Mini Bio (1)

Gawtti, a.k.a. King Folsom, is a member of the Boo Yaa T.R.I.B.E., a crew of five brothers and a cousin, former gangsters turned rappers/musicians. Gawtti and the rest of his brothers all spent time being locked up due to the complications of their life on the streets. Gawtti and his brothers repped the West Side Piru Bloods while their cousin in the group, Murder One, came from the Park Village Crips. However, after one of their brothers were murdered, they decided to straighten out and move temporarily to Japan to get out of their neighborhood in Los Angeles. Having grown up singing in church where their father was a reverend, they brought out their musical talents by forming the Boo Yaa T.R.I.B.E., a.k.a. the Samoan Mafia. They've also started a clothing company headed up by Gawtti which shares his name, Gawtti clothing.

In The Italian Job (2003), while Gawtti plays the role of Skinny Pete, his bodyguard is played by his older brother and crew-mate Kobra. The Boo Yaa T.R.I.B.E. collaborated with Faith No More to put down the song "Another Body Murdered" off the Judgment Night (1993) soundtrack. Gawtti is the youngest of the family.
