GloRilla, Rapper and Songwriter, has rocketed to the top of Hip Hop’s charts and become a global star with her outgoing personality, her unique country accent and innocence through brutal honesty and always being her country self. Ahead of her music tour this summer and releasing a new mixtape, Glo spent some time with Ryan, Channing and Fred in NYC chatting about her journey into music, growing up, her inspirations and how a young girl from Tennessee made it out of the country onto music’s biggest stages.  

Born Gloria Hallelujah Woods, the Memphis native known as GloRilla, has carved a niche in the hip hop world doing it her way and by being 100% her authentic self, has written hits true to her life experiences and life perspective. Growing up being homeschooled and singing in the church choir, GloRilla lost her voice one day which prompted her to change from singing to rapping, still following her music dreams and performing aspirations. She shares with the guys that her first big hit came from heartbreak and in 2022, her song “F.N.F” went viral and later led to two nominations at the 2022 BET Hip Hop Awards. 

Opening up to the guys about her dating life and how she feels towards men right now, Glo talks about her hurtful experiences which have made her look at love differently and even explore abstinence before realizing she didn’t want to take her feelings that far but it did boost her songwriting turning her experiences into lyrics and being able to move a certain way of being unapproachable by men and dedicated to her craft. 

Building off her early music success, Glo’s 2024 single “Yeah Glo!” became her second song to reach the top 40, and continuing to broaden her reach, GloRilla is preparing to go on tour with Megan Thee Stallion, releasing a mixtape with collaborations with Megan, MoneyBagg Yo and other artists.  

With the love of New Orleans food and a die hard Steelers fan, Glo and Ryan connect on the winning traditions, the Super Bowl win over the Cardinals and love for Mike Tomlin as Glo talks about recently getting to meet him and her expectations that with new Quarterback Russell Wilson, the Pittsburgh Steelers will be playing for ring number 7 in her favorite city of New Orleans this coming NFL season.  

With no dream to small and artists like Beyonce, Rhianna and Justin Timberlake on Glo’s wishlist to work with, there is no sign of slowing up anytime soon for the young rapper.
