Rhythm the M3, Neighborhood Hero


“I didn’t want to just be this rapper dude who made something of himself,” he said. “I wanted to be a hero for my neighborhood, a good example to the youth [who] understood the same difficulties that we had in a lower economic, inner city situation.”

Music blared from Rudy Gutierrez’s dorm room on a regular basis during his freshman year at the University of Texas in Austin. Gutierrez, who began dabbling in music at the age of 7, quickly earned a reputation as the dorm disc jockey.

Gutierrez, who now goes by the stage name Rhythm the M3, is pairing his music venture with his education. The 24-year-old already holds two associates degrees in commercial recording and liberal arts from Cedar Valley College and now he is working on a degree in business administration at Eastfield College in Mesquite, TX.

“He can artistically craft words in a way that is quite visionary for me,” said Courtney Carter Harbour, executive dean of the Office of Student Engagement and Retention. “We herald a lot of rap artists — Kanye West, Nas, Jay Z, Common — who have songs that are socially conscious messages. I think Rudy fits within that same genre of artists.”

Supporters are eagerly awaiting the release of his first studio album in 2015, self titled and released through CD Baby/Beast Mode Records. The movement has grown from an idea to an independent artist on the cusp of major moves.
