Some time ago, it has been said that “The world is not ready for some people when they show up”. This holds true for the rap artist Christopher James aka G.U.N. who was raised in the Dallas area with Memphis roots infused with hip-hop. Instead of hanging out with his peers, music of all genres became his outlet by the age of 14. Diligently, James has developed a unique perspective on life and we know it as ”Geeked Up Music”.
G.U.N., an acronym for “Geeked Up Nigga”, is an artist who brings an energy unmatched to the forever evolving world of rap, and influenced artistically by groups such as; Guerrillas and Linkin Park. G.U.N. audiences tend to be as diverse as his musical inspirations. Hip Hop Culture influences range from Eminem, Biggie Smalls, Lil Wayne, all the way to Meek Mill during his battle rap era.
Through this exposure to quality music, G.U.N decided to embrace “Rap” as a serious career path in his early twenties. Using his lyrics as a means to touch people, he expresses his goal to make songs that people can relate to. Recognized as one of an elite of the Dallas sound, G.U.N has built respect among the new era of young rap stars. G.U.N recently tapped into those relationships and has released the Johnny Cage remix featuring Jxmmi (Rae Sremmurd). The original version topping over 160k SoundCloud listens with only word of mouth. He has worked with some of the best in the hip-hop industry such as Rae Sremmurd, OG Maco, Lil Ronny MothaF- just to name a few. Along with his newly-launched record label – ‘Geeked Up Music’, G.U.N is bound to make a statement in this overly-saturated industry.
There will always be room for innovative artists like G.U.N. keeping the hip-hop game alive. So make sure you’re on the radar – when this geeked up music is presented to the world.
