$ubjectz is a New York artist coming from Brentwood, NY. He’s mostly known for his project with Cameron Azi called GCSY which is an acronym for “God Can’t Save You”.
He started making music by the age of twelve; producing for local artists in his neighborhood. At 15, he started making music on his own and joined a collective called “SLV” (Superlative) which later became 0500XGCSY. 0500 is distinct from GCSY though they often collaborate. 0500 has a more mainstream appeal while GCSY focuses on making heavy music.
During this time, Subjectz was having bouts with depression which was a big reason for his deepening passion for music. He used music as a coping mechanism for his struggles as an adolescent and young adult. In 2015, GCSY became the official name of his collaborative effort with his friend Cameron Azi. They were the first people to call their hardcore Hip Hop style as “trap metal” though have since distanced themselves from the label. One of their biggest hits in their early days was a collaboration with fellow NYC rapper ZillaKami called “AREYOUREADYKIDS?”. The song is an underground classic to this day.
Trap music is one of the biggest influences on $ubjectz’s sound and style. The NY Drill sound can be heard throughout his body of work. He draws much of his inspiration from Kanye West, Kid Cudi, Souja Boy and Chief Keef. Souja Boy sparked his passion for producing while Kanye West taught him to always be himself and stay innovative. When he was depressed, it was Kid Cudi who gave him the courage to keep going and to this day $ubjectz hopes to the same for the people who listen to his music.
$ubjectz has been surrounded by heavy music since he was young; his siblings were particularly fond of Nu Metal and Hard Rock. His favorite bands include System Of A Down, Korn and Marylin Manson. His singing style draws heabily from Korn frontman Jonathon Davis and from System of a Down’s Serj Tankian. Heavy Hip Hop including DMX are instrumental to his aggressive rapping style. All around, $ubjectz is an eclectic musician with eclectic taste.
His group name GCSY (God Can’t Save You) isn’t merely a name for their music. The two primary members; Cameron Azi and $ubjectz see this as a political/social point-of-view and movement. Their hardcore audience can be found with “GCSY” somewhere on their Instagram and Twitter handles. Dozens of videos have been taken with young fans tagging GCSY on buildings or writing the acronym on their face and arms.
In his own unedited words
“The name “GCSY” stands for “GOD CANT SAVE YOU”, the name is meant to make you question us, make you open your ears and eyes to what we really stand for and question your own ideology. The name has its own movement behind it. we want everyone to know you have power over your own life, your own decisions, and can create your own reality. Uplift yourself and the people around you. The broken will prevail, the hated will succeed, the lost will find there way. Use your rage, your sadness, your depression, or even selfishness to fuel you. GCSY is an unstoppable force. Together we grow united through our “fuck you I do what I want” mentality”.
$ubjectz is proud to have reached thousands, maybe even millions of people with his music. He oftens finds himself amazed that his music can inspire and affect individuals in a positive way even though his lyrical content is often angry and depressed. His supporters have told him they use his music as a way of coping with the struggles of adolescence and young adulthood. Even at 21 years old $ubjectz has achieved more than many can dream.
