Gwapboy Dreadz has been laying the ish down for a min and G4R was fortunate enough to cross his path early on. He's from Jasper, AL known as Walker County but occasionally performs in Birmingham. Oh did we forget to mention his latest track Drugz is being courted for a TV/ movie show? We featured it a few weeks ago on our Music page. While conducting this interview we discovered he was part of a group called Gwap Boyz but later went solo. We've featured his collaboration before on a song, All Day My Life, featuring Gwapboy Pete (We were unable to contact him at time of this writing). G4R gets flooded with an enormous amount of music vids and have to choose a select few to post on site. Most have either potential or talent but rarely both. We've struck gold with this guy!
G4R has interviewed numerous artists across the globe and are especially excited when we come across new talent. Nothing like getting insight on the next new trend haha. As mentioned earlier Dreadz is from AL and not a lot of notoriety comes from there social media wise. One reason may be b/c they're only a stone's throw away from Atlanta. Why mention the ATL? When ya think of Atlanta entertainment... Ludicrous, Outkast and Kat Williams come to mind. Rightfully so they are legends of the game and help put that state on the map. However new legends and icons are formed when least expected in any given place.... enter Gwapboy Dreadz! His sound is refreshingly different and just what the public needs. He still resides in AL and from what we can see will take Bama from a football state to a music one.
