Slept on rap artist, Gyft, winner of K97’s Next Big Thing Showcase, recently spoke with MemphisRap.com about winning his recording deal with Koch Records in the music showcase with WHRK K97.1 FM, what it felt like winning and more. The rapper, who isn’t your typical Memphis rapper with a typical Memphis rap sound, claims he “is a hustler that beat the odds” and is not influenced only by the city of Memphis but has influences from “all types of music from Mavado to Sting to Trick Daddy.”

Well, whatever the rapper has, it’s beginning to shine on others with his music releases such as the song “They Just Don’t Know” which is getting great feedback from fans online, and his song “Holla At My Kinfolk.”
