BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — For as long as Avery can remember, rapping has always been a part of his blood.

“When I was in my freshman year of high school I wrote my first song back in 2004 and ever since then I never looked back,” said Avery Gill, rapper.

Avery Gill or ‘The Definitive’ comes up with his own rhymes and writes all his music. He recently released his debut album called, ‘The Legend’ inspired by one of his favorite rappers.

“That album the legend reminds me of Dr. Dre’s self titled debut album ‘The Chronic’ in 1992,” said Gill.

Avery has a mild form of autism, but that doesn’t slow him down one bit.

“He had all his material did it all by himself made the music in garage band, made the beat, wrote the lyrics, had everything all done and all he needed was a little push to kind of get the album out there. he even created the album cover,” said Nick Cacciotti, People Inc. Life Quality Coach.

Nick Cacciotti is Avery’s Life Quality Coach. He helped Avery make copies of his debut album, and organized a CD launch party earlier this week.

“His main goal, anyone that knows Avery knows that it’s to get this album out there and to start his rapping career,” said Cacciotti.

Avery spends a lot of time perfecting his craft in the media room at the Arts Experience Program. A lot of his lyrics are about his friends, and his life.

“Rappers rap so crazy nowadays they need to take a break, they need to chill, calm down and listen to some real rhymes,” said Gill.

Avery has a Facebook page called Awesome Sauce Records where you can follow the progress of his record label: https://www.facebook.com/theawesomesaucerecords/?fref=ts

Avery says this debut album is one of many more to come. His album ‘The Legend’ is for sale at the Museum of Disability History.
