Travis Mdollaz - Ride 4 Me

Travis Mdollaz fully embraces lavish lifestyle by pursuing music career; drops debut single ‘Ride 4 Me’

PORTSMOUTH, VA – Travis Johnson always had dreams of being famous. As one of Portsmouth, Virginia’s most successful entrepreneurs – with more than six successful businesses under his belt – this philanthropic community-minded go-getter is now ready to continue chasing that dream by way of a career in music. Having mastered a number of other disciplines, this highly artistic and creative individual has turned to music and his most recent single, “Ride 4 Me” is the kind of debut that will put him on the global map.

Released on Sept. 8, the song is a Hip Hop ride with R&B undertones that features Travis’ ability to rap and sing. Operating under the stage name Mdollaz, Travis uses this new single to offer the world a fun new vibe with a unique sound and style that he said is needed in today’s music industry. Touching on relationship issues while navigating through societal pressures, the song explores the ups-and-downs of an on-again/off-again relationship.

“It was inspired from a messy breakup that I went through,” Mdollaz said. “Basically, it’s about breaking up and getting back together and all the things that lead someone to think about cheating on their partner. When it comes to my music, I’m different than anything else out there. I don’t follow the trends, I set the trends. I do my own thing. I make my own rules. And I don’t look for validation from the general public.”

Though he doesn’t look for validation from the public, he is an influencer on his community, and he’s looking to expand that influence on a global scale. As an activist, Mdollaz got his nickname by earning the reputation of being someone who is extremely generous. No matter where he goes – whether it’s a public event or a volunteer service somewhere – he’s become known for giving away money. Young people in his community know him as the guy who gives out $1 bills, while organizations and nonprofits know him as the guy who not only invests financially, but also gives of his time and passion without reservation.

He also isn’t reserved about the kind of lifestyle he enjoys. He’s quick to point out that he loves the finer things in life. It’s that lifestyle that first prompted his friends and family to encourage him to pursue a career as a rapper.

“They told me, ‘You actually sound good for starters, so you should just do it,’” Mdollaz said. “So I did a song and music video and people have gone crazy for it. So I’m sticking with it. I hope my music is known for impacting and changing lives. I don’t want to be rapping just to be rapping. I want to rap with a purpose and help people. If my music can give you a kind of blueprint for how to do better, then I’ve done my job.”
