GTA – Wanna Be Myself (Promo Track) (2008)

New Hip Hop collective from Oxford, ready to release their first full album. This is their first single featuring DJ FU produced by DJ Tacktick
Here you got some other infos about them and the track
Having met at Gosford Hill School (Kidlington) in 2000, Neill Timms a.k.a Ineffable (22) and Chima Anya (23) quickly created a vibe that excited anyone with a vague musical interest in the Oxford vicinity.

Now a fully qualified Practicing Doctor and Assistant Accountant, Chima and Neill, respectively, have embarked upon releasing their debut album, “The Way”, with the hope of adding some much needed charisma and sophistication to the UK’s “urban” scene.
Drawing influences from the aforementioned hip-hop legends and their cohort, GTA have the substance of old school hip-hop spliced with the cutting edge swagger and charisma of what hip-hop is evolving into. A quote from Chima’s facebook:

“The exuberance of the O’Jays, the grandeur of Mozart, the swagger of Jay Dilla, the sould of Al Green, the sentiment of Elton John, the golden tone of early Stevie. Ladies’ and gentlement, I give you… GTA”
Despite Chima moving to Birmingham for 5 years to complete a Medical degree and Neill going on to Oxford Brookes to study Business; they managed, during their student years, to be invited to support legends such as KRS 1, Amp Fiddler, Flavour Flav. They also put out their debut EP, “Love is Here”, in conjunction with Blunted Records – a venture hampered both by Blunted’s incompetence and GTA’s own naivity.
