Where do you hail from?

A product of Greenburgh Public Housing in New York by way of East Atlanta…DeCatur, Georgia…Zone 6.
How did your artist name come about?
Originally my name GATTIE THA KING was GATTI (going all-out to take it), GATT (E-Everything) And it came from what I embody…. AMBITION 

 

How long have you been making music?

I’m a 25 year over night success. I penned my first rap in 1993. I got off the porch early. My big bro J-Edifice was producing beats for the entire Greenburgh housing projects. So I was around rap and hip hop culture my entire life. I been around analog and digital that’s why I coined the phrase “retro rap”. I’m like the Jordan’s. When I come out I’m vintage and classic but modernized for today’s times.

How would you describe the sound around your music, the background/inspirations behind it?

It’s just a 90’s feel and approach. The sound and beats are today’s time, but the beats don’t dictate my writing and concepts. When you hear “The Master P Song” you won’t be thrown off when “Barbarians” come on and you hear a wu-tang ish type record with no hook, just 5 artists doing what they feel over some gangsta beat.

How do you spend your time outside of the business?

It’s all about my daughter and my spiritual, mental, and physical growth.

What are your current thoughts of the music business in 2018?

It’s good because you can quickly identify the problem with it. It makes my job easier.

What have you got planned for the near future?

Linked Up films will wrap up its first movie project starring myself at the end of the year. Our Linked Up clothing line will expand into sweatsuits, accessories, and sneakers. The book 10 Modern Types Of Women is currently going through negotiations with a major publisher. I hope that pans out because it’s a good look.

What inspires you when you make your music?

The very things music is lacking.
