Biography

There’s one thing to know before attempting to understand Grip Plyaz and his music: YOU WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND GRIP!

Just like with most artists, everything Grip does he believes to be perfection—and it is. Grip as an artist takes being yourself to a whole new level. When in the studio, not only is it just Grip himself, but he doesn’t give a f*ck about anyone or anything else. He’s a purely untainted artist, one who doesn’t care what’s popular or the norm. When making new music, it’s him + the beat + the hook and then the lyrics are born.

Grip Plyaz was born and raised in 4th Ward Atlanta, which is home to a few other big names in the industry (Young Jeezy, Slick Pulla, etc), but Grip is definitely a rarity out the hood. Being born and raised in the south’s melting pot, Grip appreciates music from everywhere; snap music, Miami bass, 808, 90s rap, Too Live Crew, Outkast, Anita Baker, Al Green, Akinele, Too Short, 8Ball & MJG, Goodie Mob, Gucci Mane, Pastor Troy, DSGB and many more.

So it’s only natural that when people hear Grip’s music they hear a little of everything, but really nothing they’ve heard before. With production influenced by everything from techno to old skool hip-hop, listening to Grip’s music is like playing the original Nintendo with your little sister who insists on moving around and jumping when Mario does.

Grip began his journey through the music scene in Atlanta in the late 90’s with his friend Zoo and other half of the rapping duo, The Noboies. The Nobodies. Show after show, the duo quickly caught the attention of artist manager, Coach K (former Young Jeezy manager, and current manager of Hollyweerd, Rob Wonder and Muffy).
