From a young age Gee absorbed music differently, being turned out to “absorbed music differently. His father turned him on to the likes of Jeezy, UGK, and Scarface. Even his grandma “a church type of lady” loved rap. However, EST Gee deconstructed it in his head. He studied the beats and the instrumentation. At the same time, he excelled in basketball and football under the shadow of the streets. Gaining a scholarship to play college football, he shuttled back and forth between Louisville and Texas. In late 2017, he picked up his own recording equipment and started cutting tracks. EST Gee made his debut with “New Number” during 2018 as he kicked the door down for 2019 projects such as El Toro and Die Bloody. Along the way, he also joined fellow Louisville spitter Jack Harlow on the Confetti standout “Rotten.” However, tragedy nearly derailed this momentum. Caught “in the wrong place at the wrong time, he got shot five times, suffering bullet wounds in his eye and stomach. After three weeks in the hospital, he was stuck on bedrest for another three weeks. At this point, he recorded Ion Feel Nun at his friend’s studio. “I made the whole tape at my partner’s house fucked up with 50 staples,” he admits. “I couldn’t even take a deep breath, and I had to record sitting down. I needed to keep my eye patch on too. Going through that, nothing can get to me anymore. I’m past trauma. I don’t feel it. I’m numb. It made me.” Ion Feel Nun yielded his breakout “On The Floor” [feat. Icewear Vezzo & Payroll Giovanni], posting up nearly 2 million YouTube views. Meanwhile, Pitchfork named 2020’s “Get Money” as “The must-hear rap song of the day” and claimed, “EST Gee establishes the sound of his Louisville.”
