Gee Watts


Making light of a dark situation is what many people living in the grimy inner-streets of Kansas City have to do. The newcomer Gee Watts has been lucky enough to transcend from the streets by his love for music. Taking a different path after run-ins with the system Gee focuses on using his lyricism and intellect to enlighten the world on Kansas City by telling his story. Only rapping for roughly 3 years, he has released over 11 unofficial mixtapes, performed at SXSW, appeared on Emilo Rojas "Breaking Point Tour", and caught the ear of Hip-Hop's crown holder Kendrick Lamar.

April 7th, 2013 Smoking Section premiered Gee Watts first official mixtape "Watts Up" that featured Kendrick Lamar and settled as Gee Watts introduction into the music scene. With a steady rising fan base Gee plans to release his best work yet with label Distant Dreams Music and Multimedia design company 1990 Never.
