1. What’s your name?
DeWayne Richard / Slideliker!ch / GLR
2. Where are you from?
I moved around a lot as a kid but I would consider Louisiana home
3. How old are you?
4 .When did you start making music
I’ve been writing for about 5 years but I actually got serious about making music 2 years ago
5. How serious are you about your career?
To be honest, I’ve never taken anything more serious in my life.
6. Have you ever thought about quitting music?
I could never truly quit making music. I’ve had doubts and contemplated if it was worth it. But I’ve put too much time money and energy in this to give up, ever. Music is really apart of me. It’s like being in an arranged marriage you can’t get out of.
7. Who inspires you the most?
I have a couple but the biggest one would have to be my little bro. I would’ve never truly gotten serious about the music if it weren’t for him. He was right there with me recording in that sauna of a closet back home everyday
8.What got you into making music?
I’ve always been deeply connected to the music but I just love that feeling of being in the booth, zoned in. It’s like nothing else around me matters, I’m locked in. It’s therapeutic, plus I want people to be able to see all my creativity on display.
9.Who is your favorite producer?
There’s a couple I really rock with, but my favorite right now is definitely pinkgrillz(with Internetmoney). This man don’t miss. I have a song with him already out and I have a few to release in the near future.
10. What is one of your best songs/beats?
One of my best is definitely my record “No Peace” ft. Lil Gotit. I think it shows I can really float on a beat. One of my best verses I’ve written.
11. Are you signed to a record or label?
So far I am an independent artist
12. Have you ever performed?
I didn’t really get into the music until the pandemic started so I’ve only performance so far opening for Bun B in Arlington, TX earlier this year.
13. Who would you most likely collaborate with?
I would say Trippie Redd and/or Ski mask the slump god
14. If you could open for any artist who would it be?
Trippie Redd for sure
15. What’s next for you?I’ll actually being moving back to the East Coast around Jan-Feb time. Before I leave Dallas I have a video shoot for the “No Peace” record with Halfpintfilmz and another video for another song “Summer 21”. Other than that of course still perfecting my craft and staying consistent. The plan will always be to takeover that’s the mindset I’m in.
