First of all, yes we are aware that today is not Saturday. But, keep reading.
Our own Justina Hay had the chance to get up with Houston's own Papa G, who happens to be a feature artist in our CLASS ACT, to find out more about his Squalla Saturday, find out what it is, below.
Papa G’s latest project “Anxiety” has had Houston enthusiastically buzzing.
Since the release, Papa has been setting Instagram ablaze with his array of photos including some with a few big-time artists you may recognize. Also, if you follow him on social media take note of his recent name change to @CallMeSqualla.
Talk about work ethic, you will see that a majority of Papa's post find him in a studio somewhere or putting in work outside the studio.
Hustlegrade got the chance to reach out to Papa G after his first session Friday night to find out what he has been cooking up.
Hustlegrade: What inspired Squalla Saturday?
Papa G: Something new that I’m starting. It’s a freestyle series to build engagement with my people.
Hustlegrade: Your people?
Papa G: Yes my people, I don’t like the word fan, such a weird ass word.
Hustlegrade: Where and when can we hear your freestyles?
Papa G: There’s no set time that I’m dropping these freestyles. They will be every Saturday afternoon and i will drop a video preview on my Instagram with the new link in my bio. The freestyles are also available on my Soundcloud.
Hustlegrade: Do you plan on making a mixtape with the Squalla Saturday Freestyles?
Papa G: I’m still undecided on making a mixtape.
Hustlegrade: What’s next for Papa G?
Papa G: Just to keep peeps entertained and keep fresh shit in their ear while wrapping up new project and still pushing Anxiety. Also be on the lookout for more visuals from Anxiety.
We were fortune enough to catch Papa G right before he was heading back in the studio for another session just before he dropped his "Humble" freestyle, which you can find on our SUBMISSION SUNDAYS: VOLUME 6.
