WHAT IS BIKEDOPE? Today’s world is wacky! With so many trends and fads in the world it’s to hard for people to keep up with what’s hot or stylish. Truthfully who cares what they do. The BIKEDOPEculture and creed is a little different. We believe in hunting down our passions, breathing life into our dreams and completely destroying the shit that stands in the way of our destiny. BIKEDOPE is a culture not just a brand. Our goal is to encourage people to be themselves. Tweek the stuff that needs tweekin, but be greater at the stuff we’re already good at. People should be accepted for who they are and there beliefs and not what they look like. BIKEDOPE gives a voice to the voiceless, and the unseen a certain visibility and clarity. We don’t follow what’s hot or trending. BIKEDOPE is fanatical about dream chasers and people who are cozy in their own skin. Lead the charge and be freaking great at it.

Kevin Liles interviewed for Music Biz Worldwide
300 Entertainment co-founder and CEO Kevin Liles was featured in Music Biz Worldwide’s first US print edition detailing the success and growth of the independent company. “We wanted to build a disruptor, to say, ‘Let’s get rid of all the red tape,” he said in the interview.
Kevin also speaks his mind on diversity within the music industry and broader issues like troubles within the education and judicial system. “One reason why we are independent, the reason we choose to do our own thing, is because there’s a problem with the system – not just the music system, but the education system, and the justice reform system. This is life in the eyes of somebody who lives it every single day.”

Singer / songwriter Rico Davis delivers the official video for “Down” from his latest project The Golden Ratio. Filmed in Harlem, Rico survives some stalking from co-star Shana Solomon in this Ivore Rousell-directed visual.
“So much of my music is inspired by past eras, and ‘Down’ represents my appreciation for the ’90s R&B influence,” Rico told Stuff Fly People Like for the premiere. “I feel this video is a fresh reminder of what it’s like to just live and have a good time. I like the idea of reconnecting with your real ones, and hitting all the lit house parties during the summer. There is one moral to this music video however… don’t take drinks from strangers!”
