If you are not familiar with Grand Opus, it’s about time you get familiar. Grand Opus is comprised of Joc Scholar and Centric. They dropped two incredibly singles last year and this, their third, hmeans their new album, Forever, is around the corner. Dropping on March 22nd.
Their sound is ill and this time they bring in the mix a couple of heavyweights in Planet Asia and Fashawn.
Wow. We featured one of their original singles last year, and now that I see a new video, I am reminded again exactly how dope these guys are. I love Centric’s production ability. I still listen to his project from more than a
few years ago (shit, five years ago), The Alter Ego. And as far as Joc Scholar is concerned, I don’t have a lot of material from him, but if this song is consistent with his overall capabilities, he is something special. I really hope there will be a project in the near future because these guys knocked it out the park with this song.
This is the kind of music we need in 2014. We need new faces bringing new takes on that traditional hip hop flavor. I really enjoyed this track from Grand Opus which is comprised of beatmaker Centric and emcee Joc Scholar. The track has that nostalgic feel without sounding a bit dated. I hope there is a bigger project attached to this song.
New joint from the emcee Cyrano Sinatra and producer Centric. Trouble features guest rhymes from Skyzoo and Trife. Centric lends a banging, yet slightly funky, production to cover all the auditory bases. Sounds dope by all my standards. Sinatra and Centric have a collaborative project dropping, Back 2 Lyfe. As of yet, there is no said date.
You need some music to get you over the hump this week? I got ya. Here’s an anthem that will get the blood pumping. The beat and the emcees go high energy. Centric and Trife have a winner right here. It’s not too complex, but it doesn’t need to be when you have a head nodding beat and some charisma on the mic device. Dope…
