Spotlight Interview With Greek God
Greek God just dropped a fresh banger dubbed "Slo-Mo" and its loaded with a fiery flow and some fresh sonic tones with an ambient and atmospheric sound creating a deepening experience for the listener.
The single becomes addicting as the artists lyrical phrasing gets intense and unique and the track rolls into its catchy chorus section that feels like a radio single.
This track is great for the club and oozes swagger and style derived from Greek God's character as a rapper and performer.
You can hear the love for his craft on this track. He's got love for creating these songs and that comes through with plenty of life and energy.
Greek God knows how to write a song that you can grab onto quickly and not want to let go of. His songs all have edge but are all catchy in their own right.
The single follows another one called "Love You Not" which is honest and up front but also has that radio vibe to it as well all with out losing his ambient and drifting style.
With such killer singles dropped in the past months, we wanted to have a chat with the artist to talk shop. Here's what happened.
RAG: Okay let's start with "Slo-Mo". This track had a hard flow and a killer chorus. Where did this song come from? Greek God: Slow-Mo was an interesting track to work on because our main goal was to create a chorus that will amplify the track and recreate that feeling we all have when we party for so long that all of your senses intensify, everything is blurry and starts feeling like you’re moving in slow motion. And yet it feels like you’re barely getting started and still going strong. RAG: This was a great follow up to some of your other singles dropped in 2020 like "Love You Not". What artists really influence you? Who changed you? Greek God: Love You Not made me step out of my comfort zone. It was the first time I wanted to create a song that I can sing on and include some R’nB elements. The song talks about betrayal from people we least expect to and truthfully the reality is that everyone is moving at a different pace and it’s unfortunate that sometimes nobody can see your vision but you. Future’s “High Off Life” album really inspired me because in it he talks about being finally happy and high off his accomplishments and I think there’s a lot to take from that. RAG: How did all of this start for you? Greek God: I’ve always been involved in music in some form or another throughout my whole life. The idea of actually start recording music and putting it out there came to me last year when all of these ideas and songs started to come into my head and I needed an outlet. You can only bug your friends so much with your problems and thoughts haha. But in all honesty I’ve always wanted to get involved in hip hop and I’m glad I made that decision. RAG: You've released some strong tracks last year. What sort of advice would you have for other up and coming artists trying to get heard. Greek God: I’m the definition of a rookie but I have love for the craft and am really grateful to be able to do music in the first place. I say go for it. Create music, create art and express yourself because you never want to look back and think “what if?”. Naturally the more you do it the more confident you are going to become and it’s a beautiful thing looking back to your first material and recognizing the growth. First do it for yourself, your peace, happiness and therapy and then for the world. RAG: I feel like your fans would love to hear an album. What's next for you as an artist? Greek God: An album has always been in the back of my mind. I believe that albums should have a theme and a connection between the songs on it. As of now I am still looking for the right angle and subject matter in order to produce a big body of work. Singles are fun to do because they give me the freedom to play around with my sound and express myself in a little more variety.
RAG: Will you be performing live when the time comes? Did you perform live before? Greek God: I am so excited to be able to perform live in the future. As a hip hop artist I have yet to perform live and I honestly can’t wait. Shows and concerts are a pool of energy that can not be replicated anywhere else and I’m counting the days to that experience. RAG: What kind of things inspire you to write? Greek God: As a kid I grew up around all kinds of people and moved a bunch. I’ve met people from all walks of life and have friends on all ends of the spectrum. I also moved out and away from home at a young age so I had to grow and learn as a person pretty much by myself. I’ve always been on the move and never allowed myself to get too comfortable at one place. New places and experiences as well as being surrounded by new people will always inspire me to write. Also I try to manifest and project what I want out of life through my music. RAG: What are you doing when you're NOT working on music? Greek God: When I’m not doing music I try to connect and spend time with my closest people. My family as well as fiends that have became family over the years are the things that I try to focus my energy on. Oh and I watch movies. I love movies. RAG: Before we go, what would you like to say to fans of the music? Greek God: I would like to say that as a fan of the music, I am extremely grateful to be a guest in the house of hip hop and show my appreciation for the art. I believe that there is so much talent out there and that without people’s attention and support, doing this wouldn’t mean as much as it does. Thank you for all your downloads, streams and everything you do to make my journey special.
