Glovez24hourhiphop.comInterview

24: Introduce yourself to everyone that doesn’t already know who you are.

Glovez: They call me Glovez, EastCoastFightaz representative, coming out of Flushing, Queens NY. I also represent the failed American dream!

24: Before we get into your music, can you describe your history about how you got into and what inspired you?

Glovez: I believe music is in my DNA. Being half Irish and Korean I get two different musical sides fused in one. With my mother being Korean, she is a Karaoke fiend just like most Asians, so it’s only right that I pick up a mic. Also, my dad is very poetic. Growing up my father always used to write poetry and my grandfather used to say “That’s the Irish folklore side.”

24: What was the Hip-Hop scene like for you growing up where you’re from?

Glovez: Growing up, hip-hop was not a major part of my life until my teen years. My mother only listened to Korean music and my father would only listen to rock-n-roll. I remember my first hip-hop tape was Vanilla Ice. As I kid, that was my first Hip-Hop tape that I had ever listened to. When I finally hit my teen years my father bought my brother and I for Christmas 3 Hip-Hop CDs and they where Notorious BIG Life After Death, Bone-Thugs-N-Harmony East 1999, and Tupac All Eyes On Me. Once I listened to those 3 CD’s I loved hip-hop! Especially Tupac’s All Eyes On Me CD. That CD changed the way I looked at the world and the people around us.  Tupac’s All Eyes On Me CD definitely was the CD that put the spark in me for Hip-Hop.
