We had the good fortune of connecting with Gage Newman and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Gage, what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
I pursued an Artistic creative career because it helps me document all the awesome stuff that happens to me in music form you are either born a creative or youre not for those of us who are there is this inner voice that guides us and motivates us its like we are the spokes people for a generations and telling our stories help motivate the next person to live out there’s i always say i paint audio pictures so when u play my songs whenever you get from that will help you get through life

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I make hip-hop music and what sets me apart from my peers is mine is rooted in a lyric driven style like we had back in the 90s so it gives you this nostalgic feeling when you listen i am most proud of having jadakiss featured on one of my songs him being 1 of the top 5 best hiphop mcs was a major deal for me for him to be featured on my last project lord of the fly 2 it was not easy getting to where i am now it takes consistency and hard work and also of people dont have those traits i overcame those challenges by simply drowning myself in my art and find motivation through reading and movies and listening to artist i look up too my friend was murdered recently and it hit me life is short so we have to do whatever it is we want to do on this earth before our time is up the lessons i have learned are every loss is a lesson and we must never give up on our dreams because our test will be our testimony for the next person
i want people to know you can do anything you put your mind and grind too as long as you keep the most high first and never give up and i want my brand to be timeless for generations to come and i do that through my clothing and music

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
IN miami on sunday we do club liv monday we can hit #IndustryMondays @ the dirty rabbit wynwood tuesday wed thursday the good timehotel owned by pharell and David Grutman friday and say club liv and after party at E11EVEN strip club we can eat at the versace mansion any day hit up wet willies and fat tuesdays and relax on the beach. Honestly its miami there are so many places and spots that if i were to name all we would be here all day.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
i want to dedicate this to all the creatives out there who have a fear of sharing their story because they dont want to be judged i want my story to be the light and testimony to help them tell there to motivate the next person to do the same. For all the people who speak truth to power in a society where its easier to be part of the go along get along gang instead of speaking your truths
