CYPAQ

Introducing new artist CYPAQ from the beautiful town of Accra, Ghana in West Africa. He has been making music since he was a senior in High School and now he is ready to share his talents with the world. 

His stage name is a short form of his full name Cyril Paakow Quansah (Cy, PaQ), although in school he was known as ‘Briefcase Joe’. “I used to be called ‘Briefcase Joe’ because I rapped an EMINEM freestyle in school where EM mentioned ‘Briefcase Joe’ and told my peers that it was my freestyle! No worries, I write my own freestyles and raps now. (Laughing)”

CYPAQ views his music as a form of expression. “Emotion is what inspires me to create music. Emotion of any sort…whether I feel angry, happy, sad or litt that emotion will be my inspiration to make a song.” He and his sister began dabbling with music back in 2013 but it was more like a hobby. “I was just writing corny ass songs and trying to replicate what I heard on the radio. But once I met my dudes Snek.B and Dapaah in 2014, I knew that I wanted to take music seriously.”  

He began performing in various school concerts and entertainment nights at his boarding school and his dream of becoming a professional gamer quickly changed. “I always wanted to be a YouTuber or a gamer, something where I could be myself and create content. But when I performed in front of my classmates for the first time I got all sorts of litty and it felt so good! It just confirmed for me that this was what I wanted to do with my life.”

CYPAQ’s biggest musical influences are Wretch 32 and EMINEM. He admires the fact that these artists’ words translate to emotion so perfectly. “Ok. I want to say this first, I no longer really care about standing out or being different. So if I’m being honest I don’t really focus on being set apart from other artists or anything like that. However, what I think is that most people see me as being different from other artists because of how passionate I am, how personal the songs are and how strong your emotions can get when you listen to my music. I’ve been told that my voice gives listeners the chills, and that’s definitely a plus!”

He describes himself as an EMO artist whose sound emanates diversity, comfort and good vibes. “I looove where Hip-Hop is at! There is a growing variety of artists who are diverse and gradually that toxic side of Hip-Hop is being drowned out by the positivity from new artists like Cordae, AmineKiddfreshStormzy and of course myself. I love the fact that the culture is still growing and changing.”

Being an artist who can connect and empathize with his listeners is of great importance to CYPAQ. “I am definitely one of those artists who are not afraid to talk about the issues that people are facing such as mental health, which is a big deal. I feel like the music industry, especially Hip-Hop and Rap, does not talk about how important mental health issues are or embrace people who are vulnerable. It’s always about being strong and hard and all that toxic masculinity stuff. I want to make music that makes loners feel okay and inspire as many people as possible.”

CYPAQ is currently working on a variety of singles which he will release this year as he finishes up his solo project scheduled for release in 2021. “I’m very excited about my debut solo project. It’s going to be so important to my career’s direction and it will change the world. I can’t wait to drop it for real!”

    DJ G MONEY

    Meet celebrity DJ, producer and podcast host DJ G MONEY, from South Jamaica, Queens.

    G MONEY’s skills are somewhat hereditary as his dad, Gary, was also a DJ in his younger days. Gary and his brother were a duo called “MONKEY and RAT’ from 40 projects in South Jamaica, Queens.

    “As a kid I heard all of the stories about my Dad and my Uncle DJ’g around Queens and it made me to want to be a DJ too. Growing up in the average black family, music is a huge part of your everyday lifestyle and it influences you tremendously.”

    Inspired heavily by his family ties to music, they still play a major part in his career. “My Dad still teaches me about the old school songs and which ones blend together. My Mom always makes sure my transitions are on point and my uncles and cousins keep me current on the hottest new artists and music.”

    G MONEY was also inspired by the movie, “Juice”, a crime thriller starring TuPac Shakur, Khalil Kain, Jermaine Hopkins and a young Omar Epps, whose character was an aspiring DJ. “When I saw Omar Epps playing a DJ in ‘Juice’, awe man that fascinated me and made me want to become a DJ even more!”

    Back around the way, he watched a good friend of his, DJ TNT, rocking crowds at his JHS basketball games. “I just thought it was very cool how TNT kept the crowd entertained during the games.” This was the final push he needed to ask his parents to buy him his own set of turntables and they obliged.

    Christmas of 1998 G MONEY was booked for his first official gig, a birthday celebration in 40 projects for his late cousin, Tykeem. And so his career as a professional DJ began.

    He describes his style of DJ’g as upbeat, fun and live. “I like to party and keep people dancing all night! Whether it’s Hip-Hop, Pop, Reggae or R&B, I want people to enjoy the music I play and leave the party having had a great time!”

    G’s mixes consist of a touch of old school/soul infused with new, trending music. “Being brought up the way I was musically, I have a distinct way of telling a story through each set. My musical selections are carefully planned out. I blend certain samples to create a specific vibe. I use this same formula when I’m producing music for other artists.”

    G MONEY’s extraordinary ability to walk into the venue, read the crowd’s vibe and know exactly what tunes to spin to get the party going, puts him in a class by himself. “A lot of DJ’s play a set they created the night before. Not me, I observe the atmosphere while I’m setting up and figure out what’s gonna make everyone in the room MOVE! I think that’s the most important part of being a DJ and it’s also my favorite part of my job. Controlling the room, making people dance and watching how they react to the songs I play gives me a rush!”

    Sounds like a smooth and hassle-free gig huh? Not exactly… “It is an amazing feeling to be able to make people dance, sing, jump and feel good for a couple of hours, but there’s a downside to it just like any other job. I’d have to say the most challenging parts of being a DJ would be one, working a private gig where I have to bring my own equipment. No DJ enjoys the unpacking and packing of equipment! (laughing) And two, fielding the numerous song requests. It can get pretty annoying at times.”

    “Music plays a big part in all of our lives. As a DJ, it’s my job to set a mood and make each event I play a memorable one. I run into people whose wedding, sweet 16 or birthday party I’ve played and they remind me that I helped make their event one of the best times of their lives. It’s an indescribable feeling!”

    When G is on his own time he loves to listen to different genres of music. It helps keep him sharp and stay creative with his mixing. “I listen to all types of music but some of my favorites are…hmmmm. It really depends on my mood. My personal playlist is very random (laughing). A few of the artists that I tend to play more than others would be Future, Kanye West and Usher.”

    Besides DJ’g events and producing music for up-and-coming artists like Kyah Baby and Teddy Bear Taj, he and QueenzFlip co-host a podcast on YouTube titled, “Flip Da Script”. “Our podcast is pretty dope and it’s considered to be one of the top podcasts out right now. Queenzflip and I have been doing the show for a little over 3 years now and we’ve had some amazing guests such as Eric B., Cam’Ron, Adrian Broner, Lil’ Mama and Loaded Lux to name a few. It’s a lot of fun!”

    G MONEY also stars in his own YouTube show tilted, “Picky Eater”, where he visits different restaurants, samples unconventional dishes and shares his reactions with the audience. The show is currently on hiatus while he works on the production side of his career. He has plans to drop new music and visuals in 2020. And don’t be surprised if he pops out with an album or mixtape!

    “I’m putting in all of this hard work to eventually establish myself as one of the top DJs/Producers in the game. I want to leave behind a legacy that will be talked about for years to come. It’s important for me to pass down what I’ve learned to up-and-coming DJs and producers to help them reach my level of success and beyond.”

    Spoken like a true student of the game. To date, he has DJ’d for TruTV’s hit show “impractical Jokers” at Comic Con in San Diego, private events for LL Cool J and has been featured on BET’s 106th & Park and VH1 shows Gossip Girl” and “Mob Wives”.

    I’d say G MONEY is well on his way to accomplishing his goals!
