records pushes their artists to be the same person both on and off the stage, so that is why PRo and Andy Mineo (C-Lite) have gone back to their original names.
^^ Ok? So yur sayin that all reach artists wil b known by ther real name from now on then? U stil got kb, trip lee+ tedashi. R those ther real names or stage names?
tedashii is his real first name
KB is his initials (same idea), and Lee is Trip’s middle name (idk about the “Trip” part). And yeah, Tedashii is his name. Andy Mineo talks about the change in the Formerly Known mixtape, and Chad Jones also talks about his name change in the RMG song “Hello.”
^^ Ok then, acordin 2 yur theory that leaves kb+ trip lee, cuz i stil consida those nik/ stage names. Whos chad jones?
Chad Jones used to be known as Conviction. He’s on Derek Minor (PRo’s) label Reflection Music Group. Tony Tillman (fka Brothatone) also is on that label & recently started going by the new name as well. Tony is his real name, but Tillman has a spiritual reference. There’s a Youtube video about it.
^^ Ok now furtha adin 2 the confusion: I thot derek is stil on reach? If hes stil on reach then is he on his own label as wel? Like a co- release thing?
He was co-signed to Reach I believe. He only released 1 album there. The others have been on his own.
Phil, I think the difference is that KB and Trip Lee use the same names on and off the stage, so their offstage life is still connected to their onstage life. I couldn’t see too many of Andy Mineo’s friends calling him C-Lite during everyday activities, so he changed it.
Ok, thanx 4 the info.
Ok, makes mor sense now then, lol.
