G.T. known by most as one of Houston’s hottest DJ, both on and off the air and is increasing becoming known for his innovative unheard of lyrics on the mic. With G.T. abbreviated for gifted and talented, his story is like none other and is considered one of a kind.
As a true lover of hip hop music, G.T. was drawn to the mic at an early age, “I was always a rapper…I DJ to support my rap career,” says GT, clearing all preconceived notions.
During his college years at Texas Southern University, he linked up with future friend and business partner DJ Steve Nice. With limited funds to support his music career, GT decided to take a shot at radio to pay for his first album expenses, which featured the hit song “Our House.”
In 1999, GT founded Key Players Entertainment to pursue his career as an artist while holding it down at 97.9 The Box creating a name for himself in radio as the ‘only DJ that gives a jam.’
Continuously holding his own as a recognized DJ in the south and nominated consecutively for the Mix Show Power Summit’s “Dirty South DJ of the Year” Award, GT released his first single ‘You Don’t Want To,’ from his solo album “HTX.” The song swept urban night clubs away by storm and became Texans first hip hop anthem.
G.T. is set to release his new highly anticipated album this fall. He plans on making more waves than radio imagined with the love and support from the public and the industry alone. G.T. a.k.a the renaissance man of hip hop is consistently lyrically versatile and talented both on the mic and the serato.
G.T. is a proud member of the 2009 Black Entertainment Television Awards.
