In the dynamic and ever-evolving music industry, it takes a unique blend of talent, passion, and authenticity to truly stand out. Rising artist MeatSpady (@MeatSpady), hailing from Philly, is breaking barriers with his versatile sound and strategic approach to his craft.
MeatSpady’s love for music has been a lifelong affair, stemming from his early days as a child. However, it wasn’t until 2018 when he released “The Beautiful Letdown” mixtape that he saw how deeply his music could resonate with listeners. Fueled by the impact of his storytelling, MeatSpady decided to take a chance on his passion for music. Through ups and downs, he persisted, honing his craft to emerge as an independent artist with a unique voice.
MeatSpady’s sound can be best described as rooted in authenticity. His latest project, ‘The Same Kind of Different,’ is an 11-track project that remains true to who he is as an artist and as an individual. With a versatile range of influences that encompass genres from Eminem to Sade, and from Bob Marley to Bobby Caldwell, his music defies categorization. He purposely avoids comparisons, believing that expectations can often lead to disappointment. However, the influence of artists like J. Cole and Nas is evident in his deeply introspective and thought-provoking lyrics.
Among the memorable moments in MeatSpady’s music career, a recent milestone stands out—the album ‘The Same Kind Of Different’ entering #77 on the Billboard Top 100 Current Album Sales chart. In addition, he was also listed as #46 on the Emerging Artist chart. As an independent artist from Philly, this achievement is nothing short of extraordinary. With no major label backing or high-profile features, MeatSpady’s success is a testament to strategic planning, hard work, and the support of his team and fans.
As far as insight to his creative process, MeatSpady draws inspiration from real-life experiences, recalling moments that left a profound impact on him. He collaborates with producers who understand his vision and emotions, fostering a chemistry that translates into seamless production.
Like many rising artists, MeatSpady has faced challenges in the industry. He’s witnessed political dynamics and encountered individuals with questionable business practices. However, he remains steadfast in his principles, vowing not to compromise his authenticity or change who he is to fit into the industry mold.
Looking forward, MeatSpady has a clear vision for his future. Staying independent and true to his character, he aims to be a trailblazer, educating others on the benefits of charting their own paths. He aspires to leave the industry with the same honor and reputation he came into it with—consistency is the hallmark of his journey.
Beyond his music, MeatSpady’s thirst for knowledge may surprise many. Having read Webster’s dictionary from front to back twice, he’s a connoisseur of words and the intriguing meanings they hold. If not for music, he envisions himself as a traveling psychologist, driven by a desire to understand people’s thoughts and motivations while exploring the world.
