GOM’s Jered Sanders “felt like rapping” so he decided to bless everyone with a free download of an EP for Black Friday. What’s it called, Black Friday 2. The emcee took some time to talk about the project on our Fast 5 Fridays segment.

1. Why did you decide to drop a project for Thanksgiving and Black Friday?

Eh, I don’t know exactly. After the tour, I was just in the mindset to create music again. I took a month or so off and got the itch. Then, I remembered that I’d dropped the original Black Friday project two years ago. All in all, it just felt like a good time to start rapping again.

2. What is the significance of the interludes after each track?

I just prefer to make a project a full listening experience. They’ve become somewhat of an expected variable of my projects, so I wanted to make sure I kept the tradition going.

3. Is there a theme or concept to this EP or is it straight bars?

Honestly, I was gonna call it, “I Feel Like Rapping Again…” but after the success of the original Black Friday mixtape, BF 2 just seemed like it would be a dope way to keep pushing the pen again.

4. When were these tracks written, how’d it come together?

I wrote them over the course of a week. I just plucked some popular beats from the net that came out this year and got to work. I’m starting to work on new original music, but to spark the brain and practice flows/patterns, I look to industry beats. Think of it like sparring to prepare for a championship fight or jogging to prep for a marathon.

5. When can we expect one of your many FULL projects to drop?

Next year is gonna be A LOT of fun. You’ll likely get three projects from me. Stay tuned.
