What can be said about Ghostemane? Other than the fact that he screams originality and innovation, Ghostemane is a wide-eyed, perceptive thinker watching over the world. Undoubtedly he’s a rare commodity in hip hop. Artists like Ghostemane don’t come around often and when they do, they uproot all those ideas of what we think hip hop can be and create an entirely new world for fans willing to venture out of their own safe spaces.
Today he sits in his red and black plaid button-down, his long grey hair falling past his shoulders. He has a relaxed ambience about him. Like Lil Peep, Ghostemane is an honest individual looking to spread happiness and love in his own unique way and so far, he’s been wildly successful.
He's had his own experiences with depression and fought demons tooth and nail to get to the point where he is now. Alongside the road he's seen friends and loved ones fall to the crippling monster.
"I love Gus (Lil Peep), there's so many memories it's ridiculous (..) It's really weird how all of that happened, we ended up going our separate ways musically and found success in our way - I'm really proud of him. We still touched base every once in a while, he would randomly just send me a selfie or something, and I would send him back - like I see you, you guys are killing it. I think it's important to always make an effort to stay in touch with people that you care about.”
It seems obvious but it’s easy to forget. Nothing in this life is guaranteed and each minute with those you love, those that inspire you, those that cheer you on and support you are gifts we’ll never receive again after they’ve passed.
