Check out I2G’s exclusive interview with Free5ive.
I2G is here with Free5ive, how’s it going?
– It’s going man thanks for having me
Tell me a little bit about how you got your start in music and who are some of your musical influences?
– Really it’s hard to pin point any specific musical influence. Ive been inspired by all types of genres of music. Different artist , different type’s of art. Opera’s and Orchestras. Sounds and Instruments. I love it all. As far as how I got started in music, I feel like I just started doing it “professionally” recently but I’ve used music as an outlet to express myself for as long as I can remember
Tell me about your new video and single, “Can’t Trust” featuring TYuS.
I- The concept just kind of happened. I tried to capture my trust issues with woman and frustration on why we couldn’t make things work before on both sides of the relationship. As far as the lyrics I didn’t necessarily write that song I really just went off of TYuS’s vibe and basically free-styled it. He created a harmony as a reference and I found the words. The video how ever came about when I gave the idea to my man Thomas over at Shiner Pacific Films. We together came up with a dope concept and treatment where we decided to use “Can’t Trust” as a a intro for my next single “Different” to kinda compare and contrast one another.
Will this single be on a upcoming mixtape or album?
– We are just trying to give the people what they want.. How my fans respond to my music will determine the next move.
Do you have any more upcoming videos?
– Definitely. I’m working on the visual for different now..
What are your current thoughts on the music industry?
– It’s hard to say. Im a critical thinker. I think about what music is today, what it could of been, and what it will be in the future. Music is a powerful tool meaning it impacts each listener differently. I just want to make my mark on the world and shift the culture in a positive way.
What is currently playing on your playlist musically?
– I hear all the music the masses get exposed too, but really I try to listen to myself. People I make music with. TYuS, Cassow, my man Jonny Cool, Eso Xo Supreme . Really the homies who creating the wave we on.
