You And Me: Guilla Drops New Music

I like how things feel in the Houston music scene right now. Last night I spoke to Lindsay from Football Etc. and she said she felt like people were making it out for local shows in better numbers lately; to which I somewhat agree. One of the artists you should make it out for is Guilla. Guilla got on my radar from his “Hip Hop Anonymous” shows over at Warehouse Live. These things are just a little intense, when you walk into a packed room, and there’s possibly the future of hip hop rapping right in front of you. His hustle is what caught my eye, but his music and rhyme skill is what kept my attention. Since catching him in various spots around town, including Houston’s Best Halloween Bash, he’s definitely been on my radar.
So when Jordan Brady, Dpat’s drummer asked me for a rapper who could draw and has swagger; naturally Guilla was the first name I dropped. Due to the high profile of Dpat with the Grammy nomination and all, Guilla pushed his upcoming EP, “Rap, Trap, & Drums” back to coincide with the show. The EP, which will be available on all digital outlets on December 11th, will also be available in a physical version at the Dpat show on December 13th. That physical version will feature a bonus track only available on that version of the EP. The bonus track in question, is “You And Me” featuring Mark Drew. On it, Guilla rhymes with his naturaly hustle while keeping your attention at its peak. The song utilizes pieces from the No Doubt hit, “Don’t Speak” while Guilla makes it his own.
You can listen to the track exclusively here.
You can grab your own copy of this song on Guilla’s EP, when he performs at Walter’s on December 13th. The show will be headlined by trap slow jams genius Dpat, and will also feature the underrated and dope hip hop of Fat Tony, the tripped out sounds of The New Mercies, and the future bass sounds of Josiah Gabriel. The show will be opened by a Children of Pop DJ set, the doors are at 8:00; and it’s all ages with tickets between $10.00 and $15.00.
