This week we show support for Glad2Mecha!!! Peep the interview and support the artist!!!
1: Who are you and where do you rep?
My name is Glad2Mecha pronounced "Glad to meet cha". Emcee/Producer/Engineer & Co-Founder Of "Building Block Records". I was born and raised in Glendale Az.
2: What got you into Hip Hop?
Well I grew up in the 90's, so it was hard to not have Hip Hop in my life. yo MTV Raps, Lyricist Lounge, Kid & Play, Class Act, Who's The Man
all are big influence on me, the culture took me in.. the movies the lifestyle the music ..
I went to my first show when I was about 7 or 8, Power House 4 ha..ft. acts like LL Cool J, Kid and Play, and I even met Grand Master Flash ,so I just have loved the culture since a child. From a very young age it was a must that I would become a part of it ..
I use to street skate in my school days, and Hip Hop was the music in every skate video back then .. so the music had followed me forever.. I had a real bad fall and broke my arm out of place...needed surgery real bad, so after the operation on my arm I changed my profession to an Emcee.. got tons of shit for it from my skater friends ha..but this is were I have ended up..
and I have made more achievements now with Hip Hop then I ever did with Skating
and to set the record straight I rollerbladed, I was never a skateboarder.
3: How long you been making music?
10 years plus, in the dungeon blood sweat and tears my dude lol..
