Despite his young age, Emmsjé Gauti is a veteran when it comes to the rap game. After honing his talent for the last 13 years in Reykjavik’s small but vibrant and competitive rap scene, he released his debut solo album in 2010 which proved a big hit among fans and critics alike. Catapulting into the spotlight with his feature on the Blazroca’s hit “Elskum Þessar Mellur”, the aptly titled “Bara Ég” (“Only Me”) solidifies his status as one of Iceland’s most prominent young artists, striking an eclectic balance between flamboyant pop, humor and unadulterated rhyming skills. Say what you want about young Emmsjé Gauti, he gets the party started! Gauti released his second solo album in 2013 called “ÞEYR”. “ÞEYR” is a darker, heavier release than his first outing and showcases the growth of the artist. In the last couple of years song’s like “Nýju föt keysarans”, “Kinky” and others have recieved a lot of airplay in Iceland and his 2015 hit “Strákarnir” was his biggest yet. That single was followed by his third LP, titled "Vagg & velta" which is one of the albums of the year 2016 in Iceland. If you are into punk-like shows, stage diving and random bullshit, Gauti is your go to guy.
