Memphis, Tennessee rapper Gyft caused a stir during the spring and summer of 2010. His hit single “They Just Dont Know” sparked lots of attention from on-line blogs, Youtubers, and Twitter-holics. Riding the wave of success from the song, Gyft has committed himself to doing more work to satisfy his new fan base. Sitting with CKHID on-line during a Las Vegas weekend, Gyft explains how he started and cancels rumors of being signed to Kanye West’s GOOD music label.
“Ok, lets clear that up. That record was not produced by Kanye. I don’t know how that got out there. I dont know why that started. I guess it sounds like Kanye and somebody put it on Youtube but I don’t know. That was not by Kanye (West) and Kanye had nothing to do with it. So dont let me lie to y’all and build my hype off that,” said Gyft.
A fan of Kanye West’s work, Gyft also explained in the interview how he would lie to work with the Chicago-born producer. Not wishing to live off false hype or lies, Gyft has plans to deliver more music in the near future to prove his music is not a fluke. Sponsored by RockSmith clothing, he recently released a new Hip Hop mixtape which can be found via www.IAmGyft.com.
