Giveon: "Young Money was Running Everything"💸
Giveon is the newest baritone singer on the block, and actually the only one with his sound and style. Originality is key when it comes to contemporary R&B, and the Long Beach native delivers on all fronts.
You may have first heard his voice on Drake’s “Chicago Freestyle” (the voice everyone thought was Sampha), but Giveon has more tricks up his sleeve. Most recently, he unleashed his de but EP titled TAKE TIME via Epic Records, proving he’s got what it takes to be one of the biggest artists in the industry. Each of the 8 tracks is a vibe, helping you get through quarantine on a brighter note.
King Ice caught up with Giveon over the phone to chat about who he thinks had the most iconic chain in hip-hop.
In your opinion, what hip-hop label had the most iconic chain?
I’m younger so whenever I came home from high school and turned on 106 & Park, Young Money was running everything. So for me, my generation was Young Money/Cash Money. At this time now, Atlanta and YSL are having a moment. It keeps switching every 5 to 8 years. My lifetime, I’d say Young Money/Cash Money, YSL and the whole Atlanta scene.
Anything else you want to let us know?
If anyone hasn’t heard it yet, TAKE TIME is out now. Listen to it, show your friends, let me know what you think.
