Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, Gemini rico! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?
Gemini rico: I was always into music growing up listening to 2pac biggie ugk Scarface OutKast run DMC mc lite etc. But I really started making music after the loss of my cousin lil Steve and every since then I put the pin and pad down and started speaking from my heart
2pac "keep it real with your lyrics no matter what don't be afraid to go deep into your roots and let it spill out"
What about concerts? Do you play live?
When I was young I use to perform city to city with my group "ETERNAL HUSTLAS" we performed in Chicago for a event called " Get seen get signed" I performed for Ludacris event "DTP MADNESS" I performed and opened up for "Ruka Puff"
Best punchline you ever wrote?
"Every day a nigga die that will never change police out here killing us too wonder who the blame,cuz all I see is the same thing we searching for some justice still trapped in this same DREAM"
