After making his DopeHouse debut in 2013 with the Kendrick Lamar-assisted “Watts R.I.O.T.,” Gee Watts has lowkey remained one of the most consistent artists doing it today. From his Watts Up mixtape to his 199x LP, the Kansas City emcee has continued to show-and-prove with rhymes tough enough to break your face, and real enough to make the biggest gangsta on Earth stop and say, “damn… true shit.”
“The duality of crac which [both] killed our community and art (music sports fashion) and serves as our saving grace,” Watts explained to TSS. “The pain, the ugly of the crac era served as a platform for beauty. This music is a saving grace, whether it takes me to the Grammys or just a comfortable position to feed the family.”
Produced by Mike Hurst & Bam Keith, “Grammys” can be heard below
And since I somehow missed the first single, I’ve also included the audio and video for “Hallelujah” with Master Rocs.
