*Interview* G Gutta

Tae: Tell me a little about yourself.

G Gutta: I am G Gutta, a 28 year-old hip-hop emcee, spokesperson for real issues. I come from a little city called Carver Ranches in Florida maybe ten minutes away from Miami.I represent what I like to call Real Rap. Unlike many of the newer and older artists, I take to the time to look into real issues that hold the youth of our generation down and expose them in my music. Conscience rapper? NO, I speak it in terms that pretty much anyone can understand.

Tae: What got you into music and production work?

G Gutta: I got into music in like 1995, after hearing how many artists back then wrote about problems in their neighborhoods, families, and just spoke from the heart. I was like 15-16 then, and like “damn, I got problems too maybe I should start writing about them”. Not until I got into high school, did I want to actually start learning to produce and put it all out to the world.

Tae: Who would you say has influenced you musically?

G Gutta: As far as influences go, Tupac is the most influential to me. That man is like the epitome of real, he just speaks his mind no matter who’s listening. Andre 3000 of Outkast, Scarface, are a few more artists that really had an impact on the way I write and deliver. Im influenced by most of the artists from the 90’s, these new artists, have no substance in their music so I don’t waste my time listening. Not knocking their hustle though. LOL

Tae: What do you think is missing most from hip hop right now?

G Gutta: ATTN: HIP HOP IS MISSING THE TRUTH! Everybody thinks its all glitz and glam in this game, only because all the artists out now do is show the good side of it. They don’t tell about the grind it took to get there, how shady the folk are in the business aspect. All they do is throw money up in videos, flash jewelry, and show off the cars. Now you tell me, if 100,000 kids are watching you as a role model, is that the message you want to send out to em? Tell the good, the bad and the ugly.

Tae: What upcoming projects are you working on now?

G Gutta: Right now I’m working on a mixtape series called Real Rap. I have no clue how many different volumes there will be but, it’s an attempt to send a better message or image of rap music. The first volume of the series is hosted by Gunplay of Triple C’s, which will be released in the spring of this year.

Tae: How can people get in touch with you?

G Gutta: Well they can follow me on twitter, check out the myspace page and if anybody has any personal questions they can even hit may fan email I’m real down to earth, so holla at me and I will definitely holla back.

Tae: Thank you again for your time, is there anything you would like to add?

G Gutta: Thank you for taking your time to interview me, I appreciate it greatly. I just want everybody checking in to look out for the Real Rap series, if you enjoy good rap music. God Bless You All!
