” Over the years the hip-hop scene has grown from its traditional club music. I think we’re just waiting for one huge break out from an artist to set the city on fire to bring Baltimore back to the limelight, and I’ll be one of those artists.”
Check out the interview with Ghost Da God exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: Where did this all start? Tell us about your journey in the entertainment business.
Ghost Da God: I started as a young kid who fell in love with music early. I started rapping at 17, started recording at 19, and have been doing it ever since. My journey has been up and down- I think it’s like that for most artists.
What would be your biggest piece of advice for the young kids out there trying to do what you do?
Keep pushing follow and your dreams. Get a team of trustworthy people and shoot for the stars
What are some of the hardest challenges and tasks in your position?
I think the hardest thing is balancing family and music. To be a professional in this business it takes a certain amount of dedication so that can have effects on family and friends
We all know the entertainment business is very tough, but what do you find is the best way to promote and advertise your music?
Promotion is something has no set amount. You can spend a thousand on promotion and not have any movement with your music or spend fifty dollars and it does wonders for you. so I would advise to get with professionals and get a budget to find the best marketing plan for you and your music .
Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans?
Baltimore is a tough city. Over the years the hip-hop scene has grown from its traditional club music. I think we’re just waiting for one huge break out from an artist to set the city on fire to bring Baltimore back to the limelight, and I’ll be one of those artists.
Where do you see yourself a year from today?
Haha, with the help of Skilly Magazine I planned to be the best new artist next year.
Who and what were your biggest inspirations? Who do you look up to in today’s world?
Nas, Ghost Face Killa, and Prodigy of Mobb Deep among others. I want to bring the flow of great lyricists with the business knowledge of Jay-Z and Dr. Dre.
How do you feel about the music coming out today? Do you like it?
I think the music today is cool it’s for the kids as it has always been I feel it has lost a little of its essence but that what I here to do restore the feeling of real music.
