This is the average to savage podcast with Paul Garno. Everyone in anyone, athletes, sweats and much more. WHAT'S UP, everybody? It's a ninth episode of average avage podcast. I got every gibbons on the podcast. What's up, Everett? What you doing, guys? Good, good, good. So let's just jump right into it and tell us a little about yourself. So I make music. I just really an album that's available pretty much everywhere. Yeah, I don't know if you listen to itself? Yes, yeah, Ye, give a lot of good feedback on that stuff. I'm from Hampshire actually, and I make more like hip hop music. Yeah, so how did you? How did you get into rapping? Pretty much like every other white kids? First, yeah, I think really high school and that was school. Like my Homie del Kinetic actually on the album I just dropped. He was he was like right now when he I think he's like a softomare or something, and are just sitting next to him and like economics class or something. I'm just watching this kid right and I like always kind of written lyrics, but wasn't necessarily. I hid pop and we're wrap, or say. I think we were more like wrapped and thought to be honest, like yeah, kind of just start bouncing sounds and idea off each other, like writing shit in basement and I still make music of them Thursday. So that's pretty much like I'd say high school when we kind of like started being, my God, yeah, rappers, but yeah, was a lot of like I feel like it was like west crowd of like we're actually like making beats and Shit, and I just feel like we had a pretty pretty cool thing going then. Like della going off to college, so I kind of had to like make music by myself. Well, use that love.

He was at college and I put out like some music. It's not even on the Internet. Why don't drink, because I don't really fuck with it like that, but I kind of I just kind of did it to make sure I was still homing in on like mastering my craft and not, you know, staying stagnant because my homeie wasn't there. Just I started just writing a lot by myself, you know, on finding places to record, and then, yeah, like you ended up d up making music with him down in Boston while he was at the our institute. Should come and do my every since really just got so when was it when was it then you like that you started taking it like serious. Like what year I started taking always high school. We had like a group in high school that was like I graduate two thousand and eleven, but we're going to start like two thousand and eight. So, but that wasn't like quite too serious. It was like we were just doing to me, we were were still we all love music, we all love making hip hop, but we didn't really know how we were going to be received or perceived. I guess we kind of skeptical about it. You know what I mean, because it is what it is. So how about this? When did you like know that? You were like, I want to do this like for a career. Basically, I'd said probably shoot thousand twelve, right after high school. Really, yeahs. So what what were you say? I was just saying, yeah, probably two thousand and twelve. We were. That's when I price started taking it for most serious, you know for sure. So what would you say? Your style of wrapping us? A lot of people compare me to like southern artists actually leave or not like like big influence, like by like outcast and ship of my style is probably more, you know, consciousness and shakes just try and be sope as possible with the lyrical like I'd like to get Shit,...

...you know what I mean? I really do like to be honest, I got more of an intricate type person when I'm listening to music. I like fucking dope stories and Shit. Yeah, but I've really been trying to, you know, work on the other side of the spectrum with like the turnout trap shit as well, like kind of you know, like I listened to my old stuff and it was like what, kid, it was overdone, like to way too fucking trying to be technical and shit. It's like I feel like now it's like I feel like it's a nice blend of like underground, like old school hiphop and like kind of like the new school shit as well, you know what I mean. Like it's a nice feel of the whole album to is like bunch of different Jews. So when it team to like picking your name, you just stuck with your regular name. What, why did you do that? Over, were picking like a stage name. So, like my nickname is go. Everybody calls him Gub, like Guvb. Yeah, and because my last name, kid is obviously and everybody caught. Everybody. I calls them and Gubby and shit like that. So I kind of I like that nickname, but I know, like it's kind of there's almostly, just kind of like I'm gonna do music under my own name so people take it serious. Yeah, you know. Yeah, like when I attach my fucking dog given name to it, people are going to start respecting it a little bit. Yeah, I'm just out of respect for the person. You know, where is like if I was like going out as like some crazy fucking name, yeah, like an alter ego shit, and it's like I don't want that, I want to be talking real you know. He's like you ever hold myself to that? Yeah, for sure. Your name kind of like actually like sounds famous every game now. Yeah, yeah, I've had people say that. Like my name sounds like a presidential name. We remember some real lady was like ever givens. She's likely not...

...that. I don't think I could do that. Hey, down the road, maybe you'll be in movies too, and then you want to change your name like these rappers like they give they put the credits in there and stuff. Yeah, right, pretty much for sure. So walk me through the process of what it's like to record a song, like going to the studio, like writing, etc. So I guess obviously you want to do most of your work out of the studio. As far as writing knows. I know a lot of kids want to come in like freestyle, and you're not going to get an engineer to do that. That doesn't make sense. Yeah, for sure, for two hours, unless you freestyle and or Mike letting you do that. He's just making money off you know what I mean? Like, yeah, I guess you get your first wherever it's coming from, whether you're making it or you're buying it. You know what I mean? No Steel Beats. Get the right to it, you know, practice it, and then wherever your studio is. Pretty much like I was driving a wooster, which is like pretty pretty far away from me, about an hour go see my homie Brian, who's my engineering but brill yeah, but we just recently built a studio off your window. It's called Tom Green Stud udeos. It's me, Fella look boy, Joey and thrilled, engineer, and a couple of the heads and man. But we got like the studio now. So it's not so much like driving, but I mean before I was driving a wooster and like snow storms and Shit, which sucks, you know what I mean? I I drive there, I would drive back, so I was going into sessions for like seven, eight hours, you know what I mean, like real long sessions because I was try I didn't want to make that drive. But, you know, twice a month. So yeah, that's kind of like how you know, you got to trust your engineer...

...and that final products usually is a lot better than what you even had in mind. So, if I'm sure, I'm pretty I'm pretty lucky. I got I got a pretty like easy, not easy, but I got a we got a good system going right now, where we're at, you know, and even got you got fat flowing in. We have, you know, lyrics are just going, you know what I mean. We're constantly writing and shit so constantly forming. So it's kind of like they overlap to you know. I mean you'll do a song, you'll get a three quarters of the way done and then you start recording a new song. You know what I mean, because at some point you got to go back and touch them all out. Yeah, I know, especially you know, it's like a perfection. Yeah, nowadays, I mean a hot song could last a week and then people forget about it. So it's like crazy. Yeah, that's like that. That's the fucking true. So the People's attention stands now. Everybody was like asking there, like why do you drop pomegran music? Why'd you drop your album the same week before drake? Why wouldn't you wait? I'm like you, because I'm not fucking famous, like I'm going to drop this get and people are going to listen to it for a week, you know what I mean, if they can do you know, and like I got people that constantly listen my shit. That's great, but the people, the tensions man for just so short that. How do you how do you plan to stay Reutt you know what I mean, like other than, you know, singles. You got to keep dropping singles. The content needs to just be consistent, you know, I mean for sure, that's that's what we're all really working on, the whole team, because it's like that. That's half the fucking battle, and the other shit is business. Yeah, yeah, for sure. So let's let's go right into talk about your new album. Learn music is fifteen tracks on it. They've got fears by like Michael, Chris, Del Kinetics, Joey rocks plus one. Tell you know,...

...my buddy Manuel to saint eats amazing a bunch of features on it. It's like kind of one of the first projects that I really I reached out to. People are like Yo, I got this like kind of like tailored for your field. You know what I mean? Like, yeah, I didn't. I've never really I've done features this shit before, but not like not as many as this for this album. So that that was why I about it. And we the whole, like Palma brant, a team, just kind of came like, like I was saying, I kind of had all these songs overlapping and I had them all together and he's something like sound like something like it isn't just a bunch of singles. You know what I mean? Yeah, sure, and so I started chipping away at some of the songs and making songs. I was was a long process. It wasn't like I sat down had the more written at the same time. Look collective, staying on any P was py fucking making a song every couple weeks. Yeah, so we got that dumb my buddy Brian girl again, this kid, kid under the air to the mission master of everything week and he did. He's US delicaetics, cremate and dearly hooks me the fuck up. He helped me write the fuck out with that. So I'm pretty grateful and everybody's really into the reactions and good for sure. Yeah, it was too elegant. Yeah, man, appreciated. I got more music on the layer as well, but I really just I think with that project of I'm green. I think it's like you really got to listen to a hunt of back because it's a it's definitely gonna like. I still listen to it and I'm like, damn, that that was cool, like just just a box of it as and flows of it really fucking that's why I like to emphasize them albums like Song Placement, you know what I mean, and that type of Shit,...

...not so much just banger after Banger, like you want. You want Bangers, but you also want to have the album be more than just a bunch of singus. Like I said, I feel like that did that week. So actually. So what's the meaning behind the pomegrant? Man? I was just writing. It kept coming to me, like I think it's track fourteen. It's called three thousand and seventeen. Yeah, and says it's sitting on the contes pomegrants and grapes, and I just wrote that and I was just like that was that's a that's actually really old verse and I was I was really thinking about it and I started just thinking, like it really isn't a fucking six fruit and I'm like, Oh shit, it's got granted right from you answer granted state. Okay, that was kind of like the first thing I was like. That was like the first like kind of Oh, that's kind of a cool little thing about it. Sorry, I like started researching, like what the fuck? What was like the symbolism behind? I like symbolism, want and I was like what's the symbolism behind like pomegranted with that Shit, when it's like pretty much relevant like every major religion and like mythology and it's like the forbidden group, it's everything. But I was like damn, this is dope and and I was as I was making it the album, I just like I kept thinking, like what should I call this? And right I just, like I said, the pomebranted thing, like that relevance with the Granite Station. I just kind of like thought about it, but I didn't I didn't think like right off the bat, like Oh, that's the that's the name of my album. I just thought I got that's cool. And like, the more and more I thought about this has A. I'm trying to think, like what would I like encompass all these songs, or what would I call it? Like A pomegrant music? That's just fire. It's like it's just it's just cool. It's unique for like the symposm behind the fruit itself. Yeah, you know, and it's like one fruit with many seeds. So it's like kind of like we are all one still when we're all connected. Yeah, Yeah, the pomegranate collective is...

...just going to be pretty much anybody who work with you know what I mean. We're not going to it's not going to be a click, it's going to be a fucking movement, you know what I mean? And everybody, everybody's down. As long as you fuck with you. Anybody there? It's dope. That's that's a cool that's a cool thing body. Yeah, for sure. So how about you feel like spitting something for US real quick? Yeah, yeah, something right here. I'm not slur a little bit. Some nursing to hangover like a bitch, but sorry, this is something on the roof. Yeah, made it so I right to give me one moment of them getting right to it.
