Get Grip Good

Bummed to hear the sad news about Grip Plyaz's battle with cancer and spiraling medical bills. There's a host of ALT-lanta rappers nowadays that owe their whole shticks and careers to Grip who need to chip in some money right now, yet they're all missing the key ingredient which make his music such a blast: that it's made by a disgracefully funny bastard who legitimately did grow up bumping Dungeon Family and D4L in equal measure.

At his best, Grip is one of Atlanta's finest purveyors of minimalist-rap on some La Mont YoungBloodZ type shit. To try and draw attention to his current situation, I put together a best of Grip Plyaz playlist for Audiomack which showcases his sheer commitment to bad taste, his ability to say so much with so few words, and his distinctive knack for making barely-there tracks knock like Black Market. You can donate to the Get Grip Good fund HERE and bump the playlist below:

No Died (In Yo' Pussy) because that was always a better concept than a song, IMHO.

That's shit. I liked the tunes you posted enough to download and listen to Purp Wind & Fire. Went back to it quite a few times.

Things like this remind me I should pay for more music. I buy a bit but not as much as I should.

Ray Lewis really should have been a retail single.
