G Maly is a recording artist who hails from Oakland, California. Born, Gregory Brown in Hayward, California on September 23. He has resided in Oakland since age five. G Maly was first inspired to create his own music at just eight years old by watching his father, a former member of the group 187 FAC. His mother also fostered his interest in music introducing him to artists from different genres of music. This has a defining influence on his art-exposing him to artists such as 2Pac, Spice 1, E-40, Biggie Smalls, NWA, Mary J. Blige, Jay Z and others at an early age. As a young child he worked diligently on his craft and often performed his songs in the living room for his mother and friends.
In 2005, while attending Skyline High School in Oakland, he adopted G Maly, an acronym for God’s Most Artistic Little Youngsta as his stage name. He was originally part of a group known as “Maney Boiz" and later “The Originalz”- during this time he began creating his own beats and recording over his own production. GMaly continued his efforts in music throughout high school, and although it took a backseat to basketball at which he also excelled-playing varsity for Skyline High, his passion for music never wavered. His talents in basketball earned him a scholarship to Eastern Arizona College providing him with the opportunity to step outside of the community he grew up in-he later transferred to Imperial Valley College completing his educational endeavor.
In 2011, at age twenty-one, G Maly formed True Society Music Group (T.S.M.G.) and once again, began pouring all of his effort and energy into his childhood passion. He has opened for artists such as Yo Gotti, YG, J Stalin and Mac Mall. He has also developed a solid fan base, connecting with his audience through his gift for realistic storytelling that anyone with “a story” can relate to. His music is now being played on the Bay Area’s 106.1 KMEL radio station and is gaining even more popularity-a positive result from great a work ethic and high quality music.

He is a seasoned artist with endless potential. Having mastered a sound that is original-G Maly has managed to evolve into a great artist whose gift for music is undeniable.
