If you are looking for ransom I can tell you I don't have money, but what I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you.
Today Breadhouse Rekords rapper Gerb the Point Guard preps his new album Out On Bond with a new visual for fans despite remaining on house arrest. Supported by his new single “New 2 Me,” the Florida bred rapper is out on bond while he continues to fight a legal case within the Florida legal system.
“It’s just a record about how gettin money and doin thangs ain’t really New 2 Me just like the song says, I kinda been doin that just under the radar and really ain’t had the chance to make it too big. But, the area I’m from, everybody know me, lot of big time artists know me, it’s just under the radar for now” Gerb the Point Guard said.
Hoping to give Hip-Hop and Rap fans an update on his case and insights into his situation Gerb has put all his effort into his music and recording. He’s sober, he’s on house arrest and he’s focused on finding a way to persevere, no matter if it’s the streets or the Coronavirus in his way.
“I basically want to give everyone the inside on what I got going on with my situation, I was arrested about 6 months ago on some charges and I was finally able to get a bond on my case. I got out so I got a little window and I’m not sure how the situation is going to work out so, I’m just putting all my work and effort into my music in my free time right now and basically I want to get the word out about what I got going on and what I had going on before I got into situation.”
Now pushing his movement through his own record label called, Breadhouse Rekords, Gerb the Point Guard has also been working on developing younger talent on his label.
“Breadhouse Rekords is a kind of a switch over from the FinesseGang thing and before I ran into my situation I was helping push a bunch of young artist come up. I’m just pushing my new stuff now ever since I was released and I’m just recording and working from home like everyone else during this time” Gerb the Point Guard said.
Never to be discouraged by a situation, Gerb says that he will continue to release music and visuals over the next few months.
“The case may drag a few years with pre-trial cases and I’m on ankle monitor so I can’t really go too many places or do too many things right now, but I’m dropping music and visuals all through Spring to keep the fans happy.”
Recently Mississippi rapper Trap Main released the video for his new song, “First Day Out.” The song is his first release after being incarcerated for over two years for a crime he fought and took to trial. Trap Main was held against his will but eventually appealed a 30 year sentence and was released. Through it all Trap Main was supported in prison by a “Free Trap” campaign that continued to gain steam until his release recently.
Now Trap Main is coming back with a vengeance and his new single “First Day Out,” a tribute to his fans that continued to support him while he was locked up. Releasing two projects while in jail titled, Born in the Trap and Free Trap, the buzz has continued since his release to unanticipated levels.
“The Free Trap campaign was crazy, like they supported me from time I went to jail to still now. It’s love, the streets fuck with me, I really got the streets. I was a young nigga when I started rapping at like 21 and got locked up when I was 25, so I kind of missed two years of my life. But now I’m 27 and I’m just on the come up to make up for lost time,” Trap Main said.
In addition to his support in the streets, Trap Main has earned support on local Jackson, Mississippi radio stations WJMI, 99.7 Jams and WRBJ 97.7, The Beat of the Capital.
“First Day Out is for the fans who supported me while I was locked up. I was locked up 2 years, I was facing 30 years and came back on an appeal. Nigga stayed solid – stuck to da G Code. I just want to keep going and taking it to the highest level I can take it. Staying safe is big because you know rappers are targets. But from there, just take care of my family. Keep some loyal ones around and try to elevate.”
Heavily influenced by losing his cousin and a close collaborator Lil Lonnie, Trap Main is inspired daily by having lost a host of loved ones that were around him in his early 20’s. There’s no question Trap Main feels blessed to be alive and he’s focused on a greater purpose – his music.
“I got shot two times in the arm when I was 20 years old – i been through the worst of the worst , I could have been dead. My cousin died at 22, I got shot at 20, so I’m just blessed to be alive,” Trap Main explained. “I was locked up when my partner Lil Lonnie died that was a major loss to a lot of people and it still don’t feel real.”
