I2G Is here with Samy Wats, how’s it going?

– Chilling man, smoking…

Tell me a little bit about how you got your start in music and who are some of your musical influences out there coming up.

– I’m 29 now but when I was 19, I had a homey who had a studio and after a party one night I went to go record and I’ve been recording ever since.

– I’m influenced by Michael Jackson, Tupac, Biggie, Snoop Dogg.

You have your new single entitled multiply. Tell me a little bit about the single and how it came together for you.

– My producer LD and I finished up a session early in Hollywood one night, and I didn’t want to drive back to San Diego in rush hour traffic so I asked if I could hang out for a while until traffic died down. We rolled up a blunt, and LD started messing around with a beat and I started to write a verse. Rome of Sublime With Rome heard the demo and jumped on board and ended up co-producing and writing the hook for Multiply. He and LD had the idea of having the hook be a female’s voice with a UK accent. Rome and LD were on tour with a band called The Skints in the summer of 2016 and met Marci who was the singer/keyboard/sax player of the band and they immediately thought of her. She hopped on it and it was a wrap! It’s out now on Fresh Goods Music. ( http://www.FreshGoodsMusic.com )
