  • Dameon Brewington is like a machine the way he frantically promotes his new music videos and beats on Twitter, although he’s only human. But tell that to Twitter.
    Since Brewington is guilty of repeatedly sending the same message to his Twitter followers to watch his new music video “Cold World” on Sunday, the powers-that-be at Twitter decided to suspend his account as they likely assumed he was a spam bot.
    This might be a major problem if Brewington, better known as his producer and rap moniker B.O.A.T. (Best Of All Time) only had one Twitter account, but he has three: @boatmanproducti, @heartofdelaware and the infamous @bmpteam, his only account currently in timeout. Sunday’s incident marks at least the eighth time he’s had an account suspended. However, being that B.O.A.T. is an independent artist without a record label to provide marketing, he’s limited to how he can share his music with the world on a shoestring budget. So if that means obnoxiously promoting his music on Twitter, then so be it.
    “I was tight!” smiled B.O.A.T., 28, of Milford. “Promoting is part of marketing. You can’t make money if a person doesn’t know your product exists.” But, “if I don’t do it, who’s going to do it for me?” he added. “This is not going to be my last time getting blocked.”
    ‘That song is more personal’
    The video for “Cold World,” the song that caused B.O.A.T. to receive his latest account-suspension from Twitter, is a tune about an ex-friend who betrayed him.
    “That song is more personal to me because it’s a true [story],” B.O.A.T. said. “I didn’t want to really hold a grudge, so I made a song about it.”
    Cold World” will be featured on B.O.A.T.’s new album, which is currently untitled and slated to drop before the end of the year, he said.

    While B.O.A.T. is looking toward dropping his new album, it’s worth mentioning he’s already released two other projects this year: his mixtape “2 Sides To Every Story,” which dropped in February, and his instrumental album “Apocalypse The Soundtrack,” which came out last month.
    He released another video in March for “Remember Me,” a tune that’ll also appear on his new album. B.O.A.T. even produced rapper Yung Texxus’ song “Something New” and the video debuted on YouTube this month. The video currently has more than 43,000 views.
    Desiring to one day own a record/production company, B.O.A.T. knows his versatility as a rapper and producer presents more avenues for people to hear his music.
    “I have my hands in everything,” he said.
