Sacramento Rap Newcomer G-Mainey Delivers Hyphy ‘Angel’ Album

Co-signs from Cookies creator Berner and rappers such as SOB X RBE group member DaBoii have Sacramento rap upstart G-Mainey quickly ascending ranks in the Bay Area music scene.

Off the strength of the hype of his 2020 breakout hit “Better,” G-Mainey has pulled out all the stops for his 19-track Angel album.

Highlighted by high-energy bangers such as the Nef The Pharoah-leaning “No Sleep” banger and Berner assisted smoker’s anthem “No Mids,” G-Mainey insists Angel is his most advanced masterwork but ensures the project is still entirely geared toward offering his fans the sounds they love.

“This album challenged me to create something with substance, I feel like this project is what best defines me all while giving it that sound that my supporters love me for,” G-Mainey said. “I started working on this project at the beginning of the year, I took my time with each track making sure that the sound was perfected all while complementing each track with each other to make them correlate and make the tracklist feel connected.”

In addition to multiple popular 2020 releases including the club-ready “2AM” slapper, G-Mainey posted major streaming numbers on the board off the strength of his Care Package album — which has amassed well over 20 million streams to date.

Rising Rap Star Newby Talks New “Baked” Visual & Remaining Creative During COVID-19

Rapper and songwriter Newby is a breathe of fresh air in the music business. Coming fresh off of the release of his “Baked” video, he is gearing up for a full length project scheduled to be released later this year. Growing up outside of the states has always inspired him to go harder to become a mainstream act in America. He is on pace to become a household this year!

I had the pleasure of interviewing the Canadian rising star for a quick candid Q&A style conversation. As he discusses his new “Baked” video, remaining creative through quarantine and impacting the Hip Hop genre it is clear that he is up next to blow. Check it out below.

Newby Interview

What are some ways you have remained creative during quarantine?

Well when the quarantine first started, I decided to write a mixtape that I’ve always wanted to do..I don’t want to share much about it. I got to record it tho- I’m just not sure when it’s coming out. 

How did the COVID effect you differently not being from America as an artist?

The main thing I’m thinking about it my health, so that was one thing. The way Canada shut down tho!!! Nah- Canada locked down!! Things have been closed for a long time, and that really effects the live performance aspect of being an artist as well. 

Talk a little bit about the production of “Baked” and the video direction of the music video.

In general, I was going for a mashup of modern, meets anime…meets 90s retro/ childhood vibes!! Yeah! Basically that. If you watch closely, you can see some pretty cool throwbacks. 

How did your upbringing influence your decision to pursue music?

I have always been into art- all types! Perusing art felt most natural and yes it’s hard to make a living artist, but it’s also hard for me not to want to make art. I also make my own graphics and produce, direct and edit my videos! Not for bragging purposes, but I’ve just always been good with this type of stuff. 

I was working on a web series and heavily Pershing it for years, and I switched to pursue music. Making a web series involves a lot more people, equipment, time and money!! Doing music is kind of like a one man show in way…but not really..you still need to work with people, but it isn’t as straining as relying on actors to show up. 

How do you plan to leave your impact on hip hop?

I just want to have fun and be serious with it. I think the Narrative should change. I feel like hip hop and rap is seen as a black, aggressive, male dominated culture. 

When old people Tell me they’ve heard my music, they always tell me they don’t like rap, but they like my music. Bias? Let me know why?? Haha 

What is one thing people do not know about you?

People don’t know that when I’m serious about something, I’m serious! As a Taurus, I can agree that we’re persistent when it comes to our goals! 

And if you’re not into astrology, that same blurb applies, just take out the Taurus part. 

Who do you hope to work with in the near future? 

I’d love to work with some OG’s from my City…if not, I’m down to work with serious artists who are emerging from whatever city. They just have to know what to expect when it comes to Newby. 

When can we expect a full length project from you?

As an artist, I’m not ready to do my full length project just yet because You’re still warm Kong up to me. My album would be very cohesive and ultimately reflect me, at whatever time period it is, and what I’m going through/ overcame.  Maybe think of it as a caterpillar on its way to becoming a butterfly. That’s probably the beat way to describe it.  I’m just a little caterpillar at the moment!
