Hi GR3YWXLF! Can you start by telling our readers more about yourself and your upbringing into music?
Yooo! Sure thing, hello hi aloha everybody. My name is GR3YWXLF (pronounced grey wolf but spelt fancier). I'm from London town- yes I can't believe Boris Johnson is Prime Minister either. Sometimes I do music in between watching cartoons, curating memes and plotting world domination. Upbringing wise, I grew up on a diet of Gospel, Reggae, Grime and HipHop - I basically enjoy anything that sonically sounds dope.
What do you hope your listeners take away from your track “Killmonger”?
With this one, I want listeners to zone and be absorbed by that aggressive film score feel. The aim was to embody the complicated yet profound character Killmonger is, while underlining my own villainy streak. As a more cinematic Tarantino-esque drop in comparison to the last release, firing people up is the aim. Play it then go pillage a kingdom, or slap your boss. Whichever is applicable.
Who are your musical influences? Why?
I have quite a few musical influences so I could be here all day listing and explaining. But in no particular order - Childish Gambino, Frank Ocean, EarthGang, James Blake, Damian Marley and Mac Miller (rest easy Malcolm). As for the why, well because they make good music.
What’s your writing process like for “Killmonger”?
Whisky and thoughts about world domination mostly, with splashes of planned vengeance here and there.
When you’re not making music, what do you do?
It varies really. I'm an independent so constantly trying to learn new things. A lot of my time is spent trawling through Youtube, reading whatever I can get my hands on, forever figuring out how to do better. Mostly though I spend my freedom watching Cartoon Network and thinking about wings.
