Da Gutta Soul, hailing from Barstow, California, began his music career in 2004 but it wasn’t until serving a 10-year prison sentence for assault and attempted murder that he began to take it seriously. During this time, he formed a brotherhood called Paid Killa Entertainment, which helped develop his skills as a rapper.
Drawing inspiration from his team, the Killaz RiskTakerZ, Lil Wayne, and Jay-Z, Da Gutta Soul’s music is all about turning negative situations into positive ones. Despite losing both his parents at a young age, he has managed to maintain a positive outlook on life and channel his energy into his music. His purpose for pursuing music is to inspire others to believe that they can make it, no matter where they come from.
Da Gutta Soul’s music stands out in that it features a clean sound, devoid of cursing or the N-word. He writes and records his music at his home studio, then re-records in a bigger studio with his collaborator, Sav Did It. His writing process involves putting a beat on, feeling the vibe, flipping through one of his many old prison books, and catching a flow to the beat. As he continues to inspire others and make music, we can’t wait to see what the future holds for this talented artist.
