Da Grym Reefer
- Proud Father
Da Grym Reefer officially started his career using the moniker Renaissance featuring on Dr. Gigglez 1st compilation “Roastin N Toastin Vol. 1”, released in 2002. He recorded his first solo song, a song titled “Frigid”. This song opened doors to feature on future releases by the young independent label headed by Dr. Gigglez, known as Jacktown Records, commemorating their home town Jackson, TN. He was later invited into the label as a solo artist and went to work on trying to learn the ins and outs of the music business from recording to producing to marketing, he decided to go with the moniker “Da Grym Reefer” by the time he was featured the second compilation released by Dr. Gigglez. He released “Live From H8erville…(Da Suic-Psycosis E.P.)” in 2005 and released his first full solo effort in 2006 “Volume 0: Phukk U (2 All Who Doubt)”. The album was quietly released to a lukewarm reception but solidified him a place as the most enigmatic artist on the Posse Up Entertainment roster and a driving creative force behind the scenes. Da Grym Reefer proved he is a force to be reckoned by the time he released “Da Nickel”. With a groundbreaking production style and cinematic vision for detail, Da Grym Reefer is one of few artist that could make a hit or deep thought provoking rap ballad and make the video for it as well. Da Grym Reefer is currently working on his full-length second release “Sophomore’s Curse”. “I named it Sophomore’s Curse because I want to show them I am fearless as an artist…I take chances and don’t try to sound what everyone else is doing right now.” he said, when asked about his new album.
