Hailing from Los Angeles, California hip-hop combo artist GreekGod sings of stepping away from others and focusing on his own path in his newest vivid track.
Although he is a newer emerging artist, just starting out in the production industry his immense passion for music has been a part of his life since he was just a child and can be found in various musical shapes. Combining trap, drill, and traditional hip-hop, “Love You Not’ has a flow and musicality within which the background tech sounds work to enhance GreekGod’s sharp vocals and drive within each verse.
His natural flow for hip-hop is clear with the masterful crafting of emotional filled lyrics like “All these people telling me that I'm a changed man, guess we grew apart and I really can’t blame them” leading listeners to feel his sense of isolation from others.
Listeners can feel a slow growth within this track that adds some slight R&B style as GreekGod sheds light on his strong personal feelings and experiences in this catchy and lively track. “Love You Not” drips with swagger, sonic sounds, and some edgy vocals making it a must-listen!
With this ability to grab in listeners with his unique edge so early in his musical career it’s clear GreekGod’s love for music isn’t going anywhere and we can expect more killer tracks in the coming year.
What would you say was your inspiration for this track and how did that influence the musical process?
The inspiration from this track came after a conversation with a very close childhood friend. We were talking about where we were in life and how many people we lost touch with along the way. I realized that many people who say they are riding with you no matter what happens are not sincere. The hook of the song was an actual quote from our conversation: “ Funny how they love you but don’t want you up.”
Who would you say your biggest musical influences are within the hip-hop industry and how have they impacted your unique sound?
I would say one of the artists that really inspire me is Future. Future has been in the game for so long, evolved grew, and became a phenomenon in the hip-hop world of today. I would say that his style and approach to being different is very motivating to me.
What persuaded you to take the leap into the music industry about a year ago?
Since I was a kid I’ve always been involved in music in some form or another. I play different instruments and it just felt natural to me to start recording. I grew up listening to all different kinds of music but hip hop has always been special to me. The decision was very easy when I decided to get my voice and my sound out there.
Moving forward do you hope to stay within the music genre or pair together some other sounds in your singles?
Going forward I would like to work on my style and grow as an artist. I like the direction I’m heading and the kind of music I’m doing. I believe my style is the perfect sweet spot between drill, hip hop, and RnB.
What's a favorite quote or piece of advice that keeps you grounded?
I am very aware of where I stand as of right now in my career and the advice I actually gave myself is to always be your own biggest supporter. If you don’t support and love what you do, you will have a hard time convincing others to do so.
