We Speak Rap




Over the last four years, Gino Black has definitely elevated his sound as a record producer as well as being deliberate in showcasing his lyrical abilities as a premiere rap artist. In addition to hip-hop/rap music, he also produces electronic dance music, alternative rock and he also composes orchestral and ambient music for film, tv and other media.

On his latest release, Gino Black is full on balls to the wall focused. He has a clear and concise message to his listeners. MOTIVATE. ELEVATE. LEVITATE. CELEBRATE. While he cautions, “Don’t celebrate to soon while your building on success…”; he commands like a drill like a drill sergeant as he instructs us to first MOTIVATE ourselves through internal bravery from within. Then he advises us to ELEVATE ourselves mentally and our circumstances via hard work, sacrifice and discipline. After which point he tells us to “LEVITATE”; and what that means is to rise above the stress, negativity and BS of life. According to Gino Black, “ is ONLY after we have achieved true individual success from our efforts can we CELEBRATE. Celebrating your wins too soon (while in progress) can be a hindrance for additional growth and expansion.”

“LEVITATE” is a very unique record in that it has subtle nuances of peacefulness within the sonics of the production, but at the same time, it quickly and energetically and viscerally livens up and gives the listener a sensation of supercharged battery pack of energy. Listening to “LEVITATE” makes you feel like you can accomplish anything!
