GloRilla releases her debut EP Anyways, Life’s Great… 2022 was a banner year for the Memphis rapper who signed to Yo Gotti’s imprint CMG back in July. Anyways, Life’s Great… features Cardi B, Niki Pooh, and Hitkidd who produced the banger “F.N.F. (Let’s Go).”
The rising artist has become known for her way with words, her raspy voice, and her energetic persona. You might even remember when a video of Glo and her friends, “Set The Tone” went viral over a year ago – she’s come a long way since then. “Tomorrow 2” with Cardi B was another big moment for GloRilla, from there her talent has been undeniable.
Recently GloRilla opened up about her meteoric rise in an Apple Music interview with Zane Lowe:
“I get to take care of the people that I love, all my family and friends. I used be broke…I ain’t broke no more. And it’s by doing the thing that I love. I’m making money doing what I love to do. So, that’s everything. Yeah. I just stay prayed up, you know what I’m saying? Do right by everybody. I try not to let too much get … I try not to let everything just get to me so much.”
In that same interview, she told Lowe that she first stepped into a studio in 2018. She added, “My cousin had got me there. I just used to write raps, just playing around, just doing challenges and stuff. And so he was like, ‘You need to take it serious.’ So he booked the studio session. I’m talking about, I went in the booth to record it and I never wanted to go back. I said, ‘All right, this is all I want to do. This is all I want to do.’”
Yo Gotti shared the following on GloRilla back in July, “GloRilla is a natural born star – she has a different sound and approach that’s needed in hip-hop right now.” We couldn’t agree more.
