New Sheriff in Town
The well known Georgia Boy aka Lil Soulja with the hit singles \'Kill Yo Self,\' \'What It Is Hoe,\' and \'Dance Hoe.\' Georgia Boy Lil Soulja aka Rojshawn Barrett 22 yrs old. A native of Columbus, GA. Raised on the Southside of Columbus, grew up like a regular adolescent from the hood. He was inspired to rap at a young age (5) after the death of his favorite uncle Desmond Audridge. Shot down at the age of 17. From a gun shot wound to the neck and chest. This really inspired him to start speaking through his music, telling people his thoughts and feelings through pen and paper. He was also introduced to the streets at a young age from his uncle Michael Joyner aka (Fatboy) on the streets of North Carolina. Fatboy was a well known dope dealer, and he did not hide what he did from his nephew Georgia Boy, who quickly picked up his uncle\'s habits and tried to make fast money. Georgia Boy quit school at da age of 16 and moved to Montgomery, AL to go to job corps. Where he stayed for a year and then moved back to Columbus, GA until he was 19. Then he moved wit his uncle Marcus Strickland in Atlanta, GA. Stayed for a lil minute. But wasn\'t doing anything constructive. So he moved to Charlotte, NC and hooked up with his cousin DJ Unique, who was on Bad Boy records at the time DJing for Da Band and Chopper Young City. So then he started taking the music business serious, and then started to travel with DJ Unique to various cities, concerts shows etc. He watched and learned how to work in the music business, but in may of 2005, Georgia Boy opened up for Chopper Young City in Johnson City, TN. And Chopper loved Georgia\'s stage performance, energy and his southern style lyrics. So then Georgia Boy ended up getting a call from Chopper. Asking GA did he want to go on tour with him. So GA ended up being chopper\'s hype man for a year and some months. Then took his own route to success, when Chopper got dropped from bad boy. After that GA started doing his own thing, and started opening up for some of the biggest names in the game, such as. Lil Wayne, Baby, Jim Jones, Crime Mobb, Lil Flip, TI, Outkast, Franchise Boyz, Ludacris, Master P, Young Buck and more. He now has various mixtape in the streets, such as. \'real recognize real\' hosted by DJ unique. That is his his collaboration mixtape f/ Georgia boy, popnbulletz, and chopper young city. Also \'country boy with country wayz\', \'country & gutta\', and the new mixtape \'da most hated kill yoself\' vol. 3 hosted by dj gary from Richmond, ca.
