Back in 2018, COMPLEX had him on watch as Atlanta’s “Rising Rapper.” In the following year, he was the artist we needed to watch – now, no one’s playing – GRIP is the rapper-raconteur, a rare breed, that you need to stop sleeping on.

His latest single, “Peaks & Pitfalls,” imparts the ultimate enrapture: A nostalgic rap-type beat, produced by Latrell James, paired with an elevated hook, “I know with all the peaks they’ll be pitfalls / Just don’t quit y’all,” a track you have no choice but to get a GRIP on.

The mellifluous track is the latest of GRIP‘s recent string of singles this year, following the release of his EP, Proboscidea (2020), and the “defiant” album we still have on heavy rotation, SNUBNOSE (2019).

GRIP maintains his authenticity track-in track-out, a pure lyrical incendiary – spitting the rhymes that ignite the substances of survival, aspiration, and all-in-between, the East Atlanta native is one-of-a-kind and we’re right here for it.
