“I’d rather compete than collaborate. We don’t need nobody to do what you’re trying to do, you can get this shit done yourself.”
Coming together for a special collaborative project, Young Dolph and Key Glock show no signs of slowing with a slew of dates across the US, UK and further afield under their belt. PAUSE sat down with the creative duo to talk music, labels, the industry & more.
How would you compare your fans in Europe to the US?
YD: No different, they’re fans. They me and I love them. They love Glock and Glock love them. It ain’t no difference.
So the US isn’t more turnt than the UK?
YD: It’s the same. We’re going to get different reactions like different places based on how much you be somewhere. If I never go there, versus I do shows in this place every four months, versus I only go this place every twelve months or every eight months, it’s like the longer you stay out of a market when you’re back the more they’re going to miss you.
Being an independent artist, we have to do so much and think for yourself and move for yourself. You have to know that shit, I can’t keep going to that market over and over again I’ve got to save that motherfucker to set it up for the big move. That’s what a major label going to do so if you want to work and move like a major label trying to do and you really about your business and about your artistry and you want your work to really go the distance with what you want to do you got to know this shit. You got to know the business you got to know what’s going on.
