Blueface checked in with the Cruz show to talk about his rise to fame in the last year, some big artists he’s been in the studio with and he even dropped an EXCLUSIVE on an upcoming collab.
Blue is an LA native and like many he says he’s been listening to Power since he was a kid. Up until about a year ago he says he never had any intention or wanted to rap until he got an opportunity to mess around in the studio with a friend. He heard himself on the mic and the rest was history, “After that day that was all I thought about. You know, eat, sleep and dream music.” He went from once being a janitor to getting a follow, and now a verse, from Drake.
The “Thotiana” rapper exclusively told the Cruz show that he has infact, secured a verse from Drizzy himself. With a smile he say “Uh yeah, I can’t say too much.” The whole thing started when the 6God followed him on the gram and like most business deals start these days, he hit in in the dm. “I was surprised he was a fan of my music, everybody don’t take to it. Especially the people that are like, real musical. You know, mogul type people. But you know, they’re coming around.”
When asked why he thinks some people haven’t caught on to his music he responds “Uhhh, they say I’m off beat. It seems like its been working out though. It seem like they listen more, they gotta listen to what I’m saying more if I’m not you know, don’t got the best flow”. His flow is what sets him apart though, he reveals he likes all his metaphors to have to meetings, word play is kind of his thing. Like in the lyrics to his single “Dead Locs” he says
“You niggas couldn’t see me on my worst day, I could sit here and talk off beat, My shit still slap like a pimp on his worst day”
