History

ST 2 Lettaz and Yung Clova met at the Boys & Girls Club in Athens, Alabama and in 1999 they formed the group later known as G-Side.[2] G-Side together with Block Beattaz forms the nucleus of Slow Motion Soundz, an entertainment company based in Huntsville, Alabama.[2]

Their debut album, Sumthin 2 Hate, was released in 2007.[3] Huntsville International (2009) was at first planned to be released as a mixtape.[4] However, it became their official follow-up album to Starshipz & Rocketz (2008).[5]

G-Side released The One...Cohesive in 2011. It was produced by Block Beattaz, Clams Casino, A-Team, O'Third Entertainment, DJ Burn One, and the Basmo Family.[6] Anupa Mistry of Exclaim! described the album as "the actually good coming together of rap's current obsession with Southern talent [...] and experimental beats".[7] The duo released another album, Island, in the same year.[8] It was produced by Block Beattaz and Parallel Thought and features guest appearances from Bentley, PH and Joi Tiffany.[9]

In September 2012, it was announced that they had decided to part ways.[10] Their hiatus ended in November 2013.[11] The Gz II Godz album was self-released in 2014.[12]
