I go by the name of OG Geno, I'm a songwriter, rap artist and producer and promoter of my own brand of music which I call G. Style.
OG Geno was born and raised in Chicago Illinois until he was 3 months away from his 17th birthday.
His mother then moved to Flint Michigan, which is where he still lives today.
He first got into rappin & songwriting when he was about 13 years old, and that's when he found out that he had a love and a talent to do both of them really well.
His friends and family had no idea that he could rap or write songs because he never shared it with anyone for a long time.
But when he did, all the people that heard him were impressed that he could do it, and do it well.
Although he started rappin and writing songs at age 13, he didn't get into making beats until age 29.
Basically because he never had access to a real studio, So he bought himself a keyboard and the process was then set into motion.
OG Geno says, that in his young teenage years and in his young 20's, he didn't have his own studio, he didn't know anybody that had a studio, and he didn't know anybody that knew anybody that had a studio. So out of the love of the music and sheer neccessity he ended up putting together his own home made studio in the basement of his house.
OG Geno has music in his blood.
His father Creadel "Red" Jones, was an original member of the singing group known as The Chi-Lites.
His mother and father got a divorce when he was about 4 years old, and he hasn't seen his father since then, but he still carries the blood of an legendary artist in his body.
When he went looking for his father in 2005, he found out that his father had died in 1994, and later that year he went on to write a song that he dedicated to his father called "Red Son", which can be heard on his myspace page. www.myspace.com/oggeno
OG Geno is now a self taught songwriter, rap artist, producer and promoter of his own brand of music, which he calls G. Style Records.
He is always quick to point out that, the "G" in G. Style stands for Geno.
OG Geno has now begun to receive compliments and support for his music from people all over the world, since he first started putting his music on the internet in 2005.
He is truly a trend setter and a go getter that's always looking for a new challenge to take on.
With or without a record deal, OG Geno is bound to attract the attention of a lot of people with his original beats, lyrics and rappin skills.

I just want it to be known that my music is not an attempt to poison the minds of my listeners, it's just my way of saying what I think and feel, and it's just one of the styles of music that I like. It's not much different from the style of movies I like- Gangsta- Drama- and Action. Just thought I'd let y'all know that, if anyone cares to know. You might be a person that has an ant farm in a fish aquarium in your bedroom, & to me, I'm like, why in the hell would I want a bunch of ants, in a fish aquarium, in my bedroom? But, I'm like, "WHATEVER".. you be you, and let me be me... G. Style!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
