3Bubble: I’ve been in the business since 2008. I’ve always known I had the gift of gab. My cousin “KB” pushed me to take making music more seriously and so I did.

Gray: I’ve been in the music business since 2014 when 3 and I released Live From The Pentagon. I started singing in the church, and got into rapping in high school. I didn’t know I was cold until people started deleting my sessions at studios. 3 was the first person who acknowledged my talent, and saved my sessions…Lol!!!

  1. What do you feel are the key elements people should be getting out of your music?

Gray: We create music with the intention of it being timeless. Our delivery is unplanned and based on vibes. This allows whoever is listening to sit in on our creative process. That, mixed with our attention to melody and intricately threaded raps, is the key to our sound.

  1. What do you think separates you from the massive crowd of artists emerging right now?

3Bubble: The fact that we connect to almost every genre creatively separates us from most artists.

Gray: I don’t think anything separates us from other artists. If you are making music that you believe in, regardless of genre, we are all untied. We have a different sound and a different reason why we create the way we do. But hell, that’s music.

  1. Do you currently have a preferred song in your catalog, and why is it special to you?

Gray: Yes. “Never Thought” … I was actually allowed to speak the truth of what I didn’t do while my grandmother was alive.

  1. What key ingredients do you always try and infuse into your songs, regardless of style or tempo?

3Bubble: Being in creative control of the music making process is a blessing. Not having the capital and resources that come from being with a major label is sometimes discouraging.

Gray: It’s exciting that we don’t have to answer to nobody. It’s discouraging that most don’t truly support until the machine supports you.

Gray: As owners social media and technology are extremely prevalent. As artists we make music with the sole purpose of being remembered in time.

  1. Tell us something about your latest release and where fans can find it. 

3Bubble/J.Gray: LFTP Season Vol. 1 Reloaded was originally designed to be a mixtape/album. None of the songs were created with the thought that they’ll be on the same project. The album can be found on itunes, google play, and every online store.

  1. What is your relationship with visual media? Do you think videos are important for your music? Do you have a video you would recommend fans checkout so they can get in to what you’re doing?
