Aspiring to be popular in the music industry is a very challenging and uphill journey for almost all artists despite their talent. To really make it in the industry requires more than just talent according to rising hip-hop artist and songwriter Geez Da Gawd, who is on a mission to create impactful songs that will awaken the soul of music lovers all over the world. For him, becoming successful in the music industry also requires humility, patience, perseverance, and resilience.
The 28-year-old artist from Baltimore is fast becoming a household name on various streaming platforms such as Spotify, where artists like G Herbo, Rio Da Yung OG, Sada Baby, Icewear Vezzo, Veeze, and Big Sean are also making waves. Geez Da Gawd is slowly making his name known by creating uncommon hip-hop music that reveals experiences from his life. The music video for his single “Little Brother” that was released seven months ago generated more than 148k views on YouTube. He first launched this single that was produced by Gtrak in 2018.
His motivation for creating his brand of hip-hop music is to simply offer music fans something different. He got tired of hearing a lot of mainstream hip-hop music, so he decided to create music that has a distinct sound. Geez Da Gawd is also motivated by the songs of artists like Tee Grizzly, Peezy, Babyface Ray, Lil Dirk, Party Next Door, Future, and Young Thug.
“I wanted something I could call my own. Originality and authenticity goes a long way and I’ve always had my own way of doing things. So basically I just needed to give my originality a name, it was always there. I wanted to have something that my people would be proud to see and hear,” Geez Da Gawd reveals.
Most fans appreciate the rawness of his music from the lyrics to its rhythm and quality. Geez Da Gawd finds great fulfillment in knowing that he is making an influence on his followers’ lives. For him, having his music recognized as life-changing ultimately means he has risen above the noise and has given people something they can be truly proud to sing along with.
“It’s the freedom for me — to be able to create at my own pace. But honestly the most rewarding thing is when people realize how hard you’ve worked to create the art. When they sing every word to you on stage, that energy hits differently. That’s what I do it for,” explains Geez Da Gawd.
He started creating his music five years ago and has been featured in 92Q Jams Baltimore and 93.9 WKYS DC. As he wanted to professionalize his passion, he created his own label, Prominence Records LLC. He never imagined that it would immediately take off, but the business did attract other artists to avail of its services. His greatest motivation for starting the studio is to be able to work in it anytime he wanted without having to wait for the availability of sound engineers and other members of the production staff. Geez Da Gawd currently has a few promising artists signed under his label. His close friend Yahboy Soda will be the first artist Prominence Records will release in the next few months.
Geez Da Gawd is also best known for his self-produced music. He does all the mixing, recording, publishing, and marketing at the same time. He can work on creating several songs in one day and he can do it by himself. It will come as no surprise that he will one day conquer the music industry with his artistry and genuine love for music.
