Hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota, Major G is a young rapper with a unique approach and ambitious attitude, on a quest to leave his mark upon the local hip hop scene and beyond.
Hip Hop is a very special genre that offers a really wide creative perspective: From sampling old recordings to crafting analog drum machine beat patterns, there is truly no limit and there are no rules restraining what you can come up with. An artist with a vision can create great things under the hip hop umbrella, but the sad reality is that the majority of performers, MCs and producers are only trying to “milk the cow” while there’s still something left, riding the latest trends and acting more like copycats than like artists with their own mindset.
This is definitely not the case of Major G, The General, who set out to stand as a leader among the scene, taking his music seriously and performing with a compelling passion. Major G keeps playing live and promoting his music: he as appeared alongside artists such as Snoop Lion, Mac Miller at Soundset music Festival 2013 and Cam-ron at First Avenue just to name a few.
Major G has been a fan of hip hop for a really long time, beginning to excel at rapping as early as during the 4th grade, stepping his game up to the next level ever since. Not only a talented rapper, but also a self-taught producer, Major G creates his own music with the help of software workstations such as FL Studio (Fruity Loops). The fact that this artist also produces his own tracks his great, because it gives him complete creative control over his material and releases. Major G is one of those few rappers who refuse to get stuck in a box, delivering eclectic tracks topped by his signature sharp lyrical flow.
Major G is currently a part of a collective of artists and producers named The Mogolz (aka MGZ), a team that stands out from the crowd, cooperating on their productions to help each single member to achieve the maximum potential. Other members of the crew are: Von Von, Nick Travae, Colomon C and Trublu. His productions are always high quality, striving to connect with the listeners at a deeper level, letting the music flow free from categorizations. When asked about his audience, Major G replies: “my fans are independent thinkers, free flowing, care free individuals who value life experiences in their own terms”.
“What makes me different from everyone else is that I'm not creating the sound of today I'm creating the sound of the future” – Major G.
