12 Gauge was a rapper from Augusta, Georgia. His birth name is Isiah Pinkney. Starting out as a DJ, he moved to rapping in the early 1990s and released three full-length albums. His main claim to fame is as a one-hit wonder with the song "Dunkie Butt (Please Please Please)", a hit in the US early in 1994.
