I’m happy to say we are back once again for a brand new edition of the Faygoluvers’ Underground Spotlight. This time we get a chance to speak with a G-Killa and discuss the California scene, his latest release, some things he has in the works and so much more. Honestly, if I keep telling you about it there would be no reason to continue to read… and we all want you to keep reading.
So, get ready to take a look into the mind of the man known as G-Killa and if you’re not familiar now, you’ll understand why you should be by the time you finish. See you on the other side.
Johnny O: First, I’d like to thank you for taking the time out for this interview and welcome you to the Faygoluvers’ Underground Spotlight.
G-Killa: What’s up fam? Shout-out to all the fam thats been rocking with me from the beginning. Whoop Whoop.
JO: Being from Fresno and having been around the scene for a number of years, how have things changed over the years?
G-Killa: Over the years things are still the same theirs only a hand full of people in Fresno that rock with our type of scene. When I first started out I didn’t think anyone bumped Horrorcore but now I realize there are a few that rock with it.
JO: How would you describe your own personal sound and style of music?
G-Killa: I’d describe my style and sound as like a scary movie, and also mixed with some of my own personal thoughts in my mind.
JO: Being the type of artist you are, how has the music scene been for you through your career?
G-Killa: The Underground Music Scene has been good, obviously some doubters but fuck it thats how it is when your starting out.
JO: Although you started at a young age, was there a particular moment that really made you decide to start making your own music?
G-Killa: Man I can remember it clearly, my grandma had just passed and I was barely 14 years old bumping Twiztid and Insane Clown Posse, at that moment I said fuck it I’m doing this no more doubting myself 6-7 years later and I’m still here spitting the wicked shit.
JO: ”Welcome to your demise” is your first full length release, how would you say it differs from your previous releases?
G-Killa: “Welcome to your Demise” differs because this was the first time I had actually put together a full album, before this I had only had 1 single, and 1 EP, and I knew had to make this shit POP! Because of it being my first full album and I had already started building a small fan base.
JO: Where can fans, or perspective fans, looking to pick up the new album and even your previous EP find it available?
G-Killa: You can find my music on Spotify, iTunes/Apple Music, Google Music, Napster, and I believe someone even bought my album off of Amazon Music
JO: If we wanted to check out more from you, what would be the best place to find you online?
G-Killa: Instagram is the main thing I’m on, but that doesn’t mean you can’t hit me up on Facebook under G-Killa
JO: Though we discussed your new album, is there anything else currently in the works that you could let us in on?
G-Killa: There’s a couple things in the works, New Merchandise hoodies, shirts and maybe hats, and just got done collaborating with another artist in Horrorcore from Fresno goes by the name Mr. Dark, we had just did a track for his mix tape coming out soon. The tracks called “Bitch” and then also currently working on another full lengthen album called, “The Devil’s Advocate” dropping sometime in 2019 so want to find out more follow my Instagram and Facebook.
JO: Let’s say you had the opportunity to work with any artist, who would you absolutely love to reach out to?
G-Killa: Man well in the past I’ve reached out to Kung Fu Vampire and Gorilla Voltage, and Lex the Hex Master but at the time things weren’t the best for me personal wise so those collabs never happened but would definitly want to get those conversations up and going again. Also down the line I’d be down to try and collab with Twiztid, Tech N9ne, or Insane Clown Posse because they were the reason I got introduced to the fam, and this style of music.
JO: Is there a particular moment so far that really stands out in your mind as a major point in your path as an artist?
G-Killa: Major Points other then this article, damn probably all the interviews I’ve been able to do, and talking to all sorts of artists in the Underground that honestly never thought I’d talk too or that they’d even respond.
JO: Who would you say have been your biggest musical influences through out the years?
G-Killa: Fuck musical influences, N.W.A, Kung Fu Vampire, Chucky Chuck, KMK every artist in the Underground from California. Obviously Tech N9ne, Twiztid, and ICP.
JO: If we stopped you now though, what we catch you listening to currently?
G-Killa: Well currently I’m bumping Thanos by UGA their new album Anomaly 88 is my shit at the moment but usually I’m bumping my own music. Just cause why the fuck not aha.
JO: We all have hard times in life, but what or who do you find keeps you pushing forward and to keep going?
G-Killa: My mom on some real shit, she one of my biggest supporters. Myself, My homies. Mainly myself cause man in Fresno only 3-4 other people spit the wicked shit besides me so I’m trying to murder it while I can or until I’m 6 feet down.
JO: As we come to a close is there anything you’d like to say to the Faygoluvers’ family?
G-Killa: Shout out to the Faygoluvers Family for bringing us the up to date news of the Underground, and shout out to Scottie D and Johnny O for giving me this opportunity. Fuck who knows next time the interview might be audio or a face to face interview.
JO: Now before we go, let’s end this on a positive note with some shout outs.
G-Killa: Shout out to my graphic design team Bigger Picture Graphics, Shout out to my merchandise team SmartFit Clothing. Shout out to all you motherfuckas who been down with G-Killa since day one and Shout out to all the new fans to come. KEEP IT KILLA – G-Killa
