Featured artist: GMane – Country Rap to Southern Soul
As part of our ongoing “Rap’s New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist GMane from Muscle Shoals 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, GMane! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?
GMane: My pops played piano, drums and guitar and was also a radio and club dj. I loved every kind of music so I was dj'ing at 9 years old. After "Rappers Delight" I was just a rap fan and by age 13, after hearing Chuck D and Ice T, I decided I wanted to rap. The rest is history.
Master your craft. Learn the business. Have faith. Put in the work.
What about concerts? Do you play live?
I play live every now and then, mostly festivals and car show type stuff. I've toured overseas so I'm really looking forward to getting back over there to that bag.
