Inside of Gino White
Tell us about yourself and your music
Hi, my name is Gino White. I am a rap artist from Pulaski, TN. I am also the owner of Mobb House Studio, located in Pulaski, TN. I have been writing music since I was about 16 years of age and I am currently 34 years of age. I’d like to think of my music as “experience music.” Experience music is self-explanatory. As an artist, I like to incorporate my own experiences more so than talking about someone else’s experiences. My goal is to simply speak through lyrics. A stranger made me realize what my calling was. It’s not the music itself, it’s speaking through my lyrics while using music as the vessel to speak with and I am very grateful for that.
Talk to us more about your latest release
Pain In Me is the very first album by Gino White that will be released to the world. All production is handled by Legion Beats. In which, I must give a big thank you to Gabe Schillinger and the whole Legion Beats team providing a great opportunity for independent artists, such as myself. This album happened by accident. As I was in the process of working on another project, I recorded a song called Pain In Me. After recording the song, it was an instant spark of an idea to name my very first album, Pain In Me. The idea of Pain In Me derived from a psychological standpoint. Pain In Me features the lead single, Feel Like Me (Feat. June B) that is available on all major streaming platforms. This album will capture those that can relate to psychological pain. Not to bore you with tracks dealing with pain, we spiced it up with tracks like, Feel Like Me, You Feel Me, and Are U Down. The set date for a release of Pain In Me is set for September 18th, 2020.
What inspired you to write this release?
I was inspired by my current trials and tribulations that I am dealing with. Experience has always been my best way to express myself through my lyrics. At the current moment of writing this project, I was dealing with things ranging from the thought of doing prison time and being away from my children for a long time. From my cousins passing away over 10 years ago, they never were able to see the progression in my artistry. Being able to keep their names alive through music is also a big inspiration when I create music.
Describe the writing and recording process
When I recording the first song, Pain In Me, it created that spark to record a whole album called Pain In Me. After recording that first song, I put a goal together with the writer at least one song per day and record one song per day. Some days, I was able to write and record two to three songs in a day. The process I used in writing and recording is that I would start with writing the hook of a song (if the hook wasn’t already there). Most times, As soon as I have the hook completed, I’d record it and then get back to writing the verse. There would be times I would record the verse as soon as I was finished writing it. Other times, I’d write the full song and then record it. From the writing to recording, I sequenced every track as if they were being played on the album. In other words, I wrote and recorded every song in the order that they are in for the album’s tracklist.
Any plans to release a video?
Any plans to hit the road?
As of now, there are no upcoming tour or concert dates.
As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
I try my best to network with as many different people as I can as I try to be cautious for I know everyone doesn’t have a good heart. Upon meeting new fans, I try to accommodate with free music or merchandise.
Who have you been listening to lately?
I have been listening to T.E.C, Maine Music, Mo3, Boosie Bad Azz, Fredo Bang, Big Boogie, Kevo Muney, Pretty Ricky, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Denise Moore, Lecrae, 1K Phew, God’s Energii, Webbie. That’s just a small list of who I’ve been listening to. There’s quite a few to name. Ranging from mainstream to indie.
Who are your biggest influences?
Master P is at the top of my list of people that influence me. Master P is one of the greatest businessmen in my generation of rap music. Everything I do, I try to incorporate some type of knowledge from Master P.
Tell us about your passions
My passions include but are not limited to, being involved in music in any kind of way I possibly can, being a father to my children, sports (mainly basketball). I enjoy being outdoors traveling.
