We had the good fortune of connecting with OTG Ceez and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi OTG, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I was working a job I didn’t care for to much. I was tired of working for a boss who didn’t appreciate a great worker. I had been at the job almost 5 years. So I got let go and went into what I’m doing now. Trying to build a brand and business.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’m an entrepreneur above all. I got into music because it was something I was very passionate about. I had always been doing but got serious with it in 2018. I didn’t realize how expensive it would be and the work you have to put in to just get a buzz. My biggest obstacle has been realizing that it don’t just happen overnight. It can weigh on you. Another thing, is not having a team. I can accomplish so much more with like minded people and who understand music. Brand: T.O.P. (Toughest Out Period)
TOP is about being your best and trying to reach the top of any goal you have in life. It’s about trying to be on top period. But the brand encourages you to do things the right way. We ain’t promoting violence or negative stereotypes that hurt black culture. And I try emphasize that as much as I can.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
You gotta go downtown or broad ripple. Downtown has the best clubs. Whether day or night. (After 6, Tiki Bobs, Taps and Dolls etc..) They got the canal. The Indy circle. Both your pro teams down there.
The Eagle is where I eat the most Downtown.
Broad Ripple is a long street of bars. If you a person who likes to bar hop Broad Ripple is it. Land sharks probably my favorite place to go down there.
When it comes to food Kilroys or Brother’s, the place to go.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I like to shoutout God. Mostly because it ain’t easy trying to build and work for yourself. It’s gets taxing at times and you have to have faith you can do it and make it.
