The Re-Emergence of a Lost MC
Tell us about yourself and your music
My Music is a reflection of my life experiences mixed with what I have seen. Along with what I would like to become and what I think the world should be. I use different styles depending on production and can’t be confined into a box. For the most part, I like it gritty and edgy though.
Talk to us more about your latest release
Poorly Living with D.O, E. is a project that I wanted to just get back to my street roots. The project before had a more political conscience kind of vibe mixed with some street elements and one or two joints for the ladies. This album is definitely for the hip hop purest mixed with new school elements and West Indian vibes.
What inspired you to write this release?
The inspiration I drew to make this project was my current situation that year. Things that were happening in my neighborhood that would make national news. Relationships with my friends and women and the current situation in Hip Hop. My competitive nature.
Describe the writing and recording process
I write sporadically the vibe has to reach me you know. I draw inspiration also from the production some songs practically write themselves because it will tell me what to say sounds weird but true. Ideas pop up in my head and I say them over and over and over until I can write them down so some songs I may have before I get a beat that matches it. Other times ill wait till I have the beat then an Idea comes to me. As far as recording on this project I recorded it myself in my personal studio and mixed and mastered it myself. I also shot and edited my video for Taking it off which I shot in Negril Jamaica that was a fun experience. I even had a yacht in the shot lol.
Any plans to release a video?
Any plans to hit the road?
Covid-19 has definitely put a hinder on performances for everybody. The last show I did was right before the outbreak in Feb I opened up for Uncle Murda in Brooklyn. I have been invited to a festival to perform so I am weighing do I feel safe enough to go do it. Hopefully, tho when this all settles down I can get to do a lot of shows and try push my movement nationally then globally.
As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
I will simply be myself because I’m a pretty complex interesting individual. I don’t like to use gimmicks and promo tricks. I feel the music will speak for itself my movement is called Gordonsville because in my teens and twenties it was the lifestyle I was living while trying to make the music take off. I’ve been in situations and survived them so I figure once you hear Goonsville you kind of know the type style of music your gonna get, However, I switch it up to keep the audience guessing what I will do next. I guess the word is versatility. I also like some others love the monarchy them cause since a kid I felt like I was the Prince and Pauper or King Arthur that would draw Excalibur from the stone.
Who have you been listening to lately?
Lil Baby, Da Baby, Nipsey Hussle, all my classic 90’s stuff early 2000 stuff. Griselda is dope. I have an eclectic ear so I like a lot of different styles of music. Nowadays tho I like classic R&B the stuff I couldn’t really appreciate as a kid. Since I do rap or I am an MC rather cause to me that is beyond rapper. I like to listen to people that do a style of music I don’t and the art of real singers are lost because every rapper is considered a singer now.
Who are your biggest influences?
Nas, Biggie, Jay-z, Tupac, Mobb Deep. Wu-tang, Busta Rhymes, Rakim, LL- Cool J, Run DMC, KRS One, Kool G Rap, Mic Geronimo, Most MCs out of Queens during the golden era of Hip Hop. Snoop Dogg, Dogg Pound, Bounty Killer, Elephant Man, Beenie Man, 50 cents, The Lox I can go on and on. So many more MCS but I can say that’s the Core nucleus of them all. Bootcamp Clik I liked them too Sean Price was good.
Tell us about your passions
My family. Success. I love my wife and Kids im grown you know. I want to get into philanthropic endeavors that can institute social change. The highest the one true universal living God not to get to into religion. Just improving my quality of life while continuing to inspire others, anything I do it passionately I give my all.
What else is happening next in your world?
Only God knows because I can plan but he is the best of planners. Hopefully, I can release some more projects that I’m currently working on right now but won’t say nature because I have seen my ideas after spoken by me whether online or to a friend done by someone else, so just stay tuned.
