What I like about UK Hip-Hop is that it is mostly Hip-Hop, as in what I call Hip-Hop. As in banging drums, snapping snares, ill bars, good punch-lines and some organic musicality’s. That’s why I guess I love this album so much. I mean it’s already being tipped as one of the biggest independent UK releases and it’s kind of easy to see why. It has that real Hip-Hop essence to it, like how a Masta Ace or Task Force album would have.
The album immediately got my head my head nodding with ‘Musical Life’ kicking the album off well, before being followed by the massive ‘Hard Times’ which features Genesis Elijah, a track that has been played on the BBC. One of my favourite tracks has to be ‘Life Is…’ which has a brilliant sung hook from Dani Appadoo and an excellent guest verse from Kyza.
Other notable tracks included ‘British Banger’; ‘Move’ which again features Kyza alongside one of favourite rappers at the moment Iron Braydz. Tracks I wasn’t feeling so much was ‘Rich & Famous’ and ‘Going Under’, the nine out of eleven tracks isn’t bad. Grit Grammar has delivered a superb debut album that any real fan of Hip-Hop has to admire.
Review by Stuart Patterson
Firstly thanks for taking time to do this exclusive interview for www.HipHop4Days.com. Let’s start at the beginning. How did you get into making music and when would you say your career started?
I would say my career first started after I broke my leg in the 8th grade then died down for awhile then I got back at it about 6yrs and music was always in me, I just didn’t know if I wanted to be in front or behind the scene.
From when you started to now, what you consider being your biggest tracks or releases?
My current single “No Kin of Mine” is the biggest thus far.
How would you describe the music that you make?
My style is best describe as a lyrical storyteller that invokes thought and incites crowds with substance filled songs that deal with real life emotions, thoughts, and dreams.
Have you done many collaborations, if so who have you worked with and what was your most memorable experience?
Nawl I haven’t done that many features as of yet…at least none that have been released yet.
Hip-Hop is changing all the time. How do you feel about Hip-Hop in 2010, who are you feeling and how is the game treating you?
Well I’m still jamming 2 Pac, Scarface, Bun B, Z-Ro and Beanie Sigel mostly and a lot of the music out now is because of the dance song trend but that’s about to die out…the game is treating me like it treats everybody else, u got to keep working & progressing and the cream will rise to the top.
Tell me about the label you’re with, even if it’s your own label. Tell us who is involved and how many people behind the scenes are helping you?
Well as of now I’m unsigned and mostly doing everything by myself but I got the hustle of a major.
The music industry is changing from CD’s & Vinyl over to MP3, stores are getting closed and on-line shops are starting up. Do you think CD’s are dead or do you think it depends on the genre & artist?
Nawl cd’s aint dead it just depends on the genre & artist cuz not all fans are buying off the internet.
So where are you from exactly and have you ever done any local gigs?
I’m from Houston, TX originally but moved to Galveston, TX when I was 8 and moved back to Houston when I was 18 so I rep Houston but the hood is 53rd Oleander Homes in Galveston and yea I’ve done plenty of local gigs.
Have you done any big gigs or played live with any big artists? If so tell us what is was like and what playing live means to you.
Well every show is big to me cuz I appreciate everybody that came out and it don’t really matter who I’m sharing the stage wit that particular night I try to own the stage when I’m performing, no matter whether I go first or last.
Hip-Hop is sometime viewed as negative music and in the media often gets a raw deal. Do you think that Hip-Hop should be more positive and that artists have a responsibility to the youth?
Hip Hop is a reflection of reality and if the media thinks its negative well maybe they should try living in poverty & pain and barely having the essentials to live for the most part but parents that really are parents always finding a way to provide and never letting their kids know how bad their situations really are cuz mommy and/or daddy always made something outta nothing, then tell me what kind of story they would have…artist have a responsibility to be a positive role model to their kids and teach them right from wrong but I don’t see how you can expect an artist to raise your kids, that’s your job.
Can I get all the You Tube URL Links to all your music videos please?
Can I get all your website links, facebook, myspace, reverb nation, twitter, etc.
