1. What’s going on? Please introduce yourself and tell us where you’re from.

2. When did you start rapping and who or what inspired you?
I actually started rapping/producing at the age of 19 during my senior year in high school. My inspiration comes from my grandfather and my aunt. My grandfather played drums professionally for over 50 years and still plays. My aunt is a radio city music hall rockette.
3. As an up and coming artist, do you find it difficult to maintain personal relationships while persuing your music career?
In my opinion, depending on how busy you are and if you have a family it can be hard. Timing is everything so you have to learn how to manage your time wisely. Most people who don’t understand the music business may think you have free time to just sit around and chit chat. But to those who respect/understand business knows you have to take your craft seriously because thats how the bills get paid. it’s a constant grind if what you’re seeking is longevity.
4. Tell us something you enjoy doing [besides music]that most people don’t know.
I enjoy being a father of 5 and a husband. I also have triplets in the bunch so my life is very exciting lol. I love to travel and go bowling.
5. Currently, what project or single are you working on or pushing & where can we find it?
Right now I’m promoting/pushing my new single “like me”. It features ZiplocGhost and Fatboii with beat production by my boy Abel. You can download it from Itunes – https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/like-me-feat.-ziplocghost/id1046005207, Google Play – https://play.google.com/store/music/album/RdG_Like_Me_feat_ZiplocGhost_Fatboii?id=B72q6y2bwf7qjocqgevybg5bvbe, spotify -https://play.spotify.com/album/0Qf6FF0Vu1EsquU7NzwroD and other major digital retailers.
6. What’s been the most memorable moment so far in your music career?
The most memorable moment was when I toured Italy with an orchestra. Such an experience as far as music and a whole lot of pasta to go around.
7. If you could work with any artist, (current or past) who would it be and why?
If I could work with any artist it would have to be Chris Brown. Reason is, I think Chris Brown is not but one of the most talented individuals in the industry. His music is mind blowing and I bet its cool to work with an individual with such great writing skills and vocal range.
8. What are your goals musically for 2016?
Hopefully getting to hear my music on commercial radio and just continuing to make great music and be a positive influence to others in the world.
9. Tell everyone where they can find you? [Websites, Social media, Booking info etc]
They can reach me on twitter, instagram and my facebook personal page @rdgmuzic, YouTube and soundcloud @rdgalloway, Facebook artist page @rdgalloway1, and email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
10. What words would you like to leave us with? Any Shout Outs?
Keep a positive mindset, stay prayed up, and most importantly stay away from negative influences. Evaluate your situation and the people around you daily. Remember knowledge is power and always work hard at whatever you choose to pursue in life. Whatever comes easy doesn’t last long, and whatever last long doesn’t come easy. I would like to give thanks to god because without him none of this would even be possible. My family, my music team hdmg, all of my fans/supporters and TampaMystic for having me. God Bless You all.
