Do you think your upbringing has contributed to your style as an artist?
Nah not at all, I grew up in a very bad neighborhood and I definitely could of went that route with my music, and talked about all the stuff I seen and experienced, but my music has no reflection of that. As an artist, I just like to bring a different vibe.
Describe the biggest obstacle you’ve had to overcome as an artist?
Getting connections into the music industry , because it is a very “have to know somebody” and have connections kind of industry. And me not having any being that I’m the first in my family or even friends to try to pursue music – it was hard.
How have you developed your career?
Getting better as an artist , because that has opened more & more doors for me and better opportunities. Learning how to use Instagram as a brand more than just a regular consumer of the app.
What’s a typical day like for you artistically?
Depends. Sometimes I listen to a beat then come up with a melody then lyrics.
Or sometimes I have lyrics that I just write down then find the beat later.
What inspires you musically?
What inspires me musically is definitely my real life for the most part.
My love life is a big one also because a lot of my songs are about that.
Even if it’s a past relationship or experience that I’ve had in the past it’s still something I could relay in my music today even though I’m not there anymore.
Also just situations I see, definitely also inspire my music.
What is your favorite song you have written and why?
A song I released called WNTR, which stands for Winter, because it is the most personal song I have and it is a true story too. It literally took me like 10-15 minutes to write because it was so real.
What is GLDN FRVR?
GLDN FRVR is ; Obe, Wvz, Sam, Kaylah, Santana, Will & Kendrick (DJ KT !)
GLDN FRVR is a brand that I created to represent me & my music & also my very close friends. To me GLDN FRVR is family, it’s a group of people that mean everything in this world to me. But it is also a brand that has some very fly shit haha so be on the lookout for that.
Who are your biggest musical influences?
DRAKE he’s the GOAT to me. But also PARTYNEXTDOOR & Bryson Tiller definitely influence me. I also like to listen to Chance the rapper, Frank Ocean, Lil Baby, Future, Young boy, Phora & Chalino Sanchez (For all the real ones who know who he is) so I think they have some influence on me too.
Which artist would you love to collaborate with and why?
Drake, the reason is too long to write. Like I said he’s just the GOAT to me.
Where can we expect to see you in 5 years?
In a better place than I am in right now, I don’t wanna put a time stamp on something cause who knows I might think ima be somewhere in 5 years and be there in 2. Wherever I’m at I just wanna be healthy, happy, and making music.
What’s your idea of success as an artist? When will you feel like you’ve made it?
When my friends and family are living comfortable and don’t have to worry about nothing but living their lives happily.
