Divine Minds: The Future of Music

Divine Minds is a record label, a clothing company and much more.  Divine Minds began with tragedy in 2012 as the founder Dom Ciccone’s brother tragically passed away.  At that moment Dom Ciccone (also known as Dommy Divine) said, “I wanted to do something positive with my life”. That is exactly what Ciccone did.  Divine Minds began with Ciccone and his two best friends. They all wanted to do something special;  they had the vision to make Divine Minds “a global movement of people spreading positivity and awareness to each other” said Ciccone. The name of the company came in a very unique way. It was created by Ciccone and his two best friends writing down hundreds of words that they liked crossing all of them out until they were left with the words divine and minds.  Divine Minds started with very little, but Ciccone was determined to make sure that his company would be the best.
Soon after founding Divine Minds, Ciccone would go to local colleges sleeping on students couches just to promote the brand around town.  Ciccone would soon make noise around New England as he started to put together local shows and promote the brand. Divine Minds was beginning to expand as Ciccone would meet major artists in the industry.  He said he would do so “by hitting them up on Twitter and bringing clothes to their shows”.  As Divine Minds kept expanding so did Ciccone’s lifestyle in New England, but everyone working for Divine Minds knew that they wanted to expand.  A little over three years ago Ciccone moved out to Los Angeles.  The brand was not well known on the west coast. He was doing whatever he could to make money for the brand. A couple of years went by and Divine Minds has begun to make a name for themselves worldwide.                                       
Ciccone’s hard work and dedication to Divine Minds has created many close friendships in music.  Some of these artists are the late Lil Peep and XXXtentacion, Bhad Bhabie, Juice WRLD, Ski Mask the Slump God and Cousin Stizz.  As Ciccone was able to expand Divine Minds in this music industry the more opportunities flooded in. An up and coming artist CHXPO wanted Ciccone to manage him and Ciccone took advantage of this opportunity.  Ciccone and CHXPO have done a lot of work with each other and have been able to get involved with music festivals such as Rolling Loud.
As time passed the more successful Divine Minds became, but they never forgot where they started.  Divine Minds never forgot New England and for the first time they were going to host Divine Minds fest on June 9th, 2018 at the Middle East nightclub in Boston with headliner Lil Tracy.  Right after this concert, Ciccone went right back to work planning the brands biggest accomplishment yet, Divine Minds Vol.1. Ciccone said that this concert alone “took like two to three months to put together”.  This concert had multiple headliners on its own, which were Juice WRLD, Cousin Stizz, and Lil Tracy. This concert was able to sell out the Lowell Memorial Auditorium, a venue that holds over 3000 people. I was able to speak with a show attendee and he told me “the experience I had was amazing. I loved how Dommy paired some of the biggest rappers and kept the hype going no longer how long the wait was because I still didn’t want it to end.”  When I asked him about going back to another show he said: “I would 100 percent go to another Divine Minds show”.  This response to the show was one a lot of people gave as Divine Minds put on the show of a lifetime in Lowell.
A couple of weeks after the show Divine Minds released their first official song as a record label which was the song “Dirty Moncler” by CHXPO and Lil Tracy.  After years of hard work, everything from Divine Minds has started to pay off for Ciccone. The success of Divine Minds so far has been remarkable. Truly making Divine Minds the future of music.

Q&A with Cam Meekins

On July 31st, Cam Meekins released Lamp City 2, seven years after the release of Lamp City, which peaked at #3 on the iTunes Hip-Hop charts. With tracks like “Jack Bauer,” “George Foreman,” and “Right Now,” Cam Meekins has created another amazing album. Throughout his career, Cam has over 100 million streams on Spotify alone. The local Bostonian has shown how much potential the city has, and Cam will continue to inspire his fans and the people around him. For people who do not know who you are, what do you want them to know about you? I just want people to give the music a chance. I think if they do that they can get a sense for what I'm about and what the whole Lamp City brand is about. I want to inspire people to get the most that they can out of their own life. I feel that way because I myself want that too. I'm just trying to keep pushing and keep progressing in my life and music is my outlet to talk on that and to talk on everything I go through in life.

P.A.

1. When did you start to make music? I always wanted to pursue music but I did not know how to. I really started about six months ago.  2. What/who inspired you to make music? It started off with me and a couple of friends recording shitty freestyles as a joke and we would just uploading them to soundcloud. The songs somehow got a lot of views and people were liking it so I said screw it let me take this a bit more serious. 3. What is the biggest opportunity you have earned/received in music so far?  My biggest opportunity was probably the Longlivehshawn x Fajita performance. Before that I was not really sure what I wanted to get out of this music thing but after the show I decided I wanted to really take this music thing seriously 4. How does your music stand out compared to other artists?  My music is very unique because of my flow versatility and melody game. I am able to combine my soft voice to hard melodic trap beats. I think I am perfect for today's hi
