“Like Jeezy”, that clearly depicts his personal ups and downs.

 On the chorus, M.A.R. says, “I seen it all like Jeezy”. A lyric in reference to Young Jeezy, Atlanta rapper with the hottest product in the South. On the track M.A.R. offers several comparisons to Jeezy’s lifestyle, “All my n!99as hustle sell that snow like they Jeezy”.

one concept presented by the emcee is the idea of people assuming his life is easy because they are unaware of his pain.

About Bettie Grind:

For his 2nd studio album being released digitally, Bettie Grind, created a diverse collection that both women and men can enjoy which includes his current single entitled #GROOVE that is impacting the radio airwaves. In addition, Bettie Grind released -2- street /underground records from the project that includes the hit track #MercyOfTheCourt that depicts a life that many men are accustomed to being a part of coming from rural areas such as what this emcee has experienced in the Carolinas.

Bettie Grind have gained support by many media and radio outlets to include: Power 98 online, Urbanbridgez, Spinrilla, Hip Hop Vibe, Hip Hop Enquirer, All Hip Hop, HipHopSince1987, Djs Doing Work, Hot 108 online, Source Magazine,, YoRaps, VladTV, MTV, Hip Hop Weekly, Hip Hop Wired and many more.

Coming from a city whose Hip-Hop identity has been for the most part over-shadowed by the presence of NASCAR, the banking industry and high profile murder cases; BETTIE GRIND has been determined to take advantage of his opportunity to bring the eyes and attention of the Hip- Hop entertainment industry to a virtually untapped market, the Carolinas. BETTIE GRIND has the charismatic styles of the Rap tycoon Jay-Z with the lyrical energy of Rap mogul Ludacris. With the rapidly growing success and support of his followers, BETTIE GRIND quickly ceased the opportunity to leave his foot print on the crown of his city by performing with Young Jeezy at Summer Fest in Charlotte, NC which then led to him sharing the stage with Lil Wayne, Big Boi and the Purple Ribbon All-stars to name a few and most recently Plies. BETTIE GRIND is always in the forefront of those who strive to make a name for his city in the music world. He hit home with the collaboration with Anthony Hamilton on the remix of the unforgettable ballad “Charlene”.

Being co-signed by Drum Squad founder and super producer, Drumma Boy, who also produced one of his most successful singles, entitled “Dammit I’m Fly.” BETTIE GRIND, HOOD SUPASTAR ENT and the Carolina movement continues to break ground with a dynamic stamp that will definitely make history, with plans to expand his fan base on a worldwide manner!

I was intrigued when I first caught wind of the collaborations between Freddie Gibbs and Madlib. Madlib has a formidable lineup of past collaborators, including J Dilla and MF Doom, but teaming up with a gangster rapper didn’t seem like the likeliest of matches. However, after a trio of successful EP’s (Deeper, Shame, and Thuggin), I was convinced that this was a match made in Heaven and stood by in eager anticipation of Piñata.

From the opening notes, it’s apparent that Madlib’s beats are what will determine the album’s mood. Madlib’s melodic, instrument driven samples provide a mellow vibe to the album, but don’t think for a second that Gibbs was in any way at a disadvantage. Gibbs’ flow complements each track perfectly. I honestly can’t find a song that he sounds out of place on. Gibbs’ claim to fame is his sincerity and honest depiction of his life. None of that is lost in the unconventional production style that Madlib delivers. Gibbs floats over each track and Madlib sets the table perfectly. The guest appearances compliment their respective tracks well and Piñata spreads the wealth, getting help from Danny Brown, Scarface, Raekwon, Domo Genesis, Earl Sweatshirt, Cassie Veggies, and Mac Miller. Even ESGN collaborator G-Wiz gets a verse on the cypher-styled title track.

More so than previous Gibbs projects, Piñata is reflective—a memoir of sorts. This is primarily due to the ambiance set by the instrumentals. While it works well, hardcore Gibbs fans might feel like Gibbs’ ferocity doesn’t come through as strong as it has with different production. At some level, that is true but shades of the old Gibbs ring through. On simpler tracks like “Scarface”, “Shitsville”, and “Real” (the much publicized missile aimed at Young Jeezy), Gibbs’ gravelly voice spits out anger in the fashion we’ve come to expect from him. However, the tempo and ballad samples on tracks like “Robes”, “Broken”, and “Lakers” require a softer delivery. The flow and content of all these songs are great but they make for a milder and more introspective album than some Gibbs fan may be accustomed to. “Thuggin” is probably the track the best joins Gibbs’ flow and Madlib’s production. Madlib and Gibbs share the spotlight equally, marrying a bold instrument heavy sample with Gibbs’ signature growl only slightly tempered by the track.

I’m comfortable with saying that Piñata is a masterpiece, despite knowing why some people might not like it. Producers of music are very much like film producers and calling a producer like Madlib is akin to calling on an animator to help produce your movie. My only criticism of Piñata is this; having an animator tell the gritty stories that Freddie Gibbs delivers can go to one of two extremes. The animation can either soften the impact of tough subject matter or revel in the depths and hurl the listener deeper into the artist’s world. Piñata falls somewhere in the middle. Similar to Anthony Burgess’ use of slang in A Clockwork Orange tempered the gruesome details, Madlib’s production tempers Gibbs’ stark narrative of his criminal history. You see the lion at the zoo but he’s behind glass. That being said, the lion is still looking as formidable as ever. I’m looking forward to more from Gibbs and Madlib and I hope they continue to push the boundaries of this style.
