Need to grab that EP. That Further Adventures of Walkman Flavor track he was on from Mind Fusion 4 (and I think Med Show 5) is one of my all time favorites. The way he sounds on that beat is fantastic.

Peace everyone!

 

I'm excited to say that I've been in contact w/ God's Gift and will be producing his FIRST ever interview.  It'll be published on my site.

 

From a fan's perspective, a lot of us have had questions about him and his career.  He's not been the most accessible of emcees in recent times -- he and I will be addressing that -- but I want to give you guys the opportunity to get some feedback on your questions. 

 

Feel free to drop some question here or directly to my email… arismendyh@gmail.com.  If you're going the email route, please use "GOD'S GIFT" as your subject line.  

 

This is a little something for the nerd in all of us… people who appreciate nuance and truly appreciate history.  He's not got the largest fan base nor most extensive catalog, but he does have quite a legacy… one many of us are familiar with from a distance.  Time to bring God's Gift to the light!

LOL… sounds like a question reserved for Kevin Spacey's character in K-PAX.  Judging by the conversations we've had thus far, IDK that this implication wouldn't be too far off.  Anywho, I can't wait to bring his story to the forefront.  A lot of his backstory is going to surprise you guys… I'm positive

Peace and blessings! 

I want to say thank you to all those still interested in what I write after all these years! I have been enjoying talking with Aris and we are sure to have an insightful and fun interview. Please hit him with ANY questions you may have. Also, since I'm on this message board now, you can get at me directly as well. Thank you.

First part didn't really deliver an interview just yet, for now I kinda learned more by proceeding to his website with bio and track descriptions. Did he complete that solo album that's mentioned there? I do look forward the rest of the interview, God's Gift fascinated me instantly on The Antidote.

I always get the feeling that when brothers say, they ran from fame or the industry its a lot more they want to add and say as to why, but choose not to. I ran from the movie industry because 10 old Jew"ish" men tried to get me to come into a dark room with some weird red light with the sound of children echoing, I declined work with the company and ran far far away and never looked back, somedays I think of all the money I could have made but I think I made the best choice for my sanity and for my soul.

PART 2

“Incisions came out after I already quit making music. When I quit I donated all my little underground stuff that I did, all the stuff that [was] unreleased, I donated it all to Kan Kick and told him anything you do … it’s all you, it’s all yours. I’m just happy that if it helps you build your own label, helps you build your own thing up, that’s enough for me.” ~ God's Gift

PART 3 of 3

 

We talk about what it would take for Madlib and God's Gift project in 2016, his relationship w/ PBW, and forthcoming projects.  

 

"We're more relevant than turnt-up deviants, asinine agents insulting our intelligence."  

 

"I am definitely taking shots at today's thoughtless emcees"

Wanted to wait until after posting all 3 parts to get to some of your feedback.  Please feel free to follow up w/ God's Gift directly here or via Twitter … he's pretty good –– not to mention brutally honest :D  –– with responding to inquiries.  FYI, my approach with this was conversational, not one of an interrogation.  The conversation itself serves as an interview, in my humble opinion, more so than any battery of questions could –– my sincere hope is that you guys enjoy the end result.  

 

I couldn't sleep last night knowing this was coming today.

That's amazing … hope you've enjoyed what you've listened to!

 

that tweet right up there says "july"


but july 1st isn't a wednesday

Yea … sorry about that.  Harmless mistake but a lapse nonetheless.  Have you had a chance to listen yet?  If so, hope you've enjoyed.

 

I always get the feeling that when brothers say, they ran from fame or the industry its a lot more they want to add and say as to why, but choose not to.

Very interesting concept.  I'm fascinated by it.  In some ways I agree with you.  Every creative has their own reasons for walking away from the things they walk away from.  I admire the fortitude it takes to make that kind of decision.  So many of us dedicate all of our energies to belong, compromising our souls (figuratively), in the process only to find out that ones intentions and the actual conclusion aren't consistent.  Some people see it coming and turn the other way.  Not saying this was GG's rationale, simply a general one that I've surmised.  

 

Thanks for listening, bro!

 

Great interview!

Many, many thanks!

GG stood out on all Lootpack & Crate Diggas Sextet tracks … there's no question.  I spoke about my initial experience listening to Soundpieces and hearing his voice on "Verbal Experiments" for the first time.  I'd heard the song a million times but something about how he broke the song down in our interview made it that much more brilliant.  Hope you enjoy parts 2 and 3.
