8. If someone were sitting next to you and you saw them sad; if you had the ability to make them feel better…what would you do or say?

I would let them know my story and let them know that EVERY problem has a solution. We just have to remember to be in the present moment and activate our power of manifestation to get the result we want.

Anything is possible to achieve if you have the right drive. It will bring you countless blessings or miracles that place you right where you need to be. Cody Hoaks’ story is a perfect example. In life, you can ride the wave and enjoy the ride, but you also have the power to manifest what you desire.

G’Fetti – Up and Coming Artist out of Palm Beach

G’Fetti, a.k.a. “Yoda”, a hidden gem in the music scene, is making his mark in the CiiiTY.  Born and raised in Dunbar Village, the heart of Palm Beach, this is where he figured out his love for rapping and making music. Since 8th grade, he used to play around with friends, write rhymes, and create freestyle videos. They formed a collective called G.Y.G. which stands for Graveyard Gang. A natural wordsmith, G’Fetti has a unique fast style of rhyming and spitting bars. With musical influences like Kendrick Lamar, Playboi Carti, and Wiz Khalifa, he learned to enhance his style. G’Fetti always comes with high energy and delivery on tracks like, “Feel like Dthang”, “Legends” and “Psychopath” you can hear these songs off his latest EP, Rockstar Yoda. He is no doubt in his own lane and plans to put his all into his craft and release more content in 2022.  

GYG x NLMB posted up at the Ciiity Studio.

With bigger dreams than just being an artist, he wants to delve into other lanes in the music industry like producing. He looks up to great producers like Pierre Bourne and TM88. Very particular with his beats, he enjoys upbeat tempos and guitars to capture his versatile sound. He prides himself in not sounding like anyone else. It’s deeper than just rapping for him. Through music, he says, “is the only way he can truly express himself and his feelings.” When he isn’t in the studio, he is usually promoting his music, listening to beats, dancing, or showing off his backflips. Other than musical aspirations, he plans on venturing out of Palm Beach one day to go to London.  

2022 is going to be a big year for G’Fetti, he wants to try and leave the loner lifestyle and set his New Year’s resolutions to socialize with more people. As well as release more hit songs and crazy visuals. You’ll want to tune in and see what more there is to come from him in the new year!

Rickodukilla the Underdog of Palm Beach Florida

Rickodukilla Announces Release of 2022 Project in New Interview.

Ricko is a freshman of the CiiiTY’s music scene having only been releasing music under the moniker for 6-7 months.  Originally out of Boynton Beach, a city in Palm Beach County, he attended Roosevelt Middle School before spending his High School years in Palm Beach Central High. High School was about the time that Rickodukilla really started playing around with music. He didn’t take recording seriously though until about 2020 and has been on a roll since. In conversation, Rickodukilla is a quiet and humble dude, who’d even admit himself that he actually doesn’t think he is putting his best foot forward, and feels he is very much an underdog in his own city. However, if you hit the play button on any of this kid’s records you will find yourself instantly blown away by the level of raw talent and creativity evident in his pace, cadence, and delivery such as in records like “Rickodunine” and “Stuck,” from his “I Feel” project, and “No More” from his latest project ‘Versatile.’ Versatile is evident that Ricko is one of those artists with potential to blow up overnight off of his talent alone.

Rickodukilla posts up in an interview with Change in the Youth Media

The versatile artist is not the only underdog though, he’s also co-founded a collective known as GOUD (Generation of Underdogs) which consists of all around talents from artists, creators, and producers, who all come together to make their lives easier and build an empire. This sort of networking is crucial for artists of today, and we see plenty examples of artists organizing their labels and teams very early into their career like Lil Durk with OTF, Kodak Black’s Sniper Gang, XXXTentacion’s Members Only, and so forth. Although many of these organizations often are preestablished gangs, they ultimately do help elevate the brand of the artist a lot. Rickodukilla has a high ceiling potential to build a huge brand and a tight fanbase for himself.

“No More” by Rickodukilla is his latest video streaming on Youtube.

Ultimately, what is most special about Rickodukilla is that he has a unique ability to both melodize and be lyrical all while still maintaining exclusivity in his own lane. It’ll be very interesting to see how quickly Rickodukilla will rise considering that this is only ground level for him. We’re on the lookout for Unpopular Loner, the new EP from Rick dropping this January of 2022!
