MISI Entertainment Interviews Gudda Gudda [@IMGUDDAGUDDA] from Young Money


Interview

MISI: How’s it going Gudda? Thanks for taking the time to interview with us; it’s definitely a pleasure.

Gudda: Everything’s good

MISI: You have come a long way from Sqad up how has life changed now that you are a Young Money artist?

Gudda: Squad Up was like straight hood gritty shit; not taking away from Young Money, but Young Money has different avenues from kids to singers, females, & R&B. They have all types of different things going on.

MISI: Tell me three things about you and your music that separates you from other artist in the industry?

Gudda: I’m versatile artist. I really stick to making nice, street hip hop and i take my time putting out my tapes.

MISI: You are currently working on a new mixtape coming soon and then you will be working on your debut album. How do you prepare for writing for a mixtape versus an album?

Gudda: There’s no real difference except deciding on which producers can capture the feel of how I hear the album sounding.

MISI: Lil Wayne has dropped a successful album with “Tha Carter lV” Drake and Nicki Minaj both have also dropped successful albums. Do you feel any pressure in following up with a successful album?

Gudda: Nah, no pressure at all. I make sure my music is top grade work before I even tell anyone about it, plus YMCMB will never release anything that isn’t up to par, so no pressure because we take our music seriously. And if the music is real people will feel it.

 

MISI: We are all fans of Hip Hop music however do you feel Hip Hop still lives throughout the music industry?

Gudda: I feel Hip Hop never died, it’s alive and on its way to be the top genre in the world.

MISI: If you had the opportunity to work with any artist in the industry who would it be?

Gudda: I feel like I’m working with some of the best in the game now, but outside my camp I would have to say Hov, Jada, Budden, and Wu Tang.

MISI: If you had the chance to get with any celebrity female in the world who would you choose?

Gudda: Ummm….Nicki lol. Nah, thats my homegirl. I love her like family, but I would have to say Rihanna #heyboo lol.

MISI: If you weren’t rapping what field would you most likely be working in?

Gudda: Whatever gets me money. My dream wasnt to be a rapper. I just happened to know how to rap, its a gift. I rap my life stories and experiences, nothing more nothing less. I’m a hustler. I grind for every dollar I make, but with the money I have been seeing from this music shit, I’ve really been getting into and learning a lot about real estate.

MISI: What inspired you to be an artist? Who are your musical influences?

Gudda: I never thought of myself as an artist. I just started messing around with it and Wayne must have heard something in my music because he’s the reason why Im rapping today. My influences would be Cash Money; niggas were real. They came from the same beginnings as me. Gotta respect that and they hustle.

 

MISI: If I were to turn on your iPod right now, what 3 artist would I see in your most recently played list?

Gudda: Well, the first artist off hand would be Cash Money; niggas were real.  Next I would say Short Dawg and Wayne.

MISI: What kind of advice can you  give an artist trying to pursue a music career?

Gudda: Basically to stay focused and grind hard. Nothing goes unnoticed if you keep at it.  Sleep when you’re dead. Hustle and Grind. It pays in the end.

MISI: Lastly, are there any shout-outs that you want to throw out

there?

Gudda: Yeah, first I wanna shout out the team YMCMB, CeCe Vance (Publicist) and the whole Vance NyCC, and of course the fans.

 

Biography

Carl Lilly Jr., born March 11, 1983 in San Jose, California but raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, is better known to his fans by his stage name Gudda Gudda. He is an American rapper who was given the opportunity to showcase his talents under the guidance of Hip Hop superstar Lil’ Wayne by signing to his non stop hit making label Young Money Entertainment. He first became acquainted with Lil’ Wayne when he was a member in the group Sqad Up, but due to complications beyond any one’s control, Lil’ Wayne saw it fit to extend an invitation to this naturally talented artist to become a member of Young Money.
Gudda Gudda released his first solo mixtape, Guddaville, in September 2009 and had previously released one back in 2008 with rapper Lil’ Flip entitled Certified. With the success of both mixtapes, his career has only taken a turn for the best. From his heavily anticipated LP to him touring with Lil’ Wayne on his “I Am Music 2″, it is not hard to see that there are many great things in store for Gudda Gudda in the near future.
