Interview with GGB Mari

Tell us about yourself, who are you and where do you come from?

I’m GGB Mari, I’m from Gainesville, Florida. I like to make money and I hold it down for everyone who love me who I love back.

How was your passion for music born? Who are your idols?

I just always wanted to be a rapper since I was like 7 years old. There’s a video somewhere of me with my daddy before he died and I was a young jhit rapping a freestyle. Who are my idols? No one, I idolize myself because I’m strong minded.

What kind of music do you do?

I rap in a unique way, I put my real life into every track. From what I’ve been through in my past to what I go through and do right now. It’s all authentic.

What is the most important song for you? What message do you want to convey to the listener?

My most important song to me is an unreleased song so I can’t tell y’all. A message to my listeners? I would say I appreciate the support from y’all.

Why should a listener who doesn’t know you listen to your music?

If you never heard of GGB Mari before you missing out. Real art I’m no rapper. If you ain’t rocking with me I ain’t rocking with y’all, facts.

What are your future projects? Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?

I have an album coming out on January 22nd, 2024. You can go pre-save that from the link in my youtube bio. I put a lot of hard work into creating, recording, and putting this album all together. Where do I see myself in 5 years? In 5 years I see myself living large and already completed my mission by then.

Tell our readers a funny episode that happened in your career as an artist.

One time we was recording in a hotel room, and my homeboy, I call him my brother. GGB Istefan was no cap literally under the chair stuck too drunk to move shouting his adlibs into the mic from the floor for-real. That has to be the funniest memory I have as a rapper.
