Melee in Bucktown, spotlight on: Gatz-n-Goods

Melee in Bucktown * July 22, 2011 at Debonair * Free Show

Spotlight on: Gatz-n-Goods

“That’s what I live for. That’s why I do it. I told Mike I’ll do this show for free. I want people to be like, ‘Yo, that dude can rhyme. That dude’s dope. I’ll fucks with him.’ That’s it. It’d be great to make money, but I live for being on stage and being appreciated. I just want people to know that I’m dope and that I’m good at rhyming. So that somebody will be like, ‘Yo, when Gatz said this and that…’ I want to be an inspiration. I’m not saying a role model – I’m just saying I would love to be an inspiration to the next generation of hip-hoppers and MCs. I’m not saying they should do everything that I did, but maybe I’ll inspire them to write one of their best lines. That’s what’s up for me.”

“I don’t plan any of that. It’s all different and improv – every time, it’s alive. I love to perform. I love to be on stage and sing and feel people. I use myself as an audience, and I vibe and groove with it. I’m from jazz and soul and blues and stuff like that. It takes its own direction. It takes the lead. It’s my man, the music.”

One more day until the best show the Chi has to offer. Now it’s time to meet the Melee’s special guests, starting with Gatz-n-Goods. What? You wanted to start with E-Train? I’m sorry bout that. Whammy.
