Grip is an American hip hop artist from Atlanta, Georgia. Grip grew up in Decatur, a city just east of Atlanta, where as a young age he was a witness to the drug activity and crime that was routine to his surroundings, to which both friends and family would eventually succumb.
It is this environment that would set the foundation for the sound and stories that you hear illustrated in his musical content on his debut record ‘PORCH’.
Grip began writing lyrics at the age of 12, before it would lead him at 17 to self teach himself to record. As an artist Grip quotes, “I want my music and influence to live far beyond my years on this earth.” From Grip people can expect hip hop that blends nostalgia from the 90’s with today’s hip hop scene. Grip cites heavy influence from OutKast and Nas.
