The first thing you notice when looking at Yo Gotti isn’t his pearly white teeth or his precisely trimmed hair; it’s his gargantuan jewelry. The Memphis, Tenn., native wears a three-dimensional globe—half a sphere with the words “Yo Gotti’s World” written on it—around his neck. This rapper, like many before him, obviously doesn’t shy away from attention. While his two singles, “Five Star Chick” featuring Gucci Mane, Trina, and Nicki Minaj, and the Lil Wayne-assisted “Women Lie, Men Lie,” speak for themselves, Gotti, whose motto is “I’m from the ‘hood, I’m not Hollywood,” is hoping that his major label debut, Live from the Kitchen, will garner the same attention from fans. With production from Jim Jonsin, Cool & Dre, Toomp, J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, and guest appearances by T.I. and Rick Ross, record sales are sure to be in his favor.
