Gedword originally started out making music in 2004 with The 801 Family here in Salt lakeCity, Utah. But was always very good writing poems even as a youth. Gedword originally went by the rap name Addikt while with 801 Family, and part of V.A. Although Gedword has now branched out into his own record label in 2013. ( Lake Reppin Records) but to this day represents and will always represent the Fam and Verbal Assassins (V.A.) till the death.. Along with SEM,(Self Expression Music) and FSR (Frozen Solid Records). Gedword is loyal to his music, family, and music family. And also very determined to put SLC on the map. In the last year he's dropped this latest solo mixtape first project from his self founded HipHop label L.R.R. (Lake Reppin Records) He's released many group albums, and since releasing his latest project B.O.T.E. Mixtape, he's actively striving to grow and is currently working on his first LP.. Look for Gedword to explode onto the scene, especially in Utah. But listen to a few tracks from his mixtape, and see why the sky is the limit for this diverse, dynamic MC to attract outside interest from around the world. With over 10 years experience perfecting his craft, Gedword isn't your typical everyday kid off the street that puts rhymes together. He's determined to be 100% real and unique with everything he puts his name on! His devotion to "real talk" HipHop and speaking only about his everyday life situations and who he is, and what he's been through in life. Instead of your prototypical "MC's that will say anything on a track as long as it rhymes and puts off a not so "real" style.. Really makes him a special artist! He writes about the struggles and blessings he's experienced in his life ONLY! And I guarantee if he was offered a big time contract to change his real life approach to his music, it'd be turned down without a second thought.. Music is his passion, his life, and his originality and speaking the truth in his music is why he's in love with being an artist and his talent can and should pay dividends to the MC.. But if not... Simply put by Gedword, he will be comfortable doing what he loves and staying true to his beliefs that true artistry is being REAL!
