This Is Hip Hop In Its Purest Form!!!! I Guess That I'm Old School, But I Don't Care. Turn Off This Mainstream Rap On The Radio, And Put This Classic Mellow Ish On!!! I Love It!!! Peace Grap Luva And Redefinition Records!!!
This beat is sick! As KRS-ONE said, Real Boom Bap! Kev Brown knows how to do it. Graps lyrics are great on the whole album. He says it as it should be said.
Favorite track: Work Is Never Done.
People may call Grap Luva slept on but from the vibe he gives off from his music i think he is exactly where he wants to be. His best work since the classic InI LP. Keep doin you Grap, much respect and bless up.
Favorite track: Work It Out - Vocal Version.
Grap Luva AKA The Younger Soul Brother is much more than "Pete Rock's brother" ... Grap is a veteran hip-hop producer and MC who has been selectively releasing timeless songs for well over 15 years. From his production work behind the boards featuring artists such as Method Man and J-Live, to his days as a member of respected rap group INI alongside Rob O; it's a fact that Grap can hold his own behind the boards and on the mic. Interestingly Grap has never released a solo project until now. This EP is a true testament to Grap's career, proving that even if it's contemporary tracks collaborating with the likes of Kev Brown, Damu The Fudgemunk and Joc Max, or old beats from his SP-1200 archives, work is indeed never done.
