Succeeding in the music industry is difficult, let alone when one tackles the business as an independent artist. The road was never easy for self-made artist Geez Da Gawd. Nevertheless, he still made a name for himself as one of today’s most promising rappers.
Born in Baltimore and raised in Detroit, Geez Da Gawd has seen both communities’ music landscape. He combines them with the latest trends in the country and across the globe. Geez Da Gawd began rapping in the streets and was fueled by the desire to make others listen to his own music. His first project was remaking Young Thug’s track Power, which ended up being streamed on Sirius XM.
The 28-year-old rapper, songwriter, and sound engineer began creating music five years ago. Because of his wit and talent, his music was featured on 92Q Jams Baltimore and 93.9 WKYS DC, two major radio stations.
But that was merely the beginning of the rapper’s amazing journey. In 2018, Geez Da Gawd’s music reached new heights when his hit single called “Little Brother” gained attention. The track was produced by Gtrak, a producer on the eastside of Detroit.
Today, Geez Da Gawd manages his brand, Prominence Recording Studio, under Prominence Records LLC, in Maryland. The company was built so that the artist could produce with his own label, which eventually grew into a studio. Owning a studio gave him more freedom and also allowed him to save funds. Other engineers would also fail to realize his vision, so he decided to mix his own tracks. Prominence Records has signed several artists, and the music talent Yahboy Soda will be the first to launch with the company’s label.
Aside from being an entrepreneur, the artist is also a social media personality with over 200,000 combined YouTube views. The rapper prides himself on being self-engineered. He also markets his brand. Geez Da Gawd is genuinely a self-made artist in his own right.

He owes his success to staying true to his narrative. “Originality and authenticity goes a long way, and I’ve always had my own way of doing things,” said the artist. Every day, he is motivated to produce something different and bring fresh tracks to music lovers.
Asked why he loves being an artist, Geez Da Gawd said that music’s freedom drives him to be successful. He values the fact that he can create music at his own pace as an independent artist. “But honestly the most rewarding thing is when people realize how hard you’ve worked to create the art.
