Check out I2G’s interview with FreshfromDE.
I2G is here with FreshfromDE, how’s it going?
It’s going good bro. More and more people have been noticing the music. For the past 2-3 years, things have been really picking up.
Tell me a little bit about your banging new single, High On Myself.
This song talks a lot about having confidence in yourself to the point of having a “high.” Sometimes when approaching life, we need to be self-confident to achieve what we want… that “high” is what keeps you believing and give you your drive.
Do you have any upcoming mixtapes or albums getting ready to release?
Yes, this song and my past “Aston Martin” single is all part of a project (produced by Roca Beats) called “The Ritual.” The entire project is dedicated to lifting you up and making you feel like the shit when you listen to it. Listen to it everytime you want to feel like the man and make it a “Ritual.”
Do you have any upcoming videos?
Yup, I have a “cinematic intro” for my video “Aston Martin” which is set to break a million views this year.
What are your current thoughts on the state of hip hop?
It’s definitely different than what it used to be. I think these questions can tend to be a double-edged sword. There are pros and cons to anything. As you know, more of the “mainstream” hip hop has gotten less lyrical and content driven, but at the same time were in a golden age for independent music.
What is currently playing on your playlist musically?
PANDORA – the Morning Jazz station
Do you have any shows or tour dates?
I have a show in Texas at SXSW the 15th of March. I’ll be performing with people like OG Maco, Grafh, Meyem Lauren, Termanology, Malik Yusef, and other talented artists.
What is your website information?

I’d like to thank I2G for the interview, I actually appreciate it. Shout out to the homies from coast to coast and across seas.
