Check out our Q&A with GlokkNine below:
JM: Before diving into questions tell our readers who you are.
GN: This Glokk9. Mr.BuckDaJack take yo muhfuckin sack. We on allat.
JM: How did you get the name GlokkNine?
GN: I was called 9 cause of other various reasons, but naw though my bousin gave me the glokk part cause glokks don’t jam. You know the double K for KillKill, shit that’s all you can do with a glokk.
JM: How did growing up in Florida influence your music?
GN: I wouldn’t say it influenced me, but shit I’m just tryna make a way off a path that ain’t there. You feel me? Shit, I grew up breaking into houses, stealing cars, allat. I teach you how to do allat.
JM: How would you describe your music to someone who’s never heard it?
GN: I’ll describe it as real shit cause it don’t get no better than me teaching you how to spin blocks, run down on a nigga, and I’m talm bout that struggle shit at the same time. So you got no choice if you in the streets other than to relate.
JM: What makes you different from other artists coming up right now?
GN: I’ll say I’m different cause imma give a different flow/different illusion every song. If you can point me out 3 songs that sound the same I’ll make a whole album bout them, real shit.
JM: What was the first moment you had where you realized you could make it in music?
GN: I really, to be honest, on my dead Grandaddy, knew when I was in jail. But I ain’t look at it that way, still don’t. I gotta paper I wrote my Momma from jail saying when I get out imma blow in music, but ion get bigheaded that’s how shit tumble.
JM: How does it feel having labels reaching out? Do you want to sign or stay independent?
GN: It feel damn good. It lemme know I’m doing something right at least. I’ll sign, but the check gotta be right, and I gotta feel yo vibe type shit. I kan’t just shake some and we don’t communicate or none like that.
JM: Can we expect any big features in the near future?
GN: Yeah matter fact expect big features, cause they on the way real soon. Got some with Almighty Jay, OMB Peezy, maybe Smokepurpp.
JM: Do you have any dream collabs?
GN: I wouldn’t say it’s a dream, but I’d work with Kevin Gates, NBA YoungBoy, Kodak.
JM: What do you have planned for the rest of 2018?
GN: I wanna drop another project, but imma just hit em with like 4 more videos then drop my project. On the new project a lot more melodies, a lot more emotion. Matter fact it’s called “Loyalty Kill Love.”
JM: Where do yourself 5 years from now?
GN: I see me living good with all my niggas, take them boys with me, have my Mama out the hood. I wanna travel, explore Dubai and LA. I see a bright future though. Just doin my thang.
JM: Any final words for wisdom for our readers?
