Golden Gloves, a versatile Hip Hop group based out of Auburn CA, are making some MAJOR noise on the West Coast. The lyrical and charismatic MC known as Wrecluse, along with the rythmatic and melodic vocalist/MC Jmar, are rapidly and continuously making BIG moves in the NOR-CAL scene.
Both of these talented young artist come from a upbringing filled with music and theater. They were inspired by several well known artists from several genres such as-
-Atmosphere, Living Legends, KRS-ONE, Boyz II Men, The Eagles, Brother Ali, J Dilla, Eminem, Tupac, Nas, 213, Tech N9ne, Bob Marley, Wu-Tang, Immortal Technique, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Coldplay, & Lauren Hill. Together, their unconditional love for REAL&QUALITY MUSIC ignited a message and legacy of their own.
In early 2011 the Gloves begin working in partnership with the Auburn Hip Hop Congress (AHHC). They give credit to business and promotion managers,Fritzo Tyler, Rocky Zapata & Natalie Pohley for really putting them on, and connecting them with the big stage as well as the local community.
In less then a 2 years of performing they have already blessed the stage with SEVERAL hip hop legends including-
-Zion I, Andre Nickatina, The Jacka, Too Short, The Grouch & Eligh of Living Legends, Scarub of Living Legends, Hollowtip, Percee P, One Below of Binary Star, and KRS-ONE.
They are also very connected with the local hip-hop scene in the Sacramento area as well, frequently rocking shows with local favorites such as- -Task One, Chozin, Addict Merchants, J Ross Parelli, J Ras of Soulifted, First Dirt, & Mercenary ENT.
But The Golden Gloves are about making a impact in much more then on the soapbox or in the booth. Alongside AHHC, they are making a difference in youth community involvement everyday by focusing on bridging the gap between adolescents and adults through the power of HIP HOP.
(i.e) Wrecluse teaches writing classes on vocab extension and subject matter through the Placer County Arts Council once a month at the Placer County Library. They are usually held on Thursdays and anyone is welcome. (for more info message us via reverb nation or facebook).
