Pacific Division has not allowed their signing to a major label distract them from staying focused on their grind. The Southern California trio explained that they still tend to take a grassroots approach to booking and performing shows.
“Even when we went and signed with Universal we always kept the mentality and that [work] ethic, knowing that we were still gonna have to do stuff on our own,” explained member BeYoung. “Universal is like the muscle. That’s like the steroids. But we still move on our own and put shit together. You gotta stay in your own working unit. It’s like a team effort.”
Universal will, of course, be more directly involved in the promotion of their upcoming debut, Grown Kid Syndrome, although the group says they don’t want to rush releasing the effort.
“We’re working with our first single right now for the album [called] ‘Anti-Freeze’ [that] just hit the streets,” said Mibbs. “So we’re going to see how that works and continue to just build a brand and build a name.” The group did not give up any specifics about the album’s content, but they have already put up an impressive showing with their recent mixtape, Mania.
Grown Kid Syndrome does not yet have a release date.
