About Yo Gotti
Yo Gotti emerged from hip-hop's dirty underbelly in the late 90's via Memphis. Gotti's inspiration of both Southern and non-Southern rappers is always evident. Sprinkles of N.W.A., Cash Money and Lil' Wayne, and the late Tupac flavor his verses, however, Gotti’s voice is his alone. Raised in the infamous, crime-ridden Ridge Crest housing projects, Gotti label's his music "Reality Music" for a reason.
However rapping about crime and street life is not his main focus. He has always been a well-rounded artist. Gotti began building his catalog in the early 2000s. His first album, From da Dope Game 2 da Rap Game, in 2000; 2001's Self Explanatory and 2002's Block Burnin', Vol. 1. Gotti signed with TVT and recorded Life, in 2003. TVT released "Dirty South Soldiers" (a duet with Atlanta crunk star Lil' Jon) as Life's first single. After his track "Full Time" landed Gotti a feature in the film Hustle & Flow, he released Back 2 da Basics in 2006.
