NAME: G Two
HOMETOWN: Bladensburg, md
CURRENT RESIDENCE: brooklyn,ny
Born in Bladensburg, Maryland, G Two has been rapping since he was a kid, turning a grade school hobby into an actual passion. His first mixtape came out in 2009, but it wasn’t until 2012, when he released Trillmatic — a project influenced by the Mason-Dixon line and its relationship with east coast and southern hip-hop — where his passion for music really ignited. G moved to New York in 2013 to really dig his heels in and pursue music.
Though it’s taken him a few years to sharpen his vision, his forthcoming release Neo-Noir is a body of work that conveys where he stands in black culture. His second original work, the project hones in on the film genre made famous by Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino. Neo-Noir also signifies the New Black; commentary on the progression of black culture.
For G, the color black is not only symbolic culturally but is the color he uses to describe his music. G says, “Black is endless in depth, black is passionate, black is strong, black is dark.”
