By Mathis Ferrut Journalist people, TV, reality TV Fascinated by the world of media from an early age, television has no secrets for him. Loft Story, Star Academy, Secret Story, the Ch'tis, the Marseillais… He is a real encyclopedia of reality TV. He is also a fan of sports (particularly football and Paris Saint-Germain) and music. He listens to everything and his playlists surprise more than one! Gazo is THE French rapper for this summer of 2022. His album, “KMT”, released on July 1, is still number one in sales today. But the 27-year-old artist struggled before getting there. He was also homeless before becoming the rap star he is today. In an interview, he even reveals having created a riot recently by going to get his bread in a bakery.
Gasis making everyone agree. While his album “Drill FR”, released in 2021, has sold more than 100,000 copies, his new project, “KMT”, unveiled on July 1, 2022, is still number 1 in sales today. But the 93 rapper struggled a lot before becoming the star he is today. The rapper was even homeless, and he claims that almost everything has changed in his life.
“Everything has changed except my friends! Before, I used to go out a bit in clubs, but I still had to restrict my outings, otherwise it's nonsense. I stay a lot in my areas, Saint-Denis, Paris… Everything else has become more complicated“, says the artist who participated in the soundtrack of Validé 2 in a interview granted to Le Parisien.
“It started a riot“
Indeed, he is now a real star rap and each of its releases can turn into a crowd movement! “The other day, I went out to get a baguette, two little ones recognized me, they asked for a photo and it started a riot in two seconds. I also have to avoid college outings. Now, whenever I hear a ringtone in the street, I get paranoid” he recalls, amused.
” I'm coming from afar“
Success hasn't gone to his head, and Gazo knows where he's coming from. “I'm coming by far, my success began at age 24. I learned from the mistakes of people around me. From the beginning, I had precise ideas of how I was going to organize myself. However, I'm not the guy who gets up in the morning wanting to be number 1 and the most streamed artist. As long as I can make a living from my music, that's fine with me. I'm not going to accumulate songs to exist or lock myself into boxes. I like all styles of music” he told the newspaper.
Given his talent, Gazo is likely to impose himself among the bosses of the French rap game!
