Despite the whirlwind 2020 has been, Polo G has been having a hell of a year in terms of personal achievements he is able to cross of his list. In May, he dropped his project THE GOAT, which saw features from Mustard, Juice WRLD, Lil Baby, and BJ The Chicago Kid. The project was well-received, debuting at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. Today (Sept. 25), he keeps his stride going by dropping his newest single, the melodic “Epidemic.”
In terms of more wins, his collab track with Juice WRLD titled “Hate The Other Side” cracked the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, his first song to achieve this accolade. Earlier this summer, he landed on the XXL Freshman list alongside nine of his worthy rap peers. This week, he gave a TV performance debut of his song “Martin & Gina” on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon. The single already had a Reel Goats-directed music video out that references the classic sitcom it’s named after.
In a recent interview with REVOLT, Polo G gave some insight about how his recording process typically goes:
“I record pretty frequently. When I have a studio session, I’m not the type to try to do 10 songs. I limit the amount of songs I force myself to do because a lot of times that interferes with the content, the subject matter. I don’t want to be repetitive. I don’t want any songs being average, so I try to put my all into a song or two. As far as songs that were going to be big or do good, I thought “Dyin Breed” would have been a big song. It did pretty well too.”
