Gordo is a Virginia resident by way of Chicago. He has become one of the most influential artists in his area in less than a year. With the success of him and the rest of the YAP crew, it’s clear they are next. The song is simple; his only goal is to get bread. There are so many people stressed with COVID-19; Gordo is not one. He used this downtime to really gear up musically for the future.
His singles have been heating the streets of Northern VA in a way not many have seen before. His calm flow and chilling production have created a lane for him. Many rappers get to fly, but not many can talk about it the way Gordo does. He’s always been the first to start a trend, and his music is no different.
The new EP Swish Tape features a fire album cover that resembles Playstation’s classic game NBA Ballers. The tape clocks in at just under 30 minutes, and it’s all heaters. If you aren’t doing designer drugs and wearing high priced clothes, you probably won’t get it. His tape features dope verses from Detroit legend G.T. and fellow YAP affiliates Iso Sco & WopTalks. Gordo with Uncle Bari production has proven to be a recipe for success. Check out the new mixtape here to celebrate the luxury rapper’s mother’s born day.
