When Austin, Texas rapper Gerald G declares “only dream I ever had was put the hood on the map,” he’s making it his primary duty to take hip-hop back to its territorial essence. Be it Boogie Down Productions shouting “South Bronx” in ’86 or the Terrorists echoing “South Park” in ’95, Gerald recognizes the value of rap music as a means to instill pride within an entire community otherwise left for mandated decay. Gerald G aka Geezy was born in Compton, California, yet moved to Austin’s historic Eastside when he was merely 4 years old. Attracted during the 90’s to the voracious speed raps put forth by the likes of Twista, 2Pac, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, and ESG, Gerald G swiftly fashioned himself as a skilled engineer of highly syncopated, double-timed flow. As the new millennium kicked in, Gerald forcefully emerged as Austin’s most frequent show-stopping freestyler as he demanded the spotlight opening for many major label headliners including Lil Wayne, Three 6 Mafia, Bun B, Killer Mike , Ice Cube and many other major recording artists. Gerald G established Monsta Entertainment in 2003 as his self-owned vehicle for business ventures done on his own terms. The most spectacular result of Geezy’s newfound affiliation unveiled itself in Gerald G’s own Mr. 512 mix cd.
