Welcome to BuzzMusic G Phatz! Talk to us about your single “Knuckle Up”. What was the initial vision you had for this record?
I wanted to capture the feeling that most people have when they have been lied to or done wrong in any form. This is really a fuck you anthem from the streets to anyone and everyone from anyone and everyone, that has not kept things.
What would you consider the most challenging aspect of creating “Knuckle Up”?
I didn’t find anything challenging about the track itself. I needed to keep the message simple and to the point. While also expressing my true feelings in a way that could be received in its purest, and most direct form.
How would you describe your songwriting approach to your single “Stay In My Lane”?
Really just vibin to the fact that you don’t have to be what your not or project what you not. That you can stay true to you, and still get to where you need to go. I think too many people today, want to imitate what works for other people. It might not necessarily work for them but they see it as a lane to achieve their goal. When writing this track I wanted to touch on being yourself without compromising for anything or anyone.
What was the biggest inspiration for the song “Stay In My Lane”?
As an artist I observe a lot, I guess you can say that an artist is a reflection of their environment. Now that we are more connected through social media our environment is the world. “Stay in my lane “ is me saying I do me, regardless of what everyone else thinks I should or shouldn’t do.
From your artist’s perspective, what are some major elemental differences between both “Stay In My Lane” and “Knuckle Up”?
Like fire and water.
“Stay in my lane” is a more laid back with a conscious message.
While “Knuckle Up “ is in your face and confrontational.
“Stay in my lane “ is like chill, I will do me and you do you.
“Knuckle Up “ is like f*ck you
What’s next for you G Phatz?
