G Mack the Bandman is an up-and-coming emcee who hails from North Carolina. With over 100,000 views on WorldStarHipHop for his Kevin Gates-featured single, “Stop Snitching,” G Mack is consistently maintaing a buzz in the streets.
He recently spoke to rolling out about these things and more.
What is the hip-hop scene like in North Carolina?
Right now in North Carolina, [there are] a lot of artists coming up in certain areas, but I think [there] needs to be a lot more people coming together because there’s a lot of hatred and jealousy out there. A lot of people don’t support [one another] the way they’re supposed to be supporting each other.
Your single, “Stop Snitching” with Kevin Gates, has over 100,000 views on WorldStarHipHop. How did you end up collaborating with him?
Actually, I wrote the song when I was incarcarated. My manager got me connected with Kevin and he was feeling the record, so we did a feature.
Has moving from North Carolina to California had any influence on your music?
Definitely, because everybody looked at it as a big change for me and my music. Where I’m from, some people will never leave because they’re so used to being in the ‘hood, so I’m just happy to be doing different things at this point.
