Meet Cedric Reynolds of Cedibeats and KrowKlan Media in Baldwin Hills

Today we’d like to introduce you to Cedric Reynolds.

So, before we jump into specific questions, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I started singing in church at age nine. From there, I learned how to play congas, drums, bass, guitar, and piano. Drums are my passion, so in high school, I joined a metal band called “Mirabel.” My band experience led me to learn recording and engineering techniques. Our band was signed to Hotfoot Records in Chicago. We did a mini tour and then shorty broke up.

Suddenly, I found myself back in church but this time in a leadership capacity. I was appointed to lead not one but two bands for to different churches. This required me to organize, arrange, and perform as a lead guitarist and vocalist for two 30 minute intervals every Sunday. Please keep in mind, I did this with two different sets of band members and song choices. Years later (2009), I started producing and making my own beats. Cedibeats aka Cediced joined a group called Young And Vicious (with LA G and Chance Warren). We opened up for various acts such as; Rae Sremmurd, Soldier Boy, Too Short, Andre Nickatina, and ASAP Ferg. Currently, my business partner Chance Powers and I run a company known as Krowklan Media LLC. We are concept creators and all around hustlers.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Seem as though life will just repeatedly slap you in the face. Mom was on dialysis since I was five and was always in and out of the hospital. She died two days before Christmas and my Dad three years later. Losing both of my parents has been the hardest thing I’ve ever had to deal with. Music became an outlet for healing and I began to keep everything hidden (I have close to 4 albums worth of unreleased work). It’s only been recently that I have started to share my passion again. I don’t know if the world is ready but who cares.

Please tell us about Cedibeats and KrowKlan Media LLC.

I am known as the beat man Cedibeats or Cediced.

Most proud of me leveraging my passion to provide enrichment into others lives.

We are set apart because we empower others to become their best selves. Whether it be the nourishment from a taco or making a dope track that brings joy.

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I don’t believe in luck. Just another theory to explain to unexplainable. All I truly know is the universe is trying to constantly balance itself. Therefore I try to stay in harmony with my surroundings. Good vibes only!
