As part of our ongoing “Rap’s New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist Holy Grind from Chicago 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, Holy Grind! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?
Holy Grind: I didn't choose to be an artist, artistry chose me! It's my calling to reach out to the masses.
"Never base your success off of another man's success"
What about concerts? Do you play live?
I give concerts on a regularly.
Best punchline you ever wrote?
I know I make this seem easy, it's all in the wrist, though my jumper wet/ I'm talkin bible pages I flip so aint no turnin back/ I flip flop no'd on the devil without any mats/ Firm landed in my faith, Lucifer he resentin that/ Not referencing gazelles but boy I got my vision back/ I changed watching Fruitvale now a spiritual diplomat/ Appointed by Judah to tactfully manage in delicate situations/ Legal to operate outside the realms of your limitations/ Holy Grind
