NOTES
P.O.V.E.R.T.Y. now known as as P.Gutter is being called today's saviour of Hip Hop. In life we are all searching for mental steadiness and emotional stability in order to achieve a state of equilibrium or balance. In the music world where the standard is to be categorized or labeled as one thing, balance can seem more like a hindrance to one's career rather than an aid. But for multifaceted hip-hop artist P Gutter, versatility not only shapes him as a musician but also as a person. An accomplished producer, writer, drummer, pianist, and saxophonist in addition to his awe-inspiring rhyming make this upstate emcee an enigma in a somewhat predictable industry. P.Gutter has one successful album under his belt and another in the works. He is currently working with very familiar names in the music industry like Super Producer/Artist, "Ron Brownz", Multi Platinum Producers "Midi Mafia" and "The Diaz Brothers". P Gutter is poised to take his balanced approach to life and hip-hop to the world. Starting in the Spring of '09 you will be able to hear his music on major radio stations nationwide, as well as on XM Radio, Sirius and Music Choice. Born and raised in the capitol city of Albany, NY, a young Frank Thompson had a familiar upbringing that many people can relate to. With two loving parents that split right after his birth, he was forced into being raised for the most part by his single mom. With his mom being a choir director and his dad possessing impeccable abilities on the saxophone, it is no surprise that P Gutter picked up music at an early age. Playing the drums in church at the age of 4 years old, many of his elders labeled him as a prodigy. These prophecies would hold true but not without some obstacles along the way. Although his working mom provided him a good home and raised him partially in the church, Frank still found himself seduced by the politics of his city and the street dreams that existed outside the sanctified walls of the church and his home. It was these factors that shaped him into the well-balanced individual he is today
