Scottie Pimpen C.E.O.
I had another sit down with Smokehouse Entertainment C.E.O. Scottie Pimpen. and see how the labels year has been. 9.28.17
Artyscon: Boss man How's life?
Scottie: Life is great. I'm blessed and thankful to be here and able to pursue my dreams while maintaining a decent lifestyle so I can't complain.
Artyscon: What's new since the last time we had a chance to sit down with you?
Scottie: Working hard to continue to grow the Smokehouse Entertainment brand. We've been recording great music and establishing new relationships as well as strengthening those we've already had. Since our last sit down, we've released 7 new projects and have several more on deck to be released. We are now operating out of several cities across the U.S. We are now in Memphis with MJ The God, Salt Lake City with Lil Biggs, Dallas with Playboy Snow, Chicago with D Guapo and Phoenix with Lowend T. Those locations combined with Shawty 4'8", Remy Effect, Mero, and myself holding down the 'Sip have allowed us to put in some work in a real way.
Artyscon: What's the biggest challenge of being your own brand?
Scottie: I would say brand recognition. With so much music available from the established mainstream artists as well as the hungry underground artists, it takes a lot of effort to establish a brand in the marketplace and do the work necessary to make it stand out amongst the crowd.
Artyscon: What do you offer artist that no one else does?
Scottie: Smokehouse Entertainment provides its artists with an environment where all of their creative and business needs are facilitated under one umbrella. Business needs such as performance rights organization registration, copyright, and music registration are provided for. We offer legitimate A&R where the focus is on the total development of the artist's creative and performance skills. Unlimited studio access with professional mixing and mastering is provided along with high quality industry standard promotional presentation. We also provide the ability to place music in retail on all available online outlets and streaming services as well as manufacture artist merchandise for fan purchase.
Artyscon: Any shout outs?
Scottie: Shout out to the DJs all over the nation who support the work we are putting in. Shout out to the Smokehouse Entertainment family of artists: Shawty 4'8", Remy Effect, Playboy Snow, Lil Biggs, MJ The God, Mero, D Guapo and Lowend T. Gotta shout out the family and supporters from the home town Love City officially known as Louise, MS. Much love to my Paradise Music Group and Legendary Vibes family. Shout out to everyone who has supported the team by buying/streaming our music and promoting us by wearing our merchandise.
Artyscon: Last words until the next time?
Scottie: Thank you for your continued support of our growth. We need everyone viewing these words to check out the Smokehouse Entertainment Family of artists and share our work with their friends.

SNM: Why'd you start Smokehouse Entertainment and what motivates you today to keep it going?
Scottie Pimpen: I initially started Smokehouse Entertainment as the company that independently released music by The Love City Players which is a group that consists of myself and my two brothers Splurge and Playboy Snow. We released four retail albums which started the growth of the Smokehouse Entertainment brand. Currently, the company serves as the vehicle for the release of music by talented artists from all over the country. My drive to keep the company going is motivated by the huge number of creative and talented artists that are looking for a way to gain respect for their skill and the opportunity to be the first record label from the state of Mississippi to establish itself as a major source of quality content in the mainstream music industry.
SNM: How do you choose your artist is there a certain something that you look for
Scottie Pimpen: I definitely look for certain things when I choose an artist. I first evaluate their skill level as an emcee. I look for emcees who have quality metaphors and word play along with great rhyme patterns and delivery. Next, I evaluate their understanding of the hard work that it actually takes to get the attention of the masses and make them respect your work. Lastly, I look at who they are as a person. People with their priorities in order and chasing goals are the ones I'm most interested in. In order to work together, the person also has to be someone with a decent head on their shoulders and able to accept constructive criticism when we are crafting art.
SNM: How many artist are on the label?
Scottie Pimpen: There are 9 artists currently on or partnering with the Smokehouse Entertainment record label. Artists signed to the label include: Playboy Snow, Shawty 4'8", Lowend T, Mero, Lil Biggs, and Scottie Pimpen. Artists partnering with the label include: MJ The God (Paradise Music Group), D Guapo (Live Legendary Entertainment) and Remy Effect.
