AU: What is the concept behind the project?
GM: GH2 is about me living life, having fun and being able to spread my wings. Now, I am able to become the artist, I really wanted to be.
Before this project, I was in a dark place and I used music as a form of therapy.
AU: Before Glass House 2, you had the opportunity to work with Akron, Birdman and Lil Wayne how did all that transpire?
GM: I believe they felt the authenticity in me and they were able to verify, the type of person I was in the streets.
People in the streets do get out.
AU: Why the name Glasses Malone?
GM: I have been Glasses for a long time. It started off as a joke and people made fun of me, because I could not see.
Now, I have taken the name and built it up.
AU: The majority of the project, you produce. How did you get started producing?
GM: I started producing to make better records. If you have a song and there is a story behind it, you have to be able to make the music to tell the story.
I believe it comes with the territory.
AU: How did you link up with Kendrick Lamar?
GM: Kendrick Lamar is my little brother. I have stood back and watched him grow into the success he is today.
Kendrick was on my third mixtape.
AU: Why the creation of Division Media Corporation?
GM: I created Division Media Corporation, because I wanted to provide the world with a wide variety of content, from visual to audio.
AU: Any touring set up?
GM: No touring set up at this time. However, I should be on the road, soon.
