Independent and upcoming artist Babajide Bamiduro, aka Geez Da Gawd, is rising up the hip-hop ranks. With a unique sound unlike any other, he’s bringing something new into the scene, and hip-hop fans from all over are starting to take notice.
Geez Da Gawd is a rapper, songwriter, and engineer from Park Heights in Westside Baltimore. He grew up in Detroit most of his life, spending most of his childhood on Seven Mile in the West part of the town. His music started to pick up in 2018 when he released his single “Little Brother.” Eastside Detroit-based producer Gtrak produced the track.
The musician’s music has appeared and aired on 92Q Jams Baltimore and 93.9 WKYS DC. Geez Da Gawd also runs Prominence Recording Studio in Maryland, a venture he started to publish his own music. Later on Prominence would grow into a full studio. “Engineers wouldn’t mix my music to my liking, so I began to mix my own in 2016,” shares the artist. “I enjoy the comfort of my own space and saving thousands of dollars. Things kinda took off, with other artists wanting to get services from my label.”
In the near future, Prominence Studio will be shifting into an all inclusive record company. The music professional now has a few artists lined up for signing within the next couple months. Yahboy Soda, the artist who pushed Babajide to make the business official, will be one of the company’s first artists.
But the true passion of artist Geez Da Gawd is performing and writing original music. He takes after the styles and sounds of other well-known artists like Future, Sada Baby, G Herbo, Rio da Yung OG, Peezy, Babyface Ray, and Icewear Vezzo, to name a few. At his core, the artist believes that his music begins with an appreciation of other people’s work. Through this, he can grow skill-wise and move further in his music career.
On the social platform YouTube, Babajide has seen the most success in terms of digital presence. His music videos have cumulatively collected over two hundred thousand views on the video streaming platform. Geez Da Gawd is self-made in every single way. He writes his own music and has a heavy hand on his recording and music video work. Most of his creative masterpieces come from his vision and direction.
“To break through and get recognition is the greatest hurdle. An artist needs to elevate above the noise to really stand out,” shares Geez Da Gawd. “I realized that I have a responsibility to carry people through their moments.” The artist knows what it means to work hard. While extremely passionate, he never lets down his guard, always ready to overwork anyone. He acknowledges that everything he wants won’t just fall into his lap. Hence, he never stops to think about what the world owes him, but instead goes and gets it himself.
Consequently, Geez Da Gawd has grown a massive fan base for an independent artist. He receives messages from fans everywhere, expressing how much they appreciate his music and how his positive and uplifting messages have brought them through tough times. The artist finds inspiration in knowing that his work is making an impact in the lives of others.
And as he slowly increases his fanbase, he never rushes anything. Geez Da Gawd is taking his precious time. His focus has solely been on creating good quality music that hip-hop fans all around would love. He believes that there is no shortcut to greatness and maintains his value for hard work, not forgetting to enjoy the journey. He looks forward to creating more music that people will enjoy and collaborating with other artists.
