Gk Nesso, ASNC Records

IMG_2887WEB1

Ryan Walker-Smith, Gk Nesso, is an emerging rapper born in Toronto, Ontario who spent most of his life relocating around the city while being raised in a strict-single-parent household by a mother who worked diligently to ensure that the principles of hard work, and determination, were prominent features in his character. He was introduced to music at a very young age where he not only took piano lessons, but at the age of 13 he wrote his first rap. Looking up to artists such as Jay-Z, 50 Cent, Lil Wayne, and Michael Jackson for inspiration, he began developing his own style.

Nesso reflects, “The rise of Biggie and Pac was before my time. I caught only their later mainstream hits. 50 Cent and Game were the B.I.G. and the Pac of my era in my opinion. Those were the two artist who really blew up big from the east and west coast and it made me look deeper into Hip Hop because I saw them both rise to the top.”

Nesso attended Sinclair Secondary School in Durham, Ontario where he formed a Rap crew named Goodkidz with friends and began to record vocals to mainstream instrumentals. As his name began to linger around the Durham region, he began to realize that in order to follow in the footsteps of his idols he would need to accumulate his own money and push his own music independently. After moving out west in 2013 to work in the oil patch industry, he returned in 2015 hungrier than ever and with the funds to build his own studio and launched his record label ASNC Records.
