What’s good music lovers? Today, we’ve got a special guest with us, Da Gutta Soul. This artist is all about perseverance and turning a negative situation into a positive one. His background is unique and inspiring, as he began his music career while serving a 10-year sentence in prison for assault and attempted murder. During his sentence, he formed a brotherhood called Paid Killa Entertainment, which helped him develop his craft. Since his release in 2014, he has been pursuing music with the same people he started with.
Da Gutta Soul is from Barstow, California, and he got serious about music around 2007, while still in prison. The most challenging thing he’s overcome in life was losing both his parents at a young age. Despite this, he has managed to maintain a positive outlook on life and stay focused on his music career. He draws inspiration from his team, the Killaz RiskTakerZ, Lil Wayne, and Jay-Z.
Da Gutta Soul’s purpose for pursuing music is to inspire others to believe that they can make it, no matter where they come from. He wants his listeners to know that embracing your struggles and making the best of life is what life is all about. His greatest achievement as a musician has been getting on a song with the same brothers he was in prison with.
His music process involves him writing and recording at his home studio, and then re-recording in a big studio with his current collaborator, Sav Did It. His writing process is simple: he puts a beat on, feels the vibe, flips through one of his many old prison books, and catches a flow to the beat.
Da Gutta Soul has a clean sound that doesn’t feature any cursing or use of the N-word. He’s all about family and spends his days taking care of his kids and wife, promoting his CDs, working out, reading, and making music. He has some exciting projects in the pipeline, including a deluxe edition of Less is More with Tiny Gun and a project with Devious. We can’t wait to see what’s next for Da Gutta Soul and are excited to hear his music inspire others to believe that anything is possible.
