Rapper/Poet/Author — San Francisco

San Francisco born and LA based rapper and poet George Watsky released his 4th full length studio album 'X Infinity' on August 19th, the album follows hot on the heels of his first essay collection 'How To Ruin Everything' which debuted in the new York Times best-seller list earlier this year.

Name, Where are you from?
I’m George Watsky, and I’m from San Francisco, CA.

What do you do?
I write things and perform them. Until now mostly music and poetry, but I put out my first essay collection this year.

Describe your style in three words?
Funny, unfunny, gymnastical

How should your music be listened to?
In headphones at full volume while eating something unhealthy

What do you miss about home when you're on tour?
Clean socks

What British music icons inspire your sound today?
The Beatles. My friend Kate Nash. The Streets. Gorillaz. Dizzee Rascal. Amy Winehouse, Scroobius Pip

What was the first song you played on repeat?
Waterfalls by TLC

A song from your favourite album?
My favorite albums change all the time, but maybe Little Wing by Jimi Hendrix

Song you wish you had written
Passin Me By by The Pharcyde. Also wish I’d come up with Lil Dicky’s ‘save dat money’ video idea. Can you build me a time machine?

The Song with your favourite lyrics?
Andre 3000’s guest verse on ‘What a Job’ by Devin the Dude

4 contemporary/new artists you can’t stop listening to right now?

Sunday Candy - Chance the Rapper
This is sound porn for me. Amazing, honest lyrics with word-nerd internal rhymes packed in, incredibly satisfying, rich gospel music bed with a catchy chord progression, and it manages to not sound like a ripoff of anyone else. It’s everything I love about rap in one song.

The Bird - Anderson .Paak
If this was an Al Green song, it would be my favorite Al Green song. That’s how much I love it.

Coffee - Sylvan Esso
This whole album’s sound palette is so rad, consistent, and well-mixed. I’m a sucker for a great synth patch and banging drums. A hint of tUnE-yArDs in the very creative vocals.

For Free - Kendrick Lamar
The vocal range and dynamics is amazing and the delivery compliments the powerful message perfectly. I love hearing poetry in music and Kendrick is incredible at it.
