This week’s hot new artist comes from our very own roster. Not only is G-B.A.L.L the first artist to be managed by V20Live but he recently won 1st place at the Coast 2 Coast Music Industry Mixer | Chicago Edition on August 23, 2012.

G-B.A.L.L stands for ‘Growing Beyond All Life’s Limitations’ which in our opinion is a great message to represent.
