Member of underground rap group Politic Live. At a certain point, hip-hop's new generation has to realize that there are hip-hop artists whose primary purpose is not to make "clubs bounce" or ramble on about chart positions, but to provide insight. Sharp with detail, and always drawing peculiar parallels, Dirt Gritie, is an MC that may be ghost writing for your favorite rapper in the very near future. His lyrics are not closed minded and limited to the stereotypical lyric content of most rap artists. As a lyric architect, Dirt Gritie is consciously aware of the element necessary to capture a deeper and more meaningful thought in his music.
Often profound and philosophically interesting, Elympia's Gritie is an escape from the norm of today's sound alike MC's. Exploring unconventional hip-hop territory and breaking new ground, Gritie's lyrics are refreshingly authentic. Lyrically, Gritie sets up his songs so that his listeners are able to relate to his characters and their circumstances. When acclaimed for his skills, Gritie reputes "Nasty Nas" for inspiring him to develop a strong lyrical element in his MC package. But just as their is a fun and comical side to Mos Def that helps balance his serious commentary, so is there in Gritie’s full range of lyrical dynamics.
A solid hip-hop artist in all areas, Dirt Gritie declares, "Rap is merely an aspect of the culture. My specialty is hip-hop, for the simple reason that I do plan to do it all."
