Gotti seems to be a pretty laid-back guy, but when Nick asked the “Put a Date On It” rapper if he has every “fanned out”, he admitted that he has been star struck before.
He says, “Yeah, yeah, a couple times. Long time ago I was in the studio with Dre. Dre probably don’t remember this… I had met Nate Dogg in Memphis, at a strip club in Memphis and he was like man, ‘Come out to LA I want to introduce you to Dre. and all that…I fly to LA…and Dre in the studio….This was back when, ya know, I had the music on the CD, ready to give Dre the CD.” Nick agreed that it was a crazy story and Gotti had to chuckle, in disbelief of the whole scenario himself.
Artists often get inspiration from people they grew up listening to. When asked about his top 5 favorite rappers, Yo Gotti lists them off confidently saying, “Jay, of course, 50, Juvenile…Pac and Wayne”.
Gotti also goes on speak on the work his is currently putting in with the assistance of Roc Nation to combat the conditions of the Mississippi prison system and the rapper came out with a new single last week, “H.O.E. (Heaven On Earth)”, and we can look forward to hearing more from him this year.
