Featured artist: Grim – The birth of a legend from New Jersey
As part of our ongoing “Raps New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist Grim from Long Branch to talk about his recent music, his upcoming projects, his career advice and his overall experiences being in the music industry and he did not disappoint…
Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, Grim! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?
Grim: After making it a sport to memorize my favorite rappers songs I decided to embark on my own journey to let my voice be heard and try to do my part to be the change i want to see in the industry.
The best advice i ever received was to treat my music and my brand as a business. I had to learn that just putting songs on Soundcloud wasn't enough. I had to tell my story, people aren't just concerned with the art anymore, they want to know everything about the artist. So you must be completely open with your fans, treat them as family.
What about concerts? Do you play live?
i have yet to play live. But plan to in the near future.
Best punchline you ever wrote?
