Dj Wicked G grew up in Miami, FL. He served proudly in the US Army and music has been his passion since he was a kid. He loves sounds, beats, and experimenting with different genres of music, but more specifically Hip-Hop, Rap, Trap, Dance, and etc.
Dj Wicked G, is principally what has become one of modern music’s most important figures. These are the guys who can make or break, rap and hip hop artists. They deliver those all-important backdrops on which rap artists lay down fiery rhymes and flows. Often referred to as Producers, they are more essentially beatmakers, without whom ninety percent of rappers wouldn’t even exist!
We recently checked out Dj Wicked G’s track, “The Feeling of Power” and straight off the cuff he shows promise as a beatmaker, and it’s exciting to see what he’ll accomplish as his talents refine with time. In fact we quickly moved over to his Soundcloud to checkout his catalog, and it seems that Dj Wicked G has hit the ground running, churning out a series of intriguing beats.
At the heart of “The Feeling of Power” Dj Wicked G showcases both his wide-roaming ear for sounds and his knack for clever manipulation of off-beat source material. He also has the ability to push through cacophonous grit into more melodic territory, as is evident on some of his other tracks.
Ultimately its Dj Wicked G’s army of spindly synth and vocal hooks, cavernous basslines, fast-paced 808 type drums and surefire handclaps that is poised to continue its exploration of Gangsta rap. In fact, his hook line is, “Keeping it Gangsta”!
But tracks like “Acid Tunnel” and “The Rise of Me”, also show that Dj Wicked G is building an inimitable body of work that includes production characterized by ephemeral tracks, full of moody ambience that run diametrically opposed to nearly everything on the radio. Stuff with which to turn mainstream on its ear!
All through his catalog Dj Wicked G’s style is very focused on the almost understated sound he manages to achieve. His beats are spacious and unobtrusive, leaving plenty of room for rappers to spit their teeth into. There are some kicking beats here and if you are interested in the alternative Hip-Hop that is certainly the future of this genre, then make sure that you get Dj Wicked G at all costs.
Dj Wicked G’s beats will take you from happy to melodramatic and bittersweet. As I’ve mentioned before hip hop producers / beatmakers are the most important, and the most underrated pieces in the construction of hip hop music. While rappers are showcased on album covers, creatives like Dj Wicked G, quietly work in the shadows towards the evolution of Rap and Hip hop.
