If you're just hearing the name Gabriel Garzón-Montano for the first time, you are late to the game. He's already done Rebel Red Bull Sound Select Artist, with Lenny Kravitz, and recently had his song “68" sampled by Drake on “Jungle." We got to sit down with him just after he killed at the Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles.
We speak on early influences including his vocalist mother and legendary artist, Prince, and what it was like going from playing in front of 200 people to going on tour with Kravitz. He also tells us why he will never sell out his own values just to be culturally relevant.
Hit play and peep game.
