G.T.I.M., born Robert Rodriguez , is an acronym for Gtek the ILL Meta4. He was raised in Chicago with music instilled into his daily life since a baby. His father was a DJ , and mother a music enthusiast.
G.T.I.M. first began writing around the 1st grade and since has won awards for his talents. Years later these creative skills were channeled into poetry and Hip Hop around the 4th or 5th grade. In the 7th grade G.T.I.M. was known to have appealing charisma and slight acting skills so he was asked to perform a rap song dressed as former president Abe Lincoln. It was his first time ever rapping in front of a large audience. This random request solidified his love for performing live and GTek the ILL Meta4 hasn’t stopped performing and making music since. Now with well over a decade of honing his technique G.T.I.M. displays his love of music in a manner that is socially conscious , witty , and fun directed in Hip Hop form.
