The Gritz

Im just a very Hard, Wide, and Deep Perspective of a Man. I think my perspective is what sets me completely apart from any such relative. My musik is very demonstrative, and progressive. I believe I promote the Ideal of SELF and the awareness of it thoroughly and I intend to stamp it as my Niche. My first album “Self Employed” is my baby!! this album symbolizes to me my emancipation of MY SELF. I love this album so much and it is so dear to my spirit, because it is my spirit and my spirits first voicing!!! Ive always been such a reserve and internal person. Anybody that knows me… knows that… but I believe this is my first offering of MYSElF in full documentation over the beats that completely epitomize my Style and My Soul. This CD is were Im at and WHere I Been. and the commencement upon the Journey towards where I wanna Go!!! please Listen to my Heart and buy My SElF EMPLOYED album next Spring.

Rock the bells Tour

Nas, Raekwon, Common, Lauryn Hill, Mos Def & More Kick Off Rock The Bells Tour in the IE [Videos]



Some of hip hop’s finest acts kicked off the 2011 Rock The Bells Tour at San Bernardino’s San Manuel Amphitheater yesterday

According to the Los Angeles Times, two of the sets that stood out were Nas and Lauryn Hill. Both of whom performed their classic albums ‘Illmatic,’ and ‘The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill‘ in their entirety.


No album better captured that dichotomy than the evening’s emotional core, “Illmatic,” with Nas aided by the album’s lone guest star, AZ, and its legendary producers, Pete Rock and DJ Premier. Backed by a set piece of the Queensbridge Houses projects and clips from four elements of the hip-hop bible, “Wild Style,” the all-black clad Nas brought the “dungeons of rap” to the Inland Empire.

Other acts on the bill included Erykah Badu, Mobb Deep, Cypress Hill, Ghostface Killah, Mos Def and Common.

Next stop for the tour is August 27 at the Shoreline Amphitheater in San Francisco.
