Why couldn't God have taken someone from Awful Records instead of Grip Plyaz?


Fuck! A sincere R.I.P to he who moonlighted as ShyDney Poitier AKA Mr. It Ain't Hip To Be A Hipster. Time goes about its relentless work of making everyone look and feel like shit until we pop our Vans, but Grip Plyaz's music will live on for doz of us who appreciate D4L and Dungeon Fam in equal measure.

Perennially underrated, Grip was the rapper whom the whole ALT-lanta rap scene owe their careers to, Webster's definition of a #problematicfavourite, and an absolute guv'nor at makin' a lot out of a little, as my best of Grip Plyaz playlist still proves. Let's hope homie went out all cum blazin' the way he wanted.



So, so sad. Young Thug said it best.

why even say something like "take someone from awful records" ...thats just lame to wish something like that, joke or not.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I'd gladly sacrifice OG Maco to a volcano to get Grip Plyaz back.
