According to the talented rapper, “The Way It Go” is essentially his introduction to the world.
“I’m the star. I’m the messiah and the devil,” stated Global Not Local. “I’m not cocky but I am being boastful about who I am in the track. I just felt I needed to really let the people who are following me to have to choose whether to be fans or just walk away by letting them know who I am.”

“It’s different. It’s really just me letting people know that I’m hip hop. I’m commercial. I’m pop. I’m doing everything,” he stated.
That single along with “The Way It Go” are both featured on Global Not Local’s upcoming EP titled “It’s My Pleasure.” The EP will be available to the public in September.
According to Global Not Local, it’s his upcoming single title “It’s Been Great” that he believes will ultimately earn him a Grammy.
“The hook is, ‘if I die today, shit my life is great,’” he stated. “Everything that I’ve done in my life that people either consider wrong or right, I’m laughing about it because look where I am.”
