Robbie G
Robbie G
Robert Gruenbauer is an emcee from Guelph Ontario that goes by the name, "Robbie G."


He began making hip-hop music in 1994, recording tracks to play on the announcements at school using a karaoke machine, an old lamp (to hold the mic) and some duct tape. What started as a simple way to create awareness on a particular topic soon became an everyday enjoyment for Robbie G and he was instantly inspired and invigorated with the need to be on a mic sharing his thoughts. Growing up in rural areas of Ontario, Canada with little to no hip-hop scene it was hard for him to be heard by the local people and even harder to find quality hip-hop CD's in the stores. With the internet becoming more popular, he quickly went to his computer in search of hip-hop for listening and also for a platform he could use to promote and release his music worldwide.

Robbie has found the internet to be an essential tool in acquiring new fans and promoting his music. He learned early on that no one was going to come along and make all his dreams come true. He had to do this all himself and after reading the book "I Don't Need a Record Deal" he was convinced that the DIY approach was best. It became very overwhelming as he took on the role of booking agent, engineer, promoter....and musician but it helped him learn all the facets of the industry and develope a solid work ethic that would serve him well even to this day. After doing a handfull of shows in his local area, his eyes were set on Toronto, the big city! Using his online connections he got a few shows booked in the city and not to long after was noticed by a hip-hop camp called "I Respect Music" run by a woman named "Essence". Once they saw some of his performances and got to know the type of person he was they selected him to be a part of the team. This soon led to doing shows with such artists as Canibus, Killah Priest (Wu Tang Clan), Joell Ortiz, Scratch form the Roots, Kurupt, Choclair, Freeway, Illa J, Frank Nitt and many amazing Toronto artists.
