Meet Mada Atoms

Today we’d like to introduce you to Mada Atoms.

Mada, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Mada Atoms is off to an amazing 2020, but first let’s take you back to where it all started. From humble roots, I honed my craft through free-styling at local battles and in cyphers with other local artists on the East Coast from Ohio through the Carolinas to Atlanta. In 2016 I made the move to California with goals similar to those of many LA transplants, the goal to shine light on my craft. Over the last few years, I have had the opportunity to dive deeper into production including exploring Pop Music outside of my usual Hip Hop. I released two new music albums; “Distractions” and “Therapy.” Therapy released on 02/20/2020.

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?
Definitely not a smooth road by any means. I am a big believer that challenges will come along the way, but it is all about what you do with the cards you are dealt. I have had to face many tough obstacles in my past, but I am grateful for everything I learned from growing up in poverty. However, I feel fortunate to have a creative outlet to express some of the struggles I faced along the way. I definitely feel the need to give hope and inspiration through my music and artistic endeavors to inspire others that come from similar conditions. Reach one teach one.

We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
Mada Atoms is an artist first, but I am a producer as well. I have various outlets that I work within i.e., Songwriting, Performing, Producing and Engineering. I am most proud of my continuous drive to share my creative work with an ever expanding audience. What sets me apart is my versatility as a creator to delve into different genres and artistic mediums.

What were you like growing up?
“Growin’ Up” is one of the songs from my most recent project so you should definitely check out that record to get a feel for what it was like. I wish I could say I was some musical savant at 3, but my exposure to music creation didn’t start quite that young. Where I was sure to be found was around a Basketball court. Sports played a big part in my childhood as it trained my work ethic, drive and discipline. This shaped my collaborative mindset and working with other artists for a common goal. It also helped instill a competitive spirit that helps fuel my growth as an artist.
