The senselessness of Hip-Hop has given birth to a new movement and a new type of artist. GAUGE (David Veira) the 'ill-talented' emcee, has embarked on a new venture that promises to put the sense back into Hip-Hop as he reps for the working class.
GAUGE's positive spin on real-life situations has gained him both street credibility and industry attention. Being a native of Flatbush, Brooklyn, there is no doubt that his hip-hop roots run deep. His lyrical and rhyming skills were seasoned by his Trinidadian heritage as well as legendary schoolyard battles on his home turf.
GAUGE's unique flavor sparked the attention of media such as but not limited to "On Deck Demo Reviews" and "Rap Pages" in addition to a feature in The Source's Unsigned Hype column.
Noticed at an open mic event by Maestro Fresh Wes, (the legendary Canadian emcee) GAUGE later toured with him throughout the United States and Canada.
This opportunity led to performances with the Fugees, GangStarr, Wu-Tang Clan, and Coolio. His work ethic and fan base enabled him to attain these achievements without being signed to a major record label. His stage appearances were preceded by the release of "Cranium," an underground release that sold over 9000 units. The single's success included 13 weeks of airplay on Hot 97, in addition to GAUGE's recognition as one of the highest selling underground artist. Another highlight of his career included a European tour in countries such as Germany, England and Switzerland. He enjoyed even more success through the MTV circuit by performing with Trinidad's Soca Monarch winner Bunji Garlin at the International Concert in New Orleans and by hosting an episode of "Sucker Free Sunday".
GAUGE, also a member of the renaissance group Shamellion Rebellion, has performed throughout New York. The Shamellion Rebellion is critically acclaimed for having one of the greatest stage shows in the Tri-State area. His new album entitled, "December Thirty-First Nineteen Ninety-Nine," executive produced by Roger "Buddah" Munroe of the Producers Coalition of America, is set for release on the Mental Link, Inc. Label New Year's Eve 2006. Blessed with the ability to turn any situation into music and keeping it spiritually grounded is what allows David V. to GAUGE the SITUATION....
