Interview With TonyG @TONYIHC_




1.How long have you been in the rap game?

My first single is “Live Life” which will be the only song I’m disclosing in this interview.
4.Who Do You have On Your Album?
Not an album, albums are like almost perfect when it comes to production, quality and things of that nature this is more of a mixtape. It has no features so the people can get to know me and my music before I let other artists on my projects.
5.How did you get into the rap game?
I didn’t get into rap it kinda got into me… I was rapping at school one evening at lunch time and gotten into trouble for it, got sent home and started to write more and by the time I was back into school I had a demo done (3-day suspension) and the classmates was feeling it so I just stuck with it. Plus my family are all musically inclined as well.
6.Where were you born?
Camden, Arkansas in a hospital with very bright lights which is not good after being in a wound for 9 months straight all of a sudden exposed to very bright lights and a white doctor smacking me on the ass for a response kinda scary if you think about it but that’s a whole nother subject.

This is an interesting question but you know how heavy metal kinda died down oppose to how it was back in the early 70’s well that’s how Hip Hop is going to be if we don’t start taking it back to the essence!! Hopefully, it’s headed to a more beautiful place as it expands and the internet grows but we got a start standing up for it in the songs like how Public Enemy recorded Bring the noise addressing certain things going on in that time and still is now.
28.How do you usually come up with your songs?
Intuition mostly, the beat speaks to me…

God willing I will be in my own realm creating great music and an audience that a ride with me. More of me in a nutshell bio’s, documentaries, concerts and just a lot of authentic value to the people trying my best to help keep Rap alive!
