PR: New Grip Grand Album "ESAE" Available NOW

The new album from Grip Grand, ESAE, is out June 5th!

Here's the info straight from the man Grip Grand himself:

"So…… You want my new album free? Well, I’m happy to give it to you after everything you’ve done for me. BUT– I worked very hard on it. Creating it took a lot of time, energy, heart, and soul. If you really feel like supporting my music, please DONATE when you download. You can name your own price. Think of it as a tip jar! Any amount is appreciated, and all proceeds go directly toward funding more music and keeping my infant son off the streets. So, without further ado…

Download ESAE here. Right here. Click on these words, and they will take you to the site with the album on it. You know how the Internet works, right?

OK, if you can’t bear to part with your hard-earned change, or you already bought some of these songs when they were digi-singles, or you’re just a heartless wretch who would prefer my child to sleep in a box on a bus bench somewhere, here’s how you get ESAE for FREE: Click on the link above. “Buy” the album. When you name your own price, make it zero. It’s just that simple! And I promise I won’t hold it against you. Freeloader. Alright then. I was gonna write a bunch of other bullshit about the album, but just go get it already. Use your own fucking ears to tell you what it’s about. That’s what’s up.

Peace and respect,
Grip Grand

CDQ MP3: L.E.P. Bogus Boys - "Showtime" (prod. Jahlil Beats)

CDQ MP3: L.E.P. Bogus Boys - "Showtime" (prod. Jahlil Beats)

Chicago has been making some serious waves in hip-hop over the past six months, with artists emerging from across the city to create the city's most powerful movement in years. To help capture the scene's excitement, some of Chicago's biggest DJ's and tastemakers, including DJ Victoriouz, DJ Twin, DJ Pharris, and Moe Bey, came together to release The New Chicago, Vol 1. a tape that features the likes of Chief Keef, King Louie, Lil Durk, and more.

The L.E.P. Bogus Boys have been - and continue to be - at the forefront of the Chicago movement, and in proving their position, the Southside Chicago duo delivered what was easily the standout track from that mixtape with "Showtime". Now, L.E.P. are excited to release the non-DJ CDQ version of the track.

"Showtime" is produced by Jahlil Beats, who's also been making quite the name for himself in 2012, and the pairing of Jahlil's energetic, snare-led production and L.E.P.'s dark street tales come together as a perfect fit. Count & Moonie each deliver stellar verses, but the true standout moment comes with the hook, elevating the track into the perfect, catchy street single.
