ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Gwalla was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, a city with a very great history with many historical events like Mardi Gras, second line brass bands joined with Indian tribes parading through the streets on the regualr. By the age of nine, he began to gravitate towards the music industry being inspired by hip hop groups and artist such as Run DMC, Getto Boys, Too Short, and Tupac Shakur being played by the djs at the block parties in the projects. He grew up in the seventh ward St. Bernard project that was one of the most crime infested neighborhoods in the area. As he grew up, he started to learn a lot about the streets and involved himself in many situations with other children who were on the wrong path in life leading to destruction. At the age of twelve, he moved to the ninth ward living in a single parent home feeling a void. To avoid the pain, he started to write music with dreams of becoming a successful artist in the entertainment business. His music was considered different to others because he didn’t copy styles from other artist who the people loved, so, they didn't support his dreams, but he never stop working on his craft and continued improving his music with a passion.
While living in the ninth ward, his life became more graphical living in the bricks. He had no brothers, therefore, he had to learn the way to survive in the neighborhood all alone. By the age of sixteen, he started selling drugs as the murder rate in New Orleans kept rising. He continued to did deeper in the drug ring and by the age of seventeen he was arrested for drug trafficking. Upon his release he realized how much his life changed. He wanted to find his way out the streets, but it seemed as if the only way out was his music.
By the age of twenty-three, he started his own label and produced his first mixtape titled “Bombing on the Game.” The title was inspired by no one recognized how talented he appeared to himself. Without hesitation he put all his money behind the project and pushed it as he sold and gave away free disc if people didn’t have money to buy it. It reached a point where the people started to certify his music, but he was still engraved in the streets in the murder capital of the United States. In 2005, New Orleans was hit by a category 5 storm name “Hurricane Katrina” and the ninth ward was the hardest hit location in the country. He watched the winds blow 150mph before his eyes as dead bodies floated by. There he almost lost his life twice swimming through waters that ranged from eight to twenty-one feet floods.
In 2010, Gwalla received a management deal to help his career take off. When he was put into position to work harder and get his music to be released to the industry he was set up by some people in 2014 to be murdered because of their envy of his momentum in the music business. He shot his first video to be released, but before it was, he was shot in is head at point blank range in broad daylight. People were marveled that he survived. It also peaked their interest when his image changed due to the fact he started to wear and eye patch. Once he recovered, his level evolved and he had more access to network nationwide artist such as 2 Chainz, OG Maco, Young Greatness, Lil Scrappy, Rick Ross, Migos, Quavo, Take Off, Offset, Juvenile, and more. He began to build his brand and became more recognized as a well-known upcoming artist in the industry.
