Guapdad 4000 talks being just as creative and attention-seeking as a kid as he is now, losing the family house to tech gentrification, moving to Los Angeles on his last 20 dollars, and performs “Platinum Falcon” live in studio
This week we talk to Gordon Scamsey aka Shia Labustdown aka Bitcoin Batman aka Stone Cold Steve Flossin better known as Guapdad 4000. Guap has quickly become one of the most beloved characters in rap music and is probably friends with everyone on your current playlist. He’s also been busy during quarantine. His “Rona Raps” series has kept everyone stuck in the house entertained with features from all across the hip hop spectrum from Isaiah Rashad to EarthGang to Murs. This year’s “Platinum Falcon” release shows a multifaceted Guap both floating over gentle melodies on songs like “Trade Place With Them Jeans,” and firing off cold bars over self-produced bangers on joints like “Greedy.”
Easily one of the charismatic guests to have ever appeared on KN, and he’d be sure to tell you so. Hear us talk about being just as creative and attention-seeking as a kid as he is now, losing the family house to tech gentrification, moving to Los Angeles on his last 20 dollars, locking himself in the studio for 8 months before going viral, and see him perform “Platinum Falcon” live in studio.
