The name Grafh might not ring bells in certain circles. It's not surprising, considering the rapper has undergone a tumultuous career of peaks and valleys. I remember first hearing him on "Food" well over a decade ago, being impressed by his effortless flow and bravado. Unfortunately, he went on to be plagued by a variety of industry ailments, and for that reason, was relegated to folk hero status. In fact, Grafh ultimately went on to join the case of Love And Hip-Hop, which he alludes to in this very song.
"After love and hip-hop, the hoes 'hey baby," raps Grafh, "they just discovered a n***a like Drake's baby / J. Cole said that show was as good as over, I was blackballed so for me it was good exposure." He continues along those lines, showcasing the same flow that drew attention all those years ago. Should Grafh's name ring bells, be sure to check for this one.
