Meet Thomas (Donnie B) Wilson of Rare Breed Nation in Downtown

Today we’d like to introduce you to Thomas (Donnie B) Wilson.

Thomas, before we jump into specific questions about your work, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I moved to Atlanta 2008 to Attend Clark Atlanta University. In my first year of college, I started my own party promotional team to start throwing college parties and I started to manage my roommate who wanted to be a rapper. I did that for nine years. After that, I decided I wanted to start doing music myself and tell my story. 2017 I made my first song, Called Why Not. Six months later, I dropped my first project titled Rare Breed Vol 1. The project got a lot of good feedback from my supporters. A Few months after I dropped my first project I created a label because I wanted to help out other artist. Jan 14. 2018 I created My Label Rare Breed Nation, LLC. Over the last two years, I have been building the brand and learning the business and developing artists.

Has it been a smooth road?
Nothing worth having never really comes “Easy” in life . The music industry is a very tough and expensive industry. You get out what you put into it. So I would say it has been a learning experience and I have seen tremendous growth from the start to where I am today. I think as a new artist and Music Executive, I’m moving at a very good pace.

We’d love to hear more about your work.
I am the CEO of Rare Breed Nation an independent record label. I’m also an artist. I’ve built a team that consists of engineers, producers, artists, videographers and managers. I’m proud of the movement that I’ve built. I have supporters all over the world. My brand has had national exposer. I have all the pieces to run a very successful business label. What sets me apart from others is exactly what the company says I’m a Rare Breed. I turn dirt into gold.

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
Within the next five to ten years, I’ll have a partnership with a major label to be able to run my business on a national level as well. I will be responsible for producing some of the best music the world has ever heard. And also be responsible for producing some of the world’s best movies.
