Lock the Hood Down – [G.T.]

Many obvious names come to mind when considering who the best or most versatile artist from Detroit is, as numerous have innovated across a number of sounds and gone on to find major mainstream success, and while the subject of today’s article is certainly carving out a dedicated cult following despite not yet having an individual song cross over into the general public’s conscious. G.T. for one has been incredibly prolific over the last year or two, putting out a bulk of solo music but also blessing countless tracks as a featured artist who is able to unload his ambitious rhymes over instrumentals of any pace, but also has the vocal versatility to be able to transition between passages of rapping and melodic singing with ease, presenting a wrinkle in his music that many of his Motor City counterparts lack. His new visual for his track “Lock the Hood Down” was my favorite off of his new project Money Counter Music, Vol. 1 as he glides over a Michigan Meech produced instrumental which is driven by a fast-paced, spellbinding melody accented by frenetic drums but G.T. hops on the beat like a poised veteran point guard, not overly pressed to 

Used To Hit The Road / OG – [G.T.]

Detroit, Michigan’s G.T. continues to prove himself to be one of the very smoothest artists out of a city that is teaching the rest of the industry how to move and has been a model of consistency in the process, showing other young artists just how willing you have to be to see the process through and give your fans new material no matter what. His rise to the top has been slower than many other overnight sensations from his city, but rather than be skyrocketed into the mainstream overnight, his meticulous come-up has given him a dedicated cult-following as a by-product that is certain to support him for a long time to come. Over the past two weeks G.T. has unloaded a pair of new visuals with his ambitious track “Used To Hit The Road” where he chronicles the risks he had to take to get to his money and explains that the initial drive from how he first made his money influences his hustle now that he is in the rap game. His other visual to “OG” is more subdued and slow-burning in comparison but is still rife with the streetwise wisdom that his fans love so much 

Kill Bill – [G.T.]

Detroit rapper G.T. has been one of the most underrated figures in a densely talented and wildly popular rap scene that has birthed the careers of many of music’s newest stars in the past year or two, but G.T. is looking poised to elevate above his current position in his scene’s standings and establish himself within the mainstream alongside his fellow Motion Gang members. G.T.’s flow are just as effortless as his fellow Motor City artists and delivers his lyrics in a manner that is noticeably nonchalant while also very seasoned and well-informed, never ever sounding flustered or rattled. On his newest visual for “Kill Bill” we hear G.T. take on a stripped back and guitar laced instrumental that is slower than most Detroit songs but still has a noticeable Detroit tempo that makes it easy for him to walk on the beat with such style.

Call Me GT – [G.T.]

Detroit rapper and Motion Gang member G.T. has been setting his city on fire alongside his Motion Family affiliates Babyface Ray and Veeze and is back with a new project that follows his project Merciless that initially put him on the radars of many, but Call Me G.T. is still without a question a coming out party of sorts and could not have released at a more opprotune moment with the momentum of Babyface Ray who is looking like he will be the next artist to explode from the Motor City on a mainstream scale. G.T. is getting closer to his goals with this latest project and standout tracks like “Chosen,” “Joe Montana,” and assisted “Fade Away” help document his constant growth as a musician. Call Me G.T. shows the Detroit rapper at his most vulnerable. The passion in his voice bleeds through over some of his most advanced production so far. Consistency is what separates G.T. from the rest of the pack. You would be hard-pressed to find someone who wants to succeed more than him. In typical Detroit fashion G.T. recruited a very solid list of features for the project including hometown guests own Icewear Vezzo, Veeze, Babyface Ray, the freshy freed Peezy, Baby
