The Gritz is a Young Black Business Entrepreneur out of Riverside California. A very serious mind with some raw perspectives conveyed through laid back slow flow.  The album is sure to start some tough buzz and even some controversy as He holds no punches in his first contribution to the Rap Game with some Hard Hitters cover topics from God to HomoSexuals. From Legit business operation to edgy Hustle. Maybe a light “Hood Classic” for the Inland Empire/Riverside Area.  The Gritz is definitely capable of captivating a mainstream following as the Next West Coast Artist. with no Hype just Business approach The Gritz is already promoting himself on a entirely different basis from The Majority of New Aspiring Rappers. The Gritz exclaims “This is not an aspiration for me, This Is an highly viable Opportunity”  and In review of the “Self EMployed” album We are sure you to concur.

Thank you.. Tyrant Label Recordings. 100!!


I just really want to  find and be able to find a nice balance of myself. Its hard for me though. I feel im so capable of dynamics that is hard to gauge myself down.  Even in attempts as I do such things I fell like I suppress myself. I just want to figure a level that I can continue as good without compromising my truth’s.  I just have a hard figure, Differentiating for myself the line between my Truth and my progression above it.  I guess I dont know how to leave it behind.   I feel an ignorance to how to represent my self above ignorance, when my derives are from so much ignorance.  how can I express myself above crazy when I’ve derived from craziness! when, If Ever, can I declare myself to be GOOD, when Im from so much BAD?  
At this point in time I feel really Good about myself and the things im persuing right now. but Its such an unfamiliar ground that I dont even trust it! I feel so much nervous energy boiling and that wants to show color! and fuck something up!   U know how your ears suppsedly ring when somebody thinking about you.? I feel like Satan is thinking about me right now and setting a trap up for me.  Should I ignore it and concentrate on my current happiness or address it and fight it? or is that the trap? I really dont know… I feel a slight bit of my crazy creeping up on me. I just ask God to continue in his favor
“crazy” adj.. defintion

the young Tyrant

Since this is my first blog Allow me to Introduce Myself

                 My name is Mark Anthony Howard. my business and nickname is”Grits” Im a 26 year old black american entreprenuer by way of Riverside C.A.  Im in my second semester as Student/ Athlete  at RIverside Community College studying Business Adminstration with a concentration in management. I have Two year old Son (Na’Sham Anthony Howard) whom I had with my bestfriend C.C.  I have been self employed as a CA licensed barber for 5 years and as a Deejay since i was 16. Im heavily focused on establishing myself as a young empire through the cultivation of my business Aspirations. I am currently speaking to investors in the funding stage of my batting cage, “The Hitters Count.”   and I have business planned to open within  a year to 2 years in February.  

       As of This February I am in FULL Motion of Self Constructing my own record label TYRANT LABEL RECORDINGS, a True Independent,Riverside CA sole proprietorship. I have been producing and mixing tracks since 2003 and have developed a catalogue of 1500 quality west coast Hip hop tracks(enough to support 2 Labels!) I have educated myself EXECUTIVELY in the field of Music and its Business and feel confident in my ability TO PRODUCE a substantial monetary gain within this field.   

     Last February I signed myself as my first artist on my TYRANT LABEL as THE GRITZ and began works on my first album entitled “SELF EMPLOYED”.a 14 track west coast Hip Hop solo ablum. Since Business is and was and always has been my motivant my entire album is a direct convey of that core of influence. The cd pertains to business, money, god, life perspective, and harsh resolve for harsh reality.

Ive  always been a quiet and private type of person. I, especially, was uncomfortable confiding in people my realities. I felt it to be too dark and too crazy and I did not want to convey that of myself and at times… I didnt know how.   All through and since my childhood Ive always felt I was very heavily weighed by circumstance .and Ive never at anytime been enabled to be my complete self…. I believe this cd to be my perspective resolve, as well as my emancipation, from those circumstance. This Album is my first relay of my absolute convictions and My absoulute truths as a person. An honest attempt to give my friends all me… From my imbalances to my devotion towards balance… from my blashemes of god to my praise of god.. From my Hustle to my Business!!  Ive always prided myself on being HOnESt TO GOD! but I never felt as if I really conveyed that people as met them. Especially being such a Introverted and quiet dude. I felt that people that new some of me grew a distrust for me because I was such a quiet element with such an obvious,cold side that i was repressing. I just never felt comfortable in any relationship, that my truth would relay as relative! So it just gave me more justification on beening such a cold MF. but through God grace I made it back from all my financial inequalities, from all my social inequalities, and all my disfucntion to Tell you the truth of who I am, Who I was , and who the fuck iM going to be!!      I am Mark Anthony Howard and   I am THe Gritz! a real person, through real adversity, with very realistic resolve!

                                                           Thank you for reading …..sincerely                                                                                                Mark Anthony Howard…. (The GRitz!)
