24-year-old rapper and producer G-Scott hails from the historical city that hasn’t birthed megastars since the Jackson family. Luckily, “Gary’s new hero” is here to change that. Working on his 4th full-length release "Another Weekend in Las Vegas" due out this summer, the young emcee is steadily working towards his big break.

Once an aspiring video game designer, Gerald “G-Scott” Bailey started making music at the age of 15 during his freshman year of high school. What started as a summer hobby quickly transformed into a passion and "G-Scott" the rapper/producer was born. Self-taught in Fruity Loops, Reason 3 and 4 and Adobe Audition, throughout high school he became known as the “go-to-guy” for production to the upcoming rappers. However, it wasn't until senior year that Scott began to take his lyrical ability seriously.

"G-Scott's word play is what caught my attention. He's very articulate, has very good content and is definitely somebody to look out for_." - Freddie Gibbs

After his first semester at Indiana University Northwest, G-Scott released his first project “The

Billionaire Block Boy.” The tape was met with warm reception on several blog sites and Scott has been buzzing on the hip-hop scene since. He followed up with "Scott Bailey vs. The World" and "The Michael G. Scott EP" and has opened for Big Sean, Wiz Khalifa, Willie The Kid, Chip The Ripper, Travis Porter, XV and worked with Naldege of Kidz in the Hall, GLC and Boldy James.

 

In 2012 he was signed to **Freddie Gibbs** imprint Str8 Slammin' and released his most notable project "Weekend in Las Vegas.' The project hit hard garnering attention from the likes of XXL, The Source, Red Mull Music, MTV, Fuse TV as well as notable A&R's and music executives. Though things did not quite work out on the label, Scott continued to do what he does best and released a series of full-length albums and EPs on his own - "1983" (LP), "Nostalgia: Flight 222" (EP) and "8-Bit Scott (EP). 

Staying true to who he is; just a regular guy who works, goes to school and has girlfriend issues,

Scott has amassed a loyal fan base with little to no mainstream attention. With his 4th full-length project and a tour in the works as well as some very influential eyes watching over his movement, G-Scott is expected to be a musical force coming out of Indiana bringing a refreshing and much needed sound to hip hop and music.

"My music is me; a mixture of conscious, real life satire and honest emotion over true production. I strive to be more than a rapper. I'm an artist painting a portrait of the world as I see it" - G-Scott
