Disrupt Interview With The Ohio Native: Gvvdah

Disrupt Interview With the Ohio Native: Gvvdah

Tell us about your background getting to where you are today?

I was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio and moved around a lot. Eventually, I ended up moving to Phoenix, Arizona and that’s where I got into music.

Where are you from? When did you start music?

Mainly I was raised in the midwest. My brothers and I started music back in high school. But as I got older I decided to take it more seriously. I was kind of letting my lifestyle influence behind the music because I moved around so much as a kid. I’ve lived in Virginia, Tennessee, California and Arizona which is like my second home. SO I took all those places that I’ve been to and incorporated the cultures into a sound. I officially started music when I was 16.

What is the most challenging thing you have overcome in your life?

Fatherhood, and it’s still something I’m overcoming honestly.

How did you get into music?

Me and my brothers – they started off writing, recording, making beats and engineering but they were recording first before I even started rapping myself. Eventually I wrote a verse but I didn’t let anyone hear it and once I spit for my brothers they gave me such good feedback that I figured maybe I can really do this.

Are you currently signed or independent?

I am independent right now.

Who inspires you the most musically?

Big L, Pac, & Biggie

What do you want people to take away after listening to your music?

I want em to be entertained. Sometimes I don’t like to talk about too many serious topics because there’s enough serious things going on in the world. I wanna tap into other emotions other than struggle, sad, angry, etc. Happy, confident, motivated are all great things to tap into.

What is the purpose/reason driving you to pursue music?

I always grew up with a speech impediment, I was literally in speech classes from Kindergarten up to 8th grade, but after that I made a conscious decision to stop because I figured if I haven’t gotten the hang of it by now then forget it. So as far as talking and communicating with people I shied away from it, but I noticed that when I started doing music that I NEVER stuttered not one time. I ain’t meant to talk I’m meant to rap.

What is your greatest achievement as a musician?

Creating my own music genre. As well as creating a production group called M.A.R.S. which is an acronym that stands for “manipulating audio, revolutionizing sound”. We blended genres to create a new sound.

Do you produce your own music? If not, who do you work with?

I can produce for myself, I’ve made beats for people before, but now I mainly have in-house producers. I mainly work with L-Finguz. He produces a lot of my music as well as Paris Bueller from band camp

Who is one artist you wish you could work with?

Kanye West. Just because I feel like he would be on the same type of stuff I’m on from having experience both producing and rapping. You have a very different outlook on the record when you created it from the beat all the way to the vocals.

Tell us about any new music you have coming out?

I just dropped my new single with G Herbo called “Hammer” out on all platforms now. I also have a new single coming out soon called “Yeah” with a music video already done. Produced by L-Fingers.

What does a day inside your shoes look like?

If I’m not out of town, I wake up and get my kids settled. But I try to contain every day with something productive towards music. It can be recording, doing a video, doing a vlog, or even a short film which I’m getting more into now to expand my content beyond just music.

Anything else you want the audience to know about you?

“I am YOU”… we are a legion… when you listen to my music you probably going to feel like you’re listening to yourself. That’s why I try my best to tap into the emotions. Because even though we all different, in some aspects we’re all the same.
