Bio

Born in 1988, Benn Gunn or Gunn Boy is a rapper from Rockingham Western Australia. Since his early days rapping with neighbourhood crew, 'the' "Original Rocko Boys" (04 - 09), Gunn Boy has emerged as a solo force in the perth rap/hip hop scene. After attending early freestlyle competitions through Grenn Gross Productions' previously run Mixtape 'Tuesdays', he dropped his debut LP Bustin' Out as a free giveaway. The CD allowed him to both; start performing throughout Fremantle, accompanied by rapper/finisher/homie Shock, as well as gain publicity and a following for his music, here and across certain areas of the country. His painted face & hardcore/stylistic approach to Rap is unique and offers a variety of rap music, not readily available or even produced in this country. In 2011 Gunn Boy is set to release his 2nd full length LP "The Serial Killer From South of the River: Return of the Madman", as well as a re-release version of "Bustin' Out" that will be available to the entire country. This re-release will contain long over due coverart, extra Shock verses & a remix version of "GoodwiththeBad" (beat by Slande) to be available for both mp3 download and CD purchase! With a return to rap battling in February at newly established PerthCityBattles (www.youtube.com/user/perthCityBattles), these huge solo productions dropping, and continued LIVE performaces around Perth, it's shaping up to be a busy and eventful year for the Gunn & MURDA-US Productions.
