Guttah Fam Music Group …….Hailing from Charleston South Carolina and lead by the charismatic and multi talented rapper A.G. is definitely a company with a roster that the entire music industry needs to be aware of ….Simply put if you are not doing business with this company and or attending their concerts and supporting them via streams and downloads you surely are not on the next wave with regards to how they are going to change the game . Everyone is aware of the current success coming from North Carolina however South Carolina will be put on the map nationally with the promotion and marketing campaign behind A.G's debut "NO MERCY" album which also features the labels future new sensation Mel1k …….A.G's vision and work ethic is equivalent 

to that of southern innovators and free thinkers on a major business level that have previously come before him . He defies the norm with regards to songwriting and production making you think you have seen this before but upon reflection you notice that his style delivery and format are a breathe of fresh air out of the box while at the same time paying homage to the independent labels and artist that came before him . "No Mercy" is currently available on all streaming platforms .
