This isn’t the typical track you think of when you think of a Florida raper. Uzi definitely has his own style of music. If this is just the intro to his album, I’m eager to hear what the rest of the album will sound like.

When you hear people talk about Corpus Christi, TX(my hometown), you probably think Selena. As much respect as I have for her, there is a new name leaving a mark on our city. Corpus native, Green, is making big moves with some big names such as Kevin Gates. Green has us impatiently waiting for “Bank Money”.

After the recent announcement of his deal with Lu Diaz Music, Famez releases “Take Control”, a somewhat pervasive track that manages to flaunt a collaboration with the talented Dashius Clay and also background vocals from J Reyne.
Preparing for the upcoming release of their deput EP Up In The Clouds due this fall, NYC-based funk/soul band SugarBad has made available “Just Can’t Stop”. The female fronted group features the intensity of a rock band and anchored by the sound of funk and soul.
Today I interview Joose from A.G.O. He gives us some information on is upcoming album, background information on his latest project titled Cruise Control, and tells us about his beginnings in A.G.O.
Where did it all start for you?
It was all a journey, as a kid I had to grow up fast. I remember going to DJ Mozaic’s crib, he was producing some music on fruity loops, that’s when I became mesmerized with music and wanted to become an artist.
Why did you decide to make music?
I wanted to give people an outlet. I feel like music is a place that you can venture to inside your brain.
How did you become affiliated with A.G.O.?
We all group up together, and went to the same high school in Michigan. We were all involved in music at young age.
How did you guys come up with the name A.G.O.?
During some early recordings with Waldo and Sango, Waldo said it in a verse so we just decided to call the group A.G.O. (Astronaut Gang)
What’s it like working together in A.G.O.?
It feels great, no stress! When they’re on stage, I get hype. It’s cool to be a fan of the people that you work with cause’ it makes you better.
Why title your project Cruise Control?
With Cruise Control, I wanted to capture my life. I wanted to put out some good music that people could listen to, something positive.
What about your album?
I’ll be dropping random songs until the album, and then drop the single for the album.
What’s the story behind Cruise Control?
I just wanted to write music that felt good, there’s no real story. It all came naturally, just wanted to create something that felt good, so that’s what I did. All the music we make is organic, it’s based on feeling and what we want to make.
How did you start rapping?
Well, I started signing first. I was on the varsity choir at my school. I produced R&B songs too, and I’ve written songs for other artists. It’s interesting telling people that I’m a rapper, they don’t believe me because I’m not signed yet. People forget that it’s not all about the money, you can’t just be about the money.
What’s it like working with the people on Soulection?
They’re really passionate about their music. They put their feels and souls into their music, and it makes you want to do the same with your craft, hence the song Julian.
Where did the cover art for Cruise Control come from?
I created it and did the photography for it. I’ve been working in Photoshop for 7 – 10 years, so I added all the effects and everything.
What do you mostly write about?
Life, lessons, different things that inspire me. I write depending on the song, emotions, or if I’m going through something during that time.
