Gkoley is a rap artist from New Orleans, Louisiana.

 Inspired by hip-hop artist such as Wayne, Eminem, Nas, Tupac and Biggie, the rapper’s music is lyrical and up tempo, with a catchy flow made recognizable by his New Orleans twang.

 Gkoley first began rapping for fun around age 9 after while being the son of a record business executive Greg Money he continued growing and learning more about the art and became more of a writer and performer at age 13 Gkoley began recording and doing shows around the New Orleans areas. Gkoley began to take his musical talents to the next level after spending time away.

 Growing up in an impoverished and crime-filled neighborhoods, the artist witnessed several distressing events from a young age including loss of good friends and even family. This tuff upbringing and confrontation with life’s struggles early on pushes Gkoley to make it out and do better.   These themes of strive and motivation are reflected in his lyrics, which he views as a space for self expression.

 “Sometimes I talk about the things I have seen in my youth and how it has still affected me years later,” says the artist, describing his song writing process. “Mostly I create based on energy, Whatever I am feeling, however the people around me or whatever kind of vibe is in the air, I use that to write the song.”   

 Motivation by self-expression, and to honor his Mother, Daddy and loyal friends through his craft, Gkoley is 100% focused on putting out new music in 2020.
