Tell us a little bit about yourself
Hi My name is Soloman Gehazi, I’m an MC from Wolverhampton, I been spitting bars for many years now. I put out my first project last year called knowledge lessons available for free download and I recently dropped a new project called the street Gospel mixtape also available for free download.
What made you choose the name?
I chose to call the project street Gospel because the project is a blend of Gospel and conscious Hip-Hop music, on heavy boom bap gritty street beats
What, if any, are the main influences for you when writing your music?
When I hear dope beats that I really like I just write whatever the beat says to me however it comes out is what it is, but in essence in regards to writing God is always the main influence in my music.
What would you say the Hip Hop scene in Wolves is like? Is there many events, artists, broadcasters?
Wolves is live for Hip-Hop there are a lot of artists but I would say there are only a select few that are really grinding hard to push there music forward and you can easily see who is serious and who isn’t. I think the main established wolverhampton Hip-Hop artists are the likes of LATE, Big dutty deez, Lost alliance, Young Weddez, Big boy strikes and Too classical etc. I would say the main man behind organizing actual Hip-Hop orientated events has got to be Tricksta.
What is the main theme behind your current release?
The main theme of this project is positivity, I make positive uplifting music that’s educational, fun, Gospel and pointful.
Your current project is over 20 tracks long, was it a lengthy process creating such an in depth release?
The project is 20 tracks deep. I recorded about 11 others tracks that didn’t make it on this one, I think 20 is more than enough. I don’t have a problem creating concepts and tracks, I’m writing all the time so I just keep it moving. The longest most time consuming part of the project is the mixing down
Who features on production for your current project?
I got some original production from a producer called the divine arkatek , beat busta and my boy D7.
Have you managed to get a chance to perform any tracks from your latest release live (radio or on stage)?
I performed a couple of tracks off the mixtape about 2 weeks ago at a show I did in Walsall, I got 2 more shows this month and I will be performing some tracks off the mixtape at those events to
Your current project boasts many different featured artists, how did you go about recording the tracks? Was you in the studio together?
Yea I got a lot of features on this mixtape, I found that my previous project knowledge lessons had very minimal features so I wanted to change that. I think all the MC’s involved on the mixtape bring something different to the table. Most of the recording with the different artists we did in the studio together, there was a couple of MC’s that we couldn’t get to the studio because of distance etc.
Have you got any videos on-line i.e YouTube, Vimeo etc?
Yea I a got a couple of videos out, there will be more video’s coming soon here’s the links:
Have you been featured on any UK broadcasters like SBTV/Link Up TV’s YouTube channels?
Yea I have appeared on some well known youtube channels like who’s the boss and Bigfingztv, I’m confident I will be on a few more youtube channels soon
Have you got any projects planned for the near future?
I have got a few projects in the pipeline a couple of collabo E.P’s with a few producers and rappers and a new mixtape.
