This past weekend was one to remember in Atlanta especially for rising artist Gilles who graced the stage at Studio No. 7 to a crowd of trendsetters and innovators. The evening was hosted by New York City’s Power 105’s Breakfast Club co-host Angela Yee.
With the mic in hand Gilles gave the crowd his all for his #SuperAlbumRelease that had heads bopping back in forth to the beat. As a new artist he’s been grinding to make things happen, but his story isn’t like most rapper’s persona. To the contrary of most he comes from a solid foundation with music pumping through his veins.
Brooklyn-born, Atlanta-raised rapper Gilles doesn’t have the stereotypical hip-hop backstory. There is no hardscrabble history, no illegal hustle here. In fact, the rhymer from ATL’s Buckhead neighborhood was an attorney before he decided to take his musical career to the next level. Ready to break away from the corporate America grind, Gilles leverages his career to fuel and finance his passion of pursuing his music career. Amid the “turn up,” Gilles’ lyrics provide a smooth change of pace that is both gritty and artfully crafted. A self-proclaimed lover of the ladies, this Howard University graduate, seeks to represent his generation, a generation of individuals seeking something more, something to go hard for. His combination of Southern lyricism, his atypical tastes and history make for an interesting mix of relatability and uniqueness.
