Gilles (pronounced “Jills”) ,has released his latest contribution to the music scene, “Super.” The full-length project can now be purchased on iTunes.
Brooklyn-born, Atlanta-raised rapper Gilles doesn’t have the stereotypical hip-hop backstory. There is no hardscrabble history, no illegal hustle here. In fact, the rhymer from ATL’s Buckhead neighborhood was an attorney before he decided to take his musical career to the next level. Ready to break away from the corporate America grind, Gilles leverages his career to fuel and finance his passion of pursuing his music career. Amid the “turn up,” Gilles’ lyrics provide a smooth change of pace that is both gritty and artfully crafted. A self-proclaimed lover of the ladies, this Howard University graduate, seeks to represent his generation, a generation of individuals seeking something more, something to go hard for. His combination of Southern lyricism, his atypical tastes and history make for an interesting mix of uniqueness.
“If you listen closely, you’ll realize ‘all are just as big a part of this project as I am. I could never have done this without you. For that, I’m eternally grateful. ” -Gilles
