Art of Hustlin: PT. I
Guccione, born as Ralph D. Edwards, is originally from Fort Pierce, Florida. Guccione relocated to Decatur, Ga in 1991 with his family in pursuit of a career in the rap game. Having 10 years of experience in the industry, he knew he was destined for triumph. Writing all of his lyrics, partying, & *shi&*(! allowed Guccione to build upon his talents as a rap artist. It led him to the road of fame & fortune. His will power and desire performing at local Atlanta clubs and shows across the Southeast landed him his first deal. He released his single 'Right Now' off the upcoming smashing label Platinum World Projex in 2002 & acheived recognition and the #1 spot on Hot 107.9 (Atlanta's premier radio station). Dallas Austin inked a singled deal with PWPX & Guccione. It was going to be distributed through Capitol Records. Unfortunately, the label went through label exec changes. Roy Lott was appointed another position at EMI. Guccione was at a stand still. Nevertheless, that didn't stop his will & desire to succeed in the industry!!!!!!!!! Guccione's style is a hybrid of southern hip hop with a twist of northern exposure. That conveys the essence of authentic rap beats & rhymes... His inspirations are Sammie Davis Jr, Frank Sinatra, Ike Turner, Big Daddy Kane, Elvis Presley, OJ Simpson, Jay-Z, Eric B & Rakim, Slik Rick, Special Ed, & Mc Lyte...We are looking for greatness from this artist!!!!
