“Only get better as you continue, grind and work hard day by day” GMG Ant.
The new wave of pop-culture and emerging artists is cruising into the world one mixtape at a time and no doubt, Texas has been making some noise on the scene. Already known for birthing big names in ‘trill’ Hip-hop such as Yella Beezy, Meg Thee Stallion, and Trae Tha Truth the ‘Lone Star’ state isn’t just famous for Swishers, good steaks and BBQ. If you haven’t already made yourself familiar with ‘Get Money Gang’, it’s a music group of family and friends, with a gang of upcoming artists representing for the 817. We managed to steal a little 1 on 1 time with Fort Worth, Texas native GMG Ant, and we are really feeling his energy on the track. At 24 years-old he has a BIG appetite for music and has several successful projects already out with a new project on the way titled “Green Light”. His music features upbeat 808’s, a lot of play on the keys, and overall is a good party feel that is the perfect vibe for turning up or just something to bop to. In fact, when you need to get ‘lit’ and ready to get to a ‘bag’ turn on his track “Party Jumpin.” He credits Lil Baby , 21 Savage, Gucci Mane, and Hoodrich Pablo as his major inspirations. Real recognizes real, and Ant mentions that when Atlanta native ‘Lil Baby’ blew up on the scene just a few years ago he took notes and started taking his craft much more seriously. Being a fellow Texas native, earlier in his career he remembers being featured on the same mixtape as Megan Thee Stallion which he describes as ‘crazy’. GMG Ant also recently collabed with Atlanta native ‘Coca Vanga’, and says he plans on doing many more collaborative projects in the future, as well as hopefully starting his own label. Check out our exclusive 1 on 1 Q&A below and follow the links to some of his hardest music online including his profile on the dope new music streaming site Zaytown Global from Zaytoven Beatz, Roland Williams and team.

- What do you want the world to know about you and your music?
“I’m a laid back and chill kind of person which I want people to know by listening to my music. I make ‘get money’ music positive. Like ‘trap’ stay on ya shit, something I believe a lot of people would be able to relate to. Also, it’s based off real life experiences. I also got a different flow. like based off the beat is how my songs kind of go. I got good rhythm, none of my songs sound alike! I also see a lot of progress since I 1st started recording.”
