GrandeMarshall is Allen Iverson’s “Practice?” speech on wax: incisive, headstrong, and not here for your bullshit. From his teenage 800 and Mugga Man mixtapes to last winter’s My Brother’s Keeper LP, Grande has built a catalog of high-grade, highly personal Philadelphia rap music that answers to no one. RISK/REWARD is his latest statement piece, eight new tracks featuring likeminded Philly MCs (Tunji Ige, Pauly Sue) and producers (Noah Breakfast, HeavenInStereo) in the service of one singular, head-nodding vision. Trust the process.
Born and raised in Seattle, Aaron Cohen moved to Queens after finishing high school. He was quickly embraced by the New York rap scene and has since released multiple projects via Decon/Mass Appeal Records and Mishka Records. Cohen has toured in the United States, Europe and Asia. His latest project, entitled Off The Ground, recently premiered on XXL.com.
Alexander Charles is a rapper from Philly, previously part of the ‘Ground Up’ hip hop trio. A true lyricist, Alexander has recently embarked on a solo career.
