The Real Is Back!

Featured artist: Vernon Garrett – The Real Is Back!

As part of our ongoing “Raps New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist Vernon Garrett from Philadelphia, PA by way of Pitt Co., NC 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, Vernon Garrett! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?

Vernon Garrett: Always had the talent but once I started getting into trouble I had people around me urging me to start back focusing on activism and music.

Bet and invest on yourself, allow nothing and no one to stop you from accomplishing your goal..

What about concerts? Do you play live?

Yes, I have opened for a few major artists in the past and have performed at quite a few after hours spots throughout North Carolina.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

They say hate is a frail trait, just a sign of the weak.. Can move mountains but they don't even want you reaching ya peak… #lite

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

Recently released #Hallelujah, #MVP, TFTH (Tales From the Hood) ans #DaveEast (video drops in November). Also have several upcoming projects including "Somebody Lied" and "Do Real Things"

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

Would possibly sign if the paperwork and math adds up. The pros of being signed would be the use of a bigger budget, more powerful outlets and connections. The cons would be legal obligation to company who does not have your best interest at heart, the possible loss of creative control and the revenue pie being cut with you possibly getting the smaller piece.

Any last words?

Would like to send a shoutout to God, first and foremost! To my kids, family and for all those that have supported me in the past and present. Would also like to send some luv to my peoples in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and in Pitt Co., NC…
