Produced by Bionik

Something new from the Griff off his Ashland Chronicles 2 project, which is due out in the new year. This is a record about losses due to gun violence. Says Griffen:

“Its not about gun control, but moreso controlling your gun”.

Mixtape: Griffen x Sade – The Paradise

| September 12, 2012 | 1 Comment

When you saw the “x Sade” in the title, you may have thought Griff actually tracked down the beautiful recluse, and was able to nab her for a duets album. Well, that’s not exactly the case, but Griff and producer Bionik have taken some of Sade’s best ‘sounds’ and flipped them in to beats to rap over. You get the concept, right? I always enjoy these type of flips, so you can count on me diving into the album. If you remember correctly, Griff and Bionik did this three years ago over Prince samples (download that here).

Three impeccable spitters give us a cohesive project with inspired bars with slick production to match.

Stream their dream below. No reason to be anti this.

“We just got tired of the friendly state of hip-hop. Like, MC’s would rather compliment each other on their shoes than to see who got better rhymes. It’s all geared towards clubbin and sex, which is cool…but what about the bars?” says Griffen, “We have a supreme appreciation for lyrics and like-minded attitudes towards the art itself…If what’s popular right now is all you’re rockin wit — then we’re Anti-That. Basically.”
