If you’re a fan of 90’s rap or the Gogo, a trendy Washington DC signature genre from the 60’s and ’70s, the new drop from Gill $tackz is for you. The young artist mixes those genres in his debut single “Ballin”. The flawless track is the fearless display of the rapper’s greatness, one he undoubtedly believes in. For a debut single, “Ballin” is assertive and infectious but at the same time true to its creator.
Gill $tackz took his musical career inspiration and love for hip-hop from Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise”. Another significant influence for the independent artist were other legends such as Bob Marley, Nas, Tupac, Biggie Smalls, Jay-Z, Bone Thugs n Harmony, Three six Mafia, and Lil Wayne that crafted his approach to music.
The artist brings his journey to his music. He is no stranger to the harshness of the world and struggles. Gill has had his fair share of hard times, and it is reflected in his music. He learned to believe in himself and not let others’ opinions determine who he is or if he has what it takes to succeed. As he makes it clear in “Ballin,” he knows he is good, even great.
The track is laced with fire production and swag in the lyrics from the beginning to the end, and Gill proudly owns every part of it.
