C.Stone The Breadwinner



With an extensive amount of
street credibility, an illustrious and raw talent, a hard-working
demeanor, and a suave southern persona that captures any music
fanatic, C.Stone truly exhibits the characteristics of an emerging
music mogul of the younger generation. The time exists for Jay-Z,
Russell Simmons, 50 Cent, and Diddy to welcome another rising
businessman & rap Super Star to their legacy.

At the ripe age of 26, C.Stone has accomplished more than the average
young adult working their way up in the entertainment industry.
Writing, producing music and publishing books, event promotions,
designing custom jewelry and successfully running his company Bread
Winner Music & Marketing Group are just a few of his extensive duties.
However, entertainment is definitely nothing unfamiliar into his
upbringing. His older brother, Willie “Jay” Stone, is very well-known
for his claim to fame with 4 trips and 3 wins on Showtime at the
Apollo, racking up a nomination at the 2007 Southern Entertainment
Awards, and selling over 4,000 copies to date of his debut album
“Impatiently Waiting” which was released on C.Stone’s label. In
addition, with upcoming solo albums in the works, a clothing line,
Breadwinner men’s and women’s fragrance
and BreadWinner Films, C.Stone continues to prove that his career is

Music and entertainment ultimately embedded themselves into

C. Stone's life once he began to take notice of his brother's major
talents. Outside of focusing on football and track & filed, he began
to utilize his time in an impromptu studio that he created from
various stereo equipment, including a 5-disc CD player, and a tape
deck. Shortly thereafter, he began to develop a small fan base that
gradually increased. C. Stone slowly established a notable name for
himself in the Central Texas area, but more prominently in his
hometown of Killeen,Tx. During his junior year at Shoemaker High
School, he deejayed at and hosted numerous parties, wrote songs for
J.J., recorded mixtapes with his friends, and started making gold
grills. However, the sudden death of his father in early 2003 was a
major tragedy at the climax of his emerging career. Ultimately, C.
Stone harnessed these emotions and used them as a motivation to propel
his career to a higher level. Upon his graduation from high school, C.
Stone successfully obtained a four year football scholarship to
Abilene Christian University. After completing one semester, he
decided to move his business venture into a bigger city. In 2005, he
transferred to

Prairie View A & M University where he graduated in
may of 2009 and his career reached a much higher peak. Although he
continued to play football, music and entertainment shortly became his
most integral sports to play. Over the next few years, C. Stone
continued to build up his company as well as establishing himself in
the Houston area. He connected with the notable jewelry and
grill-maker Johnny Dang a.k.a. TV Johnny, and recently played a major
role in the grand opening of his store, Johnny Dang & Co. Custom
Jewelry in the Galleria and sharpstown malls. His launching
of his own BreadWinner clothing line Bread Winner Films and
Breadwinner Distribution, continue to motivate him to advance each
project to the next level. C.Stone has also dabbled in the acting
business starring in two Johnny Dang & Co. Television Commercials.
2010 Stone wrote, and performed on “Stay Iced Up” the second single
from multi-platinum recording artist Paul Wall’s album “Heart Of A
Champion” the single went on to get national airplay as well as “New
Joint Of The Day” on 106th & Park and MTV Jamz.

C. Stone exhibits the true qualities and background of a tycoon in
the making. He has the experience to back up his specializations, he
displays a true businessman mentality, and he continues to speak the
truth in his music. C.Stone’s appearances to every major music award
show from the grammy’s to MTV’s Video Music Awards ultimately motivate
him to change the atmosphere of the southern hip-hop culture as well
as the new era of music moguls.
