Hey! Can you start by telling us about yourself and how you created your stage name Kiid Gaara?
Im a 19 yr old melodic rapper/ Song Writter from Arizona, Born and raised. Im a Type 1 diabetic and ive been since the age of 8, i grew up with an abusive/alcoholic father but now i just live with my mom, lil brother and sister. I look up to her a lot because shes played both roles in my family shes very hardworking and has taught me to never give up and always be myself. How i got my stage name??? First off Ima huge naruto fan and came up with the name because i felt like ive always related to Gaara the most. I say that because in the show Gaara as a child was treated wrongly and viewed as a monster cuz he was "different" from the other kids. Just like me i was picked on and pushed away from others because i was a diabetic and viewed "differently" cuz the other kids thought they would get sick if they fucked with me. Secondly growing up ive always felt like no one loved me, thanks to my father, so i learned to love myself and thats where the name Gaara comes from. The name Gaara in Japanese means a demon loving himself or a self loving demon, so therefore that is another reason why i chose the name. Lastly for the "Kiid" part i came up with that because one everyone else is "lil" sumn and no one spells it like i do and two ive felt like its different from everyone else
Who are your musical influences? Why?
If had to choose my top 3 it be Migos, Thugger, and Trippie Redd. Ive been a migos fan since they dropped there single "Bando". Just the way they rap, how they flow, how they say things and how they make there music is crazy to me. its different and not only did they start a whole new way of making trap music, they each play a role in there group and dont get enough credit for it. Personally this new generation sounds like the migos and they are best group in the game right now. Also there fashion is CRAZY tooThugger to me is like a father i wish i had in my life. The mans does not give 2 fucks about what people think about him. Just like the migos he started this new wave of music to where you have to read the lyrics to know hes saying and just the way he sounds too ive noticed that people sometimes find annoying but i LOVE IT. not only is he a inspiration to me through music but hes also a HUGE fashion icon to me and i wish i had his drip, his style is unmatched and thats where i get most of my style from.Trippie Redd is sumn else when it comes to music. The way he makes his music and how puts is his emotions into his music and how he sounds just relieves my anxiety. ive never connected and felt someones emotions more when it comes to music and it inspires me to make music like that so people can relate and feel the same way as i do. Ever since he was "lil 14" ive wanted to develop a sound so unique like trippie and thats where i get my inspiration from when it comes to singing and yelling in my music. That being said if you listen carefully to my music and how i do things i would say i get my flow and structure of my music from The Migos and my melodic style, sound and style from Thugger and Trippie. So if you would take all those arist and you put em into one, you would get Kiid Gaara.
