East coast native Justin Ramon Gant better known as BOLDER STEEL hails from Steel City USA, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Undoubtedly a talent to be reckoned with, BOLDER STEEL attended CAPA High School of the Performing Arts in Pittsburgh, PA for 1 year before going on to graduate from fellow rap recording artist, Wiz Khlifa's almamater Taylor Allderdice High School in 2003. BOLDER STEEL cites his older brother, Richard Diggs aka “Diggs” and his older brother’s friends "D.O.G", “HUSS BLUE”, and “B. PORTER”, along with the rest of the “PARK LIFE” crew as his main influences. BOLDER STEEL consistently fine-tuned his writing and rhyming skills over the years by battling other up and coming rap artist’s on the mean streets of Homewood, an inner city suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
After managing a night club called “Grown n’ Sexy”, one of the most successful night clubs in Pittsburgh, PA… BOLDER STEEL was fortunate enough to make the acquaintance of Scott Briggs, owner of “OAG Management” a Pittsburgh, PA based entertainment company. BOLDER STEEL and Scott went on to release a digital concept single entitled, “WEALTH”. Approximately one year after leaving “Grown n’ Sexy”, BOLDER STEEL and his counterpart, FAT BOY decided to form their own label called, “Stack or Starve Empire.” Shortly after forming Stack or Starve Empire, BOLDER STEEL signed Exclusive Management Contracts with JiGANTiC Entertainment a Multi-Facet Artist Management Company owned and operated by BOLDER STEEL’s multi-talented older brother, James CRUMMY Gant. Crummy's first port of call was to release BOLDER STEEL’s highly anticipated second single, “SHE LIKEN IT.” She Liken It was officially released by JiGANTiC Entertainment on August 15, 2016 and is currently available in more than 200 countries and has industry professionals standing up to take heed. BOLDER STEEL is slated to release his third single cleverly entitled, "Recipe" through JiGANTiC Entertainment March 14, 2017
