Since performing at Atlantic City’s 2019 Springfest concert, New Jersey rapper Gatti800 has kept his foot on the gas. From his viral “Act Out” single featuring DaBaby to his homage to Black love in the official “Lover & Bestfriend” music video, Gatti800 has built a solid fan base leading up to his new project, G-Baby. It’s clear that the G-Baby title and cover art draw inspiration from the 2001 film Hardball, but the music itself finds Gatti800 embodying the charisma and unyielding resilience of the beloved movie character.
“G-Baby started off as just a nickname people associated with me after seeing me wear baseball jerseys all Summer. I decided to turn it into a project providing a variety of vibes, uplifting people through these tough times..,” Gatti800 shares with us.
The self-proclaimed “Hood Hero” is just that on this body of work — swooping in with relatable, feel-good anthems like “Row Row,” “W.Y.W,” and his flip of Ja Rule’s “Always on Time,” titling his version “Baby.”
I sampled some popular Hip-Hop classics and brought back some throwback lines which you will catch on to throughout the album,” Gatti800 comments.
Guest features include Chanel Michelle, Shad, Dolla,Nyah, HMan, and Marboss, while notable production credit goes out to MarsBeatz and CorMill, the latter of which produced five tracks on the project. Fans can expect new visuals off the project in the upcoming weeks, but in the meantime, revisit the “Lover & Bestfriend” music video here, and stream Gatti800’s G-Baby below!

New Jersey-bred, Harrisburg, PA based recording artist, Genre, starts the new year off right with the official music video for his catchy, “Danny the Devil” single. Directed by Tanner Hench, the visual finds Genre and fellow Harrisburg artist Yung Faucet enjoying a wild party, filled with girls and alcohol, as they nonchalantly trade melodic rhymes about how they have grown accustomed to the rapper lifestyle.“This song is about walking the line of uncertainty and no longer being able to do so after attaining a certain level of success. Danny symbolizes uncertainty and in the music video she is represented through women and alcohol,” Genre shares with us. This video features some familiar cameos that, if you are familiar with the Harrisburg scene, you will recognize immediately. The chemistry between videographer and musical artists here is strong, which can be best seen in how well the fast-paced scenes are able to portray the energy of the song.
