Candid interview with rapper MCG




How long have you been doing what you’re doing and how did you get started in the first place?
I’ve been rapping for 10 years I started when I was 16. It's a funny story my first rap was a dis track against some friends. We were goofing off and I like the feeling of rapping so I kept doing it and it became a habit. 
Who were the first influences on your music and style?
Childish Gambino, Mac Miller, XV, Tyler the creator, Curren$y. I'm really influenced by everyone who makes music but those guys were a big part of my growth.
In your opinion who is the most influential and successful artist in your genre today and why?
Its gotta be Drake, whether you like him or not the dude been on fire for over a decade. I gotta respect that.
What aspect of the music making process excites you most, and what aspect discourages you the most?
Making music and creating is the most exciting part for me. I always love when I come up with ideas or crazy concepts.
The business and marketing side of music is something that's very discouraging. I could put out my best song and it might not ever get heard by the right ears and that's sad. There is so much good music that gets unheard because the game is so saturated right now with artists. 
In your experience thus far, what is the best piece of advice in this business you actually followed? And one you didn’t follow, but now know for sure that you should have?
I haven’t gotten really good advice. Friends say follow your dreams and be persistent but if that was the key everyone would be successful. I’ve been just throwing everything at the wall and hoping something sticks. 
Which ingredient do you think is most essential in making your sound and style the way it is?
Life and living is the most important thing for me because I’m telling stories about my self and experiences. A dope ass beat always helps. I like to keep it low fi if possible.

ALY of MAKING CONNECTIONS RADIO SHOW is LOVING TWICY'S "Gimme Love" single!



Outstanding radio show host Aly of the Making Connections Radio Show on iHeart Radio and WDRB Media is loving Twicy's new single "Gimme Love" and has a lot of great things to say about the article and new single.  During a recent conversation with Blacktopia, Aly expressed her appreciation for the song by the Ghanaian based pop singer.

This is what she had to say.......


"Okay Twicy.... I see and I hear you. This hot single “Gimme Love” has a nice beat. Before you realize it you’re shaking your tail feathers. It’s the kind of beat that makes you get up and get moving. That video makes you want to travel to an island and just relax. Keep those beats coming." - Aly of Making Connections with Aly & Shay.  

True indeed!  

Listen to the popular Making Connections Radio Show hosted by Aly and Shay on WDRB Media!  Aly and Shay have lots of great guests and topics on the show and they certainly support great artists such as Twicy!

Ghanaian pop singer and songwriter TWICY's latest single "Gimme Love" has been blazing radio stations all across the content of Africa, and the music video to accompany the single has been featured on many major television networks in Ghana and neighboring countries.  In the latter half of 2019 the single also made a huge splash and impact on several American stations from terrestrial to internet live streams to podcast playlists, and one of the recent live streams to get behind the powerful new song by the Ghanaian super star is TRACK TALK RADIO the non stop independent hip hop live stream that runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week year round.  Twicy's single has even been played in rotation along with many of the other hit singles and tracks.

Fusion recording artist, lyricist and prominent businessman Reime Schemes who powers the newly talked about indie live stream is really loving Twicy's music.  Reime Schemes has also performed in many of the countries in Africa as well.  It's only a matter of time the two powerhouse recording artists cross paths and perhaps tour Africa together.
