G3MZ ~ TEAM N.A.N. REPRESENTER!!!! GET ACQUAINTED!! A MUST!!
G3MZ was born in the spring of 1983, when a fresh and new genre of music was developing and emerging on the New York City streets. Being raised in the heart of BROOKLYN made it inescapable and a natural addition to life. As he aged, he was amazed by the rhythmic dances and beats, but most importantly the lyrics that these masters of ceremony spoke. At home, his family would play a range of music from Hector Levoe and Tito Puente to the Motown sounds of Smokey Robinson and Diana Ross to Hip Hop legends Run DMC and Rakim, which all influenced his musical path.
While in elementary school, G3MZ started scribbling his emotions on paper. As he went into Junior High, he suddenly had a collection of different books of rhymes. Many of the collections came and went through the years. Determined and consistently working on his craft, he built his own in-home studio where he began recording and making his own beats. He would pump out new material every week, showcasing his talent to friends and family. With great response and praise to his lyrical masterpieces fueled G3MZ hunger and drive to officially give it to the streets.
As the years passed and he progressed, he’s gained more knowledge of the lyrical, technical, and commercial sides of Hip Hop. He partnered with the young and hungry emcee OSIRIS aka “OS” and they began showcasing their talent at local NYC clubs meeting and networking with AAA LIST ENT. (NY), ADANTE ACE (AOS ENT), ED LOVER of Power 105.1 FM, RAEKWON the CHEF (Wu Tang), DJ
KAY SLAY (STREET SWEEPERS), MAD LINX, and many more established and up and coming artist.
Since then, G3MZ expanded his horizons and branched out to the Midwest, Kansas City, Mo . He opened up shows for West Coast headliner THE JACKA (MOBB FIGGA’S) and performed at the double mix tape release party for MELENA (LOOSE CHANGE PRODUCTIONS, KC), SQUIKEE (CHOP SHOP SOUTH, TN), and MS. FEFE (LEGAL CRIME RECORDS, KC). After those performances, STICKY ICKY ENT approached him to be the only out-of-town feature on THE MIDDLE OF THE MAP COMPILATION, gaining artist and production credits.
After making his mark in the Midwest, G3MZ relocates back to
Brooklyn to continue building a foundation in Hip Hop’s Mecca. Him and Ms. FeFe linked up with A.D. THE GENERAL (A-TEAM ENT.) and they began performing at THE ELEGANT HOODNESS SHOWASE, eventually co-creating THE ELEGANT HOODNESS OPENMIC, which ran successfully. He also was apart of THE ELEGANT HOODNESS PARK TOUR ’08/’09.
Future goals are in his vision. He’s fully focused on what needs to be done and what has to be accomplished to be a great emcee and businessman. With his mix tape THEORY OF INTELLIGENCE VOL. 1, working with TAZDATMC (SEATTLE) putting together STREETZ ORIGINATED VOLS. 1,2, and 3, as well as a collaboration album with The Ballstar and Ms. FeFe (B.F.G/N.A.B) entitled B.uilt F.or G.reatness, G3MZ has many other projects, features, and production credits under his belt working the underground circuit. His debut album “B4 DA BEGINNING” was recorded, mixed, and produced by G3MZ himself for his HIGH HATS PRODUCTIONS imprint. It doesn’t stop there as he continues to record and perform, building a grassroots fan base of REAL PEOPLE that appreciate REAL MUSIC.
