Boston hip-hop artist Glvsshouse reflects on life with ‘Broken & Lost’

Glvsshouse, a name fit for the artist who uses his music to reflect his emotions back to his listeners, has recently released his brand new song, ‘Broken & Lost’. The Boston hip-hop artist hopes to reconnect with his listeners and show them who he is.

“I write songs based on emotion and if you throw a rock at a glasshouse, it shatters so it kind of reflects on my music very well”

We at Kulture Hub had the opportunity to interview him and learn just how dope he was for ourselves.

KH: What made you decide to use music as your way of expressing yourself?

Music has been an outlet for my emotions and I have a lot of mental issues and stuff, I talk about it in my music like my anxiety and music was just a way for me to vent about certain situations that can’t just be talked about and I can put it into song

KH: When you produce your songs, what is the most important thing you keep in mind? Specific lyrics, trends, sounds?

I love punk rock music and I love hip-hop so I always try to blend the two together whenever I’m making music. Those are two things that I definitely think of when I’m creating new music.

How can I incorporate punk rock background with trendy new hip hop?

I’m always supporting new hip-hop artists like Pop Smoke is probably my favorite artist right now and I can go from listening to Pop Smoke to putting on a Mayday Parade album. 

I love music like that, I grew up on music like that so when I can go back and forth between the two, something like Juice Wrld to Mayday Parade, I always do stuff like that

Every time I’m making a song, i’m always blending genres together

KH: Congratulations on being featured on Pharrell William’s ‘I am OTHER’ brand! How did you hear about it and what was the submission process like? How did you feel when you found out you were featured and what does it mean for you?

It’s a major look for me, I’m super excited about that

It’s amazing to be part of a dope collaboration like that but at the end of the day, I do this stuff every day, I’m always trying to get my music in front of people so whether it’s submitting something or having my manager make a play, I’m really grateful for any opportunity I get.

There’s going to be a lot more coming up so I’m not going to think too much about this but like I said, this is my life, I make music all the time and I’m hoping for situations like this to be pretty familiar. 

KH: I saw that you recently put out a new song, (Broken & Lost), what was the inspiration behind it?

It’s based on past relationships and issues, mentally that I’ve dealt with that goes on the table, I’ve dealt with a lot of stuff in life, it’s not always easy so sometimes you take it out on, for instance, drugs or whatever it may be.

I think the inspiration behind that song was really just me trying to show that I deal with things in a certain way, sometimes I do smoke a lot of weed and I do get caught up at the time but at the end of the day, there’s going to be a light at the end of the tunnel. 

KH: Your EP Vacant dropped a couple of months ago, did you have a specific concept behind it and some of the topics you explored?

VACANT was an EP,  a collaboration with my friend Donald Grunge and I met him probably a year and a half ago in California, and we’ve just been working ever since.

We both make music to vent about personal stuff going on so it’s just a collaboration of us two about things that were going on in our lives.

KH: What message do you hope your audience takes from your music?

I just hope anyone who’s listening can relate to my music, I make music that’s all about feelings and so I hope someone can relate to it and feel better about themselves after listening to it.  

KH: Based on your musical career so far, what is the biggest piece of advice you have?

To keep on going, keep going and don’t stop because good things are on the way. You might suck for five, maybe 10 years but you’re always going to get better if you keep going, keep being consistent

If you had to choose one song to show a brand new listener that describes you the best, what song would it be and why?

Right now, listen to Grave. That’s a very personal song to me about how I keep my word on things, that’s a really good intro to show someone if they’re just starting to listen to my music. 

KH: Are there any goals you would like to accomplish before the year is over?

I think my biggest goal which is pretty similar to a lot of artists is I wanna sell out an arena in my hometown, so the Boston Garden and we’re going to do that. It might not be the year then but within the next couple of years, we’ll be there.

KH: Is there anything you’d like to say your listeners before we sign off?

I got a lot of music on the way, everyone that’s been supporting me from the beginning, I love you guys.

Anyone that’s listening that’s new, check out my latest single ‘Broken and Lost’ anywhere you can download music from.

If you’re a new artist starting to make music, keep going, don’t stop. There’s a lot of downfalls but there’s a lot of upsides to it too and it takes a long time, it’s not going to happen overnight.

Singing about his experiences, how he deals with his mental health, Glvsshouse is an artist that does his best to show his listeners the real him.

Be sure to check out his latest single, ‘Broken & Lost’, and be sure to follow him on Instagram and Spotify for the latest updates about his music!

The Earth is round BUT Kyrie Irving made the Celtics lit again

Ever since news broke this summer that Kyrie Irving wanted out of Cleveland, and more specifically away from LeBron James, Kyrie been an easy target for slander.

Coupled with the fact that he keeps saying kind of weird, dumb shit, and everyone is coming for Kyrie lately.

But, through all the hate, the mud-slinging, the controversy surrounding his ideas about the Earth maybe being flat, and his new running mate suffering a horrific leg injury minutes into the season, Kyrie and the Celtics are fuckin’ balling.

Yes, it’s early in the season (it’s really early in the season), but no one expected the Celtics to be playing like this. After losing the first two games of the season, the Celtics have won nine straight and sit atop the Eastern Conference at 9-2.

Fivethirtyeight (which has never predicted anything wrong to my knowledge) ran a piece the day after Gordon Hayward’s injury projecting the Celtics to win 37 games. Much of this forecast relied upon conservative projections for 2nd-year swingman Jaylen Brown and rookie Jayson Tatum.

So far, Brown is averaging 15.4 ppg and 6.4 rebounds a game and Tatum is averaging 14.3 ppg and 6.5 rebounds (have I mentioned that it’s early in the season?).

Brown and Tatum are representative of the team-building strategy Boston GM Danny Ainge has used over the past couple years. Ainge has done extremely well in the draft, taking Brown and Tatum over the past two years when other talent evaluators saw other players as superior options.

But young, promising players like Brown and Tatum, as well as Marcus Smart, Terry Rozier, and even Daniel Theis, don’t typically translate into wins. And people around the NBA wondered when Ainge would do something with his ridiculous collection of assets. Well, the past two summers Ainge has added Al Horford, Gordon Hayward, and Irving.

Irving and Horford are making the Celtics, who have the 5th youngest roster in the NBA, contenders.

Against Oklahoma City on Friday, Kyrie dropped 22 points in the 2nd half as the Celtics overcame a 55-37 halftime deficit to beat Russell Westbrook, Paul George, Melo, and the Thunder.

In the 4th quarter against the Thunder, Kyrie showed the cold bloodedness that’s made him one of the best closers in basketball. He killed the Thunder with a variety of wild dribbling moves, playing off big man Al Horford’s pick and pops, and sinking shots late in the shot clock.

It’s clear that Melo, PG, and Russ are still taking time to adjust and the Thunder are far from the finished product, but one of the most fascinating things to see with the Celtics this season is how seamlessly Kyrie has integrated into and become the Celtics offense.

Horford and Irving have wild chemistry already, working a devastating pick and pop that can be suicide for opposing defenders choosing to bottle up a Kyrie drive or leave the suddenly sharpshooting Horford on the perimeter.

Irving can also work off Horford when the big man has the ball. Horford is one of the best passing big men in the NBA and he continuously finds Irving on cuts to the basket with precision passes.

After an underwhelming first year in Boston where he looked kind of lost at times, Al Horford is thriving with Irving. These dudes clearly love playing with each other and are feeding off their respective skillsets.

Last night, in a surprisingly close game against the 2-8 Hawks, Kyrie’s highlight plays dotted social media.

His handles are unstoppable and he can sink virtually any shot on the court, it makes him virtually impossible to defend (look at Dennis Schroeder sprint away from Kyrie in confusion or self-preservation).

The Celtics have surrounded Irving with spot up shooters and athletes that perfectly complement his game.

If Irving drives to the basket and gets doubled, he can find Horford springing to the top of the key for a 3, or a Brown and Tatum corner 3 or drive to the basket.

Late in last night’s game, while trailing to the Hawks with under two minutes to play, Kyrie hit a 3 off some great two man work with Horford. Then Tatum hit a corner 3 off a pass from Marcus Smart to retake the lead that the Celtics would never give up.

It’s pretty damn impressive how well Tatum (19) and Brown (21) have dealt with the workload and pressure this season in their respective rookie and 2nd seasons.

The only teams younger than the Celtics are the 76ers, the Lakers, the Suns, and the Bulls, none of which will sniff the playoffs (barring a wild run by Philly). This is representative of both how much the Celtics are asking of Tatum and Brown, but also how well they’ve responded to that ask.

After the game, Kyrie was asked about Tatum’s go-ahead shot. He didn’t seem overly impressed with the rookie, saying he’d be cursing Tatum out if he didn’t shoot it,

“That pass has to be made. And (Tatum) has to shoot it. And if he doesn’t shoot it, then I’m going to be right in his face telling him that he needs to (bleeping) shoot it.”

Tatum had 21 and 8 last night and his early season numbers (it’s still early by the way) put him in pretty unique company.

While it may seem like tough love, Kyrie’s assertion that Tatum ‘has to shoot it’ shows that he’s settling into his role as a leader on the Celtics.

It’s not much unlike his former teammate LeBron James’ attitude towards role players on his team, if you’re being put in a position to succeed, you better capitalize.

But ultimately, this Celtics team is winning because of their defense. After having a pretty porous defense last season (ranked 13th out of 30), Boston is now 1st in defensive rating, according to Basketball Reference. This effort is shockingly being led by Kyrie Irving, who leads the league in steals per game so far.

It’s not just Kyrie though. The Celtics are playing stifling defense with a group of long-armed athletes that swarm the opponent and can switch across multiple positions.

Brown and Tatum nominally start at the shooting guard and wing, but both spend time playing power forward in head coach Brad Stevens’ fun small lineups, showing their versatility.

Currently Horford and Irving are the two top players in the NBA in defensive win shares (an advanced stat that measures defensive output), while Brown and Tatum are 4th and 6th in the league respectively.

Anyone who watched Irving during his time in Cleveland, or Duke for that matter, didn’t see any possibility of him becoming an elite defender.

Yes, it’s early (it’s really early) but the Celtics have crafted a damn good team with a damn good system from Brad Stevens, that will make them contenders in the East despite Hayward’s injury.

After years of being the feel-good story, a team of gritty competitors, the Celtics now have a legitimate star in Kyrie Irving. They may end up falling short of the Cavaliers or the Warriors this season, but they’re building a juggernaut for the future.

And in the meantime, they’re must-watch TV (stop being a bum and cop League Pass).

Kyrie Irving is still trippin’, claims there are no real pictures of Earth

#FakeWoke Kyrie is back.

Back in 2017, Kyrie Irving claimed that the Earth may indeed be flat while speaking on Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye’s ‘Road Tripping Podcast’.

Then in September, Kyrie claimed that he wasn’t necessarily standing by his earlier comments BUT he wanted to start a dialogue:

“Look, look. Here it is. All I want to do is be able to have that open conversation. It was all an exploitation tactic. It literally spun the world — your guy’s world — it spun it into a frenzy and proved exactly what I thought it would do in terms of how all this works. It created a division, or, literally stand up there and let all these people threw tomatoes at me, or have somebody think I’m somehow a different intellectual person because I believe that the Earth is flat and you think the world is round. It created exactly that.”

Last week, Kyrie was a guest on UCONN Women’s Basketball coach Geno Auriemma’s new ‘Holding Court Podcast’ and wanted to clarify his comments about the Earth’s shape:

“The whole intent behind it, Coach, it wasn’t to bash science. It wasn’t to like have the intent of starting a rage and be seen as this insane individual. When I started seeing comments and things about universal truths that I had known, like I had questions.”

Kyrie went on to say he’s done the research and that there are NO REAL PICTURES OF EARTH:

“When I started actually doing research on my own and figuring out that there is no real picture of Earth, not one real picture of Earth — and we haven’t been back to the moon since 1961 or 1969 — it becomes like conspiracy, too.”

There are indeed many real pictures of Earth.

As a Celtics fan, I’m just gonna go ahead and say Kyrie is playing with everyone and you’re all being punked. Keep balling Kyrie and uh just relax with the Earth stuff.

Kyrie Irving says Boston is ‘real sports city,’ takes veiled shots at Cleveland

Mmm, NBA drama.

Kyrie Irving spilled all the tea while talking about settling into his new city of Boston and comparing it to Cleveland.

Irving, who went to high school in New Jersey and whose dad Drederick played for Boston University, told the Boston Globe during shootaround yesterday,

“It’s exciting to be back on the East Coast. It’s fast-paced. A lot of different cultures, food, and people. You get it all, especially in Boston. I was talking to my best friend the other day: It’s a really major city.”

That’s legit, Kyrie is an East Coast dude and Boston has that energy, especially when it comes to sports. But the real juice in these quotes is what Kyrie had to say about Cleveland. It wasn’t the most complimentary thing ever. Irving said of Cleveland,

“Coming from Cleveland, the Midwest, where the culture is different. And then you move to the East Coast — into Boston — and it’s so real [and] alive. An ongoing, thriving city. Consistently. No matter what hour throughout the night.”

First off, relax Kyrie stop going to the club.

But Irving pointed out that the Midwest and the East Coast are very different and that Boston is a ‘real, live sports city,’

“You would go to Cleveland, and it would be at nighttime, and things would be going on, but you just see a vast difference in terms of what the Midwest is — Cleveland — and what Boston is. Boston, I’m driving in and [thinking], ‘I’m really playing in a real, live sports city?’ And a great city.”

I’m sure Cleveland fans will take this right in stride and not take offense to Kyrie’s comments whatsoever!

Realistically, this is hilarious. Kyrie didn’t really say anything all that bad, but surely this will turn into a whole thing because everyone feeds off drama in the NBA. LeBron will probably say some petty shit (remember when he decided to leave Cleveland for South Beach?) and Kyrie will be (even more) vilified in Cleveland.

All of this just adds extra fuel to the fire of the budding Celtics Cavaliers rivalry, which is about to be electric as fuck this season.

Especially after Isaiah Thomas, who was traded for Irving, said that he will never forgive Boston GM Danny Ainge for what he did. Thomas told Sports Illustrated,

“Boston is going to be all love. I might not ever talk to Danny again. That might not happen. I’ll talk to everybody else. But what he did, knowing everything I went through, you don’t do that, bro. That’s not right. I’m not saying eff you. But every team in this situation comes out a year or two later and says, ‘We made a mistake.’ That’s what they’ll say, too.”

As I’ve said before, seeing Thomas in a Cavs uniform is gonna suck. But Kyrie Irving, along with Gordon Hayward, brings a whole new dimension to this Celtics team.


Peep the ball movement.

Oh boy, I am excited to watch this Celtics team. The Celtics and Cavs will kick off the NBA season next Tuesday and there will be so much damn narrative.

Tuesday can’t come soon enough.
