ABM: What is your stage name?
Gin0means: I go by Gin0means, and Gino means business.
ABM: Where are you from, and what was it like growing up there?
Gin0means: I’m from The Bay. Shoutout Oakland! I was born & raised in West Oakland. Growing up in the town (Oakland) was tough because of the bad environment I was surrounded by. It was consistent violence & poverty. My family wasn’t the richest, so we didn’t live in the best areas. My mom struggled to keep me & my siblings away from the bad environment but I made the best of it & we made it out. I love my city & wouldn’t change where I came from.
ABM: What are your last full length releases people can go check out right now?
Gin0means: I just dropped a video called Know Nobody. I shot it in Las Vegas. It’s a clean video. It’s about my struggle & how I’m coming up. The video I dropped before that is called “Switched up” featuring Yid. I shot that in the bay. It’s about how niggas thought I switched up but really I bettered myself. The stuff I was doing before wasn’t bringing me to where I am now, untiI I switched up.
I also just wrapped up a video shoot to my song called, “I Remember“ so be on the lookout for that.
ABM: What are you currently working on?
Gin0means: I’ve been fuckin with a lot of artists from The Bay cause that’s home, so I’m working on a project featuring the biggest artists out in The Bay right now. I also have a single I’m working on with Derez De’Shon. I’ll be dropping a mixtape next month. It’ll be one of the biggest projects in the bay.
ABM: What’s your next visual you plan on releasing, tell us about it.
Gin0means: I’m about to drop a music video to a single I cooked up not too long ago called “Certified”. It’s about where I’ve come to grow in this music industry and how much I hustle for what I want and will achieve it the certified way. Ya dig ! I’m trying to drop a video every 3 weeks and show my fans my consistency because I been doing this but I’ve been on and off cause I’ve been dealing with the law.
ABM: Is there any artists you would like to work with in the future?
Gin0means: G-Eazy is somebody I fasho wanna collab with seeing how we both came from the same backyard and grew up having it rough to now living a lavish lifestyle. I would also like to work with Tyga because I been fucking with bruh music for a while now and I think me and him doing a song together would be big and chart worthy.
ABM: Any business ventures you wanna tell the public about?
Gin0means: I have my hands in many jars. I’m a entrepreneur and I try to find business in everything I do daily. I’m working on a couple things I don’t wanna tell anybody about cause niggas is broke these days and just wanna take your ideas.
ABM: Where can people find you online?
Gin0means: On my Instagram under Ginomeansss or under my Twitter and Facebook Gino King Jackson or just google me “Gin0means” I’ll pop up lol. You can look me up on any music platform such as Apple Music, Spotify, YouTube and SoundCloud.
ABM: Any last words?
Gin0means: They never believe in you until you make it, that’s why I go hard with what I do. Sometimes you gotta do something different to get different results. So fuck being up next, I’m tryna be that nigga now!
