G’sta is a rapper/producer from New Orleans, LA. He’s gained respect through the quality projects that he’s released since the 90’s, starting with “Misery” and “World of Syn” which developed a cult following internationally, then with “We Workin'”, the full length album with Layzie Bone of Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, then with a host of projects throughout the 2000’s including his “Classic Status” mixtape series, and now with his “Don’t Shoot The Messenger” project, which is produced entirely by DJ Blaknificent.
DJ Blaknificent is a DJ/producer from New Orleans, LA. He helped lay the foundation for what would become the New Orleans Hip-Hop scene, as well as the New Orleans Bounce music scene. From coming up as part of the legendary New Orleans group Psycho Ward, to producing and working with such notable artists as Mia X and Kane & Abel, to now producing with G’sta and providing the sonic landscape for the “Don’t Shoot The Messenger” project, ‘Nif continues to put in work, providing a classical Hip-Hop sound that is a refreshing departure from the current musical trends.
On this episode, we start talking with DJ Blaknificent as he gives us some New Orleans music history. Once G’Sta gets on the line, we get into their musical history, their lives in general, and of course “Don’t Shoot The Messenger,” which you need to listen to right now because it is dope! We really had fun kicking it with these guys, and this episode is definitely a must listen.
