Virtue a.k.a Skynny G, is an aspiring hip hop artist hailing from Salt Lake City, Utah, now transplanted in Oregon. He has spent the past 16 years writing, producing, and performing his music with many of his fellow local artists. As a result he has released a few albums such as, Skynny G- Budlife Fo Life LP(2000), Skynny G- Nursery Highz EP(2001), Virtue- On A Mission EP(2006), and Virtue- The Reala LP(2009). Currently, Virtue is working on his latest release, The Realionaire (The Reala pt. 2) LP which we plan to release summer of 2014. His live performances have placed him in almost every bar and/or club in downtown Salt Lake City and at bigger venues, such as Club Vegas,The Avalon Theatre, Murray Theatre, The Complex, The Great Saltair, and numerous other events in California, Oregon and Montana, opening for major artists such as, Tech N9ne, Public Enemy, Devin The Dude, Andre Nickatina, Jedi Mind Tricks, Sean Price, Grayskul, Ill Bill and Mickey Avalon.
Through the years Virtue has gained quite a name and reputation for himself. He is well known for his quick witted “rhyme schemes”, philosophical "real" lyrics, in-depth attention to detail when writing about his life experiences, hard work, dedication, and determination for success for himself and everyone else. Besides the music, Virtue is also a well known and aggressive promoter. This meshes very well with being an artist and is a big contribution to his “local fame”.
