Givez has also been equally influenced by all regions of rap music, in addition to 90s R&B. He often credits his style of rap to musicians like Tupac, E-40, Mac Dre, and particularly OutKast ,DMX, and Q-Tip. By 19, Givez’s fame reached far outside of his local parameter with a viral video entitled “Get a bar of tha side”. The video was a promotional effort to bring awareness to his second EP entitled Soul Rebel which debuted at number ten on Billboard's rap albums chart and received critical attention and acclaim.
The rising rapper/ singer already has a loyal, prominent fan base because of this raw truth he advocates for and executes in the most articulate, poetic of ways. As he states himself, it is all about the authenticity: “I’ll always make music based on the things that happens in my life.”He will be releasing his first EP through Interscope records entitled “… To Jalisa” in 2018—a drastic departure from his previous music. The project showcases his R&B roots. Why? Givez notes with no pause, because his music is now has “no filter”.
