N.A.B.: Hello and thank you for taking the time to do this interview with me. How’s it going nowadays?
G WARRIOR: It's going good for a young G out here. Progressing and moving forward every day in every way.
N.A.B.: How did you come to carry the name G Warrior? Tell us a little about yourself?
G WARRIOR: The name G. Warrior is my life put in two words. It’s actually Gods Warrior but I shortened the name to conclude any confusion about the type of music I do. I was raised in a very religious based household. My family was very religious and I was taught to follow God/Jehovah. Brought up in faith. At the same time I was raised in Philly where the youth are taught to be soldiers. To follow the gun. To be warriors. And those two ways of thinking make up my mental and how I perceive things. That’s how I got Gods Warrior a.k.a. G. Warrior. And that’s who I am as a man.
N.A.B.: You recently performed at the Elegant Hoodness Musical Program in Philadelphia. I hear you also won second place. How did that whole situation come into play? Would you recommend Elegant Hoodness to others?
G WARRIOR: That came into play through my managers. They set them up, I knock them down. It was a great experience for me. Just to meet other artist, A&R's and other important individuals in the background. It was a great crowd. A lot of my fans and family came out to support the art as well as me. And I just got on stage and did what I do best, Shine.
N.A.B.: It seems you have a great support group amongst your family. That is a tremendous blessing. Not all artist (entrepreneurs in a whole) have that foundation. I can imagine the joy in it. Elaborate some on how it is to have your family’s reinforcement at your biggest moments?
G WARRIOR: Aw man that’s like one of the greatest feelings in the world. To know you got reinforcements. People who are rooting for you no matter what. It’s a blessing, man. They know what I was blessed with and they just want to be there when the rest of the world see's it too.
N.A.B.: Let’s elaborate some on your craft. Give insight on the development of your latest release.
G WARRIOR: My latest project I'm working on is entitled "Everything You Not". It's all original work. About 90 percent of the beats on it are mine. So the sound and flow of the entire album will be of my talent. I'm expecting it to be finished fall of 2013. Until then I will continue to keep my fans occupied with new videos and music. I do however strongly urge Hip Hop lovers to go and listen to my earlier mixtapes on hotnewhiphop.com. Just search G.Warrior or my mix tapes entitled "Listen or Die" & "Bars on Deck".
N.A.B.: Your stage performance went very well. Talk about the importance of stage performance and how you go about putting forth a good one.
G WARRIOR: Performances are extremely important. Too many times have I seen artist who get on stage and give a whack show. When people pay money to see you, you should make sure it won’t be the last time. I practice and work hard on my performance skills. My performance coach Sprite` makes sure I’m giving 100 percent whenever I step on stage. I make sure I'm tired by the end of my show, (laughs)!
N.A.B.: Is there anything you would like to elaborate on?
G WARRIOR: Music is still about talent. No matter how much they want it to be a popularity contest. With that being said stay tuned for my team Hope Muzik a.k.a. HMABG. As well as BP entertainment. Nothing but real talent is what I'm associated with.
N.A.B.: Give us heads up on how we can stay further acquainted. Social networks, website(s), etc..
G WARRIOR: Make sure you’ll follow ya boy on twitter @215Warrior. On facebook just search G.Warrior. And on Instagram, name: Generaltabb.
