Reppin’: Gary, IN
I’ve Been rapping since: I first started producing and making beats in high school about 7 years ago. It all came together after college and blossomed I guess about 3 years ago when I started taking it all seriously and trying to pursue it music as a career.
My style and/or skills have been compared to: I have my own sound. My goal anytime I make a record is to not have someone say “Yo he sounds just like…,” but people have compared me to Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco and Kid Cudi simply cause of the style of music and because I’m from the Mid-west. But I’d like to think I can’t be compared. I’m just trying to do my own thing.
My standout records and/or moments have been: Performing at the Metro in Chicago with Chip Tha Ripper and Kid Cudi is still one of my standout moments. I remember about a year before that show I was there for a Curren$y concert thinking, “Yeah, I’m going to be on that stage one day killin sh*t.” And a year later… wala magic. As far as stand out records, I’d have to say “Folded.” It’s THAT record. We put it out along with a video before the release of my latest project “Weekend in Los Vegas” and the reception was great. We’re planning on releasing it on a wider scale so it gets the full attention it deserves.
I’m gonna change the game by: Changing the way people view and perceive hip-hop. In my opinion, the game has lost a lot of creativity as far as mainstream artists go (aside from the Kanye’s and Jay-Z’s of the game). I wanna show you can still be an artist and still have creativity and authenticity in your music without having to sacrifice “yourself” to sell records. I’ve got a story to tell, that only I can tell and every chapter of that story will be told.
I’d Like to Work With: John Mayer, Mayer Hawthorne, Coldplay, Timbaland, Outkast, Lupe Fiasco, Kanye West, Cudi, The Neptunes, Cardo and Black Hippy.
My goal in hip-hop is: Is to reach the people. I’m not trying to be the best rapper alive or the most lyrical emcee. I honestly just want to be a great artist that at the end of the day touched somebody and made them feel like, “Yo this n*gga is talking to me right now; someone understands and feels what I’m going through.” I make music for the people with big dreams who don’t always know how to start reaching for them.
I’m gonna be the next: Next up out of Indiana, but I’m cool being the only G-Scott.
