Hey Geno! Welcome to BuzzMusic! We're so happy to feature your song "Bet Yo Life". Can you tell us more about the writing process behind this song?
The writing process was relatively simple which makes the success of the song so surprising I was in the studio working on my project Any Given Sunday with my homie Kryss and he played the beat for me and said I know you have gone like this. Immediately when I heard I said " That rapid-fire flow is what they desire for " like I said at the beginning of the song and I said you ready to record. The lyrics just came to me. This was probably the easiest song for me to write. I actually didn't write I just came with the verses everything about this just felt right.
How did you end up choosing to sample "You Better You Bet" by The Who in this song?
I didn't my homie Kryss from Knot Them Entertainment made the beat. It was just an idea at first and when he played it I just went crazy.
What's was the biggest obstacle you had when starting your career in the music industry?
Just getting started in general music is oversaturated now. It's more artist than it is fans honestly. I was having a hard time struggling between working jobs and my experiences in the streets and didn't really know what my next move was. On top of that, I have a kid that I'm solely responsible for so life wasn't the easiest I couldn't really see myself starting on the music path. And then I went to an event where people heard me in a cipher and the amount of support & love I got was amazing. I was literally getting invited to tons of studio's and people wanted to feature and work with me and things grew from there. It started in one night.
As you're someone who's proud to be different and stand out, who else do you feel like sticks out in today's music scene?
My crew, first and foremost I run with a clique called the circle that includes myself ChiseUp, Oplus the Prince, Ante Up, King Chaz, Tre Exel & Big Mel. I like the whole TDE crew Kendrick Lamar is one of the greats Ab-Soul & Jay Rock are really slept on. Da Baby is nice to me J Cole, Travis Scott it's a lot of people who I think are making new waves in music I can't even name everybody I like it's too many to name I'm really a fan of music.
It was great having you Geno! What's next for you? Any upcoming projects or shows?
Yeah, I got a show coming up with Sofar Sounds & I'm about to work on a new project with my homie Dre that's gone be major. Most Importantly my new album Pacino Season is available now on available on all streaming platforms. Besides that, I'm just trying to do bigger shows and be on platforms that can legit increase my visibility.
