This has been in my head all week;
really feel the vibe it has.
And it's where I got my sig from.
Just wanted to share such a chill song with my forum goers, even if you don't like rap you should try it on, cuz it's not rap.

it's straight Hip hop


[The Grouch:]
You ain't artsier than me
Cause you got sideburns and a vintage tee
I said you ain't artiser than me
Cause you pluck a guitar, that ain't #in bizarre
You ain't artsier than me
Cause you live in Los Feliz, bitch you ain't Jesus
You ain't artsier than me
I got a colorful vocab, watch the low jab

So what you're vegan?
It shows in your presence, you be geekin'
And you been seekin' the same light
Speakin' of game like the enemy, hang tight
I got a tail about 6 foot 1 by infinity
Full of sun, rain & potential energy
All you saw were the K-Swiss
Clean, crisp, creased jeans means this
So you thought and dipped
My walks hip, thoughts; hipper
Unzip the zipper
No I don't wear hemp or drink liquor
And that don't make me the man, just a little bit sicker
Spit kicker with an eye for the big dipper
From an island cliff emerges a loud whisper
And I'm proud of this, it's my art
You doin yoga just to look the part.

You ain't artsier than me
Cause you chop up breaks and you dig in the crates
You ain't artsier than me
You just a trendy lesbian, dreadlock thespian
You ain't artsier than me
Cause you make weed brownies and knit wool hats
You ain't artsier than me
You pseudo-elitest old-school sap

Don't let an 808 scare ya
Shake stripes off your shirt and clear the whole area
I'm a humanoid too
And if you're cool with me then I'll look past the void in you
Instead of through
I'm down with VW's and flossed-out caddys on 22's too.
I bang for good
Fools, kill for nothin'
I build for somethin'
Family and peace
Hand me the piece
I'll hit it, I'm social
Hear my opinion
I'm proud, I'm vocal
Local in a foreign place
More digital than dusty
But trust me, I be tourin' space
You be whorin' at a comfortable pace
You be skippin a chore to jump in a race
I be bumpin my bass like you collect comics
I'm not weird, I'm honest

You ain't artsier than me
Cause you only read books, don't watch T.V.
You ain't artsier than me
Cause you shop at Whole Foods in open-toed shoes
You ain't artsier than me
Cause you speak real soft and drink Chai tea
You ain't artsier than me
I recycle too, I'm kinda like you

I just look cleaner, grown demeanor
Wear deodorant, registered voter
And a tree hugger too
Not in these clothes
Me lova you but it's gotta be both ways
Most days I'm earthy, stay grounded
Often it's a paper chase, I'm well-rounded
Straight to face, townish
It's all boundless
I make it sound universally dope
Overcome adversity, reshape the worst of me
Do it for the love and release it commercially
Like a blockbuster started at Sundance
Can't stop man you only get one chance
Presentation is key, hesitation ain't see
Innovation is my A-R-T
Dedication is free, occupation is me
Innovation is my A-R-T

You ain't artsier than me
Cause you drive a hybrid and carpool with three
You ain't artsier than me
Cause you a 16th Mexican, you ain't ethnic
And you ain't artsier than me
You just a broke ass poet with the same old cadence
You ain't artsier than me
We was conscious first, welcome to Earth

What appeals to you about this "music"? It's really not my style because to me, it's really boring, it sounds typical, there's no use of melody or harmony (you know, music?), and the lyrics are bereft of any meaningful concept (in my opinion).

I think modern "popular" music has slowly degraded to stock trash that anyone with a computer and a crappy microphone can create relatively easy. Same looped beats, same techno orchestration, and same "talk" singing instead of actually having a real voice and talent.

Anyhow, to each their own, I suppose. If it works for you, then crank it up and rock on!

that video is dope, but I'm not a fan of grouch, I just don't think his flow is innovative, he ain't artsy like me. I want some dirt and grime in my hip hop ya know, not all this clean grouch stuff. check out my soundcloud for real innovative rap. including cuss words, haha.

A couple of Grouch tracks that I DO like are as follows... (I'm not really a fan TBH)



Beat and lyrics are really good on this.





And this 'cause it has Acey & Ab in it....





Two dope tracks right there..

The flute sample and the dig on hipsters.
We can't all like the same thing, that'd make the world boring.

The Grouch is one of my favorite artists. The video for Artsy is very unique. Make sure you check out his album with Zion I called "Heroes in the Healing of the Nation"...really nice content on that one.
