This week I was blessed and honored to interview the CEO of Full Pound Records: Raziel Chamel. The interview was definitely an amazing experience. He is considered to be a local celebrity but I would say he is a little more than that. He has a very heavy following outside of Florida in places like New York, Atlanta and Boston among others. Even though he is well known, he is still one of the most humble people I have ever met.
So where did this all start, like many others he always had a passion for music and in high school he started to take his music seriously. He then graduated from Full Sail Universitywhere in his last year there started Full Pound Records. When he started Full Pound he still hadn’t decided exactly what he wanted to do, he just knew he wanted to be a part of something great. While in Orlando, attending Full Sail, he did an internship and later got a job at 99 Jamz.
His main inspiration and motivation is his family. He makes music based on how he’s feeling at the moment. When it comes to artist, he really looks up to Bob Marley and Michael Jackson. In the future he would love to work with 50 Cent because aside from being a fan of his music he has respect for everything that 50 Cent has accomplished.
He is known as Raziel Chamel. He also has a couple other stage names such as Chamelaflow and Mr. Fantastic. Raziel is his given name, which is unique in itself. Chamelaflow was given to him because of his unique ability to adapt to any beat and make all types of music. Mr. Fantastic is a whole other side of him and a friend gave this name to him a long time ago.
When it comes to current work there is so much that all I can say is check out some of his sites. However, the main focus right now is the “Swirlin” record that is currently being played on 99 Jamz and the video has been featured on MTV jams. This past weekend he just released the remix that features none other than Fat Joe and Ace Hood.
In the future all I see are great things for Raziel as well as for Full Pound Records. They are more than on the way and are a making major moves in the industry right now. Ten years from now Raziel would like to be settled down with his family and helping young artists trying to get into the industry.
