We had the good fortune of connecting with Estevan The God and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Estevan, how has your background shaped the person you are today?
I’m from Houston, TX born & raised. During my childhood I was always around Houston culture the Screw Music, Candy Painted Cars, Jewelry, Car Shows. I come from a family full Entrepreneurs, Rappers, Designers & Entertainers and it really had a heavy impact on everything I do today. Even the title of my 6th Studio Album is H-TOWN PRINCE because of that heavy influence.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
With my music I’ve manage to create my own world. Guapo is my brand but I feel like 6 albums in I’ve created my own universe. I’m a Pisces so I’m always fantasizing and in LaLa Land but it’s satisfying to me to put it in my art. A lot of my music has samples from the Roaring 20’s, 1940’s through 1960s, A because I love old Hollywood Films. And some of my music is an old Hollywood film mixed with the Houston’ Sound and I call it Guapo Music.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Artis like Lil B the Based God, Lil’ Kim and even Amy Winehouse deserve a lot of credit because their music, talents & ideas shaped me in to always wanting to be myself. Always making sure that my music is relatable to the people that feel like me or have been through similar situations.
