East Coast Artist, Glointrovany comes through with “Full Counter”

Born and raised in Philadelphia, PA, Glointrovany understands that the race towards success is a marathon, rather than a sprint, and displays a dedication that feeds on rejection. He’s learned that true artists aren’t defined by the birth of a masterpiece, but by the trials of misconception. He perceives growth not as an enemy that can be defeated by time, but as an ally that defies it. His parents, both Haitian, divorced a few months before his birth. His mother was the primary caretaker and was relatively restrictive and overprotective. Forbidden the freedom of movement enjoyed by most of his peers, Glo’s escape was the untethered reach of the internet. Especially enamored with Linkin Park’s AMVs, anime and music proved to be the silver lining in his cloud of isolation. Like most rappers his age, Glo grew up listening to Hip-hop legends like Drake, Future, and Lil Wayne. What separates him from many of his counterparts is the almost equal affinity he has for rock bands, such as My Chemical Romance, Papa Roach, and System of a Down. It’s that balance of conflicting sounds that shaped his resistance to the confines of any particular style or genre.


At 15, Glo converted his savings into a makeshift studio. After a chance meeting with Danny G, an aspiring producer turned lifelong friend, Glointrovany hit the grindstone. Believing his hard work would translate into a solid record, Glo hit the booth with a level of confidence that only served to intensify the crippling blow when the booth hit him back. The record was “garbage”.

Ready to throw in the towel, Glo credits Uzi Vert for turning a permanent retirement into a brief hiatus. Uzi was tantamount to a walking mirror, reflecting an image that Glo saw as himself. Equally reassured by the rise of XXXtentacion, he recognized the fact that “oddballs” too have an avenue for self-expression. Back in the driver’s seat, a familiar twist of fate brought his dream to a crashing halt.

As a senior, Glointrovany approached a group of 3 rappers he knew, hoping to earn a spot on their team. Rather than acceptance, he was injected with a dose of repudiation that coursed through his veins. Feeling defeated once again, Glo gave up on music and enrolled in college. Dissatisfied with the classroom and working dead-end jobs, he took a hammer to his piggy bank, an Uber to the studio, and the chip on his shoulder into the booth. The rest is history.
