As of most recently the California native released the third installment to his Showgreat series and without any regard this talented artist has moved forward by using creativity and hard-work alongside the progressive and groundbreaking label ArtClub International
Earlier this year we spoke about Steven G and his movement but as of today we welcome him back and his long awaited project SG3 has been released , so while he visited NYC I got the chance to speak with Steven and it was an honor to sit down with this talented artist to discuss his latest album and more. So here and now get to know California native Steven G.
Robbie: What’s up? How’s NYC treating you so far?
Steven G: What up bro! NY has been treating me Great! It’s my first time here so everything is New and fresh to me. I’m excited to be here, and just grateful for the opportunity
Robbie: So from the start what and or who were the things that really stood out for you and inspired you to began doing music and taking it seriously?
Steven G: Growing up I listened to a lot of R&B. Specifically Usher. He’s one of the first people who inspired to just like music. Before I even knew I had talent, I knew I just loved music. So singing along to his songs was just a regular thing for me.
Robbie: How did you and Artclub International come together and so far what has it been like for you working with them?
Steven G: Myself and ArtClub connected because of my manager Tre Carson. One of his family members told him about me. He reached out to soon after and it’s been ArtClub ever since. Being signed to ArtClub has been a game changer. Having a machine behind you, is the best feeling ever. I’ve been presented with opportunities that I always dreamed about. It’s crazy!
Robbie: Overall you blend a great combo of R&B and rapping together but Would you say is the bigger influence for you is it hip hop or R&B and why?
Steven G: I wouldn’t say I lean towards neither. I think through out my day I tend to listen to R&B or sing R&B melodies. Then at some point I’m writing or spitting hardcore Bars. So I feel like I’m the perfect balance between the two. And that’s what I try to give my fans. That perfect balance between Rap & R&B.
Robbie: Now that SG3 is out what was it like working on this project ? What would you say is your favorite track from the SG series and do you think this will be the last SG?
Steven G: ShowGreat 3 is my best project so far. The energy behind this project was just Lit! New deal, new living situation, new car — just great vibes all around. Myself and my team were in the zone. Big ups to 15HunnitBoy, and J Classic. My favorite track would have to be “Handcuffs” & “Blue Hunnads” for sure! I’m gonna try to always keep the ShowGreat series going. I don’t see it ending anytime soon.
Robbie: As a growing artist what would you say has been one of the most important things you’ve learned so far as an artist?
Steven G: One of the most important things I’ve learned is that as an artist we go through so many emotions, but I feel like you have to get out of your own way. Trust the process & surround yourself with people who genuinely want you to win. Like Ma$e said “Stay Humble, Stay Low, and blow like Hootie” (lol)
Robbie: Lastly what can we look forward to from you in the upcoming future?
Steven G: You can look forward to new music Seeing me on the road, TV, modeling etc. I’m coming to take over the game period!!
