We had the good fortune of connecting with Lil Gzy and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Gzy, why did you decide to pursue a creative path?
I started taking music seriously at the end of 2020. Everything I’ve ever made before that was more for self entertainment with my friends and just jokes in high school. I realized how talented I was when I dropped my first project “99 overall.” The mixtape brought tons of attention and supporters from all over the country, people that I’ve never met before were telling me to keep going with making music so I kept going. Now I’m at a point to where my music production is very consistent and authentic. I do all the recording and mixing myself. I’m blessed to be able to connect with music well enough to turn it into a money making hobby. I love to do it, and I’m eager to see where it takes me in life.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I had to stay consistent and just be patient. There was some hard times throughout the process where I thought to myself “should I stop making music?” Promoting the music was starting to get too expensive for me, but I had to figure out how I could keep getting good music out because everyone was listening and loving it and I couldn’t let them down. My closest friends motivate me to keep going everyday. I’ve learned so much throughout the process and I still have a lot to learn.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I’m big on scenery. Downtown for sure. The night lights and bars and clubs at night complete the vibe for sure
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Shoutout to everyone who supports me when I’m not around! Loyalty is everything to me. Without my fans and local motivators, I wouldn’t enjoy making music as much.
