The Breeze first introduced business marketing and communications major Joey Atilano (60 East) last semes­ter as he campaigned for and later won a spot to perform at the independent hip-hop festival, Paid Dues.

“Since the last interview I have just been focused on making music, learning more about the music business and going to school,” 60 East said. “It’s getting real hard to balance work, school and music with new opportuni­ties approaching everyday. I’ve just been playing things by ear.”

In playing things by ear, 60 East has been keeping up on the show circuit, recently performing at the music and art celebration, End of Summer Festival.

“The End of Summer Festival was a great event,” 60 East said. “I actually heard about it last year randomly and decided to attend as a fan, not knowing anyone that was on the lineup or anyone throwing the event personally. The event was during my Paid Dues campaign which included attending independently thrown events and promoting our campaign. While I was promoting at the festival, I ended up meeting the founder of the event. He ended up follow­ing and supporting me during my campaign. After suc­cessfully getting on Paid Dues, he invited my team and I to perform at the 2nd annual EOSF.”

The Thursday following his EOSF performance, 60 East was announced as 2013’s Best Hip-Hop Artist, as chosen by voters on IE Weekly. Holding the title, he continues laying out his next plans for success.

“I am going to be releasing a mixtape in Oct. 2013 called ‘Mood Muzik Mixtape,’ which is the 2nd mixtape in a remix series I am working on. Following that, I will be releasing the music video to the single off my upcoming album ‘Motivation.’ After that, I will begin the promotion­al process for my upcoming album ‘10,000 Hours,’ which will hopefully be ready early next year. We (First Dirt) will be going on The Black Rosary Tour with artist Chino XL and another with artist Blu in the next few months.”

Ryan Lewis Wins Billboard Magazine's #1 Top Producer of 2013

“In Australia they’re called “op shops.”

Thanks to his international smash hit, and six-week Billboard Hot 100 chart-topper “Thrift Shop,” Ryan Lewis, 25, has newfound knowledge of and appreciation for thrifting culture around the world. Wherever Lewis and Macklemore, the rapper and his key collaborator, travel in support of their platinum debut album, “The Heist,” fans unfailingly regale the Seattle duo with tales of their own adventures in second-hand clothes shopping — a pastime with unexpectedly universal appeal.” Read the whole article at http://www.billboard.com/biz/articles/news/5748015/billboards-top-producers-of-2013-1-ryan-lewis

We are proud to announce First Dirt artist 60 East has won The Best Hip Hop Artist in the IE Award. Here is the article

“Jose Atilano, better known as 60 East, first got into hip-hop as a kid watching his big brother work on his own music. Since then, his reputation has grown steadily, thanks to a few high profile gigs and some legit tracks. One of those tracks is “Motivation,” which features the lyrics, “You can teach motivation, you can’t fake motivation, so please keep hatin’, ‘cause I could use the motivation.” That’s all well and good, but only issue is that not a lot of people appear to be hating.”
