Gripz Poetic Literature Mixtape

Since, say, mid-June, I've been getting hit up on twitter by this MD spitter by the name of Gripz. Normally, that ish bothers me, mainly because I'd rather get tracks sent to me via email, but something about homey's consistent persistence piqued my interest. In speaking to him, I found out that he works at a fast pace, completing tracks daily, or so it seems. And this isn't like a rough draft - this is 3 verses, hooks, pretty much finished product. Over the last month or two, I've posted some leaks to his material, most of it coming from this mixtape, Poetic Literature, which is hosted by DJ Whiteowl, Anno Domini Records (Anno Domini produced a lot of these tracks) and DJ Heat. Throughout this tape, dude gives you bars. Bars bars bars. Bars for days, speaking on varying topics. The homey Wordsmith co-signed him (hell, he's featured on two tracks), which is a big look for a budding DMV spitter, and at being only 20 years old, I wonder how he will grow over the next couple of years...

See this as the perfect introduction to a budding MC from the Maryland area. And if you're digging this, know that Poetic Literature 2 is on the way!

It's not a game - Gripz' even had a track featured on DeMar Derozan's official mixtape:
