Today we’d like to introduce you to Cl’Che’ Ms. Houston.
So, before we jump into specific questions, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
A Lover of Music my entire life. At the age of 13, I started being affiliated in Talent Shows that were put on by The Og Wickett Crickett (Rip) Around the city of Houston. By the age of 17 ran into a couple of different investors that invested into what was my first album Clasyfyd Lady That was released in 1998. DJ Screw took a few cuts from this particular album ” Can’t Nobody” & ” Bi-Boogie” that enhanced my exposure to Screw Lovers from all over. I also rapped a freestyle on one of the most popular ScewTapes to date ” SouthSide Still Holdin” after that I dropped a few Mixtapes in the later years and then 2004, I dropped my Next in-store Release Off Da Chain that was joint ventured with Presidential Records. Being affiliated and accepted as SUC by Dj Screw himself 2009 I was accepted in SPC SOUTHPARK COALITION by Krino, being from South Park and standing for what the movement stood for. I was on the road a few years marketing and promoting with Showtyme, it kept the bills paid and money to keep releasing what is known as The Hustle Hard Series – a 4 album collection of Cds and DVDS, one DVD that is a 4 hour long filming of my journey on the road in my rap career. With 16 albums, Mixtapes and DVDs collectively and still counting with Ms.Houston to drop 2020, I plan to keep delivering what the music industry is missing.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Definitely struggles along the way. Being a female in a male-dominated business one of the biggest struggles is being overlooked by the major labels because I was a woman In the rap game. Other struggles was trying to pursue a rap career but having to deal with all the males wanting to date u because yall were working together, and if u date them and it doesn’t work out it interferes with the business… Also, the challenges of being on the road selling Cds is different for a woman, I use to be out at the clubs and out and about late night introducing my music to the Late night crowds which was very unsafe and something I wouldn’t dare do today in today’s society, I hated it but I did it to promote my music myself. The Challenge of paying my bills counted on me being on the block and grinding to actually sell my Cds out the truck as well.
We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
I am a music artist, but I own a few different business such as Ms.Houston Custom Prints that provide vinyl printing on clothing and other items. I’m also a beautician with a private clientele.. and I also have Ms.Houston Taxes… What sets me apart from others is that I utilize all my gifts with the purpose of my activism in the community. I’m known for putting up a fight against the odds and not backing down. I fight for whats right, I fight against injustices.
Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I don’t believe in luck i believe in God as The Powers To Be… I believe God played a role through my good and bad to strengthen and teach me the things I know now. I’m still learning and growing by his guidance. I believe nothing is a coincidence. I believe its God’s Plans for my life as I choose to disobey or obey his instructions determine which turn my life takes. God blessed me with a special gift to rap and deliver like I do, now that I know my purpose I use it for his Kingdom which is His people.
