Midwestern rap movement United Grind deliver the dynamic new visuals for their hard-hitting single, “Give It Back,” ahead of the release of their highly anticipated debut compilation, Grind or Die (Vol. 1). The Grand Rapids, Mich.-based producer Big Shaady produced record is a bare-bones gritty jam made up of thick basslines, crunchy breakbeats and vocal samples and moody texture that serves as the perfect backdrop for Ohio’s Vice Souletric and HiJinks and Detroit-based emcees Sand Man, Nu Face, Lee Harvey, and Juggernaut June to deliver the verbal goods. Each emcee gets ample time to shine as they go flow in tandem giving listeners a dynamic performance laced with original and engaging rap schemes.
The visuals directed by Reel Dope Cinematic blend a minimal colour palette with dope edits and effects to match the energy of the emcees and the result is as engaging as they come.
Stream “Give It Back” on major DSPs here. Grind or Die (Vol. 1) is due out March 28th via the crew’s own United Grind imprint.
