Born in a small town in Southwest Georgia called Albany. Gutta Gustiavo (Guh-tah Gus-tee-ah-voe) also known as G.3Stacks (Jee-dot-three-stacks) dropped out of high school in 2002 with known associates Young Ghost and Toom Hitlah to begin his career and start a group named “The Verbal Assasins”. Early on, his talent was undeniable. The group started working on their first EP at Platinum Sounds Recording Studio. The groups success was short lived when 17 year old Gutta was arrested in Febuary 2003 for numerous drug charges. Since it was his first offense as an adult, he received probation. Upon his release he made his return to the music scene, now linking up with artists such as Sir Bam, Phat Bastard, and new found best friend and manager Buddy Boy Slim (Anthony Holt Jr.). Together they formed a label Side Hustle/Souf Rider Entertainment. Over the course of the next 3 years, Gutta was incarcerated a total of 8 times. Gutta released two projects during his association with the label, the first one entitled “Cutthroat Pimptite Gangsta Sh*t” and the second being a collab with label mate Young Ghost entitled “XXXClusive Vol.1” in which thousands of units for both projects were distributed throughout South Georgia and North Florida. In 2006 Gutta was released from the Dougherty County Jail and relocated to Lake City Florida. In 2008 Gutta and former label mate Young Ghost did a host of shows opening for artists such as Rich Boy, Papa Duck, Bloodraw, Jackio,Pretty Ricky, and etc… In late 2008, Gutta took his talents to Tallahasee Florida with aspirations on starting his own label with manager and best friend Buddy Boy Slim. Tax Free Records the Nation was born. Gutta started working on his first project as a solo artist entitled “Tax Free Dollars” at 360 Music Studios. Recording came to a halt when Gutta was arrested in 2010 again in Georgia on drug charges. Once he was released he made an epic return to the booth recording songs such as “Staring in the Mirror prod. by Toom Hitlah”, Oprah (Bands) prod. by blocko da kid” , Fly prod. by Detavious Deriso (Skeet) and the catalog goes on and on. In 2013 long time friend and manager Buddy Boy Slim became ill. A fatal tumor was found on his brain. He was given 2 weeks to live. The news was devistating. Buddy Boy underwent a series of treatments in an effort to alleviate the tumor but unfortunately on 11/27/14 he passed away. Gutta Gustiavo still plans on carrying out the dreams that he and his former manager once shared. Gutta has huge aspirations for TFRtheNation and looks to turn his company into a lucrative empire. He has released three projects entitled “Tax Free Dollars the Street Album *2015”, “Welcome 2 The Nation *2016” and the most highly anticipated one of them all “G.IIIStacks *2017”. Gutta collaborated with a fleet of producers such as Ole E (Trapp Tracks), JFree, DME,Skeet (2Hot4TV), Jaydee (2HOT4TV), Trill (Group of Royalty) , Sherm, Dame Dozha, and etc. Unlike most “artists” today, Gutta Gustiavo recites his life in his music. Each song exhibits exuberant details of per say situations that he’s encountered throughout his life. He captures the attention of a broad audience with lyrics that depict perfect examples of what it’s like growing up and living in poverty in America. Rather than recite fabricated lyrics of living lavish on every song, Gutta Gustiavo focuses more so on creating music that has substance. Some of his biggest influences are Tupac Shakur, Biggie Smalls, Twista, Big Krit and a few others.
