Rapper and producer LORD G is considered a legend and icon to many in both Detroit and Los Angeles' hip hop underground communities. The Detroit native was first heard under the name Eagle GT, as a member of D.O.P. (Detroit's Original Posse), one of the earliest rap groups to emerge on the Detroit hip hop scene in 1989. After signing with the now defunct recording label Scorcher Records, the group, which also included Darren D and Dj D, released it's first singles entitled "Let The Record Play", "I Ain't Buying It", and "Keep On Movin'" which featured the smooth melodic beats of Soul2Soul. After having contract disputes with their record label, the group changed their name and became "Lords Of Logic" and Eagle GT became Lord G. The "Lord's" joined forces with other local artists, MC Doggin' D, Dj Tink Thomas aka "The Funky Messiah", and Mr Mill, to create the triumphant finale style party song "Feel Al'right" which featured 7 of Detroit's hottest MC's. The collaborative effort seemed to be paying off when the group was invited to perform with Eric B and Rakim, but soon after, the group's members decided to explore different directions and pursue individual projects.
With Detroit's hip hop scene looking like a dead end for aspiring rappers, Lord G made his way out west and was soon discovered by Dr. Dre through Death Row's music director Tony Green, who was also a hometown friend of Lord G. While working with Dr. Dre at Death Row, Lord G, who was to be the first positive rapper on the label, began making beats and ghost writing for the camp's other artists. Lord G got a major buzz from his contribution to the Above The Rim soundtrack with "My Moni Rite" and followed it up with the smooth laid-back funk groove "For Real" (released on Da Entity / Black Orchid). Lord G was later signed to Red Ant and while working on his solo project was asked to join the group Militia, who scored a hit with the bangin' track "Burn". Lord G was brought in and featured on the remixed version which also included the Phat Pak's Mr Tan and Ms Toi. After the release of his solo album "Hot Ta Def on The Mic Chord", which was produced in part by Chris "The Glove" Taylor, Lord G reunited with members of Militia to release the CD entitled Militia All-Stars "Coming At Cha" (the songs were featured in Method Man's Documentary "The Strip Game").
Over the years, Lord G has produced music for other movie soundtracks including "Road Kings" (starring Glenn Plummer) and "Blank Check". He can also be heard delivering a voice over as the rapping voice of the cartoon character Robotron. Lord G has had the honor of working with Motown legend Norman Whitfield and he even contributed to the success of super star rapper Bow Wow by working as a lyrical coach for the young rapper early in his career. Lord G has been featured on a slew of compilations and mixtapes including Faces Of Fear (F.O.F.), "The TakeOver", and "Rollin' On Dubs", all the while eating up the underground circuit with his ferocious rhymes and venomous lyrics. With 20 years in the game and having appeared on albums that have sold 3 million copies collectively, Lord G is a proven and tested MC with the lyrical ability to redefine today's hip hop.
