Heavens Demon is the culmination of years of effort from behind the mic by Gripz.  And while the man is a prolific writer, this is actually the first full length project from the man since 2010, when he dropped Angels vs. Demons.

The time between projects was spent releasing a single here and a single there, but in 2016 the beast is unleashed.  And what you should know is that his pen game has only gotten better since he first began.  When you listen to this album you are going to experience the pain and the angst this man feels in every bar.   You are going to rock with emotion of self-doubt and then build up to the uncompromising confidence he possesses.

Gripz is an artist that needs to have his voice heard and his talent exposed.  Heavens Demon is the vehicle by which he gets that done.  Give it a listen.

Single You Out: Gripz – Heavens Demon (prod. by Dizzee Beats)

Oh wow!  You would be hard pressed to hear a better flow in 2015.  Gripz completely decimated this production from Dizzee Beats.   This is some of the best rhyme content I have heard from Gripz.  He is bringing the diabolic front in center with intricate wordplay and clever references.  His lines referencing George Zimmerman and Donald Trump reflect some serious tenacity.

The other thing I like, is that Gripz slowed down the flow and allows the listener to absorb every line.  Y’all should be loving this!
