Raised by a single mother, Dominican born Gus Gomez (aka Gustavo Gomez or G-Vito) fell
victim to the drugs and violence
surrounding him on the streets of Washington Heights, NY.
His desire to get off the streets led him to develop his musical talents and pursue
his dream as a professional wrestler.
In 2002, Gomez traveled south to Miami to pursue a wrestling career. Gomez,
under the name “Gus Quatro”, had minor success in the independent wrestling circuit
but after only a few short years suffered a back injury that ended his wrestling career.
While in Miami, Gomez met an underground hip hop artist named Richie with
whom he formed a span-glish duo. Gomez changed his name to “G-Vito”
after mob boss Vito Genovese and the duo gained
positive exposure on the Miami music scene.
In 2003, Gomez moved to Maryland to be closer to his mother and his New York roots.
While in Maryland, Gomez met rapper Uno and together they formed the group “Guerilla”.
In the summer of 2005, Gomez, Uno, and a local label Verse4Verse,
recorded hip hop / reggaeton compilation albums.
In 2006, Gomez branched out on his own to pursue his own label
“Guerilla Entertainment” and changed his stage name to his given name.
Under his own label, Gomez recorded more than 20 songs.
In 2007, he self-released the material as “Traficando”,
a compilation of songs performed with other artists
including Ariel GQ and Uno. Gomez’s popularity
skyrocketed as he recorded more and more songs.
He released “El Bacano” and “El Producto” which include his interpretations
on reggaeton beats from other artists.
In August 2009, Gomez released “El Narco: Bloody Sunday”.
The album was produced by Gomez himself and distributed
under his own label Guerilla Entertainment.
In 2010, Gomez released of 2nd studio album “Product of February”.
Now in 2011, Gomez is looking forward to the release of his latest album
“The Long Road LP”.
