Gxbriel – I Can’t Help My Sagittarius Ways [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

The three words to describe my sound would be energetic, fun, and gay!

How many beats do you listen to before you end up using one? Tell us a few things about your creative process.

The creative process is a fun part for me. I usually have a sound in mind for a song and then look at a catalog of beats to see which is close to what is in my mind. After I pick the beat, I find beats that fit in the same element. Thus, creating an album/project based on that. My debut album’s track list was changed five times before being satisfied.

Which is your most personal and honest lyric?

It was very important to me to show vulnerability on my debut album. A lot of artist are straying away from that and it sucks. I love getting to hear an artist’s story and what made them who they are today, so that is why I wrote “IS This What You Wanted?” and put it as the opening track. I also wrote “Memory Lane” and “My Heart Is Looking For Yours” to give more of an insight. These three songs are my most personal and honest lyrics.

Favourite rapper, lyricist and producer?

My favorite rapper is Megan Thee Stallion. She is killing the rap game and I hope to do a collaboration on a song with her one day. My favorite lyricist is Doja Cat. Her music is so transformative and she is one of the best. My favorite producer is “bckgrnd,” he produced “Pretty Ricky, Vol. 2” and “Fraudulent.”

Trap music came to rule the world, but at the moment the genre feels stagnant. What does the future hold for hip hop in general?

You never know what is going to dominate the rap world next. Anything can happen, but I feel like something big is going to happen. Something very transformative and groundbreaking. Shout out to Saucy Santana, he might be the one to do it!

In which state of mind do you imagine people might listen to your music?

I have a variety of songs that range in emotions, so it would be hard to tell, but I hope they are having a good time, laid back, and enjoying themselves as I tell my story!

One last thing we should know about you?

One last thing you should know about is I am a people’s person, if you ever see me out in public come by and say hi!

Thank you!
