John Givez is among a myriad of rappers on the West Coast trying to bring a more positive message to those who grew up hard.
“It’s based about myself, a kid like myself growing up in Oceanside, California being surrounded by gangs, prostitution, all this other stuff that sways me back and fourth but having a foundation of being brought up in a home with faith and just good morals to live by,” he said via a segment of today’s (September 29) DX Daily. “[He comes] to a point where his soul is drifting every which way and he just comes to a point when he realizes he can be a Soul Rebel and a rebel with a cause rather than a rebel with no cause.”
John Givez also spoke about his single, “Johnny Law” and what he was trying to accomplish on it.
“There’s multiple layers to it but it’s not a song to hate the police it’s just a song to reconcile yourself to a higher standard of behaving with dealing with them,” he explained.
