You'd be hard pressed to meet a rapper as humble as Tom Gist. Paradoxically, you would find it even more challenging to name another lyricist as talented. Embodying the work ethic of the independent artist, and bodying every record he gets on, are equal parts of this Harlem-bred MC. From his days battling under the alias Arrogance to his breakout appearance on Cam'ron's Public Enemy #1 mixtape, Gist gives us the story behind the struggle. We get the word on his work with Ransom, the Diplomats, the Gistmatic mixtape, and what it is that motivates one of rap's most underrated.
