ABOUT BACKROAD GEE
BackRoad Gee has often been described as onomatopoetic for the way he raps. His bars and rowdy choruses bunch rounded pops and guttural rumbles around sharp ticks and clacks. He switches deftly from burly street boasts into tongue rattling sound effects, and back to a throaty croon that wouldn’t sound out of place in a pulpit. It’s difficult to put his appeal into words – mostly because he’s invented so many of his own. His idiosyncratic slang terms make their way into choruses and adlibs, and the result is a dizzying mélange of sounds that he shapes and sands down into something lean, physical, and infectious – a mélange that has also seen him garner support and acclaim from BBC 1Xtra, Spotify, Apple Music, No Signal, Complex, Clash Magazine, and DJ Mag, among other tastemakers.
