Bringing Pain To The Game!

Featured artist: Pain Gusto – Bringing Pain To The Game!

As part of our ongoing “Rap’s New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist Pain Gusto from Montclair to talk about his recent music, his upcoming projects, his career advice and his overall experiences being in the music industry and he did not disappoint…

Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, Pain Gusto! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?

Pain Gusto: My love for music as a little kid drove me to become an artist, but the song that really made me want to rap was Wu-Tang "Protect Ya Neck". Method Man's verse was flawless and impressive to the point I felt I can do it too.

The best advice an artist gave me is to keep perfecting my craft even when you feel its perfect and it can always be better.
The only advice I can give an artist is to not stop and keep grinding.

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

I am currently working on a Mixtape titled "Pain Muzik 4", the other volumes can be found on datpiff or any other streaming sites. Im also currently working on a album titled "House Of Pain". I also have "Gusto Files" on datpiff and the latest album I released is "Project Mayhem" available on all streaming sites.

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

I don't know if I would sign to a major but im guessing if the contract is right who knows. On one side it'll be great to have a major machine backing me gaining more exposure and then some but then on the side it seems like when a major gets their hands on a artist, the artist changes and becomes the label's puppet and I don't want anybody trying to compromise my artistic beliefs or ways.

Any last words?

Quick shout out to my daughters Karmah and Xena, daddy love you.
Shout to the 4th Ward and anybody that fucks with me, and a special shout out to all lyricists and back packers.. We gonna bring that Boom Bap back!!
