Born and raised on the south side of St. Louis, MO, Gerrod McKinney aka HoodDaBeast bka Hooodluum is a confident, somewhat arrogant, out-spoken rapper. Thought as maybe the last of my kind. Adlibs, delivery, and wordplay show faultlessness every time. Liking his song structure and magnetism is inevitable. Some say he stands in a league of his own.
