Brandon Lloyd Drops New Single
Having once been called "the President of the Brandon Lloyd Fan Club, I'd truly not be doing my job if I failed to pass on word of his new single, "She All Mine." He's now from "Chi-Town," it should be noted, is apparently huge in Shreveport, and is spitting lyrics like "You know I've been there, done that" and "I'ma do what I'm supposed to do," which both sound pretty amusing from a football standpoint. I'm going to go ahead and admit that I was probably on the wrong side of history on this one, although I still say he was great copy. But not nearly as great as this press release. "If ya nasty," that is.
It is not often that a person has the opportunity to have, and fulfill, 2 separate and distinct career dreams but Brandon Lloyd aka B. Lloyd (if ya nasty) may just be one of them. Now a Wide Receiver for the Chicago Bears, Brandon Lloyd, who knew he wanted to be in the NFL since kindergarten, was a 4th round draft pick to the San Francisco 49ers back in 2003 and also played for the Washington Redskins before finding his home in Chicago. Living out a career as a pro athlete might have been enough for most but Brandon's musical alter ego, who fell in love with Hip Hop after hearing Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff's Nightmare on My Street, also wanted to make music of his own.
A phone call to his agent by Still Hustlin' Records owner and fellow artist and long-time friend, Renegade Foxxx gave B. Lloyd the label home, and the shot, he was looking for. With a first single that features the old school crooning of Bobby Valentino called "She All Mine" that is making all the right moves at radio (Corpus Christi, Lexington, Shreveport, Jackson, Baton Rouge, Gainsville, Tulsa, Biloxi, Augusta et al), it seems that Brandon has every chance of pulling off a career with his 2nd love. She All Mine is B. Lloyd's musical reflection back on the dating escapades of he and his wife and he wrote it while the two were vacationing together.
"She All Mine is about a man who feels that his relationship with his lady is about more than the lovemaking." he shares. "I knew Bobby Valentino's voice would be a perfect fit for the song and he blessed me by being willing to grace the song of an up-and-coming artist. Not everyone is willing to do that."
What drives this young man to not only pursue with equal fervor 2 very challenging career paths, but to offer himself up to the derision that often accompanies sports figures who try to break into music? The youngest of 7 children, Brandon Lloyd gives all of the credit for his incredible drive to his parents.
"I knew I wanted to be in the NFL when I was in kindergarten." Brandon remembers. "I once got sent to the principle's office for saying I wanted to be a professional football player in class when the teacher asked us all what we wanted to be when we grew up. The teacher said it was an 'unrealistic goal.' My Mom and Dad had always told me I could do anything I wanted. Just give it 100% and I can attain it."
