PARTYNEXTDOOR & Drake Producer G. Ry Has Advice For Upcoming Producers


PARTYNEXTDOOR‘s good friend and producer G. Ry recently sat down with Billboard to discuss his relationship with PND, working with Drake and his advice to upcoming producers.

When asked about his relationship with PND and why they “click” so much, G. Ry had this to say:

“It comes down to music. Just the style of the music I grew up with. Obviously, he’s a singer. I used to try for so long to try and make really hard rap beats. Some friends of mine were like, “No, just stick to the R&B stuff.” I didn’t like it at the time so I would go so hard to try and prove them wrong — but [R&B] is what I’m naturally better at.”

G. Ry went on to talk about working with Drake & 40, and what the process was to work on More Life.

“Literally a week before it came out, 40 texted me like, “Yo, Drake turned two songs into one song,” and I did half of it. He took a picture of the session so I could see my beat and Drake’s vocal. It was at like 1:00 in the morning, so 4:00 or 5:00 in Toronto. I was just kind of like, “This [text] is random,” and it didn’t really feel real at first. But it was real.”

As we all know, it’s hard being an upcoming producer. At BeatStars, we try to give you all the tools you need to succeed, and it looks like G. Ry has some sound advice for you as well.

“Just don’t give up. I don’t have a story about this all coming fast for me. I just never really gave up. So as long as you don’t give up, you’re going to stumble across something. You put in so many hours — 10,000 hours, or 10 summers, as they say — you’re bound to find something if you love it. “
