Artist Name: G4SHI (formerly known as The Kid Gashi)
Origin: Brooklyn, NY
Introducing G4SHI (pronounced Gahsi) is of Albanian descent, born in Kosova, but fled with his family when he was five years old because of civil war. Moving to a number of countries, mainly in Europe, Larry and his family made it to New York City in 1998, now residing in Brooklyn.
Struggling with English, he turned to music to help ease his adjustment into society, and quickly became hooked to rap/hip-hop music. He adopted initially the name The Kid Gashi to change it later to Gashi and eventually G4SHI. In 2011 and 2013 he released two mixtapes; with those mixtapes G4SHI got recognition by his city and nationally. He’s been featured on records of French Montana and Nipsey Hussle. His latest project 4Play can be heard below, along with his new video for What They Know.
