Berkeley-native, Marty Grimes has rapidly become a prominent artist in the Bay Area’s rap scene. His music embodies the slang and strut that the region is known for, bringing a new voice to the iconic Northern California lifestyle that bred him. Over the past six years, he has become accustomed to touring the country with his childhood best friend, G-Eazy, writing music on the road and gaining momentum along the way.
If your ear is even remotely tuned to the pulse of the music industry, the name Marty Grimes should already be familiar. A budding talent from Berkeley, California, Marty has rapidly become a prominent artist in the Bay Area’s rap scene. His music embodies the slang and strut that the region is known for, bringing a new voice to the iconic Northern California lifestyle that bred him. Since launching his professional career in 2013 with “Bang Bang,” a single Co-Produced with childhood best friend Gerald “G-Eazy” Gillum and Kevin “KDE” Beggs, Marty’s been hard at work both the studio and on stage - all while preserving his unmistakable sound.
His most illuminating work yet, “Martyjuana” (2017), is a candid mixtape that shows the listener just what Marty Grimes is made of. Twelve introspective tracks weave his story with unique flavor, keeping the tone upbeat while detailing a broad range of topics – from the journey to fame, to life’s simple pleasures. This is following the phenomenal reception of “Through the Smoke” and “Nobody Said It Was Easy” (2014 & 2015), also produced by longtime friend KDE.
Marty has since been featured on music’s premier online and print publications, including Billboard, Revolt TV, VIBE Magazine, The Daily Loud, and Sway’s Universe – this in addition to his more than 20 million total plays on SoundCloud. Over the past six years, he has become accustomed to touring the country with G-Eazy, writing music on the road and gaining momentum along the way. Today, he is focused on further evolving his brand and continuing to make outstanding music for his fans.
West Coast artist/producer, Wes Period was raised in La Habra California but found roots in Los Angeles when he began seriously making music in the early 2010s. Bringing a bright and often hazy lyrical flow to a variety of production approaches, Wes honed his musical style on early releases like 2011’s Friendly Fire EP and early singles, often centered around partying and the always sunny California lifestyle. In 2015, he dropped both the Photosynthesis EP and the “Champaign Champion” single along with being handpicked as an opener by rapper Vic Mensa to open several of his shows. In 2016 he teamed up with Ye Ali and singer Tommy Genesis to form the side project baby.daddi, releasing a four-song EP that summer. With more exposure than ever before, he completed work on his long-labored debut LP, Late Bloomer, which saw release in early 2017.
Wes’ music fell into the hands of hit songwriter, Justin Tranter (Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, DNCE), who quickly signed Wes to Justin’s record label, Facet Records in partnership with Interscope Records. Since then, he’s released a track called “Trap Star” and his song “Big Bag” was picked as the theme song for “Ball in the Family,”based around the life of LA Laker’s point guard, Lonzo Ball. His mixtape “Pretty Words” will be coming Feb. 16th on Interscope Records.
