Corey Paul is now an independent artist. The Houston artist announced in a recent blog post titled “I Quit My Job, Left The Label & Trusted God” that he has made the decision to leave his job as a firefighter and is no longer signed to Collision Records. In addition to that, he announced that he will release a new single titled Pipe Dreams on July 21st. “Coming from where I’m from, anything other than a “regular job” is called a Pipe Dream, which basically means it’s unobtainable. As a believer, I know we have to fight for our dreams and have faith. “Pipe Dreams” paints a picture of the mindset of a 15-year-old Corey and all my lil cousins and homies still struggling to turn their Pipe Dreams into reality.”

To tha young kings and young queens:
I wanted to catch you up on everything that’s been going on in my life! It’s been a while since the drop of Today, Tomorrow, Forever and I’m ready to unleash something new. I’m fully independent now, which is super exciting. I left Collision Records and am ready to pound the pavement on my own.
I learned a lot and was grateful for the opportunity to be a part of a label that helps push the culture further artistically and still authentically stand for Jesus. Nothing negative to say about Collision, the overall experience was invaluable. But now it’s back to the indie grind. It’s still Frontline! I’m an artist who enjoys the business side of the game, so my focus is on continuing to build our team, making good music and being consistent.
