Kelvin Ward AKA Gutta da God was born in Temple, Tx on Jan 6 1989. Though he wouldnt know that until later in life due to the fact that from the tender age of 3 months to 9 years old Gutta was raised in a notoriously drug infested and high crime area of North Philadelphia. After loosing his mom in December of 96 while visiting realatives in Temple for the holidays. A "young" Gutta (no pun intended) started to look to music as an outlet for all of the pain and struggle he had been through at such an early age. Having to grow up in a single parent household with six other brothers and sisters gutta had to learn early that nothing in life was promised but death and that if u wanted something you would have to fight for it. Gutta credits his dad with being his super hero. "As a man, a black man at that raising seven kids by your self is a tough task but my dad did it. me coming of age now and seeing thing more clear i cant do anything but admire that."Early in music gutta drew inspiration from notable artists such as, Michael jackson and James Brown, to Tupac and Biggie and his most inspirational artist Jay-z. "I Was More of a student than a fan, I was always trying to figure out what made certain artist stand out from other artist it was like music 101 for me growing up". After writing rhymes for years and listening to a collection of classic albums. gutta finnaly recorded for the first time at the age of 12 recording the song "School yard" which gutta says is his favorite song he ever recorded. "It was my first one, you just cant relive that feeling." Now at the age of 22 and ready to take the game by storm gutta is mentally prepared for any and all of the challenges the game has to offer. Gutta is also the CEO of his own Militia Muzik Group Imprint which allready houses a diverse roster of up and coming talent That includes male rap collective "Militia Money Gang" and female teenage R&B/Hip-Hop sensation "ForeverMore". Gutta has performed numerous shows opening up for artist such as trina, Trae, lil Wil, Z-ro, Lil O, and others. Gutta also saw slight radio success with his single "Wood on my dash" which was in rotation for over 3 months on temples the Beat 106.3 in 2006 then again in 2009 with local area code anthem "254" which received spins on z92.3. Gutta says that all he wants his fan to know about him is that he is in it for the love of the game and not the money. And he plans to one day be in the same breath as the greats before him. "if u doing this you gotta want to be the best, aint no point in putting all youre effort and all youre finanaces in it if your not passionate about it and dont wanna be the best" Gutta is a very spiratual person and trys to keep god first in everything he does. With such a selfless desire and made for tv life gutta seems poised to make a lasting impression in the game and be a staple for many years to come.
