The 21-year-old rapper/producer recently became the newest member of fellow Gary, IN rapper Freddie Gibbs Str8 Slammin recording label and plans to make his Str8 Slammin debut this April with new project “Weekend in Los Vegas.“
Once an aspiring video game designer, the Gary, Indiana native who also still currently attends Indiana University Northwest, has been buzzing on the hip-hop scene since 2009 after a series of well received mixtapes, most notably “Scott Bailey vs. The World” and “The Michael G. Scott EP.”
Together, both mixtapes amassed over 10,000 downloads with popular singles “Folded” and “Good Morning” totaling over 40,000 YouTube views. Scott has also opened for the likes of Big Sean, Wiz Khalifa, Willie The Kid, Chip The Ripper, Travis Porter, XV and has worked with Naldege of Kidz in the Hall, GLC and Boldy James.
“G-Scott’s word play is what caught my attention. He’s very articulate and has very good content. I think he’s definitely somebody to look out for in 2012,” says Freddie Gibbs.
