Emerging rapper Gio Franklin is a man who wears many hats, from rapping, acting, and sports but alas music is his first love. In his single "Fly Away" he delivers a somber and heartfelt tale of love gone sour as he realized that people who he thought were his friends turned their backs on him. Bolstered by the melancholic piano chords and booming trap drum groove, Franklin displays his prowess as a songwriter and arranger, fusing vivid raps with earworm melodic runs that linger on after you stopped listening. The record is quite relatable and will appeal to people that are going through similar situations in these crazy times we live in.
LA-based Gio Franklin started his music career at age 15 when he dropped his debut single and has since dropped two editions of his G-STAR album series. Aside from music, he is also an actor and football player who was featured in the Netflix series Last Chance U. Unfortunately his football stint was truncated when he got injured during his freshman year and he decided to stick to music. He currently runs Apex Records alongside his partner Adam Quinn.
