Born Garland Wright II (a.k.a GT Soldier) who grew up in Hempstead, Long Island, New York was taught some tough, priceless survival tactics. One way of survival was to sing about "how you feel". Since GT was a child, he was making hot beats on his Mom's kitchen floor, singing any lyrics that came to his mind (mostly God songs).Growing up, he has always created music to deal with issues he faced and today he is inspiring the world with his God gifted talents.
He is well known around areas in PA, NJ and NY, and many respect his talents and stage presence, even the ones who didn't at first like Hip Hop or Rap. They have been inspired by his music which tells a message which touches their lives in different ways. His music is taking spirits to new heights using the knowledge he's learned in Digital Audio classes at LCCC. When he wasn't doing homework, he was making musical beats or trying something new in his studio.
GT is a very Talented Artist, Producer, Songwriter, Engineer, and emerging Hip Hop, Rap Mogul. He is very computer swavy and stays up to date with the latest technology and software. This helps him create his own meaningful sounds making him very unique compared to other musicians.
Aware of all of his pain and problems while growing up, GT started his own music career to teach others about the system, God, and bad company. He presently creates music that speaks to this generation.
He has performed at Crash Mansion in NY , International Music Festival in Vegas, Drop On Top Ent. Events, F.L.O Empire radio events and several other venues. His flow is tight and his music will elevate you to new heights. GT is taking music to a whole new level in 2016.
After deleting over 250,000 plays on youtube in 2015, he's started brand new for 2016. Reason, music needs to change because of all of the influences, violence, divisions, degrading activities and habits that are affecting us all. He decided it was time to help others through music in a Fresh and Clean way by starting his career over. GT believes it's time to show the world what GT Soldier can really do with his amazing talents to birth music for change. With years of experience under his belt, you won't find a more qualified individual to create platinum records with that will be around for years to come but GT.
I started off listening to tupac broken wings and wondered how he was rapping so i studied his bars and figured out what a verse and hook was. I always rapped about how i felt no matter what the situation was. After I was falsely charged, falsely trialed, and falsely convicted, and falsely sentenced then i knew there was a feeling inside of me that I never felt before. It was extreme anger that was felt but I used it in a positive way by being creative with my word play. The justice system thought my life was a joke so i dress up as a clown for everybody that think i'm one.
Yes GT Soldier plays live . Everywhere that he can. Loves to move the crowd and motivate the spirit.
