The latest talent on the hip hop scene whose songs are being played on repeat is none other than GerkOne. The young musical genius hails from Windsor, Ontario in Canada.
From 2007, Gerkone started writing and recording music. He started to learn more about his music when he was under the wing of veteran Detroit artist J-Finn, GrekOne came into the spotlight eventually. With a lot of hard work, he released his first single “My Block” which has gained a lot of appreciation from the audience. It had hit a huge number on MySpace and YouTube which helped him to cement his place in the Windsor Hip Hop scene.
GerkOne released his final single in 2010, “Make It Happen” Ft. Cash Money’s 2x platinum recording artist 2 Pistols before it took a 10-year break from releasing any new music and even stopped writing as well as recording. In 2020, GerkOne made a strong comeback. Since then, GerkOne has dropped quality content for hip hop which includes the 11-track album “Pardon My Attitude” which is now available on all streaming platforms. This year in 2021 he released another single “Count It All ”. He said that there is more on the way from unexpected features to another full-length album, and the best part is, that they will all be released soon!
So how did GerkOne manage to make such a strong comeback especially after so many years out of the game? After all, a decade in hip hop means that a lot has changed, from linguistic trends and personal styles to topics for songs and most importantly, the competition. However, like a true artist, GerkOne has always had the ability to adapt and overcome, especially when it comes to creating music, his one true passion. Even though he wasn’t active as a composer himself, GerkOne still enjoyed the genre and kept himself updated about the hip hop industry as an avid listener. He said that fans and friends also supported his decision to take a break and were only overjoyed when he decided to return to the scene, and their happiness alone pushed him to take that final step. Now, it’s surprising GerkOne himself, how easily the words and beats flow out of him.
The artist has been posting bangers weekly on his Instagram page. The date of the upcoming singles or the music albums will be soon announced so the fans won’t have to wait for long. To know more about GerkOne, you can follow him on Instagram: https://instagram.com/gerkone?utm_medium=copy_link
