Live from the 7’5

Featured artist: Gavin Isaiah (GVNDV ) – Live from the 7’5

As part of our ongoing “Raps New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist Gavin Isaiah (GVNDV ) from Chesapeake 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, Gavin Isaiah (GVNDV )! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?

Gavin Isaiah (GVNDV ): I always loved music and writing so i just found a way to combine the two things i liked to do best.

Dont let the opinion of others manipulate your thought process, always stay true to your craft and what it is YOU as an individual does.

What about concerts? Do you play live?

I love doing live shows and getting feedbackfrom the audience , its always love after i get off the stage and thats a big confidence boost , i cant wait to get on the stage & i never wanna get off when im up there so yeaa … i love it.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

We live from the ceiling, i came from the basement, quicker than an AK-47 shell casing.

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

Right now im working on my fourth studio project tittled “Lil MacBook” wich i plan on dropping near the end of November around the time of my Birthday.

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

I would but i feel like thats taking the easy way out, i’d like to be established as an independent artist before I sign any major deals because then its a situation of how can we help each other and not how can you as an artist recuperate all this money we just put into you.
