Earlier this year I had the opportunity to make it over to the city of Lost Angels, otherwise known as beautiful Los Angeles, California! During my stay, I had the privilege of meeting with Rhode Island producer Bongo The Drum Gahd. Meeting in the studio of the prestigious producing duo Da Internz, I was able to get familiar with the Grammy Award winning producer and discuss what’s next for the RI native. Growing up in Providence, Bongo found his passion in music playing instruments in the church. Taking his craft to Jacksonville, he learned to love his passion and the interactions people had with music. Today, Bongo is an award-winning producer behind projects like Big Sean’s Dark Sky Paradise, Trey Songz Trigga and Omarion’s Sex Playlist.
During his interview, Bongo and I discussed his passion to which he credits his current success, “find what you’re passionate about, build it from the ground up and prosper.” “It’s the time, love and dedication to make it happen,” he continued. The creator describes his work as “moments”, putting the right people together, finding inspiration and delivering that interpretation. We also reflected on working with big names such as Musiq Soulchild and Big Sean as well as his relationship with Da Internz. During our time spent, I learned a lot from this Bongo and I look forward to watching him grow! Currently Bongo is working on The Game’s forthcoming project Documentary 2. Get familiar!
