Euro P. Gold
Euro P. Gold
Gold is a ball of confusion trapped in a world of music that focuses on selling out. Euro P. Gold is himself and no one else. I make music that reflects every instance of my existence.
Seriously, I’m talking from my birth to the boogie I pulled out of my nose 10 minutes ago. The name Euro P. Gold Comes from three places. Euro is a nickname given to me by one of my closest friends growing up.
P stands for Heuy P. Newton and his non-conformist, revolutionary state of mind, and Gold comes from an adoration of the character Jeremy Piven plays in HBO’s Entourage Ari Gold. From that I created Euro P. Gold- The Author of Flow I’m from Pa, right outside of Philly, so I’m addicted to that soul sound.
I grew up on Gamble And Huff and Luther Vandross. In fact my mother ain't even let me listen to Rap growing up. I used to sneak tapes in my room and groove to them. I remember getting a beating in second grade for listing to In My Lifetime by Jay-Z” All of these incident and artists I grew up on get diffused throughout my music.
Low-key I’m addicted to this rap shit. Everyone has a vice, mines just happens to involve me expressing myself through prose and rhyme scheme. I'm just trying to be different from the masses. So many people try to be different now it’s starting to become a fad so I'm just finna be myself because that's naturally different from the masses.
Ima say what I want and do what I feel. My musical background is soo deep that when I used hear myself I never thought my music was good enough because it wasn't like what everybody else was feeling. I just want to create that feeling that “Hip Hop” was talking about. Mood Music.
