Countless guest appearances and collaborations later, the 31 year-old rapper recently completed work on his debuted CD entitled "Love, Life and Loyalty". UnRated Magazine recently got a chance to talk to G.L.C. to learn about his past, present and future.

How did you get started in music:

Well, I got started at a very young age doing talents shows like in elementary school and park districts. Entered talent shows and I rapped LL Cool J raps, I did original raps, Ice-T raps, I won talent shows and I figured, hey, I could do is something with this. A few years later met a guy by the name of Kanye West he was making beats. He was like 15 at the time, we were both very young. A friend of mine introduced me to him, said he makes some cool beats, went over to his crib, heard the beats, we had a lot of things in common, became good friends, and we began working together at a young age and still work together today.
