We are sharing our recent interview with Guccibenx, a rapper, a singer, a songwriter and also a music producer from Africa.
Twist Online : Who or what inspired you to get into music industry?
What truly inspired me to join the music industry is my childhood lifestyle, my childhood was filled with much sorrows than I was even prepared for, lol, due to that, I started writing sad lyrics to make me feel good. All through high school, I was a low key songwriter. As i grow up, I started listening to lil Wayne and many more rappers back then, but who truly inspired me to say, ok am goon start recording my lyrics in the studio, it was xxxtentacion, ynwmelly and Guccimane.
Twist Online : Tell us about your recent release “Awoken Asylum “?
Awoken Asylum is my first release. Inspired by some top artists, I started making instrumentals for my tracks, keeping the bigger images in my head, knowing how I want all my track to sound and also the art behind the way I want my music presentation and interpretation should be.
The short length album Ep contains 5 tracks,
SLEEP OFF LIFE, which is about life and how the hood relate to life.
BITCHES SNITCH TOO, is a mix of my little life experience with snitches and also what happen to the top OG when it come to bitches snitching around the hood.
MY GRIND OUR GRIND, inspired by Lil pump, the track is basically talking about grind….. how to chase the bag lol.. with some mix storyline in it too. Lol it’s my favorite of them all.
HEARTBROKEN FLIRT, this song just hit me up like, ain’t you broken, and am like yea and it’s says then sing about it.. and I freestyle on the beat.
ASSAULT, it’s a rap, and y’all know rap is the lion of them all, viciously hitting your speakers with bass big enough to cause a damn earth quake.
Twist Online : Any particular track from the EP that’s your favorite?
Yes of course, as said earlier, my personal favorite is MY GRIND OUR GRIND and I also love the HEARTBROKEN FLIRT.
Twist Online : What kind of response you have received from the release?
Positive feedback, but way too few to be called a feedback. I will love to hear more feedback and reach more listeners. Because that will be the motivation for my next release.
Twist Online : What’s the best part of being a music artist?
Every Artist have their best part, but to me, those lonely nights of making instrumentals and also listening to my music amaze me A lot. Not leaving behind the joy and entertainment contributed to the world.
Twist Online : Have you set some goals to achieve?
Yes, proudly yes, why not, way too many goals but I will say just one. I want my music to be known because I believe I have a lot to contribute to this entire world.
Twist Online : Are you working on any new project?
Yes I am working on another project, it’s an Ep as well, and that will be my real work of musical art. And I believe if you believe in me, you won’t be disappointed.
