We had the good fortune of connecting with Glow Way and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Glow, what role has risk played in your life or career?
I feel like in order to succeed in accomplishing your aspirations you have to take risks. Taking a risk is putting all your faith, confidence and applying force into an action that could possibly cause you to lose or gain. If you actually look into the background story of majority of the most successful pioneers you’ll see that some type of risk had to be taken to get them from mediocre to exceeding. You have to be willing to lose everything but have extreme confidence in what you believe in. That’s what separates you from being average to being great. It adds character to your journey. I personally have taken many risks to reach my potential in my music career. It took many years of dedication and trials for me to grow and make wise decisions. Taking risks has impacted my career positively and has helped me in the aspect of knowing what outlets to use to market my brand.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
My journey is different. I started rapping in 2016 with a rap collective called 100 House. Blame Parkway started the collective which consisted of 4-8 rappers, including my husband 2wotone. Blame Parkway passed away and we decided to keep the brand and movement he started going in honor of him. 2wotone and I made 100 House Entertainment a Indie Label. I started to take my career seriously in 2020. The pandemic brought a different energy into my life which caused me to put everything else I had going on on hold. I strictly focused on branding myself and creating more music to drop on all platforms. The name Glow came from the glow I have , my shine, and my energy. Glow Way came from a saying that I always say “the Glow Way or No Way”. Music is truly my passion. I started playing instruments at a young age and I also sung in the choir at my middle school. That eventually graduated to me finding my voice with rap. Rapping to me started as an outlet to express my feelings. I used to be the type of person to hide how I feel. The more I started rapping, the more vocal I became with expressing myself. If I’m happy I’ll make a happy vibe song. I make music based on my moods. Throughout my journey I have learned to stay true to myself, put my all in everything I do, and to make sure everything I drop is on the same level professionally as industry artists. Quality is better than Quantity.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would first go to BQE restaurant and lounge for a brunch. The next stop would be an attraction such as, Dave and Busters, Andrettis, Midtown Bowl, or axe throwing. Also I would go to a selfie museum because I love taking pictures and looking good. For dinner I would go to Anatolias Hookah Cafe and eat lamb chops with white rice and asparagus. For drinks I would go to a Mexican restaurant and order margaritas. For a night hang out I would go to Odyssey Lounge or Suite Food Lounge.
