GV (Gangsta Villainz) is a hip-hop group based in Washington D.C. The group consists of three members: Mac Mall, Niko, and Millsapp.
Niko Estep, a.k.a. “Niko” was born October 4 1988 in Washington D.C. He began writing rhymes at 14 yrs old and immediately knew that music was his life's calling. His influences range from T.I. To 50 Cent.
Jamall Thomas, a.k.a. “Mac Mall” was born on May 30th 1989 in Washington D.C. He compares his style both as a rapper and an individual to one of his idols, Notorious B.I.G.
Rhyiem Mattocks, a.k.a. “Millsapp” was born on February 6,1988 in Washington D.C. Like his childhood friends Mac Mall and Niko, he’s been rapping since the age of 14. He immediately knew music was his destiny.
Although Gangsta Villainz’s influences range from Bob Marley to Eminem, respectively, their love for music comes from varying sources. Mac Mall accredits his love of music to listening to his grandfather play “old school” records. Niko was introduced to rap music by his sister and older brother who both rap as well.
In 2012, Gangsta Villainz released their first mixtape “3 The Hard Way” and in August of 2012, they released “Real Live”, the video for one of the singles on the mixtape. Currently they are working on videos for “4 Chill Mode” & “420”. They plan to release another mixtape in early to mid 2013.
