VA Beach Native, Ced Hughes steps into Virginia's hip-hop landscape via DWEEB Lifestyle, a clothing brand thats more or less a collective of creatives than it is a clothing company, but what they have is pretty cool too. Ced's lyrical game is crazy dope as he combines a steady flow and targets things fresh, relevant, and sometimes irrelevant in todays culture. If you don't listen closely, you may catch a line or two go over your head. What's even doper though, is his production ability. His R&B inspired beats fused with a tinge of old school hip-hop flavor hark on an influence from early Kanye. But, this is just one man's perception. Don't let the former statement be your stopping point at learning more about this artist. Check out the DWEEB promo and extra footage of Ced in the studio after the jump
Ced Hughes - Spacely Sprockets
The DWEEB mission statement is one that we could all learn from:
We are DWEEB (Don't Wanna Ever End-up Broke). We don't wanna ever end-up
intellectually broke [lacking knowledge]...we don't wanna ever end-up
physically broke(n) [lacking good health]...and we don't wanna ever end-up
financially broke [lacking money]. We are inspired by the kids who study
long and hard and have a genuine thirst for knowledge. We are inspired by
the people who grind on a daily basis, personifying "the hustle." We are
inspired by the working class heroes. We believe that inspiration can come
from almost anywhere, and that anything and everything you put your mind to
can be achieved; therein lies our motivation!
