"So it was kind of a blessing the fact that 1st & 15th didn't work for me. I actually saw my death."
In part two of my interview series with Gemstones, the artist formerly known as Gemini drops some real lines. No rap. Real rap. This piece is probably one of my favorites because the content is so honest and heavy. I enjoy the funny, entertaining conversations, but the fruitful dialogue I have with artists are probably my most fulfilling I have as a correspondent. As a writer, I equally appreciate the candid quotes and soundbites I encounter on a daily basis covering artists. This Gowhere exclusive with Demarco Castle sheds much light on his spiritual side and I think you'll enjoy. Testimony swag. Don't dumb it down. Get in tune with my new interview groove featuring Gemstones. Be on the lookout for Pt. 3: Elephant In The Room!
"I was actually lost. Before I found God, I was lost. I used to go home at night, I would be afraid to go to sleep. I actually thought I was going to die in my sleep. That's what the people didn't see... For a whole year, I didn't even come outside. I lost so much weight, I was sick. Then I got in my world, I found light, I found comfort, I found my wife, I found joy, I found peace... I found God, and I found peace in that, man."
"You want to leave somethin' behind. And what I knew I didn't want to leave behind... I didn't want to leave behind records like 'Buss Down', I didn't want to leave behind records like 'Shoot 'Em Up In The Club'. I didn't want to be dead and gone and the only thing I would see left of me is a picture of me with a gallon of Hennessy in my hand. I want to be remembered as a stand up dude. Giving, loving, caring. I want to be remembered... I want to be remembered."
