God Body. God With Me. God In Me. That’s the first thing you see when you land on his Instagram profile. Growing up in the Bible Belt, God Body Bingo, was undoubtedly immersed in the Christian culture, church and traditions and uses these experiences to propel the narrative in his new album “Off The Books” available on major music streaming platforms such as Apple and iTunes. In the video the Rapper proposes that rap is gospel music pushing people out of their comfort zones and forcing them to confront the realities of lived experiences. What are your thoughts?

Rewind: Recording Artist Guch

Rewind: Recording Artist Guch

“Louisiana native,” Andrea Clay discovered her love for music at the age of 5. Inspired by 2Pac, a liberated and educated thug, she began writing conscious and subconscious lyrics in 95. Throughout her childhood she turned to music like a security blanket and made the studio her safe zone. Initially “Infinity”, the lyrical whiz took on the pseudonym: GUCH.  “Infinity didn’t define me…I mean, the name was cool,  and of course I want my music to be everlasting but when my friends asked me how I was…I always replied ‘I’m Guchhh.’ Meaning..I’m good..nothing bothers  me.”

Digging into her story further, it became evident that in music Andrea really is Guchhh, unbothered. No matter the worries of the world she maintains a constant peace. In spite of familial hardships and unfathomable circumstances, GUCH has remained true to her passion.

When asked about her support system, the list was too vast to be listed.  Of course, her family and friends were mentioned, but she was certain to give all Glory and Honor to God for the privilege to be capable of converting emotions of herself as well as others through music.

Her personality matches her passion.  In her spare time she volunteers and works in her music.  She enjoys working with children with special needs.  This is one artist in tune with what matters.
