When you listen to Kap-G’s heavy southern drawl, one thing is clear: he’s from the ATL. The proud Mexican-American grew up in Atlanta, home to Dirty South acts such as Outkast, Ludacris and T.I. Now he’s trying to reach their level.
“Pharrell was saying I’d be the voice for the Mexicans. The Mexicans who work at the hotel, who do the housekeeping, who work in the kitchen… They gonna love you, cause you’re really speaking out for them,” said Kap-G in an interview with Buzzfeed.
Kap-G plays Fidel in Dope, a movie about music geeks trying to survive high school in Inglewood, California. Directed by Rick Famuyiwa, the film was produced by Pharrell and Forest Whitaker, and premiered at Sundance in February.
Not to mention Fabolous, Kirko Bangz, Chief Keef, Spenzo and Young Dolph. His recently-released mixtape Like A Mexican features producers such as Pharrell, Kid Cray, Bangladesh and Drumma Boy. Check out the 15-track mix tape here.
Kap-G sells hats, sweatshirts, hoodies, and tees that say “Atlanta Vato” and “Que Pasa Homes” that range from $20 to $40. His designs are manufactured by Fortune Entertainment, an Atlanta-based label. He told The Hundreds: “If I wasn’t rapping I think I’d want to be something in fashion.”
