Following the release of their of debut project, Alternative Lifestyle, and a string of live shows including last year’s Flavor Fest main stage, Chicago-based rap trio GA3 is set to release the first single off of their highly anticipated Unusual Suspects LP, due later this year. The lead single, entitled “Feetwork” will be available on all digital outlets on August 4th, 2015. The hard hitting, upbeat track is the work of the group’s go to producer, Nathional of the Artistic Universe.
The track is an ode to the city they all love and the sound anyone attending Sunday morning church service will recognize. “Feetwork merges the sound of the streets of Chicago with the shouting sound churchgoers are familiar with,” says GA3 front man DNell. “The song is about believers getting up and doing work and not waiting on God to hand you anything. We gotta make it happen for ourselves sometimes. But also, feetworking is a popular dance known throughout Chicago, so it just made sense.”
GA3 is still busy in the studio putting the finishing touches on their sophomore project, Unusual Suspects. The group recently released a mini-documentary which gives you a behind the scenes look at their creative process as well as a look into who they are as individuals. “GA3 is at a point both as a group and as individuals where we nothing more than to be used by God, “says VOP. “It doesn’t matter the scale or how big or small the platform….while it doesn’t seem logical for God to use us when he has Lecrae, Dee-1 and so many others, that’s our very point. We’re unusual suspects.”
GA3 is an unsigned hip-hop group comprised of three individuals: VOP, DNell and Trenton. Hailing from Chicago’s south side, the group was formed as a way to keep these young men off of the streets and out of trouble. DNell and VOP both reside in Chicago with their wives and young sons. Trenton recently graduated from SIU-Carbondale with a degree in Radio/TV Production.
