Brandon Rossi is a man on a mission! A Decatur, GA native, I profiled Brandon Rossi during my time as a staff writer at The Source Magazine and his stock has only risen. His goal then was to follow in Neyo and Dream’s footsteps as a writer/producer turned artist. He’s done just that! Signed as a producer to Roc Nation and as an artist on T.I.’s Grand Hustle, homeboy is on fire!
Rossi told me back in 2014 that a friend once asked him what label he’d sign with if he had the opportunity to choose one. He told him in an ideal and perfect world, he’d only rock out with Jay-Z or Kanye West. His dreams came true January 2013, when he signed to Jay-Z’s RocNation as a writer/producer. “You can do anything in life as long as you truly believe in yourself,” he said back then.
More seasoned and more experienced, he checked in on a recent episode of Scoop B Radio.
“I come from a musical background,” Rossi told me. “My family played instruments and I kind of took it to college where I met a lot of people who were doing music.”
“I happened to meet Rico Love when I went to college and just from hanging in Atlanta, meeting people like Pierre Medor and began to just study and just nerve people and I used to bother them every day because I wanted to make beats because nobody wanted to give me beats so eventually I just learned to do it on my own. From there I just kept on practicing my skills with people in Atlanta just producing music and working on my skills and I did a couple records with Mase, I got on a couple Gangsta Grillz, I was just going in as hard as I could and eventually it landed me where I’m at right now.”
