Rap as Philanthropy: An Enlightening Interview with G-Side’s ST 2 Lettaz

Settled on the north side of Alabama is a city called Huntsville, and in that city a little operation called G-Side plies their critically-praised but commercially-underappreciated craft. The hip hop duo, led by ST 2 Lettaz (Stephen) and Yung Clova (David), is what happens in the real world: a couple guys work really hard at what they love, try to scrape by financially, and spend a lot of hours working at places like gas stations to get the job done.

Now about to release their fourth album, Island, we caught up with ST 2 Lettaz at Fun Fun Fun Fest in (wait for it) the tattoo trailer for a truly illuminating talk on being a working artist, slinging records out of a gas station, staying true to Huntsville, and how rappers do give back to the community, even if we don’t always hear about it.
